Waze is a navigation app available for Android and iOS users. Although most phones come equipped with a navigation feature, this app features a social element that will change your driving experience. Using real-time information, supplied by a community of users, the moment you enter a destination, Waze is hard at work to find you the best possible route. Since Waze uses real-time information, it can navigate you around a plethora of driving nightmares including construction slowdowns, traffic accidents and even speed traps.
Waze will give you route options. This way you can choose to navigate around highways or toll roads if you prefer. While you travel, you will see other Waze users around you as icons on your map. Collectively you will report on a variety of road obstacles, including disabled vehicles on the shoulder, debris that has come off other vehicles, and animals in the road. A favorite feature of many users allows users to tag police officers in their various pursuits. Whether they are blind, hiding behind an overpass, pointing in a certain direction on the highway, or have someone pulled over, you’ll be alerted to their presence.
Users can report gas prices, and add pictures of their destination to help others find it later. Some users add information for businesses such as their hours of operation. This information, supplied to you by others, cuts down on the need for extra searches. The whole time you are traveling you are earning points for each mile traveled. Moving up the point charts allows you to unlock different icons, and see where you rank as a Waze user in your state. More credited users can help the Waze community by actively updating maps, they show changes that are happening with roads around you.
All of these features, and more, let you know why Waze is a great navigation app. This app allows you, and the community of users around you, to travel with ease because you always know what is in front of you. Together you outsmart traffic, getting everyone to their destination in timely manner. With Waze you can connect with your friends on Facebook and see how everyone else’s drive is going.
