It's no fun to rent a car and then struggle with both the unfamiliarity of the vehicle and navigating an unfamiliar area. This is where Hertz's new app that connects with its in-car NeverLost GPS navigation system comes in. Before you travel, download the NeverLost Companion app, which allows you to plan your trip, including stopping points. Then begin navigation the moment you get in the car. The navigation system pairs with smartphones to make and receive calls, access the contacts file and can be used to call points of interest, like a nearby restaurant to place a reservation.
Other features include weather and flight information as well as access to a concierge who can help search for destinations, create custom trips and send route information directly to the system. Hertz charges an additional fee for use of its navigation system.
