People should use the gps map app waze as it allows you to see and report all sorts of road conditions such as weather and Gardaí checkpoints.
Have you tried Waze? They were recently bought by Google and share a lot of data/information with Google Maps. "Community driven", which means that users report stopped cars, accidents, objects on road, etc. I use it daily with about an hour each way commute and have convinced a lot of people to try it out.
Get the Waze app as well and help other drivers know about police, radar, accidents, and construction in the city. As well as being aware of all those from others marking them live.
I was driving I-5 between Eugene and Portland one wintery day a few years ago and was driving with the Waze app running like I usually do. All of a sudden it had me take some random exit that I almost passed because I wasn't prepared to get off the freeway at all. Anyway I did it more out of curiosity than really wanting to save time or anything. The road it routed me to was 35 mph and I thought, "this is stupid!". The road paralleled I-5 in a couple spots and I came around a corner (as I was looking for another on-ramp getting ready to turn Waze off) and saw this huge back-up in both directions of I-5. Two tractor trailers and what looked like 10 cars/suv's were scattered across both the northbound and southbound lanes. Both directions closed for miles, except for the little road I was on. Waze had me drive about two miles farther up and I jumped on the freeway with zero traffic except for two cars that were behind me that I assume were also using Waze. Amazing.
I made those widgets in KWGT (used to use Zooper Widgets) by importing full size image files.
The trick to high resolution icon is to go to Google Play on web browser, Waze for example, drag the icon into new tab/address bar, and delete "=w300-rw" at the end of URL and hit enter, BAM! super large icon!
Phone app that tells me where all the fishermen are (among other tidbits of info)
Mag ik je aanraden om Waze eens te proberen? Dit is een app gebaseerd op de wegdata van Maps, met ingebouwde functionaliteiten voor melden van flitsers en vertragingen e.d.
Use the Waze app. Users will report when they see speed traps and you'll have warning. It's available for android or ios and it is free. Works great.
Waze in the Google play store link, Waze for IOS link, I think
A little context for people that don't know. Waze is a free app that uses data collected from users to provide real time traffic information which gets layered on to a conventional GPS/nav app. It's free. Google bought them for something like a billion.
What is great about Waze is the real time traffic data let you avoid brutal rush hour accidents like this one so you can pick a different place to get on the freeway or choose a new route altogether. It even let's you know where red light cameras are and people often use it to report speed traps and things like minor collisions and construction. This app has saved me many hours in traffic.
The app is Waze. Android, iTunes. Awesome app where people input this information. Saved my ass a number of times.
Or, you can just use Waze. They're everywhere this week. Google Play | iFruits
The waze app has a feature to make it nice and easy to report these potholes. It also makes it simple to point out shakedown points to fellow travellers.
Only you can help prevent highway robbery!!
Use Waze because 80-90% of cops running radar are on there.
Save music and podcasts locally to your phone for rural areas in case you lose service. Similarly, use offline maps in Google Maps so you can navigate and reroute without service.
Keep nicotine gum in your car so that if you get too tired and start falling asleep at the wheel, you can use it to wake up long enough to find somewhere safe to pull over and rest. It will wake you up in about thirty seconds and wears off quickly once you stop chewing it so you can fall asleep. Even if you would never smoke or vape, consider this...the gum is not really harmful and it could save your life.
Get a lock box and pack it somewhere you can't reach it while driving. It is considered a separate search space in traffic stops and, should your car get searched, they can't open it without a warrant. If it is a combo lock or password (something you know), the Fifth Amendment protects you from having to open it under any circumstances.
(obligatory "I am not a lawyer" and "do your own research")
Drive safe and see you there!
Get the Waze app on your smartphone. Everyone that uses that app is sending data about their drive, so Waze determines your best route based on that. Reports sent in by Wazers are logged almost instantly, compared to the slow updates of FM traffic receivers like Garmin or TomTom. I think Waze also uses info from Transtar, but I could be wrong.
Waze will show you the three best routes, along with estimated time each would take at the time you're checking.
Bonus: Waze also reports speed traps, because users can report when they see police working radar.
It's free and it works pretty well. Google bought it, so Google Traffic and Waze are pretty much the same, except you won't see speed trap reports on Google Maps.
Definitely this. Use the navigation feature and it will route around traffic. It also updates on-the-fly, so when faster routes are found, it automatically updates. Use this until you move out of this traffic hell hole. When it comes to Atlanta traffic, the only winning move is not to play.
*Edited to add links:
Waze is nice for avoiding traffic. It also alerts you if there's a roadblock ahead which is convenient.
Eat Sleep Ride has been recommended to me a couple of times, it has a whole bunch of features. Probably more than you'll ever need. It can apparently detect if you've been in an accident but I don't know how accurate it is. Is there someone willing to test it?
Waze was just updated to work with Android Auto and it's been great. Now that I've been using that over Google or my Ford navigation, I can't wait for Android Auto to make its way into the wife's CX-5.
