    Hello,

    I'm using waze maps on my phone while drive the car, now I want to use it on the bike. Please tell me your experience.

    Unless you are using it for road riding I think Waze is kinda lame. I used once in a while on my bike it when I had my iPhone but since I switched to a Galaxy S3 I stopped using it.

    Here in Chile Waze have very good maps, and the best is traffic and police information.

    I use it when I'm out and about the town. The routing has some issues sometimes, but I love the active reports.

    Now that google has released their map app for IOS, I'd like to see them buy Waze. Google routing + Waze social reporting = win in my book.

    What tablet are you using? What mount? Your tablet is 3G or you use your mobile as a Hot Spot?
