FANTASTIC APP. A MUST FOR TRAVEL
A fantastic app a brilliant tool in your journey planning and throughout any trip..... The traffic information is bang up to date in real time quicker than any radio station reports or motorway information signs and its brilliant for the A and B roads in normal day use.... Why is this because its people like me and you giving the information. Its a no brainer. You just put in your destination and Waze tells you if there's any traffic problems on your journey, to work, shops or major Christmas trip....
YOU make an effect on the map your looking at, speeds, crashes, standstill, slow moving traffic weather you name it you can tell Waze Even petrol prices. As a disabled passenger i find it brilliant way to help and be involved with our journey.
I use Waze for almost every journey, I am lost without it (literally!) It helps avoid traffic during peak times and the journey planner is really useful to get an idea of how long a journey is going to take based on the time of day I will be travelling. The 'send ETA' function is great when picking someone up, and can easily be sent en-route very quickly and easily. I also find it easy to locate my destination using the search tool, and it is great for navigating to specific and obscure places that you might not expect to be on there. I recommend this app to everyone, and hope it's popularity continues to grow; this is the one that every driver should have- and it's free!
I keep forgetting!
I keep forgetting that I've got this great app loaded on my phone. I always turn to google maps as my go to navigation aid.
Recently on a holiday to Spain google maps let me down. Several times I reached my destination to be in the middle of nowhere. Told to turn on a non existent road and told to take the 3rd exit on a closed roundabout. I put my destination into waze and hey presto I was taken to where I needed to go.
The beauty of waze is that it is up to the minute because of people like Napier bt.
I wouldn't recommend updating the map whilst driving but if you've got a navigator it's a great way to help your fellow motorists out.
