Waze social GPS & traffic for iPhone

How does it work?

After typing in your destination address, just drive with the app open on your phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data. You can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way, helping to give other users in the area a ‘heads-up’ about what’s to come.

That’s about it – Waze is all about contributing to the common good out there on the road, so do your part and get involved in your local driving community today!

Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life
