Waze Navigation & Live Traffic app reviews

  • Ads ruined the app 3/5

    By A.RoodAwakening
    I don’t understand why everyone gushes over Waze. Yes, it’s a useful app but the ads ruined it. I moved on and I suggest you do the same.
  • Unwanted carpool screen still hides map 1/5

    By huedaman
    App update still has the carpool trap button that obliterates currently displayed driving directions when accidentally touched. WHY? The damned app complains when you try to do something that might actually be useful when moving, but is totally OK to wipe out the entire screen if you accidentally touch the carpool button - you know - the button I never asked to be displayed. Why is the carpool button even active while the vehicle is in motion? How about a little consideration for safety? Please?
  • Is time for map to have more details better graphics 4/5

    By marama2
    The navigation overall is good but it could better It needs more graphics for better realistic look They need to incorporate junction view that way we can see the highway ext more realistic
  • Needed options 4/5

    By Happy hops 313
    Would love to see an option when selecting “object on the road, Pothole on road” to be able to select which lane it is on. Right, Middle, or Left Lanes. Can you make it an option to opt out of using HOV lanes , navigation always has me taking HOV lanes instead of just taking regular highway lanes. Please make it a option for vehicles to use HOV lanes.
  • Love it but it doesn’t seem to know EandW 4/5

    By Justanothercomplaint
    I love the overall app but the East and West are mixed up. When I’m going east it says west and vice versa. My jeep navigation is correct and my iPhone navigation is correct, and I don’t use true north. I’ve searched for an answer for this and there’s nothing I can find.
  • A MUST have app!!! 5/5

    By AnnaC1129
    I have to say that I literally rely on this app EVERYDAY! I use to use Google, but that would have me going in all kinds of directions. I rarely write reviews BUT this app is worth the time to write this one. I rely on it telling me approximately when I'll get there and I've also participated in letting other drivers know when there's accidents or hazzards (if I'm able to safely do so). Thanks 👍🏽🙌🏽👌🏽
  • Electric cars 1/5

    By fhydseyyvdwe
    Everything else is great but its unfair to list gas stations on the app and not have it set up so we can have a easier way finding charging stations along the trip be fair
  • Depends where you are 4/5

    By user names already taken
    Overall Waze is great but it really depends on where you’re trying to use it. I live in Northern California and occasionally it does make mistakes like directing me to go left when I actually need to go right and then the loop under the road I’m on to get on the highway or telling me that there is a road in front of me when in fact it is an undeveloped lot or mistakingly assigning addresses a block off but those are fairly rare. I have found however that when traveling in the state of New Mexico it commonly does not know where I am including one instance of misdirecting me for 36 miles before telling me I needed to turn around. I assume that the potency of user input is directly related to this and New Mexico simply may have far fewer users? I would recommend not trusting it in New Mexico but in California it’s been great overall.
  • Latest Update Big problem! voice recorder crashes waze 3/5

    By Ariangoleh
    so with latest update on my iphone 13 pro max whenever I record my voice to let the app figure out the address it crashes all the time
  • Has gotten worse over time 1/5

    By bk3030
    I use this app every day and it just keeps going downhill. You can’t just open it and use it, you have to close out a couple times then it works. Now it’s dong this weird thing where it doesn’t know where you are and throws you all over the place. Hopefully they fix it soon.
  • Trucking with Waze 5/5

    By willyjames23
    I am a truck driver and I have used several different navigational tools throughout my years. None have been as rewarding as WAZE. This app is excellent. I am on the road almost every day of the year and this app has saved me time & money in more WAZE than one. Time is money. This is a true statement. Every trucker out there will tell you the same thing. So it pays me to use WAZE. If WAZE was to add “truck routes” as an option it would not only be excellent, it would be exceptionally excellent. It would definitely be my #1 go to app every time I was in the drivers seat. I can all but guarantee the same would be true for tens of thousands of other truck drivers as well. There are other apps for truckers that include truck routing as an option. Other than that, comparing them to the WAZE app would be like driving a brand new semi equipped with a 13 speed Eaton Fuller transmission just cruising down the highway, to driving a beat up old 18 wheeler truck without a turbo with a 75,000lb load hanging on the fifth wheel trying to reach the summit of Colorado’s Vail Pass. Thank you WAZE for being a friend out on the road when I’m away from mine at home‼️
  • Needs better Electric Vehicle support 3/5

    By sc1891
    I love Waze, but recently bought an EV, and there is very little help with finding chargers along the way. Also, since you can only add one stop, you can’t manually enter the addresses of each chargers as a stop. Hopefully soon they will update.
  • No idea what this app is doing 2/5

