    PROS: Nice map layout. Easy to read. Great notifications/alerts. Crowd source warnings are awesome. Super easy to log a warning or traffic event. CONS: Quite a few addresses give the wrong location. Some routes/reroutes make no sense, sending you to make a uturn miles ahead when there are opportunities to reroute yards away. No option to select which roads to avoid, i.e. Parkway. For example, if you tow a trailer (like a rented uhaul trailer for moving) you can't drive on parkways.

    This is a really good app, I just wish I could see other Wazers on the map again. I haven't been able to see them for years, despite checking all my settings and even changing phones. I see the number of Wazers in the area when I open the app, but they never show up on my map.

    Love it but think the hazzard reporting could still use a few tweaks. Like reporting live animals on the road, would be nice if it warned the traffic in opposite direction. And maybe an option to report new traffic patterns, not just road construction. Either way love it and glad Google didn't ruin it when they bought it:))

    The app always picks the longest route, there's a bug which doesn't allow to take a picture to report traffic/accident, re-routing is very slow. I wouldn't recommend this app.

    It's pretty awesome. Other users can input traffic, objects on road, and other driving warnings. It generally gives the fastest travel time directions but it also can have some errors with accessible roads existing or not existing.

    Used daily and is excellent for avoiding traffic, speed cameras and police. Only issue I have is that on my Hyundai Kona, Waze doesn't show full screen and only uses about 2/3 and is biased to the left.

    Since March updates, Waze always took me to challenge junctions/town roads within residential area, deployed with tremendous traffic lightss and pedestrians, before lead me to main roads. Now i have gaining extraordinary patience on the road, my religion failed to train me so but Waze did it easily.

    When report ahead given. You need to install a auto reroute button so as to avoid the report ahead. If I choose not to drive via report ahead. Install a reroute option.

    A magnificent Nav app I use as a backup and often Waze comes out on top to get me to my destination.Ivrecently bought a name brand GPS device and put it up against the Waze. There is practically little to no difference to get to my destination. One bright spot? With help from other Waze users out there, I'm always made aware of where the cops are hiding before I even see them. That's tops to me.

    I liked this cute app while traveling. a lot of people in the area use it so information is pretty much real time up to date and you can see all the other people on the maps that are using it and how long they have had it. weird freaky but convenance and quality of the application and what is provided for your travel needs makes it worth the space in your memory. also see that cop on cherry and 3rd hiding out 3 miles before I arrive in the area haha

    Thank you to the creator(s) of this app. You have no idea how enjoyable you just made my vacation. My fiance has no patience and he is high strung. Driving during vacations have sucked. BAD. I was able to relax and joke with him because I put in a route and it gave precise directions, tolls and accidents along the way. He didn't complain once. Google maps should take lessons from yall!!!

    This is the best GPS app I've ever used. It takes me the quickest possible way around heavy traffic, shows the speed limit and warns of hazards on and off the road. The only thing I don't like is the distracting little popups to say I've munched my way to extra points. Every time they pop up I quickly try to read it thinking it might be something important and I find that to be a dangerous distraction. Apart from that it's fantastic

    This used to be my #1 app. But there has been a major disconnect between the developer & the users. I was stuck out on a road deep in Arizona far away from any City. Even though I had used the same maps for the past month, even though waze still had over 100 megabytes of maps from when I used it earlier.. because there was no internet connection out in the middle of nowhere , waze would not tell me how to get back. I waited 3 days until a driver stopped when I flagged him down.

    The overall is really useful. There a couple of things that can be improved: 1) Sometimes the arrow on the map falls behind, so you might have made the turn already, but the arrow is still lagging. For an inexperienced user this might cause confusion. 2) Sometimes you are being directed on a "shortcut" on very narrow streets, to avoid traffic on the main roads. But this overall takes more time ans effort, than just using the main streets.

    I prefer this app to other GPS apps.. WHEN IT WORKS! It suddenly started having issues today. I have had to uninstall and reinstall 4 times today! It will work the first time I use it, but when I try to use it again, it freezes and closes and won't reopen. I don't know what happened since Saturday, but it's been quite frustrating today. As an Instacart shopper who uses this app up to 12 times a day, it is annoying to have to uninstall & reinstall every time I want to use it!

