    Waze is good as it is user friendly and anyone can add traffic delays, wrecks etc and you can verify them.

    Apple maps is good and a little more accurate.

    Havent used google maps

    Waze is the best. Live updates, users flag police, accidents, potholes, congestion.

    Apple has horrible ETA in traffic. I used apple maps from west hollywood going to LAX. estimate was 30 min. Actual time was 1 hour.

    Google actually bought waze in 2013. Originally an Israeli company.

    Well to be fair apple doesn't know that if you get even remotely close to the 405 it fucks everything up

    It's nothing like Google maps. Visually I liked Google maps but the routes are inferior when you are using it in cities with high traffic. Waze uses user input more effectively than Google does and the routes are what locals take. I was at the rams game last week and they close roads around DTLA. road closures were not marked on Google maps but were on waze.

    It was a firetruck on the road blocking westbound traffic. Just one of the reasons why waze is king imo. I probably would've gotten that update and went another route than Washington to la cienega.

    I've relocated cities a few times and tried different maps and apps to get around and I've found that Waze is the best.
