Need update for CarPlayPlease update the Waze maps for CarPlay. Thanks in advance..Version: 4.43

Generally good but can be slow & ads are distractingFirst, Waze has been generally more accurate than google or apple maps, so I would still recommend it over them. The distance from your location to a turn is much more accurate and doesn't make it look like it's significantly farther, which is a problem I've had on other apps. My two issues though: Speed to update route: when I've missed a turn, the app takes a LONG time to adjust the route, often telling me to take turns on roads I've already passed. Recently had a drive where I would pass a road and it would then tell me to turn. I've also had connectivity issues when in areas that still have strong phone service. Ads: Large pop up ads that dim the rest of the map. This is VERY distracting when driving - and very dangerous for drivers! I don't love the pop ups in general even though I like the warnings about cameras/traffic. This catches your eye while driving when you don't expect it and I can easily see someone getting distracted enough to crash. PLEASE change this or find a way to make it less distracting to drivers - it's simply irresponsible in the way it's implemented..Version: 4.58

Hate to delete this navigation appBut for a long time now, probably almost 2 years (I know, I’m faithful). I’ve realized this thing eats up SO much data. I run out of 2 gigs in less than a week on long drives. I love everything about it (especially hazardous objects on road and police), but it’s missing an important feature I’ve secretly been waiting for that google maps has and that’s the whole standby screen to save battery and phone from heating up. Many times Waze redirects me from traffic which was cool, but then I realized after a couple times, I actually lost time AND gas because of it due to stops and whatnot instead of just sitting in traffic. Not that it hasn’t helped at other times, but I’ve learned that most of the time the traffic it predicts has long dissipated (so much for “live”. Overall, it’s just been getting worse and I’ve thought to delete this app a long time ago if it weren’t for the social part, but then I realized all my friends haven’t touched it in forever and I only use it to share with my wife who doesn’t even realize I send her ETAs anyways till I’m already there and she calls me to ask me if I’ve arrived lol. It’s been Waze, but ultimately, my data is more important to me than the 80% ghost police notifications and my safe speed limit travels..Version: 4.34.1

Better than mostI’ve just begun to use the app. I like the fact that it alerts you when the police are near. It also notifies you if a car is on the shoulder of the road stopped. It has a background music feature which would be nicer if it included Apple Music or Pandora. The app warns about road work, traffic jams, it is nice. It is slow to sync with Bluetooth. I can sync my phone with my truck, yet the app does not speak through the Bluetooth connection. It is difficult to communicate while I’m giving and address for directions the first time. It is hard to hear because it will not use the iPhone speaker in the beginning either. I have to hold it up to my ear while giving the first address. Shortly after the first route begins it will use the Bluetooth connection. The graphics are much better than the iOS app and also Google Maps. The screen view is also better than other apps. Seems more intuitive than either of those GPS apps also. The app is slow to turn off the location services on my iPhone after I reached the destination. This concerns me that it might run down the iPhone battery prematurely. It does have a nice parking feature to locate your car later. Fix a couple of small things and it gets 5 stars from me. This is my new GPS app..Version: 4.45

Just WOW !!!The best GPS app by a mile..Version: iOS 4.29

Love this app. But...Honestly love this app I use it all the time. I do have some issues using it with Apple car play however. 1. Occasionally it won’t display the map and you have to pull over open the app on your phone, close the app on your phone and reopen it before the map will appear. This is annoying 2. Occasionally the app won’t know where you are, it’ll stay stuck at the location you started at and won’t ever update. Once again pull over, phone out, open app, close app and reopen it again. That’s also fairly annoying. But not nearly as annoying as the fact you don’t have the full report menu in car play. Surely you could make two lines of options or even a swipe across. This app is about helping others and you can’t do effectively that with the limited function on Apple car play. Honestly hoping the devs will see this and say they’re working on expanding the report options within car play because that would make this a 5 star. Hell I’d consider even paying a couple of quid one off for this it’s that important. Either way it’s a great app overall just a couple of niggles and oversights when it comes to Apple car play.Version: 4.73.2

Best thing since sliced breadTitle says it all.Version: 4.41.2

Best navigation app but some suggestionsI cannot rave about this app enough. It is has saved me countless of hours stuck in traffic. Can future updates please: - being able to select notifications on the map in overview. I want to be able to see where the hazard is and find a way to avoid it without scrolling and searching - some kind of function that generates a new route between point A and B that avoids hazards that have been logged. This would clear up traffic on major roads and cover more area. I like back roads.Version: 4.44

