I would use this again

I, like most of the members of Proformative, travel by car from point "A" to point "B" during the day. Either for business or personal reasons, we need a reliable GPS to help guide our journey. Waze is that product.

Having used several other tablet/Smart phone based GPS software, I have found the Waze provides clear instructions, but as a social tool, it allows you the user to be the recipient of the diversity of the user-base.

How this works is two-fold. First, while traveling a user has the ability to inform other users of changes in traffic, such as a heavy traffic condition, accidents, police, hazards, red-light and speed cameras and the like. Once updated, all users not only have access, but depending on the issue, a verbal warning will be sounded by Waze giving you ample time to be on the lookout.

Secondly, should you find an error with the map, you have the ability to either tell the volunteer area managers who will investigate and make the change or do it yourself. An example is Waze told me to make a left turn. But the road sign said “No left turns”. I updated the map and now Waze and everyone else will get correct info.

There are some issues, such as local knowledge (although if you go constantly between point “A” and “B” and always take the north route, Waze learns this and only provides you with the north route). I have Waze set to fastest route, which sometimes has me making large number of left and right turns at stop signs versus getting stop at red lights.

Be aware, should you lose internet connectivity, you lose the GPS!

All in all, it is the best GPS on a tablet/smart phone I've used. I’m not alone, Google recently bought them!
