Still missing a few fundamental things for Android Auto but is otherwise a great GPS app. (zoom/font issues, not using car gps/data, unable to navigate tunnels, no lane guidance, if you leave the map screen waze AA loses GPS position ) but it seems that the developers are listening so this might be a 5 star soon. Personally I'm also missing send E. T. A to a pre set favorite when driving. Select several gas station brands as favorites Setting each navigation as private or company trip for easier management on mileage Full Review

I like the 'little' improvement of the report ballons that is noticable to the Wazers. The yellow coding for traffic is visible anytime and I don't know when the light traffic coding occurs. If I will wait for the next update to have light traffic bar in "Traffic" report, it would be better. Please make the roads even smoother (not having jagged segments) so that the movement of the map is real. And also all maps have lane guidance, telling what lane you will enter before the exit, except Waze. Maybe add the lane guidance, so that the Wazers will avoid in getting lost or wasting time of longer drives. Thanks and keep it up! Full Review

I really like the app and much prefer it to Google Maps - it's interesting, fun and clearer to follow with different voice options (Boy Band LOL) I also like the fact I can see other people with the app, on the map, and potentially message or virtually 'beep' at them. It's a bit of fun. However, after over 200 miles of driving it says I have 0 points, and cannot see where my miles are clocked up, so this was quite disappointing for me. Full Review

This app is almost there! The leave later part where you plan when you want to arrive by no longer works it just shows a blank screen. I liked this because I can plan all my daily journeys . The other feature is the teams. There is only one available and I don't know what it's for but it changed nothing. Other than this a great app especially when you need to divert Full Review

Used this vs a few others and this won hands down. Will say my biggest issue is the lack of options to help change map. My town has many diffent streets all with their own speed limits and when I try to sudjest edit it says for whole town. Not sure if that just a default message or not but still. Also the limits never changed. Full Review

Awesome GPS app and it works excellent. The best one so far. I would give it a 5 star but the only issue I have is the white turn arrow in front of the big blue navigation arrow that covers the main direction-navigation line. It makes it harder to see where you suppose to be turning left or right. Have to look further onward to see. I would suggest Waze to remove the white turn arrow altogether to make your turn more visible on the map or change the color to something different than white. Besides that, the best GPS app out there and I've tried many of them. Will update it to a 5 star once they remove the white turn arrow or change the color altogether. Full Review

Somehow I keep coming back to this app after trying any other - both free and paid. It is probably one of the most convenient UIs for a GPS app, and it knows things that others don't. Now that roaming costs in EU are gone, Waze is even more attractive. It does lack a couple of nice features though - like lane navigation. Hope to see it one day... Full Review

It's a wonderful app and I am definitely giving it a 5 star without a doubt. Let's hope it gets better and never go down. I want to suggest one update. Can you update the app so that it shows how many exit a particular roundabout has which will help the drivers in choosing lane it will save us drivers being horned at by other drivers for sudden change of lane. It will also be very helpful if the app can suggest the best lane to be when coming to a roundabout like how google map does. Full Review

November 17, 2017 update: latest release has some nice fixes but the change to the banner (when following a route) when in horizontal node is a mixed blessing. It has been moved to left of screen and enlarged. So turns and alerts are easier to see. It also means vehicle placement is now at right of screen reducing how far to the east you can see (when in lock north up mode). Seeing ahead to the west is also impacted when there is an alert. Since I always use lock north up mode, and generally use route in horizontal mode for EW and vertical for NS I'm not a fan of this particular change. Full Review

Like it better than Google maps; I like setting up the reminder and go time too. Accurate, lots of cool stuff. Sticking with it, has many helpful functions like traffic, accident, etc. However, it does take you on tours of neighborhoods when all you have to do is turn around. Can be a little slow on the direction. Full Review

