I'm a Wazer and I've found Waze to be not only more accurate than my Garmin, it provides more detail. The only thing it can't do is multiple stops along the route. It's warned me of accidents, road hazards, police and slow traffic. It even offered a detour that saved me a half hour of being stuck in traffic on the Interstate. I wouldn't leave home without it. But it runs on my Android, is that off topic?

What's on your iPhone - great apps

Duolingo is my app of choice these days.

I also like Waze, and the voice options make it even better, but Elvis is no longer an option on mine. Maybe I need to log more miles and graduate from a baby wazer to get all the goodies, and Elvis back?

I'm a Knight Wazer and I see no Elvis option. You mean for the mood or car display icons? I've never seen an Elvis.

If I travel, Waze is running and so is my Garmin. The wife doesn't like it if both voices are on so I have to make one really low. If Waze says go left and Garmin says go right, I go left. Garmin has taken me on too many 1 lane back roads. Waze has never led me astray, but I like the Garmin Up Ahead bar and via point information.

I like using wazer and Google maps together. To hear Elvis giving me directions on Waze I went to settings,then sound, then voice, and today I see colonel sanders, Stephen Colbert, and several other voice options

We like Waze, though it can be over-optimistic about our ability to make quick lane changes and sharp turns, because it doesn't know about Rocinante behind us. Otherwise, generally quite good.

I miss the Arnold Schwarzenegger voice on Waze. It was a limited time to promote the Terminator movie. It had me laughing frequently. Waze still works well though.

Hey, that's cool, I had never noticed that before. But on mine is "navigation guidance", never opened that because it said English.

I know that for Garmin you can record your own voice. It prompts you with what to say but you can say anything you want. That can make for a very interesting guidance system.

Let's try Stephen Colbert for a while

I use M.A.P. Never led me astray and never runs out of batteries.
