With so many of us hitting the road for the holidays, travelers need all the help they can get. An update released today for Where To? fills the bill nicely.

The US $2.99 app has an extensive points-of-interest database, links to reviews and can transfer directions to Apple Maps and 3rd-party apps.

In addition to car directions, the app now features walking and public transit directions.

One feature added that I really like is the ability to send turn-by-turn directions to someone. You also can choose any destination and add it to your contacts.
