Best Driving Apps for Trips, Traffic, and More

Whether you’re planning on taking a long road trip soon or just looking for apps to make your daily commute in Greer, SC easier, we’ve compiled some of the best driving apps for smartphones that tell you about traffic, the best stops to make on road trips, and more.

Waze is a great app to use if you’re in the middle of a traffic jam. It’s not perfect for longer-term driving because it tends to drain your battery, but it’s great when you’re in heavy traffic because it can suggest an alternate route to take that will get you to your destination faster.

For road trips, there’s no better app than Roadtrippers, which suggests places to eat, cool sights to see, the best hotels in the area, and even campgrounds. Plus, if you put your route into the app, it can estimate how much gas you’re going to buy.

RepairPal is great to have if you find yourself with car trouble while away from home or if you just don’t have a trusted mechanic in town. It gives you average prices charged by local mechanics and keeps you from overspending.

Electric car drivers have to get PlugShare, the app that lets you quickly find charging locations in the area, with more than 40,000 stations registered in the app across the US. With the still limited ranges of most electric cars on the market, PlugShare is a life saver.

 

These are just a few great apps that make driving more fun and stress-free. Find more here!