Love it with one exceptionI love this app for driving and especially the find a nearby carpark feature. But it has one big downside if you do not park at your final destination, it insists on directing you by road from the car park which is a problem in a one way system in an unfamiliar town at night in the pouring rain!! There is no option to finish the journey on foot against the traffic flow so I had to switch to another app to find the restaurant, it was less than 100m away but the app wanted me to walk half a mile round the one way system. Please consider developing walking and/or cycling features so you can do a mixed journey by switching modes. The app would then be perfect and I would happily buy a paid version that included walking/cycling routes..Version: iOS 4.29

Incredible resourceI am delighted by the services provided by the Waze app. On the first day I used it, it took me by previously unknown routes to a bakery to pick up a birthday treat for my dear daughter with 5 minutes to spare through rush hour traffic. The second time we used it we were at a huge airshow just outside of Portland OR and Waze saved the day by taking us back to Vancouver, WA on a very quiet and beautiful twisting country road through rolling farm land that ended up bringing us into Portland by way of the St. John's bridge. We were astonished to find that it took the same amount of time it would have taken us to go on the highway on a low traffic day. We were sold on it through these first initial encounters. BUT, my third use of it made me recognize how incredibly valuable and up to date it is it is when my destination was 2 blocks away from a bank robbery in progress and it diverted me from my normal route down narrow side streets where multitudes of cars were coming in the opposite direction but I seemed to be the only car going against the flow of traffic. Waze kept me safe and away from gunfire that was occurring just a block away from my final destination as bank robbers tried to make a getaway. Thanks Waze and thanks to all you Wazers that keep this app up to date so consistently. You rock!!!.Version: 4.41.2

Needs reworking, often isn’t showing quickest route, no options for route choicesI’ve used Waze for a while through a couple of changes & revisions. The settings now are minimal, settings for route choices & types are now non-existent. I find it awkward to be using Google Maps to find shortest/quickest route & use that to create path to destination that is actually quickest route. These options are needed, these choices are needed to make Waze the best GPS App. create.Version: 4.53

Doesn’t work well with iOS 12Update Oct 3, 2018- We’ve been using Waze for many years and have always loved it... until iOS 12. There has been so many issues with it freezing, crashing and interfering with the built in Bluetooth in our car. It will completely cut off the Bluetooth in the car making it completely useless. We deleted the app for a while because it just didn’t work at all and redone loaded it after some updates were released after iOS 12 was out for a while and that’s when the Bluetooth issues started, needless to say we deleted it again. I’m very disappointed, we used for every drive we took, even up to the grocery store 2 miles away. As you can see below from our first review we absolutely loved it... But sadly, not so much anymore. I really hope that you’re reading these reviews and doing something to fix these issues so we can start using it again! Since Google owns Waze I Would love to see some of Google Maps functions integrated into Waze. Other than that I have no complaints except the occasional outage, but we've been using it since it came out a few years ago and have loved it from the beginning!! Keep up the good work and get some of those google map features carried over to Waze!!.Version:

Very accurateVery accurate speed limits. Today in scholl zone, where normally speed limit is 30; the lights started to flash (2ph when when lights flash), and speed limit on waze changed to 20 at once. That was quite impressive. There is however one issue, or I should a possible improvement; if waze could introduce something like “slow down as lower speed limit approaching” that would be great coz when you are used to waze, you kinda start relying on it for your speed and speed limit and it’s lokely to enter into lower speed zone and then you have to brake to reduce your speed as you only get to know about reduced speed limit after you have passed already. Also if there was an option of HUD. Also if waze could introduce option to change the position and size of different things on screen like spped limit and speed etc..Version: 4.42

By far the best navigation app!Very useful, makes life easier and gets u there faster. Recomend it! One suggestion I can make it is having ability to more than one stop in between final destination ;).Version: 4.51.2

Awesome AppFirst of all, let me tell you that I have been using Navigation App’s in UK as a lorry driver. For lorry’s, Waze is not good due to the restrictions that apply to HGV and there’s nothing to help you set up a safe journey. On the other hand, it’s very useful and reliable for normal cars. The live traffic updates and the alerts inserted in the App by other users are normally very useful. Of course there are some false information inserted, by what can you expect? Not everyone is decent and it’s free. Congratulations to the Waze developers and i have one suggestion for future updates: try to insert a payment feature to stop the unnecessary adds that are popping up from time to time. It can become really annoying and in my case, I would rather pay for not having to deal with it. All together, great job and keep on doing what you doing..Version: 4.47

