by JAXY GOLDSMITH on 2020/06/01 17:58

How about fixing it for the Acura’s
WAZE NOW BREAKS CARPLAY RADIO
by ArthurOne on 2020/06/01 15:36
After installing IOS 13.5 and recent WAZE updates, WAZE audio notifications no longer work properly with CarPlay. Normally, WAZE lowers the volume of Sirius XM for directional info. Now it completely interrupts the Sirius audio. Please return the normal function ASAP! Thank you,
Update
by Priio on 2020/06/01 12:16
Can you guys update this to support Apple CarPlay to display waze on its home page pls
Crashing

Lately the app is crashing right in the middle of giving directions. iPhone 11
Speed cameras can’t send updates !!!

Speed cameras can’t send updates !!!
It’s been great for 6 years
by Pfleiss on 2020/05/31 18:06
I’ve been using this app for 6years and now I can’t stand it because it force closes all the time.
Retired
by Licnz2kll on 2020/05/31 16:48
Great app! I drive about 3000 miles a month and use it all the time. Waze to improve the app? Provide weather coverage along the route chosen. Suggest gas stations with cheap prices along the route. Highlight attractions/sightseeing/ historical stops of interest. I have a 3 star because after the last few updates, it will not show al erase routes when prompted. Frustrating when you are on a long trip and want to go a different route, you have to add a stop to make it work.
I have a hard time getting a display the darn that

Not working the last few weeks.
by 2manyappleprdts on 2020/05/31 05:59
I loved this app when I first installed it. Now the voice notifications don’t work and it constantly shows my phone calling in on Bluetooth. I have cleared my cache, uninstalled it and have the latest version on my iPhone. I am so disappointed because this app was so much better than my cars navigation. Please fix this!
Crashes
by upsetbc on 2020/05/31 00:01
Loved this until the last two weeks it keeps shutting off. No reason can’t use it now.
Messed up CarPlay
by Aflax288 on 2020/05/30 23:54
The latest update will freeze my music volume on Apple CarPlay. I can’t raise or lower the volume unless I make a call then hang up.
Once was great
by Btrky on 2020/05/30 22:51
I love using Waze, but lately the app does not alert to reload hazards. They appear in the screen, but no longer alert and say “vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead” or “police reported ahead”. Whatever changed, please fix it.
Distances wrong
by Cindy143 on 2020/05/30 20:37
Ever since the last update which I think was a week ago, the distances too upcoming turns are wrong. Please fix!
Somethigs went wrong after last update
by N!M4 on 2020/05/30 20:01
I think after the last update I couldn’t use it with 3G and LTE service provided by cell phone operator. it still works on wifi.
Developer Suggestion
by Wow this works legit on 2020/05/30 18:25
Require users to add their exact make and model, and have a image of that exact car as their cursor, which would be visible to all users Then introduce a messaging system with an inbox, so if I saw a red mustang with a headlight out, I could inbox him and let him know. This feature should also have an option to be disabled or enabled by the user in the case of harassment
Voice directions not working
by JohnE217 on 2020/05/30 17:49
Used to work great, but now the voice directions no longer work. I’ve tried switching voices, turning sound off and on again, restarting the iPhone, closing the app, etc. No luck. Makes the app useless.
Can’t see the map

Issues
by ridingthattrain on 2020/05/30 15:11
Most of the time it is great HOWEVER I have it set for “only when using” and it STAYS ON CONTINUOUSLY ! I have to go into the app ALL the time, change it to never, and then back to “only when using the app”
Great
by anti fraud on 2020/05/30 13:48
This app got me lost. And it told me to turn of a freeway where there was no of ramp.

It’s not working at alllllll Please fix
Horrible lately
by LSUfan67 on 2020/05/29 23:56
I have used Waze for a long time. The last few weeks it has had nothing but issues. I connect it with my phone through CarPlay. It will give one notification then no more the entire ride. It also causes the radio to stop playing with the first and only notification. PLEASE fix it. 🤦🏻‍♀️
Voice crash
by Sunyazdyshine on 2020/05/29 19:57
Voice stopped when phone locked Please fix it
Broken app
by alexanderwebster on 2020/05/29 18:58
New update, Waze will not rotate to landscape view.. doesn’t matter which side I turn the iPhone to including upside down.
No notifications when phone locked
by Typhanus on 2020/05/29 18:52
The app after the most recent update no longer gives notifications unless the phone is unlocked. It used to give background notifications when locked, and I haven’t seen a setting that would affect this. Please patch this issue!!
Used to be great
by Kbl1987 on 2020/05/29 18:40
This used to be a great app but my recent road trip will make me not use it again. While driving on busy highways where I needed my gps the most it constantly lost my location several times.
Time of arrival needs fixing
by GAM610 on 2020/05/29 18:23
Waze please update the time to leave for arrival at location it’s currently not accurate.
No Longer Works on 2020 Ford Explorer
by Cody927 on 2020/05/29 17:29
After updating to IOS 13.5 this app will no longer work on my 2020 Ford Explorer with Sync 3. I’ve tried uninstalling Waze, removing and reconnecting my IPhone to my Explorer and nothing has worked. Please FIX IT!!!
Waze
by Neciy@101 on 2020/05/29 16:57
My Waze is behind I can up on the state patrol and Waze didn’t say until after I passed it’s behind on street and exits. I use it when I’m on the interstate, I get so mad I just close it.
Great turned into a mess!!
by Protector 86 on 2020/05/29 13:25
Please FIX THE APP!!!. This was such a great app and now has so many bugs and it’s actually dangerous to drive relying on it. Bluetooth notifications are not coming through bluetooth devices anymore but from phone and it screws with my music. Notifications are also covering up important aspects of the map. Please stop over designing what was great. Thank you.
SLOW
by Ooollalaa on 2020/05/29 13:20
the app is incredibly slow and is unable to connect at times

Trash
by Brosmigo on 2020/05/29 13:05
Ever since google bought Waze they have messed this app up greatly so people will use their google maps. Sad how a big company can buy out the little guys to mess their perfect app up....it the world we live in though
No network connection
by girlishnegin on 2020/05/29 08:59
It doesn’t work and its about 1 week that its send me a notification when I’m opening the app “ no network connection try again later “ I dont know why!!!!
Ummmmmm wut
by brandon smtih gill on 2020/05/29 05:38
This was such a great app when it was first launched. It was so classy and super easy to understand but now it is so difficult to learn. When it says “Bug Fixes” it really means “let’s add more bugs” and the old Waze was so Beautiful 😍 but the new logo is like🤢🤮 please fix this stuff thx ☺️
No longer alerts
by MiDNiTe x SNaCK on 2020/05/29 03:44
Waze now will only notify alerts such as police or other hazards about 1/100th of the time. Stopped working properly about 2-3 weeks ago?? Doesn’t matter if I’m running it in CarPlay or not. Pretty worthless now.
Turn off location checking automatically!
by Photo-fiend on 2020/05/29 00:43
I love this app, but it keeps location services on, even when you have reached your destination and closed the app. At the top of your iPhone, you see the blue bar telling you it is still in use, (which is nice)..HOWEVER - , then u have to go to SETTINGS, find Waze & change the option to “never”, then wait for the blue bar to go away, then change it back to “While using the app”. Very time consuming & frustrating!!!!!
Road closures should be easier on the fly
by oneboyarmy on 2020/05/28 22:56
I don’t need the pop-up notifications for blasted railroad tracks. You have marked them on the map, that’s more than enough - especially in the areas where I live. What I do need is an easy way to tell Waze “NO” when I’m driving in an unfamiliar area and the road is closed. I don’t want some convoluted u-turn through a neighborhood to go back the way I just came because of a road closure.
App pretty useless. Slow and there is no sound now
by Acid998 on 2020/05/28 17:39
App getting slow to position and recommend route. Also where there are road blocks n other events on route u only know like a few hundred feet before. Used to be awesome but now juat getting bad Finally there is no sound while navigating even with the volume on max
Great if you like missing turns
by Natty1984x on 2020/05/28 17:38
The app often crashes when it’s in the background. You won’t know it either. Until you realize you drove way past your turn.
Sticks in car pool

Waze is crashing
by CustomerJeddy on 2020/05/27 23:49
Prior to now - May 2020, Waze has been my reliable goto app for Navigation, that belief is fast being eroded by the crashing game I’m experiencing right now! Please tweak the app! 🙏🏿
Broke Ford Sync Connection

Not working with CarPlay
by SkaterFh85 on 2020/05/27 21:02
No longer with CarPlay! The warnings don’t come up and if you go to another screen (ie music) you don’t hear the directions!!! Needs to be fixed!! Never had an issue until the latest update!
Was great
by Tankknight on 2020/05/27 20:44
No longer connects to my Ford ... ‘Waiting for Device’.
New update sound is messed up
by Empty Eye on 2020/05/27 20:02
I plug my phone and connect via USB/Dock Connector and it’s worked just fine until now. It stops my music playing and tells me about police/accidents and everything else through the phones speaker and sometimes doesn’t resume my music.
Worst navigation app
by scarfhero on 2020/05/26 23:17
Will take you around in a huge circle, instead of straight to your destination.
no voice directions when selected
by DK_TO on 2020/05/26 20:51
App is totally useless for voice. When you should hear “turn right” or “turn left” the voice in app is “and then.” And then, there’s nothing more.
Great app
by Anthonymhood on 2020/05/26 16:18
The app works great! I use it on my Apple car play, and was wondering if you plan to add support for the dashboard of Apple car play since Apple let’s us pick which app we want so see on our dashboard now?
Amazing - current version has issues with CarPlay
by Regis N on 2020/05/26 16:16

GEEAT APP!
by BigGoosy5 on 2020/05/26 15:52
My husband and I use Waze all the time. We love it but, it would be nice to get new mood icons. Also, when we search for things such as food, coffee, shopping, and so forth...it would be nice if it would only show us options in the direction we are going.

by jrap64322 on 2020/05/26 04:21
I use this app almost everyday and it is awesome. The way you can detect cops and share it with others is incredible. One bug I see is when i’m going somewhere, I click the direction and click go. Once it starts I click up to see each street and how far and the next street distance just shows how far you are on your own street. So you cannot see the distance of the next street.
4.62.2 is working fine using CarPlay
by Green Sub on 2020/05/26 02:54
4.62.2 is working fine using CarPlay on my iPhone 11, iOS 13.5, and 2019 Hyundai Kona. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is the inability for Auto Map Display to work correctly. It doesn’t work at all with the Kona headlights nor with sunup / sunset.

by DJ CHiNO on 2020/05/25 17:07
Great app but the new Update pauses my music. It should be a feature
Truly messed up now
by NanoDude on 2020/05/25 15:08
I don’t know Who sabotaged The Code for this app, but it’s the worst now. I’m sure the percentage of U-turns has increased exponentially. The instructions come way too early and I would highly recommend going with another GPS
No sound
by QNetSo on 2020/05/25 14:10
Sound is currently broken in so many ways. If i open the volume control the volume level bounces around on its own for a while. But no matter, the loudest setting you can barely hear in a quiet room with the volume all the way up. That is unless you connect a Bluetooth device, then the sound plays through my iPad speaker at a decent volume... of course that’s wrong too... Also don’t require me to create a google account to report a problem :)
No more speed cameras ?
by SimbaNY on 2020/05/25 12:46
I used to love this app but I’ve realized that we are no longer able to add red light and speed cameras ? Why would such a useful tool be taken off the app? I’m giving two star until this feature is added back!
Great app. But....
by Dormie77 on 2020/05/25 11:41
Waze really is a great driving companion app. What would make it complete is to be able to add additional specs for vehicle and towing such as height, weight and length. Then have Waze calculate the best routes with those criteria in mind. We have a large fifth wheel trailer and need to use a truckers gps app, but would rather just use Waze.
Need lane guidance
by dddddddddddd4532 on 2020/05/24 23:53
The Waze app developers seem to have abandoned innovation and are now just phoning it in for ad money. Looking at the screen and trying to figure out what lane to be in is so dangerous to do while driving. GPS systems have been doing this since it was invented, why not waze. Add lane guidance guys and start innovating again; the app has not had a serious upgrade for many years now.
App no longer has sounds on CarPlay
by Bailey1814 on 2020/05/24 23:42
Tried with two different iPhones. Sounds, including street names, alerts, and turn-by-turn directions. Google Maps and Apple Maps sounds work fine. Disappointed in this.
Used to be great

Wazetastic
by 01TDA on 2020/05/23 15:36
This app is fantastic and I’ve used it for over 5 yrs now. My only issue is that sometimes it takes you through subdivisions or off the route *** when I know you can go straight through. Not sure why, yet it still outweighs others!!!
Put Notifications Back On Top
by FL Storm on 2020/05/23 14:26
Put the notifications back on top of the screen, or at least give us the option to choose.
Alert confirmation needs updated
by Lrwp on 2020/05/23 13:12
When an alert pops up and asks you confirm if it’s still there, it’s asking too soon. It disappears before you can even get close enough to see when the view isn’t straight ahead. It should allow you to confirm/deny until you’re just past it.
Problem with the latest version!!

Update is horribl
by Sararyan44 on 2020/05/22 23:59
I love Waze but since this latest update it is terrible. The distance between turns is way off causing me to miss turns and the volume is now messed up. Please fix the distance issue.
Can’t us the a

