Waze Travel App Allows for Smarter, Easier Travel

Traveling this weekend like me?  This week is one of the biggest travel weeks of the year with many schools on spring break, plus the Easter holiday.  Last trip, my family was traveling north on I-95 on Saturday from Georgia to South Carolina in route to Hilton Head Island and came to a complete stop.

At any rate, Clint was not sure if his compass was right, so they set the phones side by side. That is when the hilarity ensued… The compasses began to change around. If we moved one phone to the other side, the numbers would change. One would say 183 degrees and the other would say 318 (for example). If we moved one iPhone around another, we could cause it to show the interference. Didn’t know that digital compasses could have magnetic polarity issues. What was the easiest trick was to take one iPhone and hover over the other one. You can see the craziness ensue. However, we also noticed that Clint’s iPhone was a little off balance when he switched over to Maps. It would point him...
