Always freezing, not the same as before 1/5
Waze was better in the beginning but after all the updates they have made the app is less efficient. The app ALWAYS freezes and says it cannot connect to the server. It happens during every trip not some. I like being able to view and select the route I want to take unless other apps that only show you one route but the freezing has caused me to get lost at times. The app isn’t in real time, or maybe it simply cannot keep up with my speed... I also have noticed the routes WAZE offers aren’t always the fastest routes.
It’s changed drastically 3/5
By EMT10000 LU
It’s not finding the gps as fast as it used to and it will sit there and say no gps despite being outside and on the road. It’s gone from being worth it’s weight in gold to a bronze app. It’s frustrating since it used to be so good!!! I am hoping that the developers will look and see what’s going on.
Waze Is the best 5/5
I love using Waze this is the best driving app
No GPS 1/5
I’ve been using waze for years and last two weeks always says no GPS. I’ve checked all settings. Deleted app. Restarted. Got app back. Hard restart. Still no GPS. Can’t figure it out.
I like this application very much 5/5
I like this application very much. Lately i got a new car with multimedia i use CarPlay but cannot see Waze on the screen i need to use Apple maps but this application is not as good as Waze. Can you add your application to the apple CarPlay same as you do on Android Auto ?
A must have app if you drive a little or a lot 5/5
If you're in a large metro area, or the country, this app is a necessity. You'll know traffic issues right away, or you can report them and help others. No other app does what this one can. This app has saved me countless hours. And it's a daily useful help to the trials of driving in a thick population density. It’s the app I count on the most daily!
Always uses location in background 2/5
I have the location setting set to “While In App” yet the application continually uses my location when in the background. The big blue bar stays on for minutes after closing the app and didn’t go away until I force killed the app. I expected it to stop using my location once done navigating, but once arriving, it’s still on. Very confusing
Great App 5/5
Just moved to a new city and rely heavily on Waze to get around. Very accurate time estimate and real time traffic updates. Also like the way Waze reroutes around heavy traffic and accidents. Don’t know what I’d do without it.
Where is the quick GPS? 3/5
After the update, it now takes about 10 minutes to find the gps. So I’m driving with approximate information. I have made sure everything is on as directed by WAZE, that they suggest if having connection issues, to no avail. I have not changed phones, carriers or plans. It was the update. Surprised I’m not seeing more complaints on that.
I love this App 5/5
By Lucky Devil 13
I do a lot of driving. I just downloaded this app two months ago and now I use it every time I get in the car. I loved the celebrity voice of Liam Neeson and was disappointed when it ended. I would be willing to pay extra for my choice of celebrity voices. Novelty voices like Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force would be a blast.
Saves you Money💰💰 5/5
This app has saved me so much money. How? From getting speeding tickets. Because when you know someone is ahead of you and reporting what’s going on then you can feel pretty confident that you’ll be alerted if the cops are ahead of you. And you don’t even have to have the app on your screen, meaning you just have to open it and then if you want to do something else on your phone like send a text, as long as the app is open and running it will alert you over your speakers if there’s a police, hazard or traffic jam in front you. It’s a great app. Also you can see how long it’s been since whatever event is in front of you by clicking on the icon. It tells how long ago the report was made. Once you get the hang of it you’ll know what I’m talking about. Great F**king App!!!
Useful but NOT safe 3/5
I like Waze for navigation; it has some good aspects over other map apps-I like that based on the day and time that I open the app it predicts where I might be going, I like that it chooses the shortest route and is always right regarding my ETA, I like that I can send my ETA to any of my contacts so they know when to expect me, and I like that if I try to access the search function while in motion it says this is unsafe and asks if I am the passenger. I DON’T like that all other uses of the app while in motion are extremely unsafe. To document police, accident, stalled car, road closure, etc I have to take my eyes off the road to navigate through all the prompts which is exactly like texting and driving, I DON’T like that there are ads that pop up anytime I am going less than 5mph-my husband has them pop at highway speeds! We need a paid version of the app!! Also, the see other people on the road function does not work well. There are many times I see other icons when there isn’t even another car around or my husband is using the app in his car ahead of me but I don’t see his icon. Also, beeps are not useful. Not only is it unsafe to get in and access the beep function, it serves no purpose. Once you accept them there is no history and no way to tell who beeped you.
Like I said, I like the app for overall navigation and real-time ETA, but otherwise it needs some serious updates.
Why does my husbands app have the gas feature but mine doesn’t? Help!!!
Usage of Waze 5/5
I used to use Waze daily in my travels and had to stop until it started having errors. Every time I would open the app for usage it would give me an error message saying connecting to network and never would connect. I got tried of the system not being found and removed it off my phone. When it did work Waze was the only travel app I used because of it’s features. PLEASE FIX IT SO I CAN START BACK TO USING THE APP!!!
Favorites Aren’t searchable 2/5
Other than that I love this app but need to find another. If I need a favorited address, I cannot scroll through a ton and they’re not in alphabetical order. This is really awful at this point.
By Súper ángel
I already updated Waze app , but It doesn’t talk . Is hard to be driving and checking the cellphone .
