Waze Navigation & Live Traffic app reviews

  • Bad Update 2/5

    By calebhays
    Most recent update refuses to use GPS on my iPhone XR running the latest iOS, which prevents Waze from giving turn-by-turn directions and makes the app worthless for my commute. Apple Maps and Google Maps work fine, and Waze has all permissions in Location Services, which are switched on. Hopeful a forthcoming update will rectory this problem.
  • Not worth the hype 2/5

    By Zkeller611
    For the past three weeks this so has driven me directly into traffic. Despite major crashes and rush hour it took me so right through the major roads while the back road was clear. Very frustrated with this app
  • Failed to communicate with the routing server 1/5

    By bksd0
    Failed to communicate with the routing server
  • Auto zoom 1/5

    By ifhone
    They took away the option to turn off auto zoom always in and out gets you dizzy unusable
  • Auto Zoom... 1/5

    By J-Dubbya
    You need to make it a preference and not force folks to use it. Loved it beforehand now I feel like, ‘...meh’.
  • Commercial vehicles 4/5

    By Adamtroy
    Great app!!! I use the app daily but I’ve noticed in the last few updates there have been changes or upgrades made to allow user to customizes their settings to better fit their needs. I’m a truck driver & there is always a constant battle trying to plan my route on roads that are permitted. As a loyal daily user of waze I would like to see in the setting where you can select commercial vehicles as one of the options under the vehicle details tab in the settings. Thank you & keep up the awesome work!
  • Now only talks to itself 2/5

    By DJ_in_LA
    1) Recently, Waze stopped communicates through my radio via Bluetooth. A few days ago I concluded a recent update blew up the function. 2) for much longer than the earliera, I found that Waze displays some sort of an apparent as or communication app. That display silenced my directions (When that function still worked.)
  • Essential Features Broken 1/5

    By MaybeAfterLunch
    January 1019: Auto Zoom has always been annoying. Now it can’t be switched off. Apple Maps, here I come! October 2018: None of the following problems have been fixed, but hey! Now you can get inadequate directions on CarPlay too! >.< August 2018: WazeFail yesterday. Huge crash on the bridge (I follow multiple state agencies) no alert from Waze. “Continue straight to [traffic snarl]”. I kept expecting the “traffic is building up ahead” alert and a reroute. Three miles from the accident, traffic is at a standstill. Still no reroute, “expected time in traffic, 14 minutes.” I ignored Waze and took the next exit, which is also a divided highway. My ETA was only 5 minutes longer than my original, but I spent ZERO time in traffic! (I actually didn’t see what the ETA update was, when Waze finally figured out there was major unexpected traffic…) July 2018: (possibly fixed, gee thanks!) Tapping ( ' ) to shut down Waze will lock up your iPhone 6s. Use the App Switcher and force close Waze. Shared drive ETA still broken but now when you try to view their drive, the screen is completely black, forcing you to close Waze. June 2018: Favors freeway route even though the major highway route is quicker: (when I get off the freeway and turn onto the highway, my ETA drops 5 minutes) There is stop and go traffic on the freeway but only stoplights on the highway. I almost always take the highway, 12 months now, and Waze still recommends the freeway. The highway isn’t even listed in alternate routes. (I wish Waze would ALWAYS recommend FIVE alternate routes, and not just a two-block detour near my destination, as the only ‘alternative route’) Shared drives aren’t viewable: (kind of a flagship feature…) The iOS notification initially provides an accurate estimated ETA, but then: After tapping the notification, only the destination is shown. Recommended routing, approximate location, and current ETA have all quit working! No ETA updates are given except “[friend] is arriving 5 minutes late”, which is only helpful if you happened to write down the iOS notification ETA (because only the current local time is incorrectly shown as an ‘ETA’.) You do the math! Literally! “No GPS; Try going outdoors”: Well, actually I’m sitting in my car, in the parking lot, hoping for a traffic update from Waze… Seems to be even worse when iOS Low Power Mode is on, in an attempt to make most processing, bandwidth, and power available to Waze, not background activities… Unable to find a route: (REALLY?!?) Happens most frequently during rush hour. It’s bad enough that Waze servers are unable to handle rush hour data loads, but the fact that it promptly forgets/clears your selected destination within the app, forcing users to reduplicate their efforts, is just sloppy programming. -user since 2012, formerly enthusiastic
  • Google is killing Waze 2/5

