If you are using Google Maps, I think you should give a try to Waze also. This app can be also considered as alternative/similar app to Google Maps. So try this Waze App.
Intelligent feature of Waze works when you are in crowded city or taking off on road trip. More than Google Maps because Google Maps will only provide you basic navigation while this surprise you. Waze relies on its community of users about traffic jams, speed traps, and closures. So you can find an alternate route before getting stuck on the freeway.
You can download Waze from Google Play Store, CLICK HERE to download.
