Great app to replace my GPS, but I don't like that I select a route, then it changes it to a quicker route with a TOLL... Now I have to turn on the option "avoid toll routes" each time before I go somewhere and turn it off when I am willing to pay the high FL tolls. Not always fun when you are not sure where you are going and while you are driving... just a little frustrated with an app that changes my mind mid route
Much better than Google maps. Always gives me better and shorter routes than g-maps. However, sometimes there are no real time traffic updates from users. Like at 6.45am on a specific route I once took to work ( I'm in Johannesburg). The map showed no traffic but there was traffic. Get better ways to incentivise users to make real time updates . Also sometimes the app just doesn't work. It says "couldn't calculate route" . That's when I resort to Google maps. Fix your network issues please
Waze is absolutely the best and easiest gps app available! It even beats Google Map, Apple Maps, Bing all of them! I have been using Waze for 5 years and I've never been disappointed! I LOVE YOU WAZE!!! The only thing I would like to see changed is being able to use offline somehow, the locations could be entered and saved while online if you know you won't have access to WiFi on the road and then the routes could be downloaded and saved to phone and used on your trip. I don't know anything about programming but it seems like something that wouldn't be to hard to achieve, in theory anyways.
I've had issues using the Waze app recently, mainly with my rideshare driver apps. For the entire month of May I had to continually close and reopen the app between each pickup and dropoff, but I made it work. I would work on the accuracy of locations, and location information like correct gas prices. Hopefully the latest update corrected these issues. Overall this is a decent app... even fun to use!
Poor at finding location. Keeps giving my wife's phone notification of my drives coming up even though I turned off my calendar on her Waze settings. Have to close and restart it several times before it zooms in on me (or toggle location on and off) Directions aren't accurate until it finds me. Also keeps asking to rate it so One star now. Overall I Liked the older versions better new one has ads that are too big and it's not as smooth or quick anymore. Doesn't give enough warning for turns. Needs a way to select voice timing. Early, moderate, late, something like that.
Gas prices fixed. I won't be making my own voices recording. WAZE should consider the possibility that an external gps receiver is being used when it starts instead of refusing to run when location is off. After WAZE loads location can be turned off with GPS data being supplied via Mock Location. Works good. But why go through the extra step.
