Has Gone Crazy
ChucksReviews on 6/22/2018
Have used Waze for a while, but recent update has caused strange behavior. When it gives me directions, the directions on screen are intelligible, but the audio directions are coming out as gibberish. For example, “turn right onto IN-37” is now sounding something like “turn right into [gps coordinates]apos[more gps coordinates]dot google by [gps coordinates]apos[gps coordinates] dot google. Looking at the screen, it’s in plain English. Clearly, the Google directions are being interpreted literally and not as a data format that needs to be “translated” to spoken English. Glad I don’t have any quick turns to make. It takes forever for all of that gibberish to be spoken aloud.

Fix your app
Flat Matt on 6/22/2018
Good and bad
Max K 341 on 6/22/2018
Great app but it has taken me to wrong addresses twice in one month. Also when Waze is open @hey Siri” does not work.
Bug in the latest version mutes audio temporarily
Mtnagel on 6/22/2018
Ever since the last update, audio is muted for ~15 seconds when you switch to Waze. Please fix ASAP.
Great app but currently disappointed
Ike Colon on 6/22/2018
I’ve had this app for a little under a year and it has never failed me...until this last week or so. It’s like every time I open the app and click on the destination I want to go, it’ll say “Waze is connecting to GPS.” It’ll display that for about a minute then it changes to “No GPS connection available.” I have unlimited 4G LTE data, so I know that lack of cellular data is not the problem. This app is amazing but I’m sad I can’t use it every day anymore because of this problem. Please fix
Just deleted
epicwave23 on 6/22/2018
Approximately 4 months ago, the app began having issues. I would start a route and it would shut down 5 minutes in. It’s taken me on routes that were significantly longer than estimated. Following the apps navigation has added 15-20 minutes on to my evening commute. The estimated times in traffic are inaccurate by 5-10 minutes. The average speed on the roads making up possible routes are incorrect. I thought maybe the crashing issues were being caused by me using an iPhone 6 but I just upgraded to an 8 Plus a month ago and nothing has improved. I’ve deleted the app and will try Google Maps instead.
GPS not syncing
Johnny thinks on 6/22/2018
Since the last update my GPS has not been “synced.” It will show give me the route and my location on the map, but won’t show me navigation prompts. Very frustrating.
Waze. on 6/22/2018
Waze has taken us off routes and sent us through routes to avoid stopped traffic allowing us to arrive at our destination on time. Driving and Waze is right up there with you and your cell phone-can’t live without it!
New review
VANDELFXCKSOH on 6/22/2018
I believe the most recent update has a bug.. every time I tried to head home from jersey the app would try and find a route but within 20sec it would say UH OH and stop searching.. please fix this thanks
Don’t force to use Facebook !!
Henrysa on 6/21/2018
You can not send your ETA ANYMORE ! I don’t wanna use Facebook to connect and share my ETA .. used to be favorite map!! Not anymore !!
Still my go to however
Sharon_BD on 6/21/2018
Over the last year, my favorite feature: the ability use this app to estimate the best time to travel/avoid traffic is no longer working for 80% of my destinations. Very disappointing and looking for a new app to utilize.
JULYAhehe on 6/21/2018
Usually the app is great but lately has been crashing and hesitating on future directions. 🤧
Patricia💀 on 6/21/2018
I love this app!! I always get lost with my iphone map. But this app makes my life so easy... I really Love this app! Please I will love if you guys make this app able to used with my honda car!!
Waze to be in worse traffic
seattle0829 on 6/21/2018
Just took me a route that legit added at least 25 minutes to my drive. Complete trash
Over the hump. App getting worse now.
XmlJim on 6/21/2018
It’s official. Waze has jumped the shark. Hey CEO, did you know that you are over the hump. Instead of adding great features you nownhave nothing better to do than changing things for change sake and making things worse. You probably call it it “fresh” or some other meaningless term to keep your agile teams checking in code changes. Keep an eye out for the next new crowdsource directions app, cause waze is done and they will eat your lunch.
What navigation?
Jtranny on 6/21/2018
App fails to locate my location or when it does work it’s not accurate.
No car play support
Arch1angel on 6/21/2018
At title says, no apple car play support, as I use navigation when driving I am forced to use the apple navigation, as it project up on the screen in my vehicle. If this app did that I would use this app and give it a higher rating.
Won’t turn off using gps locator,
lgwildcat on 6/21/2018
Sadly while the Waze app functions as designed the GPS tracking device will not turn off even after you’re done using it that’s wearing down your battery please fix this Waze
Some probkems
Gilty1 on 6/21/2018
WAZE is a great app that I’ve used for years. Since the last update though, I find that I have to snooze it when not in use, or it eats battery life on my 6S Plus. Once snoozed everything is okay. Must be some kind of a bug. Please correct as it’s a pain to keep turning snooze off and on.....
