Review from Nicolas Cole
Fun for Commuters I really love this app. Its a lot of fun. Better yet it allows me to have real time updates on more than just traffic. I k.ow where police sit, where road hazards are and whether traffic is crawling or at a standstill. I still wish it would let u customize routes or give more options. Also, if u take a shortcut it reroutes u back to the original route. Not helpful
The BEST GPS I have ever used. It is amazing being able to pick a route other than the primary choice by the GPS. The only thing that would make this the perfect GPS app is if there was the posted speed limit and your current speed. If that happened this would get 5-stars all day every day.
Just a couple of things... Needs the posted speed limit next to your speed. And it would be nice to add friends by their waze nickname... I'm not too keen on allowing waze access to my contacts. I want control! Also, the ETA is wrong if the trip crosses a time zone. Finally, the app slowly developed increasing brain damage when it ran for 8 hours... kept telling me to make u-turn after u-turn on a highway until I rebooted phone and restarted app.
Amazingly Accurate and detailed helpful info. This not only helps me avoid upcoming traffic congestion, it even alerts me to things that have caused expensive damage in the past, like large Pot Holes, so I can switch lanes and save my tires, etc. Love it!
Slow interface Does some nice things and great that it can alert about important things even when navigation is silent. But the app is slow. Button clicks take a second or two to register. Weird they never improve basic things like that for years on end.
Still very good, and lots of fun! Hands down one of the best GPS applications available. Needs to go back to DISTANCE as a measurement of... well, distance (in 5 miles, I'll need to exit, not 5 minutes). PAUSE/RESUME for Stops is also needed (I'm adding a STOP, not a drive-by). And, a way to OPT-OUT of the pop-ups that tend to crash the application during navigation.
It deleted my old account and now I have my nickname back so 3 stars for loosing my account in the first place.
