    What are your favorite smartphone apps when you are driving?

    As the title states, what are your favorite smartphone apps when you are driving? GPS and map apps like Google Maps, Apple Maps, and so on are fairly expected, but what others do you use?

    Google Maps hands down. Sadly sideloaded onto my Z30, as there is no native version yet.

    Google maps... No contest.

    I've also taken to listening to podcasts or audio books thru Doggcatcher or audible while driving. Helps pass the commute time .

    I like "play music" through my sync with Bluetooth. I'm able to listen to what I like during long drives other than listening to XM.

    I probably should've mentioned this in my initial thread, but the apps I use while driving include Google Maps, Waze (sometimes), Ulysse Speedometer, Shazam, DI Radio (Digitally Imported)

    I mainly use Apple Maps for GPS directions, Apple Podcasts and Music. I wish I could use streaming music services, but cellular data is unfortunately not as cheap as I wished

    Not maps or even an app really, but I find Siri extremely helpful while driving. Especially the new hey Siri feature in iOS 8. Allows me to be hands-free but still connected.

    I love using Spyglass nav app, it supports different maps, depending on my current needs: google maps, apple maps, open street map and open cycle map. It's also very important that the app can read pre-downloaded maps when offline. It shows your bearing, speed, distance to the target and estimated time of arrival. pretty cool
