Is the Waze app completely free?

Which is better Google Maps or Waze?

Both apps are Google-owned global mapping apps that are built for iPhones and Androids and, while they compliment each other in many ways, there are exciting differences that set them apart.
One of the stand-out differences is that Waze is a community-based app that is solely driver-focused, whereas Google Maps is more data-based. Waze offers a high level of customisation which drivers may prefer to the more basic features within Google Maps.
