    I have to have it to show the upcoming lane I need out of the 3 or whatever. Google has that and its a life saver. And definitely need street names. Weird to not have street names. I have to have both of those. Also, I wanted to plan a route in reverse and haven't figured out where it lets you switch the to and from. ? It's got to be there somewhere. If not, that too is a deal breaker. It looks super cute though. I'll keep checking back for those things to be added Full Review

    This app DOES NOT work with my Motorola Z Force Droid!! I used to love using it on my Samsung Galaxy, but now that I've upgraded to a newer phone Waze doesn't seem interested in helping it to be functional on my Droid. If I want to use it at all, I have to completely restart my phone and reset my GPS updating. That works about half of the time. Google Maps works perfectly Everytime, all the time. I'm very disappointed in Waze. This used to be a good app. Full Review

    Uses heavy resources . Bought a note8 . Bigger battery and faster everything. My clients like the voices. It wouldnt let me load previous acct so had to start over. I kept getting error. Needs refinement and improvement like every map app but way better than bing or google, the only competitors i believe Full Review

    Highly recommend. Hard to live without this. Especially the alternate routes feature where I can select the easier to drive routes if only takes a minute or two longer. I have recommended this to many people. This is my new go to navigation app, I wish i could load it into my car nav system, which has a large screen, but it's not traffic aware. At work where i wanted to have dinner with partners who flew in, staying at different placrs, who all wanted to use their own rental cars we all used the Waze app, with great results. Should become the new standard for car NAV systems. Full Review

    To be fair, error on new phones gone though does show 2 accts(??) Really great app but don't change phones as account recovery fails with absolutely no way to resolve. Enter phone#, enter texted verification, then it just says 'sorry...' with no way to resolve. Enter phone # and it says 'already used' with NO way to resolve. Update:. After telling me it can not recover my account, it now shows all my favorites. Again, great app but this part raises blood pressure quickly. Full Review

    I love this app! It's effing great. Real time updates are a life saver (time saver too) only thing I'd like to change is when I click on say, places to eat or supermarkets, I'd like more options. I asked for places to eat and passed a large pub/eatery on the way which wasn't listed but to be honest. It's not an issue. Currently, my favourite app on my phone. I think an improvement would be, which I come across often is there's no "lane closed" there's just hazards. I think a closed lane option would be helpful. Full Review

    Well once again Waze has done it....Yes!...it sent me the long way where I needed to go. Come "Waze" developer's can't you guys get this sorted. And why are we still wining for lane assistance when there other apps that can do this with ease. "Google" are on point as is "Here"...I'm starting to dislike Waze after using this app for well over two year's. But it's letting us down. Full Review

    In version 4.29.0.0 still has bugs after updating. Remaining time and mileage in landscape position disappeared. Is anybody here for responding? I don't care about your formal reply to my review but you're going wrong way adding new features that's destroying previous good working version. Full Review

    Honestly, you'll never get more up to date information than a user-driven real time gps. It's nuts getting alerts about a car pulled over on a shoulder --that happened 10 minutes ago -- was reported immediately by a waze user. Or unearth those predatorial cops that setup speed traps that protect no one except a departmental revenue stream... You all know what I mean. I recommend to all. Share your road conditions and help contribute, let's all drive safe and help each other. Full Review

    The info hasn't saved me from an accident but it has re routed me in time to avoid parking lots on interstates. I hate driving without it, now. Better every month. Join us and help! Would love integration to offline maps but I just download Google maps and switch to that app until I am in cell range again. The real time info doesn't matter if no one has data. Full Review

    It's would've been great experience if you guys where to add more visual infos as you approach highway exits. Even if its not your exist, a visual arrow that shows you what to do and as you approach your exist, a clear visual prior to your exist. I hope you guys understand what im trying to say.Sygic is the only app that has that feature. And as we all know Google maps is becoming more useless, you are the only hope :) Full Review

    This has changed how I drive! I no longer stick with the same route, regardless of traffic, because I don't know if a different route will be quicker! Listening to traffic reports on the radio is not nearly as accurate as this! I use this for everyday travel & out of state travel. I'd be lost (or forever stuck in traffic) without this! Lol Full Review

    Dave R Published date: September 23, 2017

    After submitting a report my phone starts blowing up with "thanks" notifications. There is no way to turn them off unless you disable all notifications. No paid version that is ad-free. Developers are MIA and you can only get automated replies when you try to reach them. Voice controls are horrible and don't work at all. Nags for ratings, crashes if it can't get data for too long (sucks for road trips). Full Review

    Kevin Howell Published date: September 13, 2017

    Not sure what the low ratings are for - this app is a life (and time) saver!! Have used it for years and the only suggestion I would have is to add an option to show fast food, hotel and gas choices along the chosen route (within a mile). Full Review

    💋😍I LOVE WAZE 😍💋 maps. ..voice guided... even tells you when the lights are out or If there is a new pothole. .. never mind if there is a new roadblock or traffic camera. ..

