    Great app I use daily. One UI issue I have is the fact that the new swipe left screen is for carpool... There's already a waze carpool app, don't take precious screen space to show it here. Use it for something more useful like easier reporting or inbox (like it used to be). Doesn't work either Android auto if you don't have a car capable of it (doesn't work in standalone version of Android auto) Full Review

    Wave needs faster turn by turn directions, half the time it almost makes me miss my turns. A coulpe incidents i had to get over quick to exit off the highway. This app isn't fast at all from my experience. I do like the detail technical things of it. Just make the app faster and more accurate because i don't want to turn down anymore alleys. Full Review

    Works really well, UI & UX user friendly and interact shockingly well. Fun to use. However, sometimes waze shows an unusual direction to go. For example waze told me to turn left (ETA 20MINS for example) that i can easily just go straight with good traffic as well which apparently after i chose to not follow waze direction the ETA change from 20mins and down to 12 mins. And this is happen quite often in my case in Jakarta, Indonesia. Please fix this if even possible to do. Thank you Full Review

    4.26 - 4.28 bugs: Taping the speedometer has no function anymore (speed limit reporting or speed alert setting). Sometimes, road traffic and road alerts are not loading on first startup and not considered when calculating routes. You have to restart Waze to fix that. Older versions 4.2x bugs not fixed: Sound volume very low when announcing some long distances and some alerts (Italian tts voice). Cannot backup Waze without root access. Schemes can be improved for visibility. Traffic arrows not visible under navigation line. Full Review

    Great, and getting better all the time! Gets me there faster than anything else. Just make sure to set it to get you there faster, instead of the shortest route. However, I would appreciate the ability to specify several stops (and their order) all at once. Worse is that when adding another stop, it often forgets where we were going. Full Review

    Galaxy S7 or any other phone this is the app. I truly don't go anywhere with out this. Love the fact that it tells you where the cops are ahead. Etc. Updated to the very second. Gives you where all the accidents are reroute you if possible to avoid the standstill traffic there's nothing bad I can say about this get it it's worth it Full Review

    Very helpful when traveling any distance! Better than maps app! Alerts you about any traffic, accidents, cars stops, contruction and police that that may not be visible from your location. Also is great because it won't allow you to do certain things if you are the actual driver so it won't distract you from concentrating on the Rd. Passengers are able to submit any messages to drivers. Voice commands, everything you need is on this app. Full Review

    16 Aug 2017 The app is very up to date, keeping current with real time information and occurances, allowing us users to assist by inputting what we see on the road and or our areas. Very accurate with updated routes no matter how new. Couldn't give 5 stars due to repeated issues of freezing during use in which I have had to uninstall and reinstall during my travels. I hope this will be remedied. Full Review

    Directions per turn by turn are too slow needs sped up. And also when you are arriving at your destination blocking 3/4 of the navigation screen is ridiculous if you haven't arrived. All in all the app is good. Unfortunately I have missed too many turns and destinations due to delayed notifications or blocked screen. I'm using the app because I don't know where I'm going most of the time. Full Review

    I tell me what and which waze to go! Record your own voice...it blows peoples minds! I heard all night "what wait is that you? Thats so cool" and the laughter & conversation peace began like that! I'm keeping waze for sure...not going back to foogle! Yes foogle maps ever! And it gives you up to date road construction areas where the 50's have camera's and where they are only thing they dont do one waze is drive for you! Seriously love it minus the sometimes looping me around the same block! Full Review

    Ralph Brunner Published date: August 18, 2017

    Love this driving app 👍👍👍 It sends traffic reports in realtime, notifies about jams on the route 🚗🚙 and suggests alternative routes. 🏞 The arrival time can be sent to friends, they will get notified automatically if there are delays. ⌚There is no need to fiddle around and write SMS. The friends can also check your position in live. As more users send updates, the traffic is more accurate. Full Review

