Customer Reviews

great algorithm, decent interface

First the good: Love how aggressive the app is about trying to reroute around traffic areas and how creative it is about using small roads or alternate routes. Now the areas for improvement: overall the interface is laggy, sometimes your appearance on the map is not updated until you're already gone through an intersection. The warning to not use the app while driving is fairly worthless as anyone or just press the "I am a passenger "option. This is very annoying when you are the passenger and it basically seems this is just done for liability purposes on the developer end than to help the user at all. The frequency of alerts for driving directions and for other road hazards e.g. police, potholes etc is way too high and interrupt any other radio or Podcasts or Music you're trying to listen to. While there is an option to turn off the directions and keep listening to all the other little alerts about police or pulled over cars etc, there's no way to do it the other way around to have continued driving directions guidance but not hear about every car that is pulled over. it would be amazing if there was also an option to decrease or increase the amount of detail and frequency of alerts given about the driving directions e.g. if you want all alerts including hearing about an exit miles before or simply when you're there. Overall pretty great app with regards to the directions algorithm, just need some tweaks in the interface.

The best gps app around

I have to say when Waze first started out I was disappointed. It seem to be a good idea in theory but hadn't got there yet. Plus it was eating more data than I think it should have. Turn around to me start using it again in 2015. It is exactly what you hope for in a gps app. It has very good not perfect traffic tracking. Which makes better routes. The ease of use makes it ideal. I use it in conjunction with my car built in to help guide me some of the time. It doesn't seem to eat data like it used to. In fact I am in the same tiny plan that I was in for the last 5 yrs. it is worth the downloads. And the ads are sometimes useful and not annoying. Now the bad, why I did not give it a 4 is probably subjective to few people. First, which is really the coolest features it has. The voice navigation. It is cool when they have something unique like the Grand Tour guys do your turn by turn but here is the bad. You can't keep it forever and they never tell you a new one is available. In fact once the specialty voice is gone I mute it entirely.
Second, I would be willing to pay for the maps to be download and eat a couple of gigabytes of space on my phone to have the maps. This is not a bad thing but a wish list.

Reliable but a few suggestions

**2017 update: I went from 4 to 3 stars. No option to keep on main roads when available I've gone down too many weird routes/side roads even in low traffic times. Frustrating. I'll keep app to help me figure out travel time and traffic but no longer use for navigation unless options are added/improved. Disappointing. I wanted to love it. This is after using for 2+ years. Also no good voices any more which was a huge plus. Fix yo self Waze, and I'll be back and amend this review**
Original review: It does what it needs to do, and accurately. Always get to my destination with Waze. All the alerts are a bonus. I often turn on when I know where I am going just for the alerts. Two things I'd like to see changed, one necessary, the other a want. 1) Waze has a tendency to take you weird roads. We have an RV and that is less than ideal. I'd love to see the option to "stay on main roads" for times you just need a major thoroughfare. 2) love the promo voices. Any way we can purchase voice pack of our favorites? Just makes the ride more joyful when Terry Crews or Morgan Freeman is there with you. Thx for listening!
