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.
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.

On the subject of making a waze-only device, I have another idea.

I think it's time for someone to make a camera-only device.

They recently make one, I think it's called a camera.

K-waze is TAG Recommended !

We use a galaxy s7 that runs on android 8.0 !

You will need to purchase a data plan from Red pocket ... We recommend the 500mb of data a month plan foot $5 a month/this is the direct link to the plan  https://www.ebay.com/itm/133058476404

Shipped with USPS Priority Mail.

you dont need service get a device that has GPS, download offline maps, however you wont have traffic, but you'll get directions where you need to go, if you have Wifi at your starting point its even better
offline maps expire after 30 days I think.

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.

Can I have Waze AND Google Maps?

update over wifi every 30 days... Not such a good idea.

There are other apps with map download option. but didn't work well, for me at least.

12 times a year you have to update the maps that's very hard!

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.)