    So Waze has stopped working in the last week with Android Auto using my OnePlus 8 Pro (android 11) and my 2019 Volvo V60. It shows me the route but just freezes the pin that indicates my position and doesn't track my movement. No amount of cajoling can get it to work. Just to be clear, it isn't a signal issue as other map apps work fine.

    I would rate this app five stars if I didn't get the annoying pop-ups that take up half my screen for cafes or McDonald's it's all big chains none of it's local stuff. It's whoever pays the biggest buck and I just missed the days that Waze wasn't owned by a huge conglomerate. I don't hate Google as a company but like many it's getting way too big for its britches. Maybe it's always been that way it's just been better at hiding it I don't know.

    Often does not get me to my destination. In the middle of driving to my destination it gets confused and tells me to make turns that don't exist. If I was in a completely unfamiliar area I would be lost. Often will say you have arrived and I have no idea where my destination point is. The app just stops providing any further information. I would never use this app in any area I was completely unfamiliar with, which defeats its purpose. I'm not driving in rural areas either.

    Good app when it works. Waze seems to always have trouble getting a gps lock whilst used through android auto. Pretty much renders the app useless. Google maps works fine. if the phone is not connected to android auto waze will pickup gps no worries. I wish the waze team could release a stable app Edit: response from waze is über generic and useless. Quick google search shows waze has struggled with android auto for a long time.

    it's decent GPS system. Good for letting you know where the police are, any hazards and accidents. But doesn't let you know what side your destination is on or what lanes to use when turning. The turn indicator is slow and if your not looking at the GPS it announces the turn at the last minute so again if your not looking you'll miss your turn. Doesn't always give the shortest route even though it's set that way. Overall it's excellent for reporting harards etc but not so good otherwise.

    UPDATE: The speedometer issue has been resolved. Changed my review back to 5 stars Keeps disconnecting from Android Auto. When it is connected, it no longer shows the speed limit or speedometer reading. The app can't seem to figure out which direction I am going. It works fine on the phone, and it used to work well with Android Auto, but not after the last update

I have a 2020 Acura RDX and thus feature was one reason I selected the vehicle. I've taken it to the dealership twice and they can't help. Other than that I would give ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐. Update 3/10/21- Took vehicle back to dealership to find out why I still can't get waze app on my android auto. It's a selected as an app in my Acura Auto app buy waze still does not show up.

    If you have all the time in the world, use this app. The app takes you in the opposite direction, makes a big loop back to where you want to go. Also very inaccurate, I have tried to calibrate it, but that doesn't work. It will not tell you that you have arrived, or that the destination is coming up. I hate Google maps, but this app is terrible.

    I consider this app as one of the best navigation apps available. And I would rather pay for it to support the devs and get some kind of Pro user status just for fun. But today Waze drove me crazy. I wish I could attach photos here. Because I want to share one of the most hardcore off-road experiences in my life with the dev team. I had checked to avoid dirt roads but for some reason I got a real safari. Please add more options to road issues like "Road is damaged" and "Road is heavily damaged"

    I don't know what happened to this app, it was great but lately it tells me it'll take me X time to arrive and it's never even close, it can say 20 minutes and I'll arrive after 1 hour and 20 Minutes, it happens again and again on the same and on different rodes. And another thing, in traffic it just makes you drive in circles, so you'll feel that maybe you didn't stand in traffic! (It kept me stuck in traffic for 4 hours one time until I stopped listening to it)

    Best app hands down when it comes to navigation!!! With interaction and live reporting from other app users, it really is the most accurate and helpful app when it comes to getting on the road and making sure you are equipped with the tool needed in order to make it to your destination the fastest and safest route possible. Coming from someone who drives 1000 miles a week or more, I don't know what I'd do without it. So helpful in helping to avoid a speed trap or accident in real time. Love it!

    Good satnav app with two MAJOR faults - You cannot mark your destination on map through Android Auto. Tapping map sets point but no option to start navigation to this point. - Waze makes sound report of speedtrap (traffic camera) ONLY if you are exceeding speed limit in notification point. If your speed is below legal at notification point then speed camera is reported only on screen but no sound notification.

