[Deal Alert] Choetech and Tronsmart both have two packs of USB Type-A to Type-C cables on sale for $7.50 or less ($5-7 off)

If you've bought a new Android device in the past six months, chances are pretty good that it charges via USB Type-C.

A new update, 0.0.42, for Trips has arrived on Google Play, adding some neat new functionality for even better ways to plan your trips.

By far the biggest thing in this update is the ability to have Trips prefer saved places when creating a day plan.
