I really think this is the best navigation app, however I am disappointed in the choices of voice. They give you two women or two men and they all sound the same. The British accent voices sound the same too. Not very realistic, very robotic and not funny at all. And the only celebrity voice available is Mr. T. Really? Who even cares about that any more? Boy band is just one guy singing, not a harmonizing group so it's lame. But it's still better at navigation and notification than anything else by far.
I enjoy the app but I would love a function to avoid certain roads, as some roads are dangerous to travel at night. Additionally I would also like to see the turn off options and differences in travel time at major route junctions. Sometimes a better route is only 2 min longer. On this note, when I take a familiar route on purpose, the app first calculates an alternative to get to the original route,(often taking longer) in stead of an alternative to get to the final destination.
Waze could not access gps when google maps had no problem. Reinstalled but sms verification did not come in, had to use voice verification. After verification showed my account and asked for confirmation then told me account could not be verified - lost in space. It has deteriorated to the point that I am now using google msps more than waze. Might as well just forget waze. Just wonder if they bother with these reviews.
The most useful APP I have ever downloaded, honestly. Only wish is that users can view info on businesses like hours, ratings... things like that. But this is a GPS APP so it's not a huge takeaway. Love it!
I simply love to use this app. It makes planning a trip or finding my way so easy to use and the added bonus of having it talk to me before the turns is so nice. Would like to see more voices added to the selections! Thank you for always providing the quickest route to the location.
Lately the navigation is bad as hell. Takes you on routes that are busy and not where there are less cars. It used to take me on via backstreets in order to cut time , now it just tells me to wait in the traffic jams. Simply terrible. Also do not use this in sourthern Italy. Its totally broken as a navigation , simple maps / gps , let alone talk about traffic.