    By Colehw
    This used to be one of the best mobile apps in existence. However, things have been going downhill the last year or so. It started with the app no longer wanting to take short cuts through residential neighborhoods. That’s ok, I get them changing that due to complaints. What I don’t get is why it now has major issues connecting to a server, updating events on routes, and constantly crashes. It crashes so much that we barely use it anymore. It’s really a shame.
  • Amazing GPS but 1 flaw 5/5

    By Bkajanettty
    Like I mentioned it is the only GPS I would use on my phone but the problem is that you cannot route replanned route if it long distance. It keeps saying something along this “error calculating route”. Please Waze fix this!! I don’t want to use google maps!
  • Auto zoom disabling button 1/5

    By RafaMelo
    What's the need to eliminate the button to disable autozoom button?!!!!!? Now I have to constantly be pinching the screen to see the map better. I want the button back!!!! That is not improving the app, it's putting it worse!
  • Destroying my battery 1/5

    By BrockDiesel
    I’ve been using Waze for a long time and have been generally pleased, but recently it has become unusable. If the Waze app is running, my phone’s battery drains at a rate of about 3% per minute, meaning it will fully discharge the battery from full in about 30 minutes, even if I’m not actively using the app. It’s bad enough that it even drains at a rate of about 1% per minute WHILE THE PHONE IS CHARGING! This renders the app effectively useless for me.
  • The change with the auto zoom is annoying 4/5

    By Strictly BMW
    App is awesome hands down the best, but after the recent update where setting your own preferred zoom level has been removed I'm beginning to not like this app now. It's very inconvenient not to mention hard to use with it always being super zoomed out. Please fix this!!!!
  • Difficult 1/5

    By ditty b
    The idea for this app is great. The execution not so much. It’s difficult to use. The report feature isn’t always easily accessible. It doesn’t easily let you report for a location other than your exact location. For instance, I spotted a hidden police officer on my drive home. The officer was approximately 3 blocks from my house. When I went to report after reaching home, Waze wanted to report the officer at my house; false and not helpful. Plus the app drains my phone battery so quickly. I deleted.

    By AngryBarry99
    CANNOT turn off AUTOZOOM - there is no longer an option to do so. AUTOZOOM is extremely distracting and aggravating and there is no option I can find to turn it OFF. Yes it affects my driving that much in regards to safety and being distracted by AUTOZOOM and unfortunately Waze is no longer my favorite app because of this. I’m going to start looking for alternatives now.
  • Getting progressively worse 3/5

    By frankglez
    Waze used to automatically mark my parking spot when it disconnected from Bluetooth. Now it requires access to my steps (health data), and there is no option to use the olde method. Google Maps suddenly started marking the parking spot when Bluetooth disconnects, so it looks like they are migrating features away from Waze and into the main Google Maps app. Preparing to discontinue Waze perhaps?
  • What happened? 2/5

    By CraziTalk
    I used to use this app all the time on road trips, but with the last update (I imagine, because it worked fine last month.) it all went wrong. 1. It’s not adjusting music volume correctly 2. It’s not providing a realistic ETA (off by hous of what it actually was) 3. Not providing route changes when asking for routes (keeps timing out). 4. Not updating route based on traffic (except for twice and both at the last minute where I couldn’t get to the route change in time.) I hope they can fix these problems, if they can I’d give it a solid 4 stars.
  • Getting Worse & Worse 2/5

    By Roseskd
    Waze has always been my go to GPS. After obediently following their recommended routes for a long time, I’ve noticed that they ended up causing me significantly more miles & time after comparing the same routes with other apps. It’s as though Waze has gotten stupid! I’ve been questioning so many of their routes that it finally hit me...move in.
  • Deleted this app 1/5

    By Tdj2591
    Installed, tested then deleted Waze app. To get from my home to the nearby interstate, it routed me via the longest route, through a major shopping area and via the only route with numerous traffic lights and typically heavy stop and go traffic. All other mapping apps, like Google Maps and Mapquest, take the significantly shorter, more direct route that has a single traffic light and virtually zero traffic.
  • Forces Auto-Zoom 1/5

