The Best Driving Apps to Boost Efficiency and Cut Down on Boredom

Whether you drive for work or just drive to work, the time we spend behind the wheel quickly adds up. Because we spend so much time in our cars, it’s important to use this time as efficiently as possible. Luckily, there are plenty of apps to help with just that. If you’re not sure where to start, be sure to check out our favorite driving apps that are sure to save you time and money while keeping you entertained.

 

Waze

There are several great navigation apps out there, but Waze is different in that it is updated in real time with information from other drivers, so you know right away about any unusual traffic due to things like accidents and unexpected road closures. If you like to find the quickest route possible, this one is definitely for you.

 

MileIQ

Especially if you drive as part of your job, keeping track of your mileage accurately can be a pain. MileIQ solves this problem by automatically tracking your total mileage and also keeping tabs on the number of drives and start/stop times.

 

Castbox

While not strictly speaking a driving app, podcast app Castbox makes our list because it easily turns even the most boring drive into some much-needed relaxation time. No matter what you’re into, you’re sure to find a podcast on Castbox that you’ll love somewhere amongst the more than 50 million episodes available.

 

Of course, messing with your phone while driving is bad, but modern vehicles like the ones here at BMW of Fort Wayne offer connective services to allow you to use your car’s infotainment system or driving apps with your phone, often hands-free or using steering wheel controls.
