Waze is trash!!! 1/5
By Apple EarBuds Blow!
Was in Oregon and it rerouted me to take
a ferry and then put me on I-5 in construction so a 45 min trip turned into an hour and a half. Thanks Waze you are hot garbage!
Smart Avoid Tolls / Shortcut Feature Request 3/5
I use Waze on my daily commute to tell me the best route to and from work. There is one toll I cannot avoid otherwise it doubles the length of my journey. However there is a second toll I can easily avoid and lose only a minute or two (on an hour long trip).
Can you please add an option to quickly toggle the avoid tolls feature on and off without having to go into the settings menu?
I need avoid tolls on so that Waze routes me over the necessary toll, but then I have to turn it off so that Waze avoids the unnecessary one.
Perhaps there should be some kind of logic or feature for a 'smart avoid tolls' that says: avoid tolls if time saved is less than X number of minutes or X percent of the journey'
Otherwise I'd give 5 stars
Thank you in advance.

Better than most other nav apps 3/5
Could be easily improved by a couple of simple fixes:
1. (Let me) change the default “routes” view to map instead of list. I can’t read a list while I’m driving, but I can glance at a map. You guys should know that.
2. Let me store more than one “home” address and more than one “work” address. Better yet, just give me a big button for a nice easy to use 10-item “go now” list. Don’t make me click through six “Here? Now?” options before you just start navigating.
3. (minor) Don’t choose a “mood” for me and don’t make me choose one. Give me a “none” option.
Better than Google Maps! 5/5
This app is ran by the users. Users can send out warnings to other app users of an accident, police, or traffic to avoid. You can get creative and use other voices to help you navigate.. keep in mind the special voices don’t use street names. And you can even listen to music while you are commuting! Google Maps does nothing like this! Best app ever!
Only good for cops 1/5
Always shows me an initially faster route that ends up being slower than google maps. Unreliable and a waste of battery.
Doesn’t give proper directions. 2/5
The app only tells me the area in which my location is in. I literally drove in circles trying to find my destinations and the app wanted me to go on the highway when the destination was right next to me and I had passed it several times.
The app seems to be good for police and other things but as far as directions are concerned it is trash.
Not reliable 1/5
I went to use this App on June 19th driving 12AM from JFK Airport to Philadelphia and it kept giving “oops sorry network is down” I ended up having to use Google maps. Today is July 17 and I wanted to add a hotel in MD I’m going to on Sat July 20 to look at the directions in case I have the same problem and it has been “ updating the Map” for a 1/2 hour now.
Audio issues 3/5
Recent up date causes audio to cut when switching between the app. Music app audio and Waze audio is effected.
Needs to be fixed 1/5
Have been getting oh no problems when I try to plan a drive. It’s been happening more and more now
Not connecting 1/5
Never had problem but today when traveling up east coast with my kids
Big let down. Not connecting to server
Great -1 5/5
Always on when I’m driving.
1. Needs to warn a little sooner on lane change so you have time to get over!
2. Quit anticipating my destination, if I need directions, let me program it myself!
Routing Server Timeouts!!!! 1/5
I don’t know what happened with Waze recently but now I get timeout messages rendering this app useless for driving directions.
Only one improvement needed 4/5
Allow the participants to specify an address. This often tells us to pickup/dropoff people at freeway on/off ramps or dangerous intersections. Also, it may tell you to drive a block to meet someone who works in the same building as you when you could just easily meet at the building exit.
Used to be good. Not since Google bought it. 1/5
Hope you don’t need to travel over 200 miles. Waze is worthless for this.
Glitchy and inconsistent 1/5
By The One And Only Red
Man, I used to preach Waze to friends and strangers alike. Within the last 3 months, however, it has gone to sh*^. It can’t find the gps signal half the time, has a delay that causes me to miss turns, and I still can’t sign into my account via Facebook. I’m done with you Waze. Get your sh*^ figured out!
Not functioning properly 1/5
Not sure if anyone else has been having issues, but over the last month I am consistently getting Routing Server Timeout errors all over the Northeast (Boston and NYC in particular). Very frustrating as I’ve used Waze for over 5 years and have rarely had issues. This is everyday now.
Carpooling is fun! 5/5
I wish that I had a chance to carpool with more people but it’s a hassle to get more than one rider currently.
I love Waze and love how easy it is to use with every feature except the carpooling with multiple people part, the rest is gold!
Poor navigation 1/5
Such a poor navigation, if I could give it 0 stars I gladly would! Had it once got mad how poorly worked and ended up deleting. After couple of months download it again in hope of better performance and boy I was wrong. I really don’t know how this app has such a review. So many times happen that the road was closed didn’t even show it and ended up leading me the longest possible way. Most of the times “looses the voice” not even pointing where to go. Just so frustrating thing to deal with especially when you need to stop on side of the highway to turn it off and look for another app to help you.
Great app 5/5
So much potential 2/5
This would easily be the best GPS app if it weren’t for one critical problem...it doesn’t work when I need it the most. I constantly get “Error calculating route” and “Searching for network” messages, that it makes it completely unreliable. Who wants to sit in a parking lot fiddling with a GPS app for 20 minutes waiting for it to work?!
The GOAT of GPS 4/5
Love the app. It shows me all the hazards on the road nice and early and makes directions pretty clear. I will say that the auto navigation feature is REALLY annoying. I use the app for alerts many times and it's a special kind of irritating when GPS decides to tell me where I'm going. I just want an option to turn it off in settings. It's distracting and interrupts music. Also, Apple Music integration would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve used this app before in the past with no issues, but the last few times I’ve used it for the beginning of a trip and it has worked just fine. When I go to use it on the return trip it refuses to load and crashes. I stopped using due to this problem.
