We’ve come a long way from the days of physical maps kept in the glove box. Now, many different apps can help you navigate, fuel up, and park. Since smartphones are here to stay, it’s essential to use the apps that will help you the most. Here are the top 5 apps to use while driving.
While there are many different navigation apps, Waze is crowdsourced and provides real-time information about the road ahead. The community of people who use the app, also called Wazers, can flag hazards on the road. Hazards can include hidden police cars, potholes, roadkill, road closures, and more. The navigation is especially helpful in Atlanta traffic. It has a bar that counts down the minutes of a traffic jam when it recognizes one building. While all of these features are helpful, the app also offers turn-by-turn navigation, necessary for any navigation app.
Gas prices rise and fall, so being able to find the cheapest gas is essential. GasBuddy crowdsources information to provide the best gas prices and covers 150,000 gas stations in North America. Having this data means that it can give accurate and affordable gas station recommendations throughout the country. Like Waze, users can correct and update gas prices at the pump, providing up-to-date and accurate information.
Since electric vehicles are becoming more accessible, many people are switching over. However, finding charging points can be difficult. Plugshare provides data for over 440,000 charging stations, including ratings and availability. The app allows users to filter stations, add stations, and plan trips with its simple interface. The app boasts more than 3.6 million reviews of different stations and over 600,000 photos.
While owning a vehicle provides a sense of freedom, it is also expensive. Drivvo allows users to keep track of expenses and maintenance costs to understand their vehicle’s cost. The app organizes mileage data and repair costs, as well as provides summary reports. When users input information, the app begins to track the performance of the vehicle and schedules reminders for the next maintenance appointment.
It’s safe to say that these apps will help improve your driving experience and save you money in the long run. However, it’s important to remember that Georgia is a hands-free state and that driving while distracted can cause accidents. If you’ve suffered an injury in an accident, you’ll need to speak with an experienced attorney focusing on personal injury. Here at Greathouse Trial Law, we want to help you understand your rights.