Pretty good nav when it's working properly and the gps can actually locate me. Lol I've missed at least 2500 bonus points by my little triangle bouncing around the map like Nightcrawler. I know it's not my phone because google maps never has this issue. Hopefully this is a fixable issue. I really do love using this app. Full Review

it worked great for a few cross country driving trips last month, but now it continues to say my account is lost in the stratosphere and all my info and planned trips are gone. I tried reinstalling but it doesn't even navigate across town, it says unable to communicate with routing server! going back to crappy Google maps at least it works. Full Review

Sucks for stops you need to make en route. You can't choose a destination from the map, you have to try to figure out the address from looking at the map and then go back to the address listings to choose, all of which is no fun while driving. And it does not hesitate to take you BACKWARDS in your route rather than suggest the most efficient location based on your final destination. Full Review

Fantastic at navigating routes. There's always multiple route options as well. The boy band voice option makes the drive a little more entertaining. My only complaint is the amount of ads. I had to dismiss 4 within less than 15 mins. Good thing I'm a passenger so it's not distracting me from the road. Full Review

How did this get ranked #3 behind Uber and Lyft!? Uber and Lyft drivers use this App. At least all the drivers I have talked to including me. And the ones who don't use Waze probably don't know any better, lol. Best navigation app out there! The only thing I can think of is that this app would be better with the lane arrows like Google's navigation app has to show what lanes to be in. Full Review

This has changed how I drive! I no longer stick with the same route, regardless of traffic, because I don't know if a different route will be quicker! Listening to traffic reports on the radio is not nearly as accurate as this! I use this for everyday travel & out of state travel. I'd be lost (or forever stuck in traffic) without this!

I would love the app except for one major thing. I use my calendar regularly and often enter addresses. When I have Waze as the default map it opens then always gives an error that the app only works on trips lass than 1000 miles. None of my trips are anywhere near 1000 miles. I then have to go back to the calendar to get the address and manually enter it in Waze. Way too much trouble for me. Full Review

I have been using the app for some years, and allowing for some odd routings, it has been great. However it is such a battery hog that my car charger cannot keep up. I have reverted to Google maps and TomTom speed cameras, as running these two apps my phone recharges in the car. The only way I can get the phone to recharge or even maintain the charge is to use a mains fast charger and an inverter! Come on guys! Full Review

THE LATEST UPDATE BLOWS. I've been using Waze since 2012, on multiple phone models. In previous versions, all 3 route options were visible on the screen. In this update, I now have to scroll down every time I want to see the 3rd option. Worse yet, I keep getting this error message: "No GPS. Showing approximate location" and the screen freezes a lot. I've already missed multiple turns because the app keeps losing connection with the GPS receiver. This is very annoying and UNSAFE. Please fix. Full Review

Great navigation with fast routes. I like the fact that there is a voice that tells you and shows you where there is a problem on the roadway. I was using this to get to a job interview yesterday and was pressed for time, there was a traffic accident ahead of me and this gps immediately rerouted me another direction so I could avoid it. I got to the place within minutes of closing. Full Review

Favorites not showing up in Android Auto. Destinations in Android Auto are a must. Home and work location trip timer miles countdown on the home screen with cards. Google maps has home and work and announces if traffic is light or whatever. This would be without the need to use navigation. It does no good to use navigation for your daily point A to B daily rides to get the travel times. Full Review

Used this 3 times. Once going to NJ - unfamiliar territory and it took me all over local towns which was unnecessary because there was no highway traffic. The other 2 times it took me in circles and tried to put me back on the highway going back the way i started. Thankfully i was more familiar with the areas i was in and i didn't fall for it.

I have waited a long time to review this. Waze takes some weird routes that aren't always the best choice. I appreciate the traffic alerts though. 4 stars only because of the odd route directions. 5 stars for being 10 times better than Google maps and a billion times better than Apple maps. Full Review

Great concept but missing some key components while also being a bit buggy; please add the ability to set favourites (such as hidden police) which can then be selected in one or two actions. I also have an issue with my weekly report being incorrect as I generally add at least 4 reports a day yet my weekly report never displays more than 3. It would also be nice if the user could check the individual stats for each report made. Full Review

