[Ad] Exciting news! You can now take The Travel Bunny with you on your trips. Download the GPSmyCity app to help you discover destination highlights and my favourite hidden hot spots in cities around the globe. With self-guided walking tours in the palm of your hand you’ll never get lost again…
I won’t actually be hopping out of your case when you unpack, although that would be fun, but some of my articles are now available on GPSmyCity self-guided walking tours. That means you’ll have a virtual Travel Bunny with you on your travels. I’ll point you in the right direction, recommend restaurants or help you discover hidden city gems.
You might be thinking why not just print off the article and take it with you or bookmark on your mobile. If you don’t mind using trees for paper or paying roaming fees (that’s if you even have a signal) then that’s fine. But there’s actually a better way and it’ll save you money on expensive data.
Why use GPSmyCity?
GPSmyCity is a free app which you can download and use to carry a whole collection of travel articles around with you. You can save the articles you’ll need on your trip and access them when you want to, either on-line or off-line. More importantly for a small fee you can get off-line GPS-guided use as well so you’ll have directions right at your fingertips right when you need them. A GPS-guided travel article has GPS co-ordinates embedded in it together with a map and the route used in the article. It’s like having your own personal tour guide show you exactly where you are on the map and giving you directions to your next place.

How to use GPS-Guided Travel Articles
First off download the free app to your phone from the I-tunes App Store or Google Play. Take a look through the articles and when you find one you fancy just download it for free. There are thousands of travel articles featuring cities all over the world. You can browse by city, or (hint!) choose some of mine below. Once you’ve downloaded the article to your phone you won’t need roaming, an internet connection or Wi-Fi to read it. You can dip in wherever you are; on your flight (even in flight mode), by the pool or as you explore an exciting new city.
If you need a GPS-guided article for directions then a small upgrade fee is payable per article. Or, you can subscribe annually to all city walk guides and articles which gives you access to over 6500 city guides with GPS-guidance. Bargain. You’ll need an internet connection to upgrade but once the article is downloaded on your phone app you can view it any time without a connection. It will show you where you are on the map and the best route to your next chosen place using the GPS co-ordinates embedded in the article.

Brilliant .... I used Garmins cityXplorer for many years ... same idea, but each city map cost about £10.00 and I just downloaded it straight to my GPS. Made for walking ... and tourists. Fantastic tool, but they don't do them anymore.

That's quite expensive for one guide. I can't wait to use the ones I've downloaded - it's going to make my next trip so much easier :)
