Waze Navigation & Live Traffic app reviews

  • Lost My Favorite Icon 3/5

    By Sliksilverm
    What happened to the Wrangler 4xe car icon? I was so happy to this one show up sometime during 2022 but now it’s been taken away! Why!?!?
  • Traffic ? 3/5

    By Lar12345668
    Here we go again with traffic they need to have a button a (detour button )because it tries to direct you onto traffic if you go around it keeps bringing you back to the same place you need a detour button because it’s no good there’s a lousy job at rerouting around traffic
  • Multi users blocked and comparing with Google 1/5

    By Stick picker
    My wife and I share the same apple account and previously both of us could use the Waze at the same time. Well they now they made it so you can only use it one one phone at a time. I now use Google Maps. My wife and I have now been in the same car several times since this change and compare the two apps. They are mostly the same but 2 times while the route was the same the ETA from Google turned out to be the most accurate.
  • Big problem I have with Waze 3/5

    By Txnlarry
    Love the app! Travel A LOT, and this is my go to navigation app. Works great no matter what city I’m in. There is one improvement I would like to see. A easy to see/ use pause button for when you go off your route for gas or a bite to eat! The constant warning to turn or u turn to get back on route is annoying. I usually turn Waze off to shut it up! Most of my trips I’m alone and cannot go digging for the volume or make any changes, so a obvious easy to see pause navigation button would make this a perfect app for me
  • Too many ads 1/5

    By Olando32819
    Too many ads! Can not see screens. Wasting data plans. Guided to the wrong location.
  • Freezes with CarPlay 3/5

    By Bryan07
    Occasionally freezes with CarPlay. The map stays static and won’t go live even with closing the app or disconnecting/reconnecting to CarPlay.
  • Glitchy as heck 3/5

    By Speed257
    I don’t know why, but when I connect to Apple CarPlay (with a factory provided Apple USB cord) Waze can be incredibly glitchy. Sometimes it has no idea where I am and sometimes it just freezes up and becomes unresponsive so I have to switch over to Google Maps which will work perfectly. I sure hope Waze figures this out soon. It’s very annoying.
  • A dying app 2/5

    By savagetyler
    I would bet most of these 5 stars were given years ago. This definitely was one of the best apps I had to avoid traffic find me a quick way home. Now there are soo many glitches and problems with it. It’s pretty much just Google maps now. This will drive me straight into traffic. It will tell me to take turns where turns don’t exist. It won’t even say there’s traffic at 4pm in Los Angeles on the 405 North on a Wednesday. It just seems like someone bought the app and said, “screw it.” Bumper to bumper traffic in Santa Monica for construction waze use to say take this side street that’s empty. Now it tells me to get back in the traffic infested street and get off the wide open side street. If you just need directions it’s fine if you want quick or alternate routes it’s not giving those to you anymore. Plus side it doesn’t drain your battery anymore.
  • Really Good 5/5

    By Amirmahdi2019
    واقعا عالیه حتی با وجود فیلترینگ
  • Search bar improvement/widget support 1/5

    By Sebas1701
    It is really good but there is a big issue when it comes to reliability in the search bar. It sometimes do not show me the right places in waze. Not like google maps but to show me more options of places when I do type in search bar.
  • Horrible 1/5

    By sockpirate69
    Every time i use this app over apple maps i regret it. it takes me backroads to save 25 seconds but ends up taking longer. Horrible. shut down your company
  • Battery drain 1/5

    By Brett928g
    Please fix the battery drain issue!!
  • Screen turns black when connected to Apple car play 1/5

    By YEET 436
    When I get in my car I go to turn on Waze but when it turns on the screen is black and I have to restart my phone so it connects and I can see the app on the car touch screen.
  • Fastest route 2/5

    By 3rd_coast_g
    Is very inaccurate about the fastest route. Also doesn’t reroute to fast route, keeps telling me to turn around to stay on suggest route from Waze. Wish it would save ur personal route so you can compare to what Waze suggests. I have been using Waze for over 10 yrs and doesn’t get any better
  • No Gps 1/5

