Most of us can't go a day, an hour, or even minutes without our phones, since they carry apps that make our lives a little easier, including driving. For instance, some apps have taken the place of the traditional paper road map and GPS devices. It's pretty nifty! We've found and assembled a list of free apps that every driver should incorporate into their routine.
TOP 4 APPS THAT EVERY DRIVER SHOULD HAVE:
If you haven't heard of Waze, then you must be living under a rock. This app is no ordinary GPS app. Waze offers real-time, user-submitted data that can give you instant information on the conditions of your route. You can be notified by all sorts of potential trouble such as hidden police traps, roadwork, stopped vehicles, and even roadkill. Other app users, known as "Wazers," usually submit these warnings.
We all know fuel is one of the most expensive (yet frequent) expenses for our cars. However, you can depend on Gasbuddy to help you save money. This app shows its users the best and lowest gas prices in their city. Gasbuddy also offers an exclusive pay program to save at least five cents per gallon.
There are navigation apps and gas money-saving apps, but what about parking? The Parkopedia app maps out parking spots and garages and shows you their available rates. It has an enormous database covering over 15,000 cities.
Find My Parked Car
We've all ended up wandering around the parking lot trying to remember where we parked our cars before. The Find My Car App can relieve your stress by using simple GPS location services to save the location of your vehicle. The app has many benefits, including giving you the option to snap a picture of your parking spot, setting a timer for when your ticket runs out, and more!
We assure you that some of these apps will change your whole perspective of the driving experience. If you require any maintenance or repair services, take your car to Complete Car Care Encinitas.
