Littleton CO Coffee Shop Gets Chevy #DayItForward Surprise


2016 is a Leap Year. This means we get an extra 24 hours this year. Chevrolet has challenged us to spend that extra 24 hours helping out our local community in a #DayItForward campaign. On this first installment of John Elway Chevrolet #DayItForward we find ourselves at Solid Grounds Coffee House in Littleton, CO donating $5 towards a customers order. We learned that even the smallest gestures can go a long way. We are looking forward to our next #DayItForward project coming soon. Stay tuned for more!

5 Free Apps For an Epic Road Trip

There is no better feeling then cruising down the open road with the windows down and your latest Road Trip 2016 mix blasting. Often times this feeling is short lived. As the trip drags on and your copilot gets hangry, you run into a traffic jam, and you end up down a back road with no plans for the night. You had good intentions of this being a character building trip with the family, but it has turned into an all out screaming match and you are second guessing what you got yourself into. These 5 free apps will help keep your family bonding experiment on course.

  1.  The Traveler: This is a great app to organize your entire trip as you go. Your virtual road trip scrapbook allows you to capture photos and videos and mark them on a map as you move along your journey. Compatible with Google maps, it takes pictures and videos through the apps action bar. Available for Android

  2. RoadTrippers: Are you making your annual migration to see relatives? Spice things up a bit with the RoadTrippers app for iOS. This app helps you discover the road less traveled by finding obscure small businesses and attractions on your custom route. 
  3. RoadNinja: Keep your eyes on the road and the task at hand. RoadNinjas is your personal digital billboard. This app gives you the location of restaurants, gas stations, and points of interest near every highway exit. With real time gas prices and special coupons, this app is a real money saver. Available on Android and iOS.
  4. Postagram: Share your epic road trip with friends and loved ones by sending them a Postagram. This free app allows you to send customized postcards anywhere in the US for only $0.99. You take a picture and write a custom message and the app sends your custom postcard anywhere you like. Available on Android and iOS.
  5. Field Trip: Are you a history buff or museum fanatic? This free Google app will alert you of historical sites, architecture, entertainment, and more. The app talks about interesting places as you drive by, but allows you to tell the app what you are interested in by giving each recommendation a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down". Available on Android and iOS. 
We hope these recommendations are helpfully when planning your next road trip. Please let us know if there are other road trip apps you like to use and if you enjoyed any of our recommended apps. Have fun out there and drive safe!
