Last update (November 2017) with delay 1/5
How come the clear integration with Google Maps made waze be all the time with a lag that confuses all the time? Please, guys, fix it!!!
Great, but needs X formatting 5/5
Waze is my go to nav app, but it needs some updates for iPhone X comparability. Namely, the "wake" button is right on the home bar.
Useless for the express lanes 1/5
Waze is good for seeing speed traps but a complete POS for the express lanes. It's as if they don't exist. As of 11/21/2017 waze is still completely useless on the express lanes literally showing the dumbest most ignorant routes to get around the area. 1 star from me and I'm a king wazer whatever that means.
Delayed positioning made me miss turns 3/5
This latest update makes my position on the map delayed. Making it look like I still have some more distance to travel before my turn. It has made me miss my turn a few times now where there are multiple close options for a right hand turn. It never did this before but now it is very noticeable. Good navigation app overall. It was 5 starts before this lag started happening.
Add one thing 4/5
Would love to see the ability to report LANE closures or backups.
Keep flowing 4/5
Love the app and appreciate all the ways it has kept me away from the mass traffic. Great way to keep flowing even in the busy times of day. Some of the interceptions it brings you to can be a bit tricky though.
New update does NOT avoid traffic jams. 2/5
So the newest update claims it helps you avoid traffic jams even better. For my husband and I we have had the opposite. It routinely directs us to get on highways that have a clear traffic jam for miles. It no longer alerts or offered alternate routes around traffic jams but let’s you sit there (and gives inaccurate wait times. Guess what Waze 16 min slow down isn’t the same as sitting there for an hour in construction zone.)
Waze just isn’t as good anymore and is on par with Google Maps.
Babies don’t drive-we don’t need to earn candy 3/5
By adult driver
The rewards of “candy” are childish and the sound distracting. I just want to get where I’m going and avoid traffic jams if possible.
Love the App, NOT the update 2/5
Long time Waze user since 2013. Current version needs to be adjusted. Having tremendous lag during navigation causing me to miss streets. Data loading seems to be straining connection
A crowd pleasing crowd sourced traffic app 5/5
Waze is an excellent crowd sourced traffic tool that allows the driver to quickly see where to go in Order find the quickest route home. Helping to keep drivers out of traffic for prolonged periods of time, Waze helps reduce frustration in increase the enjoyment of driving. Adding extra icons makes driving a cooperative competitive sport where Waze are‘s end up with different decorations based on how much they drive. For free you can’t ask for anything better.
My age it’s not easy to get around but Waze helps me to get there
I like Waze 5/5
This app keeps me ahead
By Ta Viana
I love ease, I had all the time as my first gps app, but now after the update It is taking forever on the road. This new version is NOT in the RIGHT TIMING as your car is moving. Pretty much you pass the entrance and the gps is showing you still have that entrance a front .
Actually I cancel my last profile to download again to see if that problem solved but the problem still happening!!!
Great but... 5/5
Waze is great but I wish there was an option to use it as a normal Navigation app or even a threshold. An example is if the route is going to save me under 5 min. then ignore the traffic on the route.
Waze is amazing.... 4/5
But why is the map off centered now? It’s throwing off the view while driving. The directions appear in the top left instead of the top center making the directed path push to the right. Please fix.
Needs HOV/ carpool option!!! 2/5
I'm almost always carpooling. I carpool every single day to work, and I take a route with a walled-off carpool lane separate from the normal lanes, so I think it would recognize where I am and adjust my time accordingly.
Perhaps Waze should add a toggle function for defaulting to the HOV route, or ask a pre-departure question for number of occupants, or have it as an optional "single or passenger" route choice?
Please add something to distinguish our route options based on the number of occupants!!!!
I'm getting sick of Waze telling me to exit the carpool lane at every single opening! Trust me Waze, the regular lanes on I-5S are not faster than the HOV!!!!
We Love it!!! 5/5
By BIOMineral Plus
We use this app to make our water deliveries here in Atlanta and it saves us a ton of time and resources during the day.. the alternative routes function gives us an edge on our competition by delivering on time. Thanks Waze team for your innovative product!
