Waze — a social turn-by-turn navigation mapping app

Posted By on September 24, 2012

After being a little (ok, a lot) disappointed with Google Maps being replace by Apple’s Maps app in iOS, I was anxious to give something else a try — so I downloaded, activated and have started to update Waze . So far so good with using the turn by turn navigation on my way to a couple addresses and manual updating of road hazards, police locations and “automatic” updating of slow traffic spots … but like all GPS “ping” oriented apps, battery life suffers (a high priority accessory is an Apple Lightning connector for the car).

I’m not endorsing Waze yet, but if you are a socially active GPS mapping kind of person, give the iOS and Android OS app a try (short video explaining Waze below).
