With the windows down and the tunes blaring, summer roadtripping is a quintessential American past-time. Music festivals, wilderness camping, beach-side bonfires, and cross-country visits to loved ones send drivers out on the road throughout the summer months. Newly discovered routes and exciting landmarks mean lots to do while you’re driving.
At Drivemode, we are always working to improve your driving experience, and we know that you don’t want to miss a turn off the highway because you’re juggling between your music and your navigation app. Whether you’re in your own car or a rental, Drivemode will save your app preferences and give you a driver-friendly interface so you can change songs while your navigation app shows your route in the background. With Drivemode, playing your music and getting directions at the same time is as breezy as an afternoon drive down the coast.
