In this digital era and in the world fully overloaded with information, technology plays a very vital role in our day to day life. Today we are not afraid to take any unknown or less traveled road alone because we have the power of Google Maps in our smartphones/devices which are GPS Enabled. Just to make things clearer, Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based navigation system accessible anytime and anywhere if you have a GPS receiver. Yeah, it is also very easy to use (In fact, I was recently navigating through the streets of Mumbai all alone on my very first trip using Google Maps. Thanks to Google for making such a wonderful app.)

But at times you might want to some forests or deserts or on some expeditions which are in areas far away from the city and it is possible to not have the network access there.