    Too many taps for some tasks. Cannot seem to report construction sites. Cannot turn off selected warnings! Otherwise works really well. But, just had to create a new account due to overly tight rules about verification. Lost years of points. Bad dog, Waze, very bad dog! Full Review

    A great app on android phones but restricted functions when using as part of android auto at the moment. Would like to see speed limits on android auto version. Also only able to record issues on the side of carriage way you are traveling. Very basic and unreliable on Windows 10 mobile. Would be good to see consistency açross all platforms. Full Review

    Amy G Published date: September 11, 2017

    It's annoying that just about every update seems to require me to have to re-pair my Jabra Classic Bluetooth with my phone. Had to do it again today. If I don't then I can hardly hear the sound of any notifications that the app has. Other than that, Waze works pretty well. Updated on 9/11/17 - Nearly every update causes Waze to become unresponsive and freeze up. That's a very annoying trait. Full Review

    Michael Richardson Published date: September 12, 2017

    I use Waze for everything navigation related. It's a great tool for finding the cheapest gas on long routes, anticipating traffic buildup, and finding the fastest route. It's also fun to help out other drivers by calling out obstacles and hazards. It has a simple layout, many personal customization options, and a scoring aspect that makes it fun. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Updated 12 September 17--still the best App out there for navigation and alertness Full Review

    Adam Eyler Published date: September 13, 2017

    Works really well with lots of live updates on what is happening on the road ahead of you. With one exception... the app randomly shuts down and needs restarted. Also, It would be nice to change some of the colors on the map to make it easier to read. Nice app all in all. Question; what do you do with the points you earn? Full Review

    Gerardo Rodriguez Published date: September 14, 2017

    This app saved my life!!! This shows alert in realtime preventing hazards on the road. 1 mile ahead there was a metal plate big enough to shred my tires or pierce the mechanics under the car. I used to prefer Google Maps, but this takes the cake. The community feel is good and report alerts keeps everyone in the know. Simply put, esta brutal!!! Full Review

    John Albright Published date: September 15, 2017

    Great app but needs some fine tuning. Suggestions needed: -add the ability to enter an intersection eliminating the steps to find the intersection on the map, then clicking on the location. -add the ability to choose multiple stops. -correct the problem of showing upcoming posts, from other wazers, on the map/report that are not on your route. Example: I am traveling West on the Interstate will exit for my next turn to travel South on the next Hwy on my trip in 10 miles but the map/report shows incidents on the Interstate past the 10 miles, which is not part of my route. You have to be careful to notice that these are not on your route! Full Review

    Aaron Washington Published date: September 11, 2017

    I use this app because of the live feedback from other users. Like other apps it has its good and bad. The one thing that irritates me is when it shuts down while traveling to a destination. I'm not sure if it's my network or the app. Overall, this is my best app for navigation! Full Review

    I have started using Waze since March this year 2017. It's been great so far. However, it started to crash whenever I use Waze app since September 13, 2017. It cannot be used at all. Not sure what happened. Hopefully improvement can be done as soon as possible. Full Review

    This app is a game changer. I am no longer limited by my anxiety about getting lost. In fact, I am now a professional driver. I can go anywhere. I drove across the country with this app. It beats all the other navigating apps I've tried. Easy to follow with updates on traffic patterns and alternate routes, it's perfect. Full Review

    I used to love this app. It worked great for years. The last update made it completely useless. It freezes up frequently (it NEVER did that before) you're waiting for it to give directions and the dam thing is frozen. And it constantly recalculates. Very annoying. What a shame. I'll try Tom Tom. Full Review

    It's funny, I don't normally comment on play store. But this app is amazing. Literally takes u the fastest route. Went a way I never knew before. And got there ten minutes Early. Lol... That's crazy...screw Google maps. Always taking me on the longest routes. Full Review

    Every few speed traps fails to speak out the warning. No Finnish language support. When marking road works etc. via Android Auto, only works intermittently, most of the time just ignores submission. Only rarely is able to find addresses that Google Maps or car builtin navigator has no trouble finding. Full Review

    Will Conner Published date: September 20, 2017

    It's a good app with two annoying flaws in the social features. 1. Can only connect with phonebook entries and Facebook users, not to other wazers, which is weird, 2. The contacts list to send etas to is alphabetical, not by frequent use, no ability to set favourites or pin users. For a crowd based app, the social part sucks. Full Review

    Used this app for years now, but recently I tried using it with my new Car. A KIA Optima Sportswagon and Android Auto and simply does not work it just sticks and does not pick up that I am moving or anything. So now I have to use Google maps which is rubbish Full Review

    Paco Vasda Published date: September 18, 2017

    It's a love-hate relationship. Waze will not say U-TURN. It will take me miles out of the way rather than just simply say "turn around" it makes me 3min late quite often. because it takes me way out of the way to a very long set of turns instead of saying "wrong way" or turn around or "make a U-turn".

    Keep freezing on me. I have to always delete and download the app to make it work. And now on my way back home from Georgia to Miami, FL it decided to completely freeze, I tried to log out and log back in and it said my acct is not able to be found. So again, I HAVE to re-do a new one.... like fix this Full Review

    Glitchy and kind of slow. Doesn't always start correctly. Sometimes when I ask it to navigate it comes up with choices. Selecting a choice takes me to the map but it doesn't do the navigation. It wants me to press a "go" button but the button disappears immediately. Full Review

    Why do your 'Elgin' reports stay on for so long?? I see so many that should disappear after a few days but most have been there for 19 days. It will cause unnecessary re-routing. Why not make them auto disappear after a set time?? Full Review

    Your app sucks!! It keeps taking me around circles when I'm trying to pick up passengers with Lyft. I've uninstalled and reinstalled it twice and it still doesn't work properly. Sometimes this shows me where construction is and sometimes it doesn't. It also sometimes shows me stop lights and then it won't show any stop lights. It's cause me to lose passengers and makes my rating go down. Passengers end up canceling their ride because of navigation Full Review

    Keep growing but don't get too fancy, this app needs to be viewed while driving. Still think it takes around 1 too many clicks to note something on the road. You have improved that interface slightly though, so five stars. Full Review

    Easy to use. Great features such as police areas, cars stopped, accidents and other useful info as you navigate the streets.

    Absolutely love this app. Just wish that there was a way for it to learn based on you driving actions. Everyday it tries to send me down this "street" which really isn't much more that an alley and everyday I go around it. I didn't even know it had an actually street name, I always thought it was a driveway. Full Review
