  • Please add Apple Music support!!!

    By Hotrod1111
    I really like using this app for navigation and it does give the ability to stream your music from a different app at the same time, but I use Apple’s streaming service Apple Music and the Waze app doesn’t allow it to be used like say Google Maps does for example. That’s my only major complaint about the app currently and I would greatly appreciate it if this could be fixed/added in as soon as possible since I use navigation daily for work. If this gets added, I would be glad to change my rating to 5 out of 5 stars.
  • It ‘ s perfect

    By thamara12
    It ‘s perfect worth Downloading. I recommend them 100%
  • Car play

    By K.Michael Exl
    I love the app but in CarPlay the speed is never correct but if just us the app it work just fine
  • Ok at best.

    By RealMarauder
    Please add a payment option to get rid of the annoying ads and the silly eco warrior bull crap.
  • Fix speedometer issues please

    By Elwood125
    Works great with sync 3 and CarPlay- really would be nice to fix the speedometer issue it reads 11-12 mph too high.
  • Location Tracking When Idle

    By HowGee
    Since the last few updates, the app has kept actively tracking my location after exiting: the blue navigation icon on the top left of the screen stays active long after the app is closed. Other navigation apps like Google Maps do not exhibit this behavior - and until recently Waze didn't either. Please revert back to the way it was and stop tracking if app is exited when no navigation is active.

    By lilredrhi
    Best GPS ever. It's on point with everything.
  • Useless

    By Bampa3
    Since update goes to menu cannot get to map!
  • Good App, potential to be the best; Needs Clean UI!!

    By Saviisss
    It is a very good application. But one thing which should be better overtime is the UI. The UI for app and navigation needs a more cleaner look. I believe everyone would love to see that kind of update in future!
  • Speed is off

    By qwebob
    What waze states as my speed is incorrect.
  • Great app, but a request as of June ‘19

    By Kraftykraft
    Need to add heavy rain n limited visibility under the hazard/weather option.
  • Amazing app

    By Jeeeerkkk
    I have met countless of riders and made extra cash using this app! You can get anywhere with the carpool app!

    By Gms162007
    So many issues, bugs, crashes, lagging, etc. Can’t even use it anymore. Also many times I’ll cancel a route, change it to another location, and it will still guide me to the original location despite canceling.
  • Really

    By djstrazz
    By far the worst app for GPS!
  • Speed not accurate

    By jbb1959
    The speed used to be right on but now is higher by 10 to 20 percent
  • Issue

    By 77coffey
    I'd like to give the app a higher rating but for some reason when I tilt the iPhone into Landscape view everything is off-center. I'm guessing it is for notifications and such but I don't like it. I'd rather the option to center or not. I've tried the app a few more times and just delete it after it still isn't centered.
  • Time

    By T&T&A
    It’s the best it saved me time and tickets.
  • Works well but...

    By Rimxa
    I feel like it doesn’t always give you the fastest route and sometimes it glitches and gives you directions on the road when Iam still on the freeway
  • What Happened??

    By GabbieF
    This app takes literally forever to load! It never used to have this many issues until recently. Every time I try to map out a long distance route (about 6 hours) it “times-out”. I’ve tried closing the app, deleting and re-installing and absolutely NOTHING. Totally ridiculous.
  • Mph not accurate on sync window

    By DebBlencowe
    If you are connected to Sync 3 you will find it is reporting speeds faster than you are actually going. Disconnect from Sync 3 and waze show correct speed. I hav tested and it is over at ALL speeds. For example, set cruise for 60 and waze displays correctly not connected, when connect to Sync 3 it reports I am going 69.
  • App crashes frequently. Can’t load results frequently.

    By nickname58548742679863468995
    (Starting around the month of April, that I’ve noticed) the app has so many problems. Sporadically, either it crashes without warning or can’t load results or loses connectivity. And it’s the same exact problems on android too. Something changed in Waze in 2019 that has caused it to become very unreliable. I have to use both apple maps as a backup for when waze decides to crash without telling me it’s gotten so bad.
  • Great app!

    By Phytti
    I’m so glad I don’t get lost anymore. Just have a few U turns when I’m not paying attention...it’s my fault, not the app’s.
  • Too many ads and steals your contacts!

    By iPhone user987
    Apple maps is much better and had no ads. Also doesn't require your phone number and steal contacts for uploading to their servers
  • Disappointed!

    By bubbe5
    Waze has continued to go downhill since google purchased it. It limits my options to usually only two, sometimes one, and often the only options it gives me are longer than the routes I end up taking on my own. It puts me in the middle of gridlock situations constantly! I’ve been late for work by relying on waze so many times that I was almost put on probation! I commute 35 miles to work each day. I can not afford for my eta to continue to get later and later every few minutes, adding up to 20+ minutes to my drive!
  • Awesome

    By fredojaplus
  • Solid Fave Year After Year

    By GA2TN
    I’ve used it all over the country and locally and Waze is absolutely the best. I wish you could program more than one Home and Work but that’s my only complaint.
  • Unusable until ads are removable

    By Shagmar
    The ads are only supposed to show up when at a complete stop but when in heavy traffic they pop up which is distracting. It also means that anytime I look at it while in traffic to get a feel for my commute I have to cancel the ad which is dangerous. Until an ad free option is available this app is useless at best and dangerous at worst. I really want to like and use this app as I find the notifications about road conditions incredibly useful but I refuse to use something that jeopardizes my safety while driving.
  • No option to center up my map in landscape mode.

