Waze Pros: It quickly updates when a new road is built At navigates you around traffic more than Google Maps It warns you of police who have been reported by other drivers It warns you about red light cameras Cons: Twice now, I’ve entered a destination then it takes me somewhere else instead. It gives no indication where it will take you it just starts and shows no and address. When you arrive at an address it does not leave the destination on the screen. So if you forget the address number, you have to open up Waze and look for your previous search Sometimes Waze does not remember a previous search even right after you type it in “Watch out. Vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead.” Except the vehicle is 30 feet off onto the shoulder but people report it because they want “points.” Sometimes it’s too late by the time it tells you to exit. When you report an obstacle in the road or a police officer at Marks the Spot way past when you actually press the button to start the report It says “leftuh” “straightuh” and sometimes “rightuh” It does not auto fill when I type in an address of a place I have already favorited... Even if I put the whole number of the address. It asks you if you were the driver or passenger as if it will stop you from texting and driving. It’s just an extra click... an extra distraction.

I loved this feature whenever I’d “Plan A Trip”. It would send me a phone notification letting me know it was time to leave and if traffic built up it would let me know if I had to leave earlier with a notification. But ever since I got the new iPhone 8 and have all the new iOS updates I haven’t received any notifications. I’ve tried deleting the app to fix this glitch and also made sure the notification feature is turn on in both the app and on my phone settings and still no “Time To Leave” notification come through. I do receive other notification from the app but just not the “Time To Leave” notifications. Please fix this glitch so I can use this app to its full ability please! Thx

I love mostly every feature of this app, except the location preference needs an option of knowing my location "while using google" the app. I do not like apps ALWAYS using my location.. and always using my battery! Other complaint is I wish waze would notify me there has been reports of congested traffic ahead (without a wreck being reported) and let me know that of a possible different route! I use this app because I work downtown in my area and I prefer not to be stuck on the interstate due to merging delays and construction delays when there has already been reports of slow traffic. Also please make an Apple Watch compatible app!!

For the past few days the app has not changed my points on my scoreboard. The last time this happened it was updating that update ended up to be a nightmare. I honestly hope that this is not happening right now. You need to stop freezing the points so it can update. This is ridiculous and not to mention dumb when this happens. I also would like to say that it would be nice when it has no limits to the number of times that you can click on it. When you do not drive that much and then you do it would be nice if it was the case. The other thing is that it would be nice if you can click on it when you are walking and you can help the other fellow members in the area out when they are there. I also wish that there was something that helps with the parking lot. One I think that I will remember where I park the car and two it is really annoying when it pops up about a parking spot. The other thing is that if someone drops me off somewhere else I feel like I have to drive the car in the neighborhood just to get it back to where I live. Also to what is wrong with the fact that it needs to have wifi in order for it to work. What is wrong with the slow updates that takes three days to get any points after you have driven?

My first problem with this app is that it would change routes on me all of the sudden, it was frustrating and I don’t need that kind of distraction - you can’t expect me to keep my eyes glued onto my phone to watch if it changed routes. Like at least let me know before hand that the route was changed. I deleted the app but then decided to give it a second chance because I like the community aspect of it. I like how it told me what areas were slow, where construction was, where police were, as well as comments from other divers. While driving I came across an accident, traffic was slow because they closed down a lane so I decided to report it... only to come to find I didn’t know how to. I obviously couldn’t take the time to figure it out since I was driving so when I got home I figured it out. Apparently you can only report an accident if you are in the area..... AND driving. Why would I try to report something while driving? Sorry Waze, I gave you a chance but I like to drive safe. Only way I could see this being a good app is if you’re driving with someone else who can do it for you or if you let us report things when we’re not in the area and not driving .... and let us know when you switch a route for god’s sake

Overall, I’m really enjoying this app. I love the fact that anyone can report incidents on the road. I love the score points system. Several things could go better. One, I recently requested an edit for a route to a restaurant because the app was trying to get me to go the opposite way of the place. When I sent in the request, I felt the response was rude and a bit abrasive. From “subs5(5)”, I left like I was being talked to like a 5-year-old, and you need to work your communication skills. For example: they didn’t really seem to read my edit request, they pretty much said “if you have a problem, you need to go to ROUTES, you picked the shortest way”. Well duh I picked the shortest way, but it still kept trying to take me the opposite way like toward another town. Second of all, the all-caps is not necessary. You plead for users to help edit if we feel it needs it yet get talked down to by certain responders. I also tried to respond to this person’s rude comment, but there was no way to respond back. Ridiculous Also, it would be nice if It said the street names and how many miles it will take to get to places besides looking at the app while trying to drive to figure it out. Another issue that’s been going on is it sometimes just shuts down during a route for no reason. If I’m driving long-distances, I don’t want to feel like I have to check it few minutes to make sure it’s still working. Overall it was improved!

