Cool Waze, the app that is saving my driving record..



Check out "Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic"
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.waze

This app has literally saved me from at least 3 speeding tickets this year already. It's a free app that users report speed traps, accidents, traffic jams ect. Highly recommended.

Love this app, use it every time. However, it's not that great in Canada. Not enough users, so many streets are unreported.
When I'm in Estonia, I use it all the time. During the day, the map is completely covered with Wazers and pretty much everything is reported. Saved me from speed traps, debris on a road and traffic jams a bunch of times.

Great app. I'm in Canada too but it works well in my area. Just depends on where in Canada you are, rural areas obviously wont have as much coverage. I've avoided many traffic jams with this program, just need to get a good car mount for it. I've tried 3 and none are really up to my standards :S

Looks like there is an iPhone version too.

As I sit in traffic west of Cornwall I wish I had this earlier could have got off the 401 and avoided this.

Well Google Maps already has a pretty good traffic layer.

I'll give this thing a shot.

Waze traffic is live. It also provides live police trap, accident, construction reports. You can see other Wazers on the road and interact with them. You can send tracking link to someone on your contact list and they car see where you drive, all live. By the way, Google acquired Waze a couple of weeks ago.

Yea the problem with Google maps traffic is I usually check it when it's already too late. I'm hoping Waze would alert me and map out a detour.

Probably would only use it for longer drives though.
The iPhone app is a little buggy.

Great app! I've been using it for the past week and it saved me a few times on the QEW. I just created a maXbimmer group on there if anyone wants to join.