Final destination address 4/5
The only reason I didn’t give 5 stars is because the final destination address in not listed on the top banner as you near your destination. The destination balloon is not always on the correct side of the street.
Like the features of this app but half the time, during peak drive times, the app cannot get a response from their servers and times out. This has been happening for a long time now so I guess they refuse to fix it. If by chance it does get a response from the server, it takes forever to pull up the route. Don’t even think about looking at alternative routes because they will not load.
So far so good 5/5
By JAH tempo
Haven’t encountered no issues with the app .....
A VERY GOOD THING ! 5/5
By edward m bryner
YOU GET LOTS OF INFORMATION WITH THIS SITE !
A MUST HAVE 3/5
Fix the bugs soon
Used to work, no gps 1/5
By FLewis (SPEEDY)
Was working for me until I think iOS 10.3.3. Since then it hasn’t been working at all. I’ve tried resetting every single setting related to location services and gps. Had my phone replaced twice as well for faulty gps. Still every time I open Waze I get a “no gps connection” warning come up when I click on the orange button to report something on the road. It no longer follows me as I drive anymore to warn me about hazards or police. Hoping this can be fixed soon...
Not many apps get 5 stars from me 4/5
Still use this app regularly. It’s always on when ever I travel.
There is an issue I would like you to address. I tried posting to your support page but it would not allow me to submit.
I just updated to iOS 11 for my iPhone 6s Plus and updated Waze to newest version of Waze 4.32.
I use the phone and app in the landscape position and the app is moving my car icon to the bottom right of the screen. Even when I hit the re-center icon on the the map screen. When I turn the phone to the portrait position the car icon moves back to the normal bottom center position.
Anything you can do to address this?
I just updated to the new version. I love the look for the most part and it feels easier to use. But I have changed my five star rating to a four star rating because there's a few things that you guys may want address.
#1 please bring back the ability to change map colors. For me higher contrast work best while driving.
#2 please bring back the ability to place hazards in the opposite lane.
#3 I use to love the fact that I could look ahead on the map and tell by the icons on the map what was coming up but now they are just blue and yellow dots until you get really close.
I used to think that this app was kinda dumb.
But here I am almost 8 months later and I use this app on a daily basis.
It does a great job of helping you track traffic issues and the scoring system helps you keep engaged and provide information to other wazers. They also do seasonal games of which you play to gain extra points.
So far maps have been accurate. The one map issue I had was dealt with and corrected easily.
If you travel like I do get this app.
So smart and so easy 5/5
Great app and always steers me right.
This stupid app stops navigating in the middle of the road half the time. Wouldn’t it be nice to at least know if your destination is on the left or the right before you pass it. Ugh.
Was a die hard wazer 2/5
I didn’t connect Waze with Facebook or my calendars, so it shouldn’t be calculating if I need to leave for my next calendar event. I have the location privacy setting to “when using the app”. Even after all of that I have seen Waze polling my location when the app was COMPLETELY closed. It was not running in the background. Sorry Waze, you violated my trust. Deleted.
Uninstalling after years of use :( 1/5
I am so sad to be writing this review, as I have been a loyal wazer for a couple of years. I told everyone I knew that this was the best navigation app ever and every time I switched phones it was one of the first apps that I downloaded. I don’t know what in the hell happened but it has become awful. Twice in a row now it has taken me to the completely wrong location and I mean in the middle of nowhere 30 minutes away from where my destination actually is. It’s a waste of time, gas, and somewhat dangerous considering it dumped me in the middle of an unfamiliar neighborhood twice. I’m sorry but fool me once shame on you etc. I’m uninstalling immediately.
Shuts down stitcher podcast etc 1/5
Please fix this. It is unusable every time Waze gives directions it pauses music, podcasts etc on several platforms. You have to reopen iTunes and restart playback.
Best app to travel by 5/5
I don’t go anywhere without using this app. Once you try it you will see why. It is great for long trips or just around town.
What happened to the voice that i had before the update. I like those a lot better than choices that we have now. What happened to MR T and the other cool dude voice? Bring them back
Used to be a great ap 1/5
Newest update puts the pop ups below directions. Makes Waze the same as google but with more battery drain.
