I am taking my family sometime in the future - special thanks to of the Covid-19 - around Europe for a three-week-long roadtrip. We had been planning this excursion for 2 months, now we have time to rethink the means of transport. These weeks I had several problems with Google Maps and Waze too, but none of the other gps applications meant better solution. These are the two most common and hopefully reliable mobile applications that should be used on a trip more than 3000 kms long. Do you think I should trust any of them? Which gps applications have you tried that would fit my plans and would drive us in the middle of nowhere?
Which countries follow left-hand traffic laws?

We also occasionally see the phenomenon in real life, with spinning car tires and whirling ceiling fans. Scientists call it the Wagon-Wheel Effect. What causes the “backward” effect?
