Been useful but now annoying
BillDavis on 5/24/2018
The latest update has started making my Ford car with Sync announce that the language used by the app is not the same as the default language if Sync and that voice commands might not function. What voice commands? Why is there now a Waze app visible on my Sync app display? What does it do? Apparently nothing and Waze is locked! Useless. Fix this, and give your users a way find new features and such; this app is about to get deleted. Then damned language announcement everytimw I get in my car & plug is my phone is annoying!
Waze gets you there !!
Optical Buddy on 5/24/2018
I have been using many navigation apps for a number of years. Regardless of which other app I use for a particular reason, I’m always coming back to Waze. I can’t figure out why they can do the things they do, but they do them and they do them well. Kudos to Mr. Waze
Draining Battery - iPhone X
San1986 on 5/24/2018
After the reason update, Just 19 mins of usage it drained 40% of my battery. Please fix this problem
Battery drainer, but still best maps app
croz44 on 5/24/2018
The latest update is a battery drainer. I use the app an hour a day and t accounts for 65% of my battery use. Ouch! Other than that, best maps app out there. Saves me time on the road every day!
Best app ever
AT42 on 5/24/2018
I love this app soooooo much it’s the best app ever
Why does the app mess with pandora
Joe287321 on 5/24/2018
It pauses the music for about 1.5 seconds multiple times . I didn’t do that before
erbology on 5/24/2018
Can no longer see or add friends. There is no option to add friends from my contacts anymore. What’s up? If all I get is the directions and traffic alerts I may need to switch...
Worst app ever
Asite57 on 5/24/2018
This app always sends me down the worst routes possible. It will put me in the heaviest traffic possible. It also tries to give you a "fast route" where you end up having to turn left across 5 lanes of traffic in rush hour.....it will make you late everywhere you go!
Latest update
Mary0721S on 5/24/2018
What’s up with the scoreboard and ranking? I don’t care what my rank is compared to Everyone. I’d rather see rank compared to friends. I’d like more interaction with friends.
Awesome app,, lacks English US voice with street names
Attiq88 on 5/24/2018
This is an awesome app. Only deficiency is English US voice including street names. Hope that can be added.
A pure danger to drivers and completely useless
thefreeviper on 5/24/2018
To start with, there is NO real time update. That was a pure joke in its own. A 21 minute drive took me right under an hour. This was because it brought me to construction sites 3 times. Each one the road was shut down and another route had to be found. One of those times the app brought me back to the same construction area. Google owns this app, and the google map app had those construction sites marked. Why wasn’t it marked on this app too? The rerouting to construction sites is nothing compared to how dangerous this app truly is! This is due to 2 reasons. 1. In order to make a mark for a construction site, or police spotting, or any mark it’s 3 steps with 5 buttons that have to be clicked. You can not make these marks after you arrive at your destination. You are only allowed to add them if you are directly next to it. I’m driving down the road, I don’t have time to pull over and make that mark. Let’s be real here, texting and driving is an issue. Do you really think people are pulling over to make these marks on the map? 2. This is the worst part of the app, and is the reason I believe Apple should pull the app off the market. If there are any updates on your route, or near you, it will send a pop up to let you know. You can’t just click away from the app. Your only options is to send the person who made the mark a thumbs up or to send them a message to thank them. Why the hell is sending a message even an option? This is a map app, not social media. Sorry, but this app needs to be pulled. I don’t understand why you can message people, and have to go through multiple screens to make an update, on an app made for DRIVING!
Foster613 on 5/24/2018
Never accurate
The App is NOT working right.
Bodhipine on 5/24/2018
For the last month this App hasn’t worked. It faces me in the wrong direction and sends me to where I was. Ridiculous. Also— It’s WAY past time Waze fixed their “make a left turn in 4 lanes of traffic with no light” situation. So lame.
Recent update is horrible
SnazzySavy on 5/24/2018
I used to love Waze but the recent update is absolutely horrible! I don’t like the new voice...it’s way too loud but most importantly the app now only tells you to turn left or right but never mentions the name of the street or name of the exit which is horrible! The new update tells you at the very last minute when to turn. Please update your update!
Last minute change
Yurichan326 on 5/24/2018
The app changed my route at the last minute. It had me get out of carpool, off the freeway and taking side streets. I checked and there were no accidents or slow downs on the current route. I’m now stuck in number to bumper traffic trying to get ON the freeway. Added to that, my route has now increased by 15 minutes!
Waze no longer shows my friends, or their shared drives
Lil Wazer on 5/24/2018
Since the last update, when I get an alert that my husband shared his drive with me, it comes in as a text alert, with a link to open Waze.to. When I click the link, it tells me it can’t display, saying the sender must have finished the drive or logged out. When I tried opening the Waze app, and opened my profile and tapped ”My Friends,” looking for my friends who are online (which has always worked until the update), the only option it gives me is to “Show Facebook friends.” I prefer NOT to link to FB—is that now the only way to share?
