I love Waze but need updates
MissAnne32 on 7/19/2018
I have been using Waze for several years. I really like the App and find it useful but with the latest updates I have had difficulty with finding even the simplest routes. Today I missed a Doctors appointment after Waze couldn’t find the location. My arrival according to Waze was at the side of a highway. As much as I like the notifications of traffic, cars on the side of the road, etc. The priority should be improving navigation guidance. I still appreciate the App.
Turn notifications
tineplate. on 7/19/2018
I too agree that the turn notifications do not give you enough warning. very confusing some times . other than that no real problems .
Server errors
Dvb yooooo on 7/19/2018
For the past few months, every time I try to plan a trip there is a server error and I’m unable to look at routes or times. Super inconvenient and prevents me from using this app.
Server times out
Sell time on 7/19/2018
Every time I use it for longer trips - it will not calculate - get error -server times out. Not very useful!!!
It’s all good!
FunkE1 Kenobi on 7/19/2018
Love this app!
Ughhhh planned routes
Irishman10 on 7/19/2018
Failed to communicate with the routing server over and over...... makes planning your cross country trip very difficult. Come On 😡😡😡
BoardsNboards on 7/19/2018
Can’t have friends unless you use Facebook... and routes have been disappointing. Most recent made me 20 min late compared to my buddy who didn’t use anything. We had the same destination and starting point!
I used to love this app
Skirtberry on 7/19/2018
7/18/18.... Once again we’ve installed this app as we are in need. Does not work!! Can not connect and I am on LTE iPhone 8!! No good Not anymore. Have uninstalled repeatedly and it keeps saying no connection even with access to my location. I’m on iPhone 8. So sad. One of my favorite apps:(
Google maps is superior
Baker_Square on 7/19/2018
This is the worst directions app I’ve ever used. It often tells me what to do last second, and will also often times just stop talking all together if my phone screen shuts off. Which makes it extremely hard to actually follow the directions without looking at my phone, & that defeats the whole purpose of having a driving app that talks to me. It also will get confused and tell me the wrong directions, getting me lost 3/5 times I’ve needed this app. That always results in me having to take a million u-turns or alternate routes until I finally find my destination. It’s also frustrating that it’s user edited so I have I actually input an address sometimes instead of just being able to look up the name of the place im going to. A feature google maps has. The only reason I use Waze is because for some reason google maps won’t work at the same time as Spotify. Probably because of the Waze/Spotify partnership :/ I really do hate this app, I wish it was better. If you have an option not to use it, don’t.
Love The App
Btmcgraw on 7/19/2018
Love the app and use it every day for work but I have one suggestion. Add the lanes in routes. For instance, when I’m being told to take an exit and I need to be in a specific lane, maybe not the far right but the one next to it, show that where the notification at the top shows what exit I’m taking. That could help a lot while using major highways with many lanes and multiple exits in one section. If this is added this app is easily a 5 star app, all day every day!!!
Aabronson on 7/19/2018
great directions even when it leads me off the beaten path, I trust it. really value the social cooperative traffic reporting features.
Great app- randomly useless
Abj1235 on 7/19/2018
When it works- works well. Problem is that in the recent versions it started to lose satellite signal quite often. When that happens app becomes useless and some times plain dangerous as it shows you are on a different road and asking you to do things that you should not. I am running on an iPhone 7 Plus with 256gb of storage. I am an IT guy and have tried all suggestions and recommendations, yet the problem persists.
Like, BUT Need More Info...
Rforrist on 7/19/2018
Love this app but I wish it would tell you the street names of where you were needing to turn instead of “in a quarter of a mile..” & would love for it to automatically search for an updated route while driving & alert you!
You guys rock
Totem there on 7/19/2018
Love the app, only thing wish I could do is report police in motion, only three options visible hidden and other side, what about mobile? Much love Totem
Mostly good
User1435 on 7/19/2018
I love the way it reroutes based on traffic conditions and seems to be pretty accurate. The minus 2 stars is for two reasons. 1. It could use lane guidance like the other popular navigation apps. 2. They used to allow you to have friends based on your contacts. Now it is through Facebook only. I refuse to log into another program with a different programs log in.
Turning left onto busy street
wazer999999999 on 7/19/2018
I wish one could have a setting where one could always choose to turn left at a light onto busy street from a quiet street. Usually happens from residential street onto main artery.
