Just discovered this app, going to try it out for a bit and see if I think it might be useful on Rally New England. It's free and works on both Android and iPhones, below is a description of their app from the Google Play Store.

Waze - Description

Use it all the time, soooooo good, I've tested a lot of navigation apps at my job and this is the best so far.

I'm still trying to figure it out, but it seems like it has a lot of functionality that could prove useful on the rally especially if other folks are using it.