The greatest app in the history of mankind 5/5
Before I start the ignition I start Waze - always. What a fantastic concept - humanity helping each other defend themselves against greedy municipalities who want nothing more than to enrich their coffers with your hard earned money. Thank you Google for such an amazing service!
I love this app! When you click on a restaurant or a store it shows ads like for a sale! There are even fun stuff like changing your Waze and you can use a cookie 🍪 monster voice too! Thank you 😊 for 👧🏼 making this app!🧡💛❤️💙💜❤️❣️💙💜❤️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️❣️
It gone downhill 1/5
Waze used to be great but recently it gone downhill.
1. You type a location but directs you home instead.
2. Brings you to dangerous routes.
3. Renavigates slow.
4. After a few minutes you notice its not ON anymore.
Not happy lately 1/5
In the last few months I can't even count how many times I've been sitting in traffic and waze says it's all clear. I’m currently sitting in traffic for 10 minutes and waze says it’s wide open. Waze was my go to for traffic but now I'm going to have to find another traffic app.
Love this app!
Bad algorithm for navigating DC streets 3/5
Bad algorithm for navigating DC streets. Zig zags you and takes you very inefficient and less safe routes to navigate traffic
Something bad happened 2/5
One. It always says in speeding. Two. Every time I turn it on in the car, it immediately sets my destination to home and starts navigation. It's really annoying. Please fix this issue.
Solid app needing innovation 3/5
Falling behind other leading nav apps. Needs to include lane guidance and vehicle details to enable height restricted routes (RVs, travel trailers, semis).
Not working like it used to 1/5
By joy old ipod
I used to love this app however in recent months, it’s harmful rather then useful! The app does not update very well and often is a step behind. Now I am using google maps and it is fast, where as waze is a step too late- ultimately putting me in danger and late!
Good but very slow application 3/5
Need to improve the speed
Easy and convenient 5/5
By Malik Bharadwaj
You can send and invite and have option to accept or decline a ride, which is good when compared to scoop which randomly assigns rides..
How many years has it been? 3/5
And you still have chosen to ignore the most pressing, EASIEST TO FIX issues because I guess you're too focused on Google. Used to vouch the hell out of Waze and now it's kind of an embarrassment that I did. FIX YOUR APP! HOW MANY YEARS HAS IT BEEN?!
My Review Of Waze 5/5
By Say Whaaaaaaaat
Lots of great information directions and a good good thing to have on my phone.🇺🇸😎🌴🇺🇸
There's just no alternative 5/5
Even though it's owned by Google is still much more precise than Google maps at the moment. At the local market (Israel) it is better in resolving addresses.
Text too small! 3/5
Bring back a reasonable font-size in the next turn box in the upper left corner, it’s way too small after the last update! Also missing the ability to tap this box to see all the next turns. Otherwise Wayz continues to be a great app!
Great idea, needs some work 3/5
I am glad that Waze is helping connect commuters through the app.
Now if it could sort out letting drivers take more than one rider, that would be great! As a driver, I’d like to override that and accept another rider—and get paid for it—if the app won’t arrange it for me.
I’d also like Waze to fix the location problem. It keeps telling me to pick up or drop off riders on busy highways or on exit ramps. I’m pretty sure that’s illegal. It needs an easier way to change or override pick up and drop off points.
Great but have suggestions 5/5
When it tells me to turn it doesn't say the name of the road to turn on. It show it in the screen but if I can't look at the screen that's the whole point of having the voice telling you the directions. And it needs to ”say it” a bit sooner than it does.... I'm already turning and ”Nathan” is saying turn right. Those are the only improvements I would like to see at this point. Other than that I love this app. I'm on the road so often and always in the heaviest traffic times that Waze is my ”co-pilot”!
Better than Okay, But... 4/5
This is a great app. I appreciate the real time data, but a couple issues I’ve run into:
1. Searching for a gas station, or restaurant en route always seems to display ones that are hundreds of miles down the road, not what’s closest to me, which means I have to switch to Google Maps to find anything nearby.
2. It doesn’t allow any onboard music app to play through it? Really? Not even Apple Music? Just a minor convenience issue, but strange.
Please add popup notifications (like google maps) to show directions when using other apps.
Allow me to "fix my position" when i am next to the road the app says I'm on. This happens when 2 roads are close to each other or when there is a road above (overpass).
Great app 5/5
Very smart way to travel
By sheryl haas
Ease always gives me the correct directions.
No Apple Music support. 3/5
I love using the Waze app and what it offers. I use it fairly regularly for my work since I drive a lot out of town and also listen to my personal music all the time while doing so. Unfortunately, while the Waze app does allow for access to several different music streaming apps while using the Waze app for navigation, a very commonly used one for iOS devices, Apple Music, which I solely use, isn’t accessible while navigating in the Waze app. I have to always change my screen to my Apple Music app and it’s frustrating since it’s dangerous for me to have to do so quite often while trying to pay attention to the road and traffic while also not getting in trouble with law enforcement if I’m seen doing so at the wrong place and time. Please update the app to allow for access to Apple Music while using the Waze app for navigation.
Doesn’t work most of the time 1/5
So frustrating to try & use this app and it doesn’t work most of the time. Switching back to Google maps that can at least offer consistency when I travel and not give me “uh-oh” errors almost daily.
Wrong Direction most of the time 3/5
Wrong direction with a time around the orange county area south orange county
Way better than Google Maps! 5/5
Predicting heavy traffic and providing alternatives routes with revised ETA is fantastic!! Love Waze!!
Awesome app! 5/5
The app is awesome to use! I had helped me countless times only wish you could use amazon music with it.
