    Ever since the update in late 2017 the Waze app has never been the same. Won't work at all! Even after uninstalling, reinstalling several times, and losing all my saved drives. Make it work again, and I will update my review. Until then, it's Google Maps for me. At least it works properly. Waze will be uninstalled after I post this. I will check back here to see if any rep actually gives some constructive input. Not holding my breath though. Full Review

    Would be great if the Android version worked in upside-down portrait orientation like the iOS version does. Seems like a simple change. I usually put my phone in the car cup holder and it's difficult to charge my phone and use the app at the same time because the charger jack is at the bottom and I can't flip the phone upside down if I use Waze.

    I loved using Waze and I was racking up a lot of points. When signing into a new phone my account says I put in the wrong information. I reset the pw in the app and made sure I typed it correctly and it seemed to have not made it to the server (old pw didn't work either). Customer service was no help to recover the account.

    Frequent crashes and a clunky interface. I was using this app recently for a long 14 hour road trip. When I went a Seperate route, there were two available, the app constantly tried to turn me around instead of rerouting automatically. Google maps automatically picked up on the change. Frequently crashed when I tried to zoom in or out and just a hard to navigate interface. Absolutely going back to using Google maps. Showing the speed limit was nice but most other features were entirely pointless and distracting. Full Review

    Gamma Light Published date: January 15, 2018

    Overall lack of settings but most importantly, it doesn't auto dim with low light, this is a big problem. There's no satellite view only a vibrant blue line on an excessively bright white background. Seems finicky so far but could have potential.. Full Review

    I'm so glad one of my customer's recommended this app to me. It's really easy to use and helpful when people report things to look out for. I world give this app 5 stars if it had the option to show road conditions bc living in the north central and driving in the winter it's really helpful to see what route may be the least hazardous.

    Brendon Chu Published date: January 10, 2018

    No Android Auto phone app makes it impossible to use for users living in cities with strict distracted driving laws. Also the celebrity voices appear to be region locked and are not available outside of USA. The routing is not as good as Google Maps and makes some mistakes. Full Review

    Andy Clarke Published date: January 16, 2018

    Since an update towards the end of last year, the navigation position has been lagging behind your current actual position. I can be past a road and it still thinks it hasn't got there yet. Google Maps has no such issue. Until that's fixed it makes it very hard to navigate new places. Google Pixel 2 XL Full Review

    Please fix the no gps bug.i'm using samsung galaxi s8. I edit my rate to waze from 1 star to 5 stars as i've found that the problem was from my phone and already solved by now. The waze application is doing great now. Full Review

    I usually use Google Maps but this app is SO MUCH BETTER! Very useful for showing where Police Cars are. The only thing bad about it is it doesn't have a street view. Maybe you guys could add that feature as well. Try it Guys. It's AWESOME!!!💯 Full Review

    Update : your map editors are useless. I've reported three issues so far and all three times they corrected me by what they found on the internet, yet you can't respond or send screenshots or even photos to tell him how wrong they are. How is that editing???? Fun for a little while, Then you're just bombarded with ads and a cog in the machine. I reached the top 300000 in my area and the highest level possible and I got nothing??? No new cars, no new voices, no new features. Just more ads.... Full Review

    Its a good app and like everything about the app. But one thing i dont like is that the app does not have lane assist and i live in SF and i have taken the wrong exits and took the wrong freeway using waze. Going to use google maps for now because google maps have lane assist and hopefully waze can get lane assist on the waze app. Full Review

    Purple Road name bubbles covers all the important alerts. Can't disable purple road name bubbles. Stupid. What's the point of having alerts when you can barely see them because the purple bubble road names keeps covering those alerts? Full Review

    App just goes around in an endless loop resending verification texts when trying to add friends. Also it's not always possible to report a problem whilst driving and it cannot be added retrospectively. Full Review

    Have to reduce my rating for Waze since the last update. The new voice recognition barely works. I usually listens then goes back to the home screen. It was fine. Should have been left alone. I have to type everything now. Full Review

    Published date: January 15, 2018

    Not bad, except for the speed symbol being in kph instead of mph and there doesn't seem to be a way of altering it. Absolute waste of time, freezes after 5 minutes. Google maps just as bad. Full Review

    Uesless app with high resource demand and unable to function once u multitask even on a phone with snapdragon 821 processor, 6gb ram and 128GB storage. google maps is better n for lite app. Also, unable to handle simultaneous internet data and GPS as my app keeps showing no network or no GPS whilst there are no problems if I'm using google maps.

