Determine which is the top navigation app for your vehicle.
Drivers of a certain age may recall an emergency road atlas, printed directions, and the days of watching the odometer to count down the miles until your next turn to help guide you on long drives. Nowadays, electronic navigation is available on nearly every single vehicle and cell phone. While nearly all NAV apps give the same kind of information, what and how the info is displayed can be very different. With so many unique options to choose from, how can anyone figure out which is the best? We have concluded that our top 3 suggestions are Apple Maps vs. Google Maps vs. Waze. CarPlay® may feel like the frontrunner because it is an option in so many new vehicles, but Google Maps and Waze have their own unique built-in advantages as well.
The most robust map application in this comparison is Google Maps because all of the info comes from the massive Google search engine.
Thanks to the CarPlay® integration with many new vehicles, Apple Maps could be the easiest navigation app to use on the market. Apple Maps has one disadvantage, it is only found on iOS devices.
While other NAV apps now use some sort of crowd-sourced traffic information, Waze was the first to really use the technology as well.
It shouldn’t be a surprise, but the best NAV App truly depends on what drivers need. If you happen to get lost easily, you can use the Look Around feature on Apple Maps. If you use NAV to follow your next cycling trip, Google Maps is your best choice. However, if you just want to get from Point A to Point B in the fastest time possible, Waze is your choice. Google Maps, Apple Maps, and Waze all have unique features and you really can not go wrong with any of them.