    By heartsparks
    I just drove a local route from my house to grocery. The entire time Waze, which was programmed to take me from my house to the grocery, kept telling me to U-Turn and go the opposite way. It does this so much I decided to go back to google maps. I can't trust it to navigate me safely in a place I'm unfamiliar with. Stupid app can't even find trader joes that is two turns and three miles from the house. Useless. Unsafe. 0/10 do not recommend.
  • Sometimes 3/5

    By SunGodRAH
    there are times when you receive no notifications whatsoever, at that point you need to close down the app and restart. Pretty bad when you’re driving through an area that you’re unfamiliar with, as far as, cameras are concerned
  • Takes Too Long to Find GPS 2/5

    By JTSJ16
    This app would be a lot more useful if it didn’t take 10 minutes to locate the satellites. For the past 6 months or more it has no idea where I am. Think I’ll stick to Google Maps.
  • Waze takes you the least helpful way 2/5

    By Reader9725
    Waze decides to show me the longest route to my destinations. Yesterday was the last straw. It normally takes me 22 miles to get home, but it kept routing me to a 30 mile route, which took an additional 30 minutes. There were no accidents on my normal routes (I checked after I got home). No reasons for this. So bye waze
  • Why do I have to recenter the map every time I use this app 3/5

    By $tevedude
    Would love to give this app 5 stars but having to recenter the map every time I use it, pisses me off.
  • Inaccurate 1/5

    By Z_Sony
    Can someone tell me why my arrival time changed 20 different times on my way to my location??
  • GPS in CarPlay Broken 1/5

    By RJH11
    The latest app update broke CarPlay because the app can not track GPS. How could you issue this buggy update?
  • Why?! 1/5

    By clmc
    Dear God WHY?! Why keep messing with updating the layout if ain’t broke! The latest update isn’t working in terms of letting you look at traffic predictions departing from a location other than your current location. It was totally fine without this latest update-I just don’t understand this mentality of messing with things that work fine and have great reviews…it’s like they employ a bunch of people that have nothing left to do so they start changing things just for the sake of justifying their jobs.
  • What happened to Waze? 2/5

    By wgrrrl
    This used to be my go-to app. For years. It never works now, never loads locations, crashes all the time. This is despite me being up to date with OS and app versions. I feel like Google just bought Waze to ingest some IP and is now trying to dump it and force us to use its crappy other GPS app. So disappointed!!!
  • No exit option in app , dangerous 1/5

    By tttttcvjfsgj
    App works well but not being able to close a battery sapping gps app is crazy dangerous. This app should be removed.
  • Great app now terrible. 1/5

    By Quesboc2
    I used to love Waze and used it all the time. Yes it always had bugs but I dealt with it. But it’s just gotten progressively worse over time. It will do stupid things like having you make a left at a side street rather than a light thinking that saves you time, when in reality you’ll be sitting there longer bc you need the light to break up traffic. If you live near a bridge that goes up and down on a regular schedule the app will never incorporate that info and still send you there. People falsely report traffic which makes it’s real time data unhelpful. It’s a huge battery drain too. Google maps is so much better now I uninstalled this.
  • Terrible with road closures 1/5

    By Adamos88
    App is awful at announcing road closures.
  • Traffic problems no alternate routes 2/5

    By laye arrival
    We have enjoyed this app because it will take routes that avoid traffic problems and give us the quickest way to our destination. It did not do well for areas in Florida this time traveling from Tarpon Springs to Orlando. Terrible.
  • Great App 4/5

    By Mom2three2015
    This is the only GPS service I use and I love it! It would be great to have a notification or be able to report when a train is present. I gave 1 less star because in school commutes that would allow me to take a different route and not be stuck waiting.
  • Reporting of road closures? 1/5

    By MrjEdR
    Pretty sure it’s possible but where is it buried? Gonna have a few more people being directed into a closed road since it wasn’t an easy option to find while on the spot.
  • The sound is TOO loud even when I muted my phone 1/5

    By 12977543390
    The sound is TOO loud even when I muted my phone.
  • Amazing app, but some things i don’t like 4/5

    By WeslyJindaa
    The parking on waze is not accurate. it would show parking about 20 minutes away from where i wanted to head to. even tho there is a parking right in front of the building.
  • won’t let me shut the app??? 1/5

    By Delaneyard
    i used to like waze because it would give me different options when i was stuck in traffic. i am deleting this app partially because it no longer shows me those backroad options, but mainly because after i end my route and close the app, it continues to run. i have completely closed the app 10 times now, and after a few seconds the top of my screen shows that it’s navigating, and when i press it i am brought back to waze. nothing i do will close this app and it is ridiculously frustrating. there used to be an option for sleep mode which seemed to fix this, and they don’t have it anymore either? what is the point of using it anymore when i have apple maps or google maps? terrible navigation app that makes me uncomfortable due to constantly running and tracking my location. i even turned off background refresh and changed my location settings and nothing changed. at this point i’d give zero stars if i could because this is unacceptable.
  • New update 1/5

