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.
Best Navigation App Out There...
Waze would have to be one of the best navigation apps out there. Waze includes user edited maps, which being a map editor is a fairly well thought out and easy-to-use process once you get the hang of it. When driving with the app, Waze also alerts you to any incidents (Hazards, Accidents, Police, Speed Cameras etc.) but these can be customised in case you don't want to hear about speed cameras, for instance, you also see the non- static incidents in a bar showing your route and on the map itself. These incidents are reported by live users. There is also a request assistance feature, which I have personally never used and never seen anyone use but seems like a good idea nonetheless (on iPhone you can call an assistance service straight from the app). Overall, Waze is perfect for finding your way around traffic.
No right turns?
I have loved this app for quite a while and don’t mind the occasional quirk. Let me start with some positives. It’s not afraid of residential streets. It has great GPS when it can connect including speed with alerts, and speed detector/red light camera warnings, along with community warnings of potential hazards from pot holes to police. One thing that has happened a few times is instead of turning right at an intersection it takes you left to do a u-turn to get back on the road you were going. In the past several days it has taken that little quirk to a whole new level, taking me km’s (miles) out of my way to go simple routes, even just basically forward, often doubling, yes doubling! my trip time. My 18 min trip this morning took 45!! I’d like to list all the incomprehensible routes it has done to me over the past 9 days (that’s when it started acting up like this) but I probably won’t have enough characters in this review. I HAVE loved this app for quite a while, but the depression I am experiencing being very late to work the past 7 days isn’t worth it and driving me back to google maps. I’m being moderate with my rating as although I am highly unlikely to continue using it, it does have some very good features not available in google or apple maps.
