Waze: Traffic conditions and accidents
Although the navigation App also conscientiously fulfills its main task of navigating with voice prompts, it also offers some added value: the worldwide Waze community supports each other when they are going to work, to parents or to the long weekend. Together, users of Waze Social GPS and Traffic provide each other with a wealth of real-time information on congestion, accidents or radar controls. So you are always up to date.
In the check, Waze even recognized an undershoot of the usual average speed of the chosen route and suggested independently the report of a Traffic jam. The more drivers are on the road, the more accurate the calculation of the fastest route.
The developer suggests you should use the App every time you drive. Even if you do not want to be navigated, Waze records any deviations of the map. So if you drive the new street in the neighborhood, the App will report that to the server. As a result, the cards are always up-to-date. But of course that suffers from the battery.
If you are a passenger, you can exchange messages with other Wazers in the area and ask for a restaurant tip. Funny: If you follow the suggested route, you regularly collect sweets that give points. You can compare your score with other users.
In the meantime, the Waze App has been improved visually as well as functionally significantly and subjected to a real beauty cure. The modern maps look very chic, the operation and the start of a ride go much faster from the hand and reporting the Traffic situation has been simplified.
