TGIF!!! Time to take the gang on the road. The weekend starts with Roadtrip Fridays with and Asus ZenFone Go. With an Android Lollipop 5.1 OS and 2,070 mAh battery capacity, the ZenFone Go is an incredible companion for roadtrips.

But first, use Google Maps to chart your course.

I prefer Google Maps over other map and navigation apps. Maybe because I am more used it than other maps apps. I use Google Maps to check out our driving or commuting time and possible routes. It also shows me rest stops, gasoline stations, food stops, and other important destination or stop points along the way. I find that Google Maps is a good guide in most parts of the Philippines.

Some of my friends prefer Waze. I only use Waze in urban centers and places with heavy traffic. If you think there’s an even better app out there, let me know.

Don’t forget to take photos of fun and funny moments during your roadtrip. And of course, tonsss of selfies.

Capture moments with ZenFone Go’s 8MP, f/2.0 Aperture, Auto focus with Flash rear camera. And those selfies will definitely look good with a 2M, FF front camera. And of course, share these moments through social media.

And for those long drives, you will never get bored with streaming apps.

My favorite is iFlix. Hours or a day before long trips, I download films and series episodes on iFlix so I can watch them uninterrupted during the trip. Once downloaded, I can watch it seamlessly even if there’s spotty connection while on the trip.

There are two important things I do on road trips. First is to eat well.

Days before my trip, I usually research on Google, Looloo, Trip Advisor, blogs, and other online sources for the best food outlets and dishes to try in the place I am visiting. Save these information and keep it handy in your ZenFone Go.

And finally, connect with friends in the area. Or meet new friends.

Use social media to you know… socialize. When I am traveling alone, which I usually do, I contact my friends in the area through social media and invite them to meet up. I also ask them for advice and information about the place. And if along the way I meet new people, I ask to connect with them on social media. Roadtrips are great opportunities to reconnect with old friends and to connect with new ones.

So buckle up. Prepare well and open yourself up to new experiences. Enjoy Roadtrip Fridays with Asus ZenFone Go.