There is the MZD AIO project, but we have the newest Mazda version in the CX-5 that it can't work on.
Raindar looks interesting, I'll give it a try.
Apple Maps for Android sounds sketchy. There is NO official version of Apple Maps for Android, made by Apple.
Just avoid using it. I usually use Google Maps, so, I haven't tried other Maps apps, but you can try Waze as an alternative to Google Maps.
This is my biggest issue with the new location/format and I almost didn't come because of it. We decided as a group that driving back and forth each night was way too risky, so we opted for a hotel in McDonough and we're going to try Ubering back and forth the 10 miles to the AMS. But I'd say if you have to make the drive, have a sober driver and use WAYZ.
But whatever yank, I'll answer your question.
Check out Waze: [link]
honestly just download and use Waze. It'll give you the best up to the minute routes.
Thanks for sharing! The list is really great! To expand the TRAVEL GUIDE paragraph: Waze ([link]) will help to orientate in any unknown city for you.
Ha átmennél rajta hosszában, akkor körirányban mész, tehát lesz rövidebb útvonal.
Ha keresztben át, mint egy folyón, akkor elég gáz kereszteződés lehet...
Have you tried using another navigation app? Like Wayze or even Pokemon Go?
If other apps work, I'd assume it's an app specific issue.
Gps is my go-to for gps troubleshooting:
Tap the compass to show the top bar, then use the menu to the left to reset agps or try their calibration methods.
Do you have any battery saver mods installed? Some rooted ones I've used in the past would disable sensors for conditions like screen off or face down to "save battery".
> I prefer Waze but Google maps...
Can both apps be installed on the phone without one conflicting with the other? I don't mean run them both at the same time but maybe I do. For example if I try one and don't like how it's going and then I fire up the other one isn't one of the apps still running in the background? Is it good form in a case like this with two apps doing the same thing to manually close the app running in the background. new to all this. Just go to apps and manually close one of them.
>This feature is slowly being worked into Google maps since Google owns both apps.
That's interesting. So most likely Google purchased Waze to weed out the competition. And this is the one that you are referring to since I noticed there was another one:
>...if I can trust android permissions. For example, I installed Waze and only enabled Location.
Waze is owned by Google so good luck trying to limit the data it gets from you.
I don't use this app but see Settings > Apps & notifications > Waze > Permissions > 3-dots > All permissions.
Check Waze in Play Store, scroll down to Permissions > View details.
See [link] and search web with: waze privacy.
Try " Editors' Choice
Waze - GPS, Maps, Traffic Alerts & Live Navigation" [[link]]
or try Goole map Go, but there will be no real-time navigation
I actually have it on almost 100% of the time except in short commutes. Two reasons: 1) Accidents/Incidents and 2) Speed Traps/Police.
In a busy city and with a lot of highway driving, a single crash/incident can leave you stuck in a line for a long time. The navigation software will automatically recalculate an alternative. And those sneaky mobile tripods with speed cams are also a nuisance.
Waze has been working great. I use it daily in my home<>work commute and have it set to be quiet unless there's an alert/rerouting. Most of the time I don't even look at the screen, but it has saved my bacon a few instances. The price (free) is great too.

Good read... I personally use Waze (navigation app) to avoid cops when I can. It's a community based platform so the data is only as useful as the people that use it.
If everyone used it, we could find a police officer if needed or avoid them altogether. I use Waze for the latter.
No offense to the good apples out there but in regards to the bad apples spoiling the whole bushel, "I don't want you fucking up my life too."
It sounds like you've given up diagnosing the problem, having lived in Leeds for a number of years now, I've owned a Nexus 4, 5 and 6 with little issue on Google Maps.
To answer your question, an alternative you may want to consider is Waze ([link]).
However, this will not solve your problems if your device is poor at identifying where it is, saving the area offline is a good idea. You could look into apps made by Garmin or uses Open Street Map to help get you around. Else I would suggest looking for a new phone or try changing your Android settings from relying on WiFi (aka High Accuracy Mode) to just GPS, or vice versa.
From my assumption you commute to work by train/bus so Google Maps is the best option. If you ever find yourself needing better car navigation Waze is your go to app.
Tasker will automate your phone and simple commands will really take your experience to the next level in that it'll do things you normally have to do with several taps. Example would be enabling screen rotate for certain apps (It's the easiest to set up but my favorite IMO). It doesn't sound impressive but there's a lot more you can do than that.
Life360 will let you track and share locations with family members if you ever have kids/loved ones.
Sleep as Android is the best alarm clock where it wakes you up in your lightest sleep cycle which will result in a more pleasant rising.
Nova Launcher is probably beating a dead horse but it really does give the options that Samsung surprisingly doesn't.
Gboard adds more functionality to your keyboard unlike the stock keyboard. It has better autocorrect, better swipe to type, and search functionality.
Google Photos to back up your data.
Office Lens and PhotoScan by Google to turn your documents and photos into digital form respectively.
