WAZE - GPS apps for drivers

Recommended Posts

5th Gear

Just learned about its existence. Quite interesting. You can see feedback from other users, etc.

 

If more people use it, then the real-time traffic update will be more accurate.

Yes it is, but not enough people in SG are using it so... [:(]

This Waze app is ok only. If i were to rank it, it would be below average. The map wise is hopeless(but my expectations were low for smth which comes foc), the only thing good about it is the feedback of the traffic conditions from other app users. Sometimes the app server would crash [rolleyes] . And it sucks the batt dry rather quickly as compared to my other paid app M8 papago. One of the reason is when you are in a tunnel it will use your 3G network and search for your location, this just drains the batt. Searching for POI must include "Singapore" or else it would suggest POIs of other countries as well. Rather disappointing, overall.

The newest version of Waze is really good, should give it a try! Auto reroute for the fastest route along your journey, nice!

used it some time back.. uninstalled. the routing isn't accurate.

only good for community alerts for hazard and cops.

 

for nav, i find that brut google is much better.

I am currently using Sygic.

But its a paid app. Free Trial period of 7 days.

So far not bad IMO.

Don't know if anyone else has tried it and what do they think of it.

 

I am using it on my Android device.

Just used it and it brought me to all the places I needed to go

in Kuantan and Terengganu.

 

Ruriimasu: I remember that Google maps dont offer turn by turn navigation for Singapore users. Unless they changed this recently.
