TRACK YOUR (AND OTHERS') WAY TO BRC
Waze has set up a special driving group for Burning Man and everyone headed to Black Rock City! With this free application, anyone with a smartphone can watch people around the country converge on Black Rock City, see who else is going and ping them on the way for car pooling, planning stops, sharing information (like speed traps, for instance), or just chatting (passengers only please!).
This is a pretty cool way for everybody to connect with each other on their way to Burning Man! Here's how to get going:
- Download Waze (on your phone, visit http://m.waze.com, or search for 'waze' in the Appstores - all smartphones)
- Once you've registered, join the BRC group (from iPhone and iPad). To do this, click on 'groups' in the main menu, click on the magnifying glass icon and search for BRC, and join us!
- You'll be able to track other group members with the BRC logo next to their avatar, all across the country, as we advance towards the playa. Along the way you'll be able to send chit chats and road reports to other BRC driving group members and organize stops along the way.
