Waze Social GPS, Maps & Traffic

Do you drive and wish you had a friend keeping an eye out for problems ahead? There are some great navigation tools out there but I find Waze, a free iOS App with a social networking twist, to be one of my favorite travel companions. Purchased by Google for over $1B they still have a unique & quirky spin on the joys of commuting. Enter a destination & let the app run on your phone in the car. By tying together information from passive and active participants an up to the minute road situation can be spotted. With built in navigation and the ability to have community corrected maps to stay current, this is a great App. Finally someone will listen to your reports of a pothole. I used it as a passenger on a recent trip from NJ to Ohio & it was amazingly useful in spotting good gas prices, traffic backups & a ton of other information. You can even have it update your arrival time to a friend.