I love your tips, this are apps I use regularly and they are amazing.
I would also suggest that if anyone is sheltering in place, you check flood maps, see your risk. If your risk is low double check on topography maps for elevation. I was able to see the creek that will block out escape as it flooded to 12 feet during Matthew. I have approximately 75 ft elevation with approximately 1 miles distance. I feel comfortable the creek will not affect us in our home. SO and son spent a few minutes checking storm drains nearby, and are prepared to clean them if they start showing debris blockage (when it’s safe. )
And of course, I have fully stocked up on all prep supplies to last 10 days minimum.
Just a few more factors for deciding.
Obviously if you are immediate coastal- get out. You can’t beat the storm surges.

me and my brother went on a 2+ week road trip back in october from Pennsylvania to California, mostly staying up north towards Cleveland, then went down towards kentucky for mammoth caves, back up to Chicago, visit sis in minnesota, sioux falls, badlands, had to check out the Colorado scene, up to yellowstone, bryce canyon, grand canyon, vegas, los angeles, those were the main stops, and mount rushmore, old faithful were somewhere along the way too. also hit up a few other places along the way.
my brother used the roadtrippers app to plan the trip, then we pulled it up every now and then to find some spots in between.
mostly had waze running the whole trip, helps with traffic and cops. also we did camp most of the time except when stopping at my sisters and a friends in chicago and denver and los angeles. we used [link] to find free places to camp, but you might want to have a 2nd option just in case. if we didn't do free camp sites, then it was usually between $10-20 at the other designated camp sites with bathrooms and some with rv hookups for water/electricity for a little more $ i think.
oh yeah, bonus tip, buy the annual pass at the national parks, its $80 bucks i think, but will save you if you plan on visiting 4 or more national parks which were usually around $20ish entrance fee.
get a podcast app (i use pocketcast), or some audio books and music for long drives between stops. the podcast app is good because it can auto download podcasts that you can play when you don't have service going to a lot of these not so populous places and parks and camp sites.
enjoy the scenery and have fun!
I would add that for navigation in a car Waze is a much better Navigation app than google maps (though Waze is also owned by google).

Waze is a social service for drivers to share real-time tips about the route they're travelling. Other people can see them.
I have gotten Tons of tickets in my 15 years driving here... The costs have gone up considerably in the last 5 years, specifically for the 15+ above posted tickets. $180 is par for the course under 15, but $333 is super high in MY experience, but its probably because its 25 over.
IF your wife has a clean driving record, I would recommend fighting it. Not because she'll win, but because if you have 0 points, You can claim ignorance ('My old City people sped all the time, I thought that was normal everywhere, my bad.) - And you don't argue in front of a judge usually, you speak with the prosecutor.
Most cases, the day you go to court to 'fight it' - you just plead 'Not Guilty' and then go home with a new court date. Sometimes that day you get to talk to the prosecutor, and sometimes that talk happens the day of your court date. The Prosecutor has a standard 'schedule' of how much he can knock off in Points and $. If its your 1st Offense, you an OFTEN plead down for a 'Non Moving Violation' which has no points, but will still have the Fine $ they want. (Might be around the same, could be less... not likely more in your case.) The main benefit of this is that you get to maintain a clean driving record, and show 0 points the next time you get pulled over... Having prior points = they are more likely to target you aggressively.
As a new Resident, here are the areas where you absolutely should not speed:
Cleveland Heights, Cleveland proper (especially on Euclid/just outside of downtown), Garfield Heights, Brooklyn. Some parts of Mayfield Heights and Lyndhurst depending on the cop/time of day.
IMO 90 is a safer highway (cop wise) than 480, but the stretch between I-77 and 271 on I-480 is not too bad usually. The 77 Split by Rockside Road (480/77) is often Speed-Trapped.
Also, Cops CAN pull you over for having a slightly tinted window, or no front plates in Ohio.
Get Wayze if you speed a lot, but be safe.
if im not mistaken waze can do that
Sorry this happened. Can you try the waze app or other mobile apps that can show you the speed?
I believe this is the wazes app.
depends on the purpose. i usually use waze for driving (car navigation), komoot for hiking, maps.me (using openstreetmap, as far as i know?) for offline maps. and also citymapper for getting around ("all in one") in foreign (to me) cities.
I find these on the Waze app. I mostly post the hidden in the bushes ones. When you see them share them on Waze. 😎waze

Hey thanks I was about to post about Waze.. Android link | Apple link
From the looks of the votes, most folks in /r/houston don't seem to think a League City traffic incident is very remarkable.
If there were a photo, it would have a slightly better chance, but not a lot better.
When I want to see how the traffic looks, I use the Waze app (if I'm in my car) and Transtar if I'm at a PC.
Try Waze, It has this feature and an option to be left on permanently.
Download Waze. It alerts when you're approaching cops (and accidents, road debris, etc).
No real solution to your maps issue, but my tip would be to use Waze .
For car-related navigation it is superior by far.
