Retro Tech Tuesday: Avis Satellite Guidance

Sure today your phone can more than likely give you GPS-based driving directions. But back in 1994, that was definitely not the case. Unless you had the money to spend thousands on one of the early GPS units, chances were you had to stick to maps like everyone else. That is unless you rented a car from Avis. As you'll see in the commercial below, thanks to the wonder of the Avis Satellite Guidance, even 17 years ago you could get a taste of the future.
