Algorithms The predictions are good

If you spend a lot of time driving to certain places, you may not use your mapping app to tell you how to get there. You can use it to identify traffic and road closures or to find a better route.

Traffic is not just frustrating; This is also bad for the energy economy. Each time you hit the brakes, you use more force to move the car again. These burn fuel and reduce your miles per gallon. Driving in traffic means more idle time and more wear on your brakes and engine parts.

It’s very easy to open your navigation app and see the current traffic, but what if you want to see the expected traffic conditions tomorrow or next week?

Whether you use Apple Maps or Google Maps, you can get a very accurate traffic forecast for the future date based on the general conditions of the day and times. Then you can fine tune your departure time to find the ideal time to get on the road.
