Waze is good when you know where you want to go and it is a long drive and re-routing assistance is handy for traffic issues. But if you want to go somewhere and now sure what or where them Maps is your friend. You can search on topic, name, restaurants, gas stations, etc… choose your destination and go. With Android Auto, you can have the Navigation take up most the screen, or go to the Home screen and have it report how far till the next turn and your arrival time.
The phone screen by default shows tiles for recent phone calls and conversations. Easy to tap with a finger. There is a button to get a phone dial pad with big numbers that are easy to tap. Of course, there are always voice commands to use… “Call Joe Smith on Cell” and you don’t have to look at or touch the screen. TXT messaging can work the same, “Send message to Joe Smith, I’m running late, be there soon”.
