I like the app 4/5
I have used Waze for years. I find it functional and helpful. I am curious as to why I can no longer use it in my Lincoln. It used to plug in and work seamlessly. Otherwise a great app.
Turn offs on its own 2/5
I started my drive with waze on and halfway through it stopped navigating on its own. I didn’t realize and kept driving straight…. Happened a few time after that.
Bad Routing 1/5
Every time I use waze it does not calibrate properly and uses a ridiculous route. Every. Single. Time. You google maps if you want the fastest route
Worthless app 1/5
You are smoking dust if you believe this to be the superior navigation app. Why are you throwing advertisements at me while I’m trying to look at my phone and drive on the interstate? I can’t see the map because a glazed donut is on my screen. This is dangerous and smells of greed. You’re already milking me for data. My final gripe is with the user interface itself. It is cluttered and the color scheme is distasteful. I could go on about the annoying cop notifications and other bits, but I’ll leave your here. I gave the app a try today after I previously deleted it due to a negative experience. Once again, Waze failed me. I will continue to use Apple maps. A clean, user friendly, and ad free experience.
A little buggy but good info 3/5
App causes the phone to run pretty hot.
A lot of little things such as app display on the warns of railroad crossing but the warning stays until you cx it. That’s annoying.
Also, there is no way to select another route on the car’s drive display nor is there a way to cx the navigation guidance. I should not need to have to pick up my phone and thumb through it and have to find Waze and cx the navigation.
Trying the different voices on the phone app doesn’t work. You can select a different voice but not preview. The voices so far are all annoying. How about create one that reads it without exaggeration?
App has need features but it gets a little overwhelming occasionally. Also is it really necessary to show all the McDonalds on the route?
Not worth the hassle… 2/5
Live in LA and have used this app frequently, but it’s not worth all the crazy routes to save 1 minute in traffic. Apple Maps is good enough.
I’d rather drive on a straight freeway than go through random streets so I can get there 1 minute early. I have also noticed it sometimes takes me longer with waze because of all the traffic lights.
So many issues 1/5
Wow totally steered us wrong and I have been trying for 20 minutes to try to notify them if map issue and it seems impossible. Our ramp was closed in both directions and no way to report it. (I-5 at Harris Ranch )
I miss the Apple Watch notifications! 5/5
That is all.
Can’t login or create account 1/5
App doesn’t work.
App link 2/5
Used it all the time in my F150 until they discontinued Applnk support.
Where’s my map???? 3/5
I’ve used Waze for over a year and always have seen the map of my route. Used it for the first time in a while a few days ago and the map has disappeared and all I see is the turn by turn. I reloaded the app as suggested when I googled about no map. Please fix it!
Always double check while you are en route that the app has the correct location. Sometimes it will bring you to the place you want to go, but in the wrong city, or the wrong location in the right city. For some reason, even if you select the correct place, it will bring up directions for another.
Almost perfect 4/5
The only thing that would make this perfect is if it could connect to my watch. I usually use Apple Maps because it notifies me through my watch.
Oh waze 1/5
By spajos 2055
As one of the reviewer said if you want a way around a traffic jam or heavily traffic area don't think about waze. Use something else. With traffic time shows 8 mins delay trust waze ended up 25 mins late to work. Good job guys.
Where’s the map? 1/5
For weeks now I can’t get to the map. Even when I click route overview nothing shows up. What happened? Used to like this app now it’s annoying. Deleted it.
Best of the Best 5/5
This is the future, and this app exceeds my expectations!!!
After years of loving Waze, I finally had to make the switch to Apple Maps. The app literally became unusable. It constantly has issues connecting to GPS. Just about every time I try to use it I get the “something went wrong” error message, or it can’t calculate my route for some reason. Forget trying to use this if you are in any kind of hurry. It’s just infuriating to use anymore. Super disappointed in what a piece of junk this turned into
Fix please ASAP! 3/5
It would be really nice and EXTREMELY helpful if under 'Alerts & Reports', 'Reports'. You gave us the option back for allowing us to have traffic jams 'Alert while driving' rather than just show on map. Be much more useful and handy to be able to turn this feature on.
OGS off 3/5
Works great most of the time but plenty of times it has me at a location that I’m longer in anymore. When I put a location in it’ll have me as I was still at my last location miles away. Frustrating when I need the GPS the guide me right away takes a few time to force close to locate me even with my Wifi off.
Dangerous Interface Errors! 2/5
Make no mistake, dynamic zoom is in full error mode. It zooms out to see just map icons and no route. In haste you now must zoom in and out repeatedly. I literally can not use it for anything but the initial route plan. While trying to see an upcoming juncture, the map is spinning in and out drastically.
I want North Up (achieved) and I want no dynamic zooming please.
Slow update 1/5
Literally took me off the freeway as traffic cleared up to put me in more traffic & a long convoluted way just to get to work. If ppl don’t update how traffic or things are you won’t get the quickest route. Usually like the app but that stupid routing made me never want to use the app again. Seems unreliable
Need to hide search and menu. 3/5
4.75 half the display is menu bar and search bar. Can’t see anything in landscape mode which I have to use because of car dash design.
No longer works with my F-150. Truly hope this is fixed but until then cannot recommend.
I am not seeing my alerts 2/5
Suddenly my app does NOT show the alerts.
Not reliable as used to be. 2/5
I had to delete it 7 different times to reset it. I had already made my setting selections but it would keep asking me. I would go to settings and reselect but that never worked had to keep deleting. I finally figured out how not to have to delete. I’m not downloading it anymore!
