I keep paper maps in my glove box, even though I use google maps and waze.

Move aside, Google Maps, Apple Maps and GPS: Why people still love their paper maps


Even if everything navigation is pointing in the direction of GPS, you'll never tear some folks away from their paper maps.

In Northern New Jersey, Stephanie Kivett Ohnegian keeps an atlas in her car because “there are places where the GPS signal doesn’t work” or “the routing is ridiculous.”

Out in Portland, Oregon, Kimberly Davis has paper maps in her earthquake “go bag" – just in case.

And in Newport Beach, California, Christine McCullough has another practical reason for keeping the once-ubiquitous thick, spiral-bound Thomas Guides in her car. As the kids prepare for their driving tests, her edict is “no phones.”