Tho it kinda lags or outright stuck when u really need it to work .. And the loading /re-routing / searching could be faster.. Searching network (while having full network bars).. Please wait..

    In android auto, the arrow is not always facing straight on the screen so as I pass side roads, it often thinks I'm driving down them so the route jumps around and then corrects itself. It is also about 100 yards off, so as I'm approaching a turn, it looks like I have a block to go but I end up passing the turn. I can't seem to find a way to calibrate and it's driving me crazy.

    Last update ruined this app! Notifications are late, you're on top of a hazard/police car before you're notified; can no longer look ahead on route to see upcoming reports; 👍/👎 with running count was easier to use and more useful than current "still there/not still there" option, especially when driving: your music feature is useless. Very disappointed in how this app works now!

    Waze has many cool features but the best one of all is that it will notify the driver that there is a vehicle parked on the road shoulder up ahead. With this forewarning I am able to slow down and grab the wheel extra tight, and inform any passengers to assume the brace position. It really is a life saver. It's good that this can't be disabled so there's no chance this critical safety information is accidently be missed. Just one thing - could the app voice the distance from as we close in?

    My experience with Waze is in relation to the Mazda android auto interface. It's pretty good at what it does and the hazard features etc are pretty handy. I'd like to see it remember routes after the car has been turned off and on again (e.g.stopped at ships or to get petrol) I'm not sue if it's Waze or Mazda's issue, but lack of touch screen support (when stationary) is a bit annoying. [Edit] Waze seems to remember routes after car turned off occasionally, now. Biggest headache now is voice navigation issue: I give a command, the command appears as said on the nav screen, the address Waze offers is the street only, not the number, which is an issue on those long roads. (May be Mazda, may be Google, may be Waze)

    App is not working anymore, suddenly. It opens, but the map is not loading, it's just a white screen. Plus the search function is not working either, it says "searching network", even if there is no actual problem with the network. I tried to uninstall and reinstall it, change the settings etc, but nothing works.

    Waze is a very good GPS app way better than Google Drive I don't know what happened to GPS on Google but it definitely downhill! Waze will tell you if there's a car stopped on the side of the road. Everyone driving with Waze is like a community and we alert each other if there is a car stopped on the side of the road on the highway or if the cops have somebody stopped the left side of the road or a big ramp is closed down because that's good to know when you're driving on the highway because eve

    This app is a hit and miss. When it's working (75% of the time). It's great and does what it says. when it doesn't work it's trash. Sometimes my arrow on the map doesn't move or my speedo dissapears. But when it works it's is a fantastic app. Beats google maps anyday. I also think that you need to add school zones in. It's a must. Waze has saved me from so many speed cameras. Please add school zones for Australia. Most modern car navigation systems show school zones. My parents Volvo shows it.

    They should allow toggle off the annoying "car parked on the side of the road' alerts which come about 15 per mile on the interstate and are absolutely useless. Many of these cars are abandoned that are pulled way off the shoulder anyhow. Plus, I'm not pulling off the road 99.99999% of the time. I can see cars that are on the side of the road. Also it suggests a restaurant to me that's 12 mi away instead of the one that is 1.2 mi away. These are lazy programmers.

    UPDATE.....the issues have been resolved for the time being. Have rated 4 stars due to not knowing what the next update will bring. Having the same issue as Elite Cheez. I too have a 2019 Ford F150. Had somewhat of a work around but that has failed. I have reverted back to version 4.68.2.0 as a result. Waze support advised they are working on the problem but as of yet no further updates since the Feb 15 release.

    This app is no better than Google Maps. And I find it lacking in a couple of ways. 1st it doesnt tell you which side of the street your destination is on (like GMaps does). Second, Im finding it likes to take you through backroads and neighbors that, while they may be the shortest route, aren't the best or fastest route like ever. Also i dont need to be notified of every railroad crossing, cop, or accident. And why wait till I get RIGHT UP ON the street im supposed to turn on?

    Great app but developers ignoring some critical issues... Love the app and now won't drive on the highway without it, but two really important issues are being ignored in the suggestion box: 1. Speed limit is completely illegible as it's too small (ignored in suggestion box for nearly 5 years!) 2. Reporting things while driving not easy enough to see what you're doing (words/pics too small) Both issues are safety critical as they require you to take your eyes off the road for too much time.