From First to Worst in One Update 1/5
I used to LOVE Waze. I drive for my job, and it was the best for many years. I gave it a 5 Star review a few years back. Then some genius developers decided that it needed “tweaking”. Whoever the developers are, they ruined a great thing. Now instead of a simple, intuitive menu that can be operated with minimal time & focus - you get this incessant pop-up that you can’t clear without shutting it down & re-opening. It happens when your already driving so that makes it dangerous. Then there’s the stupid MyWaze/Carpool bar at the bottom that requires you to jump through 3 different screens to get back to the map. Ridiculous! Stupid! Ruined it!
Do yourselves and the Waze community a big favor & hit the reset button to the earlier version. It wasn’t broke, so didn’t need “fixing”. 🙄
Works well 5/5
Used it about 2k miles in a couple of months and it works as advertised. No complaints . My I-phone is plugged in the car so I can hear it warn me so battery isn’t an issue. A lot of users on my highways so it’s updated all the time. Good features glad I found this application
Great App! 5/5
It’s a great GPS that I prefer over others… very informative… only thing that is wish it had was mile markers & a label showing the road you are on.
Not worth it. 1/5
It drains my battery so much everytime I use it. Constantly loses gps & asks me to proceed to route. Freezes my phone while using the app.
Crashes in middle of route all the time 😣 not safe. Yes, I have the most up to date version.
Pretty good, could be better 4/5
Please add stop light and stop sign icons along path of street especially helpful for knowing when a turn is at a stop light or stop sign
Takes forever to load location 1/5
I wanted to like waze but it takes FOREVER to load directions when I type in a destination address! Even when I have full service, sometimes it says it ‘sorry try again.’ Waze needs to fix whatever causes that because Google maps loads my destination in 2.5 seconds.
Love that App 5/5
Thank you so much. 😁❤️
Loved until this update 1/5
It no longer works in my ‘16 Ford Expedition with Sync 3. Shouldn’t have stopped the SDL format. Pretty crappy.
INCONVENIENT, ANNOYING, FRUSTRATING 1/5
the app hasn’t even been detecting traffic, nevertheless avoiding it, for the past few months now.
the maps often can’t detect your precise location on the road therefore causing a significant delay for reroutes/adjustments on your route. manually exiting the trip & starting a new trip to the exact same destination is MINUTES faster than the apps current adjustment period.
FIGURE IT OUT ASAP!!!
Oh how I used to love thee… 2/5
You were great, steadfast and loyal, and reliable- I knew I could count on you. Until some update happened and now this trust is broken along with this app. Why can’t you stay connected to my GPS?? I have a great phone. Keep everything updated. Have uninstalled then reinstalled. GPS works great in other map apps. This is a WAZE problem!!!!! Please fix!
Wastes time instead of saving time 2/5
By alianna gigi
This app would be great if it weren’t for the constant exit jumping. This app will take you 15 minutes out of your way just to shave 2 minutes off of your ETA. The alternate routes never save time and the app often navigates you to heavy traffic. The map also takes too long to re-center, so if you make a turn you’re left hanging without directions for 30-60 seconds. I used to love this app but I’ve been inconvenienced too many times.
“sleep mode?” 3/5
By d-dub in tx
What is this crappy new sleep mode? Total waste of time.
My Waze search bar takes up 1/3 of screen 2/5
Can’t give this latest update more than 2 stars as long as the My Waze search bar takes up 1/3 of the screen while in landscape mode. Who at Waze thought/still thinks this is a good idea?! And to say it will auto-disappear over time is not an acceptable solution. Very poor design. Give us the option to hide this bar and my score will improve.
More accessible 4/5
By the mandes
Wishes it would access to iwatch
Worst traffic app EVER! 1/5
Takes you on these side misadventures through unfamiliar and potentially dangerous areas. Use Maps or Google Maps.
Time Zone Change! 5/5
App doesn’t account for the time zone change with estimated arrival or planning trips. This would be a simple (and great!) update.
By NY batman
Here I am driving from NY to Florida. I get onto 95 thinking great the only reason I’m using this app is for the user base. Warnings of Police and traffic etc and then it takes me off. I’m driving so i assume something is up ahead and listen to get off the exit. This brings me to a Toll then it leads me into a circle to the same toll (paying both ways) to bring me right back onto 95. I have not been so annoyed in a long time. Not only did it waist my time but made me pay 2 tolls
Bad speedometer 2/5
By Steve 8178
The MPH when I am traveling at 75 shows 88 in the app. It’s a new 5G phone.
Spoken directions = missed turns. 2/5
Keeping eyes on the road relying on the app to announce directions is lagging horribly. If turn lanes where you go are long and fill up quickly this app is not for you, you won’t be alerted until you are passing by the cars in the turn lane.
Amazing maps app 5/5
Lots of customization, easy to navigate the menus, great to use for Apple carplay, and it’s really really good for avoiding traffic
Waze no longer supports SDL 1/5
According to Waze.com: “As of July 2021, Waze no longer supports SmartDeviceLink. If you encounter issues with this system, please reach out to your device manufacturer or car dealership for assistance.” Thanks a lot Waze for not telling us you were going to do this. You have p***ed off a lot of Ford Sync 3 drivers.
Now it’s terrible 1/5
By RiMi in Clebee
Waze used to be great but now it unusable. No maps. Associates addresses with the wrong city. The on line fixed don’t work. I’ve deleted and redownloaded and get the same issues.
