Review from David Robinson
Waze used to be brilliant but now its taking me on absolutely bizarre residential back roads and routes. Twice now ive been down roads that had not seen traffic in months the roads were covered in green moss and the centre of the road could have been mowed. I wish there was an easy way to submit the routes so you could see what i mean.
December 18, 2017Hi David, thanks for your feedback. If you have an example of specific routing issue, please write to us directly: https://goo.gl/lxJKS9
I used to absolutely adore this app. Unfortunately they have updated it and now it doesn't take the shortest route, the map is a bit sketchy when you zoom out, and you can no longer see the speed other users are driving. It has a few benefits over Google Maps but they are getting fewer each time they update Waze.
Overall pretty satisfied with this app but there are some glaring issues. First being that it insists on routing me through areas during rush hour I know for a fact are always heavily congested. When I turn to take alternative routes it recalculates and shows travel time as the same or shorter...so why route me through all that traffic? There was also road construction outside my neighborhood with about a week or so with part of the road completely closed to through traffic and it wouldn't save it. Also insists on routes that forces me to make left turns onto major roads that have no lights or stop signs (yes even with the option checked in settings)
Pretty graphics but poorly coded piece of sht. Why can I only send ETA and updates to OTHER WAZE USERS? Why not everyone through Whatsapp, SMS or email? Oh, you momentarily lost data connection while driving well let's just shutdown all routing and navigation whatsoever and pop up a stupid "uh oh, server connection lost" message to make everything allright. No navigation shortcuts on Android like Google Maps has. 2/10.
Why would you have an iOS version that has a more advanced UI than on Android? If you are worried about less powerful android devices, shouldn't you have a Waze GO version?
After having some issues with Google drive that was a much better option to use. In case of traffic jam you have other users feedback in real time what can save you of an uncomfortable issue. Thanks for the app.
A) Being limited to 1000 miles defeats me using it for a longer trip. B) I get a message that the app cannot be moved to the SD card. C) Waze has been giving me longer routes or has been VERY slow to change direction since the new update. Also crashes when directions change. D) Now, my maps are coming up blank. Can someone fix this ASAP as it is REALLY ANNOYING.
Fixed a few bugs so it’s easier to save time & avoid traffic with Waze.
