Title: Waze or GPS only device
Post by: Kosher_Cellutions on July 29, 2020, 11:24:20 AM
There are not a lot of inexpensive options for a Kosher Waze or GPS device. I have seen some people resell these devices for more then $300+

For this reason today I am releasing my Kosher Waze or GPS service. It's only $49.99 1 time cost. You bring the Samsung device and I will turn it into a Waze only or GPS only device. You can buy a nice Samsung tracfone for about $100 from Target, Walmart, or Bestbuy and I can turn your device remotely for you.

How much would service cost monthly?

That's the killer as once you're paying for service you might as well use it for text and talk.

 And I would assume you have to find your own service provider.

Cops and cameras are part of it, I've had my life saved more than once by being alerted to objects on the road (no lights on the highway, once was an aluminum ladder, the other time an unidentified LARGE object), animals nearby warning is also very helpful.

But beyond that, the accurate traffic patterns and re-routing is unbeatable, and to be honest, the maps themselves and directions are just a whole lot better than Garmin. To the point where I can't use my old garmin anymore, even as I try to get another Waze device, because I just get annoyed at it. It's like a "you had one job" meme.

100% agreed in reference to a Garmin, but I wouldn't say unbeatable, Google maps is more often then not better at routing traffic and giving more accurate ETAs, not to mention way more accurate directions and nicer UI.
(By accurate I mean it tells you which lane to be in and very timely instructions)

100% agree that google maps is better in terms of UI, Lane guidance.
Google maps tends to take you the most direct way while waze will (sometimes) take you off the interstate, through a bunch of city streets and back on the highway 3 exits later, ahead of the traffic.

They are both Google products, I wish they would add all the features to both apps.

True, yet since Waze I find is less accurate on timing, the rerouting can more often then not make it take longer rather shorter, it also probably depends on the area.

When i dowloaded maps it expired after 30 days. It was a while ago but i believe that if you dont connect to data, and manually sat time/date it will not expire. (i think the same is true for spotify downloads.)

It would seem to me that the simplest option would be to buy an old refurbished unlocked iPhone, put it on a cheap data plan, download the few apps you need and have someone else (that you would feel uncomfortable asking to unlock unless it was really important) put on the parental controls for you.

Dont, its just not worth it. Most parental control apps are not sufficient in blocking all content, they do not come to the level of really being filtered, there are loopholes etc.
And another point that im sure not all will agree with, but, at the end of the day its still a smartphone. The idea to get a kosher phone with only the apps needed is that its not a smartphone, as opposed to a smartphone with a filter.

All these flip phones with any app you want are also smartphones that happen to flip.
I have an Orbic basic flip phone. It has it's annoying issues but I can deal with it.

Back to my original point, for someone who wants a waze or waze+google maps phone, from what I've been told, iPhone allows you to block everything with their parental controls. So, you can't get any more apps or get on the internet itself just use the apps that are there already.

I may be wrong. I don't know. I have never owned a smartphone. This is all heresay.

Its true with some of them the OS can support apps, but to call them smartphones is simply not true from two angles.
First the technical aspect - they do not have the capability to run apps like a smartphone. (there are two 'dangers' of technology 1: doing the wrong thing 2: doing the right thing. there are many people who dont have smartphones purely because (the gedolim say so, and) because of the distraction and all the rest of it. A flip phone can never reach that level of distraction/dependency etc. it simply isnt able.)
 Second - the hashkafa aspect. Its hard to put in words for those who dont live in the flip-phone circles, but there is a very real difference between having a smartphone with a filter and having a flip phone with a filter
[Im sure you understand]

I dont know about iphones, but i have seen it done on androids and the level of kashrus was.... lacking. And yes it was done smartly with all of the aspects thought to be taken care of, but there are always loopholes.

I think you're very right.
As of right now I have a smartphone with a filter so it's not the filth I'm trying to get rid of.
I'm trying to get off of smartphones altogether. I feel like I don't need it and my life will be so much richer without it. On the other hand I still do need for my car basics like a proper gps music and a few other apps.
So I was thinking of using my old galaxy as this phone and leaving it in my car (while praying it doesn't get stolen) and have the Alcatel go flip 3 as my main phone. It still technically has a browser WhatsApp youtube Gmail... It's just not very convenient to use them.

I take it you're using T-Mobile that you went with the flip 3?

 Very impressive. Big move.
 I know the title is waze or GPS, but which ever you're using is definitely taking you in the right direction..  ;)

 And at work if you need you use a computer. Vs carrying a smartphone all day in your pocket.

So I was thinking of using my old galaxy as this phone and leaving it in my car (while praying it doesn't get stolen) and have the Alcatel go flip 3 as my main phone. It still technically has a browser WhatsApp youtube Gmail... It's just not very convenient to use them.
I know someone who did the car idea that you mentioned earlier, it eventually made its way into the house, albeit not as a personal cell phone, but it only had waze and email. It is a good idea in theory

Not sure what you mean when you say it still has browser etc. just not convenient, the flip phone or the smartphone?

So my plan is the "car phone" will have maps, some sort of music app, calling/text and two other  apps I would need in my car.

The "dumb phone" will have WhatsApp, gmail, a browser and YouTube. But it doesn't have a full keyboard nor does it have touchscreen and it's a small screen so will be very annoying to use and hopefully won't be used for much except a quick search etc.

I have no problem with it coming in the house. There isn't really much for me to do on it - I don't need waze to get to the kitchen:)

Why will you want to call or text from the phone  that is only in the car? What happens when someone returns your call or text? I don't even know the phone number of my smartphone.

Probably he thinks that he will have it as part of the plan. I have heard of being able to split the data from the call/text on a single plan. Not easy to convince a rep to do, but possible.

Edit: could be that wouldnt work anymore if you want to have lte service for talk and text

I need the calling for Hatzolah. I need to be able to (through their app) be in touch with patients and other members. Otherwise I would just use my dumb phone for all calls.

He can use DIGITS since he has Tmobile
