Use this app anytime I'm on the road. Great UI and simple to learn to use.
Love this app!

I love how much easier it makes my commute and has routed my ways I never would have thought of to avoid congestion and get me were I'm going quicker.

Three weeks on back roads in Canada as well as threading through Toronto have made a believer of me. John Carr
Great app.

Together we are stronger, this the principle of waze. This software is feed by the community, when more member are online more accurate is the information, I recommend this software if you travel to Panama the country.
My best friend!

I have been using Waze for over a year now. Are used to use it when I would travel to a new destination or over a long distance. Did not make it a habit to use when I would run around town. However, I used it to make a trip to Arizona and on my way back through the El Cajon Pass Waze directed be off on a side street in the middle of nowhere! I thought the app was crazy but I did what she told me to do. Traffic is moving fine and I thought that it was wrong. I followed it it drove me all the way to San Bernardino really angry that I have followed her instructions. I found out an hour later that the pass has been closedown and my friends were still stuck in the past and we're there for hours! They did not get home until the early morning hours and I was asleep in bed. I will never again question Waze and I use it everywhere I go because she will read direct me when there are accidents, closures, any other items that would keep me from getting to my destination in a timely matter. Love this app, she has become my best friend! I think I spent more time with her that you're my wife and family!
Love the idea
BaronC on 6/26/2017
Great app idea. Very functional and largely well designed. If I had to give a nitpick it would be that I do not like the new pause audio feature. This is one of those things people really want or really hate. I won't dock it for that but if it were an option I would be over the moon.
Amazing app for travel
Kar850202 on 6/26/2017
This app is one of the best and very helpful for a long or short travel.
Great app!
Jms242424 on 6/26/2017
Has all streets.
Constant use of GPS
Ben_LB on 6/26/2017
I like the way the app performs, but there is no reason it should need my GPS system when I'm not using the app.
Amazingly accurate
LN birdie on 6/26/2017
Waze has never let me down.
Won't drive without it.
Itty Bitty Betty on 6/26/2017
This little gem of an app has kept me out of traffic troubles and saved me countless hours sitting in traffic.
A lifesaver!
Kombat_mechanik on 6/26/2017
I got Waze for my last trip to Vegas, and have been using it daily ever since. I love the alerts and the reasonable distance it has before the alerts happen. It's pretty great!
Great App
Kung_Fury on 6/26/2017
Great App. The only negative I dislike is that I have to take my eyes off the road to input live information to share with fellow Waze users. I'm still new to the app so maybe there's a voice command option I don't know about. Used it twice going back and forth from Jacksonville, FL to Dallas, TX
Awesome app
SuzKT on 6/26/2017
Gets you where you need to go outside if traffic jams and construction.
Smitty77 on 6/26/2017
Some impossible maneuvers aside, this app is great.
Great app
907Rich on 6/26/2017
I have had this app for awhile now and find it helpful on long road trips. Not only for the information and navigation provided, but also the entertainment and conversation that is spurred by using it.
Great app
F-Dizzy on 6/26/2017
Just wish it would keep interrupting me to ask for a review
Great app!!!
DreDog1129 on 6/26/2017
Great app, one of my favorite!!!
Love Waze!
PATeach12 on 6/26/2017
Waze is my favorite navigation app. In fact, it is the only one I use!
Great help
Tankman99797 on 6/26/2017
I think this app works much better than Google Maps. Generally gives me Shorter re-route then Google maps and better estimates of actual traffic conditions.
One of the most useful apps available
bbpoodle on 6/26/2017
Even on familiar drives, Waze helps us beat the traffic and travel safely.
Better All the Time
GrandpaYukon on 6/26/2017
Every time Waze routes me around traffic I am a little more book. It has saved me hours on the highway just in the last several months. Keep improving game you're doing great! 8 months down the road it has saved untold hours in traffic and just keeps getting better and better.
Best app
Kateh2o on 6/26/2017
By far my favorite map/directions. I recommend to everyone
Longtime user
Katshell on 6/26/2017
While I do like this app, I miss some of the older features... like how you could see all of police, hazards, etc. around you instead of just those on your route... sometimes police are recorded from the other side of the road, but would be beneficial to my route!
Apamago on 6/26/2017
The best navigation system, you don't need anything else, works around the world
Great app!
JohnSwa on 6/26/2017
Much better than all of the others!!!
I totally depend on Waze
Cerisecloche on 6/26/2017
Love this app, use it all the time.
Best GPS I've used
BeckyA787 on 6/26/2017
I love this app- always right on point. I'll never use anything else
Fix the bugs!
Liberiafinest on 6/26/2017
The app stopped working in the middle of giving a lyft ride not cool!!!
Thank you
Majabakrabba on 6/26/2017
Thank You Waze for making our drive through NY that much easier.
Amazing app
ZpeedVQ on 6/26/2017
Is the best app that I have used when it comes to maps. It really helps with the speed traps and the cops near you. The information is constantly updated by the users which means that it's extremely accurate. The more you use it the more privileges you get.
Pretty Good!
mixedbarbiexo45 on 6/26/2017
It finds you the fastest route(s) possible and lets you know when there is a cop nearby. It also lets you set a time when you want to get to your destination and sends you a notification when it is time to leave so that's pretty cool. One thing I'm not very fond of is there are some places that you can not find on Waze like you can Maps. Either way 10/10 would recommend.
I use it every time I am in the car
Ranpha on 6/26/2017
This app makes it so easy to get around, I love the traffic and routes, I find new ways to get where I need so even though I've lived in my area for 20+ years, I keep going down roads I've never been before.
Great App
JPH0000 on 6/26/2017
Only one I use
Better than a standard GPS

What an AWESOME APP!! I love it!! Always gets me around in the bad Atlanta traffic.
Best App for Navigation!
Rickcamry on 6/26/2017
Used in many metropolitan areas when traveling and gets around bad traffic situations and issues. Reports of speed traps and other is awesome.
Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz73 on 6/26/2017
Knows when traffic is bad and finds a better way to go.
Westoniana on 6/26/2017
Really really helpful!
Better than Google Maps
Bets56 on 6/26/2017
Great way to travel. This app gives you all the information you need when it comes to finding your way. Even tells you if there's traffic, an accident, etc.
Love this app!
Vesapgirl on 6/26/2017
I'm new to this area and my son told me about Waze. I love learning direct ways to destinations and also "scenic" routes. I don't use any other apps now, just this one!
Great app overall!
Zulily love on 6/26/2017
I have no sense of direction so this app is great. The only thing I've found so far I wish were better is that there are reminders too close to things like exits and turns. I end up almost missing them at times. But it keeps me on my toes!
Love consistent and reliable travel and go!
Dance choreographer on 6/26/2017
It is so nice to plan trips and be reminded when to leave based on the current traffic at the time. So far issues with GPS. Love this app!
The best!
Mr Kearney on 6/26/2017
Can't say this very often, but this app has saved me hours of time and allowed me to spend more time with my family. Thanks WAZE!
I love this app.
Cdizzle85 on 6/26/2017
I drive over 100 miles a day for work and I use this app everyday. I love how you can correct speed limits on roads and the ability to see and mark live traffic data. It's also updated all the time.
Most used app I have.
Pornapster on 6/26/2017
I use waze most everyday, but when I am in a new place, it is Soo critical, I don't know how I lived without it in prior years.
Excellent app
