Artur and his wife spent most of 2017 testing the top three navigation apps to answer three questions:
- Which navigation app estimates the shortest travel time?
- How does each app over/underestimate travel times?
- Which navigation app actually gets you to your destination most quickly?
After 120 trips that required the two leaving the same origin to get to the same destination, his numbers came to the final conclusion:
If you want to get to your destination most quickly, use Google Maps.
If you want an accurate prediction from your navigation app to help you arrive at your destination on time, use Apple Maps.
If thinking you’ll get to your destination quickly helps to ease your commuter anxiety, use Waze.
