This week on Monday Productivity Pointers, I’ll introduce you to a crowdsourced GPS app called Waze.
Crowdsourced GPS means this: The more people who actively use it, the more information you can get from it. With a quick tap, you can actively alert nearby drivers using Waze of traffic, accidents, detours, and other hazards.
Likewise, you benefit from other drivers warning you of the same issues. You can even relay local gas prices and open a web browser from your desktop computer to see a live map of your area as flagged by Waze drivers.
Waze is available for Android, iOS, and Windows phones. Watch my free video and learn how easy it is to use Waze, the social GPS!
Then come back next week for more Monday Productivity Pointers.
Begin learning software, business, and creative skills—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
