The same way we do now. Drive there.

But when traveling to places unknown or unfamiliar far easier than paper maps that can be outdated and cannot identify road closures, detours, construction, etc.

I like Google Maps for finding things at locations (restaurants, hotels, tourist attractions). I prefer Waze for navigation.

Do you need GPS to go to the grocery store? I hope you don't, I know I don't.

Do I need it to travel across the country to places I've never been? Yes it's very helpful.

Way2, I thought the same thing. But real time traffic and crowd source hazard tagging is helpful even on short, familiar, local drives!

Also, I have one of these mounts in one car and different brand in other vehichles. I have the phone just off the 2 o'clock hand position. No blocking windshield, quick glance when needed, all while charging wirelessly.

We frequently use our GPS to get to the local grocery store when we're in a new area that we're not familiar with... [emoticon]