    Downloaded app to run audio books and maps simultaneously. Failed in deep country. Typical geo-app, requires users to build a data base. Strives to offer same functions as Google maps. Where are your base maps/Sat images from Esri, Google? We fix a road in app, you get personal addresses /algorithms. What do you do with our data? Sell it?

    I used to like it, but its bad UX is really annoying. For example I have never been able to make "Set as start point" work! Sometimes if it loses connection, I have to restart it in order for it to work. Sometimes when I select a location by long tapping and then force the map to point to north, the selected location is lost!

    I'd gladly give this 5 stars if it were reliable in Android Auto. It tends to crash when the phone lose its mobile network data connection, even just while traveling through a momentary dead spot. By "crash", I mean that the app blinks and then all of the routing information (on the left side of the Waze screen) just disappears. To recover, I have to pick up the phone, go into settings/apps, locate Waze and then "force stop" it. Not exactly what I want to be doing while driving. Ironically, this is Waze+AndroidAuto+Pixel3+GoogleFi (all Google products). Sadly, Waze would be the killer Android Auto app if it were reliable.

    Very good app!!! I am still using it!!! Shows all problems, obstacles, weather conditions, stuck policemen, alternative routes, flexible settings, thoroughly shows the route. A very wide range of languages! That's cool! Negative strokes: 1. It is too high on Internet traffic (even saved routes), 2. No satellite images. Hopefully, Waze will fix these two issues soon!

    Updating to 3 stars as, knock on wood, all prior problems seem to have gone away. Quick suggestion: The "short" reply length still seems a bit long winded... it'd be great if there was an option to cut back on the reasons why route was selected. I don't need to know that the " [insert full long Hwy name that takes 10 to 20 seconds to say (exaggerated)] is 3 minutes faster"... just need a "this route is 3 minutes faster" so that I'm not yelling shut up at the voice assistant. Will re-rate later.

    There are no longer easily accessible settings in this application and it is really hard to get the app to point in the direction the vehicle is traveling. Additionally, am I logged into the application or not, I can't find those setting anywhere. In attempt to make this application direct they have increased the difficulty to use it and customize to fit the user. I am also on my second waze account because they lost my login info and stopped allowing me to sign in. What happened to waze?

    Last version updated is not really precise. I often got your direction into a small alley that is almost impossible to go through. Eventhough I chose a common or popular building, it directed me to their backways (dense residental areas). Why don't create a custom road option that enable feature to avoid small alley for cars? Just like you did in your "Avoid Ferries" or "Avoid freeways" and "Dirt Roads" kinda thing. Thanks!

    You need to remove that annoying list that appears each time we open waze. It covers half the map and displays info without the users request. If I want to display my history i will look for it.

    Community reporting is great. Waze often alerts me to speedtraps before my radar detector does, as well as hazards on the road. I often keep waze running while I drive, even if I don't need directions, just to have the alerts. Love it, highly recommend for anyone who does a lot of driving, really helps increase your awareness and safety while on the road. Only downside to Waze, ironically, is the actual navigation. Google maps is still slightly more efficient and precise with it's routing.

    UPDATE: The app was fixed in one of the last few updates... Working like it used to. This app used to be rock solid then a Google update or waze update ruined it a few months ago. I've deleted waze and AA and reinstalled and it still won't show speed limit, like it used to, and the map spins and jumps around. I've tried taking a trip via navigation, still no speed limit. I should give it 1 star. And to top it off, I'm running them on a Pixel 4. Google owns the apps and made the phone...

    The best Satellite navigation app around. Not perfect, but with a few minor modifications it would remove the need to consider using any other navigation system period. It could use the ability to add current location to favorites. Recently I've been experiencing less then ideal routes. For example, I ignored a left turn which is located 35 metres from the departure location and the drive time difference is over 20 minutes regardless of traffic.

    Have been using the app for 8 years, everything has been great until it crashed mid drive 3/22/21. When attempting to open the app again, it kept closing itself and opening itself within milliseconds. It now won't recognize my email, username, etc. when attempting to log in and basically is telling me to create a new account. This means I lost all save addresses on my account, but the app doesn't open still other than to just immediately close itself.

