Google map can't help + asking for recommendations

asking for recommendation and report of travel experience
5 years ago, July 6th 2018 No: 1 Msg: #205175  
German city center street is really a confusing place. I even got lost there, I was thinking that It would be okay since I have my phone with me but unfortunately, upon checking google map, there was no street names on it. Luckily there are local people that helped me with the directions. Next time I get there, I'll surely bring a gps tracking device with me, I've heard they're pretty helpful and working accurate in today's generation. Any recommendations if anyone has an experience with it? Thanks in advance. Reply to this

You can try downloading it offline(google map) and that will appear but yeah sometimes google map doesn't emphasize the street names and sometimes the location paths aren't visible. I think it's because google map satellite doesn't update often that's why location details aren't always up-to-date. However, may I ask what gps tracker are you using? because I have mine as well, a trackimo gps tracker and it works fine with me tho but it would be much better if you'll always bring map and compass with you especially when traveling to other places.
