One sure-fire way to put a damper on any RV trip is being slowed down – or stopped altogether – by a traffic jam that could have been avoided.
In my “PC Mike” NBC-TV report this week, I showed three great apps that can help you stay abreast of current traffic conditions and avoid being stuck in traffic.
I think RVers can find them useful, too.
Try the always-improving traffic app Waze, which takes traffic navigation apps to a whole new level by adding a social feature that allows drivers to input data. Waze has been around for a long time but just keeps getting better and better. Drivers can report road closures, for example, and warn others about inactive roads. It even includes data on speed traps and will help users find the cheapest gas prices. Don’t worry about inaccurate info, either, as the app is programmed to “trust” sources of info based on good information previously provided by users. It recently added a feature to estimate driving times. Free for iOS, Android, and Windows.
