Well,it's certainly improved over the years. Very accurate. Have tried several apps, To find waze is up their with the best of them. Like all these apps, unless you take the time to make adjustments, then you can be taken off a motorway for the shortest route, not the fastest. Shortest route will take you through side streets which is not suitable. That's my experience with these apps. otherwise it's first class, does all one needs and more. Be testing it out soon in Cumbria from Wales, down to Kent and back to Wales. We know all the routes, mainly use it for info and locating an address on arrival. Be interesting to see if it agrees with our own knowledge of the roads. Full Review

I absolutely love this app. It tells you everything you need to know especially where the cops are hiding! Great app that I recommend to many! In like how it's interactive with other users. I used this coming back from Kissimmee (I know the route) i wanted to see if it took me the same way. The only issue we had was the app freezing up,had to restart often. It was very accurate! I love this app and use it over my preinstalled maps. Full Review

I don't like the pop-ups when I'm trying to follow the GPS when Facebook post stuff. Also there needs to be a quicker way of finding a scenic route when there's a traffic accident or detour. Last but not least I do not like it when it sends me on the freeway when I can just take a back road because literally I'm on the freeway for 2 minutes and then coming right back off Full Review

I liked it better when I first downloaded it about 2yrs ago I think it was. Now seems to be taking through other routes and it tells me something is maybe 5 miles away but when I actually click on my out changes to 18miles away. Before, out would route me of the freeway if it sensed traffic in front building up, now I sit in traffic a lot.. Full Review

Thanks to user input, this app has the most up-to-date free traffic and camera information. It seems to use very little data. However it can loose GPS which can be frustrating. (Google maps seems always to be a good backup). Also having an issue with trying to delete a huge list of previous searches. This does not work. I have to delete each search individually. Also finding petrol stations is not working at this time. Still needs some improvements. Otherwise a great app not to be without. Full Review

1) more and better choice interactions need 2) Add category for "Banks and ATMs" into search categories Always getting better! Haven't tried the new carpool feature yet. I wish there would be some more work put into voice inputs though. Especially direct from the Google Assistant. Waze always a 5.0 in my book! Full Review

It's quick and easy for getting most places. There are times when I'd rather take my own route, and can even shave a couple of minutes off doing so, but it's great as a general guide. I like the voices I can choose, sometimes, too. I'd like to see features added like, no left turns without a stoplight there, or which lane moves the fastest on this freeway in this section. Oh, and it would be great if it would selectively send its favorites to a route with less traffic...but I digress... Good app, overall. Full Review

I love this app the only issue I have is. This tells you if a tiny object is reported on the road but it wont tell you that a traffic slow down has been report. No "traffic reported heavy ahead" seriously as a truck driver using your app it would be very helpful because if we don't see it we can't just stop quickly. If we had a heads up of traffic slow down we could be aware. It would be awesome. Full Review

Awesome app! The only issue I have had Was during the hurricane here in Florida. Trying to report trees on the interstate, I was Told that I was reporting too many times And that I would be banned from sending reports in, It's I did not stop. To me, this was a critical time in Florida knowing which roads were safe, which roads were not safe, in where the debris lie. I'm sure that I received an automatic response May to decrease faulty reporting, but this is something they need to look into. Other than this, the app is marvelous! Full Review

This is an app i use everyday but seems to have a lot of issue. Wase takes you through too many streets to get you to where you are going. A straight route could have been better; and why always trying to take you to the highway? A lot of time a highway is not necessary. Also I wish they make the app better to be able to take you to the main gate when going to a gated community. A lot of times it takes you to the wrong gate and while you are trying to find the right entrance it would keep trying to make you U-turn to the wrong gate. Also sometimes it takes you to the back door of businesses instead of the front. Now talking about updates, it takes too long to update the roads that are closed, and truly frustrating when Wase takes you to a closed road with no other options. I do like this app and just wish they can make it better. Thanks Full Review

must try! Waze gives you alternative routes, police positioning on way to destination, wazers updates wrecks along the way to destination. You can see other wazers that use the same app on your phone. You can change the curser to different skins to fit your profile. It is enjoyable and convenient to use.. try this app Full Review

