Not as reliable as it used to be 2/5
Waze used to be a great navigation app, now it’s unreliable and barely works. The app always malfunctions when I’m in route and need it most.
What a Trash App! 1/5
I used this app today around 12-12:30 pm on I-285 West at Exit 27 I-400 N. The exit was closed for construction. It never rerouted me until I was staring at the cranes and construction crew. I can’t believe this never came up miles in advance. I know they didn’t just start construction at noon. Then I was stuck in a mountain of traffic with no end in sight. Was supposed to be at work at 12:30 pm. The app said ETA was 12:23 pm. Got there at 1 pm. Also, the site seems more like a fun game. When I’m in traffic I want something serious that I can focus on. Not nothing that looks like a Wi game. Before today, I never liked the app because of the child like appearance, but people keep bragging on it. I do like the cool sounds though. Don’t know what they mean but I like them.
In sorry, Doesn’t work in Chicago 2/5
By Patrick Karney
I’m sorry, don’t know how you have such a high rating. I’m a deliver driver and you cost me hours and a lot of pain and frustration, no connection, wrong maps and routes, in and out... I have Too iPhone and Best ATT internet unlimited package, not my end for sure. Deleting for Now. Holla at me if you fix I guess. Just too many choices to be this bad.
Overheats and drains battery 2/5
Great features but recently it causes my iPhone to overheat and drains my battery super fast. Was great but there are performance issues.
Needs more 3/5
It need more music player options like iTunes Player , Tidal, etc
I like the app very much and i also like how you guys added the feature to listen to music while driving as well. But i’d like to know if maybe in the future you guys can add youtube so we can listen to music there without having to close the application or somehow do it the way spotify is? That would be cool.
Uh oh, can’t calculate rating. Garbage app.
Superb App w/ a couple flaws 4/5
I’ll get the flaws out the way first
- Music Integration needs to be fixed. Everytime I use Spotify for a ride I have to reset the integration because it no longer shows what song is being played
-Random “Uh Oh Error Calculating Route” glitches when trying to run a route
I absolutely love Waze! Its a very interactive and rewarding app and keeps me updated on everything going on on the road. The app interface is excellent. The best part is reporting/spotting the police. I run this app with a RD.
Excellent app that could be perfect with a few fixes
Change of time zones 4/5
By Vernon Onno
Does not give the actual time of arrival when traveling from one time zone to another.
Loving life 5/5
By The guy hoo lives under ur bed
I love this app !!!!
It could be better 3/5
I recently got into Waze and I really wish I can add voices that is not my own, like cartoon characters or celebrities voices just to have fun with this app. Other than that it’s just like google maps or iPhone map nothing else but a rehash mapp with certain alerts. If you can add custom voices I rate this higher
Overheats, battery overuse, timeouts 1/5
Constantly overheats my iPhone X
Drains battery like crazy... maybe 1-2hrs for full battery
Any navigation that’s long, around 2+ hours freezes the server
Disappointed & dissatisfied 2/5
By Villas guy
Something has changed with this app. I used to get verbal narration of directions but now only have directions on the screen making it unsafe unless a passenger is able to read the directions to me as I drive. I had my iphone checked at the Apple store to be sure my settings were correct. The settings were ok. Did the app change?
Thanks Waze 5/5
By ali maroof
A helpful App !
Bring Rexona Back!!! 5/5
I love waze, just wish they would bring Rexona back as a voice- he was THE BEST.
Can’t pick up major construction in a highly populated area! Just bad. Put on a route through a major construction zone took me over 1 hr 45m to get home on a 20m drive! Never use again!
Good app just not that great with traffic updates.
Navigation not working... 2/5
Navigation is no longer working. The uh-oh error about the server timing outing keeping coming up.
Need more detailed Instructions and voices 4/5
We love using Waze! Would love it more if they told us which lane to be in and gave us more voice choices :-)
I’m driving! 5/5
By 2nd horn, PSO
Letting me write while driving!
I love Waze! 4/5
Just one suggestion. I need the option of displaying the estimated time of arrival in the time zone where my destination is. Today not realizing it didn’t automatically follow the destination time zone cost me valuable time. Thanks!
Brian from Placerville California 5/5
By Fabio Fuentes
I first used WAZE about two years ago to come back from Atlanta Georgia to Northern California. WAZE was spot on for the nearly 3000 mile trip. Far better than any of the other apps including Google maps.
Great app, let’s users know of objects on the road, traffic and stopped cars. Amazing that you can also input your own data.
New update adds music integration, just not Music app 4/5
The routes are still good but it has an annoying missing feature and still some bugs. The missing feature is local music integration, which NUMEROUS other apps have already perfected. I don't subscribe to an online music service, so the lack of being able to use my Music app to play songs is an annoying huge missing feature that has no excuse not being present.
Also I still have problems with it finding routes if I'm leaving a WiFi network. As I drive away from my home, it's on the very edge of my WiFi connectivity, so if I'm putting in my route to work, it errors out when the network state changes. It doesn't make the app unusable, but I may have to force quit it 2 times before it acquires the route.
Still is a great GPS, but these bugs and missing features prevent it from being the BEST GPS.
Great app 5/5
This app will get you anywhere
Please improve your knowledge about local adress
Can’t charge phone and use Waze at the same time... 3/5
Using iPhone XR, Waze does not use location services when plugged in with a cable. Makes it kinda useless.