Sound not working on iPhoneSE
VNfoodie on 5/24/2018
Seems like Waze got worse after google bought it:(
Love it!
Beauty and Brains 24 on 5/24/2018
I think the app is amazing. It has taken me and my husband directly to places we would have been completely lost and deserted in, without it. We have had zero problems out of the app and I love how it tells you where there are cops going to be and where traffic jams are. Everytime it’s rerouted us, it’s saved us time. I have nothing bad to say about this app... just love it!
Clocking a lot on iPhone X
Chaitu B on 5/24/2018
I just installed Waze in my iPhone X. Whatever I search it’s clocking a lot. It’s so annoying to get directions. This app showing busy clock symbol continuously not sure what it’s fetching in the background. Overall the performance is very bad on iPhone X.
Where’d my friends go?!?!
Pixelstix1224 on 5/24/2018
I love ya, Waze. But, your most recent update must have a bug. I can no longer see any of my Facebook friends. At all. Really - nothing shows up except a message that says “Check back soon. Your Facebook friends that use Waze will appear here”. But they never do. They never do :( Checked around and this is happening for others that updated to the latest build. Pleeeease fix this ASAP!!!
Filter button disappears on 5/24/2018
I always have to close the app and reopen it for my Bluetooth connections to play music from any of my music apps. Changes route last second without warning. Has regularly changed my destination to “work” or “home” mid-ride, making me late to meetings when it’s rerouted me without any warning. I usually check that the destination is correct every 10 minutes or so now while driving; unsafe.
gulwais on 5/24/2018
The turns call is too close At least 100 feet away from the turns are ok not in the last second
Lost Friends
A yidel on 5/24/2018
Since last update there is no more option of seeing Waze friends and don’t have the option to add only from Facebook
Could we get a watch app up in here?
Miotch! on 5/24/2018
Y’all are great and save my behind on the daily. But we all know you’ve got the ad dollars and resources, could we get a watch app, CarPlay compatibility and LandRover compatibility? Why are y’all settling for your limited compatibility? Thanks!
What happened
BIGDADDY0037 on 5/23/2018
I swore by waze and recommended it to all my friends. However’ for some reason GPs is not updating or connecting to which has caused me to get majorly lost in unknown areas. I have tried every fix available but no luck in this Iphone x with the lates IOS. PLEASE give me back the d waze asap.
Great app
Nick319 on 5/23/2018
It's all and delivers what it says. One thing that I’m having an issue with the app and it’s that it blocks or interfere with my Apple Music app. Sometimes I have to close either this app or the music app. Still a great app and I use it everyday.

Myss.T on 5/23/2018
Not able to see Facebook friends that we follow...was good at first but not sure nw....
Waze not working properly
rensop77 on 5/23/2018
Getting NO GPS SIGNAL 95% of the time. Also approximate location. Been using Waze for many years on iPhone 5 then iPhone 6 now iPhone 7 this problem started aprox 3 weeks ago. Never had a problem before. Apple went thru all my phone settings all is ok on their end.
Used to be great
hdjsiebejdb on 5/23/2018
This app was great once. I used to tell everyone to use it. It used to actually recommend alternate routes and saved me a ton of time on long trips from jersey to South Carolina in the last few months it has been terrible. First sending an update that defaulted to avoid toll roads ( which added and hour to an already long trip) and now it’s ability to suggest alternate routes in a timely fashion is gone. I literally spent an hour going 3 blocks in NYC today but I didn’t follow my gut because I figured Waze knew best. No more for me. I deleted the app today and will not recommend again
Come on now, Waze...
SJTobi on 5/23/2018
We all know that you’re better than this. The lags in the destination time have only been getting worse. For example, I typically drive during off-peak times in the DC area, only to find that the traffic jams and hold ups are not being updated in a timely matter. I’ve been a loyal Wazer since 2012 and I’ve seen great improvements, but also very obvious simple things that need a lot of improvement. While on the subject, I can no longer connect my FB to Waze — even though Waze thinks I’m connected. The last update must have messed that up. This has happened in the past and the only remedy is uninstalling and reinstalling. I’m not doing it. Fix this all? Please and thank you! 😘
Mtm353 on 5/23/2018
Love all the notifications on the road. Very helpful
Unhappywithpoints on 5/23/2018
We have a lot of fun with the points but with your update I can’t even tell my weekly points much less my friends!!!!Sorry you changed such a great app. Use to be a lot fun but all these so called updates and changes have taken the fun out
Works really well most of the time, but…
2ManyApps41Phone on 5/23/2018
I’ve used Waze for several years. Recently, they screwed up the Add a stop feature. If you use this feature, there’s no telling where you’ll wind up. SometimesIt takes you where you want but sometimes it changes mid route for no apparent reason to the last place It gave you directions for, or it drops your stop altogether mid route.It used to be a very solid app but now it’s just buggy.