Great app. But I failed to understand why "Heavy rain" is not included in the Hazards but instead see "Ice on the road" How is it possible to have ice on the road in the tropics? It has been months and nothing has been done to correct it since I posted this feedback. Also, Waze would from time to time brings me to strange and difficult roads to drive. I often have to override it. I had it if I do not know the roads at all. Full Review

Falls short in customer support. App changed my account points to zero and member time to 1 day.Then I couldn't log in. Opened 4 new accounts b4 I could consistently log in. Had to start all over as a baby water. Great while driving, though. Full Review

Since enabled in android auto it became my favourite. Last update ruined it, as it doesn't lock on the route any more, but only in android auto mode. In standalone/phone mode it is behaving properly as always. Please fix android auto... Updated**** Apparently, on android auto it didn't locked on route nor satellites only when my HTC m9 was in power saving mode. Strange as gmaps works fine with same power settings. Hurray...

Best for real time traffic... Slightly better than Google maps sure to use input... It's rerouting could use a little work (often says things like make a-turn in order to stay on original plan rather than deviate to another route). Overall... I've still had a 5 star experience. Full Review

Great app for what it is intended to do but ... no ability to mitigate burn ins on OLED screens. It is by design that driver's run it for hours often in bright daylight. Over time static UI elements cause faint but permanent spots on screen. Mitigation options are simple but not implemented. Full Review

I had originally rated Waze with 5 stars. However, it's incessant nagging for me to rate the app (especially since I had already done so) caused me to lower my original rating. I will continue to lower my rating if Waze continues to nag me for ratings. Helps me avoid traffic. Wish it would let me shut off alerts and still hear directions. Full Review

I've had to downgrade from 5 stars to 2. The GPS bug absolutely kills this app. The supposed fixes haven't worked on my Moto X. The worst part is this bug has been known for over a year with no fixes and almost no acknowledgement from the developer. This used to be an amazing app. Update 10/10/17: It looks like the last update fixed the GPS issue. Waze is back to a 5-star for me! Full Review

14th October 2017 I am beginning to have second thoughts about Waze, it gives lots of trouble now,recently. Waze will get you there on time and safely if you hook up the app properly and follow directions given most of the time. Now remember, information that is given by you will be information used by someone else, so you too must give reliable information. Waze is the Way. Full Review

Accurate, user-friendly, and the crowd sourced traffic information is genius. Users can report speed traps, stopped vehicles, construction, accidents, etc. Being able to see that on some roads has changed my travel plans and saved me time more times than I can count. It also has several settings of varying degrees of leniency for alerting you of speed limits/when you're breaking speed limits. Can also connect with spotify to avoid switching through apps while driving. Full Review

Waze is by far the best navigation app around on any platform in my humble opinion. With Google acquiring it makes it even better with a massive community of map editors and people who update incidents on the map. Few niggley bits that I have contacted support about which I am waiting for response. Other then that great work and keep it up. Thank you Full Review

Would be great if the mapping system was competent. It seems to be programmed in a way that it will literally never tell you to turn around. So one turn in my route was blocked off and instead of having me go back a quarter mile to the slightly longer turn before that, it sent me 3 miles away, THEN turned me around and sent me all the way back that 3 mile road to the turn. If it's gps and mapping system worked even half as good as the default systems on my phone then I would've loved it. But now I missed an important event and drove home empty handed and fuming.

Tryed on my J5 (factory updated marshmallow firmware), but could not make it work. At first it could not even find the target address, finally somehow it could but did nothing. No map, no navigation. And again: tried on an S3, at least did work at home, froze when started on the highway. After 2 restart it started to navigate, but overheated. Full Review

Since we live in a country that has no street numbers or names; this application works quite well inspite of the aforementioned situation. It provides very accurate directions and traffic reports are very useful. I might have goten lost tons of times if it weren't for this application. My only complaint is that the recalculation of route makes the navigation slow. Full Review

Great app and I love the live traffic. Always finds the quickest way home. I think the user inputs like cars stopped, police, etc should be removed. Other drivers slow down for no reason when thr app shows things like police. Most of the time tere isn't anything there. And putting these things in from users is distracted driving. And sometimes I feel this spp makes traffic worse at times. Full Review