    By Tommy Sawyer
    Love the Refresh Rate on the iPad Pro, but it kills me that you have no option to center up the navigation map in landscape. This was the main reason I stopped using apple maps. Please make this feature option!
  • Major lag time

    By JaniceClark!!!
    Waze has such a lag time. It gets totally confused in parking lots. It freezes at the worst times. I’m always going in the wrong direction with it ☹️
  • MPH display

    By Stump28
    Noticing that the MPH displayed on the app is incorrect showing speeds higher than actually going. A difference of 9-10MPH.
  • What happened??

    By RB-Bikinit
    Over the last couple months or so, the app doesn’t place me on the road im driving on when i start out. It puts me a couple miles away moving in an odd direction like sideways. It takes roughly 10 miles of driving to finally figure out how to place me correctly. Its gotten worse over time. I don't like having to switch between 2 apps just to get my direction proper to my heading, i like this app better and sure wish you could correct this bug.
  • Good for nav, OK for carpooling

    By schneidypants
    Occasionally buggy re: matches for carpooling, missed notifications. PLEASE REMOVE RED LIGHT CAMERA NOTIFICATIONS!! Seemingly the only alert that can’t be turned off in settings and it is totally unnecessary and distracting.
  • Garbage !

    By sinepxiv
    This is the worse app ever!!! It takes a century to load a dam route! God forbid you exit out the app you have to wait for it to reload!! Terrible app! Stay with your apple navigation or google maps! Its not worth the stress!
  • Great!

    By Don of the north
    Wonderful app very useful
  • Used to be good

    By CutiePie❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
    My app has been timing out when I put in addresses. I’m on vacation and this is not good!!!! Never did this before. Fix the app ASAP!!!
  • Errors bugs and no sound

    By bse_sf
    I want to like it but I can’t. There are just too many problems and irritations. The worst is that it randomly just stops providing voice guidance. That’s unsafe because you have to pick up your phone and look at it over and over again to make sure you’re on course.
  • The planning mode is horrible

    By qweettytrr
    Don’t trust the planning mode. A simple thing like time zone changes apparently are too much for this app to factor in and you will be an hour late.
  • Bills Waze

    By 123457 Bg
    App is great
  • When it works it’s great

    By Dommommy13
    Been trying all day to get it to calculate from Florida to the Chicago are. Now I have to use google maps because it keeps telling me that it cannot find a route. Closest it will calculate to is Indianapolis ... When it does work it’s a great app though. I loved it until today.... when I really needed it...

    By Bugamoose
    Using Waze via CarPlay used to just have the Speed Limit Sign which was great! It was nice and big. Now, there is this useless speedometer with a Speed Limit Sign that is so small you can barely see it. Especially when driving. Can you give us an option for a nice BIG speed limit sign like before?? Please stop trying to fix things when they’re not broke!
  • Undependable now

    By crazy2bhere
    I’ve used Waze since it’s inception. Used to be very useful and very reliable for all kinds of navigation needs. Now it sends me in circles. It also used to say which side of the street the location was - not anymore. Too many problems to list here. I’ve been patient for the last 2 years hoping it would get back to its superior navigation but it only gets worse. Waze, we now have to part ways. Also, I’m having trouble understanding the high ratings users are giving, but the reviews don’t reflect the high rating.
  • Wake is the best!

    By Sprice19
    Love this app! Wouldn’t get anywhere without it! ❤️
  • Best navigation tool out there

    By Spacemoc
    This app does almost everything you need in a navigation app. I use it on my daily commute in LA. If traffic slows or an accident happens on route I’m rerouted
  • Dangerous ads

    By davidc000001
    Ads keep popping up in the middle of my drive. It’s distracting and dangerous. This is incredibly unethical to try and distract the driver in the middle of a drive with ads that take up half the freakin screen. You are directly responsible for the crashes this will cause.
  • Sometimes Good, Sometimes Bad

    By JimBags!
    Always double check Waze. Keep updating it when you drive. Sometimes it sends you down a route which is not the fastest or smartest route
  • Nice

    By frizzy3309
    It has saved me
  • A-

    By PusCerryday
    Great app other than the issues w/ map editing.
  • CarPlay Affected with latest update

    By Pantone186
    Boo! The latest update has caused problems with inaccurate speed displays. The app when connected to CarPlay displays your speed 11 miles faster than your actual speed. Unplug from CarPlay and you’ll find your speed displaying more accurately. Would be great for Waze to get this slip fixed. It’s enough to send me to a different app which would make me sad because I love Waze.
  • Can’t get drive later to ever load

    By cdpear08
    I have used this app for years and prefer it over others but really annoyed that it doesn’t work as well as it used to
