Needs a feature 3/5
It would be extremely helpful if there was a feature added to this similar to Google Maps so when you arrive, you can hit a button (on g maps you hit done) and it turns off directions/map so it is no longer using battery. Right now mine stays running in background unless I click the power off button inside the app.
Express lanes 4/5
Express lanes in chicago, the app is very helpful but like in chicago it will tell you when it is a accident or delays. But it doesn’t say express lane or local. So I end up sometimes stuck in express lane, because it does not say local or express. It would be great to be able to follow the lines into the right lane. Or say accident in north bound lane or south bound lane. Thank you but it’s still a nice app.
No voice commands 4/5
Would be 5 stars but I keep having an on & off issue with this app where the voice commands don’t work on the iPhone speaker, & only working when I’m using Bluetooth. It has happened before, then it stopped, now it’s doing it again. I tried uninstalling then reinstalling the app... still does it. And it is not an issue with my phone speaker, it’s Waze. Please fix this, I really don’t like using any other map app but sometimes I’m forced to because of this issue.
Keeps dropping connection to Waze servers 1/5
It's really annoying when, a full 60% of the time, the Waze app doesn't show traffic information because for some reason, it's not pulling that from the servers... This means the chosen route is unrealistic because heavy traffic, accidents, construction and road hazards are not taken into account. Sometimes, while driving, Waze will start "searching for network". My phone, and the iPad that's running Waze, both show full LTE coverage, and my phone is still receiving data, as is the iPad. Full uninstall/reinstalls of the app does not solve the issue.
names word by word translation 4/5

Please eliminate word by word translation which narrator says in the end of directions, it bothers in persian names.
Latest update has lowered my satisfaction 2/5
With the latest update I lost my account. Attempting to log in with my account information produces no response. These is no message about login success, nor is there an error message.
I have team calendars turned on for reminders such as for baseball or basketball games. Waze insists on sending me to them when I only want to watch them on tv. There should be an option for Waze not to integrate so closely with calendar.
Complete garbage. Never works, interface is terrible, eats battery. I don’t understand what the hype is about.
Doesn't center in landscape properly now 1/5
As of the latest update if the phone is in portrait mode it's fine but I mount mine in landscape orientation for GPS use and that's always worked fine. Until today. When it turn the phone sideways the vehicle indicator is as far from the right of the screen as it was in portrait. Except it's not anymore which puts it about 2/3 of the way from the left side of the screen. How did this get by QC?
No opus please. 4/5
By 49 GG
I don’t like the new
Pop ups. The carpool is distracting and hard to read while driving. Back to the old please.
Music malfunction. 4/5
When playing music through Waze and you open from lock screen it cuts out music for about 3 seconds. Doesn’t make the app terrible just not the best experience listening to music and being the passenger using different apps. Great for accurate arrival times. Great app. All my friends have it now.
App made me use phone while driving on hwy?? 2/5
I think it’s a cute app and I like the traffic updates but I did not like that an ad came up while I was using the gps...that doesn’t make sense to me
So far I like Waze. The only suggestion I have is it would be nice to use the planned drive feature and plan an extra stop along the route. For example if I want to make sure I leave for work on time depending on the traffic but I also have to drop my kid off at school along the way. Same thing with leaving work on time for an appointment while taking traffic into consideration but I also have to include picking up my daughter along the way.
What happened?? 2/5
I have been a huge fan and loyal user of Waze for years. Lately it has really let me down. It resets my route for no reason. The GPS has been the biggest issue. It cuts off, loses me on the road and sometime takes near a minute to load the route, loses me on major roadways ( I live in a major metropolitan area) Lastly, if I get one more “oops, unable to process route” the app is getting deleted. Please fix!!!!
Best navigation app there is! 5/5
You can add destinations, get real time updates, it has all the right options and tools! Even the fact that I can change the mood and the car color and model is amazing! Oh and great music controls straight from the app!
The best gps app 5/5
The Waze it’s the best but please add routes for commercial vehicles, many ppl complain about that specially in NY.
By appusive relationship
This application is best used when you want to avoid traffic. Simply turn it on and start following the route and discover that everything it told you about the traffic is wrong. I am actually sitting in standstill traffic right now. Silly me for thinking it would actually report correctly! Fool me once shame on you, fool me 15 times shame on me.
App Rating 4/5

App does not always work
Gordon construction 5/5
By gordon construction
Sure is the best app for navigation
Getting places 4/5
Waze is so easy to use, and the app is pretty reliable to get places, only thing I need and want is if there is a traffic jam for the app to show other options.
Simply the best 5/5
No question and I tell many people this.
Takes you to different destinations than you wanted 3/5
This app is good for traffic alerts, but don’t use it for a programmed destination. About 50% of the time it will take you somewhere other than the address you programmed it to go to. I’m not sure how that happens, but it happens. Really annoying!