Crashing App!
by ColbyMD on 2020/05/22 15:04

Messing with audio
by Aqikhaki on 2020/05/22 04:50
My music’s volume no longer adjusts when Waze is running on Apple car play
It looks like is in lockdown due the COVID-19
by Rudva on 2020/05/22 03:02
This apps is really good compared with Google and Maps (which is the worst). But it look like the quality is going down, lately too many wrongs routes, last second instructions, not viable routes to reach the destination and today... lost the GPS connection and not even restarting the smartphone and location feature makes it work.
Crashes often...
by xbsussh on 2020/05/21 22:54
It’s completely unacceptable for a navigation app to crash during a drive to say “uh oh. Cannot find route” Google maps works flawlessly, and saved me today in a directional standpoint when Waze had failed. Also, for the short time that it worked, the fuel stop function was completely useless. Only gave me options that were towards the end of my route. I wish I could give this zero stars...
Removing OK Waze is dangerous
by tomnevers on 2020/05/21 20:58
I have enjoyed using Waze for a couple of years. Recent updates have left me unable to help other drivers, though. I receive warnings about hazards, police, etc., which is great. But now that I have to touch my screen, I won’t be able to alert other drivers. This is because 1) it is dangerous to have to find the icons and select them 2) it is illegal in my state to do so. Also, the alert banner is now at the bottom of the screen, so I can’t see it very well. Lastly, if someone else is in the car with me and is able to respond ‘yes’ to an alert (meaning it is still relevant), the option goes away too fast and they can’t respond in time. Sometimes you can’t see the event or object until you are on top of it. And I really would like to helping others like they are helping me! I hope you consider these observations for future updates. Waze is really useful and could be even better.
It force quits now
by Miles Drake on 2020/05/21 20:42
Whenever I try to launch the app it force quits now won’t even open up has Spotify connectivity issues and the routes aren’t fast and efficient to beat the traffic it used to be amazing having this app driving through the Los Angeles streets the app isn’t what it once was.
Problems w/ Apple CarPlay
by makeup_gal on 2020/05/21 20:37
Overall useful and helpful app, but when I use it with Apple CarPlay the volume maxes out so low and it doesnt increase. So I cant use the app with playing my music on my phone🤦🏻‍♀️ If Im doing something wrong, please tell me!
No longer offers shortest routes
by larveys on 2020/05/21 17:00
I used to love this app as it consistently offered the fastest routes with least amount of traffic. However, over the last year or so, I have noticed it will direct me towards routes that are busier and not necessarily shorter. I think they would prefer that their users stay on the most trafficked routes that are rich with gas stations, restaurants, etc in order to satisfy their sponsors ($$$$). Bummer.
Recent Update Broken with SYNC 3
by Braxton M. on 2020/05/21 16:29
Normally, I love this app, but the latest update does not allow me to change my music volume. Instead, I can only change “Prompt Volume”. I’ve been forced to uninstall the app until this gets resolved.
Went crazy
by Carey35209 on 2020/05/21 16:10
I just deleted the glowing review I had put here before. I got an iPhone8 for Christmas last December (5 months ago) and out of the blue the battery was dying quickly for no reason. I checked the usage and found that Waze was eating up almost all of it even though I hadn’t been using the app lately. I withdrew access to my location and to my calendar and anything else, leaving it nothing I have control over. That didn’t change a thing, it kept eating up my battery anyway. So now it’s gone.
No longer uses Bluetooth
by Miss the Edit Cartoons on 2020/05/21 00:22
Latest update has taken away Bluetooth connection to my car. App says it is transmitting thru car speakers but it isn’t. It does, however, interrupt my music which IS operating on Bluetooth & I often have to restart music. Fix this, please!
Turn by turn voice guidance.
by Fahim Adnan on 2020/05/20 18:31
Yesterday I drove from NYC to Pittsburg and notice that turn by turn voice guidance was not working properly. The voice guidance system just said turn left or right but did not mention the streets/highway/exits. Which is really annoying. I guess it is a new bug. And also my fav guidance voice; English (UK) Amy was missing from the option.
Garbage routes
by MPM110989 on 2020/05/20 18:13
I have been a Waze user for years. I am perplexed by the routes it has been taking me recently. They make no sense and then the app has been struggling to keep up with the direction when I need to make turns and it tells me after the fact. Unfortunately deleting.
Daily Crashing App!!!
by FlaGirl13 on 2017/12/16 06:04
Funny enough, A cop friend of mine told me about WAZE! And normally, I LOVE your App, & have Used it DAILY for a couple of years or more, MAINLY to find the SHORTEST ROUTE TO WORK, & Later HOME, & of course to check Road Conditions. I’ve told many of my friends, & patients too, what a great, informative App, Waze is!! There were a few bugs w/the previous update; where the screen flips back to friends, or to types of hazards etc., as you’re driving down the road Trying to follow your GPS Map. But the Most RECENT UPDATE IS GARBAGE!!! Maybe it has TOO MUCH on it? When I open Waze, & try to pick my destination, it flashes a mssg that says “UH OH! YOU ATE NOT CONNECTED. CAN’T CALCULATE ROUTE! W/a green button to click that says OK..., then it crashes (goes black), or it immediately crashes as soon as you try to open the App, & then it just closes the App. UPDATE: We, (hubby & I), along w/many others), have NOT BEEN ABLE to USE WAZE for ONE WEEK Now, b/c it keeps crashing!!!!😳😤 I’ve had to resort back to Google Maps. PLEASE FIX! No-one has contacted me. Many of the suggestions are great, but I espec like the ones about enlarging the speedometer, & one touch reports! (For safer roads)! Once you’re used to Waze, (when it’s working), it’s hard to do w/out. I have REBOOTED my iPhone several times. I’ve now become dependent on your App, w/all of the traveling we do! PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks for all you do! 😃. Respectfully, FlaGirl13
Battery drain, several issues
by EmilyJumpsHorses on 2018/07/06 13:17
The battery drain when I use Waze is unreal. I was at 43%, opened Waze & drove for about 12 minutes, decided to add a stop. I looked at my screen and the low battery 20% alert was up!! All of my background apps were closed, and there was no reason for my battery to plummet that quickly. Sometimes my app won’t show my icon but shows the “shadow” of where it’s supposed to be. Another issue is that it doesn’t show all routes. I know a certain route isn’t normally the fastest, but I also know my city’s traffic patterns and it won’t show it. Also, I’m in the top 1%, but how do I know when I’m getting close to losing that prestige? How do I see if the population is catching up to me? Finally, the fact that it doesn’t tell you whether your destination is on the left or right is so irritating and basic that I’m shocked it’s not a feature. I wish there was a feature where you could customize which “hazards” to voice prompt. For example, I couldn’t care less about a car on the shoulder ahead, and it’s annoying to have my music interrupted by that stupid hazard alert. But I would want to know if there’s a pothole ahead, an object in the road, or a police reported ahead. Create a way to narrow down the voice prompts! Why do the other Waze avatar icons around me never move? Speaking of Waze “people” icons, please come out with more options!
Was GREAT....Now it doesn’t work 😖
by AshEBom on 2018/01/21 16:36
I had been using Waze for about a year and LOVED IT!! But since the most recent IOS update, it continually is “searching for GPS” and looking for language (I still speak English 😉). I went to my cellphone provider, then Apple, and logged off of Waze to see if the app would reset itself and be fixed. This didn’t work. I even did a total reset of my phone, and nothing worked on Waze and Google (who owns Waze). I then contacted Waze, but got nothing but constant/obvious automated answers back that stated things to do that I already started I HAD ALREADY DONE and listed in my email. This is upsetting since other competing GPS apps work on my phone, so it’s not anything on my end. After a couple of weeks, I did a web search to see if others had issues or could help me. Interestingly enough, I found out I am in good company, sadly. Please Waze/Google, it would be greatly appreciated if you could actually get this obvious bug fixed. Your app was wonderful, but I’m sadly happy to switch to another app to at least get me to places. No, the other apps don't have the accident, police, or other very helpful perks. I just can’t stand diving “approximately” or now the map keeps me at the beginning location and has no idea that I have already driven and arrived at my destination. Beyond frustrating. Again, please send out a fix! 🔨
Die-hard Wazer!!!
by Andrepimarlucatom on 2017/10/21 15:22
Update: Waze updates have been good and the reporting process is improved and there are less steps to get to the actual reporting - yay! When you fix the default address estimation from interstate (literally I get suggestions for MI addresses, and I live in Alexandria VA!). Previous: I've recommended this app to dozens of friends and helped many download it to their smartphones and set it up for them. I can't say however that I'm very happy about the latest version of Waze. The GUI is not what it should be, the # of improvements is about equivalent to the # of detriments. It's hard to cancel an instruction once entered, the screen going from side to side is not user friendly. And reporting hazards is STILL a 2-3 step process!!!! There should be the option for active wazers to have a "visible police" button, "car on shoulder" button "construction" button and/or various traffic buttons of our choosing on the map page that we can report as we go. Also, PLEASE STOP SEARCHING THE ENTIRE MAP OF THE USA WHEN I'M OBVIOUSLY SEARCHING FOR AN ADDRESS IN MY LOCAL VICINITY. That was an obvious upgrade improvement you guys should have included. I would give you 5 stars or 10 or 20 because I love your app - but these improvements really need to happen ASAP. Keep up he awesomeness Waze!! Plus your Customer svc and responsiveness is great too!
Most useful but some issues
by Smiledaydream on 2018/06/03 09:20
It is the most useful of the navigation apps because it uses the most sources for information and does a great job helping me navigate. Directions are given in a way to help locate the turn or offramp. Other apps often change suddenly into step-by-step directions or some form that I do not want to see. Waze stays consistent in the format of the split. Waze has a number of notifications about things in the road. These are good but also have weaknesses. It is hard to report that something was not accurate. At the point it is supposed to be there the option to indicate it was incorrect goes away. This option should remain for 2 to 400 feet after the symbol location. Most hazard reports are inaccurate. Most police reports are incorrect. This is frustrating because it such a good idea but the tool doesn’t really allow for good reporting. Stopped vehicle reports do not indicate in lane or side of road so they are usually pointless viewings of vehicles stopped somewhere having no affect on traffic. There is a great feature to go later on the time this feature cannot be used for some reason I will choose directions to the airport. Half the time I can choose go later and half the time for the same trip I cannot. I know the data is there. But for some reason the feature just vanishes. Make it easier to report.
Don’t Leave Home Without It
by Als2130 on 2018/12/07 12:33
This app has saved me so many times. I absolutely love it. I use it constantly, mainly because it alerts me to traffic and cops, but also because it has shown me shorter ways to places I go to all the time (and thought I knew the best route there). I only have two complaints. The map change suggestion feature is totally useless. There’s a road near me that’s a private lane and ends at one curve of an s-curve. Waze always tells me to use this road for 100 feet, then get back on the main road. No, the private lane ENDS at the main road! I’ve tried changing this a dozen times, and it never gets changed (once it was actually, but a week later it was back). I’ve learned to ignore it, but I feel sorry for tourists because they get confused (I can tell they’re using Waze when I’m behind them because they’ll slow down and sometimes stop, which is really annoying). My other complaint is that I can’t tell it to remember certain routes. From my house, there are two ways to the county road. They’re both the same distance and about the same driving time. The difference is that the one Waze always tells me to use is single lane partway, very narrow the rest of the way, and has a lot of hidden entrances and blind hills and curves. I’d much rather take the safer way. If Waze finds a way to fix these two things, I’d give it 5 stars
Better than the old CB days.
by Depdoc on 2018/12/27 15:26
Waze is a user based traffic information app. It does rely upon users to report traffic conditions, construction, accidents and police. As a user passes by a reported problem, he can say Thank You, indicating the condition exists, or No longer There, indicating it has been cleared. There are two things I’d like to see changed: 1) allow the time to respond to the condition to last longer. Sometimes, the actual condition is at a slightly different place due to the time lag between where the incident is and when it was actually reported. and 2) when reporting police, it would be nice to know if the police is moving or stationary. If moving, the radius for notification should be extended and the time to clearing shortened, as a moving car will not remain in its position very long. If stationary, then notification can remain as it currently is. If police is moving, it would also be nice to know which direction and then adjust notifications accordingly. Note these are suggestions and not complaints. This is a great app and a must have for any driver. It also has a pretty good navigation system. But if you select another route than it gives you, it is slow to recalculate and sometimes requires stopping the navigation and then restarting it to get the alternate route.
Good at knowing where traffic is AWFUL at getting around it
by LordLombardi on 2018/03/14 23:53
You wanna know where traffic is jammed? This app is wonderful for that. Want a route around? Avoid Waze. This app is useful for for ETA’s if you sync with your calendar, and to show you where traffic jams are. However, expect it to always take you through traffic jams. The most use I’ve gotten out of this app this app during traffic hours (aka the time you would most want to use this app) is zooming out to see the full map and then seeing myself how to get around the jam. Without fail, if I’m trying to get home from work, Waze will want me to take a Street that I know for a fact will be jammed. I decided to follow the directions twice thinking maybe Waze was smart than I am and knew something I didn’t. Both times I was backed up a solid mile before where Waze thought the real jam started it. And I’m talking I was in bumper to bumper traffic waiting for the light to turn 3 times before I got past a single block. Despite this, Waze insists this is the fastest route — it’s not. Waze also becomes unresponsive to traffic reports during peak hours it seems. You could report bumper to bumper traffic in a downtown street and Waze will only mark the small section where you are even if the jam stretches 10 minutes in front of you. You would think it would gather that you’re in a bad jam and find a different route, but it doesn’t. Your best bet is to zoom out the map, and try to find a better way yourself.
Great nav app... BUT
by DL1771007 on 2019/09/24 18:03
I’ve been using Waze for quite a while. However in one of the recent updates there are some problematic issues that need resolved. First and most important... waze now announces “hazard” ahead instead of announcing construction ahead, car stopped on road ahead, pot hole in road ahead... etc etc. because it only announced a “hazard”, one must now look at the phone to figure out what the hazard is... this can be a safety issue. It was much better when the announcement stated exactly what the hazard was, therefore one could stay focused without having to look at the phone all the time. Another change in a recent update is the new female American English voice is very annoying!! Please go back to the original voice... it was much more pleasant and natural sounding. This new voice is not very friendly and on a long drive it’s quite irritating. Overall it’s a great app that has saved me time and gas getting from point to point. The rerouting around traffic jams and accidents are nice, identifying traffic cameras, speed limits and current speed, etc are all nice features not found in other applications. Keep up the good work Waze... but PLEASE fix the “hazard” warning (by going back to the way it used to be) and change back to the original American English voice. Thank you
Incredible resource
by Noa and Grandma on 2018/07/20 15:29
I am delighted by the services provided by the Waze app. On the first day I used it, it took me by previously unknown routes to a bakery to pick up a birthday treat for my dear daughter with 5 minutes to spare through rush hour traffic. The second time we used it we were at a huge airshow just outside of Portland OR and Waze saved the day by taking us back to Vancouver, WA on a very quiet and beautiful twisting country road through rolling farm land that ended up bringing us into Portland by way of the St. John's bridge. We were astonished to find that it took the same amount of time it would have taken us to go on the highway on a low traffic day. We were sold on it through these first initial encounters. BUT, my third use of it made me recognize how incredibly valuable and up to date it is it is when my destination was 2 blocks away from a bank robbery in progress and it diverted me from my normal route down narrow side streets where multitudes of cars were coming in the opposite direction but I seemed to be the only car going against the flow of traffic. Waze kept me safe and away from gunfire that was occurring just a block away from my final destination as bank robbers tried to make a getaway. Thanks Waze and thanks to all you Wazers that keep this app up to date so consistently. You rock!!!
Useful but NOT safe
by EDazey on 2018/02/24 19:57
