Gosh, I’m punny.
But seriously, sure, GPS is a useful tool for getting where you want to go when you don’t know how to get there. But have you ever followed your GPS’s route and ended up in a quagmire of a traffic jam.
Something new and better is on the way. Introducing Waze, “a social mobile application providing free turn-by-turn navigation based on the live conditions of the road. 100% powered by users, the more you drive, the better it gets. Join the community of drivers in your area today!
Have a windows mobile or symbian smartphone? Want to help us build the first driver-generated dynamic map? We’re seeking a group of enthusiastic users to participate in the very, very early stages of the waze project.
