Routed me into a protest 2/5
Deleted this app. The ‘real time’ traffic is a joke. It routed me into a major traffic jam in the middle of some stupid protest.
There were dozens of routes that would have let me avoid this area at rush hour but Waze sent me right into the middle of the mess. Worthless.
I almost died because of Waze 1/5
I was driving from Los Angeles to San Diego, with my mother in a separate car. Our intention was to drive all the way down and stay relatively together. And for those that don’t know, the way from LA to SD is about a straight shot down the I-5. But instead of taking me on this route, Waze diverted me to an unexpected route that went through neighborhoods and side streets. It was convoluted and frustrating to predict where I was going to go, with all its unexpected turns. And this ended up leading me to a 4 way stop sign that a massive freight truck barreled through before their turn and almost smashed my car into a soda can. I’m lucky to be alive, and this wouldn’t have happened if the app had simply directed me in the most direct path from point A to point B, as opposed to the most complicated path to take that barely saved me any time at all.
In addition to this, in order to select the correct route to take, you have to manually scroll through multiple options which is entirely unsafe and unrealistic to attempt while driving, because it can and will list 5+ possible routes. The most direct route was all the way at the bottom, too.
Never again. I’m deleting this app. I value my life more than 5 minutes saved on a commute.
Avoid Ferries still not working. 1/5
By Ananda Bhairavi
A very good app, unless you live near a ferry. The app just doesn’t avoid it, despite the correct position of the selector in settings. All the alternate routes use the ferry too. Makes the app nearly useless. This is a know issue, as seen in year-old discussions online. Fix it!

I enjoy all the alerts that you receive making evert trip easier with less of the unexpected.
With Waze you get the most updated version of traffic, hazards, routes, and advisories, and you’re in charge of informing other Waze users navigate safely to their destinations by submitting advisories as you encounter a reportable situation. There’s only one way to go, the Waze way!
Lately Waze has been terrible at predicting the amount of time it would take for me to get to my destination and has made me late to work multiple times due to notifying me when to leave my house, only to add 30+ min of delays during the trip. Some of the detours it takes me on aren’t even helpful at all. I was once in a heavy trafficked highway when Waze notified me to get off an exit, and all it did was just lead me through the backroads with tons of traffic lights just to take me back on to the same highway! How is that even remotely helpful? After arriving 30 minutes late to my job today I’ve deleted Waze and will be sticking to Google Maps from here on out.
Love this app 5/5

This app help me travel all around the US.
Won't let you fix map problems 1/5
Sent in a map fix request and they argued with me and there's no option to reply to their reply to prove Waze and their team wrong, leaving inappropriate map issues with no way to fix them. Happens to me every month!! Screw your no right to reply half the time nonsense! I reported a map issue and could screenshot it but NOOO they want bad maps.
Bye bye 2/5
It was fun but the data and power consumption is too much I have to delete this today. Good luck Waz
Car play app 4/5
By KeLlY sHaY
I wish it would link with my car! Like maps and google maps does so I don’t have to stare down at my phone!!
I like it 5/5
I’m pretty happy with this app.
I’ve had almost no issue with the app it’s self, or the use of it.
It’s only flaw, is I wish Waze would merge with GasBuddy. Where I could see gas prices while I drive.
Hot phone issue 2/5
Since the last update my phone now gets way too hot while navigating! I have to close the app to cool it down but sometimes it decides not to provide audible directions. Problematic!
Poor platform and inability to lock in locations 4/5
Many times keeps me going in circles while others gps apps are straight to the location.
PLATFORM IS MOST OF THE TIME DOWN
GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER
Time estimation broken on iPhone X 1/5
The time estimation function is broken under “go later”.
Unusable PLEASE FIX! 1/5
Current update: 2nd bad update in a row...doesn’t know where I am, gives bad directions all of a sudden. Constantly redirecting saying proceed to highlighted route in 1.5 miles, for example. Tells me to exit highways for no reason. I think it’s a bad map update where the highway I use that is a couple years old doesn’t exist in Waze right now (Grand Parkway 99 in Houston).
Normally 5 stars! Best app out there for road trips and daily commutes. It will keep you going even when the cell service is minimal. Great alerts and saves time on long trips. Saved me 4 hours once when an accident shut down the highway and it was just able to divert me off the last exit before the wreck in time.
Über Driver 4/5
It’s great. But: Please stop automatically routing me home every time I open it despite my clicking on the screen to try and dismiss the screen. It’s not easy to do when driving. Also, please improve alternative routes. Some route can be combined but it has to have its OWN entire route.
Sometimes it takes forever for the app to load 3/5
Sometimes it takes for ever for the app to load your directions.
Overview Gone 1/5
Team how is that gone!? It was so useful!
Spotify Spam 1/5
By Joey gggdyyhvx
Waze has been great but I’m not always using it. I guess they have some new partnership or one bought the other in terms of Spotify. Now whenever I open Spotify there’s a HUGE pop up in the top (like 1/4-1/3 of the screen) that says “start waze” and doesn’t go away unless I close it. I’m in the car and usually kinda rushed and you’re adding an extra step to my life and sore to my eye.
1. If I need navigation I’ll start waze it’s pretty simple. It’s not like im sitting in Spotify picking a song thinking “man I wish I had some sort of navigation guess I’ll just wing it”
2. If I don’t need navigation I’m not opening waze. Leave me alone.
Waze deleted, Going back to google maps. Fix your partnership.
It is getting more glitches than ever! 2/5
To many glitches and crashes. For the longest time i went away from Apple Maps but had to come back. More reliable! When it works is great!
Best navigation app 5/5
I love being a Wazer. Accurate navigation and timely notification about everything from potholes to traffic jams.
Love My Little Wazee Friend!! 5/5
By John Jr's Roommate
My Little Wazee always comes through! Google and Siri drive me crazy, but not my little Wazee! It has never failed me; and, that’s why I love My Little Wazee!
I use this daily traveling to work and traveling out of state. Can we get a kids version? Please!!!! My son loves it and wants to hold the GPS. It’ll be cool to have him see the city, state or parish (county) we are traveling through. Also eliminating are we still in Texas or are we in Destin comments 😁 Also eliminating the accidental notifications and honks he send to other wazers, Sorry y’all
The best app 5/5
The bets app
Waze Not Working 1/5
Lately this app has a very hard time connecting to GPS and it takes minutes for it to start working properly. A few other friends are having the same issue. Please fix.
Lag issue but great for traffic 4/5
Really enjoy using and seems to keep me moving when there’s traffic. Major issue has been lag and it’s been going on for over a year. Really dangerous in urban settings with quick turns.
Stop the carpool ads! 1/5
The amount of pop up advertising has gotten so bad that the app is almost unusable now. Now with the launch of the carpool feature, obey popups every few minutes. I’m about ready to uninstall this thing.
Useless if the app doesn’t work 1/5
By Mircea B
It use to be a good app but the last two versions on iPhone 7 iOS 11.0.3:
- the screen is flickering if and when it actually running. If it’s not flickering than the screen just goes blank (all black)
- the app crashes very often or not even starting but crashes at the beginning.
- Did restarted the phone, uninstall the app and reinstalled and changed nothing. Still crashing.
- I use this app for more than three years and never crashed like this.
Update: the last two updates solved partially the crashing. It still crashes but less than before. Now instead of total crash it just turn the screen black. The flickering got back on sections of the screen in the app.
There are certain areas where Waze does not work, which is kind of disappointing because I like this GPS better than other ones I’ve used.
Added 30 min to my 1.5 hr trip 1/5
I don’t know how this app has such a great rating. I was re-routed 5 times due to heavy traffic and it added up adding 30 minutes to my trip with a 10month old in the car. Thanks waze?

