- Minor bug fixes and improvements
Free app and sooooo much better than the paid sat navs you buy. Certainly better than my incar Toyota nav. I make regular journeys and after putting the destination into my Toyota nav I end up getting to the destination well over the initial starting time due to hold ups traffic etc. Waze tells you a time you will get there and 99% of the time that will be correct . However be prepared though you will see so many back/side streets you have never seen before😁 I like the fact everyone updates the traffic details so everyone is sharing real time information. So many ways you can modify the settings from changing the voices map settings colours etc etc etc. I don't go anywhere without this. I use my Toyota nav just because the screen is so much bigger so easier to see the turnings etc but go by the commands on Waze. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
Can't use the phone!
I know this may seem churlish but when you're being directed by this rather brilliant app, if you receive a call, you no longer receive directions - which when you're bring routed down some obscure country lanes can leave you with the options of; A - cancelling the call, or B - getting a bit lost. All in all a very impressive App. Would be great if I could integrate it into my car's satnav though (BMW - any suggestions appreciated) and I have recommended it to my friends.
Great app, bad programming
The app is great as it keeps up with real time traffic around about you. After you've used the app for a certain amount of time it also allows you to check the price of petrol near your location.
The only problem but it is big, is that the app always using your location on your phone, so when you are not using it, it continues to drain your battery. Which results in you having to go into location service turn it off and on every time. It would be much better if it was set to 'while using the app' like other apps use.