Great app just one tiny fix needed 4/5
Please fix bug that messes with my music app every time I open or close the app
Needs to be added! 2/5
This app is amazing but wish you can add border lines on the states in red so I can see when I cross to another state.
FIX PREVENT AUTOLOCK ITS NOT WORKING 2/5
the prevent autolock disengages - super annoying
Used to love it 1/5
Still not connecting to Facebook despite claims that it should be working. For some reason Waze no longer connects to Facebook where many of my events are coordinated. It’s still offered in settings but stopped connecting months ago. Customer support claims they are working on it but I suspect they aren’t and won’t admit to it. No longer as useful to me and I’ll probably delete it.
Perfect for apple carplay 5/5
It works great with apple carplay, please add speed show and speed alert in carplay too.
Update causing problem! 1/5
After last update cannot get to map, keeps bring up settings!
Great app does a great job getting the driver around quickly & in less time
A few changes needed 4/5
For starters, I try to get everyone I know to use Waze. Especially in the small town areas.
With that being said, one improvement would be to allow us to report more specifically the type of police we encounter. Whether DOT, Game & Fish, County/State Trooper.
This would be beneficial to so many people.
One other request would be an app to edit with rather than having to do it on the web.
Launched carpool app 1/5
Lately it launches the carpool app while driving and navigating. This is dangerous in high traffic and Los Angeles traffic. Using Sygic from now on.
Waze what happened? Please fix your app 1/5
After I got my Bluetooth hearing aids Waze became my go to app for navigation. It was fantastic to be able to hear a clear voice alerting me to road hazards, Red light cameras, and police activity. The routes were efficient and time saving and I loved being able to pick different voices. I would still be using Waze now but am unable to ever since the Bluetooth implementation has been changed. Now I am greeted with a very loud beep followed by an inaudible voice and then another painfully loud ear piercing beep ☹️ At first I thought the problem was something on my phone, but when I asked my audiologist about she said all her patients with Bluetooth enabled hearing aids were having the same problem. Please fix your app.
The app is great but has bugs 3/5
By Bonyo B
The app is the best in class but it does not act properly on Apple CarPlay. Sometimes I cannot type address, it crashes the whole stereo which then reboot, there is plenty to be fixed on it.
Love traveling with Waze 5/5
Friendly, easy to follow travel companion with great routes and interesting road-condition options.
Awesome. Thank You
Soon to be former user 3/5
Sick of overheating my phone with Waze. Not willing to risk my phone. What is the deal? If you cannot solve it I am done with waze.
By Dallan murray
Just another Google tool. Love it or leave it. 3/5
I am seeing a lot of negative reviews on this app lately. Most of these reviews are about what Waze doesn’t do well for the user with recent updates. Remember, this is not why Google bought Waze. While they will continue to throw the user an occasional bone to keep you using the app, most of their programming focus will be on what the app can do for Google. Google-Waze will excel in pushing advertisements and in tracking your every movement.
Just another Google tool. Love it or leave it.
Waze is great. I would have given 5 ⭐️ but at times the voice control will not work.
If they could add weather radar, it’d be another layer of amazing
This App is Great When It Works 2/5
But I consider myself lucky if it does. Usually takes a few tries minutes to get the app to start working, and lately it has been going out of service during the middle of a trip for absolutely no reason. I will not travel through unfamiliar roads with this app.
Awful ways 1/5
We are just turning around. Thanks to ways for all these stupid and awful ways
I was a fan, but app seems to have become less reliable and has even caused issues with CarPlay in my car. Speed display worked only when disconnected from the car USB. Would like the reliable app back.
Always on time 5/5
Best way to go anywhere and get there on time..🥰❤️
Love it 5/5
By Crazy Wilma
I didn’t go any were without it
It was good when it came out and now it’s incredibly dangerous with all the unnecessary pop ups and noises. Deleted and won’t come back until they get rid of all the clutter.
Needs work 1/5
This app is fine unless you need to find food or gas on your route. It would be nice is it could partner with yelp or something so if you’re driving and want fast food it actually shows you where fast food restaurants are for example.
Thanks Google, this app is in freefall 1/5
Why? Why would you remove the map when searching for a navigation point. Oh that’s right, so we have to use your craptastic GoogleMaps navigation. Thanks Google product people for asking before removing features.
Wonderful application 5/5
Don’t know what we would do without waze. We use it all the time.
Better than Garmin and OnStar mapping 5/5
We used this on cross country trip & preferred the routes it suggested to our other devices. It warns of traffic jams, hazards & police presence. Super app- easy to use.
Changed for the worst 2/5
Used to be very user friendly but the new interface is difficult to see (read: dangerous), doesn’t provide prompts until the last minute and the ads overlay on top of directions at the worst time, especially when driving at low speed in busy intersections causing you to miss turns.
