It automatically will map to various sights, restaurants, pubs, places of interest that you are near.  If you like what you see, you simply tap the wand and it will grow your itinerary with the various choices you have been making.
it is also a great application to find out what is around you at all time.

It is your complete itinerary from you flights to your places to be right there at your fingertips on your mobile device.  No sloppy papers that get muddled and lost.  The best thing of all it will also work if your device is off line so when you arrive at your destination you still have your full plan all neatly mapped out to hand.