I like Waze for navigation; it has some good aspects over other map apps-I like that based on the day and time that I open the app it predicts where I might be going, I like that it chooses the shortest route and is always right regarding my ETA, I like that I can send my ETA to any of my contacts so they know when to expect me, and I like that if I try to access the search function while in motion it says this is unsafe and asks if I am the passenger. I DON’T like that all other uses of the app while in motion are extremely unsafe. To document police, accident, stalled car, road closure, etc I have to take my eyes off the road to navigate through all the prompts which is exactly like texting and driving, I DON’T like that there are ads that pop up anytime I am going less than 5mph-my husband has them pop at highway speeds! We need a paid version of the app!! Also, the see other people on the road function does not work well. There are many times I see other icons when there isn’t even another car around or my husband is using the app in his car ahead of me but I don’t see his icon. Also, beeps are not useful. Not only is it unsafe to get in and access the beep function, it serves no purpose. Once you accept them there is no history and no way to tell who beeped you. Like I said, I like the app for overall navigation and real-time ETA, but otherwise it needs some serious updates.
Not good (especially with Apple Car Play) but has potential
by FrPoupart on 2020/01/03 14:04
I’ve been using Waze For carpooling since September (four months now) primarily as a driver. I am glad it’s been launched and I have some constructive feedback. The app has changed and is not working well with Apple Car Play. It will not allow me to access messaging feature while when I arrive at the pick up point and I cannot end the carpool for several minutes until I exit the car thus making the whole process a nuisance rather than a seamless experience. The carpool features should be available on Apple Car Play. Additionally, 1) there are way too many buttons to push as a driver, thus causing significant distraction in the process; 2) the fact that there are two apps (driver and rider) is significantly confusing to me and everyone whom I’ve ridden with; 3) the app’s design to protect privacy is the rider makes pick-up locations that are totally illogical and make no sense (like the middle of a freeway, just as an example); 4) the app biases their rider, rather than an equal approach for both rider and driver (if the rider sets a time, the driver cannot suggest an alternate) so there should be a reschedule button; 5) the app is simply NOT elegant and modern looking, it is clunky and the buttons to move between screens are hard to tap because they are so small. Other than these issues, it’s a valiant effort and I applaud the Waze and Goggle teams for trying to crack this nut. It is something the world needs.
Used to be so good
by Debest74 on 2019/02/07 02:01
This app used to be so good but for the past few months is just not working. At this point i open it for police reports and use google maps for directions. I go fairly frequent to Las Vegas from California. Lately the directions won’t load and when I do get it to work it routs me completely out of the way!!!! Google maps tells me it’s going to take me about 4 hours with traffic and Waze is literally making me turn around/make a U on the 15 when driving from Vegas to take a completely obscure way adding 3 hours to the rout. The last straw was a few weeks ago driving from California to Las Vegas. At first it wouldn’t load so I went to the Waze support area and it advised to break down the trip in chunks so I decided to have it navigate me to the outlets in Barstow since I pass them EVERY SINGLE TIME. Somehow it took me trough a back way and trough a town name Crestline, up some mountains in the middle of no where and by the. It was pass 12am!!!! A 4 hour drive turn into an 11 hour drive!!!!!!! If anything happened I would have been royally effed in the middle of nowhere. This weekend I went back to California and decided to try again thinking it was maybe a problem that day. Once again it kept routing me trough some weird areas turning a 4 hour trip into 7. I had my girlfriend open her Waze to compare and Hers was working perfectly fine and using a complete different rout than mine was and about the same one as google maps.
Doesn’t work well with iOS 12
by serickjr on 2018/10/05 02:21
Update Oct 3, 2018- We’ve been using Waze for many years and have always loved it... until iOS 12. There has been so many issues with it freezing, crashing and interfering with the built in Bluetooth in our car. It will completely cut off the Bluetooth in the car making it completely useless. We deleted the app for a while because it just didn’t work at all and redone loaded it after some updates were released after iOS 12 was out for a while and that’s when the Bluetooth issues started, needless to say we deleted it again. I’m very disappointed, we used for every drive we took, even up to the grocery store 2 miles away. As you can see below from our first review we absolutely loved it... But sadly, not so much anymore. I really hope that you’re reading these reviews and doing something to fix these issues so we can start using it again! Since Google owns Waze I Would love to see some of Google Maps functions integrated into Waze. Other than that I have no complaints except the occasional outage, but we've been using it since it came out a few years ago and have loved it from the beginning!! Keep up the good work and get some of those google map features carried over to Waze!!
The coolest App to discover a stocker who is tapped into you by staying close
by mefreesea on 2019/09/24 06:22
I love this app simply because of his style and I like way to look at our worsening traffic situation all across or length it's no longer our grandparents freeway gone are the days of leisurely drive and pleasant afternoon behind the wheel now driving Siri is business and not to be left that at all so Waze shows it other ways to use this app Multi platform use an informational stack to assist with around you at all times need to come to that oh my by that I mean the dreaded stocker the one who just won't leave you alone and must bother you in any which way they can interesting that avatars have now become avatars maybe that's a new word car the tatf. but for later next line recently I've had that displeasure of finding that I to warrant a sucker and I only found out because Waze showed me that my stocker was never far behind have a virgin ever prime ever trying to communicate the Daniel benign idiocy of their plate In stocking me it showed me how to stock them and soon as you might imagine the police were involved and well wouldn't you know it my stocker became a shocker who ended up in the slammer known as the locker and there you have it my happy story brought to you by the way thank you Stucker free
Just install and use it. Always getting better. A few improvements requested.
by Casual game player on 2019/06/27 12:00
Great features: best routing around trouble I’ve ever seen around the most up to date traffic information possible. The audio app integration is a neat addition. I recently upgraded my phone and it uses the additional screen space effectively. Changing the voice for directions is great. Loving the validation Cookie Monster provides at my destination! Could be improved: Pandora integration makes it look like you can change stations or thumb up/down from within Waze but it doesn’t actually work. Needs to include Audible and Podcasts apps. If I take a shortcut through an alley or start out in a school parking lot, Waze seems to really lose track of where I am and is in recalculation mode for miles at best. Sometimes I have to kill it and start over to get it to tell me where to go at a critical junction. Nit pick: Routes could better predict drive times based on historical data. I drive from Illinois to Missouri in the St. Louis area every day. That means picking a bridge over the Mississippi right at the start. I-270 will always jam up in north St. Louis County after I leave my house and take 5-10 minutes longer than Waze says on a GOOD day. They aren’t all good days.
I don’t understand the hype...
by amc135 on 2019/06/05 22:04
I’ve been using Waze consistently for about a week and a half. I’ve always used Google Maps, but heard a lot of hype about Waze and thought I would give it a try. Each time I used it, I would plug the same address into Google Maps to compare routes and arrival times. Many times the routes were the same, and if they weren’t, Google Maps always had a faster arrival time or the quicker ability to see ETAs of other routes. Today when I left work, the ETA on Waze was about 5 minutes faster, so I decided to take that route. Google Maps added about 10 minutes to my ETA when I veered off onto the Waze path, but I thought maybe Waze had data that Google did not. It turns out they do not. I sat still in traffic for 10 minutes. Maybe other cities are more accurate, but Google Maps undoubtedly has better traffic data than Waze in the Cleveland area. I guess it is moderately helpful to see hazards on the road, but that’s pretty much the only feature that I like. Also I recently started seeing ads as I was driving? I understand that you need money from advertisers, but to darken the screen to push an ad and make me unable to see my driving route is very distracting and I’m always scrambling to get rid of it, pulling my attention from the road. Maybe have ads on startup or while users are not en route to a location. Overall, I think I’ll stick to Google Maps.
Better than most
by stanwgg on 2018/11/27 14:56
I’ve just begun to use the app. I like the fact that it alerts you when the police are near. It also notifies you if a car is on the shoulder of the road stopped. It has a background music feature which would be nicer if it included Apple Music or Pandora. The app warns about road work, traffic jams, it is nice. It is slow to sync with Bluetooth. I can sync my phone with my truck, yet the app does not speak through the Bluetooth connection. It is difficult to communicate while I’m giving and address for directions the first time. It is hard to hear because it will not use the iPhone speaker in the beginning either. I have to hold it up to my ear while giving the first address. Shortly after the first route begins it will use the Bluetooth connection. The graphics are much better than the iOS app and also Google Maps. The screen view is also better than other apps. Seems more intuitive than either of those GPS apps also. The app is slow to turn off the location services on my iPhone after I reached the destination. This concerns me that it might run down the iPhone battery prematurely. It does have a nice parking feature to locate your car later. Fix a couple of small things and it gets 5 stars from me. This is my new GPS app.
Florence Evacuation
by Peach11111 on 2018/09/19 16:12
WAZE IS AMAZING. Thank you sooo much whoever created this APP. I am home safe because of this APP. I can not praise you enough. Hi everyone. Right now I am so thankful to be home. We evacuated to Concord and was there from Wednesday the 12th to Tuesday the 18th. We knew our home was alright but you know you need to see it for yourself. We left Concord at 10:30 yesterday morning along with our two puppies. We used our GPS on hour cars for a good ways. We ended up in SC at South of the border. This was also with the help of a police officer and a local resident. But with all of this and trying to get past the water flooding was daunting. My sisters we watching out for the whole way. One of them told use to try the app “WAZE”. I downloaded it to my iPad. I am here to tell you we would not be home today if it wasn’t for this app. It would even tell us about a vehicle parked on the side of the road a half a mile away in the dark. It is amazing. She only made two mistakes but that was because road block had just happened. I highly recommend this app. Everyone stay safe and God bless all the lineman, police, EMS, firefighters and anyone else I have not mentioned that are working so hard to keep us safe and getting our lives back to normal.
Great app but has definite shortcomings.
by Duncapa on 2018/05/30 13:26
Waze is my #1 choice for GPS. Live traffic updates, being able to edit traffic conditions on the fly to give a more accurate commute, and sharing routes and eta’s are great features. I do hope they integrate voice commands with Siri so we can say things like “Hey Waze, drop a stopped vehicle pin.” While we are driving so interaction becomes handsfree and safer. I gave 3 stars because there have been repeated issues with the app and service saying “No GPS available.” I have tried rebooting, deleting & reinstalling, and clearing the app cache on my phone as well as making sure iOS and the app are updated constantly. But the occurrence does not appear to be linked to hardware failure unless it is something inherent to the 8s. Google and Apple maps do not have any issues when this occurs so I’m at a loss as to what causes the issues with Waze. This occurs for about a 8-12 hours once a day, once or twice a month. Not the end of the world but heavily inconvenient when you regularly use the service for your GPS navigation (and it’s a great service) and you are on the road daily for 4-6 hours at a time it is a problem. If they could fix this problem and integrate voice commands for pin drops, this would be a hands down 5 Star app. Hopefully I’ll get some feedback and can continue to use the service.
Hate to delete this navigation app
by zerodivin3 on 2018/02/22 10:14
But for a long time now, probably almost 2 years (I know, I’m faithful). I’ve realized this thing eats up SO much data. I run out of 2 gigs in less than a week on long drives. I love everything about it (especially hazardous objects on road and police), but it’s missing an important feature I’ve secretly been waiting for that google maps has and that’s the whole standby screen to save battery and phone from heating up. Many times Waze redirects me from traffic which was cool, but then I realized after a couple times, I actually lost time AND gas because of it due to stops and whatnot instead of just sitting in traffic. Not that it hasn’t helped at other times, but I’ve learned that most of the time the traffic it predicts has long dissipated (so much for “live”. Overall, it’s just been getting worse and I’ve thought to delete this app a long time ago if it weren’t for the social part, but then I realized all my friends haven’t touched it in forever and I only use it to share with my wife who doesn’t even realize I send her ETAs anyways till I’m already there and she calls me to ask me if I’ve arrived lol. It’s been Waze, but ultimately, my data is more important to me than the 80% ghost police notifications and my safe speed limit travels.
Vacation Travel SOS
by Gwennz on 2017/09/16 04:59
Due to a Cat 5 Hurricane Irma and Cat 4 Jose which caused destruction and total havoc in the Caribbean our well-planned trip to Grenada (a year in the making) was cancelled after 3 hrs. of wishful thinking and 2 wks. of monitoring NOAA and the weather channel several times a day. With our flight cancelled and at JFK hrs from home we decided to just turn in our tickets for an impromptu trip to San Francisco which was on our bucket list. We flew in without any preparation more than finding a last minute deal on a downtown hotel for 2 nites. We rented a car once we spent a couple of days in San Francisco. If not for my WAZ app we would not have been able to do half of what we did! It got us to our 2nd location a rental outside of San Francisco and on time! It took us to Big Sur via Rte 1, all around Napa Valley, and adventures that took us to views of the Golden Gate Bridge that only locals get to see. With the app we were able to find our way to impromptu routes that took us 2500 ft to an observation tower that blew our minds. The app regularly saved us from excruciating California traffic jams by re-routing us and is amazingly good at time estimations. We are most appreciative for this app. Thank you for helping us explore gorgeous Northern California.
Awesome, but latest rev draining battery!
by Harumph99 on 2018/12/24 16:15
Love this app and use it all the time. Routing seems to favor getting to bigger roads rather than using local roads for short trips, but otherwise works decently to get around traffic. One thing to watch for is I think it treats a right turn the same as a left in traffic, when often a left is nearly impossible to cross 2+ lanes of traffic rather than just entering 1 lane. Rel 4.46.1 is having a crash issue — after 30-90 mins it’s crashing. Also seems like it’s failing to add some previous drives to the history. Had one drive that was done and I’d arrived but when i went to history to go there again, I had to re-enter the address because it was not in history. Also, it's damned annoying that I registered with my cell# years ago but replaced my phone a while back and had to rebuild the keychain and I didnt remember my password. Unlike 8million other apps that have a forgot password function, WAZE says it's impossible to recover my password without having already registered with my email. A) that's stupid! B) tell me that when I registered years ago not when it's too late! I lost wazer royalty status and havent even bothered to re-register out of bitterness! Serioisly, guys, you have my phone#! Text me with a password reset link! It's not like there are bank accounts at stake here!!!
Avoid traffic via alternate routes
by Angelitaackth on 2019/07/22 21:16
This app is great for finding alternate routes. It uses up my battery though. Please give an option to have It search for my location only when I am using the app. When I close the app, it doesn't need to keep track of where I am anymore as I am likely not driving. I find that this app gets me places more quickly while avoiding traffic. It needs a little more fine tuning, as it put me in a no outlet street very close to the back end of my destination. I had to drive away from that point and the-input the address to get to the front end, but that worked. It was beneficial that I already had a sense of what the place should look like. I like that it recognizes "streets" in some major parking lots. That was a pleasant surprise. :) I wish there were a way for it to show how much time I save by going the alternate route versus the normal highways. UPDATE & REQUEST: Yay! My battery lasts a lot longer now. Thank you for addressing this issue. It would be great if there were a button to notify others when there is a train crossing (and recommend alternate route or option to wait for train) and the same with drawbridges up (I live in a city of bridges so this is quite valuable info and is not the same as slow traffic).
Stunned!!!