    By La Lanka bob Sam
    Literally love Waze and use it everyday but for the past few months about half the times it literally doesn’t work. It says no GPS and says it’s using approximate location which never moves and isn’t accurate. Not sure why it happens I’ve tried everything updating app, deleting and redownloading, and even signing in and out of account but doesn’t make a difference. It’s obviously a Waze issue too because apple and Google maps work without an issue.
  • Very annoying 3/5

    It doesn’t stop when you get to your destination , keeps giving directions even if you are in the bathroom. Zoom in is very hard it’s only built for navigation purposes, I have to use google maps for information.
  • Fix 3/5

    By Taulr8668
    The alerts have been going downhill for a while. Some alerts don’t even announce, and some do not disappear when you say the alert is not there. I use the app all the time I drive since I have ran over things in the road. It is important to fix the bugs that seem to have shown up lately Also, voice still changes with different alerts. Police ahead is the voice I choose but the vehicle on side is a different voice
  • Bans you for reporting multiple accidents and pile-ups 1/5

    By Jaina2
    I had used Waze for years prior to this month and enjoyed being able to report accidents and stalled cars and getting notifications of traffic delays. My area had a large winter storm last month and I was driving 200 miles on highway during the time. I passed at least 4 large pile-ups and 10-12 cars on the shoulder after the storm including semi-trucks on their sides with contents on the shoulder. I reported the first 3 I saw and then immediately received a notification from Waze that I was no longer allowed to report due to reporting too frequently. What an absolute waste of an app. None of the pile ups or semis on the shoulder of the road had been reported on the app. If Waze wants to bam me from reporting multiple accidents then I am done with the app. I deleted it and will not be using it again. Long-time user of 8 years lost. Google maps has similar functions now so I’ll be using that instead. Do not recommend Waze at all anymore unfortunately.
  • Good app 5/5

    By Notfuee
    I remember a feature of almost like google. Maps where you could see. Maps and roads or layout of. Where your going
  • Glitches that affect driving 4/5

    By JACDavis
    I have my location on and can have been driving for a while then suddenly the app says I need to enable and to turn on when it’s safe… also the app randomly closes while driving. Neither of these are safe.
  • Perfection 5/5

    By R. DeLynn
    This is the perfect app! All in one great job guys!! And gals!! Keep up the good work!! Maybe some map skins would be cool?!
  • Double check it’s taking you to the correct address! 1/5

    It’s happened to me multiple times, where I put in an address, follow the directions only to find out it took me to some random place miles away. Finally had to delete it because I can’t afford for this to keep happening
  • Obnoxious Ads 1/5

    By RSells32
    Really really hate seeing these big ads every time I’m at a stop light or stop sign. Looks like I’m going back to Google Maps :/
  • Update? 3/5

    By Waltonhky
    Usually works great but recently is giving me just a black screen in my car or won’t update my location when trying to follow directions. Forces me to pick up my phone and try to figure out directions on there… which… is dangerous. What’s up???
  • Great app but switching your starting location should be much easier 3/5

    By cjstockman
    I couldn’t kill the app because it’s very useful. But a simple feature imo would be you could edit start point as easy as you could edit your destination. I couldn’t tell you how long it took me for it to stop using my current location as the starting point. In my perfect world. I would have the starting point default to current location but you could easy back that out and switch it to the desired location
  • Creepy invasive 1/5

    By Evilkid13
    The fact the app doesn’t allow you to turn off the invisible mode is lame. My app automatically placed me in “invisible mode” and now i can submit any input on road conditions. Second and the most uneasy feeling I get with this app is the fact that they track every bit of information tied to you. From where you go, what you search online, to what you spend money on. That’s beyond creepy but unacceptably invasive. I’ve use the app for notifications for road trips, but I wish there was a better and more responsive option that won’t stalk you like the creepers they are. Waze, do better.
  • Worse than Google Maps 1/5