    By DJ in CA
    Skip this version if you prefer fixed zoom. It auto-zooms all the time. The preference setting is gone. When you are stopped at a traffic light, you can see further down the road with your eyes, than you can with Waze. If it happens to be a turn, you won't see if another turn is coming right up, or if some hazard is more then 100' in front of you. The scale is constantly changing when you are in city traffic. Its distracting and pulls your eyes of the road. Sometimes it zooms in on a freeway offramp when you are supposed to go straight. Seeing that jump will make you think it's time to get off. So either make a crazy lane change and get lost, or put a lot of attention on Waze instead of the cars in front. When you are moving at freeway speeds, zoom is set to show about a mile up the road. As traffic is building, the real stoppage is before the first report. If you can't see more than a mile ahead, you won't be on high alert when you reach the real stoppage. I use Waze for routes I drive regularly. I know where I need to turn. What I don't know is exactly what traffic is like ahead of me. If Waze won't show that to me, it has no value. Worse, the aggravation and distractions make me feel unsafe if I'm driving with it. Waze had been great up until now, but I feel the developers have made it unusable and distracting. And when I contacted tech support about these problems, they tersly replied, "Please be informed that disabling auto zoom is no longer supported. We’re always looking to improve Waze,..."
  • Not a good update 1/5

    By landofawe
    1. Continuously crashing and will not return to the route. 2. It is not plotting good courses. 3. It is not telling you about delays soon enough to avoid them. 4. How do you stop the auto routing? When I leave for work it automatically starts routing for my work place and the same for home after work. I always have stops to make and do not need this function.
  • Auto zoom is dangerous and now it’s always on 1/5

    By ChicagoDave312
    The auto zoom feature can no longer be disabled in the configuration. Because of this if you were driving and don’t take the suggested route the map zooms in an out in an unpredictable manner, making navigation useless. Even with predicted routes if you lose GPS or it gets confused about your location on the map zooms in and out unexpectedly. The only way to fix this is to manually zoom in every 10 seconds, which is dangerous and not something anyone should be doing. I will not be using the app until they restore the ability to disable AutoZoom.
  • Amazing app use it daily 5/5

    By KU-NAR
    They do listen and fix issues super quickly amazing out and using it for years
  • Not sure what happened... 3/5

    By shelbi 72
    This was my “go to” app for gps .... not sure what happened but the with the last update now you cannot turn off the “auto zoom” feature... it is unbelievably annoying when trying to watch on the phone or on Apple car play. It is constantly changing zoom level on you. Even if you zoom all the way into street view to better gauge where you are it will suddenly zoom back all the way out. It has become almost unusable. Shame. It was one of the best.... please fix this mess. Put back the zoom lock so we can stop it from doing this .... other than that it’s perfect but that’s enough to make you crazy when trying to use it.
  • Ver 4.47.3 5/5

    By Jim Ellis (DChiJEllis)
    Update fixed all known audio issues. Best version yet.
  • Limo Lady 5/5

    By Fit4fun50
    I drive for a living and can’t live without this amazing app. I brag about to anyone who will listen. Every body I tell thinks this is awesome. Highly recommended!!!!
  • I always click on this trash on accident. 1/5

    By pizzadylan
    Get off Spotify. This app is worse than Google or apple maps.
  • Wish it worked on the Apple watch 4/5

    Wish it worked on the Apple watch
  • No auto-zoom off. 4/5

    By richibolo
    Latest update has no auto zoom switch on-off. Please fix it as it was before.
  • Harriet 5/5

    By MS&G
    Waze is the perfect traveling app. It’s been accurate, saves time by rerouting when there’s an accident or back up. It would be nice to have a way to let it know your pulling a travel trailer when considering alternate routes while traveling.
  • Great App 5/5

    By kc fuchi
    Waze has saved me many hours by helping me get to my destination on time!
  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

    By 808euro
    Effective for my travel needs.
  • Hate pop up ads 4/5

    By ...3457...
    Keeps me on time but I hate the pop up ads
  • Auto zoom no longer supported 1/5