Huge shoutout 2 Waze & ALL Waze users in Richmond VA (and all tri-cities) 4 how live this app truly is. TBH I had my doubts! But you have definitely made me a believer of the amazing accuracy! Each time I’ve used waze & there’s an alert of police, debris on road, & car on shoulder etc...it was at a💯! So I 👏🏼 U & All the Waze users! I ❤️@waze & will recommend 2 everyone! I will most definitely consider giving waze 5/5 stars ⭐️ if you guys would take all the users suggestions that I’ve come across & actually make it happen in a more timely manner. I also have a suggestion myself. CAN YOU PLEASE ADD more options on vehicles to choose from (or be able to change the color of the vehicle by being able to hold the vehicle down and choose a different color) on the navigation map? Also, make the vehicles you have available actually look like the description of that vehicle? For example: The SUV looks like a dump truck, the bus...well there should possibly be two types of buses (make them both longer & make one yellow), and as I’d stated before have different color & size options for the cars, & make one for an actual SUV with different colors. I really hope you’ll make these changes. Once you do, I’ll be more than happy to give you a 5/5.
No customer support at all
by Techie! on 2018/05/10 00:15
Customer support is an automated email feeling you to refer to the troubleshoot section. A section that I have read so often looking for me resolution, that I have now memorized it! Simple issue - I lost my password. Password reset help allows me to put in my email address. But I do not receive any email to reset the password (tried numerous times). So now I think that I may never have registered my email on Waze. And my only option is try to create a whole new profile. When creating a new profile, I want to register my email (which I don’t think I did in the initial profile since I am not getting the password reset email etc). When I try to register my email in the NEW profile I created, Waze won’t allow it and says ‘email already exists’. So if the email already exists, why doesn’t Waze send me the email to reset my password on the old account to which I lost the password? IF MY EMAIL IS ALREADY REGISTERED WITH WAZE, WHY WON’T WAZE SEND ME A RESET PASSWORD EMAIL? OR ALLOW ME TO SET UP A NEW ACCOUNT. I have only one email address!!! If it is in use on the old account that I locked myself out of, either allow me to reset the old account or allow me to set up my new account with my email address. Simple!! Why is it so difficult?
One of the best if not the best GPS apps
by Mlightning1 on 2019/04/23 12:38
Basically my title summed it up. The Waze app is one of the best if not the best GPS app available to the public and amazingly free I shouldn’t of said that too loud I don’t want to give them any ideas. I just moved into a new home in a very new subdivision and ran google maps,Bing maps,maps and a couple of others none of the other GPS apps could find my new house but guess what the Waze app pinpointed it directly took me right to it! Seriously though the Waze app gives you real time information as it is occurring due to the fact it’s interactive with other users. Not only do you get directions from point a to point B Waze gives you a choice of three different routes and you choose the one you think would be best tells you the time it would take to do it how far it is tells you what obstructions you might encounter along the way. The app allows you in real time to post accident stead of just occurred where police are hidden shooting radar tells you what speed the traffic is moving in a traffic jam it’s a pretty accurate app as long as other users are updating events as they occur. To sum it Up the Waze app is outstanding
Not very good anymore.
by Impost0r on 2018/10/06 19:12
Every time I set a long destination (over 100 miles) it gives me the stupid... uh oh something went wrong message when attempting to set the route. It literally leaves you with no choice than to use another GPS app if you need the info, like right now, as is usually the case if you need it to actually tell you how to get somewhere. You seriously need to fix this ASAP! I’m considering deleting this app now as it has become very unreliable to me at this point. It works ok with showing road info, but I need to know how to get there when I really use this app seriously. Also, it would be nice if it told you about alternative routes that would be faster if you encounter traffic. It also doesn’t show surrounding road traffic until you get on a road and find out it was equally terrible with traffic. The surrounding traffic it does show is usually not consistent with the surrounding roads one might travel. It would be nice to know before I take an alternate route if it also has terrible traffic. This app used to be a lot better. Now it’s pretty close to being bloat-ware. I want to love this app again, but right now all I ever do with it is curse at it for being so terrible in its current state. I’ll change my review if they can fix it. Please fix this app. I used to love it, now I just can’t recommend it to anyone.
WAZE is my road buddy.
by GypsyDArtist on 2018/08/31 16:27
I really like the WAZE app. I use it all the time. It is great for turn by turn audio directions that keeps me hands free. The learning curve is fairly easy and the app features and interface have been consistent which is great because having to learn new and improved stuff while actually driving isn’t the best. I frequently drive up and down the whole west coast and WAZE is a lifesaver for re-routing around traffic jams and knowing what the speed limit is in an area as they seem to change a lot. ** The reporting system could be streamlined a little to make it easier to report the most common incidents on the home screen and the detailed hazard reports do not allow for some common issues: people on side of road, weather issues that impact safety/visibility like severe rain/lightning/ road ice and to easily report changes in speed limit signs. It would also be nice to be able to mark a hazard location when “out of signal” that would pop up when reconnected. **We really enjoy the occasional “guest” reporting voices ( Star Wars, Cars, Coke Santa) it would be fun to do the same and have some seasonal options with the Wazer profile avatars too! Overall WAZE is my road buddy and is my go to app. for driving directions.
Getting a creeping feeling...
by MuchHate4Apple on 2020/02/24 03:20
I’ve used Waze for years and loved it, but I’ve started becoming suspicious of some routes it takes me. I use it just about every time I drive, even when I know where I’m going, for traffic updates, cops, etc. Lately, it seems like Waze tries to force me onto main roads when backroads are a much better option; even in the dead middle of rush hour when I’d have to make a left turn off the main road, without a signal or stop sign, against pure gridlock. Meanwhile the backroads are light with traffic at best, and much faster (and arguably safer). I’ll point out, while these backroads are residential, they aren’t neighborhood roads or anything like that at all. With all that said, I can’t help but get the impression Waze is diverting me towards companies who advertise with them. This wouldn’t bug me too terribly much if it weren’t for sending me directly into heavy traffic, even if just a quarter mile or so, when I know it’s going to take much longer to navigate through it than the couple extra minutes Waze estimates. I can’t prove it, so I’m not saying I know this to be true. What I can say is that this used to never happen, yet seems to be an ever increasing occurrence when I use Waze now. It’s starting to make me reconsider its value over Google Maps.
Needs Improvement
by Yosuke Matsumura on 2018/11/28 04:03
CarPlay support needs attention. The dictation of destinations is flat out broken. If I’m playing music or podcasts in Overcast, it won’t even pause it when listening for the voice dictation. Even worse, even if no audio is playing, the app says it’s “listening” but catches nothing. The feature is useless. Reporting stuff takes too many taps. There are basically 2 things that get reported 99% of the time - police and car stopped on shoulder. Why can the police report be done in 2 taps while the stopped car takes like 4? Why does it take the same amount of taps as roadkill? Siri Shortcuts integration is BADLY needed. It’s the best way to gain back some functionality since you can’t set default map apps in iOS. “Hey Siri, Waze to mom’s house”. PLEASE!! Turn tracking. When I come to a turn, please just assume I’m making the turn and rotate the map when I get to the intersection. I know the GPS needs some time to verify that I’ve actually made the turn, but waiting 3-4 seconds for the map to recognize that I’ve made a turn is bothersome and sometimes very annoying if I need to make multiple turns in quick succession. If the app would just assume the turn is going to be made and preemptively rotate the map, that would be awesome. (Like the native Apple Maps does it)
Sad
by Scottie NH on 2018/12/16 22:17
This used to my best way of avoiding traffic as I commute in the busy Boston area. Worked great until a little while ago when it stopped working. Now it sends me weird ways that are NOT avoiding traffic but instead turning me in to it. Ironically (or not) it seems to be pushing me lately near shops and businesses that I visit online which makes me believe that it is pointing me towards Google's sponsors and are tracking the sites I visit rather than helping me avoid traffic which was the original intended purpose. This is further cemented in my mind as the app is also showing ads for places I frequent. I'm not even one of those paranoid people who think that everyone is watching their every move. My point in this rant... Get it together Google/Waze. I loved this app once. I would even be willing to pay for the service if you got rid of the ads and got me to my destination the fastest way. Oh! And I have also proven my point by sometimes ignoring the turn you want me to make knowing there will probably be less traffic and watched my arrival time get quicker and quicker. End of rant. Five Stars again when you put the drivers first again rather than your sponsors. Edit... Now I really wish I could give 0 stars. No response from developer on this nor to my support request through the app. So... Thanks for not getting back to me and you have lost yet another user... Wake up Waze!
I can be a FIVE STAR App!
by Scrapbookaz on 2019/11/12 20:15
This app can be a five star app. Granted it’s new and growing. But, the directions are not always exact. The notifications on traffic, things on the road, car pulled over, accidents, police near by, red camera alerts are amazing!!! This app can be five star when the directions to some areas are corrected. Even when submitting a notice of an address that is incorrect is some times difficult to fix. These addresses are confused with streets that are similar in name. For example, Moreno is the correct address vs. Mereno which is also a street and is not correct in pertaining to the location I need to go to. I have had it corrected by another Wazer, yet is reverted back to the wrong name of the street. Those are the frustrations I have. I notice it more on some addresses being incorrect based on, that I am driving a lot. This app is great for keeping you aware of where police radar are being seen by other Wazers. The Wazers are what makes this app so useful and fun to use. Such a wonderful idea and to make you aware of traffic locations, slow downs, standstills and much more. I really like how the blue circle gets highlighted around your car on the app when you have driven into a radar area. Love this app!
Using Waze for 6 years.
by waldron77 on 2018/09/18 16:18
I’ve been using Waze for about 6 years and there have been a lot of great improvements in that time. I only have a few gripes about it atm. First off it’s kinda annoying when it automatically navigates you to a location like your home. I do not have a normal commute being a contractor. So I head home at different times in the day. So what happens when I’m entering a new address to drive to it interrupts me when I’m still punching the address in. At times I’ve been mistaken when the address I just entered was where I was heading, when in reality it had already decided I wanted to go home. I wish this function was optional! The second issue is waze will take you to the completely wrong location because it didn’t find the address you where looking for so it will say let’s go and when you get close it’s just the street and not a house number. Or it will add a NE at the end without you noticing it. I’ve spent a lot of time having to navigate to the right address using google or Apple maps. But I continue to use waze because it is helpful in the city getting around wrecks and jams! P.S. it destroys your battery life! Absolute must to have it charging while navigating.
Great app
by Bb2132 on 2018/04/07 19:06
I gave this 4 stars only because of how many times you have to press something to report it. I quick button or favorite would be great. Example: I live in a very rural area. I use this to mark deer on the roads for my coworkers that are behind me. I have to press 5 buttons in order to mark them. It's a dark and winding road with lots of deer so this is dangerous or it takes a while for me to get it marked. A quick button on the map screen for animals on the road would be fantastic. When I see a deer, I can just press that button and boom, it's done. Of course this could be a customization for people and maybe have a couple spots for quick buttons. That's just one that I use very often (10 to 15 times in 25 miles). I know others have their most frequent buttons they use. Two or three buttons across the bottom or left side would not hurt anything. You can even make them smaller like the size of the compass. P.S. if points are not accumulating, write a review and they will appear. I’ve done that twice. lol Waze, what is happening with the points? They have it updated in a while, again. Come on Waze, I live for these points! I live for these rankings. I need updated!!
Mostly Good Navigation, Interface Problems
by HomerIII on 2017/09/20 12:14
I switch back and forth between Waze and Google maps, often comparing routes. While usually similar, Waze seems to be better on avoiding problems and using real-time traffic data. However, it also has an annoying bug — occasionally it will take you off the most direct route and send you in a large circle, ending back on the main route close to where you left. I’ve seen this happen when it was clear there was no reason to make this detour because I could see that the main route was clear far ahead. My other gripe is that lack of control over the interface leads to annoyances. While you now have more control over what problems it reports (finally, no more “car on the side of the road” alerts!), it seems to ignore the setting for distance, often reporting “Police 25 miles ahead” when they aren’t even on your route. Also, while the speedometer is very useful, there is no way to change the size or default colors (white below speed limit, red above), so it is often impossible to read. Bottom line: worth giving a try, but don’t ditch Google maps, and watch out for occasionally nutty directions.
Waze has flaked out since last update
by want my privacy on 2018/09/19 22:46
I have always been a huge fan of Waze and recommended it to others on a regular basis. I would have given it five stars. But in the last couple weeks, as it seems since the last update, it has lost its accuracy. It is taking me into traffic jams on a regular basis and redirecting me when there is no problem as I can see the freeway from the new route & it is traveling faster than I am. Warning of hazards has diminished in accuracy also. There has always been a problem with Waze sometimes not giving enough notice to get off the route when there is a problem I had resulting in me losing the opportunity to avoid the traffic jam. I have never understood this issue because when I’m on a route and have to make a turn ahead, Waze alerts me incessantly about the upcoming turn. This is particularly irritating when it’s a route that I drive all of the time. I thought Waze was supposed to learn about my usual routes. It also does not seem to learn that I have a preference for a different route in my neighborhood and is always trying to redirect me to its route which is not any faster and has some other shortcomings.
Generally good but can be slow & ads are distracting
by Lolkat12345 on 2019/12/24 03:29
First, Waze has been generally more accurate than google or apple maps, so I would still recommend it over them. The distance from your location to a turn is much more accurate and doesn't make it look like it's significantly farther, which is a problem I've had on other apps. My two issues though: Speed to update route: when I've missed a turn, the app takes a LONG time to adjust the route, often telling me to take turns on roads I've already passed. Recently had a drive where I would pass a road and it would then tell me to turn. I've also had connectivity issues when in areas that still have strong phone service. Ads: Large pop up ads that dim the rest of the map. This is VERY distracting when driving - and very dangerous for drivers! I don't love the pop ups in general even though I like the warnings about cameras/traffic. This catches your eye while driving when you don't expect it and I can easily see someone getting distracted enough to crash. PLEASE change this or find a way to make it less distracting to drivers - it's simply irresponsible in the way it's implemented.
Definitely the best
by Nicci5 on 2019/06/27 15:41
This app gets me everywhere I need to go. I use it daily for almost every trip. I have Apple Carplay and all I have to do is say, "Take me to ______ using Waze" and it launches and starts to give directions which is perfect for when you're already driving and need to head somewhere else on the fly. I have 2 minor complaints. 1) Waze tends to learn my routine and automatically programs itself to take me where it thinks I needs to go. Normally this is great but there's been times when I've asked to go elsewhere and it's logic had overridden my request. For instance, I asked to go to somewhere on a vacation day and it started directing me to work. No fun!! Lol. 2) I love using the voices. Cookie Monster is great. But, there are times when you don't want the interruption, just the onscreen directions. I wish that the onscreen mute button was simply on/off. Instead it takes you to a new menu to select alerts only or to mute everything. I've NEVER wanted alerts only. If anything I'd want the opposite but would much prefer a simple mute/unmute function. That way I don't have to have my eyes off the road to mute/unmute. Please correct this!! Otherwise though, it's the only navigation I use.
Used to love waze
by tracikout on 2019/04/05 05:28
I’ve had waze for several years now. I’ve seen a lot of changes and improvements with the app. Now I use waze all day everyday with my delivery job. I totally depend on waze helping me get somewhere in the most efficient way. Plus it is powered thru my work app so all I have to do in my work app is tap “navigate” and I don’t need to type in the address. It’s great. However for about the past month I have been running into major glitches. One is that I tap navigate and the app just spins, never pulling up the directions. I have to kill the app and start over. The next and most frustrating is that waze has taken me on some complete, major circles. I’m somewhat familiar with my city but need help in neighborhoods so I can USUALLY catch the runaround before I actually drive a complete 10 mile circle. I thought it was just like from over using the app or something so I switched to google maps. Didn’t care for the visuals of it BUT I absolutely love that on google at the end it will actually tell you your destination is either on the left or right. So to waze....please please add that feature to your app!
Not the app it once was
by fifffer on 2018/10/30 09:12
This app used to be the best bet for beating horrible city traffic, finding the best routes for long drives, and optimizing efficiency on city-street-drives. But very recently, within the last few weeks, I’ve noticed that when I need to go anywhere more than 30 or 40 miles away (sometimes less) especially during rush hour or peak traffic times (which is when you need the help the most), the app gives me errors messages like “unable to connect to routing server” or “something went wrong” and it just won’t calculate my route... AT ALL. I’ve actually had to resort to using the native Apple Maps app on my phone lately.... and that was something I abandoned like three years ago. Waze, just last year, was able to route an inter- state trip I went on, with no problems. Now it can’t even get me to the next city over during rush hour. Hey Waze executives... INVEST IN SOME BETTER SERVER FARMS!! No one cares what you can do at 3 AM or 12:15 PM... you need to work at 7 AM and 5:30 PM. If you are falling victim to your own popularity and success (aka, you can’t handle the traffic on your own network, no pun intended), then either upgrade your infrastructure and bandwidth, or bow out and let Google Maps or Apple Maps take over.
Cookie!!
by MyReview867 on 2019/06/12 02:09
On a whim, we decided to let Cookie Monster be our navigator. We laughed our butts off when he reported police up ahead, and if they’d like a cookie. It’s a little weird that he will mention kilometers and miles in his descriptions. The app is iffy on whether or not you can hear navigation over the music. I’d like for my music to be turned down a bit, instead of the directions competing with my music. Also, if I’m on alerts only, I’d like to know if there’s a faster route or ways to avoid a traffic accident on my route, since I’m not watching my app while driving. I would like to see an update where it tells you which lane you’ll need to be in, either for getting off the highway or to prepare for future turns. Like get in the right of the two left turn lanes because you’re going to turn right pretty quick after that. And also, if you sync your calendar to Waze, there should be an option to say “I want to be at my appointments 15 minutes early” so you don’t have to adjust your calendar entry and try to remember what time your appointment actually is. Small stuff, but I think it’d be helpful.
Annoying additions
by Brayster15 on 2019/06/06 02:24
Overall, a good app; however, lately advertising symbols continue to populate the map. Driving past an area that has a lot of fast food places will populate the map with advertisers such that it actually crowds the map. Like ai need more ads. It just makes the map look way too busy when you’re trying to glance over to check out where you are in your route. Additionally, and just as annoying is that they have added your speed to the map which turns red even if you’re exceeding the speed limit by 1mph. If that’s not already enough to annoy someone, every few seconds a large red speed limit flashes alerting the driver they are exceeding the speed limit. It’s completely annoying! There are few if any drivers on my commute that adhere to the speed limit and doing so may put you at risk of getting rear ended considering most are driving at least 15mph over. The point being is that this sign flashes continuously every few seconds during one’s commute and is annoying especially seeing it for well over an hour every day. I don’t need this app to be a babysitter alerting me constantly that I’m exceeding the speed limit. I am considering switching back to Google maps.
Update:Used to love this app. Deleted it.
by Greenie mama 65 on 2019/02/14 04:29
Review Update: I saw new update and reviews in app store and decided I’d reinstall the app to see if it improved. IT STILL TAKE YOU TO THE WRONG DESTINATION!! What the heck are the developers thinking?? They have ruined this previously wonderful app. Last months review: I don’t know what happened to this ex-wonderful app but I’m so angry I’m deleting it. It recently was unable to get me to my correct destination. I actually missed a house concert yesterday because I could not find the location. I followed the directions and it said I had arrived at my destination when the address in front of me in a residential neighborhood was clearly NOT what was programmed into my phone. I reset several phone setting and tried again. I reentered the address and it sent me to an empty office complex parking lot. Turning location, Bluetooth, cellular and WiFi on and off had not solved the problem. I rendered address after uninstalling and reinstalling the compass. I ended up at the first incorrect it sent me to. After wandering around for almost two hours, I got back to the interstate and went home without the use of Waze. I never got to my house concert where I was supposed to be contributing a dish for everyone’s dinner. I was unhappy when all the ads started popping up but tolerated them. Now I have no reason to ever use this app again.
Makes driving more difficult tbh
by lattjkkogcd on 2017/12/22 23:49
My first problem with this app is that it would change routes on me all of the sudden, it was frustrating and I don’t need that kind of distraction - you can’t expect me to keep my eyes glued onto my phone to watch if it changed routes. Like at least let me know before hand that the route was changed. I deleted the app but then decided to give it a second chance because I like the community aspect of it. I like how it told me what areas were slow, where construction was, where police were, as well as comments from other divers. While driving I came across an accident, traffic was slow because they closed down a lane so I decided to report it... only to come to find I didn’t know how to. I obviously couldn’t take the time to figure it out since I was driving so when I got home I figured it out. Apparently you can only report an accident if you are in the area..... AND driving. Why would I try to report something while driving? Sorry Waze, I gave you a chance but I like to drive safe. Only way I could see this being a good app is if you’re driving with someone else who can do it for you or if you let us report things when we’re not in the area and not driving .... and let us know when you switch a route for god’s sake
Tremendous!
by SanDiego1986 on 2018/07/13 16:47
It’s beyond user friendly and all of the content is submitted by users. You can report literally any condition on the road. From downed power lines, major accidents, and all the way to road kill. You can also report a problem with the map (like I did) and someone will actually contact you as to what the map should look like. I reported a problem with the way my neighborhood was mapped because people kept getting lost. Within 24 hours, a map editor got in contact with me. I was even able to send him a video of how my neighborhood is mapped out. He took that video and compared it with satellite images and he fixed the issue. Now, people will be led to within five feet of my front door instead of across the street. You can also chat with other drivers. If there is an accident and you report it, you can add a message on it saying which lanes are blocked. Everyone can see that and it has also been known to help emergency responders get to an accident more efficiently. I’ve had it for nine months and I’m STILL discovering all of the stuff Waze can do. And the best part? It is 100% free.
Getting on the right track!!
by Blessedfe on 2017/11/30 12:30
This app has potential to be amazing!! Thanks for listening and making the change for location to be when in use! I have seen a few mistakes in destinations, such as being on the wrong side or one or two streets up but not sure how to fix those. Is there a tutorial? Also have moments when the voice commands are late or don’t work until you are going the wrong way. I can deal with all that! What is most frustrating is the fact when I prepare to drive and put in a destination 12 hours away, my daughter’s college, it thinks then says router failed and so I have to put in a city halfway there and then my original destination. Tried troubleshooting once but was asked for coordinates that I didn’t have. I would also like the option of choosing a route. The alternate routes feature doesn’t always work unless I drive that direction first. I should be able to from my city unless it’s way off, pick whether I want to travel I-29 or I-70 to some place... But fret not with all my concerns! I regularly recommend this app!! I just give them the waze (see what I did there) that I know to get around the hiccups of it! Thanks!! 🚗
Ford Sync Integration
by theBrknSystm on 2018/05/17 15:03
Love that I can now project Waze right on to my big screen with Sync 3. However, it seems like I often have to close the app, disconnect the phone then re open the app are re connect the phone for it to work. Otherwise on the first attempt when I launch Waze on Sync 3 it just sits there saying waiting for the device indefinitely. In addition, the performance is rather sluggish on screen. Attempting to report anything or do a search on screen is painful. So you end up closing the app and doing it on the the phone first then re launching the app on Sync 3. So I'm really hoping to see a performance improvement as the integration matures. My only other complaint would be that unlike the built in system navigation that can utilize the whole screen, Waze feels scrunched as to leave the system navigation buttons accessible at the bottom. Likewise when on the home screen the built in navigation gives you a mini map but when Waze is running you just get the Waze icon until you click it. I'm assuming since it's a third party integration there may be nothing that can be done about that but if it could that would be awesome.
Did Waze lose the way?
by chris78626 on 2018/07/09 10:22
I’ve been a daily user of the app for 6 years. 1) At some point over the last 2-4 months Waze seems to have slipped on reliably finding the fastest route. It used to be that I could practically never pick my own route that would beat Waze’s ETA. Then overnight the algorithm seems to have broken. Now I can often shave minutes off by taking a side street around a traffic light that is always backed up or something similar. I just passed up my exit in favor of a different route and shaved 4 minutes off my trip to Houston after Waze recalculated. All through June I played a game with my daughter on the way to summer camp: How many minutes can dad shave off of Waze. On the 19 miles to Camp, my average was 5 minutes, using the same shortcuts 20 days in a row. YOU’RE LOSING WHAT MADE YOU BETTER THAN APPLE AND GOOGLE. My guess is in an effort to streamline the algorithm (to save computing cycles due to an explosion of user load?) you’re ignoring some potential routes and you’ve lost something essential. 2) Bring back fastest/shortest. It matters for people driving electric vehicles. Or create an EV mode that will help minimize total kW used from A to B. It also matters for motorcyclists who’d rather not get on the 80mph Texas freeway.