    This is the best navigation application. **Issue - Using "OK Waze" breaks all Google Assistant functionality when it is running. Please fix this issue! I like OK Waze, but I need Assistant to work when driving, more than any other time. Full Review

    I loved this app. I don't know what happen but I switched to an s5 and I suddenly I can't receive eta from other members. It tried taking me off a main road and make my trip an hour longer wouldn't even offer the road I was on in the trip options. It makes me sad I really liked this app I don't know what problem is.

    Andrei Stanciu Published date: January 14, 2018

    It is usefull only in unknown locations, but this is for any gps app....in your location, it does not show you the shortest way (half of times if you change the way yourself it will actually update with the fact that you will arrive to your destination faster) andddd it makes you go around even distances of 10 km, just for 1 min short on ETA? Seriously useless Full Review

    John Johnston Published date: January 10, 2018

    Can we PLEASE have the option to configure the speed alert to sound continuously until the speed drops back to the limit? The brief "beep beep" is to easy to miss, and NZ speeding penalties cost. Nice to have would be the ability to choose our own alert notification. Otherwise, this app is first-class Full Review

    Kevin Rethual Published date: January 13, 2018

    Used to be really great, but lately very erratic. It can take up to a minute or more to calculate the route when it used to be within seconds. Also, the ETA accuracy varies wildly. It can show 30 mins, and when you recalculate a few seconds later tell you it's 45 mins. It's just become unreliable. I'm from Malaysia. Full Review

    Trevor Davies Published date: January 13, 2018

    Waze continously freezes or switches off either during a journey or while starting up. It's a total waste of time contacting them. It's NOT my phone!!! As this problem occurs on 3 different phones. When Waze decides to work it's excellent. WHEN it decides to work. Looks like the old faithful Google Drive App might have to be reinstalled after all. Thanks WAZE for all your NON support. Full Review

    Great app... The display of the speed limit useful but unfortunately not consistent. It doesn't even always show for the same route that it has shown previously. Not sure why sometimes it works and otherwise not...? Full Review

    Great app, more accurate for updated routes than Google maps. Choice number one when it comes to going to unknown place and not sure about the road construction in that area. Google maps will always fail, waze never Full Review

    I just saw the news about our Waze App😬 Waze has kept me from losing my job 2x from ridiculous unexpected traffic jams by re-routing me thru the BEST "BACK-WAYS" I didnt even know existed. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK WAZE Full Review

    Chima Alozie Published date: January 12, 2018

    VERY GOOD! Really love this App. Can it be improved, yes! I especially like that when driving, input is disabled. But that defeats the whole aim on safety when you have one too many steps in reporting incidents. (See Coyote app for example) It would also be nice to have an alert when there is a speed camera. There is a beacon flashing on the route to signify this, but again you have to keep your eye on your device to know this as there is no audible alert (Again this isn't safe) This, dear Waze will give your users unending smiles and win you more Stars.

    Jovi Dacanay Published date: January 11, 2018

    Has saved me much time and effort especially in convincing drivers on better routes. Can be wrong at times, but I think that the accuracy of the traffic situation of the suggested routes depend on reports. Once I got stuck at Timog Avenue because Waze suggested it. So, since then, I avoided passing at Timog during that time period. Full Review

    Jeff Chen Published date: January 14, 2018

    Used this to carpool around the Bay. Promo code: SHIHJ8dOsT. For $30 for new driver or 1 free ride. Matching is hit or miss due to driver picking the rider. But it's the cheapest carpool option and still the best paying for drivers since Waze doesn't take a cut. It matches fine in my area. Full Review

    Jorge Madera Published date: January 12, 2018

    Excellent program. Notifications (accidents, police, etc) have a counter to show how many waze users have verified. Great for long distance driving and extremely accurate. I also like the ability for users to place map markers for other wazers. Full Review

    Couldn't think of doing a long journey without Waze!! I find myself using this over my car's built-in satnav, and even when I know my route, as the traffic avoidance is great! Highly recommend! Full Review

    Amazing program I would use it more if it was not such a data killer ! If u use Waze you will eat up 6 gigs of data a month in just a short few trips . That's the only issue I have with it so I use Googlemaps 90 percent of the time. Waze is aware of the issue but clearly wont resolve the issue. Full Review

    Does not work with Android Auto on LG5. Would only display "Proceed to highlighted route" even when on the route. Reinstalled and started working but then locked up during route. Google maps works fine on the same phone. Full Review

    Great traffic and directions app, except for burn in on screen. This is the only reason for 3 start rating, otherwise would rather it 5 stars. Downside is on gs3 cm the audio sometimes won't work when screen is off/locked. Full Review

    Victor J Published date: January 18, 2018

    I like this app very much, the reason for the 3 stars is that this app will take you to the alleys, at least in the Chicago area. I believe it should take you to the main street address instead of the back of the house. After the new update the app crashes a lot and now requires 4 taps to start navigation. Full Review