    It"works" with android auto... If you really stretch the meaning of works. Rarely gets a GPS lock...usually only after you have used Google maps for a while. Construction zones that have been reported daily for weeks never show up. Basically useless at this point. Full Review

    Published date: August 20, 2017

    Good for short trips, traffic info and police reports. Multiple problems for trips longer than a few hours. In those cases, it either can't figure alternate routes or stops responding altogether. Also, reports from fellow Wazers are only as good as the most recent reports. Sometimes police are reported at sites they're long gone from or, if you're the first one on the road that morning, you wind up making all the reports yourself. Full Review

    Use it every drive! On the way to work, it'll have me exit for no apparent reason... and then the reason becomes apparent. This app has probably saved me from at least 10 hours worth of traffic, not to mention all the other notifications that kept me safe. Best GPS app ever!! Full Review

    Scott James Published date: August 18, 2017

    I used to give this app a 5 star rating but the constant popup wanting me to rate it is quite annoying. So as the app has requested I have re rated this app based on the fact that it want you to keep eating it 5 stars when you did it months ago. It now has a rating of 3 stars from me because of the harrassment from the app when I open it. Full Review

    Breno Costa Published date: August 17, 2017

    This app is very unstable in the S8 platform. Trying to search for a location while in route to another makes the app freeze and crash. Trying to request other routes while in route freezes and crashes. Sometimes even just on the app trying to start a navigation, it freezes and crashes. Very hard to like this app for android when it performed so well on the iPhone 6. Full Review

    Everytime I enter a destination it says failed to communicate with routing server or times out. I have four bars and even tried over my home Wi-Fi. Not cool waze. Further, you aren't liked to view the whole route or list of turns like fools m at PS provides. The routing options chosen are limited and not always the best route. Full Review

    Jacob Sanchez Published date: August 20, 2017

    Waze always gives me the best routes and I get to have a little shield when I drive around because I'm in the top 10% in my state! I love how Waze will change my route mid drive if there is an accident or traffic on the predetermined route. Map editing is pretty sick too. Full Review

    Mike Rempel Published date: August 19, 2017

    Many of the features of this app are great. For example the photo radar notification system. The alerts set up by other users for notifying of slow traffic. But the one that bothers me the most that does not seem to work is the construction zones. Currently around my work is a very slow construction zone with a 30 minutes or more delay. This app did not direct me in a longer distance route but shorter time route instead it kept directing me through the construction zone. The advertisement for this app will tell you that it helps to direct you around slow traffic but in my case it does not seem to be doing that at all. Full Review

    Matthew M Published date: August 19, 2017

    This is a good app. but twice my account I was lost because I got a new phone. I had the proper password and followed the protocol I was told to follow on Waze. The first time I was 1700 points away from getting my crown, the second time I was 30,000 points past having my crown. Both times I was very disappointed. I continue to use Waze but only as a tool. I no longer have the fun or competition that I used to have with other friends or drivers. I am disappointed with Waze. Not that this comment is going to make any kind of a difference with you people at Waze but at least I spoke my mind. Full Review

    Edwin Finnerty Published date: August 17, 2017

    Awesome app. So much better than the old TomTom I was using that charged for map updates. It was nice to see where police and road hazards were (as well as being able to quickly report them myself), and the app is super easy to use. I was nervous about going somewhere I'd never been, so using an app that was new to me was scary, but you guys did such a great job that I got there without a problem and the estimated time was dead on. Thank you for this! Full Review

    Douglas Sutton Published date: August 17, 2017

    My rating would be higher if ways are allowed more reporting. I will enter an area with a pothole, turn the corner and find Construction, drive a mile find another pothole or Roadkill or police and be told by wazer that I'm over reporting and will be penalized. This is a good service and could be great if not for all the unreported hazards. Until wazer stops penalizing 4 reporting hazards, it will continue to be somewhat unreliable. Full Review

    Thank you for adding Android Auto, I sometimes have to ask a couple of times tho before it brings up my route. Also GPS accuracy seems to have deteriorated keeps losing me or placing me on wrong road. No problem with Google Maps. Full Review

