Having started driving for two years, I cannot count the number of times my phone has helped navigate to places I've never been and breeze through the traffic in Metro Manila.
Before I go through the applications I am using, I would like to enumerate the essentials of a techie motorist in manila and going on a road trip.
1. You need to make sure your car is always in good condition. Regularly have your gas, air, oil and water checked. Make sure you have a spare tire and tools in hand should you need it. Also keep important numbers stored in your phone in case of emergency.

3. Charged Battery. This is both for your car and your gadget. I always keep an Iphone car charger with me when I'm driving. Since I am connected 24/7, it uses up a lot of my battery life. With the car charger, I can use the idle time driving to load up on battery life to take pictures, calls and browse on stopovers.