Dangerous! Awful map app!!
Scott43435 on 6/21/2018
Pops up ads and prompts you must respond to during your trip. At the very moment I’m trying to figure out where to turn the screen is blocked by a ad or something. HOW IS THIS SAFE? I don’t want to take my eyes off the road for an advertisement!! Don’t use this app.
Loved this app until recently...lots of issues
pbzcurlygirl on 6/21/2018
I used this app religiously as it got me out of a lot of traffic situations, until roughly around February 2018. Suddenly it cannot connect to the network, it cannot connect to GPS services, it shows approximate locations, it sometimes connects then disconnects while I’m driving, and it also started to interfere with other GPS apps on my phone. I thought it was my service provider, but they couldn’t find anything wrong. I replaced the SIM card, but no luck. Finally, a guy at the Apple store told me this is a known issue with Waze so my best bet is to delete it. So I did. I’ll download it again when you fix it, but until then... 😠
Never cease to disappoint
Dabs as on 6/21/2018
Could’ve taken the normal GPS to my location. But I had the wise thought of downloading this app being an extra 30 minutes late. Thank you Waze for failing me.
polk1111 on 6/21/2018
The app doesn’t notify me of streets it says turn right in 0.7 miles well who knows when you’ve reach 0.7 miles. I need a street so I’ll know when and where to turn.
iPhone issue
E guy on 6/21/2018
For some reason Waze is way way too quiet while listening to music. Must’ve been the last update because I’ve never had this problem.
Leave it to Google
TOMMYYMMOT on 6/21/2018
Audible directions are so screwed up I don’t want to use it anymore. They now include code or something, don’t make sense and run on forever like a bad lecture. How could they screw it up so badly?
Needs work
Msvoy on 6/21/2018
Its great and all but there should be a way to tell the app that there is a road block safely so that it can reroute you. I was late to work bc I changed my route and it just took me in a giant circle. (It took me a route Im not familiar with). I was not happy. It can track my speed but not reroute efficiently.
What happened??
MoQzen on 6/21/2018
Waze stopped working on my car audio - silent interruptions, instead of a voice. Other apps still work on audio. The other day Waze had me go a ridiculously long and loopy way to my destination. First on the highway during rush hour and then had me backtrack downtown traffic, only to bring me to an address that was not my destination. It corrected itself after that. I was late. More than a few times Waze has re-directed me into horrible traffic. Alerts are not coming through, except for something on side of road. Something is wrong, please fix!
The best GPS there is!
Klee1646 on 6/20/2018
This app is perfect and never steers me wrong! I love the way I can view police and other obstacles during my drive.
Most recent updates ruin the experience
Pelzo63 on 6/20/2018
My wife and I have used Waze daily for at least 4 years. It used to be amazing. Due to work we are often driving home from distant locations over an hour, and we could share the drive with one another and see exactly where the other was. If one of us was overdue for arriving home on a late night, the other could look at the drive and see we were stuck in traffic. Not anymore, now my wife’s account no longer shows up on my friends list no matter what she tries to do to re-add it. She sends the drive to me as a “contact” but it comes via a text message, and when I click the link I get an error saying the user is not online. Sharing the drive used to be the one thing that kept us coming back. As a turn by turn direction app, it’s always lagged behind both Apple and google maps. It is only good if you have a good idea of the route to begin with, but google maps is much much much better if you’re driving in an unfamiliar location. Google maps gives you directions on which lane you should be in to make the turn ahead, Waze just says “turn left” and says it either way too soon, that you’re not sure which left, or so late that it’s too late. This was especially problematic in Washington DC, Pittsburgh, San Diego and Maui (near the airport). With so many roads so close together, you had to keep looking down to see if the road ahead was the turn, or the road two roads ahead, and it lags so much that it could even be the road behind. We eventually just switched to google maps for the rest of our vacations.
Apple Watch App
EricaRie on 6/20/2018
I love the functionality and user interface of Waze more than any other GPS app. However, I find I wind up using one of my other GPS apps more orb because Waze doesn’t have an Apple Watch companion app. The companion app is very handy because it vibrates uses various haptic patterns to notify me of upcoming turns. It even utilizes various haptic patterns to signify right vs left turns. I love the functionality and user interface of Waze more than any other GPS app. However, I find I wind up using one of my other GPS apps more orb because Waze doesn’t have an Apple Watch companion app. This allows me to focus more on the road and driving itself vs having to constantly check the iPhone screen for upcoming navigation changes. Yes I am aware there is an audible dictation feature. I simply prefer to listen to the radio when I’m driving.
greatest tunes on 6/20/2018
The app is super great it tells you every thing you need to know, like where cops are out where another waxers are ( a wazer is someone who uses the app) it b is a very good app for bad drivers to.