Was good till it froze
by JAXY GOLDSMITH on 2020/06/01 17:58
I loved Waze until I was going to type something in and then it froze so I closed it then when I opened it, it was like new so I said log in but it said I was wrong and I knew I put in the same account so please fix in an update
Acura
by Sashaw101 on 2020/06/01 15:54
How about fixing it for the Acura’s
WAZE NOW BREAKS CARPLAY RADIO
by ArthurOne on 2020/06/01 15:36
After installing IOS 13.5 and recent WAZE updates, WAZE audio notifications no longer work properly with CarPlay. Normally, WAZE lowers the volume of Sirius XM for directional info. Now it completely interrupts the Sirius audio. Please return the normal function ASAP! Thank you,
Update
by Priio on 2020/06/01 12:16
Can you guys update this to support Apple CarPlay to display waze on its home page pls
Crashing

Lately the app is crashing right in the middle of giving directions. iPhone 11
Speed cameras can’t send updates !!!

Speed cameras can’t send updates !!!
It’s been great for 6 years
by Pfleiss on 2020/05/31 18:06
I’ve been using this app for 6years and now I can’t stand it because it force closes all the time.
Retired
by Licnz2kll on 2020/05/31 16:48
Great app! I drive about 3000 miles a month and use it all the time. Waze to improve the app? Provide weather coverage along the route chosen. Suggest gas stations with cheap prices along the route. Highlight attractions/sightseeing/ historical stops of interest. I have a 3 star because after the last few updates, it will not show al erase routes when prompted. Frustrating when you are on a long trip and want to go a different route, you have to add a stop to make it work.
I have a hard time getting a display the darn that

Not working the last few weeks.
by 2manyappleprdts on 2020/05/31 05:59
I loved this app when I first installed it. Now the voice notifications don’t work and it constantly shows my phone calling in on Bluetooth. I have cleared my cache, uninstalled it and have the latest version on my iPhone. I am so disappointed because this app was so much better than my cars navigation. Please fix this!
Crashes
by upsetbc on 2020/05/31 00:01
Loved this until the last two weeks it keeps shutting off. No reason can’t use it now.
Messed up CarPlay
by Aflax288 on 2020/05/30 23:54
The latest update will freeze my music volume on Apple CarPlay. I can’t raise or lower the volume unless I make a call then hang up.
Once was great
by Btrky on 2020/05/30 22:51
I love using Waze, but lately the app does not alert to reload hazards. They appear in the screen, but no longer alert and say “vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead” or “police reported ahead”. Whatever changed, please fix it.
Distances wrong
by Cindy143 on 2020/05/30 20:37
Ever since the last update which I think was a week ago, the distances too upcoming turns are wrong. Please fix!
Somethigs went wrong after last update
by N!M4 on 2020/05/30 20:01
I think after the last update I couldn’t use it with 3G and LTE service provided by cell phone operator. it still works on wifi.
Developer Suggestion
by Wow this works legit on 2020/05/30 18:25
Require users to add their exact make and model, and have a image of that exact car as their cursor, which would be visible to all users Then introduce a messaging system with an inbox, so if I saw a red mustang with a headlight out, I could inbox him and let him know. This feature should also have an option to be disabled or enabled by the user in the case of harassment
Voice directions not working
by JohnE217 on 2020/05/30 17:49
Used to work great, but now the voice directions no longer work. I’ve tried switching voices, turning sound off and on again, restarting the iPhone, closing the app, etc. No luck. Makes the app useless.
Can’t see the map
by Lil'cajun on 2020/05/30 17:18

Issues
by ridingthattrain on 2020/05/30 15:11
Most of the time it is great HOWEVER I have it set for “only when using” and it STAYS ON CONTINUOUSLY ! I have to go into the app ALL the time, change it to never, and then back to “only when using the app”
Great
by anti fraud on 2020/05/30 13:48
This app got me lost. And it told me to turn of a freeway where there was no of ramp.
Omgggg

It’s not working at alllllll Please fix
Horrible lately
by LSUfan67 on 2020/05/29 23:56
I have used Waze for a long time. The last few weeks it has had nothing but issues. I connect it with my phone through CarPlay. It will give one notification then no more the entire ride. It also causes the radio to stop playing with the first and only notification. PLEASE fix it. 🤦🏻‍♀️
Voice crash
by Sunyazdyshine on 2020/05/29 19:57
Voice stopped when phone locked Please fix it
Broken app
by alexanderwebster on 2020/05/29 18:58
New update, Waze will not rotate to landscape view.. doesn’t matter which side I turn the iPhone to including upside down.
No notifications when phone locked
by Typhanus on 2020/05/29 18:52
The app after the most recent update no longer gives notifications unless the phone is unlocked. It used to give background notifications when locked, and I haven’t seen a setting that would affect this. Please patch this issue!!
Used to be great
by Kbl1987 on 2020/05/29 18:40
This used to be a great app but my recent road trip will make me not use it again. While driving on busy highways where I needed my gps the most it constantly lost my location several times.
Time of arrival needs fixing
by GAM610 on 2020/05/29 18:23
Waze please update the time to leave for arrival at location it’s currently not accurate.
No Longer Works on 2020 Ford Explorer
by Cody927 on 2020/05/29 17:29
After updating to IOS 13.5 this app will no longer work on my 2020 Ford Explorer with Sync 3. I’ve tried uninstalling Waze, removing and reconnecting my IPhone to my Explorer and nothing has worked. Please FIX IT!!!
Waze
by Neciy@101 on 2020/05/29 16:57
My Waze is behind I can up on the state patrol and Waze didn’t say until after I passed it’s behind on street and exits. I use it when I’m on the interstate, I get so mad I just close it.
Great turned into a mess!!
by Protector 86 on 2020/05/29 13:25
Please FIX THE APP!!!. This was such a great app and now has so many bugs and it’s actually dangerous to drive relying on it. Bluetooth notifications are not coming through bluetooth devices anymore but from phone and it screws with my music. Notifications are also covering up important aspects of the map. Please stop over designing what was great. Thank you.
SLOW
by Ooollalaa on 2020/05/29 13:20
the app is incredibly slow and is unable to connect at times

Trash
by Brosmigo on 2020/05/29 13:05
Ever since google bought Waze they have messed this app up greatly so people will use their google maps. Sad how a big company can buy out the little guys to mess their perfect app up....it the world we live in though
No network connection
by girlishnegin on 2020/05/29 08:59
It doesn’t work and its about 1 week that its send me a notification when I’m opening the app “ no network connection try again later “ I dont know why!!!!
Ummmmmm wut
by brandon smtih gill on 2020/05/29 05:38
This was such a great app when it was first launched. It was so classy and super easy to understand but now it is so difficult to learn. When it says “Bug Fixes” it really means “let’s add more bugs” and the old Waze was so Beautiful 😍 but the new logo is like🤢🤮 please fix this stuff thx ☺️
No longer alerts
by MiDNiTe x SNaCK on 2020/05/29 03:44
Waze now will only notify alerts such as police or other hazards about 1/100th of the time. Stopped working properly about 2-3 weeks ago?? Doesn’t matter if I’m running it in CarPlay or not. Pretty worthless now.
Turn off location checking automatically!
by Photo-fiend on 2020/05/29 00:43
I love this app, but it keeps location services on, even when you have reached your destination and closed the app. At the top of your iPhone, you see the blue bar telling you it is still in use, (which is nice)..HOWEVER - , then u have to go to SETTINGS, find Waze & change the option to “never”, then wait for the blue bar to go away, then change it back to “While using the app”. Very time consuming & frustrating!!!!!
Road closures should be easier on the fly
by oneboyarmy on 2020/05/28 22:56
I don’t need the pop-up notifications for blasted railroad tracks. You have marked them on the map, that’s more than enough - especially in the areas where I live. What I do need is an easy way to tell Waze “NO” when I’m driving in an unfamiliar area and the road is closed. I don’t want some convoluted u-turn through a neighborhood to go back the way I just came because of a road closure.
App pretty useless. Slow and there is no sound now
by Acid998 on 2020/05/28 17:39
App getting slow to position and recommend route. Also where there are road blocks n other events on route u only know like a few hundred feet before. Used to be awesome but now juat getting bad Finally there is no sound while navigating even with the volume on max
Great if you like missing turns
by Natty1984x on 2020/05/28 17:38
The app often crashes when it’s in the background. You won’t know it either. Until you realize you drove way past your turn.
Sticks in car pool

Waze is crashing
by CustomerJeddy on 2020/05/27 23:49
Prior to now - May 2020, Waze has been my reliable goto app for Navigation, that belief is fast being eroded by the crashing game I’m experiencing right now! Please tweak the app! 🙏🏿
Broke Ford Sync Connection

Not working with CarPlay
by SkaterFh85 on 2020/05/27 21:02
No longer with CarPlay! The warnings don’t come up and if you go to another screen (ie music) you don’t hear the directions!!! Needs to be fixed!! Never had an issue until the latest update!
Was great
by Tankknight on 2020/05/27 20:44
No longer connects to my Ford ... ‘Waiting for Device’.
New update sound is messed up
by Empty Eye on 2020/05/27 20:02
I plug my phone and connect via USB/Dock Connector and it’s worked just fine until now. It stops my music playing and tells me about police/accidents and everything else through the phones speaker and sometimes doesn’t resume my music.
Worst navigation app
by scarfhero on 2020/05/26 23:17
Will take you around in a huge circle, instead of straight to your destination.
no voice directions when selected
by DK_TO on 2020/05/26 20:51
App is totally useless for voice. When you should hear “turn right” or “turn left” the voice in app is “and then.” And then, there’s nothing more.
Great app
by Anthonymhood on 2020/05/26 16:18
The app works great! I use it on my Apple car play, and was wondering if you plan to add support for the dashboard of Apple car play since Apple let’s us pick which app we want so see on our dashboard now?
Amazing - current version has issues with CarPlay
by Regis N on 2020/05/26 16:16

GEEAT APP!
by BigGoosy5 on 2020/05/26 15:52
My husband and I use Waze all the time. We love it but, it would be nice to get new mood icons. Also, when we search for things such as food, coffee, shopping, and so forth...it would be nice if it would only show us options in the direction we are going.

by jrap64322 on 2020/05/26 04:21
I use this app almost everyday and it is awesome. The way you can detect cops and share it with others is incredible. One bug I see is when i’m going somewhere, I click the direction and click go. Once it starts I click up to see each street and how far and the next street distance just shows how far you are on your own street. So you cannot see the distance of the next street.
4.62.2 is working fine using CarPlay
by Green Sub on 2020/05/26 02:54
4.62.2 is working fine using CarPlay on my iPhone 11, iOS 13.5, and 2019 Hyundai Kona. The only reason it’s not 5 stars is the inability for Auto Map Display to work correctly. It doesn’t work at all with the Kona headlights nor with sunup / sunset.
Ducked off

If you see the police hiding somewhere mark them please cause I be speeding and needs a warning but it’s overall good with accidents and stopped police with lights on
Map not working

The map is no longer working and it only shows the written directions in a list
Love it this app
by DJ CHiNO on 2020/05/25 17:07
Great app but the new Update pauses my music. It should be a feature
Truly messed up now
by NanoDude on 2020/05/25 15:08
I don’t know Who sabotaged The Code for this app, but it’s the worst now. I’m sure the percentage of U-turns has increased exponentially. The instructions come way too early and I would highly recommend going with another GPS
No sound
by QNetSo on 2020/05/25 14:10
Sound is currently broken in so many ways. If i open the volume control the volume level bounces around on its own for a while. But no matter, the loudest setting you can barely hear in a quiet room with the volume all the way up. That is unless you connect a Bluetooth device, then the sound plays through my iPad speaker at a decent volume... of course that’s wrong too... Also don’t require me to create a google account to report a problem :)
No more speed cameras ?
by SimbaNY on 2020/05/25 12:46
I used to love this app but I’ve realized that we are no longer able to add red light and speed cameras ? Why would such a useful tool be taken off the app? I’m giving two star until this feature is added back!
Great app. But....
by Dormie77 on 2020/05/25 11:41
Waze really is a great driving companion app. What would make it complete is to be able to add additional specs for vehicle and towing such as height, weight and length. Then have Waze calculate the best routes with those criteria in mind. We have a large fifth wheel trailer and need to use a truckers gps app, but would rather just use Waze.
Need lane guidance
by dddddddddddd4532 on 2020/05/24 23:53
The Waze app developers seem to have abandoned innovation and are now just phoning it in for ad money. Looking at the screen and trying to figure out what lane to be in is so dangerous to do while driving. GPS systems have been doing this since it was invented, why not waze. Add lane guidance guys and start innovating again; the app has not had a serious upgrade for many years now.
App no longer has sounds on CarPlay
by Bailey1814 on 2020/05/24 23:42
Tried with two different iPhones. Sounds, including street names, alerts, and turn-by-turn directions. Google Maps and Apple Maps sounds work fine. Disappointed in this.
Used to be great

Wazetastic
by 01TDA on 2020/05/23 15:36
This app is fantastic and I’ve used it for over 5 yrs now. My only issue is that sometimes it takes you through subdivisions or off the route *** when I know you can go straight through. Not sure why, yet it still outweighs others!!!
Put Notifications Back On Top
by FL Storm on 2020/05/23 14:26
Put the notifications back on top of the screen, or at least give us the option to choose.
Alert confirmation needs updated
by Lrwp on 2020/05/23 13:12
When an alert pops up and asks you confirm if it’s still there, it’s asking too soon. It disappears before you can even get close enough to see when the view isn’t straight ahead. It should allow you to confirm/deny until you’re just past it.
Problem with the latest version!!

Update is horribl
by Sararyan44 on 2020/05/22 23:59
I love Waze but since this latest update it is terrible. The distance between turns is way off causing me to miss turns and the volume is now messed up. Please fix the distance issue.
Can’t us the a

Crashing App!
by ColbyMD on 2020/05/22 15:04
I’ve tried to start Waze- and it flips saying I need to buy it from the App Store. When I try to do that it disappears and won’t let me open it. Rebooted my phone 2x and no improvement. What’s App?

Messing with audio
by Aqikhaki on 2020/05/22 04:50
My music’s volume no longer adjusts when Waze is running on Apple car play
It looks like is in lockdown due the COVID-19
by Rudva on 2020/05/22 03:02
This apps is really good compared with Google and Maps (which is the worst). But it look like the quality is going down, lately too many wrongs routes, last second instructions, not viable routes to reach the destination and today... lost the GPS connection and not even restarting the smartphone and location feature makes it work.
Crashes often...
by xbsussh on 2020/05/21 22:54
It’s completely unacceptable for a navigation app to crash during a drive to say “uh oh. Cannot find route” Google maps works flawlessly, and saved me today in a directional standpoint when Waze had failed. Also, for the short time that it worked, the fuel stop function was completely useless. Only gave me options that were towards the end of my route. I wish I could give this zero stars...
Removing OK Waze is dangerous
by tomnevers on 2020/05/21 20:58
I have enjoyed using Waze for a couple of years. Recent updates have left me unable to help other drivers, though. I receive warnings about hazards, police, etc., which is great. But now that I have to touch my screen, I won’t be able to alert other drivers. This is because 1) it is dangerous to have to find the icons and select them 2) it is illegal in my state to do so. Also, the alert banner is now at the bottom of the screen, so I can’t see it very well. Lastly, if someone else is in the car with me and is able to respond ‘yes’ to an alert (meaning it is still relevant), the option goes away too fast and they can’t respond in time. Sometimes you can’t see the event or object until you are on top of it. And I really would like to helping others like they are helping me! I hope you consider these observations for future updates. Waze is really useful and could be even better.
It force quits now
by Miles Drake on 2020/05/21 20:42
Whenever I try to launch the app it force quits now won’t even open up has Spotify connectivity issues and the routes aren’t fast and efficient to beat the traffic it used to be amazing having this app driving through the Los Angeles streets the app isn’t what it once was.
Problems w/ Apple CarPlay
by makeup_gal on 2020/05/21 20:37
Overall useful and helpful app, but when I use it with Apple CarPlay the volume maxes out so low and it doesnt increase. So I cant use the app with playing my music on my phone🤦🏻‍♀️ If Im doing something wrong, please tell me!
No longer offers shortest routes
by larveys on 2020/05/21 17:00
I used to love this app as it consistently offered the fastest routes with least amount of traffic. However, over the last year or so, I have noticed it will direct me towards routes that are busier and not necessarily shorter. I think they would prefer that their users stay on the most trafficked routes that are rich with gas stations, restaurants, etc in order to satisfy their sponsors ($$$$). Bummer.
Recent Update Broken with SYNC 3
by Braxton M. on 2020/05/21 16:29
Normally, I love this app, but the latest update does not allow me to change my music volume. Instead, I can only change “Prompt Volume”. I’ve been forced to uninstall the app until this gets resolved.

