“With the release of the iPhone 5 dri­vers will have an excel­lent selec­tion of use­ful and fun dri­ving aids,” said Karl Brauer, Edi­tor in Chief of Total Car Score. “Beyond the new iPhone 5’s larg­er dis­play screen and excel­lent native apps, these are our favorite dri­ving-relat­ed apps from the App Store. All of the apps in the list, with the excep­tion of MotionX® GPS, are free in the App Store.”

  1. Navigation/Traffic:
    MotionX GPS is able to pull des­ti­na­tion points from your con­tact list or the Inter­net and pro­vides live traf­fic, turn-by-turn nav­i­ga­tion, up-to-date maps and search, Face­book places and Wikipedia inte­gra­tion. It is opti­mized for por­trait and land­scape view­ing to accom­mo­date var­i­ous dock­ing sys­tems
  2. Safe Dri­ving:
    With more and more dri­vers hav­ing access to smart phones, safe­ty while dri­ving has become a grow­ing con­cern. The DriveSafe.ly™ app is the top pick for help­ing dri­vers be safer behind the wheel. The app reads text mes­sages and emails out loud in real time. It also works hands free, so there’s no need to touch the phone while dri­ving.
  3. Music:
    Music is an absolute must when dri­ving, and Pan­do­ra, Slack­er Radio and now Spo­ti­fy are Total Car Score’s favorites, depend­ing on which Total Car Score staffer you ask. All three of these music ser­vice providers have cre­at­ed effec­tive music apps, and they always opti­mize their soft­ware inter­face and fea­tures for a new Apple prod­uct short­ly after Apple launch­es it.
  4. Loca­tion Search­es:
    Yelp
    has been a favorite app for loca­tion-based search­es and, as men­tioned above, the Total Car Score team antic­i­pates it will offer even bet­ter inte­gra­tion with the iPhone 5’s native Maps app. Siri, Apple’s built-in per­son­al assis­tant, also helps find near­by restau­rants, gas sta­tions, pub­lic bath­rooms and even movie the­aters, all via voice com­mands that let dri­vers stay focused on the road.
  5. Gas Prices:
    Gas Bud­dy
    is often tout­ed as being the best app in this cat­e­go­ry, and the Total Car Score team agrees. No oth­er gas-sav­ing app has sur­passed it. The app finds the low­est priced gas sta­tions in the near­by area, sav­ing a few dol­lars on gas each fill up.