Kills your battery
Parker3743 on 6/20/2018
I love the app but for what ever reason, even with settings for “use location only when using the app” still accelerates killing my battery. I used it before with a different phone and it did the same thing. I tried it again on my iPhone 7 and by the end of the day, I had up to 30% less battery on my phone with no change in usage. No idea why this is happening but I had no choice but to delete...... again.
Never gets better
Frank31210 on 6/20/2018
I will uninstall this Navi because I tired of being sent into traffic. I thought that was the purpose, to avoid traffic. Google is simple. Bye Waze.
Pretty Bad
Christopher Carlson WI on 6/20/2018
This app could be great. If you have an extra hour or so to go in a circle when a direct route is possible. If you’d like to take a leisurely unexpected tour of a city you could easily go around using a real navigation app then use this. This app WILL let you know when there may be police near by... this could be helpful since you will need to ask someone how to get out of the mess Waze has created for you.
Doesn’t do what it says
Rpairan on 6/20/2018
Doesn’t send ETA even though it says that it sent. Doesn’t always update road conditions either.
What is going on????
P-Scott #1 Fan on 6/20/2018
Why is there always “something went wrong” now???
Unintuitive UI changes make it horrible to use quickly
BlueLiquidPlus on 6/20/2018
Recent changes to the UI has made it a pain. They moved the stop navigation button for no reason, which is adjustable but still annoying. The most recent patch added a commuter button, which would be fine if they didn’t put it where the navigation button was on the bottom right. I will never use the commuter button, and honestly the app is great otherwise... but the UI changes are getting really annoying.
Hate the latest version.
Wmm0114 on 6/20/2018
Restricting my “friends” to Facebook users is the stupidest update ever. I don’t want my FB friends being able to see my route, I want my husband to see it. Now that we cannot see each other’s location on Waze while en route, or see real ETAs when we are meeting somewhere has made this app useless to us. I’ll give it a week or two to return to using my phone contacts instead of FB. If it doesn’t change back, I’ll be deleting my account.
Best GPS in the market
Dj_joshpuma on 6/20/2018
There’s got to be a time when somebody asked!!!! man how do I get from point A to point B and immediately you say well that’s got to be a GPS out there. You don’t have to look anywhere the GPS is WAZE the best app for getting from point A to point B no questions asked. 💪🏼🚙🙌🏼
Excelente aplicacion
Villa Fontana on 6/20/2018
Excelente aplicación , no se pierde tiempo
Waze is GREAT!
Big Pretzel on 6/20/2018
Waze is so helpful even when I know the best directions, providing updated alternative routes when necessary, to avoid traffic jams, construction areas; etc. Craig Cohn
Waze with Ford sync... crash after crash
WhydoIneedanicknams01 on 6/20/2018
The app is great on a phone. It’s barely useful when using the ford sync 3.0. First, the app had to be on to be displayed in sync, and on top of that my phone has to be unlocked and in Waze too. Then, the app changes to a blue screen with waze logo which can’t be great for my iPhone X OLED screen (can have burn in). Second, if you move your phone from horizontal to vertical, look for additional routes, or do anything outside of leave the phone alone, the app will crash. Only way to get the app up again is to unplug and plug back in. To say the app needs some work to be reliable while driving with the Sync system is a complete understatement. I’m leaning towards saying it’s NOT SAFE to drive with if you’re not familiar with the area. I.E. the app crashes, you panic because you know a turn is coming up but not sure where, unplug and plug in while driving, get it to reroute......NOT SAFE
Lots of Bugs
GeorgiaPeach86 on 6/20/2018
App keeps crashing in the middle of route to destination. Keep getting “Oops something went wrong” when trying to use at different times.
Puff a Bella on 6/20/2018
Can’t live with our my Wazes!
Huge Battery Drain
nspector65 on 6/20/2018
Even plugged in, I lose battery. Please fix.
Mr.Dez Bryant on 6/20/2018
everytime you leave the waze app, it pauses apple music. please fix it.
Love Waze ❤️
Aurora 77 on 6/19/2018
I literally use this app everyday for all my commutes! The most recent updates though have been either forcing my app to close or not loading my destination. Please fix!
Going downhill
aorudzhyan on 6/19/2018
I’ve been swearing by waze for several years now until recently. The app will disconnect from my route, the app will sometimes have a hard time connecting to GPS, and will freeze on me or won’t pull up my recent searches. All bad. Needs an update asap or I’m switching back to Google Maps.
