7. Organize Your Life with the iPad’s Apps > Get Directions on the Map

Get Directions on the Map

NEED TO FIND YOUR way from Point A to Point B, or at least from Albany to Boston? To map your route, tap the Directions button at the top of the screen. A two-field box appears. If you want to start from someplace other than your current location, tap in the Start box and type in a new point of origin. In the End box, type in the destination address or tap and choose from your list of bookmarked sites, recent visits, or contacts.

Once the iPad gets the starting and ending points, it calculates how to get there by car, mass transit (like train or bus), or on foot. Tap the car (), bus (), or walking-person icon () to get a set of step-by-step directions (including alternate routes, if available). If you’re in the middle of nowhere, driving directions may be all you see here. (To reverse the starting and ending points so you can get back home, tap the icon.)
