  • Love that App

    By Duduik
    Thank you so much. 😁❤️
  • Loved until this update

    By pretty_lady3
    It no longer works in my ‘16 Ford Expedition with Sync 3. Shouldn’t have stopped the SDL format. Pretty crappy.

    By LNG1996
    the app hasn’t even been detecting traffic, nevertheless avoiding it, for the past few months now. the maps often can’t detect your precise location on the road therefore causing a significant delay for reroutes/adjustments on your route. manually exiting the trip & starting a new trip to the exact same destination is MINUTES faster than the apps current adjustment period. FIGURE IT OUT ASAP!!!
  • Oh how I used to love thee…

    By Trixie-1213
    You were great, steadfast and loyal, and reliable- I knew I could count on you. Until some update happened and now this trust is broken along with this app. Why can’t you stay connected to my GPS?? I have a great phone. Keep everything updated. Have uninstalled then reinstalled. GPS works great in other map apps. This is a WAZE problem!!!!! Please fix!
  • Wastes time instead of saving time

    By alianna gigi
    This app would be great if it weren’t for the constant exit jumping. This app will take you 15 minutes out of your way just to shave 2 minutes off of your ETA. The alternate routes never save time and the app often navigates you to heavy traffic. The map also takes too long to re-center, so if you make a turn you’re left hanging without directions for 30-60 seconds. I used to love this app but I’ve been inconvenienced too many times.
  • “sleep mode?”

    By d-dub in tx
    What is this crappy new sleep mode? Total waste of time.
  • My Waze search bar takes up 1/3 of screen

    By sberg23
    Can’t give this latest update more than 2 stars as long as the My Waze search bar takes up 1/3 of the screen while in landscape mode. Who at Waze thought/still thinks this is a good idea?! And to say it will auto-disappear over time is not an acceptable solution. Very poor design. Give us the option to hide this bar and my score will improve.
  • More accessible

    By the mandes
    Wishes it would access to iwatch
  • Worst traffic app EVER!

    By TCWang90802
    Takes you on these side misadventures through unfamiliar and potentially dangerous areas. Use Maps or Google Maps.
  • Time Zone Change!

    By yzbuddha
    App doesn’t account for the time zone change with estimated arrival or planning trips. This would be a simple (and great!) update.
  • Terrible

    By NY batman
    Here I am driving from NY to Florida. I get onto 95 thinking great the only reason I’m using this app is for the user base. Warnings of Police and traffic etc and then it takes me off. I’m driving so i assume something is up ahead and listen to get off the exit. This brings me to a Toll then it leads me into a circle to the same toll (paying both ways) to bring me right back onto 95. I have not been so annoyed in a long time. Not only did it waist my time but made me pay 2 tolls
  • Bad speedometer

    By Steve 8178
    The MPH when I am traveling at 75 shows 88 in the app. It’s a new 5G phone.
  • Spoken directions = missed turns.

    By ThisNicknameBetterBeAvailable
    Keeping eyes on the road relying on the app to announce directions is lagging horribly. If turn lanes where you go are long and fill up quickly this app is not for you, you won’t be alerted until you are passing by the cars in the turn lane.
  • Amazing maps app

    By jcrehm06
    Lots of customization, easy to navigate the menus, great to use for Apple carplay, and it’s really really good for avoiding traffic
  • Waze no longer supports SDL

    By rover_97
    According to Waze.com: “As of July 2021, Waze no longer supports SmartDeviceLink. If you encounter issues with this system, please reach out to your device manufacturer or car dealership for assistance.” Thanks a lot Waze for not telling us you were going to do this. You have p***ed off a lot of Ford Sync 3 drivers.
  • Now it’s terrible

    By RiMi in Clebee
    Waze used to be great but now it unusable. No maps. Associates addresses with the wrong city. The on line fixed don’t work. I’ve deleted and redownloaded and get the same issues.
  • 2021 and can’t copy&paste

    By anonnnn
    A navigation app in 2021 can’t let you copy and paste an address. You have to manually type it in. Wow
  • I did not want a toll route and it sent me to one anyway

    By Mr Kachow
    Before I began drivng, I specifically selected the only non-toll route available to get home since I was not that far from home (only about 30 minutes) and a toll route would not have been necessary. Once I began driving, Waze re-routed me to a toll route and by the time I realized it I couldn’t do anything about it. The different route was not even an improvement since it took me further away from home before then sending me towards home, and this route had slowed traffic due to construction. Is Waze set up to get people to pay for toll routes? Because I shouldn’t automatically be getting sent down toll roads after I already selected a non-toll route. I know now that there is a setting to avoid toll roads, but it should not be the default to keep trying to send users down toll routes, especially since I had specifically selected a non toll route starting out.
  • Doesn’t avoid traffic

