  • Has gone downhill

    By Senator squirrel
    Lately, has been giving way way inaccurate ETA and suggesting entering and exiting highways multiple times in quick succession for no reason, causing major delays on service roads and trying to fight traffic getting off. Plus, sometimes the entrances it suggests to get back on is closed. This most recent transgression cause an unnecessary 15 minute delay.
  • Not what it used to be!

    By 4mer5350
    I used to love waze, but those days are long gone! Nowadays it is a very glitchy app on it’s best day. It will take you 3 miles out of the way to possibly “save” you a half a second, will make you zig zag thru town for no reason, will read you the whole sign with all he road names very slowly so you would miss the next immediate turn, stuff goes on and on... I’m a full time Uber driver in NYC and I rely on GPS for ETA purposes and I used to think that this was the bomb.com, but with experience I came to find out that it is just a crap
  • Waze the best

    By yoma-mayo
    The best app I use it even to go home
  • East to use

    By Lakrkrz
    So far best app used. Police warnings , hazards, accidents, etc
  • Great Ap!

    By Rooster Chief
    Good directions always but it’s best feature is negotiating around stalled traffic using alternate routes.
  • Love Waze

    By LongNuts400
    Only navigation app I use
  • Waze catches cops

    By kessousj1
    I’ve saved thousands, seriously. Thank you!
  • Waze better than Google Maps

    By Skip1288
    I can’t imagine any app better for directions. It’s the absolute best

  • Day 1

    By DaSoulFire1
    Tried Waze for the first time ever and got lost constantly. I’m a food delivery driver and it has to be the absolute worst. There is always a lag, the icon can’t keep up with my actual driving hence i pass the turns all the time. it also takes a while to update and realize that I’m driving the wrong way and i get lost even more because I don't know im driving the wrong way until the gps tells me and with Waze it takes way too long for the app to realize it. Going back to my other gps app which i never had these problems with. At least I gave it a try.
  • Excellent Navigation App

    By brennie1940
    Nothing can compete with a Waze. It’s the go to App for navigation.

    Dependable, shared updated situation en route which gives you alternate choices to arrive safely to your destination !
  • Indispensable, but 1 annoyance

    By Sanncc
    Waze is indisputably the superior GPS map for driving, walking, bus routes, maybe even other modes of transportation; it even worked once—on accident—during a flight. No other app has up-to-the-minute information — plus on-the-fly adjustments for traffic, construction, lane closure, road closed, other unanticipated obstacles & frustrations that weren’t there when you started your drive. My one annoyance with Waze is pop-up ads for Waze Carpool *while I’m driving*. I’m fully in favor of carpooling; any way to reduce carbon emissions is a big win. But, for the love of God, don’t obstruct my map and driving instructions with a pop-up while I’m maneuvering multiple interchanges on Austin freeways. Please don’t interrupt my GPS with a pop-up while I’m sweating bullets, making multiple lane changes to make the next off-ramp. Waze often has a lag time when I start driving to orient to my position and direction of travel. I’ve learned to live with it. Apart from that one frustration, Waze is Superior.
  • Useful App

    By Foreveryoung20022002
    Always nice to see alternate routes and hidden cops to detour being stuck in traffic and acquiring unwanted traffic tickets!
  • Great Features

    By Sarabeth Tiuan
    Love the detailed features for adding a stop and alerts for traffic and hazards. The one fault I have is that waze doesn’t pinpoint the specific addresses once you get to your destination street as well as google. Still love it. It’s saved me lots of time!
  • The Best ever

    By POrellana
    The Best navigator I ever had... I recommend it 100%... It’s amazing!!!
  • Can’t drive without Waze

    By CarlovonCarlo
    I use Waze every day because it offers better directions than google maps by far .
  • Getting worse

    By jsidndiwoans
    For traffic and red lights cameras it’s great. Recently though it has taken me on a longer route then the ones I know to be shorter. This has happened more often then not lately. The ads have increased too so they are probably pushing people towards whoever pays to advertise thus making routes a little longer. Just a theory but seems kind of weird when I know one route takes 45 minutes and it takes me on an hour route. Won’t be using anymore.

