5. Check your Traffic before you hit the road

Before you leave your house, check your traffic using other iPad’s built-in app, Maps.

Using Maps not only you can find where you are, find a place, get direction from point A to point B, but also check your traffic before you even hit the road so you can make plan that might help you avoid getting trapped on a traffic jam. Maps shows you live traffic information, indicating average speeds along your route in easy-to-read green, red, and yellow highlights. (Always go with green.)*

Using digital compass, Maps can also show your heading direction right on your iPad so you cannot get confused while searching your location on the map.

Another great feature on Maps is Street View feature that allows you see the surrounding of the place you’re going to before you arrive,so you’ll recognize it when you get there. Tap to see a street-level image of where you’re headed, along with driving or walking directions. Zoom in on the image and it’s like you’re right in front of it. Zoom out to explore the neighborhood. And you can also do a virtual sight-seeing using this feature.*
