Use Waze to Find Your Best Hospital Route

By November 25, 2012

Waze Social Media GPA App

I've talked about finding your way to the hospital before when you're in labor. It usually involves finding the fastest route, or at least the usually fastest route. But now there is a social media GPS app called Waze that might be of assistance when it comes time for that potentially tricky drive.

Personally, where I live, there are a couple of hospitals that have periods of time during the week or even seasonally, that make them more difficult to get to than others. Waze uses normal GPA functions to select routes but also tells you what's up along each route because of user input, other Waze users. So rather than risk that mad dash to to the hospital and pick the shortest drive with the longest wait, you can now have the foresight to know which route really is the fastest.

The above images are two various screen shots, one showing you different routes (right) available, and one asking you if you're ready to go after pre-selecting the shortest route.

Have you tried it yet? What other apps and tricks are you using?