BreaktimeTn on 7/19/2018
What’s the point in having people help edit the map if you can’t help or don’t have permission? The app is pointless and that’s why it has so many flaws in its mapping and speed limits are false! You will get a ticket if you don’t watch with this app but because people like me that actually care and want to help gets stuck on level 1 also not able to do anything to Contribute. This is why it will always be a number 2 not 1 app to use.

This is horrible no gps after updated my phone and the app??!!!!?

Waze is a great app hands down. However, it is only capable of warning you of road back-ups, police, obstructions etc. provided that someone is actually able to notify the app. Due to new GA “HANDS-FREE” Law, this makes it less chances that an individual can rely upon the app for warnings on the road ahead.
Jhkcmk on 7/19/2018
I’m a long time Waze user and I love it. However the app uses my battery up and fast. My phone also gets really hot.
yari215 on 7/19/2018
Best app ever
Problem with network connection
Patish18 on 7/19/2018
Keep saying I have a problem with network connection. Followed your instructions on turning Location services on and off. Reinstalled. Nothing helps. It’s a shame Google! Did you buy it to screw it?!
Good, but needs route changes
ErikaInAG on 7/19/2018
I like Waze and it's super helpful for avoiding traffic, etc, but when mapping out a route, it gives me certain routes without giving me the option to adjust them. Why would I go to a highway onramp that's 4 miles south of the one I should take? Why not give me the option to pick instead of only giving me certain options that don't really work in the first place?? Also, now that I've been using Waze regularly for grocery delivery, I've started to get very annoyed by the repetitive "go now" once I've already chosen my destination and clicked "go". Why do I have to say go now when I just said go? It may seem minor, but having it happen several times a day is beyond frustrating. Please get rid of it and just make it one "go".
Locking up iPhone 7
phillip9 on 7/19/2018
The last couple versions appear to be locking up my iPhone 7. With iOS 11.4 The phone will become very slow/not respond to button presses I’ll have to hard reboot to get it to work. The phone will work fine for days until the next time I use Waze ( I only use waze a couple times a week )
Love this app
136Cookie on 7/19/2018
It saves me a lot of time in traffic!
Colors on your route
Shawn38 on 7/19/2018
I like Wazes a lot. The only thing I don’t like is how along your driving route when your in traffic you can’t tell. The route color stays purple. Like in google and Apple maps it changes color to red to show your in traffic or if traffic is coming up and it show traffic density. Like Yellow for light traffic and red for heavy. I see it shows red behind the purples. But, you can’t tell that well it’s red. And if it’s your road or the road next to it. I live in Washington DC and 95, 395 you can’t tell which road has traffic. Hopefully you can work on changing colors
Does the job, but small changes could make it safer and user friendly
Mr ACH 10 on 7/19/2018
This app is generally my go to for directions and best routes, but the biggest reason I use others is because of the untimely reminders or notice of an exit or change. It literally waits until you are at the intersection to remind you this is where you are turning or where the new route is taking you. Other apps will tell you get in the right lane, and give you reminders to turn at the next light etc. A similar upgrade would really make this a safer more user friendly app.
Not good
dogg0427 on 7/19/2018
Used to love using app, but since the update it is useless. I get a blank screen and only get voice navigation. And now when I search for an address it says error. Please fix
Great and bad
Sneaky Biznatch on 7/19/2018
Love the up to date traffic but hate the actual map and gps. Seems like it’s a second slow so U don’t know which road to turn Into if there are several cross roads next to each other. Actual map and gps google maps is much better.
Very Good!! The best I’ve used!
Iron Man Van on 7/19/2018
It’s 5 Star!!
Telco Failure
phumberg on 7/19/2018
In Brazil, Claro (Telco Operator) has some issues with your software. There several areas where the app do not work. Same phone in the US works pretty well.
Almost perfect
Oh_It's_Dan on 7/19/2018
I’ve used Waze for years. The only thing it’s missing is the lane indicators that Google Maps and (recently) Apple Maps have. Once that’s implemented, it’ll be a 5 Star review for me.
Best GPS ever
BrothaRollins on 7/19/2018
I’ve never had problems with the Waze GPS app. I love the Directions and navigation, download this app.
Worst app ever
xraydelta7 on 7/19/2018
I am deleting this app. It is not intuitive and took me out of my way into an unsafe area. It should remember the way you took to get to the destination and return you the same way. It freezes up and is useless
Good App
alanroberts91 on 7/19/2018
Just would like lane guidance added.
