Default Cool smartphone app, I highly reccomend

Well, I've known about this one for around 9 months. However, I'm a creature of habit that doesn't change routine easily. Well, google pissed me off by changing their navigation app to an experimental version without warning and not at all near ready for prime time.

So folks, I switched to Waze GPS apps. The cool thing about this app is not only that it's free but it's interactive in real time. What do I mean? Other drivers interact to let you know of accidents, broken down cars and most of all, cops either sitting and waiting or on the move. I used it today for the first time and it was so cool, I had to come here and recommend it.

FM,
I too loved the navigation app. It disappeared with the last Google Maps update. It is now included in Google Maps.

I downloaded Waze, and it looks good.

If you want the blue navigation arrow back on your phone go to Apps> Manage Apps> Find Maps and click "uninstall updates." Your blue navigation arrow will return.