I just deleted the glowing review I had put here before. I got an iPhone8 for Christmas last December (5 months ago) and out of the blue the battery was dying quickly for no reason. I checked the usage and found that Waze was eating up almost all of it even though I hadn’t been using the app lately. I withdrew access to my location and to my calendar and anything else, leaving it nothing I have control over. That didn’t change a thing, it kept eating up my battery anyway. So now it’s gone.
No longer uses Bluetooth
by Miss the Edit Cartoons on 2020/05/21 00:22
Latest update has taken away Bluetooth connection to my car. App says it is transmitting thru car speakers but it isn’t. It does, however, interrupt my music which IS operating on Bluetooth & I often have to restart music. Fix this, please!
Turn by turn voice guidance.
by Fahim Adnan on 2020/05/20 18:31
Yesterday I drove from NYC to Pittsburg and notice that turn by turn voice guidance was not working properly. The voice guidance system just said turn left or right but did not mention the streets/highway/exits. Which is really annoying. I guess it is a new bug. And also my fav guidance voice; English (UK) Amy was missing from the option.
Garbage routes
by MPM110989 on 2020/05/20 18:13
I have been a Waze user for years. I am perplexed by the routes it has been taking me recently. They make no sense and then the app has been struggling to keep up with the direction when I need to make turns and it tells me after the fact. Unfortunately deleting.
Daily Crashing App!!!
by FlaGirl13 on 2017/12/16 06:04
Funny enough, A cop friend of mine told me about WAZE! And normally, I LOVE your App, & have Used it DAILY for a couple of years or more, MAINLY to find the SHORTEST ROUTE TO WORK, & Later HOME, & of course to check Road Conditions. I’ve told many of my friends, & patients too, what a great, informative App, Waze is!! There were a few bugs w/the previous update; where the screen flips back to friends, or to types of hazards etc., as you’re driving down the road Trying to follow your GPS Map. But the Most RECENT UPDATE IS GARBAGE!!! Maybe it has TOO MUCH on it? When I open Waze, & try to pick my destination, it flashes a mssg that says “UH OH! YOU ATE NOT CONNECTED. CAN’T CALCULATE ROUTE! W/a green button to click that says OK..., then it crashes (goes black), or it immediately crashes as soon as you try to open the App, & then it just closes the App. UPDATE: We, (hubby & I), along w/many others), have NOT BEEN ABLE to USE WAZE for ONE WEEK Now, b/c it keeps crashing!!!!😳😤 I’ve had to resort back to Google Maps. PLEASE FIX! No-one has contacted me. Many of the suggestions are great, but I espec like the ones about enlarging the speedometer, & one touch reports! (For safer roads)! Once you’re used to Waze, (when it’s working), it’s hard to do w/out. I have REBOOTED my iPhone several times. I’ve now become dependent on your App, w/all of the traveling we do! PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks for all you do! 😃. Respectfully, FlaGirl13
Battery drain, several issues
by EmilyJumpsHorses on 2018/07/06 13:17
The battery drain when I use Waze is unreal. I was at 43%, opened Waze & drove for about 12 minutes, decided to add a stop. I looked at my screen and the low battery 20% alert was up!! All of my background apps were closed, and there was no reason for my battery to plummet that quickly. Sometimes my app won’t show my icon but shows the “shadow” of where it’s supposed to be. Another issue is that it doesn’t show all routes. I know a certain route isn’t normally the fastest, but I also know my city’s traffic patterns and it won’t show it. Also, I’m in the top 1%, but how do I know when I’m getting close to losing that prestige? How do I see if the population is catching up to me? Finally, the fact that it doesn’t tell you whether your destination is on the left or right is so irritating and basic that I’m shocked it’s not a feature. I wish there was a feature where you could customize which “hazards” to voice prompt. For example, I couldn’t care less about a car on the shoulder ahead, and it’s annoying to have my music interrupted by that stupid hazard alert. But I would want to know if there’s a pothole ahead, an object in the road, or a police reported ahead. Create a way to narrow down the voice prompts! Why do the other Waze avatar icons around me never move? Speaking of Waze “people” icons, please come out with more options!
Was GREAT....Now it doesn’t work 😖
by AshEBom on 2018/01/21 16:36
I had been using Waze for about a year and LOVED IT!! But since the most recent IOS update, it continually is “searching for GPS” and looking for language (I still speak English 😉). I went to my cellphone provider, then Apple, and logged off of Waze to see if the app would reset itself and be fixed. This didn’t work. I even did a total reset of my phone, and nothing worked on Waze and Google (who owns Waze). I then contacted Waze, but got nothing but constant/obvious automated answers back that stated things to do that I already started I HAD ALREADY DONE and listed in my email. This is upsetting since other competing GPS apps work on my phone, so it’s not anything on my end. After a couple of weeks, I did a web search to see if others had issues or could help me. Interestingly enough, I found out I am in good company, sadly. Please Waze/Google, it would be greatly appreciated if you could actually get this obvious bug fixed. Your app was wonderful, but I’m sadly happy to switch to another app to at least get me to places. No, the other apps don't have the accident, police, or other very helpful perks. I just can’t stand diving “approximately” or now the map keeps me at the beginning location and has no idea that I have already driven and arrived at my destination. Beyond frustrating. Again, please send out a fix! 🔨
Die-hard Wazer!!!
by Andrepimarlucatom on 2017/10/21 15:22
Update: Waze updates have been good and the reporting process is improved and there are less steps to get to the actual reporting - yay! When you fix the default address estimation from interstate (literally I get suggestions for MI addresses, and I live in Alexandria VA!). Previous: I've recommended this app to dozens of friends and helped many download it to their smartphones and set it up for them. I can't say however that I'm very happy about the latest version of Waze. The GUI is not what it should be, the # of improvements is about equivalent to the # of detriments. It's hard to cancel an instruction once entered, the screen going from side to side is not user friendly. And reporting hazards is STILL a 2-3 step process!!!! There should be the option for active wazers to have a "visible police" button, "car on shoulder" button "construction" button and/or various traffic buttons of our choosing on the map page that we can report as we go. Also, PLEASE STOP SEARCHING THE ENTIRE MAP OF THE USA WHEN I'M OBVIOUSLY SEARCHING FOR AN ADDRESS IN MY LOCAL VICINITY. That was an obvious upgrade improvement you guys should have included. I would give you 5 stars or 10 or 20 because I love your app - but these improvements really need to happen ASAP. Keep up he awesomeness Waze!! Plus your Customer svc and responsiveness is great too!
Most useful but some issues
by Smiledaydream on 2018/06/03 09:20
It is the most useful of the navigation apps because it uses the most sources for information and does a great job helping me navigate. Directions are given in a way to help locate the turn or offramp. Other apps often change suddenly into step-by-step directions or some form that I do not want to see. Waze stays consistent in the format of the split. Waze has a number of notifications about things in the road. These are good but also have weaknesses. It is hard to report that something was not accurate. At the point it is supposed to be there the option to indicate it was incorrect goes away. This option should remain for 2 to 400 feet after the symbol location. Most hazard reports are inaccurate. Most police reports are incorrect. This is frustrating because it such a good idea but the tool doesn’t really allow for good reporting. Stopped vehicle reports do not indicate in lane or side of road so they are usually pointless viewings of vehicles stopped somewhere having no affect on traffic. There is a great feature to go later on the time this feature cannot be used for some reason I will choose directions to the airport. Half the time I can choose go later and half the time for the same trip I cannot. I know the data is there. But for some reason the feature just vanishes. Make it easier to report.
Don’t Leave Home Without It
by Als2130 on 2018/12/07 12:33
This app has saved me so many times. I absolutely love it. I use it constantly, mainly because it alerts me to traffic and cops, but also because it has shown me shorter ways to places I go to all the time (and thought I knew the best route there). I only have two complaints. The map change suggestion feature is totally useless. There’s a road near me that’s a private lane and ends at one curve of an s-curve. Waze always tells me to use this road for 100 feet, then get back on the main road. No, the private lane ENDS at the main road! I’ve tried changing this a dozen times, and it never gets changed (once it was actually, but a week later it was back). I’ve learned to ignore it, but I feel sorry for tourists because they get confused (I can tell they’re using Waze when I’m behind them because they’ll slow down and sometimes stop, which is really annoying). My other complaint is that I can’t tell it to remember certain routes. From my house, there are two ways to the county road. They’re both the same distance and about the same driving time. The difference is that the one Waze always tells me to use is single lane partway, very narrow the rest of the way, and has a lot of hidden entrances and blind hills and curves. I’d much rather take the safer way. If Waze finds a way to fix these two things, I’d give it 5 stars
Better than the old CB days.
by Depdoc on 2018/12/27 15:26
Waze is a user based traffic information app. It does rely upon users to report traffic conditions, construction, accidents and police. As a user passes by a reported problem, he can say Thank You, indicating the condition exists, or No longer There, indicating it has been cleared. There are two things I’d like to see changed: 1) allow the time to respond to the condition to last longer. Sometimes, the actual condition is at a slightly different place due to the time lag between where the incident is and when it was actually reported. and 2) when reporting police, it would be nice to know if the police is moving or stationary. If moving, the radius for notification should be extended and the time to clearing shortened, as a moving car will not remain in its position very long. If stationary, then notification can remain as it currently is. If police is moving, it would also be nice to know which direction and then adjust notifications accordingly. Note these are suggestions and not complaints. This is a great app and a must have for any driver. It also has a pretty good navigation system. But if you select another route than it gives you, it is slow to recalculate and sometimes requires stopping the navigation and then restarting it to get the alternate route.
Good at knowing where traffic is AWFUL at getting around it
by LordLombardi on 2018/03/14 23:53
You wanna know where traffic is jammed? This app is wonderful for that. Want a route around? Avoid Waze. This app is useful for for ETA’s if you sync with your calendar, and to show you where traffic jams are. However, expect it to always take you through traffic jams. The most use I’ve gotten out of this app this app during traffic hours (aka the time you would most want to use this app) is zooming out to see the full map and then seeing myself how to get around the jam. Without fail, if I’m trying to get home from work, Waze will want me to take a Street that I know for a fact will be jammed. I decided to follow the directions twice thinking maybe Waze was smart than I am and knew something I didn’t. Both times I was backed up a solid mile before where Waze thought the real jam started it. And I’m talking I was in bumper to bumper traffic waiting for the light to turn 3 times before I got past a single block. Despite this, Waze insists this is the fastest route — it’s not. Waze also becomes unresponsive to traffic reports during peak hours it seems. You could report bumper to bumper traffic in a downtown street and Waze will only mark the small section where you are even if the jam stretches 10 minutes in front of you. You would think it would gather that you’re in a bad jam and find a different route, but it doesn’t. Your best bet is to zoom out the map, and try to find a better way yourself.
Great nav app... BUT
by DL1771007 on 2019/09/24 18:03
I’ve been using Waze for quite a while. However in one of the recent updates there are some problematic issues that need resolved. First and most important... waze now announces “hazard” ahead instead of announcing construction ahead, car stopped on road ahead, pot hole in road ahead... etc etc. because it only announced a “hazard”, one must now look at the phone to figure out what the hazard is... this can be a safety issue. It was much better when the announcement stated exactly what the hazard was, therefore one could stay focused without having to look at the phone all the time. Another change in a recent update is the new female American English voice is very annoying!! Please go back to the original voice... it was much more pleasant and natural sounding. This new voice is not very friendly and on a long drive it’s quite irritating. Overall it’s a great app that has saved me time and gas getting from point to point. The rerouting around traffic jams and accidents are nice, identifying traffic cameras, speed limits and current speed, etc are all nice features not found in other applications. Keep up the good work Waze... but PLEASE fix the “hazard” warning (by going back to the way it used to be) and change back to the original American English voice. Thank you
Incredible resource
by Noa and Grandma on 2018/07/20 15:29
I am delighted by the services provided by the Waze app. On the first day I used it, it took me by previously unknown routes to a bakery to pick up a birthday treat for my dear daughter with 5 minutes to spare through rush hour traffic. The second time we used it we were at a huge airshow just outside of Portland OR and Waze saved the day by taking us back to Vancouver, WA on a very quiet and beautiful twisting country road through rolling farm land that ended up bringing us into Portland by way of the St. John's bridge. We were astonished to find that it took the same amount of time it would have taken us to go on the highway on a low traffic day. We were sold on it through these first initial encounters. BUT, my third use of it made me recognize how incredibly valuable and up to date it is it is when my destination was 2 blocks away from a bank robbery in progress and it diverted me from my normal route down narrow side streets where multitudes of cars were coming in the opposite direction but I seemed to be the only car going against the flow of traffic. Waze kept me safe and away from gunfire that was occurring just a block away from my final destination as bank robbers tried to make a getaway. Thanks Waze and thanks to all you Wazers that keep this app up to date so consistently. You rock!!!
Useful but NOT safe
by EDazey on 2018/02/24 19:57
I like Waze for navigation; it has some good aspects over other map apps-I like that based on the day and time that I open the app it predicts where I might be going, I like that it chooses the shortest route and is always right regarding my ETA, I like that I can send my ETA to any of my contacts so they know when to expect me, and I like that if I try to access the search function while in motion it says this is unsafe and asks if I am the passenger. I DON’T like that all other uses of the app while in motion are extremely unsafe. To document police, accident, stalled car, road closure, etc I have to take my eyes off the road to navigate through all the prompts which is exactly like texting and driving, I DON’T like that there are ads that pop up anytime I am going less than 5mph-my husband has them pop at highway speeds! We need a paid version of the app!! Also, the see other people on the road function does not work well. There are many times I see other icons when there isn’t even another car around or my husband is using the app in his car ahead of me but I don’t see his icon. Also, beeps are not useful. Not only is it unsafe to get in and access the beep function, it serves no purpose. Once you accept them there is no history and no way to tell who beeped you. Like I said, I like the app for overall navigation and real-time ETA, but otherwise it needs some serious updates.
Not good (especially with Apple Car Play) but has potential
by FrPoupart on 2020/01/03 14:04
I’ve been using Waze For carpooling since September (four months now) primarily as a driver. I am glad it’s been launched and I have some constructive feedback. The app has changed and is not working well with Apple Car Play. It will not allow me to access messaging feature while when I arrive at the pick up point and I cannot end the carpool for several minutes until I exit the car thus making the whole process a nuisance rather than a seamless experience. The carpool features should be available on Apple Car Play. Additionally, 1) there are way too many buttons to push as a driver, thus causing significant distraction in the process; 2) the fact that there are two apps (driver and rider) is significantly confusing to me and everyone whom I’ve ridden with; 3) the app’s design to protect privacy is the rider makes pick-up locations that are totally illogical and make no sense (like the middle of a freeway, just as an example); 4) the app biases their rider, rather than an equal approach for both rider and driver (if the rider sets a time, the driver cannot suggest an alternate) so there should be a reschedule button; 5) the app is simply NOT elegant and modern looking, it is clunky and the buttons to move between screens are hard to tap because they are so small. Other than these issues, it’s a valiant effort and I applaud the Waze and Goggle teams for trying to crack this nut. It is something the world needs.
Used to be so good
by Debest74 on 2019/02/07 02:01
This app used to be so good but for the past few months is just not working. At this point i open it for police reports and use google maps for directions. I go fairly frequent to Las Vegas from California. Lately the directions won’t load and when I do get it to work it routs me completely out of the way!!!! Google maps tells me it’s going to take me about 4 hours with traffic and Waze is literally making me turn around/make a U on the 15 when driving from Vegas to take a completely obscure way adding 3 hours to the rout. The last straw was a few weeks ago driving from California to Las Vegas. At first it wouldn’t load so I went to the Waze support area and it advised to break down the trip in chunks so I decided to have it navigate me to the outlets in Barstow since I pass them EVERY SINGLE TIME. Somehow it took me trough a back way and trough a town name Crestline, up some mountains in the middle of no where and by the. It was pass 12am!!!! A 4 hour drive turn into an 11 hour drive!!!!!!! If anything happened I would have been royally effed in the middle of nowhere. This weekend I went back to California and decided to try again thinking it was maybe a problem that day. Once again it kept routing me trough some weird areas turning a 4 hour trip into 7. I had my girlfriend open her Waze to compare and Hers was working perfectly fine and using a complete different rout than mine was and about the same one as google maps.
Doesn’t work well with iOS 12
by serickjr on 2018/10/05 02:21
Update Oct 3, 2018- We’ve been using Waze for many years and have always loved it... until iOS 12. There has been so many issues with it freezing, crashing and interfering with the built in Bluetooth in our car. It will completely cut off the Bluetooth in the car making it completely useless. We deleted the app for a while because it just didn’t work at all and redone loaded it after some updates were released after iOS 12 was out for a while and that’s when the Bluetooth issues started, needless to say we deleted it again. I’m very disappointed, we used for every drive we took, even up to the grocery store 2 miles away. As you can see below from our first review we absolutely loved it... But sadly, not so much anymore. I really hope that you’re reading these reviews and doing something to fix these issues so we can start using it again! Since Google owns Waze I Would love to see some of Google Maps functions integrated into Waze. Other than that I have no complaints except the occasional outage, but we've been using it since it came out a few years ago and have loved it from the beginning!! Keep up the good work and get some of those google map features carried over to Waze!!
The coolest App to discover a stocker who is tapped into you by staying close
by mefreesea on 2019/09/24 06:22