Waze is fantastic. It takes you where you want to go in the quickest amount of time. It makes me angry sometimes when it won't let me navigate while I'm driving but it's great that the creator had my safety in mind. I love that we as a community assist each other with hazards, police, etc... I have all my friends & family using Waze Full Review

The general idea is fantastic. The voice commands are not as advanged as Google map. I also cannot load the app in Android Auto! I have followed the instructions on the web, but clicking on navigation for the second time in Android Auto does not ask me to choose between Google map & Waze Full Review

Best Nav' App for driving ever! Wish it would take care of bicycle riders and pedestrians, too ;) Still, I take one star away, 'cause once in awhile, quite often actually, it shuffled the hell out of my favorites, throwing the most used to the bottom of the list and promoting to the top-most position the same waypoint I only recalled twice, years ago! Every time I rearrange the favorites, and after a few days, once again I have to go through the whole list to find favorites I use every day!!! Another star I take away because it always takes me to the back of the building at the specified address! Once it even took me to the parallel street behind the building, where there was another address with another building, not some rear entrance to the building at the specified address!!! And the streets are one-way, opposing senses; fortunately, I kinda knew my way around the neighborhood, though I don't remember all the street names ;) Full Review

Awesome App!! Gives best directions with real time updates! Lets you know if a better route is available saving you time! Also lets you know about alerts such as police, if they are hidden or out in the open, construction, cars stopped, accidents & obsticles/potholes in the road so that you can be on the lookout. Updated by users so you are always on time. Ive learned new routes to go & even has an alarm to let you know when its time to leave to get to an appointment! Schedule drives ahead of time and save your favorite locations!! I'll NEVER use another GPS system again! Thank You WAZE DEVELOPERS!! Full Review

How do I set it to the nearest store to me. Wishing the turn time on the screen would be faster. The turn time isn't that good when looking at the map I've had to hard brake quite a few times because I think the turn is later. I love being able to do updates. Customers love Santa Claus. And I love the speedometer indicator. I'm hoping for more character voices for the next holiday Full Review

I'd give it a 5/5 if the bloody thing didn't crash half way through my trips EVERY time i boot the app up. I had this problem on my Galaxy S5 and it's still happening on my new S7. It may be conflicting with Poweramp or Spotify. I hate realizing that i missed my turn by 5 minutes only to risk getting fined by police to boot it back up again. It also needs to speak the directions WAY faster in city areas. Edit: doesn't crash so long as the display is on Full Review

The app use to be great but now it doesn't give great directions and it doesn't give you the warnings until you are right on it or passing it. Wish it was like it was when it first came out it never had these problems. It doesn't even give me the right directions to go home like it use to it sends me down a dead end street. Full Review

Great app. Use it all the time. Better than Google maps because traffic is more accurate. Sometimes takes you through crazy back roads, which can be annoying but I guess it's the fastest route. I just hate stop signs d low speed limits in residential areas. Full Review

2/5 -> (The Good) Gold standard for big urban hubs (The bad) No good anywhere or anything else, like exploration or rural areas. (Very bad) Has Total Dependency on mobile data connection. needs tweaks like offline map, POI improvement, 3d buildings support , and more to be 5 star... Like all satnavs, useless for urban exploration without those. I cant use this app due to reliabilty in mobile signals, and its inability to show me POI during navigation. Really love this program, and frustrated I cant use it :( Full Review

interesting concept let down by users. I received a warning today of a stranded car which was in fact parked in a recognised layby. let's you know about road works when you are actually driving through them. Oh and one last thing. every day going to work waze gives me directions and everyday I ignore them because I have a Commute route. Full Review

I actually really like this app it has a lot of great features. Somehow there has been a change that I really dislike greatly. That would be when I open the app up it automatically, every time,but wants to set a route for me. I mostly don't use setting the route I just use it for General driving. I really would like to see that feature removed!! Full Review

None of the problems have been fixed. The older version had some features that got taken away, and you now are left with a lackluster version. Still too flashy. The color changes are distracting. Reporting options need to be updated. Will not allow you to update gas prices if they are not in range with their limits. Full Review
