Reindeer get their own navigation application in Lapland

In the northernmost region of Scandinavia, Lapland, large herds of reindeer move around the wilderness freely. They are looking for food, adjusting to seasons, or simply escaping mosquitoes during the summer months. The number of reindeer is strictly controlled to ensure the animals don’t strain too much the sensitive Arctic environment. Every reindeer belongs to a herder, and that’s where modern technology can help.

GPS navigators that can route motorhomes and campervans via roads that suit large vehicles

Many travelers who drive a motorhome or a large campervan in an unfamiliar territory may encounter roads that are too narrow, have low bridges, or are simply too bumpy and twisty for a large, relatively heavy vehicle. Following instructions of an ordinary GPS navigator may lead the driver to a place where it is difficult to continue and difficult to turn back. Fortunately, a few specialized navigators for trucks are available that can help.
