Re: Waze is the answer

No. Waze is not the answer. Nor is any other non-google mapping app if you want to use things like Android Auto, or associated Auto apps. They *all* link to Google Maps.

Sure, you can install and use Waze standalone (and if that's the choice, I'd have HERE, since it has a proper useful driving-mode, unlike the POS google Maps "driving mode" which seems elusive on all versions of Android I've ended up with). But then you've broken the google grip on your device, and things using maps don't/can't integrate.

But, in a move to piss off google - and handset manufacturers general - I've discovered that devoting an old MOTOG as my sat nav solution works perfectly. So my phone stays in my pocket ...