I love Waze! My favorite feature is the Po Po alert. Although not always accurate, of which cause is any number of reasons, it is accurate enough to be effective and I'm certain the Waze app has saved me from more than a couple of speeding tickets! The re-routing feature is great! It has taken me on some pretty fun detours and doesn't discriminate which neighborhood to avoid. It just gets me where I need to go, taking the fastest route available. If you drive a lot for work, or just casual travel and you like to go fast, you should be using Waze! Full Review

It will not route for me. I keep getting routing errors on both ios and Android. It simply does not work. Wish it did because I would live to try it but right now it has me quite frustrated. Google maps works though and it works well. Back to gmaps I go. Full Review

I would have given it 5 stars but recently at crucial times in my commute, the app says turn left then turn right. The problem is,,I was on a stretch on highway that had no exit nor service roads. Otherwise it's a HAVE TO HAVE APP!! Full Review

This would of been a 5 star, but they did not reply to an issue i have and that it when i go to the options to send an instant camera,hold ups etc it says cant send while INVISIBLE. Yet i have changed nothing. If they tell me how to solve this will changed to 5 stars. Full Review

I get so frustrated with the carpool pop-up popping up all the time. I'm not going to carpool. I have never carpooled. I cannot figure out how to tell Waze to stop bugging me with that pop up so, I mostly use Google Maps. Additionally, I thought that Waze was supposed to learn my route, but I live on a corner with a direct shot to the freeway, but Waze always wants me to go around the block. This has been going on for the last year or so that I have been using it. It has not learned the most direct route and actually tries to send me three blocks out of my way. Disappointing.

Glitches galore! Wasted an hour of my time this morning taking me through a large circle of traffic jam..kept changing routes on me (and no i wasn't disobeying their turn by turn).. when i realized i was brought to the same spot i was in one hour prior (and the upcoming route was going to have me do the same, i switched to Google maps which worked great Full Review

Really love it especially the police reports. I just wish that there would be a way to pause it when stopping at a gas station or rest stop, right now I'm forced to either cancel out or the app assumes that I'm not moving because I'm stuck in traffic! A couple of other quirks too but the developer doesn't seem responsive to these suggestions. Full Review

This app is extremely helpful and very accurate. Love the help the fellow wazers give with the various reports users can send. Updates how long your route will take depending on stops and traffic. Will alert you when you need to leave for a planned trip so you arrive on time! Full Review

Great app. But last update brought hang-ups. 1 - each time on app start. After pressing menu button to navigate you have to wait a few seconds the Waze loads your history. Some other app hangs noticed using different menus. Full Review

Did love the app & thank you for adding Android Auto. But I often have to ask a few of times before it brings up my route & location accuracy is terrible. I have a Oneplus 3T & don't have the problem with Google Maps. Also roundabout exit numbers are a bit small. Just got the Oreo beta Waze does not work anymore. Full Review

I loved everything about this app Except that it tells you to turn almost after the turn has passed you so I almost always miss my turn unless I'm constantly looking at my phone to see the turn before they say it. I wish I could just listen to the app and go but I can't without missing turns. Other than that this app is perfect. Full Review

Dear Waze, you have the smoothest, intuitive maps overlay and I really appreciate your intelligent accident avoidance, but please for the love of God can you get the app to not crash 5 times in one journey every journey, I'd even take crashing 2x but your such a faff I'd rather just follow road signs and hope for the best. So thank you for showing what the future might look like one day with a great nav app just pop me a message when you actually get it working. Best Wishes A hacked off ex-wazer Full Review

I wish Waze would consistently tell me the NAME of the street I need to turn on, not just "turn left in 400 feet." I also wish it would tell me whether the destination is on the left or the right. And it would be nice if it also restated the street number on arrival: "You have arrived at 300 Main Street," instead of just "You have arrived." Full Review

someone told me about this app and how it helps you see cop or camera locations and also that it is own by Google but there is a big difference in both apps. waze never tells you about which lane is better to take turns. Also big drawback is the name of road. there is "A" numbered road in australia which also have other names. waze never mentioned if i am turning to A6 or A3 or A12 rather it speaks the name of that road which is confusing as green signs on the road shows name of the road in small font and A number in the big font. hence i always missed my turn Full Review

I downloaded the app because of extensive construction around my neighborhood. After using it for a week, almost every Drive took longer than waze predicted. Not so helpful in my situation. Also, I found the voice fairly annoying. Full Review
