Never get lost. And never get lost without data. Now with U Mobile, you can use Waze ‘for free.’ Through a partnership with Waze, U Mobile is giving free data access to Waze from now till 31 December 2016.
I’m guessing Waze doesn’t need any introduction. Now a Google company, Waze is the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app.
It’s fun to use, and because map and traffic information is crowd-sourced, you also get the most up-to-date data. Waze also has elements of gamification built-in where you can collect nuggets and rewards along your journey.
The awesome thing about Waze is that it isn’t just for wayfinding. You’ll also get heads up on traffic jams, accidents, roadworks and even police roadblocks and speed traps.
Waze is also highly social. You can ‘meet’ people on the road, beep and send messages to them from within the app too. Waze makes it easy to share your journey with friends and loved ones.
In Kuala Lumpur itself, Waze has more than 2 million monthly active users, who drive nearly 263 kilometers with the app every month.
U Mobile’s partnership with Waze is a great move for the benefit of its customers, adding even more value to its portfolio of best-in-industry postpaid and prepaid plans. Its HERO Postpaid P70 plan is highly regarded thanks to its affordable monthly fee and generous 15GB of data. Its POWER Prepaid is also a compelling package for consumers.
So time to drive smarter with Waze. And now free with U Mobile.
