Ratings and Reviews
People power meets the open road in this amazing navigation app. Waze’s crowd-sourced alerts come from real drivers, not algorithms, delivering info you won’t see anywhere else to keep your commute flowing. The friendly interface and convenient detour routing really help the app shine, and its social-network integration make road trips with buddies a blast.
Very helpful, but it has tiny bugs
I love Waze, it is now my favorite GPS system that I use almost everyday when I commute to school and work. I really like the warning about cops who are camping out on the road, objects on the road and many other things. The one thing that bothers me is the "Plan a drive" section, I have used this feature many times and for the most part I didn't have issues. On the app it shows you any upcoming Planned drives you have before you have to leave, however it does not go away. I used to take my sister to a camp during the summer for about 2 weeks so I used this feature, and up to the present day it still comes up asking me to get ready to go to the camp when I never planned it. I have tried to put the option to "Delete this address" or just get rid of the notifications but somehow it just comes back after a few weeks again.
I tried to use this again and plan a drive last week, and it never told me what time to leave. I really like that feature because the app tells you what time is best to leave depending on the traffic at the time. However it is no longer working for me, I like this feature and I hope the developers can fix it.
I really love Waze, a lot of my friends claim how confusing the app looks when I drive and insist that I go back to the Apple GPS. But.. once you get used to it, you get hooked because of all the nice helpful features it has! Try it out, because you might just like it :)
Battery drain, several issues
The battery drain when I use Waze is unreal. I was at 43%, opened Waze & drove for about 12 minutes, decided to add a stop. I looked at my screen and the low battery 20% alert was up!! All of my background apps were closed, and there was no reason for my battery to plummet that quickly. Sometimes my app won’t show my icon but shows the “shadow” of where it’s supposed to be. Another issue is that it doesn’t show all routes. I know a certain route isn’t normally the fastest, but I also know my city’s traffic patterns and it won’t show it. Also, I’m in the top 1%, but how do I know when I’m getting close to losing that prestige? How do I see if the population is catching up to me? Finally, the fact that it doesn’t tell you whether your destination is on the left or right is so irritating and basic that I’m shocked it’s not a feature. I wish there was a feature where you could customize which “hazards” to voice prompt. For example, I couldn’t care less about a car on the shoulder ahead, and it’s annoying to have my music interrupted by that stupid hazard alert. But I would want to know if there’s a pothole ahead, an object in the road, or a police reported ahead. Create a way to narrow down the voice prompts! Why do the other Waze avatar icons around me never move? Speaking of Waze “people” icons, please come out with more options!
