Favorite Things – WAZE
WAZE is one of my most-utilized, favorite apps on my Iphone. I use it all the time. It is a GPS mapping program, but so much more.
Get the best route, every day, with real–time help from other drivers.
Waze is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute. If there is road construction ahead, WAZE will warn you. If there is a Policeman ahead, WAZE will warn you. If traffic is slowing down, WAZE will re-route you to compensate. So it is extremely productive, but it’s also fun.
The voice navigation can be customized with voices from Stephen Colbert, C3P0, Jay Leno, or others. The voice commands can be set for long detailed descriptions, to short TURN HERE descriptions.
Navigate to the cheapest station on your route, all powered by community-shared gas prices. By working together to report prices at the pump, Waze drivers can always save some gas money.
And you can even allow other WAZE users (like your friends or family) to see where you are and/or an ETA for meeting up with them.
I love this app. It has saved me from hitting potholes and possibly even saved me some speeding tickets. Try it out today!
