5 Apps for On-the-Go Driving Directions
For: Apple iOS and Android devices.
Best for: The no-nonsense driver.
The gist: Just like regular Google Maps (think: easy-to-read routes and live, color-coded traffic conditions), except now it talks. And it does so in the most pleasant, crystal-clear voice of all the apps tested.
Nice surprise: Want to stop for lunch? Check Zagat restaurant reviews right on the app.
Biggest minus: It’s bare-bones basic; other apps on the market offer more exciting features, like clever accents and tips on speed traps.