    By ayydrewsky
    Broke my app with carplay , crashes on each time I open
  • Glitch = 1 star 1/5

    By SMManager
    Takes you to a different location than the one you select frequently. You press one address and it registers as a different one than the one you selected
  • Women deserve better. 1/5

    By Toriambernikole
    You should be ashamed of yourselves for supporting and donating to the dehumanization of women in the United States of America. May your mothers and fathers forever be embarrassed and ashamed. Deleting this app.
  • Seems smart but isn’t 2/5

    By Darles Charwin
    Although it suggests the back roads it doesn’t avoid traffic well and times of arrival are not reliable.
  • Inaccurate Estimating Bad Predictions 2/5

    By äfgggg
    Horrible horrible horrible time prediction. I periodically use Apple Maps and Google Maps just to compare. Waze takes me on the routes that ends up requiring more time, while departure and arrival location and time are the same.
  • Never finds my gps 1/5

    By wazeblows
    App used to be good. Now it never knows my location and I can drive around Phoenix for 20 mins everyday and it might find me.
  • Fail 5/5

    By ItsLTvoice
    All the high reviews must come from paid sources. I’ve had an account & used it for years. All of a sudden I’m logged out & it can’t verify my email. If they want this to be a guest only app then they should just say so.
  • Hard pass 2/5

    By FixYourDamGames
    Good with letting you know whats on the road! Horrible time waster and gass waster. Will send you in a big loop just to go across the street 🤷🏻‍♂️
  • Waze 5/5

    By jake cameron1234
    Can you put Star Wars characters talking on gps please
  • Not showing house or building number 3/5

    By BatmanMiki
    I really like Waze but there is always one thing we don’t like for me is when you are arriving at the location and it doesn’t show you the house or any kind of building is frustrating especially for a food delivery driver like myself
  • برنامج اكثر من رائع او مفيد ❤️🌸 5/5

    By شي رائع جدا
  • Horrible. Was better when first created. 1/5

    By iFarva
    No longer showing my phone contacts on the app and now not showing my Facebook contacts. Went to start over and no longer able to log in to the app.
  • No voice 2/5

    By MiniReducto
    Just spent 30+ minutes trying to troubleshoot the directions not being spoken out loud, nothing worked. The best I was able to do was the voice becoming so low that I couldn’t hear it while driving. This is such old technology that this is unacceptable. Everything else was nice so one extra star.
  • Not reliable 1/5

    By GroundPoint
    Several trips and thousands miles has made it clear that Waze does not report police locations. On I-80, during daytime, only 2% of police locations were reported. Suggested navigation is dangerous. Waze tries to take unpaved routes through mountains with paved mountain pass options available. The speedometer constantly jumps up and down by 3mph which makes map zoom unstable. Reinstalling did not help.
  • Very buggy 2/5

    By shrudnd
    I’ve been using Waze for years and years. It used to be my go-to for navigation. Over the last year or so it has become incredibly buggy. It’s almost not useable anymore. I have to close and reopen it several times at the start of each trip it often freezes mid trip or will loose my location. I recommend using Apple Maps over this.
  • So cool for iranian,s 5/5

    By psy.n1
    اقا همینو بگیر عالیه😂
  • Used to be AWESOME 2/5

    By KPowe95
    In the early days this app was awesome. It would tour you around traffic. Now, it appears to work just like Google maps, and show the shortest routes regardless of traffic.
  • Weather 4/5

    By jjcibuc
    I love using the Waze app when we are traveling. It does have issues connecting sometimes. The display speed is to small and the speed bar colors I wish were more contrasting so you could see them better. The lite blue is caught and hard to see. It would be great is they could incorporate a weather app into Waze. We travel with our rv pulling a toad. Knowing the wind speed and wind gusts along the route would be really helpful. Ever if it was different colored flags indicating a range of wind speed along the route with adjustable notifications that the driver can input or other drivers could tap and say heavy wind gusts. When traveling in an rv knowing the wind speed wind direction and wind gusts is just as important or more important than knowing if there in as object on the road.
  • Carplay issues 2/5

    By Alejandrodamabianchi69
    there is no way to report the closure of a route from the screen of my car, I have to stop to one side of the route and disconnect the cell phone and report, but even so I have not been able to report two closures of the route because the app get froze when doing the report.
