ROMULUS (WWJ) — Wayne County’s departments of public service and technology Monday rolled out Compass, a smartphone and web app designed to make driving smarter and safer.

The original version of Compass offered the current location of Wayne County plow trucks. The new version of Compass offers the following functionalities:
* Pinpointing your location with GPS
* Showing the nearest police station, towing service, gas station, auto repair business, and hospital, with addresses and phone numbers from your location
* A popup window and phone link to report road hazards like potholes and fallen trees
* Up-to-the-minute information on road construction and accidents so drivers can avoid delays
* Storm tracking and weather radar.
Earlier this year, the first version of Wayne County Compass earned an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties.
