Waze Fixes GPS Dead Zones In NYC Tunnels

The navigation app Waze has provided drivers with directions thanks to GPS, but driving through a tunnel can throw it off due to the presence of GPS ‘dead zones’ in those tunnels.

The company has worked with the MTA and Port Authority to install Bluetooth beacons that address the dead zones in NYC tunnels.

The beacons utilize microcontrollers and Google Eddystone technology to provide alternative location services.

The beacons are installed in the Holland Tunnel, Lincoln Tunnel, Hugh L. Carey Tunnel, and the Queens-Midtown Tunnel.
