DETROIT - July 2, 2014: With the price of flights skyrocketing and the majority of families trying to stick to a sensible budget, summer vacations mean packing the kids into the car and hitting the road. But thanks to new technology, unimaginable even just a few years ago, paper maps, a stockpile of plastic toys and disposable cameras are a thing of the past.

It's a new era of family road trips and cars like the 2015 Buick LaCrosse that come built-in with OnStar 4G LTE, allow passengers to connect up to seven mobile devices (tablets, laptops, smartphones, etc.) to a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot in the vehicle so that everyone can stay connected and entertained.

Technology has changed the way we travel and according to the 2014 Road Rage report 78% of Americans are using technology for directions, entertainment and more. In addition to planning ahead for their trips, technology like OnStar allows travelers to make quick, last minute changes to their itinerary.
