Uncover the best GPS app for your vehicle.
If you’re a driver of a certain age you might remember the days of watching the odometer to track the miles until your next turn, an emergency road atlas, and directions that were printed to help guide you on road trips. Nowadays, computerized navigation is an option on almost every mobile phone and car. While most navigation apps produce the same general info, how and what information they present can vary greatly. With so many unique options available to choose from, how can anyone know which is the best? We have concluded that our top 3 picks are Apple Maps vs. Google Maps vs. Waze. CarPlay® is installed in so many new cars that it may appear to be the leader, but Waze and Google Maps have their own built-in advantages.
The most powerful map app in this review is Google Maps because all of the information is provided by Google itself.
Apple Maps might be the easiest NAV app to use, since CarPlay® is installed in many new vehicles. The one minor flaw of Apple Maps is that it is only available on iOS devices.
Waze was the first to feature some kind of user-generated traffic data, though other NAV applications now use the info too.
It should be no surprise, but the best NAV App really depends on how you use it. If you happen to get lost frequently, you can use the Look Around feature on Apple Maps. If you use Navigation for your next big cycling trip, Google Maps is for you. But, if you just want to get to your destination in the quickest time possible, Waze is your best choice. Waze, Google Maps, and Apple Maps all have features and you really can’t go wrong with any of them.