Needs options like Google maps 3/5
By emily stump
Would like easier access to choosing a starting point besides current location and adding stops to see whole travel time
What about truck drivers!! 1/5
By big chef steve
This is great but what about truck routes and the like! I’d even pay 10 bucks for an app like that!!
Saved from ticket 5/5
On my way to Doctor’s office this AM every one is doing about 75 -80 in a 65 police notification appeared
Slowed down moved right to middle lane, car behind me didn’t got stopped abut .5 miles down I45 love it , use it everywhere even if I no were i am going.
Something is wrong 4/5
I love the app but lately something is wrong idk if it’s just my app doing it but it doesn’t stay on the address I put in while I’m driving it gives me the correct address then it starts telling me to turn left make a U turn and other things WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY that’s dangerous then it goes back to normal then does it again almost missed my exit a few times PLEASE FIX IT
Stop putting your banner on my music apps 1/5
I don’t use Waze, but their ad banner is all over my Pandora and Spotify. Stop it.
No real time updates 2/5
It will often tell me to take a certain route, saying it’s all clear. But once I’m in the middle of that route I see that its full gridlock. Leaving me stuck in traffic. The app should be able to read how long users are staying in traffic and auto update often traffic conditions without having to always have user input.
There is also the annoying inability of not being able to go back to where I saw a cop or accident and and put it on the map. Seems like you have to warn others of dangers only when you’re driving and only when you’re on top of that exact spot.
Trash, now 1/5
By S. Sanoski
Used to be wicked awesome, all of a sudden about 3-5 months ago it just started sending me to literally the middle of random streets that aren’t even the street of my address. I’ll click the address Waze suggests after I type in. It’ll be the same, legit just told me, “you’ve arrived to government street”. Who’s getting directions to the middle of a street?!? My hotel is like 3-4 miles from where it was supposed to take me, off of market st. The first time, ok, it’s a bug. This is like the 6-7th time and I’ve had multiple friends I’ve referred to the app tell me they have the same issue. Probably gonna delete for a few months and try back later. So disappointing!!!
Bad app don’t recommend 1/5
Terrible app needs to be deleted
Won’t update Drive Later feature 3/5
The app works well. The Drive Later feature does not work on a WiFi network or on my data plan. I’ve tried while I’ve been in my car and I’ve tried while on WiFi to get the time I needed to leave to arrive out of state for an appointment only to be left at the end with the message, “Uh-oh!....” I really needed this feature as I am leaving work for an appointment over 200 miles away and I needed to know how long I have between my work, my home and my destination. I love Waze but this feature should not be offered if it does not work.
Very good 5/5
If I choose not to go through tolls I should go through tolls 1/5
By I was late for work
This app is trash, I’m just gonna go back to google maps because at least that app will listen when you tell it not to go through tolls! I’m just fortunate that I had cash on me. It is also very distracting because it will have you confirm how heavy traffic is and various other things like red light cameras and police. I wanted to try it out because Spotify kept suggesting it, but no I know just to ignore it.
More Waze, All the Waze 5/5
Been a daily user for 3 years +
But lately I am becoming frustrated with my lack of potential routes. Why only 2 ways? Why not all the ways? I trust your algorithms, but I gotta factor other data that you don’t know about yet. Like which sushi spot is better on which route, and which one has crazy drivers...
Please show me more routes again. Forget about simplicity and minimal choice, and give me liberty
Location services 1/5
I get the bar saying that Waze is using my location even though I have it set to track me only when the app is open. A constant blue bar on top of my phone screen even when app is closed. FIX THIS.
FIX THIS APPLICATION 1/5
NOTHING LOADS!!!!!!!!!! NO GPS CONNECTION!!!!! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!!!!!!! The google maps works better than this!!!!
Not helpful 3/5
This app continues to take me from small traffic hiccups into large traffic jams. I thought the settings were to help you get places quicker without having to deal with traffic but this literally has done the opposite of that for weeks now.
By Janie S.
This is hands-down the best app I have used in my travels. Highly recommend!
On the rare occasion it works it’s great 2/5
By Fur Missile
The app rarely works. More often than not I get a “uh-oh something went wrong, please try again” notification when trying to do just about anything. App and operating system are up to date, doesn’t make a difference if I’m connected to WiFi or going off of cell service.
Never doubt Waze! 5/5
Never doubt waze it will get you there when it says it will!
Great app 5/5
By I am hard to please!
Especially useful when Ubering.
I totally agree with MomMatters. Beside all she mentions, Waze acts like a psychotic paranoid! If it sees 5-6 cars stoping at a red light, it acts like it is rush hour backup traffic. When home is only 6 miles away, it can drive me 10-12 miles for no justifiable reason.
It changes directions hundreds of times on the same trip. It gives the incorrect total distance, that changes even in town.
Waze cannot advise driver to make. U-turn. It will take you around the neighborhood or even across a bridge and back. U-turns are legal in many cities & states.
Yes, it changes the volume of my radio or music when it has no rights to do so. When you set it to only announce warnings, it sometimes raises the volume so much to a scary extent. Even if I muted it altogether, once in a while it will speak loudly for no reason.
Waze cannot change font size (within limits).
Waze cannot be reliable when you search for stores. When a store is just around the block, Waze can direct you to that same store but 20 miles away or in other cities in other states.
Even when we update the app, problems in Waze are not corrected. It seems Google is so fixated on pop up ads more than on fixing some flaws!
Gone downhill 1/5
For the past couple years I have been so impressed with Waze and its accuracy the for the last month it has went downhill fast
Passed me going in circles going miles out of my way not even close to being accurate
