The summer is coming to an end, which means many of you are looking to take one last road trip before being locked inside for the fall and winter. The days of going on road trips with a map and compass are long behind us. There are countless apps flooding the market that give GPS directions, food stops along the way, and even the best thingsto do in Seattle.
Here are five amazing apps to help you take the perfect road trip.
Waze Navigation & Live Traffic
Waze is the new GSP app changing the market. This app will adjust your driving route in live time to find the quickest route to your destination. Waze is controlled by the app users who will notify the company of traffic, construction, and anything that could delay your drive.
As the user, you will earn points based off the information you provide to the company. This turns driving into a game you play on your phone. Since this app is updated by the users, it will be more effective in large cities rather than rural communities. However, it will still function like any other GPS app no matter the community.