    By why cant u use my name
    This app is not working as advertised at all. It does not tell me where police are until I am right next to them, then pops up on my map. It is constantly changing my route automatically while I’m driving, instead of staying in the route I selected. This has costed me time and money, and it has caused me to be late for work appointments because I have to take a much longer route than expected to avoid tolls after the app has switched my route without my approval. Does this company expect its users to switch routes while driving a car? That is incredibly dangerous. I will no longer be using this app. I would rather print out Mapquest.
  • Worst application ever 1/5

    By Dr malka
    Do not use this application very unprofessional particular in the big cities
  • BEWARE of “on your route” suggestions 1/5

    By MorganReneeG
    I used to love Waze but recently it’s been absolutely awful. It sent me to a gas station out of the way when it advertised it as “on my route” and “+0 min”. I had 3 hours left in my 16 hour trip, drove an hour to this gas station that was supposed to be on my route - and now I have 3 1/2 hours left. It’s also been wishy washy about providing directions at forks in the highway. I’ve had to just follow the lines on the screen several times this trip, causing me to miss two turns. “Continue straight” when it actually wanted me to go right for example. Didn’t provide any HWY names or markers at these forks. I’ve never had issues like this before and I don’t know what happened. I’d rather use Apple Maps than Waze at this point - that’s how bad it is.
  • Mr sam 3/5

    By sam009007
    The app crashes a lot and freezes up, plus it crashes my CarPlay. And alerts like car stopped when you tap not there it doesn’t remove the icon like it did before. The app always Changes my route. Traffic part is late delayed
  • Don’t bother! 1/5

    By Y3L1M5
    Check the app before I left work to go home and STILL got stuck on the interstate cause of a wreck! DELETE !
  • AI is bad but avoiding tickets is good 2/5

    By Mercur4
    Used ti be the best gps but now it seems to be having problems with the AI it keeps routing me to the tolls even when there out of my way costing me more miles, time and money for the tolls. It’s had me go in circles multiple times for no reason, had me take a left a right then a left instead of just staying on the road I was on and going straight there was no traffic reported so no reason for the poor routing, it would rather I sit in stand still traffic then go a minute out of my way by taking a different exit and driving through my neighborhood. At this point I only use it for the police warnings otherwise I look ahead of it while driving to see the route and then ignore all instructions since they’re wrong.
  • Rutas Largas 3/5

    By Samugome
    It shows you very long routes and there are shortcuts that can save time and gas but you don't take them as another option Too bad it doesn't let you upload photos because I have proof of what I say. Te muestra rutas muy largas y hay atajos en los que se puede ahorrar tiempo y gasolina pero no los toma como otra opción Lastima que no deja subir fotos porque tengo prueba de lo que digo.
  • The App is very slow, maps are outdated!!!! 3/5

    By Alexey Tokmin
    It looks like Waze App software doesn’t have good control over iPhone hardware. It picks up directions very slow and sometimes very annoying! Route calculation is not effective! I use the app for a very long time it was my favorite navigation app, but not anymore. Maps are outdated! Please update the map in Northern Virginia area I-495 and I-66 connector is completely changed! Please, make me love your app again!
  • No funciona 1/5

    By frank fernando
    Se cierra a los 10 segundos de abrir la App
  • Needs to show which side of the street your destination is. 3/5

    By Poopie738392
    This app needs to clarify if your destination will be on the right or left hand side, completely insane a mapping app doesn’t do this.
  • Is it just me? 1/5

    By Not Ok Computer
    Every time I try to use this app, it starts to ask me irrelevant questions in the middle of my trip. It wants to know if I rideshare. It wants to know if I'm going to work or not and those are just a few of the questions that asks in the middle of a trip . I may not be that great with technology but I have never successfully completed a trip with this app. I have an iPhone 11 promax it was three years old last November . Seems like other people are able to use it maybe it's just me? If Waze wants this information, why doesn't it ask me before I start out on a trip that I can't be late for? Absolute nightmare. i'd also like to add that it's incredibly dangerous to be playing with an app while one is driving. The accident rate has gone up 300% in New York State since the pandemic. People are driving like they're crazy and I think maybe they are. This app is dangerous.
  • What’s happening??? 2/5