    If I have to read " route server timeout" or "oops something went wrong" one more time I'm never using the app again. Always buggy and always failing me when I'm frantic and need directions. Overall the app serves its purpose I just wish it did so more reliably. Full Review

    Jerry Colotti Published date: August 16, 2017

    Not always the best directions. Better traffic rerouting than google maps. UPDATE: No longer better than Google maps. Also, you can no longer add pictures even though the app annoyingly asks you to do it. The voice commands rarely work. The app is too slow in giving alerts to exit or make turns. A few months later you still can not add photos. Full Review

    Absolutely awesome. Love the little interactive bits. Very accurate and some places even have the parking lot mapped out. EDIT: just changed it from a four star to a five. And updating comment. I learnt how to contribute to the map by doing updates to my area of driving and adding missing information. Full Review

    Angie Eaton Published date: August 21, 2017

    I like this app, very useful. Two problems: drains my battery so quick, quicker than other map apps. The other quirk is taking the map taking me weird ways, the same or close in time but unusual when the standard way shows no traffic. Full Review

    It's a good satnav and is free, I use it interchangeably with TomTom Go. There are too many distractions when you need to be concentrating on driving. It won't show you which lane(s) you need to be in on motorway junctions etc, like TomTom. I would say it's better for town/city driving than it is on main roads and motorways. Full Review

    Craze Insane Published date: August 19, 2017

    It's amazing for reporting traffic and hazards and police on the road. However I've found its dangerous to report things yourself and when navigating to a new place this app tends to take you a weird way. Simply put it still needs work because all development seems to have stopped. I would personally love it if the reports could be voice activated and I would also love if the navigation was a bit better. I will say that i also love the plan your drive feature, however, once again it's fairly glitchy and only notifies me when I need to leave about 50% of the time so still needs work just like the rest of the app. Full Review

    When I exit the highway and travel on a parallel road it still thinks I'm on the highway, G Maps knows when I exit right away and adjusts accordingly, the direction lag needs work. I do like the alerts alot and works well with Android Auto. Full Review

    מורי ג. ק. Published date: August 23, 2017

    I have to calculate distances in my head because the app tells me the distance to the next turn instead of guiding me, and I have missed so many turns because of that. Also no hands-free navigation (voice commands) which risks my life and have caused other users many accidents to date. Full Review

    Tyronne Aloysius Published date: August 18, 2017

    Nice to see where cops are hiding and where potholes are. Decent traffic info depending on where u are. Better than Google maps, as far as navigation features go, but not reliable. Opening the app sometimes goes to a blank screen and requires me to close and reopen the app. Sometimes lags or flat out freezes as well. This wouldn't be a huge deal, but it is when I'm on the road and wanna get driving quickly. Glad that it finally made it to Android auto but the same problems also transfer over on my car screen.

    Love it, really accurate timing even on long trips through traffic. 2 suggestions, would be great to be able to enable 2 shortcut on the map. 1 for vehicle stopped on shoulder, and 1 for visible police, because it takes way too many clicks to get there otherwise. Full Review

    Svante Morén Published date: August 18, 2017

    Poor handling of locations/destinations as well as Bluetooth audio. Good graphics and navigation handling, if the destination you're able to find is close enough to where you need to go. Poor routing and often very strange routes selected. Also extremely nagging about rating. This is third time I rate the app, and the rating will get lower each time it asks... Full Review

    Needs preference choices as to what things you want to see in the map. Also to enable/disable the buttons to confirm if reported items are actually there or not, and to tell the app to gather all maps/POI as local data on the phone to save cellular. Full Review

    One of the very best apps I've ever used. When fighting rush hour traffic i tried it a few times and it would suggest, according to my local knowledge, crazy routes, so ignored it. Eventually i decided to just go with it a few times and if it was wrong, just delete it. It got me home really quickly and the worse the traffic is the better it saves me from majorly guessing wrong. I trust this app implicitly now. Full Review