    It's Way Better than Google Maps as Google doesn't actively announce police, cars on the shoulder of the road, railway crossings and debris on the road. I actually avoided having an accident because I was warned about debris on the highway and so I was even more alert to my surroundings. There was a large piece of retread tire on the road and other's were swerving to keep from hitting it. As I watched ahead I was aware of how other's were driving and I avoided that area.

    Been using Waze for approx 6 years now. After updates within the last several months, I noticed that having the phone connected to Android Auto on my Challenger or Audi, it would freeze, not autozoom and lag with the current location. Changed resolution to 720P on Android Auto developer settings, turned off power modes (although Android 11 eliminated that), my fix was to find the older version and install.. updates have not fixed this issue.. also happens on IOS version.

    1. The software is very useful and its traffic estimation and geographical location are accurate. 2. Many drivers are supported due to the possibility of reporting and sending messages online. 3. Its battery consumption is high and usage on long paths may not be possible. 4. It seems that sometimes to measure the traffic of other streets, deliberately drives cars through that street to the destination. 5. This software is produced in Israel, so users in some countries should use proxy & VPN.

    Current build has reintroduced the bug when you occasionally have to double confirm your route after it disappears on initial input, but on the positive side, we received the Maps lane display in this update which is a big plus. Stability otherwise continues to be pretty good & I'm quietly optimistic, feels like it's taken years (& years...) to get to this point but now that the app is finally in a good state, it's getting the quality of life updates it needs.

    Good features, works well on mobile. However, have been having issues getting it to show on Android Auto - it just doesn't show up at all no matter what settings are changed. Update: Thanks Waze team for reaching out. I found a fix in Reddit which worked. Enable developer mode in android auto, in developer settings - application mode: developer and tick unknown sources. Now after I exit AA developer mode Waze shows. Waze team should add this workaround to your own site/FAQ in the meantime.

Waze tried telling me to drive on the railroad tracks at o e point and to even jump off a bridge into the ocean in Florida to get back on track, even tho I was going exactly the route it suggested prior to glitching like crazy.

I like some of the functionality and, hopefully, this will make it's way too Google Maps because a nav app that can't get GPS fix is little better than a chocolate fireguard. 3/2021 Tried again on a new phone and the GPS issue seems to be resolved.

    (using Android auto) Until recently, it was perfect, 5 stars. Best interface yet. Now, the location and speed is erratic. Recalculating all the time, constantly zooming in and out. Two other improvement could be unique to this app, chimes instead of voice indications for turns, and last minute chime on upcoming hazard or police. The warnings come to much in advance. Perhaps if the app determined an estimation of the time to the event instead of the distance... Yes. I'm a programmer.

    All of a sudden things aren't working correctly. My car icon is now just a blue dot with an arrow. The map keeps reorienting itself from north up to my original setting, even when driving on a straight road. Now the alerts are only working some of the times. Sometimes I hear the audio alert, and sometimes I only get a popup. This all started happening about 24 hours ago. It is all really frustrating. Update: I sent a facebook message like you asked and never got a response!!

    I use this App 12 hrs daily !!! No other navigator can be better than this !! Is same like you send somebody in front of you to check your way !! I recommend WAZE because I use it every day at my work being a delivery driver . Speed cameras, police , accidents , portholes on road , avoid route to not get stuck in traffic !! In one word WAZE is like a good friend ! Thank you for the App . And I would give more stars than 5 lol TY TY

    At the beginning, this app was amazing. User submitted reports, a community, and also accuracy. These days, there's some community reports, but you don't get the same notifications as before. Also, what really makes me mad is that it will give me really bad directions. It will make me take a route that was completely unnecessary from the usual. Ever since the Google acquisition, it has only been a slow death to Waze, which is so unfortunate. It's obvious, that Google wants gmaps to be better.

    I've been using Waze for 6yrs. I absolutely love it! Until recently... I bought a 2020 F150 and it worked great with Android Auto for 4 months. Last week when I connected via Android Auto, my car icon doesn't show me facing the wrong direction. IE- I'll be facing/driving north and my icon continues to show in facing southeast. It's because of this, i think my direction guidance keeps lagging. It'll freeze location, then jump/speed up to catch up. I've tried everything to fix, but doesn't work.