    By RobertaHarwood
    Have used Waze for several years and dealt with the normal bugs and kinks…. But as of late it has been taking me on a long out of way route when there are quicker routes, AND it took me down a one lane dirt road in back woods AL. and Ms. I switch over to google or apple for more reliable directions from Here on out
  • New Update Stinks! 1/5

    The latest update of Waze is the WORST!
  • Lost its magic 2/5

    By Bikes rule
    Waze has really lost what it originally did well, which was route around traffic in almost real-time. Last few times I used it has sent right into traffic jams, and never updated with a better and obvious alternative route, and the ETA predictions are wildly in accurate also. Something must be broken at Waze. I almost deleted my account and removed the app since it’s no longer what I expect when I used it. So irritating it’s. It working anymore!
  • Bad 1/5

    By goodsamarthan
    Very bad. It used to be good but now it doesn’t even detect the closed roads. It gives only one option. I get stuck in the traffic so many times when I follow the route the app chose
  • Dangerous and Inaccurate 1/5

    By Fletchissimo
    Reroutes traffic in dangerous and incorrect ways. Promotes speeding and reckless driving in residential neighborhoods. Further distracts drivers with advertising.
  • Needs work 3/5

    By Beth - #1 Fan!
    I love Waze and have been using it for a long time. But suddenly I can no longer get sound no matter what I do. I can barely hear alerts when I’m connected to a third party app like iTunes but not at all otherwise. Very disheartening!
  • Needs improvement for Bluetooth 3/5

    By Slotaddict6789
    I spent days trying to get Waze to provide directions but couldn’t hear anything on my iPhone. I finally had to use another App for my trip. After much frustration I found that the Waze directions cannot be heard when Bluetooth is on. I wear a watch that communicates with my phone via Bluetooth and in order to use Waze I must give up notifications on my watch.
  • Love at first drive 5/5

    By KKel
    I have been using Waze for several years. A couple of suggestions- - 1. Put an icon on the map, or routes tab to easier choose “avoid freeway”. Having to navigate to that while trying to travel is too clunky. 2. Allow a weather maps overlay. It’d be awesome to see the weather on a particular route, especially when bad weather is around. 3. BRING BACK SEE FRIENDS! I do NOT want to connect Waze to Facebook in order to see where my family is. I really don’t care about my FB friends location. Thank you!
  • App itself is not user friendly 2/5

    By craigjr.
    As a passenger you can’t submit road closures unless you’re actually on the road… but not being able to be on the road how can I submit that road closure?
  • Go with something else 1/5

    By Jumpfor939
    Took us through a washed out farm road and because of that we damaged our car. It switches your route every five minutes and while I get what they're trying to do it is just inconvenient and annoying. The app seems to not be able to differentiate between viable roads and hiking trails. Complete garbage and will be switching to Apple.
  • Cameo voices 2/5

    By Eijh
    When there’s a new voice available it pretty much forces you to change to the new voice. Super annoying as it makes alerts and navigation difficult to process. It’s basically a road hazard. It would be helpful if it was easier to change the voice back. Better yet stop forcing it on users.
  • Not an accurate app/ plus too many ads plus it gives you teach a quick 2/5

    By Rev Jude
    First of all, you still love this app had it for a long time though lately it’s going downhill. I will tell you why I am giving this a two star is because I get way too many ads on the app as I’m driving when I’m trying to look for my location. Every time I stop at a light I get it add instead of where I’m supposed to go. Also, it does not give you enough warning ahead of time so when you’re supposed to make the turn, you’re supposed to get to the direction I found that is very dangerous. Also, I have found out that this app is not always accurate. It takes me to the wrong location. I do prefer an app as a GPS that I can depend on that gives me enough warning also gives you weather alerts, and also less on the ads. I do understand it’s free yet when you’re trying to depend on it. To get you to the location you need to get to I get tired of seeing the ads on the app every time I stop. I am also tired of the way to alert. You comes up way too quick and that needs to stop. It does not give you ample time to drive safely especially the way they drive and now it’s very dangerous. This app needs to change. I’m gonna look into finding another GPS app unless I see some good changes in this app. I will change my rating of this app once these bugs are fixed. I’m also tired of getting a lot because this app is inaccurate.