I love this app simply because of his style and I like way to look at our worsening traffic situation all across or length it's no longer our grandparents freeway gone are the days of leisurely drive and pleasant afternoon behind the wheel now driving Siri is business and not to be left that at all so Waze shows it other ways to use this app Multi platform use an informational stack to assist with around you at all times need to come to that oh my by that I mean the dreaded stocker the one who just won't leave you alone and must bother you in any which way they can interesting that avatars have now become avatars maybe that's a new word car the tatf. but for later next line recently I've had that displeasure of finding that I to warrant a sucker and I only found out because Waze showed me that my stocker was never far behind have a virgin ever prime ever trying to communicate the Daniel benign idiocy of their plate In stocking me it showed me how to stock them and soon as you might imagine the police were involved and well wouldn't you know it my stocker became a shocker who ended up in the slammer known as the locker and there you have it my happy story brought to you by the way thank you Stucker free
Just install and use it. Always getting better. A few improvements requested.
by Casual game player on 2019/06/27 12:00
Great features: best routing around trouble I’ve ever seen around the most up to date traffic information possible. The audio app integration is a neat addition. I recently upgraded my phone and it uses the additional screen space effectively. Changing the voice for directions is great. Loving the validation Cookie Monster provides at my destination! Could be improved: Pandora integration makes it look like you can change stations or thumb up/down from within Waze but it doesn’t actually work. Needs to include Audible and Podcasts apps. If I take a shortcut through an alley or start out in a school parking lot, Waze seems to really lose track of where I am and is in recalculation mode for miles at best. Sometimes I have to kill it and start over to get it to tell me where to go at a critical junction. Nit pick: Routes could better predict drive times based on historical data. I drive from Illinois to Missouri in the St. Louis area every day. That means picking a bridge over the Mississippi right at the start. I-270 will always jam up in north St. Louis County after I leave my house and take 5-10 minutes longer than Waze says on a GOOD day. They aren’t all good days.
I don’t understand the hype...
by amc135 on 2019/06/05 22:04
I’ve been using Waze consistently for about a week and a half. I’ve always used Google Maps, but heard a lot of hype about Waze and thought I would give it a try. Each time I used it, I would plug the same address into Google Maps to compare routes and arrival times. Many times the routes were the same, and if they weren’t, Google Maps always had a faster arrival time or the quicker ability to see ETAs of other routes. Today when I left work, the ETA on Waze was about 5 minutes faster, so I decided to take that route. Google Maps added about 10 minutes to my ETA when I veered off onto the Waze path, but I thought maybe Waze had data that Google did not. It turns out they do not. I sat still in traffic for 10 minutes. Maybe other cities are more accurate, but Google Maps undoubtedly has better traffic data than Waze in the Cleveland area. I guess it is moderately helpful to see hazards on the road, but that’s pretty much the only feature that I like. Also I recently started seeing ads as I was driving? I understand that you need money from advertisers, but to darken the screen to push an ad and make me unable to see my driving route is very distracting and I’m always scrambling to get rid of it, pulling my attention from the road. Maybe have ads on startup or while users are not en route to a location. Overall, I think I’ll stick to Google Maps.
Better than most
by stanwgg on 2018/11/27 14:56
I’ve just begun to use the app. I like the fact that it alerts you when the police are near. It also notifies you if a car is on the shoulder of the road stopped. It has a background music feature which would be nicer if it included Apple Music or Pandora. The app warns about road work, traffic jams, it is nice. It is slow to sync with Bluetooth. I can sync my phone with my truck, yet the app does not speak through the Bluetooth connection. It is difficult to communicate while I’m giving and address for directions the first time. It is hard to hear because it will not use the iPhone speaker in the beginning either. I have to hold it up to my ear while giving the first address. Shortly after the first route begins it will use the Bluetooth connection. The graphics are much better than the iOS app and also Google Maps. The screen view is also better than other apps. Seems more intuitive than either of those GPS apps also. The app is slow to turn off the location services on my iPhone after I reached the destination. This concerns me that it might run down the iPhone battery prematurely. It does have a nice parking feature to locate your car later. Fix a couple of small things and it gets 5 stars from me. This is my new GPS app.
Florence Evacuation
by Peach11111 on 2018/09/19 16:12
WAZE IS AMAZING. Thank you sooo much whoever created this APP. I am home safe because of this APP. I can not praise you enough. Hi everyone. Right now I am so thankful to be home. We evacuated to Concord and was there from Wednesday the 12th to Tuesday the 18th. We knew our home was alright but you know you need to see it for yourself. We left Concord at 10:30 yesterday morning along with our two puppies. We used our GPS on hour cars for a good ways. We ended up in SC at South of the border. This was also with the help of a police officer and a local resident. But with all of this and trying to get past the water flooding was daunting. My sisters we watching out for the whole way. One of them told use to try the app “WAZE”. I downloaded it to my iPad. I am here to tell you we would not be home today if it wasn’t for this app. It would even tell us about a vehicle parked on the side of the road a half a mile away in the dark. It is amazing. She only made two mistakes but that was because road block had just happened. I highly recommend this app. Everyone stay safe and God bless all the lineman, police, EMS, firefighters and anyone else I have not mentioned that are working so hard to keep us safe and getting our lives back to normal.
Great app but has definite shortcomings.
by Duncapa on 2018/05/30 13:26
Waze is my #1 choice for GPS. Live traffic updates, being able to edit traffic conditions on the fly to give a more accurate commute, and sharing routes and eta’s are great features. I do hope they integrate voice commands with Siri so we can say things like “Hey Waze, drop a stopped vehicle pin.” While we are driving so interaction becomes handsfree and safer. I gave 3 stars because there have been repeated issues with the app and service saying “No GPS available.” I have tried rebooting, deleting & reinstalling, and clearing the app cache on my phone as well as making sure iOS and the app are updated constantly. But the occurrence does not appear to be linked to hardware failure unless it is something inherent to the 8s. Google and Apple maps do not have any issues when this occurs so I’m at a loss as to what causes the issues with Waze. This occurs for about a 8-12 hours once a day, once or twice a month. Not the end of the world but heavily inconvenient when you regularly use the service for your GPS navigation (and it’s a great service) and you are on the road daily for 4-6 hours at a time it is a problem. If they could fix this problem and integrate voice commands for pin drops, this would be a hands down 5 Star app. Hopefully I’ll get some feedback and can continue to use the service.
Hate to delete this navigation app
by zerodivin3 on 2018/02/22 10:14
But for a long time now, probably almost 2 years (I know, I’m faithful). I’ve realized this thing eats up SO much data. I run out of 2 gigs in less than a week on long drives. I love everything about it (especially hazardous objects on road and police), but it’s missing an important feature I’ve secretly been waiting for that google maps has and that’s the whole standby screen to save battery and phone from heating up. Many times Waze redirects me from traffic which was cool, but then I realized after a couple times, I actually lost time AND gas because of it due to stops and whatnot instead of just sitting in traffic. Not that it hasn’t helped at other times, but I’ve learned that most of the time the traffic it predicts has long dissipated (so much for “live”. Overall, it’s just been getting worse and I’ve thought to delete this app a long time ago if it weren’t for the social part, but then I realized all my friends haven’t touched it in forever and I only use it to share with my wife who doesn’t even realize I send her ETAs anyways till I’m already there and she calls me to ask me if I’ve arrived lol. It’s been Waze, but ultimately, my data is more important to me than the 80% ghost police notifications and my safe speed limit travels.
Vacation Travel SOS
by Gwennz on 2017/09/16 04:59
Due to a Cat 5 Hurricane Irma and Cat 4 Jose which caused destruction and total havoc in the Caribbean our well-planned trip to Grenada (a year in the making) was cancelled after 3 hrs. of wishful thinking and 2 wks. of monitoring NOAA and the weather channel several times a day. With our flight cancelled and at JFK hrs from home we decided to just turn in our tickets for an impromptu trip to San Francisco which was on our bucket list. We flew in without any preparation more than finding a last minute deal on a downtown hotel for 2 nites. We rented a car once we spent a couple of days in San Francisco. If not for my WAZ app we would not have been able to do half of what we did! It got us to our 2nd location a rental outside of San Francisco and on time! It took us to Big Sur via Rte 1, all around Napa Valley, and adventures that took us to views of the Golden Gate Bridge that only locals get to see. With the app we were able to find our way to impromptu routes that took us 2500 ft to an observation tower that blew our minds. The app regularly saved us from excruciating California traffic jams by re-routing us and is amazingly good at time estimations. We are most appreciative for this app. Thank you for helping us explore gorgeous Northern California.
Awesome, but latest rev draining battery!
by Harumph99 on 2018/12/24 16:15
Love this app and use it all the time. Routing seems to favor getting to bigger roads rather than using local roads for short trips, but otherwise works decently to get around traffic. One thing to watch for is I think it treats a right turn the same as a left in traffic, when often a left is nearly impossible to cross 2+ lanes of traffic rather than just entering 1 lane. Rel 4.46.1 is having a crash issue — after 30-90 mins it’s crashing. Also seems like it’s failing to add some previous drives to the history. Had one drive that was done and I’d arrived but when i went to history to go there again, I had to re-enter the address because it was not in history. Also, it's damned annoying that I registered with my cell# years ago but replaced my phone a while back and had to rebuild the keychain and I didnt remember my password. Unlike 8million other apps that have a forgot password function, WAZE says it's impossible to recover my password without having already registered with my email. A) that's stupid! B) tell me that when I registered years ago not when it's too late! I lost wazer royalty status and havent even bothered to re-register out of bitterness! Serioisly, guys, you have my phone#! Text me with a password reset link! It's not like there are bank accounts at stake here!!!
Avoid traffic via alternate routes
by Angelitaackth on 2019/07/22 21:16
This app is great for finding alternate routes. It uses up my battery though. Please give an option to have It search for my location only when I am using the app. When I close the app, it doesn't need to keep track of where I am anymore as I am likely not driving. I find that this app gets me places more quickly while avoiding traffic. It needs a little more fine tuning, as it put me in a no outlet street very close to the back end of my destination. I had to drive away from that point and the-input the address to get to the front end, but that worked. It was beneficial that I already had a sense of what the place should look like. I like that it recognizes "streets" in some major parking lots. That was a pleasant surprise. :) I wish there were a way for it to show how much time I save by going the alternate route versus the normal highways. UPDATE & REQUEST: Yay! My battery lasts a lot longer now. Thank you for addressing this issue. It would be great if there were a button to notify others when there is a train crossing (and recommend alternate route or option to wait for train) and the same with drawbridges up (I live in a city of bridges so this is quite valuable info and is not the same as slow traffic).
Stunned!!!
by siri713 on 2018/05/31 19:17
Huge shoutout 2 Waze & ALL Waze users in Richmond VA (and all tri-cities) 4 how live this app truly is. TBH I had my doubts! But you have definitely made me a believer of the amazing accuracy! Each time I’ve used waze & there’s an alert of police, debris on road, & car on shoulder etc...it was at a💯! So I 👏🏼 U & All the Waze users! I ❤️@waze & will recommend 2 everyone! I will most definitely consider giving waze 5/5 stars ⭐️ if you guys would take all the users suggestions that I’ve come across & actually make it happen in a more timely manner. I also have a suggestion myself. CAN YOU PLEASE ADD more options on vehicles to choose from (or be able to change the color of the vehicle by being able to hold the vehicle down and choose a different color) on the navigation map? Also, make the vehicles you have available actually look like the description of that vehicle? For example: The SUV looks like a dump truck, the bus...well there should possibly be two types of buses (make them both longer & make one yellow), and as I’d stated before have different color & size options for the cars, & make one for an actual SUV with different colors. I really hope you’ll make these changes. Once you do, I’ll be more than happy to give you a 5/5.
No customer support at all
by Techie! on 2018/05/10 00:15
Customer support is an automated email feeling you to refer to the troubleshoot section. A section that I have read so often looking for me resolution, that I have now memorized it! Simple issue - I lost my password. Password reset help allows me to put in my email address. But I do not receive any email to reset the password (tried numerous times). So now I think that I may never have registered my email on Waze. And my only option is try to create a whole new profile. When creating a new profile, I want to register my email (which I don’t think I did in the initial profile since I am not getting the password reset email etc). When I try to register my email in the NEW profile I created, Waze won’t allow it and says ‘email already exists’. So if the email already exists, why doesn’t Waze send me the email to reset my password on the old account to which I lost the password? IF MY EMAIL IS ALREADY REGISTERED WITH WAZE, WHY WON’T WAZE SEND ME A RESET PASSWORD EMAIL? OR ALLOW ME TO SET UP A NEW ACCOUNT. I have only one email address!!! If it is in use on the old account that I locked myself out of, either allow me to reset the old account or allow me to set up my new account with my email address. Simple!! Why is it so difficult?
One of the best if not the best GPS apps
by Mlightning1 on 2019/04/23 12:38
Basically my title summed it up. The Waze app is one of the best if not the best GPS app available to the public and amazingly free I shouldn’t of said that too loud I don’t want to give them any ideas. I just moved into a new home in a very new subdivision and ran google maps,Bing maps,maps and a couple of others none of the other GPS apps could find my new house but guess what the Waze app pinpointed it directly took me right to it! Seriously though the Waze app gives you real time information as it is occurring due to the fact it’s interactive with other users. Not only do you get directions from point a to point B Waze gives you a choice of three different routes and you choose the one you think would be best tells you the time it would take to do it how far it is tells you what obstructions you might encounter along the way. The app allows you in real time to post accident stead of just occurred where police are hidden shooting radar tells you what speed the traffic is moving in a traffic jam it’s a pretty accurate app as long as other users are updating events as they occur. To sum it Up the Waze app is outstanding
Not very good anymore.
by Impost0r on 2018/10/06 19:12
Every time I set a long destination (over 100 miles) it gives me the stupid... uh oh something went wrong message when attempting to set the route. It literally leaves you with no choice than to use another GPS app if you need the info, like right now, as is usually the case if you need it to actually tell you how to get somewhere. You seriously need to fix this ASAP! I’m considering deleting this app now as it has become very unreliable to me at this point. It works ok with showing road info, but I need to know how to get there when I really use this app seriously. Also, it would be nice if it told you about alternative routes that would be faster if you encounter traffic. It also doesn’t show surrounding road traffic until you get on a road and find out it was equally terrible with traffic. The surrounding traffic it does show is usually not consistent with the surrounding roads one might travel. It would be nice to know before I take an alternate route if it also has terrible traffic. This app used to be a lot better. Now it’s pretty close to being bloat-ware. I want to love this app again, but right now all I ever do with it is curse at it for being so terrible in its current state. I’ll change my review if they can fix it. Please fix this app. I used to love it, now I just can’t recommend it to anyone.
WAZE is my road buddy.
by GypsyDArtist on 2018/08/31 16:27
I really like the WAZE app. I use it all the time. It is great for turn by turn audio directions that keeps me hands free. The learning curve is fairly easy and the app features and interface have been consistent which is great because having to learn new and improved stuff while actually driving isn’t the best. I frequently drive up and down the whole west coast and WAZE is a lifesaver for re-routing around traffic jams and knowing what the speed limit is in an area as they seem to change a lot. ** The reporting system could be streamlined a little to make it easier to report the most common incidents on the home screen and the detailed hazard reports do not allow for some common issues: people on side of road, weather issues that impact safety/visibility like severe rain/lightning/ road ice and to easily report changes in speed limit signs. It would also be nice to be able to mark a hazard location when “out of signal” that would pop up when reconnected. **We really enjoy the occasional “guest” reporting voices ( Star Wars, Cars, Coke Santa) it would be fun to do the same and have some seasonal options with the Wazer profile avatars too! Overall WAZE is my road buddy and is my go to app. for driving directions.
Getting a creeping feeling...
by MuchHate4Apple on 2020/02/24 03:20
I’ve used Waze for years and loved it, but I’ve started becoming suspicious of some routes it takes me. I use it just about every time I drive, even when I know where I’m going, for traffic updates, cops, etc. Lately, it seems like Waze tries to force me onto main roads when backroads are a much better option; even in the dead middle of rush hour when I’d have to make a left turn off the main road, without a signal or stop sign, against pure gridlock. Meanwhile the backroads are light with traffic at best, and much faster (and arguably safer). I’ll point out, while these backroads are residential, they aren’t neighborhood roads or anything like that at all. With all that said, I can’t help but get the impression Waze is diverting me towards companies who advertise with them. This wouldn’t bug me too terribly much if it weren’t for sending me directly into heavy traffic, even if just a quarter mile or so, when I know it’s going to take much longer to navigate through it than the couple extra minutes Waze estimates. I can’t prove it, so I’m not saying I know this to be true. What I can say is that this used to never happen, yet seems to be an ever increasing occurrence when I use Waze now. It’s starting to make me reconsider its value over Google Maps.
Needs Improvement
by Yosuke Matsumura on 2018/11/28 04:03
CarPlay support needs attention. The dictation of destinations is flat out broken. If I’m playing music or podcasts in Overcast, it won’t even pause it when listening for the voice dictation. Even worse, even if no audio is playing, the app says it’s “listening” but catches nothing. The feature is useless. Reporting stuff takes too many taps. There are basically 2 things that get reported 99% of the time - police and car stopped on shoulder. Why can the police report be done in 2 taps while the stopped car takes like 4? Why does it take the same amount of taps as roadkill? Siri Shortcuts integration is BADLY needed. It’s the best way to gain back some functionality since you can’t set default map apps in iOS. “Hey Siri, Waze to mom’s house”. PLEASE!! Turn tracking. When I come to a turn, please just assume I’m making the turn and rotate the map when I get to the intersection. I know the GPS needs some time to verify that I’ve actually made the turn, but waiting 3-4 seconds for the map to recognize that I’ve made a turn is bothersome and sometimes very annoying if I need to make multiple turns in quick succession. If the app would just assume the turn is going to be made and preemptively rotate the map, that would be awesome. (Like the native Apple Maps does it)
Sad
by Scottie NH on 2018/12/16 22:17
