I leave the sounds off on Waze. Even though Google owns Waze, Google will not redirect as frequently as Waze in my experience. Google will jump around in the city when it loses the GPS signal, but Waze just assumes you are on the right course. That can be annoying if you miss an exit with Waze because it doesn't redirect you right away.

I love that you can download individual states, use them completely off line, they don't track you when the app is not in use (I asked them); the maps are easy to read, even with polarized sunglasses on; and they are so detailed that it will show you where the nearest public restroom is, trails, individual boat docks, buildings, bike paths, peaks and valley names and info, etc.... FREE.

Waze kicks ass. Have used it in 3 countries! As a matter of fact, it got me to Solihull from London today :-)

We used the default iPhone navigation program in England and Scotland last month and it worked perfectly. Clockwise round-a-bout navigation is without a doubt a two man exercise, GPS or not.

If you don't need any data that's great-otherwise that gets expensive. I take my Garmin over every time. In England roads don't change much so a six year old map is fine

I fair better with a road atlas because I either memorize my route or write notes on a piece of paper and tape to the windshield of the bike.

Gps works best in wide open spaces.

I can't even count how many speeding tickets waze has saved us from.

Not in the Defender, mind you.

The greatest fun can be had by causing someone else to get a speeding ticket.

Yes. But it makes me feel kind of guilty. For a minute anyway.

As long as the cop is occupied with someone else, he's not watching me speed past.

I think I got nailed with a red light camera the other day. I was in unfamiliar territory and didn't see the light changing.

Don't have a problem with Garmin in cities or open road. In Tunnels it estimates your position until you come out. Least useful time with GPS was out in Utah where there are so few roads, you just don't need it.

The latest update to Waze is a big improvement. It removes the Anime and Manga style to cleaner and less cluttered look.
