Waze - GPS, Maps, Traffic Alerts & Sat Nav Descriptions
I said a... turn right here! Imagine being guided home to the voice of Elvis Presley. Dream about creating a list of appointments and tap the screen to access their locations. What if friends nearby could update you on accidents, traffic jams, speed cams and the presence of police? Wake up, fasten your seat belt and enjoy the ride. Waze makes this all happen. Free, accurate and feature-packed, the beauty of Waze resides in its community-based updates. You won’t get fancy 3D buildings or topographic data like Google Maps. Its millions of users who are actively and passively sharing data points would make any cartographer proud. Drive along as Waze will notify you via popups of incidents within a preset radius or along a chosen route. Waze will also display popup ads for nearby business but only when the vehicle is stopped. There are also voice commands like ‘Drive Home’ or ‘Report Heavy Traffic’. Also included are social features (facebook connection), game mechanics (earn points and find digital treats on the maps), a Map Chat feature that lets you leave messages and photos on the map for other drivers to browse and a fuel price tool where you can find and report the latest updates and changes to the prices. And yes. You can set up Elvis as your GPS best buddy!
