Kills your battery 1/5
My iPhone 7 Plus's battery loses a little more than 1% per minute when running this app. That means that in my 30 minute drive to work, I'm already down more than a 1/3 of my battery. Also, so it now requires location services to be enabled all of the time, it continues to kill your battery even when you're not using this app.
Also, the ETA doesn't seem to account for traffic like Google Maps does. No matter when I check, it estimates my drive to work at 16 minutes. I live in the Seattle area so the time can vary greatly, but it never does in this app. If I leave at 5 am, I can be at work in 14 minutes. At 8:30 it takes closer to 45 minutes usually. Even Google doesn't get the time right since it usually shows 14 and 28 rather than 16 and 45, but it's still much better than Waze.
Also, it keeps directing me to routes that have tolls that are not faster than nontoll routes. They really need to improve their toll avoidance.
Finally, nearly every day it tries to route me to HOV lanes. If I followed the app to the lanes, exits and entrances it recommended, I'd get a ticket!
Love this.... 5/5
Love this app. It's useful because of the feedback and continuous information Inputted by the users. And the designer takes the updates and uses them too !!!!
Uses location 4/5
After last update it uses location gps even when app is closed. Have to manually deactivate it.
Best GPS out there. Don't rely on traffic services. Rely on other drivers! 5/5
Best driving app out there

Needs works 1/5
By Tired of trying names
I just downloaded on a new phone. I am a royal wazer and a baby wazer at the same time. Can't do anything on my account. Also would be nice to drop pins and name locations on map. There is a lot of problems with logging in when you update devices. I have been a wazer for more than 3 years. I have had many accounts. So just plan on creating new accounts over time.
Very useful 5/5
Love this app.
Very good 4/5
Would love to be able to fully control notifications.
I hate, hate when waze tries to guess where I'm going.
This said, waze is the best.
Great app 5/5
When we use this app especially when going to Fla from Pa on 95 it save us lots of time and fuel we Tow a 30 ft mobile mansion .
Queen Approved 4/5
Commute saver 4/5
Couldn't have survived my hour commute without Waze. Wish they had a long distance version for road trips!
Can't live without it!! 5/5
I use Waze everyday! Love knowing where to go and if there's a traffic jam coming up!! So glad u guys developed this app!!
The only GPS I use 4/5
I love the adjustments for traffic
LOVE IT! 5/5
Best thing ever!
Sometimes great 3/5
For the most part this app is great about finding multiple side directions that will save you time, however it does not calculate all of the variables in LA such as driving past a busy route and freeway entrance to the OTHER freeway that will save you another 15 minutes. ALSO the verbal cues are inconsistent- one direction will be repeated 5x but you're getting off a freeway and the direction for where to turn is ALWAYS late.
Great app!! 5/5

Love that it gets me around traffic!

Love Waze! 5/5
By Cookie E
This is the best and most reliable app for directions, alerts, and reroutes. I've tried others and always return to Waze!
Waze is awesome! 5/5
Fantastic app. Very reliable 👍
What a great app - I use it ever day. I didn't give it a perfect score because it isn't great when searching for places to eat or fuel. My other apps work better for that.
Awesome app helpful
Very satisfied 5/5
By Firewalker/Engine Co.42
Very good app 5/5
Most helpful feature to me is they show where you park, which helped me a lot, since we had a huge parking lot.
Fast notification by other wazers about police on road is also very useful
Daily part of my life 5/5
I travel by car often as part of my job. This app has pretty much replaced my on board navigation system. Love how it is intuitive where on board system is not. Would recommend to anyone. The more the merrier.
I love this app! 4/5
By Sarah Boulden
Waze is by far the best navigational app I've come across. I love how it automatically directs me around traffic, and that it lets users communicate dangers on the road.
I've been having a problem with mine recently, however, when I'm driving on the interstate. Occasionally it will think that I've exited the road, and will tell me to turn onto one of the town roads. It's extremely confusing when I'm using the app for navigational purposes and not just to hear the alerts.
Losing all my accrued points sucked 4/5
By Max EPR
I like the app and use it quite a bit, however you'd never know because when I upgraded my phone it dumped my points. If I weren't such a he man I would cry like Snoopy. .....
Ok I cried like Snoopy
Really Helpful 5/5
This app is really helpful. If you don't know the area it will be able to find routes that you would never be able to figure out given the real time traffic patterns. If you are a commuter it will give you alternative routes that almost always save you time except in the context of the changing traffic patterns when you should balance the Waze information with your own experience.
Saved me lots of time 5/5
Don't argue just trust Waze. There's a reason they send you a certain way.
By Le vic
Awesome navigation app went to San Antonio got there without any issue or getting lost. Thanks developers for this great app
User made. User friendly 5/5
Love it ... Live by it 5/5
Use this App everyday. Helps me get to work and home the fastest route and avoid those pesky traffic backups. Also navigating a new city and road tripping is a breeze. You literally have thousands of people helping you know what's going on in real time. Thank you wazers.

I love it 5/5
This is one of the best navigation apps I've ever used. My favorite feature is being able to see the speed limit!
Best invention since sliced bread. 5/5
How did we survive before Waze???!
We spent a lot of wasted time in the car.
I LOVE Waze! It's the best navigation app I've ever used
Great app 5/5
Only thing that could be done better is more info for nearby restaurants and gas... which exit do we take?
By Traveling kooskoos
Great app and saves me lots of time
If I was on a desert island.... 5/5
... this is the one app that I would have with me. Except I wouldn't need it and I couldn't charge my phone. Never mind that, this is by far the most useful app that I have. I live in greater NYC and I commute daily to NJ, and this app saves me from many hours that I could be caught in traffic. Don't leave home without it.
Nice app 5/5
A bit slow on quick coming turns but overall best I've used by far
Best map app 5/5
Use this to get to your favorite destination.
