Waze Reports Now Available in “Drive Oklahoma” for Better Navigation

Waze is one of the most accurate apps in terms of traffic information simply because it relies on community power to get data on traffic jams, speed traps, and other hazards on the road.

Starting this week, Waze data is also available in the Drive Oklahoma app, a tool that authorities in the state have launched specifically to find information about the route to a specific destination and ways to reach it safely and faster.

Therefore, the most recent version of the app for both Android and iPhone comes with significant improvements, including the integration of Waze data, so starting with build 2.7.5, you should see some reports powered by the Google-owned app right in Drive Oklahoma.

At the same time, the new version, which promises a completely redesigned app experience, offers live streams from cameras across the state, as well as weather radar to help you anticipate changes to the weather conditions when planning a trip.

Last but not least, version 2.7.5 introduces EV stations, making it easier for owners of zero-emissions vehicles to quickly find a place to recharge their cars.

While the Drive Oklahoma app is a valuable resource for drivers who want to find a specific destination faster, nearly all its capabilities are already available in other navigation apps, especially as more are being updated with EV data and new features specifically supposed to make driving a zero-emission vehicle a more convenient experience.

In the meantime, Waze is also preparing to witness the debut of a new rival, as Apple has recently started the work on incident reporting in Apple Maps.

Projected to be part of the next Apple Maps update due to go live later this month as part of iOS 14.5, the new incident reporting option allows users to mark the location of accidents, speed cameras, and other hazards on the map with the press of a button or to use voice commands both on the iPhone and on CarPlay.
