Bugs and stability fixes
Great for work
My work takes me around the UK all year long. Even on a quiet job I hit the road at different times every day, and Waze will always help me get there fast - even if it's not a direct or obvious route. The input features are fantastic and will make you feel like your journey is better because other users have improved it for you, and it's very satisfying to be able to return the favour. No one needs to sit in traffic longer than necessary! The 'planned journey' feature does not always hold up (often the journey times are several minutes longer in the morning than the night before), but the automatic re-routing as you're driving more than makes up for it
Waze is the future
I've spent lots of money on different GPS systems over the years and the traffic info is poor, out of date or gets to me after I get stuck in traffic! Waze is the way forward, the more that join, the more that use it the better it just gets. Much more accurate, much more effective and even down to I only have to carry one device, my smart phone! No leaving an expensive sat nav in the car to encourage thieves to break in and cost you double to replace the nav and fix the car! Waze is very user friendly and I have recommended it to so many friends! Get on board, get involved and grow this brilliant app!
It's sometimes a little tricky to understand which lane is to be taken when the Motorway splits in three, or other complex junctions, so lane guidance of sorts would be great. It would also be good to be able to see the speed limit of the road displayed too. Finally I do seem to be getting a few more server connection errors, even when I have a 4G signal. Other than that keep up the good work. The traffic is great and it's fantastic just to able to type in a business or tourist attraction and it quickly finds it.
