Waze – GPS, Maps & Traffic

Waze ICONWaze – GPS, Maps & Traffic is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join drivers in your area who share real-time traffic & road info to save time, gas money, and improve daily commuting for all.

Google Maps is famously for planning a route or finding nearby locations, but Waze is definitely a better app for the long distance travelers. General navigation is just as good, but it’s also very easy to add in rest stops or detours on the fly, as you can search for businesses or places and quickly add them into your route.

Just by driving with Waze open, you’re already contributing tons of real-time traffic information to your local community. You can also actively report accidents, police traps and other hazards you see on the road. Get road alerts along your route and find the cheapest gas prices around you shared by the community. Plus, you can add friends, send locations or keep others posted on your arrival time.
