I am a big fan of Apple Maps now that they have gotten better and don’t send me on wild goose chases. With that said, I often find myself using the Waze app when going on longer trips or when I may be driving a bit faster than the speed limit. For those of you not familiar with the Waze app, it uses crowd sourced data to update you of a where the cops are hiding (and other things as well). Pretty cool app.
The Escort Max 360C ($700) might just be the next purchase as it not only uses crowd data for spotting police but also has 360-degree radar and laser detection. The crowd sourced data comes from the Escort Live service and uses your phone or cars wifi for updates. Another cool feature is the live speed limit info and GPS intelligence for rejecting false alerts.
