What is Waze?
If we wanted to define Waze, then we could briefly say; Google’s free route planning service, which is also the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app (115+ million worldwide). It helps you plan optimal driving directions based on real-time traffic and road information shared by neighborhood drivers, saving everyone time and fuel on their daily commute.
It’s easy to use Waze and great because; When you drive while running Waze, you provide and receive a wealth of real-time traffic and road information to the Waze community. Also, you can actively report and get reports of accidents, hazards, roadside checks, and any other incidents you encounter while on the move. Waze users have various alerts, and you can easily find the cheapest gas stations, but you can add friends, share destinations, or keep others informed of your arrival time.
No question using Waze has these undoubted benefits for drivers; knowledge of other drivers’ reported road accidents, traffic jams, speed controls, police checks, and fresh fuel prices at gas stations along the route. A very useful feature is that it automatically remembers where your car is parked, so it can help you find your vehicle in a larger parking lot or an unfamiliar city abroad.
