Best app for navigation ever created. Has instant updates on the road whether it be traffic, hazards on the road, or estimated arrival times. Also a great feature is the police notifications. Since the info is user generated, the updates received are people currently driving on the same road as you, so it is the most trustworthy info you can receive while on the road. I love the fact that users can help others out by letting them know of anything other drivers can run into if they are driving the same route. Best navigation app EVER!
Personal adjustment possibility of warning distance is missing as feature. Screen is not switching off according phone default setup, but continuesly on and eating up battery. Should switch on only when any activity happens or warning occurs which requires attention. Google location service provide accurate information without GPS, but recently this SW seems does not update location within Waze by Google location service (even at planning alternative routes has some bug: slow, when show on map has huge offset and manually has to scroll to proper location).
Lots better than previous version. It's quite a bit quicker for me to click through to paste an address and hit the navigation buttons to get started down my route. The only annoyance that has been consistent in each version is that when I unlock my Android phone to see where I am supposed to be at, the app is not displayed on the screen. I must go into the app and it asks me if I am still traveling on the route. I tell it yes and it nearly takes me to the beginning of setting up a new route. It asks me if everything looks correct and then I have to hit the navigation button again. The IOS app is much better. The IOS app does not forget that you are already on a route and displays what you need to see immediately.
Great app! I'd like it if you could have an additional sound option (same as sound on) but for it to only speak for major turnings and notifications for hazards etc rather than every turning such as a junction on the motorway. Also could it provide weather information during travel/destination? Apart from that brilliant!
4.29 - 4.31: Font size in route menu is smaller and harder to read, while more screen is empty. White text on Green and Cyan background is terrible. New: Grey text on Grey. White directions on White background, while navigating. They just don't care at all for screen visibility when driving. Speed alert setting from speedometer is gone from 4.26. But hey, you can always honk every wazer you get nearby for no reason, right? Bip Biip!!
I'm having issues with it connecting to my GPS (I have a oneplus 3T). Not sure if it's the phone or the app itself. But I have to reboot my phone to get it to work, which doesn't help when you're in a pinch. Love how it warns about cops and hazards, and the traffic reports are on point. It is a little tedious at times, especially if you're driving. It's a tough to participate and report when you're driving as well, although I wish I could.
Fixed bugs and made a few tweaks so it’s easier to save time & avoid traffic with Waze.