This used to my best way of avoiding traffic as I commute in the busy Boston area. Worked great until a little while ago when it stopped working. Now it sends me weird ways that are NOT avoiding traffic but instead turning me in to it. Ironically (or not) it seems to be pushing me lately near shops and businesses that I visit online which makes me believe that it is pointing me towards Google's sponsors and are tracking the sites I visit rather than helping me avoid traffic which was the original intended purpose. This is further cemented in my mind as the app is also showing ads for places I frequent. I'm not even one of those paranoid people who think that everyone is watching their every move. My point in this rant... Get it together Google/Waze. I loved this app once. I would even be willing to pay for the service if you got rid of the ads and got me to my destination the fastest way. Oh! And I have also proven my point by sometimes ignoring the turn you want me to make knowing there will probably be less traffic and watched my arrival time get quicker and quicker. End of rant. Five Stars again when you put the drivers first again rather than your sponsors. Edit... Now I really wish I could give 0 stars. No response from developer on this nor to my support request through the app. So... Thanks for not getting back to me and you have lost yet another user... Wake up Waze!
I can be a FIVE STAR App!
by Scrapbookaz on 2019/11/12 20:15
This app can be a five star app. Granted it’s new and growing. But, the directions are not always exact. The notifications on traffic, things on the road, car pulled over, accidents, police near by, red camera alerts are amazing!!! This app can be five star when the directions to some areas are corrected. Even when submitting a notice of an address that is incorrect is some times difficult to fix. These addresses are confused with streets that are similar in name. For example, Moreno is the correct address vs. Mereno which is also a street and is not correct in pertaining to the location I need to go to. I have had it corrected by another Wazer, yet is reverted back to the wrong name of the street. Those are the frustrations I have. I notice it more on some addresses being incorrect based on, that I am driving a lot. This app is great for keeping you aware of where police radar are being seen by other Wazers. The Wazers are what makes this app so useful and fun to use. Such a wonderful idea and to make you aware of traffic locations, slow downs, standstills and much more. I really like how the blue circle gets highlighted around your car on the app when you have driven into a radar area. Love this app!
Using Waze for 6 years.
by waldron77 on 2018/09/18 16:18
I’ve been using Waze for about 6 years and there have been a lot of great improvements in that time. I only have a few gripes about it atm. First off it’s kinda annoying when it automatically navigates you to a location like your home. I do not have a normal commute being a contractor. So I head home at different times in the day. So what happens when I’m entering a new address to drive to it interrupts me when I’m still punching the address in. At times I’ve been mistaken when the address I just entered was where I was heading, when in reality it had already decided I wanted to go home. I wish this function was optional! The second issue is waze will take you to the completely wrong location because it didn’t find the address you where looking for so it will say let’s go and when you get close it’s just the street and not a house number. Or it will add a NE at the end without you noticing it. I’ve spent a lot of time having to navigate to the right address using google or Apple maps. But I continue to use waze because it is helpful in the city getting around wrecks and jams! P.S. it destroys your battery life! Absolute must to have it charging while navigating.
Great app
by Bb2132 on 2018/04/07 19:06
I gave this 4 stars only because of how many times you have to press something to report it. I quick button or favorite would be great. Example: I live in a very rural area. I use this to mark deer on the roads for my coworkers that are behind me. I have to press 5 buttons in order to mark them. It's a dark and winding road with lots of deer so this is dangerous or it takes a while for me to get it marked. A quick button on the map screen for animals on the road would be fantastic. When I see a deer, I can just press that button and boom, it's done. Of course this could be a customization for people and maybe have a couple spots for quick buttons. That's just one that I use very often (10 to 15 times in 25 miles). I know others have their most frequent buttons they use. Two or three buttons across the bottom or left side would not hurt anything. You can even make them smaller like the size of the compass. P.S. if points are not accumulating, write a review and they will appear. I’ve done that twice. lol Waze, what is happening with the points? They have it updated in a while, again. Come on Waze, I live for these points! I live for these rankings. I need updated!!
Mostly Good Navigation, Interface Problems
by HomerIII on 2017/09/20 12:14
I switch back and forth between Waze and Google maps, often comparing routes. While usually similar, Waze seems to be better on avoiding problems and using real-time traffic data. However, it also has an annoying bug — occasionally it will take you off the most direct route and send you in a large circle, ending back on the main route close to where you left. I’ve seen this happen when it was clear there was no reason to make this detour because I could see that the main route was clear far ahead. My other gripe is that lack of control over the interface leads to annoyances. While you now have more control over what problems it reports (finally, no more “car on the side of the road” alerts!), it seems to ignore the setting for distance, often reporting “Police 25 miles ahead” when they aren’t even on your route. Also, while the speedometer is very useful, there is no way to change the size or default colors (white below speed limit, red above), so it is often impossible to read. Bottom line: worth giving a try, but don’t ditch Google maps, and watch out for occasionally nutty directions.
Waze has flaked out since last update
by want my privacy on 2018/09/19 22:46
I have always been a huge fan of Waze and recommended it to others on a regular basis. I would have given it five stars. But in the last couple weeks, as it seems since the last update, it has lost its accuracy. It is taking me into traffic jams on a regular basis and redirecting me when there is no problem as I can see the freeway from the new route & it is traveling faster than I am. Warning of hazards has diminished in accuracy also. There has always been a problem with Waze sometimes not giving enough notice to get off the route when there is a problem I had resulting in me losing the opportunity to avoid the traffic jam. I have never understood this issue because when I’m on a route and have to make a turn ahead, Waze alerts me incessantly about the upcoming turn. This is particularly irritating when it’s a route that I drive all of the time. I thought Waze was supposed to learn about my usual routes. It also does not seem to learn that I have a preference for a different route in my neighborhood and is always trying to redirect me to its route which is not any faster and has some other shortcomings.
Generally good but can be slow & ads are distracting
by Lolkat12345 on 2019/12/24 03:29
First, Waze has been generally more accurate than google or apple maps, so I would still recommend it over them. The distance from your location to a turn is much more accurate and doesn't make it look like it's significantly farther, which is a problem I've had on other apps. My two issues though: Speed to update route: when I've missed a turn, the app takes a LONG time to adjust the route, often telling me to take turns on roads I've already passed. Recently had a drive where I would pass a road and it would then tell me to turn. I've also had connectivity issues when in areas that still have strong phone service. Ads: Large pop up ads that dim the rest of the map. This is VERY distracting when driving - and very dangerous for drivers! I don't love the pop ups in general even though I like the warnings about cameras/traffic. This catches your eye while driving when you don't expect it and I can easily see someone getting distracted enough to crash. PLEASE change this or find a way to make it less distracting to drivers - it's simply irresponsible in the way it's implemented.
Definitely the best
by Nicci5 on 2019/06/27 15:41
This app gets me everywhere I need to go. I use it daily for almost every trip. I have Apple Carplay and all I have to do is say, "Take me to ______ using Waze" and it launches and starts to give directions which is perfect for when you're already driving and need to head somewhere else on the fly. I have 2 minor complaints. 1) Waze tends to learn my routine and automatically programs itself to take me where it thinks I needs to go. Normally this is great but there's been times when I've asked to go elsewhere and it's logic had overridden my request. For instance, I asked to go to somewhere on a vacation day and it started directing me to work. No fun!! Lol. 2) I love using the voices. Cookie Monster is great. But, there are times when you don't want the interruption, just the onscreen directions. I wish that the onscreen mute button was simply on/off. Instead it takes you to a new menu to select alerts only or to mute everything. I've NEVER wanted alerts only. If anything I'd want the opposite but would much prefer a simple mute/unmute function. That way I don't have to have my eyes off the road to mute/unmute. Please correct this!! Otherwise though, it's the only navigation I use.
Used to love waze
by tracikout on 2019/04/05 05:28
I’ve had waze for several years now. I’ve seen a lot of changes and improvements with the app. Now I use waze all day everyday with my delivery job. I totally depend on waze helping me get somewhere in the most efficient way. Plus it is powered thru my work app so all I have to do in my work app is tap “navigate” and I don’t need to type in the address. It’s great. However for about the past month I have been running into major glitches. One is that I tap navigate and the app just spins, never pulling up the directions. I have to kill the app and start over. The next and most frustrating is that waze has taken me on some complete, major circles. I’m somewhat familiar with my city but need help in neighborhoods so I can USUALLY catch the runaround before I actually drive a complete 10 mile circle. I thought it was just like from over using the app or something so I switched to google maps. Didn’t care for the visuals of it BUT I absolutely love that on google at the end it will actually tell you your destination is either on the left or right. So to waze....please please add that feature to your app!
Not the app it once was
by fifffer on 2018/10/30 09:12
This app used to be the best bet for beating horrible city traffic, finding the best routes for long drives, and optimizing efficiency on city-street-drives. But very recently, within the last few weeks, I’ve noticed that when I need to go anywhere more than 30 or 40 miles away (sometimes less) especially during rush hour or peak traffic times (which is when you need the help the most), the app gives me errors messages like “unable to connect to routing server” or “something went wrong” and it just won’t calculate my route... AT ALL. I’ve actually had to resort to using the native Apple Maps app on my phone lately.... and that was something I abandoned like three years ago. Waze, just last year, was able to route an inter- state trip I went on, with no problems. Now it can’t even get me to the next city over during rush hour. Hey Waze executives... INVEST IN SOME BETTER SERVER FARMS!! No one cares what you can do at 3 AM or 12:15 PM... you need to work at 7 AM and 5:30 PM. If you are falling victim to your own popularity and success (aka, you can’t handle the traffic on your own network, no pun intended), then either upgrade your infrastructure and bandwidth, or bow out and let Google Maps or Apple Maps take over.
Cookie!!
by MyReview867 on 2019/06/12 02:09
On a whim, we decided to let Cookie Monster be our navigator. We laughed our butts off when he reported police up ahead, and if they’d like a cookie. It’s a little weird that he will mention kilometers and miles in his descriptions. The app is iffy on whether or not you can hear navigation over the music. I’d like for my music to be turned down a bit, instead of the directions competing with my music. Also, if I’m on alerts only, I’d like to know if there’s a faster route or ways to avoid a traffic accident on my route, since I’m not watching my app while driving. I would like to see an update where it tells you which lane you’ll need to be in, either for getting off the highway or to prepare for future turns. Like get in the right of the two left turn lanes because you’re going to turn right pretty quick after that. And also, if you sync your calendar to Waze, there should be an option to say “I want to be at my appointments 15 minutes early” so you don’t have to adjust your calendar entry and try to remember what time your appointment actually is. Small stuff, but I think it’d be helpful.
Annoying additions
by Brayster15 on 2019/06/06 02:24
Overall, a good app; however, lately advertising symbols continue to populate the map. Driving past an area that has a lot of fast food places will populate the map with advertisers such that it actually crowds the map. Like ai need more ads. It just makes the map look way too busy when you’re trying to glance over to check out where you are in your route. Additionally, and just as annoying is that they have added your speed to the map which turns red even if you’re exceeding the speed limit by 1mph. If that’s not already enough to annoy someone, every few seconds a large red speed limit flashes alerting the driver they are exceeding the speed limit. It’s completely annoying! There are few if any drivers on my commute that adhere to the speed limit and doing so may put you at risk of getting rear ended considering most are driving at least 15mph over. The point being is that this sign flashes continuously every few seconds during one’s commute and is annoying especially seeing it for well over an hour every day. I don’t need this app to be a babysitter alerting me constantly that I’m exceeding the speed limit. I am considering switching back to Google maps.
Update:Used to love this app. Deleted it.
by Greenie mama 65 on 2019/02/14 04:29
Review Update: I saw new update and reviews in app store and decided I’d reinstall the app to see if it improved. IT STILL TAKE YOU TO THE WRONG DESTINATION!! What the heck are the developers thinking?? They have ruined this previously wonderful app. Last months review: I don’t know what happened to this ex-wonderful app but I’m so angry I’m deleting it. It recently was unable to get me to my correct destination. I actually missed a house concert yesterday because I could not find the location. I followed the directions and it said I had arrived at my destination when the address in front of me in a residential neighborhood was clearly NOT what was programmed into my phone. I reset several phone setting and tried again. I reentered the address and it sent me to an empty office complex parking lot. Turning location, Bluetooth, cellular and WiFi on and off had not solved the problem. I rendered address after uninstalling and reinstalling the compass. I ended up at the first incorrect it sent me to. After wandering around for almost two hours, I got back to the interstate and went home without the use of Waze. I never got to my house concert where I was supposed to be contributing a dish for everyone’s dinner. I was unhappy when all the ads started popping up but tolerated them. Now I have no reason to ever use this app again.
Makes driving more difficult tbh
by lattjkkogcd on 2017/12/22 23:49
My first problem with this app is that it would change routes on me all of the sudden, it was frustrating and I don’t need that kind of distraction - you can’t expect me to keep my eyes glued onto my phone to watch if it changed routes. Like at least let me know before hand that the route was changed. I deleted the app but then decided to give it a second chance because I like the community aspect of it. I like how it told me what areas were slow, where construction was, where police were, as well as comments from other divers. While driving I came across an accident, traffic was slow because they closed down a lane so I decided to report it... only to come to find I didn’t know how to. I obviously couldn’t take the time to figure it out since I was driving so when I got home I figured it out. Apparently you can only report an accident if you are in the area..... AND driving. Why would I try to report something while driving? Sorry Waze, I gave you a chance but I like to drive safe. Only way I could see this being a good app is if you’re driving with someone else who can do it for you or if you let us report things when we’re not in the area and not driving .... and let us know when you switch a route for god’s sake
Tremendous!
by SanDiego1986 on 2018/07/13 16:47
It’s beyond user friendly and all of the content is submitted by users. You can report literally any condition on the road. From downed power lines, major accidents, and all the way to road kill. You can also report a problem with the map (like I did) and someone will actually contact you as to what the map should look like. I reported a problem with the way my neighborhood was mapped because people kept getting lost. Within 24 hours, a map editor got in contact with me. I was even able to send him a video of how my neighborhood is mapped out. He took that video and compared it with satellite images and he fixed the issue. Now, people will be led to within five feet of my front door instead of across the street. You can also chat with other drivers. If there is an accident and you report it, you can add a message on it saying which lanes are blocked. Everyone can see that and it has also been known to help emergency responders get to an accident more efficiently. I’ve had it for nine months and I’m STILL discovering all of the stuff Waze can do. And the best part? It is 100% free.
Getting on the right track!!
by Blessedfe on 2017/11/30 12:30
This app has potential to be amazing!! Thanks for listening and making the change for location to be when in use! I have seen a few mistakes in destinations, such as being on the wrong side or one or two streets up but not sure how to fix those. Is there a tutorial? Also have moments when the voice commands are late or don’t work until you are going the wrong way. I can deal with all that! What is most frustrating is the fact when I prepare to drive and put in a destination 12 hours away, my daughter’s college, it thinks then says router failed and so I have to put in a city halfway there and then my original destination. Tried troubleshooting once but was asked for coordinates that I didn’t have. I would also like the option of choosing a route. The alternate routes feature doesn’t always work unless I drive that direction first. I should be able to from my city unless it’s way off, pick whether I want to travel I-29 or I-70 to some place... But fret not with all my concerns! I regularly recommend this app!! I just give them the waze (see what I did there) that I know to get around the hiccups of it! Thanks!! 🚗
Ford Sync Integration
by theBrknSystm on 2018/05/17 15:03
Love that I can now project Waze right on to my big screen with Sync 3. However, it seems like I often have to close the app, disconnect the phone then re open the app are re connect the phone for it to work. Otherwise on the first attempt when I launch Waze on Sync 3 it just sits there saying waiting for the device indefinitely. In addition, the performance is rather sluggish on screen. Attempting to report anything or do a search on screen is painful. So you end up closing the app and doing it on the the phone first then re launching the app on Sync 3. So I'm really hoping to see a performance improvement as the integration matures. My only other complaint would be that unlike the built in system navigation that can utilize the whole screen, Waze feels scrunched as to leave the system navigation buttons accessible at the bottom. Likewise when on the home screen the built in navigation gives you a mini map but when Waze is running you just get the Waze icon until you click it. I'm assuming since it's a third party integration there may be nothing that can be done about that but if it could that would be awesome.
Did Waze lose the way?

I’ve been a daily user of the app for 6 years. 1) At some point over the last 2-4 months Waze seems to have slipped on reliably finding the fastest route. It used to be that I could practically never pick my own route that would beat Waze’s ETA. Then overnight the algorithm seems to have broken. Now I can often shave minutes off by taking a side street around a traffic light that is always backed up or something similar. I just passed up my exit in favor of a different route and shaved 4 minutes off my trip to Houston after Waze recalculated. All through June I played a game with my daughter on the way to summer camp: How many minutes can dad shave off of Waze. On the 19 miles to Camp, my average was 5 minutes, using the same shortcuts 20 days in a row. YOU’RE LOSING WHAT MADE YOU BETTER THAN APPLE AND GOOGLE. My guess is in an effort to streamline the algorithm (to save computing cycles due to an explosion of user load?) you’re ignoring some potential routes and you’ve lost something essential. 2) Bring back fastest/shortest. It matters for people driving electric vehicles. Or create an EV mode that will help minimize total kW used from A to B. It also matters for motorcyclists who’d rather not get on the 80mph Texas freeway.
