Do you wish you got a little more from your GPS? Would you like to know when there is a traffic jam up ahead and the best way to get around it? Would you like to know which gas station on your route home has the best price? Waze.com is a GPS with turn-by-turn navigation app for smart-phones that gathers information from other Waze users to give you information on traffic, gas prices, alternate routes, road hazards, and more. According to Waze:
Waze is all about contributing to the ‘common good’ out there on the road. By connecting drivers to one another, we help people create local driving communities that work together to improve the quality of everyone’s daily driving. That might mean helping them avoid the frustration of sitting in traffic, cluing them in to a police trap or shaving five minutes off of their regular commute by showing them new routes they never even knew about.
Waze supports iPhone, Android, and selected Blackberry, Nokia and Windows Mobile devices. Waze also has a blog.
