I love Waze, but it quits running while in the background. It used to not do that, and it's so aggravating. I usually only use it when we travel, which means my husband is driving and I'm the passenger. So I'll read on my kindle app but can't do that with Waze, because if you switch apps, Waze closes down. It's ridiculous. Going back to Google maps until Waze fixes this. Also, I've checked my settings to ensure it runs in the background. Still doesn't work.

In regards to the latest update; I am extremely disappointed. Once a week I travel 5 hours a day, and thoroughly enjoyed the feature that gave an estimatd time to leave dependingon traffic. This feature is no longer available and for myself the app has become partially useless. The new layout is fresh but I preferred the old version. It also crashes, gives unreliable routes. Sadly I must switch to Google maps. Please bring back the old features and I'll come back.

Love everything about this app with one huge exception, I can't plan trips from anywhere but my current location. The instructions to change my starting point doesn't work either. Upon reading reviews, I'm finding many others have the same complaints. Why doesn't this app offer a starting point like MapQuest, instead of starting at your current location? It seems unreasonable. I guess I need to go back to MapQuest.
