|AN android phone or tablet (or an iPhone/tablet) can run Waze which is an app that is in my opinion the best GPS device for getting places. It is better than Google Maps (even though Google purchased it I think last year), is continuously updated, gives you real time traffic (from other Waze'ers, not just broadcasts), gives you real time road hazard warnings, real time police spotting, and learns your preferred routes and short cuts around traffic problems from both maps and others ahead of you who already have gotten around the problem areas. It does use up battery fast but in a car you can just keep a charge cord plugged in while using it so when you get to your destination, you still have charge left for a full day. You do need cell/data service but it might not be that much more than your current plan with the right deal. You do not need a $600.00 phone to use it, a bargain android if reasonably current (2 or 3 generations old) works just fine.|
You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