Gets me there
Wizzzaed on 7/19/2018
Everyone should be using this. It's reliable, easy to use an taps in to hundreds of thousands of xo-user's data in realtime - indescribable.
Need to improve more
MD Muinul Ahsan Majumder on 7/19/2018
Waze need to improve more like Google map. In google map, the application shows all the lanes in a big road but waze doesn't. For example ⬅️⬆️⬆️➡️ something like this, if we need to make right turn it shows this ➡️ sing in bold & others ⬅️⬆️⬆️ not . This indicator helps us a lot which only available in Google map. Waze should get this system. We will be very glad if authority change it & fixed it exactly same or way much better than Google map. Thank you.
Mostly love it
Phoibos on 7/19/2018
Use this every day. The routing frequently is a mystery to me. It sometimes picks routes that take longer and frequently require to drive more miles. The buttons for entering a report and even more for confirming or deleting a report are too small to be used safely. But the crowd sourced information is priceless so none of this really matters.
Mike share on 7/19/2018
For all Waze...
dalegna on 7/19/2018
Works like a charm— like a great copilot.
Multiple destinations
Raana_b on 7/19/2018
It would be great if we can add multiple destinations. So we can see a overview of whole route at once.
YLopez86 on 7/18/2018
Please add where you can see the address once you arrive at your destination. It would be nice to see the number as sometimes it can be forgotten if you've traveled A long distance or say "destination is on left side" or "right side" these would be tremendous, as well as lane info also. Other than that it's a great app, but plenty of room for improvement.
App automatically reroutes you away from your destination
Bok begawk! on 7/18/2018
You have to keep your eye on the app when driving, as it frequently changes your destination. Nobody has to touch the phone and there is no warning from the app. It's very dangerous. I used to trust Waze until it started changing the destination at random.
Plan a drive always fails
Melfordrac on 7/18/2018
When I have tried to plan a drive it will just spin and spin and spin then finally uh-oh Failed to communicate with routing server. Click the OK and nothing. Nada. No planned drive and no time to leave which is what I really need to work. Guess I’ll see what google has to offer.
Missing something important
The Barista on 7/18/2018
When Waze gets Lane guidance I'll use this as my dedicated GPS. Without it navigating isn't as easy as it is with other apps.
Necessary improve features
Karatedogs on 7/18/2018
It would be helpful if you could add features to waze such as how long it would take you to get to a place instead of just from the location you are in. Ex google maps had point a and b where you can look up the place from anywhere . Also, it would be good if you could add walking directions and other forms of transportation instead of just driving. Add an icon for trains to alert drivers about a train crossing the tracks.
Punish users
Radical MT on 7/18/2018
This app is great, but punishes users for just imputing or updating road information. Bots are the ones running this application. Humans only gives useless information of why or how you got punished
Bad update
doctorfizz on 7/18/2018
Have been using Waze a long time this new update makes it impossible for the app to locate me and put me on the beltway 8. Please fix
Contacts/friends gone, unless thru Facebook???
tn-0904 on 7/18/2018
The makers of Waze must be getting some sort of kickback from Zuckerberg since now the only contacts you can have are from Facebook. I guess if you don't have a Facebook account you're a loser with no friends. Or maybe, just maybe you don't like linking to your FB account so everyone can see you?? I've used Waze for 4+ years and this is the worst change I've seen them make.
Only good thing is sharing cop locations, otherwise it’s pretty bad overall
Seblack1355 on 7/18/2018
Overall I don’t like Waze compared to google maps or Apple maps when it comes to the navigation piece. For one, if waze loses connection (poor or weak signal, going from Wi-Fi to cellular as you pull out of your driveway) then it is annoyingly difficult to get it to work again without completely restarting it, and even then it says it can’t get a signal, even though I can run an internet speed test or get the other apps to connect with no problem. The other thing I dislike about waze is the fact that it doesn’t have lane assist, so when I’m driving in unfamiliar cities I find myself going to the extreme right or left lanes to make the exits and then realize that the right four lanes actually exit. This is extremely annoying in heavy traffic where changing lanes becomes an emotional event. Google and Apple have lane assist. If you want the alerts feature only (cops, cameras, hazards), just open waze in the background while you use google or Apple maps to navigate, it’s what I do now