    By pat j f
    Doesn’t avoid traffic. Often doubles or even triples my commute by picking the heaviest traffic routes. It will pick a route with an arrival time but I consistently have to add anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to it. Maybe it’s impossible to beat traffic in my area but the app still doesn’t do what it’s intended.
  • They wouldn’t publish my review

    By Loper85
    Not surprised
  • Amazing app

    By daylynn05
    I use this app often when traveling! And have always been impressed with it! Two things I would add to the app! 1) A tab to choose to warn others about pedestrians walking on the side of the road. 2) A tab to be able to warn others about driving into rain. I see that there is an option for flooding but rain doesn’t always end in flooding. However, it always helps others to know if they are driving into a rain storm! Overall I love this app!
  • Somehow Getting Worse

    By NoMoreWaze
    This app used to be good. Now, it just gets you lost. I don’t know how it an app like this could actually get worse, but it did. It’s garbage.
  • Sound

    By Cmmmd
    I have a difficult time getting talking directions. Can’t figure why it works sometimes and others not. Much safer when it works!
  • Too many ads

    By Frustratedappleuser
    This is the fourth time this week where I accidentally pressed on an ad and took me to the company wrong direction.
  • Great but

    By Breck911
    Great app. Really fun and useful. But when I search for something and I tap on the map to look around me, why doesn’t the app support tap on the place to start navigating? That’s a huge oversight. Get it together and fix it. And I mean soon or we’re all going back to a different app that supports it.
  • Used to be good.

    By deborahdefranco
    Kept getting Waze can’t connect to gps. Went through loads of steps and support emails and their final answer is we can’t fix it. I used to love this app and went to war with people who preferred google maps, but now I see that stability is king.
  • Fix Ford Issues!

    By Nicole79nc
    This app worked great until this update. Now I can’t connect Waze to my Ford SYNC! Update: it’s been 2 weeks and y’all still can’t deliver a fix for Ford SYNC??????
  • Great for cross country travel.

    By Ganashii
    Its amazing for traveling between states. Especially with cop,hazards and constructions alerts. And love that gas prices are on real time.
  • No connection network error after upgrading

    By Amir panahi
    This application after upgrading to 4.75 crashes as soon as i open that and the error message showes” no connection network” both in my iphone and ipad . And in fact is useless
  • App randomly closes with no warning

    By nigerianpufferfish
    About my 5th time to miss an exit because the app will randomly close with no warning at all. No buttons clicked nothing, just open the phone to waze not even open, I love waze but looks like I’ll just have to start using Google as I actually have trouble getting Google to stop giving me directions.
  • Love at first drive

    By KKel
    I have been using Waze for several years. A couple of suggestions- - 1. Put an icon on the map, or routes tab to easier choose “avoid freeway”. Having to navigate to that while trying to travel is too clunky. 2. Allow a weather maps overlay. It’d be awesome to see the weather on a particular route, especially when bad weather is around. 3. BRING BACK SEE FRIENDS! I do NOT want to connect Waze to Facebook in order to see where my family is. I really don’t care about my FB friends location. Thank you!
  • I guess every car app is Uber now

    By Molly23
    I redownloaded this app after a long hiatus because there was a global panini happening and I wasn't driving anywhere. Now half of the toolbar at the bottom is dedicated to a new-ish Carpool feature, where I guess randos can hail you & ride in your car? That's a big No Thanks for me. The Carpool feature requires an opt-in & some authentication before sharing your info with riders, BUT there is no way to opt out & get it off my screen. RUDE. Deleting immediately. Google ruins everything it acquires without exception.
  • Recently, directions went downhill

    By jcstout82
    Within the last month or so, I’ve had two pretty costly issues. You can only see part of the address in the search bar, and it doesn’t show you the location of the destination that it assumes you’re intending to go. I ended up being routed to incorrect locations that were equidistant from my current location but an hour away from where I’d intended to go. Waze doesn’t give you the bird’s eye view of the destination prior to getting started (like Google Maps does); you also can’t see the entire address (city) in the search bar to ensure it’s correct. The last straw was when I entered the street address and city, picked the top choice, and I still received guidance to the wrong town. The mileage and travel time were incredibly similar and, given that Waze routes around traffic, it wasn’t until I was halfway to the “destination” that I realized things were very wrong. I drive a lot for work and really appreciated how Waze helped me navigate around accidents and gave me a head’s up about hazards, but I don’t trust it anymore. If you know your route and just want to see if there are police along the way, use Waze. If you’re looking for actual navigation then use Google Maps or some other app.
  • The best navigation app no cap

    By Kelly22901
    Most up to date in terms of road closures and cops on the road and stuff. Def recommend
  • Love Waze but

