Review from Lex Lugod
It's a very useful app for navigating traffic. However, it's sooo damn frustrating to use when you set a different start point. I start searching in my selected start point but the route that Waze provides sets the start point still on my current location. So what's the point (no pun intended) in setting a different start point? Ugh.
Ever since the update in late 2017 the Waze app has never been the same. Won't work at all! Even after uninstalling, reinstalling several times, and losing all my saved drives. Make it work again, and I will update my review. Until then, it's Google Maps for me. At least it works properly. Waze will be uninstalled after I post this. I will check back here to see if any rep actually gives some constructive input. Not holding my breath though.
Would be great if the Android version worked in upside-down portrait orientation like the iOS version does. Seems like a simple change. I usually put my phone in the car cup holder and it's difficult to charge my phone and use the app at the same time because the charger jack is at the bottom and I can't flip the phone upside down if I use Waze.
I loved using Waze and I was racking up a lot of points. When signing into a new phone my account says I put in the wrong information. I reset the pw in the app and made sure I typed it correctly and it seemed to have not made it to the server (old pw didn't work either). Customer service was no help to recover the account.
Overall lack of settings but most importantly, it doesn't auto dim with low light, this is a big problem. There's no satellite view only a vibrant blue line on an excessively bright white background. Seems finicky so far but could have potential..
I'm so glad one of my customer's recommended this app to me. It's really easy to use and helpful when people report things to look out for. I world give this app 5 stars if it had the option to show road conditions bc living in the north central and driving in the winter it's really helpful to see what route may be the least hazardous.
Since an update towards the end of last year, the navigation position has been lagging behind your current actual position. I can be past a road and it still thinks it hasn't got there yet. Google Maps has no such issue. Until that's fixed it makes it very hard to navigate new places. Google Pixel 2 XL
