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.

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.

We really like the Waze app but on the trip we just took we had lots of trouble with it. I was riding shotgun and my husband was driving but I had my phone navigating. Anytime I closed the app to do something else on my phone it would stop navigating. The first couple of times I thought I was hitting weird buttons but we ended up missing an important turn so switched to Google maps. It also stopped any time we stopped at a gas station. Don't care for that at all.