Under 1000 miles? 2/5
Im pretty co fused how a navigation app only goes up to 1000 miles away. Guess ill be using apple maps
Awesome navigation app! 5/5
Never disappoints 5/5
By Mz Piggy24
I’ve been using it for years now I’ll never use another gps. I always recommend anything it’s brought up
Almost Perfect 4/5
This is the go to app to get to work and almost every where else. I use it when I travel internationally and works great as well. I only wish it would update quicker when making turns and remember my frequent routes better. It usually wants to take me down roads with more traffic lights which takes longer to get through then what the app calculates. Also don’t make me change my frequent route to save only 1 minute. Other then that I love the app.
Great WAZE 5/5
By Grandma Vel
Love this app and never leave home without it!
The Best App Ever 5/5
By Older Generation
I just love this app.
Apple Watch app NEEDED 4/5
I am so in love with this app. The only fallback is that I wish that it would connect with my Apple Watch so that I can see future turns and directions right from my watch and have it vibrate when my turn is arriving!
Don’t count on it 3/5
The feature to tell you when you leave doesn’t work at all.
It’s also very unintuitive. It bases your drive time based on the average time it should take to get there. You have to be pretty much right in the traffic before it will redirect you.
So if you have a 1 hr drive, and somewhere on route there is a major accident, Waze will not warn you.
You won’t know t until you’re in it and suddenly waze adds 15 min to your arrival time.
Amazing App with a few bugs 5/5
So I have had this app for at least 2 years and I love using it. It’s extremely helpful. However, over the last few weeks it’s been very buggy. It says “searching for GPS signal” and “try again outside” even with my location services all set to the correct settings and being outside. I would just like that fix! Other than that, super creative, easy to use app!
Great app 5/5
Takes you down rounds you wouldn’t think of sometimes but always works out great
Re-routing Issue 1/5
every single time i go a different route and the app reroutes its on the loading screen forever!!! and eventually never gets back to normal so it glitches and I have to waste time CLOSING IT AND REOPENING IT A TOTAL DRAGG I KEEP WAITING FOR THIS APP TO GET BETTER AND IT JUST GETS WORSE. GREAT CONCEPT HORRIBLE EXECUTION. GOOGLE MAPS IS 10x FASTER
En mi caso es bastante lenta la interacción entre lo que está pasando en la calle y las rutas, se tarda en actualizar cuando hay un cambio y también falta que diga los nombres de las calles, se necesita prestar mucha atención al móvil mientras manejas, otra cosa es que no te anticipa el cambio de carril para cuando tienes que salir cuando vas en autopistas
Battery hog. No preferred lane announcements 2/5
Pretty nice app overall. It is a battery killer, though (iPhone 7 Plus). Also needs preferred lane announcements to help us get around in unfamiliar areas.
Crashes and freezes constantly. Used to work great. Now it’s junk. DELETED!!!

Waze is activity using your location is on all the time even on address and even not on address
By Janice Alex
I love the short cuts and the voices make it more enjoyable.
Days with WAZE 5/5
I’m really enjoying Waze. It has helped me get where I’m going with knowledge that many are helping me with my trip.
Better than apple 4/5
But seems to drain my battery, otherwise it’s great
By was lost/ now found
Great app! 5/5
Love being able to choose alternate routes. Also really like receiving reports on road conditions.
Waze to Work 5/5
By Citi Steve
This app is great for the early morning commute and the late night return home.
Waze to drive you crazy while en-route to your destination 4/5
I love most things about it but the friends button keeps being too easily bumped. It should be moved to the top left corner.
Waze helps you see were traffic is and it’s not like the GPS. Waze helps you avoid the traffic
Waze is the best.
Long time wazer! 4/5
By Reading Addicted
I have been using Waze for years and love it! There has only been one problem... when I go to make long trips (1000+ miles) it has a problem connecting to a server. So then I have to break the trip up into smaller destinations to get the Waze help (avoiding known traffic and closed roads) which can be inconvenient. It’s not too terrible for me since I make the same long trip over and over, but it could make things difficult if it was going somewhere new.
Bad directions driving in circles 3/5
Ever since google bought waze they have $&@“ up the efficacy of the directions
Waze went from the best to the worst 1/5
I have been a power Waze user for over 7 years and I've recommended it to many. However, I don’t know what has happened to waze but within the past month or so it has started sending me to incorrect addresses. In addition, it has me literally driving in circles. I used to love it but now I've been forced to switch to Maps. Something is very wrong with this program right now.
Central America 5/5
By Fidel machete
It works great in Guatemala and El Salvador
Great app! 5/5
Very helpful and useful. Like that you can give/receive real time reports. Like that you can be an map editor - that’s my next step. Would like to see slick/slippery added to road conditions - especially when it’s foggy or light rain when the oils on the road has been brought to the surface. Also would like to see ponding added to road conditions as ponding is very different from flooding.
Extreme lag. 3/5
Extremely laggy. Doesn’t update quick enough In real time.
Some alerts come a little late. There should be a way to see checkpoints and pedestrian alerts
Glorified radar detector alternative. 1/5
What I thought this app did: avoid traffic jams. What it actually does: make music skip, force me to claim I’m a passenger to control it, give me popups about restaurants, and shows me other users on the map or people I know on the road so I can beep at them remotely.
Ford Sync update ??? 5/5
Anyone know when the update that will allow it to work on Ford’s Sync via system (via iPhone ) is due out?
