Pro - Sharing system is really useful. Rerouting is fast and accurate. Reports by users 90% is accurate. Great design. Cons - In tunnel no navg like Google map. It just stuck there or jump to the end of the tunnel or some funny location. It doesn't show u the nest steps on the instructions panel (next turn is left or right). When keying in the search bar, the keypad will just disappeared.
Alerts of traffic jams and other issues on the road is good. The app seems to have an issue recognizing the addresses from the events in Google calendar. It keeps asking me to set the address for the planned drives. Google map has no problem finding the same address from the same calendar event. This is frustrating. Another issue is battery consumption. It seems to be very hard on the battery. I'll use it for a short while when there are many turns to do then I'll turn it off. I'll start it up again periodically to see if there are any issues forecast ahead.
Normally a 5 star product. However, since I started using a Moto Z, I have had to regularly reboot to acquire GPS - in this app only. I do not have the issue with Google Maps, Sygic or other GPS tools. I can be using Google maps with no problem, switch to Waze, and get an error about not acquiring a GPS signal. Will go back to 5 stars when fixed. Note that this continues to be an issue several months later.
It doesn't Let me use feet. Just kilometers and miles. It doesn't give exact directions. It just says stay left, turn right etc. No names of streets or exit numbers. It confuses elevated highway with the street below. I'm on a highway and it tells me to turn left. If I cannot get it to give exact directions, not worth keeping. Suggestions? I've played with the settings for hours already.
I kept getting promoted to install this via the Spotify app now that they integrate. I thought why not, and installed. That's where the problems began... I have a brand new, fully updated S7 and I can reproduce the crashing that is happening. So here goes, I open Waze and it works great until i try and use the Spotify button within Waze to control my music. The first time I did this, my phone went completely dead. Nothing but Black screen. Calls to the phone went straight to VM. The S7 does not have a battery, but after a couple days of the phone being dead, I found a button combo that actually powered the phone back up. Did not use Waze again for a couple days, but then on my way to work this morning, fired it up again and sure enough,as soon as I tried the Spotify integration, by phone went wonky. Closed Waze but half of my screen still showed Waze. Hit the power button to turn off the screen and Bam, system turned off same as before. Tested a couple times and every time it's the same thing..
Great app, used a few other navigation apps but this one is the best.. I have been using it for about 3 weeks and it is perfect to use easy to access and navigate around it able to set up a route to home and work so that you have quick access to them. I would recommend this to anyone else who is needs a good and efficient navigation app
