Review from A Google User
Great app I use it all the time and it does a great job. Could use a carpool mode and I have problems submitting hazards by voice. The speedometer also seems to overlap with the other parts of the display.
Gas prices fixed. I won't be making my own voices recording. WAZE should consider the possibility that an external gps receiver is being used when it starts instead of refusing to run when location is off. After WAZE loads location can be turned off with GPS data being supplied via Mock Location. Works good. But why go through the extra step.
Best nav on the market WITH lots of room for improvement with other features. Search is still dismal. By category brings up few results. Tap your parent company please for POI. Again, navigation seems spot on and not obtrusive like Google's offering. Like the fresh look. Love the send ETA so people I choose can monitor my drive. WISH LIST..1. Could use lane assist. 2. Need to get links from Yelp, Google Now, and other websites to share the actual destination name of the business not unknown street address or just the address. 3. Heads up notification needed when in other apps and driving. 4. Point of destination...Use Google data and pics rather than user pics? 5. Organize favorites into categories!! It is just a long running list right now.
Really liked it at first. I do like that it re routes me if there is a better option. It gets worse with each update,though. Freezes for no reason. Thought it was just my phone, but does it on my husbands, too. I also don't like that it doesn't let me look ahead at my route without moving the screen back to my current position.
Good. Would be better if it would sync across multiple devices. Does not provide notifications/alerts when app is running in the background. Does not scale well on lower resolution screens. Takes a long time to find network if tethering. Reports don't always submit by which time you've left the incident behind.
Large font set in Android system settings is ignored in the app, only menu font is big, letters on map are very small. Map is wired: when trying to zoom in a bit it quickly zooms in to the maximum level and I need to zoom back out. When turning round the map it alwayd turns around some central point, not around the point between fingers. Roads and objects become invisible, looks like they do that randomly, when you zoom out, so it's harder to understand the full picture of roads between the cities. And you can't zoom out to see more than 5-7 hours of driving at once.
Having a trip planner would make it perfect. I still can't get Facebook friends to load on this thing. It just stopped working for some reason. A fix for reverting back to a baby wazer is still needed.
