Awesome App ! I was leary of the Waze app when I first heard it because I heard the police used it. The app is awesome as it automatically re routes you (when you have a destination and are in route) if there is a back up or whatever. The ONLY thing I don't like is it shows where other Wazers are so there could be "Creepers" trying to see who is in the car shown on the map. Other then that it's fantastic and is highly recommended
Newer improvements = Getting better Recommend making freeways that become less lanes permanent Hazzard on map in those locations. Street names should follow orientation of actual roads like normal maps =less confusing. When tagging police seen driving it could calculate their speed continuing path of movement for actual up to minute location expected. Add Hazard other side option.
Feature request Good app. But please make possible that audio alerts are played regardless of which side of the road the actual alert is placed. Some users don't place alerts on the correct side of the road. Also cops can radar you even if they are on the other side of the road, however in this case the cops are placed on the display but no audio alert is played. Please correct this or add checkbox in settings so that this functionality can be set. Thanks.
Great GPS The gps is extremely accurate with virtually no lag. However, if you are navigating, this comes at the cost of your battery and cpu. It will normally select the fastest route, but you can compare to alt routes in case you want to override. It will also reroute if you hit traffic and it is wise to listen! I have noticed this new version doesn't show as many alt routes off the freeway when I am stuck in medium traffic and want to circumvent a slow down. Please bring this back!
Best GSP for Traffic Best app to drive on short or long, cross-country trips. This app as live traffic monitoring by actual feedback from people on the road in real time. It has saved me hours by telling me to get in the right lane and exit because the interstate had closed a few miles ahead when someone hit a bridge overpass. Rerouted me around the closure and put me back on the interstate after the closure. No time delay! Best app ever!! I use it every day.
I've been using Waze more or less since it came out and have been an Area Manager for my area for the past few years also. Waze is an excellent app and I always switch it on even if I'm only taking a 5 minute trip to make sure I'm always adding road data to help make the app better still. I've used Waze to navigate us on holiday where we've driven 1,500-2,000 miles in 7-10 days and never had any problem with navigation. Highly advise all road users to have Waze installed :-)
