The go-to app for cars on the road is Waze, which features one of the biggest communities that reports traffic conditions and gas prices to the apps online database. The beauty of Waze is how simple it is. Users just need to have the app open on their phone while they commute.
From there, the app determines where there’s a lot of traffic and whether you should reroute to avoid it.
More active users can add even additional information about what’s holding up traffic, including locations of accidents, police speed traps or road hazards. Waze can also provide alternate routes in case the commonly used road is littered with slow-downs and problems.
Cross-shopping prices at nearby pumps can be easier than ever. Use GasBuddy to find the cheapest fuel around you, helping to save you at least a few bucks per tank. It might not sound like much but over the course of a year, you’ll have saved some serious dough.
Allowing you to use your dashboard mounted iPhone safely, for $1.99 (about £1.31, AU$2.84) iCarMode offers up a big buttoned display, making it simple for you to activate a music player, call your friends, and check for places nearby.
Custom app shortcuts support apps such as Spotify, Audible, and TuneIn Radio, saving you from having to look at overly small buttons every time you want to make an adjustment on your trip. A night mode means it’ll fit into the aesthetics of your car too.
For older cars, it’s an ideal substitute for built-in dashboard systems that more recent cars offer.