    By Wow, slow down
    I have been using it for years and I know it saved me many times when driving to Vegas and getting those alerts. As of a few updates ago when I now launch it it tells me that I need to turn on Location Services. It is on including precise location. I uninstalled and reinstalled and I still have the same issue. Annoying. Does anyone have any ideas? Developer how can I fix it? I’ll add the star once it’s fixed. Thank you
  • Travel Help

    By Sammy9.5
    We travel nationally by a 2002 SAAB 9.5 Station Wagon. We lodge nightly in a pet friendly motel usually a Motel 6 or LaQuinta. We are currently lodged in the Cedar Island Resort (actually a motel) located adjacent to the NCDOT Ferry to Ocracoke, Outer Banks, NC. WAZE is the 5-star GPS App we use to guide all our travel across the US, Canada, and Alaska. WAZE is user friendly, provides easy to follow verbal directions and meaningful traffic alerts including delays, construction, alternate routes, routes, hazards information. It’s uncanny how timely, accurate and ‘right on’ police alerts, visible, hidden, which side of the road, ‘ahead’ area announced. WAZE is a no brainer if you travel by POV across the US or locally. Being a ‘WAZER’ is a best bet, street smart. 🇺🇸👍🌴😎🌴👍🇺🇸
  • App not working

    By Tortugamex
    The app keeps crashing, while I have it set to a destination and a few minutes ok have passed tha app turns off.
  • Missed My Auto Service Today!

    By rod.musselman
    Took off driving to get my oil changed & started my GPS, just in case…. I was soon reversed in direction & taken on a long drive to nowhere! When the application finally announced that I had arrived at my destination, I wasn’t even close: probably 45 minutes away. Next time, I’ll use a different app & plan my drive ahead of time, viewing a map overview of the coming trip. Thank you for educating me to use alternative mobile GPS options!
  • App

    By DavidElias2020
    Excelent aplication
  • not great

    By jessicaroberts2
    I used to love this app but recently it hasn’t been telling me about traffic until I’m actually in the traffic. I leave at the same time every day and it always tells me it’s gonna take me the same time to get there but for some reason it never adds in the traffic time, even if it’s already been reported.
  • App needs updates

    By Wichli
    This used to be my go to driving directions and traffic app. It used to give me great alternate routes to avoid traffic jams and accidents. Now, it sends me into jams even when many users post incidences. Also needs a map update on new roads and on/off ramps on highways. Added 10 minutes to my drive because the app didn’t reflect an off ramp that has existed for 8 months.
  • Gives the wrong distance

    By Fun finder mom
    The app used to be good but now it gives you a different distance when you look at the drive and when you start the drive
  • Great copilot

    By V3093
    Great app! Very helpful when traveling to find out about hazards in road and accidents. Being able to report police keeps you out of tickets and keeps police safer because you are aware of them. This app has kept me from hitting stuff in road. Very helpful app!
  • Love Hate

    By Addicted lg
    Waze I have a Love Hate relationship with your App. Love the layout and ease of use. LOVE the traffic updates and hazards and police alerts. HATE the carpool option constantly being accidentally brought up. Should be a check box if you use the feature that allows that to be brought up with the shortcut otherwise it stays menu driven. HATE the lack of option to opt out of the recalculated faster route that pops up. It has never once been the faster option. In fact this evening it added 30 mins to a 4 hour drive. It should ask you to accept the new calculated route. It should also calculate the new route time assuming all red lights. Today it took me off of 95S a major hwy to a 6 lane road with stop lights. It was in no way faster. It did it twice to me then kept recalculating way too often to try to force me onto the new route when I decided to ignore it. You should incorporate the new EZ Pass fast lanes. I used one on this drive and it kept recalculating the route as it couldn’t figure out where I was apparently. This is very annoying as it constantly interrupts the music or phone call you have going on.
  • Used for five years, no longer works

    By aitansmom
    I have use this for at least five years and have loved it. I have raved about it and told Everyone to download it. In the last six months I cannot get it to even go on half the time and it starts to navigate me from a totally different area. Please please fix
  • Worst navigation app on the planet

    By Wid22222345
    If you hate your free time, and love to live life in constant traffic, use this app. Waze goes above and beyond to put you in the least efficient routes. They are an app that gets paid by businesses in order to suggest routes that give them more foot traffic. Used to love this app. Shows who they are truly prioritizing.
  • We would be lost without you!

    By BrotherBill54
    I am new to using the WAZE app in my car even though I installed it last year. I just retired from charter bus driving and was using a rather large screen gps. It just didn’t fit well in my car window. I decided to try the WAZE app on my phone and I am very pleased with its performance and screen size. The directions are clear and accurate and the feedback from other users regarding road conditions up ahead is a huge advantage.

    This app is horrible! Always waiting for gps. Can’t find a address ans always recommended address that not even close to me smh google maps is way better only thing about Waze is the cop notifications