  • Constant freezing

    By cynthiam25
    This app freezes a lot. For the last 6 months it will tell me the route then it freezes and doesn’t update locations. So I can be driving straight. And look down and the app doesn’t show me moving. And I missed my turn or started going the wrong way. I’m uninstalling. I was hoping this problem would have gotten fixed. But it’s worse. I have an iPhone XR and shouldn’t have this problem.
  • Works OK

    By Drawing maniac321
    The only thing I don’t like about this App Is that it doesn’t pause the music or iBooks when speaking directions
  • Waze

    By DESerrano59
    Love Waze overall but wish there were more celebrity voices to choose from I miss TPain
  • Absolute cancer

    By sunraja
    “Hey guys lets randomize google maps routes so it looks like our app does something!” - Waze devs Terrible app, probably costs billions of hours in bad routes worldwide yearly.
  • Saves my life!!!

    By gogogorette
    I love Waze so much. It is a life saver
  • Not anymore!

    By MrsBkr
    I use to Kvetan using Waze. I have stopped using it for safety reasons. I don’t carpool, I don’t want to carpool and I never will. Somehow Waze thinks it’s okay to interrupt me while I’m driving to force me to answer carpool questions with no option to get out. I’m done with Waze. It’s incredibly annoying.
  • Great app

    By gbobadi
    I love Waze and I use it all the time to avoid conflicting areas, it always takes me around avoiding delays, however sometimes it gets crazy, asking me to make U turns, fortunately when that has happened I’ve known where I’m going and just continued, after a moment Waze comes back to normal mode. I recommend Waze to everyone.
  • Best Navigation App EVER!!

    By ScottS1961
    Always on time!

    By baby-katie
    I've used this app for years now and highly recommended it to all my friends. I may give Google Maps another chance though because the last few months this thing has wasted more of my time and gas trying to decide where it's going. It will have the full address and then it just seems to mix up the route. First it says turn right then a few (700 ft or sometimes a mile or more... really random) it turns you completely around to go the other way. This isn't the U turn situation because "you need to go down in order to turn around to go the other direction". This has been consistently happening for atleast 2/3 months. And in the FL Disney corridor area it's truly at a loss (or just plain lost). Thankfully I've lived in Kissimmee area 33 years so alot of times I realize it's giving crazy info and routing but we residents do not actually drive in that area unless we're going there and have no other choice; which had been my case lately since I sold my house in the fall of 2018. But it's not just here. I've been meaning to write this for a few weeks. I've kept using it mostly due to the features to add a stop for gas/food or search out something specific along the "route", storing address, settings to avoid a lot of toll roads/interstate when there's cheaper ways 5 minutes longer, routing overview AND the speed limit listing with the alarm beep for exceeding the limit. These are GREAT features so I'm noting the good therefore obviously it's gotten annoying with its routing for me to consider another navigation. Either your maps need updating or the program needs tweaked but I won't do this much longer since it waste too much time/gas. So lowering my rating for now. You can't do *1/2* stars or I would have done *2-1/2* for "middle of the road" cause that would be fitting for the performance these last many weeks.
  • No GPS Connection

    By AnaNicole4
    This app has disappointed me greatly. I would always rely on it, until lately it shows it can’t locate me. I had turn the location on for the app, yet it can’t find me. When it does that it won’t even tell me where I’m heading. Or the directions I need to take. It’s a huge inconvenience for me. I would appreciate it if this bug or whatever it is, would be fixed. I really liked this app until recently.
  • Can’t live without it!!

    By Lovecake12345678
    Best ever
  • Location Services

    By J. Esp
    I like the comfort of knowing that when I close an app, all of the apps functions stop performing, including location. This version of Waze continues to operate even after I have closed the app. It was giving me red light notifications after the app was closed. I do not like this. Please fix. I will be using other gos services in the meantime. Thanks.
  • I used to love Waze

    By Nitzaqd
    But there is less and less information. Lately, they completely eliminated turn by turn directions! Even with my husband driving and me navigating, it was just too confusing!
  • Love Love this daily go to app!

