Discover the top GPS applications.
Depending on your age, you might remember a time when you used printed directions, watching the odometer to track the miles until your next turn, and an emergency road atlas to guide you. These days, computerized NAV is available on nearly every new mobile phone and car. While all navigation apps produce the same general info, what and how the information is shown can be quite different. With so many choices available to select from, how can you decide which one is the best? We’ve concluded that our top 3 suggestions are Waze vs Apple Maps vs Google Maps. Apple CarPlay® is installed in so many brand-new vehicles that it may appear to be the leader, but Waze and Google Maps have their own built-in advantages.
The most robust map application in this review is Google Maps as all of the data comes from the Google search engine.
Since CarPlay® is installed in many new vehicles, Apple Maps might be the easiest navigation app to use on the market. The one disadvantage of Apple Maps is that drivers need an iOS device to use it.
Waze was the first to feature some form of crowd-sourced traffic data, though other navigation applications now use the data as well.
It should not be a shock, but the best NAV App depends on how you use it. If you happen to get lost easily, the Look Around feature on Apple Maps will be extremely helpful. If you use NAV for your next cycling road trip, then Google Maps has you covered. But, if you just want to get somewhere in the quickest time possible, then Waze is your only choice. Waze, Google Maps, and Apple Maps all have their own standout features and you truly can not go wrong, no matter which one you choose.
