Personal Device Entertainment, A Lot Better On American Airlines Due To…

American AirlinesAirlines have been eliminating seat back inflight entertainment screens in recent years. With this move, some airlines offer free movies and TV shows to view on your personal device.

There are a couple of problems that I’ve had with this switch, with the main one being where to place the device. Holding your device while watching isn’t the most comfortable thing to do. One hack that I’ve tried is to use a ziplock to hang your phone in from the seat back.

Some Interesting Google Maps App Updates


Considering how bad my sense of direction can be, I used to get lots of use out of my Garmin GPS. However, I haven’t had much need to turn it on over the past few years. Besides using it during our Quick Euro-Roadtrip (back in February), I can’t remember the last time that I’ve actually powered my Garmin on!

If you put aside the slow response from the touch screen and long waits for finding satellites, my Garmin works just fine.

The thing is, I found a much easier and more convenient GPS- the Google Maps app on my iPhone. (The Google Maps app is also available for Android.)