Road closures are often not noted.
Really Apple maps seems to be the most up to date lately.
On a personal preference note, the ui is much harder to use than the original app.
I used to love Waze. I hope the fix the things but it seems their time has come and gone.
App closes out after new update 5/5
5 star because I love the app but I just updated the app and now everytime I try and open it it closes it self out I'm on iOS 8.1.2 please fix this asap thanks not sure why I can't open the app anymore it's just closes out and won't open up fully anymore
Update issue with iPhone X 3/5
By Go to maps
The most current update is not working correctly with iPhone X while listening to Apple Music. The Waze app makes the music stop and skip, please advise?
By Jim of Boston 2/5
I really like to use Waze app but my big problem each times i used it First when you lost one exit sometimes he take too much time to recalculate and then the second some times Waze started normally but in some area in Boston MA like tunnel he dropped you if you don't know exactly this area you'll lost deeper.
I thought each time someone used this App that's mean he need a good help or a good ideas.
All good with one fix if you can! 5/5
I just got the iPhone X and noticed that the display doesn’t flip completely upside down if you’re trying to charge your phone while in the cup holder and using the app. If this is an Apple limitation, that’s fine. If it’s a quick update that Waze can make, it would be greatly appreciated!
Life saver 5/5
By Fam Preciado
Had saved me from a few tickets and from getting stuck in traffic
My favorite app! I don’t drive without it.
Love it!!!! Edit 1/5
I always have it on in the car regardless if I'm using gps or not. I love when I'm headed to work and she'll let me know there was an accident or there's ever time added onto my drive and what's the next quickest route. I'll always double check and run my routes through Google maps but I've stopped because wade was always right ❤️ love it!
EDIT: when I first started using the app it was GREAT! Now it sends you in pointless circles, just to get you stuck in MORE TRAFFIC and then decide to add the traffic jam and come up with a “quicker” route which is LITERALLY THE MOST DIRECT ROUTE ANYWAYS... I use to use it a lot but I’m going back to google maps... not worth getting lost anymore. It’s happened 8/10 times the last few times and with being in a new area i rather be sure of where I’m going... I’ll come back when they update again...
Please fix iPhone X direction arrow! 3/5
It would be great if you guys could fix the arrow at the bottom of the screen on the iPhone X. When traveling the arrow is stuck at the bottom of the screen and is behind. I have almost missed a turn several times. Please fix! I’ve sent in screen shots to you guys as well.
Don't leave home without it!!!! 5/5
By Jackie zZz
Fast, reliable and to the point!!!! Gives you real time traffic updates.....I don't travel without it......and love the alert notifications on potholes, police and accidents......For the people, and by the people....way to go Waze!!!!!
Fun and helpful app 4/5
Love the interaction of the app and how users keep it as current as possible.
1. Announced that I had arrived at a Starbucks in the middle of an interstate
2. The map is frequently covered by a gigantic spinner
3. GPS tracking is really unreliable when starting/resuming a route.
Great App 5/5
By Red Label 1
Very pleased with Waze. Much better than my Garmin. However you need to watch out for the shortest or quickest routes, waze will sometimes lead you a stray. Still the best guidance system and the price is right.
Like it but.. 4/5
... they really need a setting for it to be inactive when closed. I have to specifically set to inactive every time I stop just so it won’t eat up my battery or use location services. They should be in settings to automatically work that way!!
Apple CarPlay Needed 4/5
I love Waze, the ONLY thing that could make it better is to be able to use it with Apple CarPlay!!!
Great App, useful 3/5
Love the App. Helpful in many ways. However , some things are a tad hard to use. The ability to mark a location is hindered by needing to remember what the menu system looks like. The points system means nothing and being able to mark your parking spot requires finding the correct option. Needs offline maps for local areas and ability to edit map is harder than it looks. Overall, useful app, just make it more user friendly and make driving enjoyable. Thanks.
Great app 5/5
Enjoying this travel app to help to plan ahead
1 Star for asking me to review. 1/5