If I can give you more than 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 i love this application 😘
Battery Drain 3/5
App drains my phones battery. Other than that I like the app.
Good bye battery 1/5
The app now uses location services all of the time. Literally 24/7.
Go to bed, wake up, no battery and Waze is still using the location.
Open app, hit the power button? Yeah, Waze says it isn't using battery but it's still using location services.
Google purchasing this company was the worst thing to happen to this app.
Waze no longer works 1/5
I use to praise Waze for finding the shortest route. However, now the only thing Waze finds is gridlock traffic. Fix it! I am going back to Google Map! Sad!
Left or Right? 3/5
Still new to this app and like it ok. It needs to tell you, when arriving at your destination if it is on your right or left. If that is not verbally given then renounce the address when you are near so you can beginn to look at address numbers.
Waze is the best app out... gives you real time travel as well as what to look for on the roads.
Gotten worse with changes 2/5
This used to be my “go to” navigational app but lately it has gotten very screwy. The route to my home AWLAYS takes me one street past the closest turn off, the instructions never sync up with where you are (the verbal and on screen directions are too slow and you end up missing turns on a regular basis) and in several locations the streets are incorrectly named. There is a street in Nashville TN that has NEVER been called what the app calls it! And how is it safe to report hazards at highway speeds when at the start of the app you can’t even use it unless you tell it that you are a passenger? Going back to another, more accurate app.
I love this app, but... 3/5
I love this app! But recently I have noticed that it drains my battery on my phone! I’ll start with a full battery and thirty minutes later I’m down to 40%. And it seems t be getting worse!! Please fix!!
It is very hard to drive, pull up the warning section, find the hazard or warning and then send it
Any way to make it safer
Getting better 5/5
By JT Ga
The more I get used to Waze, the more I like it. I’m getting used to constant updates on road conditions, etc
Best GPS App 5/5
Best GPS app - keeps you up to date as you drive - give you the best alternative routes to advoid traffic
I would love to use...if it would let me 2/5
I would love to use this app more, but it seems like every time I try, it says there is a connection error and closes the app. Try as I might for over a year, it just isn't practical to use a traffic app you can't open!
Terrible Wayz 1/5
Have heard such wonderful things about this app and its the worst app I have ever used. Trying to drive north from NC to PA on I-95 and it routes me on back roads with stop lights and red congested traffic?!? Time estimate was off by an hour and a half, mostly due to routing me east of DC to Rte301 to I97. Horrible. Going to delete app now.
Cool but needs improvement 2/5
By Esmerella mami fanci
This app DRAINS the battery very quickly so I dont use it as often as I would like
Not like it used to be 3/5
Very fussy lately- not finding routes, only sending messages, not notifications. Frustrating! Please fix what used to be a great app.
Awesone app 5/5
I was very impressed with this app. I like that it tells you when cops are up a head or when disabled vehicles are coming up. Easy app to use.
Loving Wazes all the way! 5/5
Waze is great. So many options plus you can say hi to your friends as you’re going along. Thank you for this great service!
Changed my life 5/5
I don’t drive anywhere without Waze anymore!! Love this app to pieces ❤️
Always gets me there 5/5
I can depend on waze to get me to my destination and advise me of traffic, police, accidents, potholes, cars on the side and other things. Couldn’t live without it.
