Can I use Waze in the USA?

Following your previous advice, I use the Waze app on my iPhone for navigation. It's excellent. I'm going to do a Florida road trip in April and wondered if Waze would be suitable in the US? I'm concerned that I will have to leave mobile data switched on with the resultant high charges.

Waze works in the US. The biggest issue will, as you say, be the high roaming charges. You can pre-load routes when you're connected to wifi to save some data, but then you won't get the real-time traffic updates obviously. I'd advise sorting out a data plan before you leave, either with your UK mobile provider or by using a US sim card when you're in Florida. Whatever you do, don't just leave your data on because it might run up a massive bill.