    By U sniff sox?!?!?
    I love this app. It’s the start of my day. Cannot day enough good things about it.
  • Bug fixes maybe ?

    By xx. lula .xx
    Great app, love it. Removed a star because after a while my phone starts to get hot when using Waze & also runs slow. Been like that for a few months now, when I started using Waze years ago that never happened. Also navigation signals are too delayed for my liking, it tells you exactly when you should be making the turn, instead of a few hundred feet beforehand like most apps. I Use it for Waze reports though, that’s the best feature, but sometimes if I’m going somewhere unfamiliar I’ll change to google maps because of the late notifications
  • Waze

    By oaknj
    Waze has recently been unable to connect for morning commute 2-3 days per week...not sure the issue.
  • Awazing

    By boogity jane
    It’s a great app. The reports on waze are 99% accurate. Very helpful let’s you know if there’s any accident, road closures, police, foggy or any kind of weather. I recommend it to anyone.
  • Awesome App!

    By KAC Six
    My only criticism is that it’s hard to find any kind of order to the favorites I have saved.
  • Use it everyday

    By Jimfromliny
    For the most part, the app works great. However, occasionally, not often, it will make odd suggestions to make turns that make no sense... instead of making a right it says to go straight make a u-turn and then left, or instead of going straight at an intersection it says to turn right and then turn back onto the road... other than that it is great.
  • Quit asking about carpooling

    By Señor Rix
    I don’t carpool so quit bugging me about carpooling it. Other than that Waze is good.
  • Excellent app

    By tmwb86
    I love this app! Use it a great deal! It also helps you learn different ways to get somewhere. Only one time it didn’t work .. completely shut down.. weather I think! Love Waze! Tmb86
  • Love it! Needs present time when in horizontal mode

    By Dougystyle455
    Love this GPS! 2 things though: 1. I need the present time at the top middle (small) when displayed horizontally in dash. (The time is displayed while having your phone in the vertical position. 2. Could we get a small (NW) or (SE) compass direction sign somewhere on the app too! (Helps out one new territories. Otherwise thanks guys, keep the updates coming.
  • Horrible app

    By Dylan52400
    Always takes u the longest way
  • Overall okay, but bad at time estimate

    By victoriaanne!
    It has helped me avoid cops and find alternate routes, but has made me late multiple times taking routes that ended up being way longer. Also bad at estimating ETA when I’m traffic, does not account for excess traffic even when it’s noted on the WAZE map.....
  • Awesome

    By Twea715
    It’s a great app!!! Always use it when traveling
  • Best Navigation App Hands Down

    By Nauta23
    I drive 60,000 Miles are year. I’ve tried many different navigation apps and this is by far the best one. HANDS DOWN!!!
  • Used to love it.

    By Loving A.B.
    I don’t know what happened, but Waze now gives me the longest and most difficult routes. For example, I was about 55 mins away from my destination when using Google, but the only option Waze gave me added another hour to my travel time. This wasn’t the first time it did that. I’m on the latest version. No idea why it went from the best app to the worst.

    Waze is my fave gps app.
  • iWatch cellular

    By DougMK
    Do you have plans for an iWatch cellular app version of your regular iPhone app? Also, it would be nice if it could speak directions on the iWatch speakers without Bluetooth AirPods. Unrelated, regarding reporting road details, in the Washington DC metropolitan area we have “EZPass” Toll Road that goes parallel in the same direction as does the Capital Beltway. There seems no way to differentiate between the usual free heavily-trafficked main Beltway and the usually free but costly EZPass Toll lanes when reporting traffic or police sightings or speed traps or accidents, etcetera. “Other side of street” does Not work because that’s the opposite direction on the Beltway/toll lanes. May you relay this to your programmers? Thanks much! Doug K
