I'm from India. For some reasons, this app doesn't has updated traffic info for my city. May be it's because of too few users and no crowd sourcing of traffic info. I'll wait some time before I can start using this again. UI and functionality are different from Google maps but excellent indeed. Would love to use this when it's matured enough to have my city info.
Primary use is Android Auto and it simply does not work. Reported this over 6 weeks ago, no update, no fix. Map will initially load but then does not track and often loads completely wrong location. Google Maps on Android Auto works fine so it's not my phone gps. Speed limit is not displayed and functionality is limited. Extremely disappointed.
I have to have it to show the upcoming lane I need out of the 3 or whatever. Google has that and its a life saver. And definitely need street names. Weird to not have street names. I have to have both of those. Also, I wanted to plan a route in reverse and haven't figured out where it lets you switch the to and from. ? It's got to be there somewhere. If not, that too is a deal breaker. It looks super cute though. I'll keep checking back for those things to be added
This app DOES NOT work with my Motorola Z Force Droid!! I used to love using it on my Samsung Galaxy, but now that I've upgraded to a newer phone Waze doesn't seem interested in helping it to be functional on my Droid. If I want to use it at all, I have to completely restart my phone and reset my GPS updating. That works about half of the time. Google Maps works perfectly Everytime, all the time. I'm very disappointed in Waze. This used to be a good app.
Uses heavy resources . Bought a note8 . Bigger battery and faster everything. My clients like the voices. It wouldnt let me load previous acct so had to start over. I kept getting error. Needs refinement and improvement like every map app but way better than bing or google, the only competitors i believe
Highly recommend. Hard to live without this. Especially the alternate routes feature where I can select the easier to drive routes if only takes a minute or two longer. I have recommended this to many people. This is my new go to navigation app, I wish i could load it into my car nav system, which has a large screen, but it's not traffic aware. At work where i wanted to have dinner with partners who flew in, staying at different placrs, who all wanted to use their own rental cars we all used the Waze app, with great results. Should become the new standard for car NAV systems.
