Gadget Love: Waze

We love gadgets and social technology. This is a regular feature of the newest things that are getting our attention.


Waze is an application that was developed to help you outsmart traffic. Waze socially sources information about traffic and reports it back to you. So, if you’re curious about traffic on a new route, Waze might have information that’s been submitted about traffic, speed traps and accidents. Their Navigate (directions to) feature gives great directions, features a nice map and even audio directions. This application is available for iPhone and Android.

So, really?

So, really, Waze has become my default navigation tool. I love the maps, the voice guided directions and the extra stuff is fun, although I don’t use it that much as a driver, I do use it when I’m a passenger.