Very delayed
kb24traveler on 5/23/2018
I really prefer to use this navigating app. The issue is the delay in directions. On the interstate it will verbally tell you to exit ahead of time. On regular streets it’s not quick enough giving directions. I’ve miss a lot of turns because the app will tell me to turn after I’ve passed the turn. Of course if I physically look down at the directions I can avoid this happening. The main objective is to not have to look at my phone. It has also located me on random roads while I’m on the interstate going straight. They really need to update/strengthen their geographical locating feature.
"Problem with network connection"
Coolout on 5/23/2018
I am so tired of getting this error. There's nothing wrong with the connection. I have this app set to use cellular (checked multiple times now), I have at least four bars - five right nkw as I write this. I love this app when it works but it decides not to at the most inopportune times! I updated and it still wasn't fixed!
This app has made me lose money
TonyFam7777 on 5/23/2018
This app has a very annoying feature: it automatically starts to take you home. WAZE, if you’re reading this: TURN THIS FEATURE OFF. Or at least allow drivers to be able to turn off automatic navigation. If I’m home it’ll automatically start navigation to one of my usual destinations. NOT COOL. Automatic navigation might be ok for people who travel to same places every day... but not for Lyft drivers or people who don’t need directions to the same places every time.

Love, love, love this app! I travel a lot and find it so very helpful! Switched from Google, will not go back!
Good job
Augustoch on 5/23/2018
It helps me a lot when I look for a place to go. Good job, thanks so much
aimee419 on 5/23/2018
This app used to be OK but now it repeatedly does not give me all of the routes that are possible, including the quickest one. Over and over again I reset it and try to get it to tell me the quickest way and it won’t. It always leaves out certain roads like it thinks they’re not even there. These are roads that have been there for years. Roads that it used to tell me to take all the time. Now all of a sudden it’s like that road doesn’t exist. It has cost me literally hours because I trust it and do what what it says. While I sit in bumper to bumper traffic stuck on a feeder road somewhere while I’m watching everyone else flyby on the road that I should’ve taken but that Waze told me not to take. Total BS! Delete!
Let’s get going
n2dedppha on 5/23/2018
is a pretty neat app specially with the warnings a potential dangers hazards on the road. Along with the warnings for the police presence. My only complaint is sometimes it takes a while for the key up and sometimes loses its signal. Other than that he can’t beat it👌🏿
threesd on 5/23/2018
Excellent accuracy for traffic and other hazards especially if you tend to be heavy footed! Has replaced both of my other navigation systems
Bugs need to be worked out
Bittrsweetlove on 5/23/2018
I’ve had Waze for a few years now, and 90% of the time when I create a planned drive, it doesn’t work. Yes, it tells me I need to go into my settings. I have to do that every single time. When I go to settings everything is as it should be. It just doesn’t work. There have also been times where I have entered in an address, & will discover half-way through my trip that the app went and overrode the address with my WORK address or my home address. This happens so much that I have lost almost all my trust in the app and have actually taken the time to write a review. It’s cool you guys are updating to work on car screens but... why don’t you fix whats broken before tacking on new stuff with more problems?
pretty much a Garmin
Rug Daniels on 5/23/2018
The app is decent at directions & routes but is close to useless for daily commute arrival times or traffic delays.
Used to be great. Now simply OK.
Macbook_Pro_Retina on 5/23/2018
The "Stop" button, for stopping navigation, now requires two button presses instead of one. Way to regress guys! Very convenient while driving when I want Waze to stop talking. Just to be perfectly clear, that was sarcasm. Please change it back to one button press to stop navigation. Also, the "search" button flashes constantly of you have waze open, but aren't actually navigating with it. This is soooo distracting while driving. Please make it stop.
James8238 on 5/23/2018
This app is not compatible with iPhone X. I believe Waze should fix this issue and stay up to date. The gps is not able to locate my location even if my location is enabled to always.
Favorite map app
LJ from Lake County on 5/23/2018
Great app because you see reports that other drivers made. Do you know if there is an accident or cops ahead. Occasionally it takes you on random detours though.
App won't connect to server
B.yxavius on 5/22/2018
I've been trying to use the app to plan a trip but everytime I've tried to load the route it gives me an error message saying that the app is having trouble connecting to the server!'👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾
New slow
pleasetryagainlater on 5/22/2018
All of the sudden super slow...
Was great but they tinkered too much
Slagged Heap on 5/22/2018
I’ve used Waze for years and have recommended it to everyone since Day 1. Unfortunately I can’t do that anymore. Now every time I try to do a search it times out. If I ask it to route a destination more than 100 miles away, the routing server times out. Reached out to support a couple of times but no response... It was good while it lasted
Horrible update
juph70 on 5/22/2018
Newest update removed all of my friends. Used the app to make sure my college daughter made the drive back to school safely. I can no longer see her nor can I share drives or send ETAs. Really lost my confidence in Waze. Please put it back. Not happy. Will begin looking for something better.
