Very useful and entertaining app
This application, with permission, will track your location and tell you stories about the area you're driving through. As your location changes, so to do the stories change.
In addition to that, it shows you what is around you. Not only physically in terms of roads and maps and such, but also gives you insight on nearby entertainment, restaurants, restrooms, etc.
So this app can entertain you, help you to get where you're going, teach you a little something about local history, and provide helpful insight with respect to services that you might require in the area. It's very good and comes recommended!
