Waze Navigation & Live Traffic Reviews

App Slowly Going Down Hill

Used to be great  App Slowly Going Down Hill  1 star

This app used to be great. Now I find the that it no longer uses my favorite route, I’m rarely ever rerouted due to traffic, but more importantly, I constantly get the “Error Calculating Route” notification. Yet Google Maps works just fine. Both are owned by Google. It’s annoying.


Usually wrong times and pretty annoying  RickyM33  2 star

Gave it two stars mainly because I use it everyday for a ballpark ETA. I know my neighborhood and traffic patterns pretty well. This app insists on taking me towns over to save a potential minute. I usually go with my “gut” and 99.9% of the time I choose the fastest route against the apps wishes. Also, the app insists in telling me fog up ahead... as if I can’t see the road ahead of me and see the light fog. I’d love this app if you can “draw” on the map and make my own route then give me my eta. I take the same route everyday.. why not have a saved route option? The messenger board is a broken feature. “Accident up ahead” if someone like myself comments on the thread “which lane(s)?” there’s no alert if someone answered your question. You have to find the spot on the map and hope you click on the correct accident marker. If I leave the app to check a text message (as passenger) 3 of 5 times the app will shut down and have to be restarted.. A lot of improvements to make guys..


HUD mode  11122334444  5 star

Love the app! But i use a heads up display in my car and adding a HUD mode to this app will make it soo much more better for me... just a thought


No Icon  budnextdoor  1 star

I’ve downloaded your app but the icon doesn’t appear on my screen. How can I make it appear


Great but ads are dangerous!  chicagomez  4 star

I always regret when I ignore Waze and go another route. But sometimes it doesn’t catch up w you quick enough for a direction change. But it’s usually good. Bad thing is these pop up ads ought to be illegal bf they pop up right when u need to look at phone and then I can either wreck trying to swipe it off there or miss your turn.

Stops route guidance to advertise!!  GGItsMe48236  1 star

Unbelievable!! The app stops providing route guidance while I am on the expressway to offer me some type of commuter ride sharing service. This has happened to me more than once!! I am rolling down the expressway in a very unfamiliar place only to look at Waze to realize that it has stopped routing me because it wants to ask me questions about whether or not I want to join a ride sharing service. STUPID AND DANGEROUS!!!


Waze  XD SXCDY  1 star

Waze is trash so I was on a highway using waze it said turn left on a highway don’t use Waze


System add on if possible  11C ABN  4 star

The system is extremely helpful If possible could we add car stalled in Lanes


The don’t listen  Sum1tookmyniknaym  1 star

I’ve driven the same route, twice a day, five days a week. Every day, twice a day, I report the same problems. They don’t fix anything. I go to their web site and that section of road is locked so I can’t fix it. I contact them. They ignore me. The information on the map is wrong and a “map editor” (horrible title for idiots who don’t edit the map) won’t fix it or unlock it. If they don’t want anything reported other than traffic and cops, remove the other buttons. They clutter up the app if you don’t care what’s reported.


Works well but...  J_Smitth09  3 star

Would really appreciate if instead of telling me the correct speed when I exceed it, you told me the correct speed on the road regardless in the top corner not what I'm currently sitting at.


I stopped  Johnmcdj  1 star

Using this Cos I got to be safe on roads


Latest update completely broke navigation  thepatientfrog  1 star

App can’t tell where you are at all


Unimpressed  Hoggtwo  1 star

I don’t understand why this app continues to come up every time I attach it to my car. I don’t even have the app on my phone and it keeps coming up every time. I can’t uninstall it. Please tell me how to delete it. Not happy.


Extremely slow when changing routes  persianbabak  2 star

Good features but ridiculously slow when you take another route or street and it takes long to change route and show new direction. Very annoying and frustrating when you concentrating on the road and miss the turn you supposed to take and its still stock on old route when your direction has changed and it is still showing straight so you keep going straight then after 10 seconds or so it finally updates and tells you to go to another street and turn around. Extremely slow route update unloke other gps maps that are instant. Navigation needs a drop down banner showing directions when you need to be in another app instead of voice. Voice is annoying when it keeps repeating. For instance before a turn or a round about it tells you a couple of times where to go. Very annoying when you are listening to radio or something important and it keeps interupting. Map layout and colour is cold and boring unlike google maps. The only appealing feature i like about waze is speed detection and alert and camera alert. And apart from these two features its very slow navigating between routes, cold and boring appearance and not showing all surrounding road and street names and property numbers. Google maps is the best but dont have speed and camera alerts and detection. If i find another app that has it all i wont use waze anymore.


Works a treat  TheRiddick666  5 star

Works great and is obviously heavily reliant on user information for traffic updates. It would be fantastic if uses stop using the police icon for mobile speed camera traps. It’s pretty simple if there’s no police in the area don’t use the police icon!


Brilliant app built on user input. Some additional features would be good  SG_132  4 star

I have been using Waze for a few years now and I absolutely love it. Travel time is generally accurate barring live incidents and the fact that it relies on user input means everything is real time. I wish it had the feature of lane choices that Google maps shows e.g. which lanes you’d need to take to go a specific direction, particularly in tunnels. Specifically, it would also be good to add non destination points en route by tapping as Waze tends to only take you by major roads which can sometimes be bypassed through the use of side lanes. All in all, a very handy app especially in cities with lots of users. Easy to find parking, fuel prices and stations on the way - would definitely recommend.