    The app is good for notifying you where speed traps are but that's about it. The navigation itself is 2nd to google, and it fails to reroute you sometimes despite accidents being reported along your route. I've had it tell me to do things that make no sense and don't help me reach my destination any quicker.

    I love using this over Google maps. My only complaint is when I have to load my planned drives they delete them if you don't leave by the "time" you chose. I wish they had a planned drives that you can just save without knowing the time. I drive a lot of places for my personal business & really dislike that part.

    As a regular Waze user, I would say, overall, its good but lately Waze has been showing me a longer route. Eg. I am supposed to go straight at a junction but Waze showed to turn left, then make a U-turn and go back to where I was. I went straight instead (ignoring Waze) and resulted in shorter distance and time. Hope something can be done about this. This has happened to me quite a number of times. Thank you.

    Waze is the best GPS/ navigation app there is. I have been using it for almost 2 years now & it has never been wrong. It tells you how long your journey will take & what time you'll arrive at your destination. It tells you the best time to leave too. I love that you can immediately report crashes, heavy traffic, bad weather & other hazards to let other 'wazers' know about them. It also lets you monitor your speed & alerts you to any upcoming speed cameras, heavy traffic, or other delays.

    I like what they have a whole lot. Big fan!! But it would be sooooo much better if they offered a step by step direction like google(hate google) maps does. I'm not a fan of google period!! That's why I went with Waze. Waze also did not work in Cumberland Maryland today and google maps did(very frustrating). I was extremely disappointed by this!! I will rate it higher when it offers step by step directions and works in western Maryland.

    Use to work flawless.. it is now annoying to have the 'recent places' open up automatically on start up. Now the new update takes up even more real estate from the purpose of this app which is the map and guidance. The two buttons and 'where to' simply open a new screen. The usability of the app gets worse with each update.

    Totally unreliable only give this one star for the nice functions it has Multiple times it has directed me on a route that ends in me needing to walk at the end. I counted at least 3 times when it directed me straight into the worst traffic and only indicated the delay once I commit to the route (as in I couldn't take an alternative). All 3 times I know for a fact other routes were faster. All 3 times I missed (not late) missed appointments. Rather use Google maps

"Hey Nicholas, sorry for the late reply. This is a known issue on Ford's side. Please update to Sync 3.4" Yeah..Ike I said, I've been on 3.4 since last July. Waze broke on THEIR update around Aug-Sep. I'm not the only one. Read the reviews. This app is now garbage.

    Lately GPS won't work correctly when used in Android Auto. The car icon will become a blue dot, I'll be driving sideways down the road, suddenly it thinks I'm driving down a side street perpendicular to where I'm actually driving. The speedometer no longer shows and I don't get any alerts. It works fine on it's own, but horribly in Android Auto. I uninstalled and reinstalled, and it worked again for a little bit, but it's back not working.

    The Waze app has been very good to me it shown me different routes to take to shorten up the time it tells you if there's a vehicle ahead that may be broken down and if you still see you can tell it it let you know if there's any police in the area so if you got a heavy foot it just let you know to slow down a little bit but it also has the speedometer on it which also let you know the speed limit for the area that you're going whether you're going too slow or too fast it's it's been a good good

There doesn't seem to be an exit option other than through the phone.

    I have had great experiences with Waze. The estimated time is usually correct unless I try to beat it. 😊 There have only been a couple of times when my directions were slightly flawed and those were usually when there were recent changes on the road. Sometimes I know some routes that will be quicker than the directions provided by Waze, though. When I take them, my time does change to the earlier arrival time.

    Updated review- update to app recently installed and it appears to have fixed the issues mentioned below. Back to 5 stars! -- Great app but as others have mentioned mine has also recently stopped working correctly when connected thru Android auto since a recent update. Position on the map constantly rotates, map is sluggish to refresh and not acurate, and the speedometer has disappeared from mine as well. Vehicle arrow also occasionally displays as sideways or crooked and not pointing up.

    I've used this app for years with no issues. My most used app on my phone. Then a few weeks back something happened and its more of a pain than helpful. My screen is constantly zoomed in so I can see surroundings. If I zoom out it refocuses back to zoomed in within seconds. My icon is sideways and glitches and lags badly. Unfortunately if it doesn't get fixed soon I will uninstall it and have to look for something else.