    By caliae86
    Unable to control auto zoom has made using this app very unstable for the average users. I’ve used this app since it was at its inception. Hopefully they bring back some control of this function when enough voices are heard. Thanks
  • Useless 1/5

    By fer077
    Don’t like it. I used it three times and got stuck in really bad traffic twice. The app didn’t even register them. Going back to Google maps
  • Doesn’t work on Honda displays before 2016 4/5

    By ggfyhftyh
    Honda Civic SI with touch screen. Still does work on the in car touch screen Apple hates to let people use things So my phone sits in a cradle and runs waze on its screen Waze works great it is Apple that hates to let anything none Apple work on or through an IPhone
  • Horrible at guessing at the address 2/5

    By Thourdin
    Sometimes the search result keeps flickering and giving me the right address, but as I tap on it the wrong address shows up and gets tapped on. The results should stay stable when I’m finished.
  • Love it but latest Sync glitch is annoying 2/5

    By MikeC59
    Have used the app on and off for years, and daily for the last 5 months. Within the past few days a glitch has developed whereby audio now wants to function via a phone call — basically rendering any other form of entertainment useless. Have tried everything I can think of but to no avail. Hoping another update will fix this.

  • Impressive 5/5

    By Equalitylove
    Big improvements with Waze. Like the new changes that they have made. Very easy to use and great for knowing what’s going on ahead while driving. Had this app about 6 years ago and it was horrible got me lost in Miami giving it another chance. So many improvements since then. Keep up the good work Waze.
  • Meh 2/5

    By CLS8201
    There’s a few features I appreciate: counting down how long you’re in traffic. But it’s changed and meh 1) sometimes Waze chooses the most congested routes which is infuriating 2) when I share my trip, the other person can’t see my eta or my trip progress and location. Could y’all improve that?
  • What happened? 1/5

    By missuspenguin
    I don’t know what happened in the last update, but from one day to the next, the app places me about 2 miles away from where I am. I know it’s not the phone because Google maps doesn’t have any issues. Essentially it’s useless as I can’t get an accurate location. I’ve been using Waze for years, but it has gotten worse over time.
  • very useful app 5/5

    By Behzad heydari
    i live in iran and mostly use this app for my trips inside city tehran and outside i love this app and i dont know what can i do travelling without this.
  • Suggestion 4/5

    By Bbxshkibfrzs4795://5
    I would really love if this app would account for road conditions as well... for example if there was heavy snow. Just a thought. It would really help out a lot of people like me who live in the north!
  • Latest glitch 3/5

    By Cari2416
    I’ve LOVED this app for years, but I’ve had more difficulties with it lately than ever before. The latest glitch doesn’t allow me to actually see the map. I get stuck on the written directions page and can’t get back. When I cancel the route, it leaves me on a black screen. Also, the alternate routes show up at the last second, which is dangerous and impossible to do without notice.
  • Phenomenal GPS, 4 years 5/5

    By Redvic50
    Hi WAZER! The USB port when the Apple phone cable is plugged into my car, causes my car’s SYNC 2 system to report that the Waze app’s language does not match the language of SYNC 2 and that voice controls or commands my not function properly. Then, the car’s SYNC 2 shuts down the WAZE app. I tried it several times. And every time I plug it into the car’s USB port, SYNC 2 reports that same issue and then it shuts WAZE off. But the Bluetooth works fine. I just updated the app and I will see if the problem is fixed. I just hope that I can charge my phone while using Waze. Also, it’s extremely important that you remove the auto zoom. It’s a hazard. Thank you! Safe travels.
  • Version 4.47.3 5/5

    Awesome! Especially after this update. There used to be a delay every time I switched to and from the app, that’s gone now. Keep up the great work Waze!
  • Keeps shutting down mid route 1/5

    By Mencjcndkc
    Love the app. But not if it runs half the time...
  • Zoom Change Fail 1/5

    By Syrinx2112x1
    Loss of the ability to prevent auto zoom is a dealbreaker. My wife already stopped using Waze and it looks like I might follow her lead. It’s the last of a number of disappointing straws, route selection being another big one.