I used to love Waze! It gave me faster, easier routes to get from Point A to Point B. I even love that it gave parking suggestions when you searched for your destination. But the past couple of months, it has not been accurate. Multiple times it has given me parking suggestions as “the closest parking” only to arrive and find out that my destination had parking! It has taken me out of the way of my route for no reason, gotten me lost in the middle of sketchy areas, had me turn and go around a block only to have me go back and keep going straight when I could have done that in the first place, and generally just not been helpful. It also has taken to tell me every time when I open the app that “OOPS! Can’t use Waze while driving!” and given me the option to tell it I am the passenger...while I am sitting in my apartment. Basically, it has gone downhill and I no longer trust the app to get me where I need to go. I hope you get it figured out for other members, but for now I am a lost Wazer ✌

This app has potential to be amazing!! Thanks for listening and making the change for location to be when in use! I have seen a few mistakes in destinations, such as being on the wrong side or one or two streets up but not sure how to fix those. Is there a tutorial? Also have moments when the voice commands are late or don’t work until you are going the wrong way. I can deal with all that! What is most frustrating is the fact when I prepare to drive and put in a destination 12 hours away, my daughter’s college, it thinks then says router failed and so I have to put in a city halfway there and then my original destination. Tried troubleshooting once but was asked for coordinates that I didn’t have. I would also like the option of choosing a route. The alternate routes feature doesn’t always work unless I drive that direction first. I should be able to from my city unless it’s way off, pick whether I want to travel I-29 or I-70 to some place... But fret not with all my concerns! I regularly recommend this app!! I just give them the waze (see what I did there) that I know to get around the hiccups of it! Thanks!!

I have had waze actually since you used to have to pay for it and I had the free lite version. It’s come a long way and kept getting better and better until about 2 months ago. It randomly started losing track of where I was while driving. Then for the last month, I feel like I have to coax waze into “searching” for the route when I enter an address or destination. It takes 2-7 tries of entering the address in because it comes back with a message that there is no search results. Finally it now in the past two weeks won’t let me search at all and eventually fails, the screen turns black and he app closes. There are no updates that I’m missing. I guess frustrated that such a good app has turned unreliable. However when it worked it was great and 5 stars. If I had down loaded it yesterday and it was functioning like this I would have said 1/2 Star. Guess there’s no harm in downloading and seeing if it works for you

Funny enough, A cop friend of mine told me about WAZE! And normally, I LOVE your App, & have Used it DAILY for a couple of years or more, MAINLY to find the SHORTEST ROUTE TO WORK, & Later HOME, & of course to check Road Conditions. I’ve told many of my friends, & patients too, what a great, informative App, Waze is!! There were a few bugs w/the previous update; where the screen flips back to friends, or to types of hazards etc., as you’re driving down the road Trying to follow your GPS Map. But the Most RECENT UPDATE IS GARBAGE!!! Maybe it has TOO MUCH on it? When I open Waze, & try to pick my destination, it flashes a mssg that says “UH OH! YOU ATE NOT CONNECTED. CAN’T CALCULATE ROUTE! W/a green button to click that says OK..., then it crashes (goes black), or it immediately crashes as soon as you try to open the App, & then it just closes the App. UPDATE: We, (hubby & I), along w/many others), have NOT BEEN ABLE to USE WAZE for ONE WEEK Now, b/c it keeps crashing!!!! I’ve had to resort back to Google Maps. PLEASE FIX! No-one has contacted me. Many of the suggestions are great, but I espec like the ones about enlarging the speedometer, & one touch reports! (For safer roads)! Once you’re used to Waze, (when it’s working), it’s hard to do w/out. I have REBOOTED my iPhone several times. I’ve now become dependent on your App, w/all of the traveling we do! PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks for all you do! . Respectfully, FlaGirl13