Paired with my Ford it just seems to not want to alert me tell me the speed. It's almost like it's having a hard time keeping up with the GPS. When this app was working it was fantastic. I also noticed that about a month or two ago I had to completely start over because it wouldn't find my login and I lost all my points and how far I've been.

    This is an excellent application that has accompanied me for several years. Its not perfect but definitely one of the best. Unfortunately, after updating the device to Android 10, the option of "keep waze on top" disappeared from the application. This is a feature that is important to me (and may save lives!). I hope that soon the application will be updated and the feature will be restored. Only then can I give waze the stars it deserves. Update 6.12.20: Its been over a year and today came an update that includes the feature of "keep waze on top". End of the tedious games of having to fiddle with the mobile while driving to get the application back. It's just a shame it took a year. Now the app should take care of more swift traffic updates and better AI route planning. Update 8.12.20: I was happy too fast. There is a bug that does not allow the use of "keep waze on top". If the device is in landscape mode, I get a wonderful black screen and I need to remove the device from the car holder and rotate it to portrait mode for the screen to turn back on. Really useful :-(. For now I keep the mobile in portrait mode, but I hope to return it to portrait mode which is much better for map viewing. You asked to reach to you in facebook, which I did few months ago. ZERO replies, like I am writing to myself. Next time when you ask for something at least have the curtesy to read it please. The bug still exists....

Down to a few feet destinations in the middle of no where!!! Then HP got out of the market of navigation. Sadly. On my Google pixel 4 XL the app crashes my phone and causes it to go into a dead mode randomly traveling usually right before I get to the destination and I miss my exit or I miss my turn at the destination.

If I'm not navigating somewhere it will not display the car icon, will not go into 3D view, the icon lags like the gps is slow, and will not display the speed or speed limit. When I am navigating somewhere it goes into 3D view, is still very laggy, and still will not show the speedometer or the the speed limit. App is fully up to date. Will write a better review when issues are fixed.

    Pretty consistent. My biggest issue is that it constantly makes you take left turns on extremely busy streets with no lights.

    Waze, the people who are in control of the app don't seem to understand plain English so maybe someone else will see this and understand. For the last 6 months there have been problems with the voice interaction. It won't give complete instructions so I have to look at my phone more than I should. Also, it has been tell me that my destination is IN my right or left, instead of ON my right or left. None of these places are IN me but when I reported it, I was told that nothing was wrong.

    This app isn't consistent, it has lag in your position to the map occasionally. The vehicle icon keeps changing to a blue circle instead of the chosen car icon. The speedometer doesn't always, show along with the road speed limit. The speed camera alerts are slow and often you've passed the area before the warning. It's a reasonably good platform but it needs work and speeding up. A little bit disappointing to be honest. Needs work to bring it up to scratch.

    This app is all about drivers helping each other, and it works great. Really helps in long hauls. One problem is the warnings are far too short. 0.5 miles is nothing when driving on the interstate. If you can change the distance you're warned, I haven't found out how, if it isn't a feature, it needs to be. I would much prefer 1 mile warnings. Still the best travel app.

    Unusable as of 2 months ago with android auto. I have written for support but gotten minimal response. This morning it marked me in the wrong side of a river traveling in the wrong direction in rush hour traffic. This is just plain DANGEROUS. Since Waze is owned by Google, who also owns Map's AND Android Auto, I have to wonder what is actually going on here since Maps does not have the same issues. Are they trying to consolidate? Why doesn't Maps offer the same functions as Waze? No response?

Unless you plan your entire life around your GPS app, the way waze works will probably forever elude you. As for me, I use it maybe once or twice a month and it never seems willing to do what I really need it to. Guess I'm going back to Google with my tail between my legs.

    Totally inaccurate and annoying. Not trying to listen to the "rerouting" chirp loud as hell for 45 minutes straight when I'm on the highlighted route! It shows the arrow traveling directly NEXT to the highlighted route, not on it and keeps chirping and telling me to get on the highlighted route which I'm ALREADY ON. It also does the same to my husband. It's been doing this for months. I was trying to give them the benefit of the doubt but after months there's no fix? Trash
