A truly "essential"

If you haven't tried Waze and you are still using your Tom Tom or Magellan, please do yourself a big favor and try this app! If you're using the Google maps app, and noting the traffic information, guess what? It probably came from Waze.

The app offers not just up to date but virtually up to the minute map and traffic information because people just like you are continually contributing to the traffic (and short cut!) information. Because of it's social structure, the more people on Waze, the more current and more accurate the map is. For each destination, it offers alternate routes and each route displays the queue of hazards, traffic delays, police sightings, etc. so you have an idea of what to expect on your journey. If you pick an alternate route and deviate from it so that the route has to be recalculated, the app will jump back to the primary route after the recalculation, which can be frustrating if you aren't expecting it, but that's the only item that I think needs improvement, and I wouldn't call it a bug.

I use this app every day and it is the #1 most valuable app for travel IMHO.

Waze makes it fun and simple and social to get from point A to B!

I downloaded Waze after one of my colleagues used it on a drive back from the Upper Peninsula to help cut off 30 min to an hour of traffic by taking back roads. I am not too frequent of a commuter and maybe drive on average 2.5 - 3.0 hours on a weekly basis; however even for a low commuter like me I could see the app paying dividends. Right away it began shaving time off of my commutes. I found myself becoming a more useful driver and tagging hazards such as road construction, cars pulled to the shoulder, ice, and a police car slowing traffic down near an accident. It has been highly satisfying to see people thumbs up my hazard reports and to see my little baby Waze profile grow into an adult Waze as I contribute to the driving community with reports. I love how even before I leave I get such a granular look at the speed of the roads near the parking structure and leading to the main highways. It has helped me become a better planner and commuter especially after I synced Waze to my Google Calendar! Thank you for making driving fun and simple and social Waze!

With cheer,
Grace Hsia

Show Me The Waze

I absolutely love this app. I've used Waze and my Garmin (updated maps) at the same time, and Waze, in my opinion, is much better because I have fellow Wazers out there alerting to road hazards, police sightings, current gas prices, and so forth. Personally, I don't need voice-assisted routing (in most cases); therefore, I mute my Waze app - no alert sounds, etc. Keeping in mind that all apps, programs, etc., have glitches from time to time, the only thing I wish could be done differently is reporting a wrong address. On more than one occasion, I've had Waze direct me to a rural business only to find out that the business is, for example, .5 miles further down the road.

Not a complaint, but it would be nice if we had more "moods" to choose from. Also, I'd like a way to add friends without allowing the app access to Facebook or my contacts.

Great app though. I use it every day for my commute to and from work - the police trap reports are invaluable to me!! I recommend Waze to all my friends.