Amazing!  Greg8372936  5 star

Reports really help, easy to use as well. It really helps me get around easily and stress free.

Frustrating sending a correction  Ken Howard  1 star

Love the maps but... when it asks you to offer suggestions...??? In Australia they pronounce our, often Aboriginal-based names, incorrectly. So you send a report with the correct pronunciation then you get a no-reply email saying “not enough information” then ask you to join a confusing dos-looking forum. I don’t have time for that. Was just being polite. So in future my thought is “why bother”!


Wazeeeeeese  CHATSWOODWOG  5 star

Tell you where the pigzzzzz are laying ..... Everyone get on and keep reporting where they are........ keep them guessing not us!!!!


Unreliable  BAEW-  2 star

I’ve been using waze for months now and most of the time it has been great. The marking features really help out as well. But recently, this app has gone downhill. Under tunnels it sometimes completely loses you and leaves you scrambling if you don’t know where you are, other times it’s simply unreliable. It tries to deliver the fastest route, but in cities when it gives you such short notice it just makes everything worse. I’ve really liked this app, but it needs to improve


Uh oh error  ejbkabcjb  1 star

If I travel more than 100 miles. I get a server error. Annoyed.

Sound Issues  Lone * Gal  1 star

When I first tried WAZE I LOVED it ! Then for no reason the sound went out. I can’t even hear over Road Noise! Unfortunately I am not blessed w a new enough model car to hear it thru my radio. So I’ve tried- with no help from WAZE, to figure it out. I’m at a loss. Greatest App for directions that ever was. But I can no longer use it.

Too many local roads to avoid little traffic caused more delay  Jdb mom  1 star

Too many local roads to avoid little traffic caused more delay. Not worth it.


Tagalog Voice  UCDGrad09LG  3 star

Can you bring the Tagalog voice option to the US? I live in California but I want to learn Tagalog and would like my Waze app to speak Tagalog. I had that experience while vacationing in a Manila but would like to also experience here in the US.


Garbage  Crooked-vulture  1 star



What once was found.  HambyMD  1 star

There was a time when Waze was an exceptional app and impressed me with its ingenuity and creativeness. All of that has been lost by its inability to remain a stable and reliable solution. Waze continues to be plagued by route server calculating failures and a general lack of reliability. Unfortunately Waze has opened up the opportunity to be unseated as a leading navigation app. I’d look elsewhere if looking for a reliable navigation solution.


Stop guessing where I want to go  5kullhead  3 star

The "feature" where Waze tries to guess where I want to go AND if I don't cancel that guess it'll override my current destination to take me where Waze guesses I want the go...even though I have a destination entered! Make this feature so I can turn it off please


I WISH I COULD GIVE THIS 0 STARS!!!!  mr.flextape  5 star

i have never been more disgusted in my life. I was driving to missouri and when i entered state it didn’t even welcome me. I should feel loved. It should know i’ve never been here. do not ever but this app. WILL NOT BE PURCHASING AGAIN!!


Waze is awesome!  TLT10  5 star

I really like how it shows traffic and alternate routes. Other helpful features are road hazards and police alerts!!


Going going GONE  Megavars  1 star

Latest. Points are not updating to account. Constantly having to re-enter my registered mobile details. Map editor does not recognise my account login. Cannot update as it does not recognize my phone. Going round in circles. Oh forgot this is a community based traffic app, we don’t count! Google, give us back the pre-May 2018 version please.


Pretty Good App  Flymoll  4 star

Would be nice if the app in apple car play could display the actual car speed as it does on the phone useful cross check


No mic  Jimsj4  3 star

No ability to use microphone on CarPlay, no icon for it. Google maps has it!


Avoid!  osibig  1 star

When you stop at a traffic light they have the cheek to use your phone as a bill board for advertisements!!! Deleted the app immediately...


Suilteoir1  cymrumick  1 star

The App has problems. It hasn’t been recording my points for nearly two months. I reported the problems and the developers acknowledged the problem and said they were working on it. They still haven’t solved it. :(


Waze car play  OREILLR3  1 star

Waze on iphone is great put on car play its Useless i use Google maps its great on carplay


Suggestion for future update  macgib  4 star

Love Waze and use it nearly every day. Would like to see an easier way to report common incidents without having to tap through several options to select the correct one. For me, it’s reporting vehicles stopped on the shoulder. The ability to set a shortcut from the main navigation screen would make the app easier and safer to use.


Good app but will not allow to update petrol & diesel prices.  Gerard1968  2 star

This is a good app but it will not allow to update petrol & diesel prices. Keep getting an error when updating.

Battery is very warm in a seconds  Viber ex-user  2 star

I have iPhone SE. As soon as I set up a route in Wize, the battery becomes hot.


Ineffective in Dublin  indeks  3 star

Not effective in Dublin. We have tested it 4 times with one of my friends - I went the way WAZE proposed, he went an alternative way based on experience. 4 out of 4 not only he was faster, but I stuck in traffic for longer than usual. There is an explanation for this though. WAZE offers the route at a certain point in time. At that time it may be the best. You take it, but in a few minutes (in Dublin it’s this fast) situation dramatically changes. But you already have passed by the turn to an alternative. At this point you are forced to go the way WAZE initially calculated BEFORE the traffic stopped still.