Waze has made my SatNav redundantI’ve been using Waze for a couple of years, initially alongside my Garmin but having found it is more responsive and accurate at reporting traffic situations, it has gradually made my Garmin redundant. I now use it with confidence to guide me at home in the UK and when driving abroad. I like that it is interactive, allowing me to report hazards and traffic to instantly warn others. There are things that I would improve, such as the ability to find the cheapest route, which would help when driving through countries with tolls. I would also like to specify my vehicle height and width so when towing my caravan, I can be sure I am not directed down inappropriate roads..Version: 4.43

Brilliant app built on user input. Some additional features would be goodI have been using Waze for a few years now and I absolutely love it. Travel time is generally accurate barring live incidents and the fact that it relies on user input means everything is real time. I wish it had the feature of lane choices that Google maps shows e.g. which lanes you’d need to take to go a specific direction, particularly in tunnels. Specifically, it would also be good to add non destination points en route by tapping as Waze tends to only take you by major roads which can sometimes be bypassed through the use of side lanes. All in all, a very handy app especially in cities with lots of users. Easy to find parking, fuel prices and stations on the way - would definitely recommend..Version: 4.51.2

Amazing, but, small improvements can be made...Waze is amazing, it is very accurate when telling you instructions, it tells you in advance and very accurately at the time when you need to do something. I also love the avoid motorways and dirt roads feature! However, one small issue is that the speedometer (speed limit symbol) is very small, and I end up having to put too much attention into my phone screen instead of the road if I am unaware of the speed limit. Would make the app a 5/5 if it would be larger or even let us have the option to increase sizes of the symbols on the screen..Version: 4.58

I’m glad I found this appAs a asphalt truck driver , I have to drive my 6wheel tipper truck and 6wheel tipper trailer into new housing developments, which are tight and deliver asphalt to make new road that arnt in map books and google maps yet, but maze is great and the alerts &hazzard warnings have been pretty spot on, I hope that the developers of this app can make it a bit more truck friendly, like width,length, weight ect as depending on all that we are sometimes restricted on where we can travel due to our permits, but thanx guys great app so far 👍.Version: 4.66

Few glitches- Overall an awesome app. Lately though it freezes on CarPlay unless my phone has the app open and showing. If I go to a different app on my phone, the Waze screen on CarPlay freezes again. - A few other times the Waze screen on CarPlay has been blank and I’ve had to close/reopen the app on my phone for it to restart. - I also haven’t been getting audio alerts even though I have sound turned on for alerts only and my volume is turned up. When I turn it on for direction sounds, it works for that but still not for alerts like “red light camera.” - When using the toggle switch in my Mazda CX-9 to report a hazard (touchscreen is disabled while driving), it oftentimes won’t let me report another hazard for a few minutes which is not helpful if there’s several hazards within a short distance or within 5 mins of each other. When reporting a hazard on the touchscreen in my Ford, there is no issue reporting several hazards in a row. - I wish more people used Waze in my community, it’s a great tool and very user friendly..Version: 4.69.2

Great App.Waze is a really useful navigation tool. It gives up to date information that reduces sitting the likelihood of sitting in heavy traffic and gives alternative routes. It is easy to use and receptive. This is the only navigation app I use now..Version: 4.21

Not just another GPS app.This app is 5/5. I honestly believe it makes me a safer driver, giving fair warning about traffic conditions and other things such as hazards on the road and police. I really like the intuitive rerouting when it detects traffic problems. I use it every day on my 1 hour commute and it varies my route regularly based on traffic conditions (but not so much that you don’t know where you are). If you drive a lot this app is an absolute must. It’s not just a regular GPS app by any measure..Version: 4.34.1

Waze has flaked out since last updateI have always been a huge fan of Waze and recommended it to others on a regular basis. I would have given it five stars. But in the last couple weeks, as it seems since the last update, it has lost its accuracy. It is taking me into traffic jams on a regular basis and redirecting me when there is no problem as I can see the freeway from the new route & it is traveling faster than I am. Warning of hazards has diminished in accuracy also. There has always been a problem with Waze sometimes not giving enough notice to get off the route when there is a problem I had resulting in me losing the opportunity to avoid the traffic jam. I have never understood this issue because when I’m on a route and have to make a turn ahead, Waze alerts me incessantly about the upcoming turn. This is particularly irritating when it’s a route that I drive all of the time. I thought Waze was supposed to learn about my usual routes. It also does not seem to learn that I have a preference for a different route in my neighborhood and is always trying to redirect me to its route which is not any faster and has some other shortcomings..Version: 4.43

Not maintaining media selection and location at start up in CarPlayI love Waze in its overall functionality, but it has gained a couple irritating issues over the last few updates. As CarPlay activates in my car, or any car for that matter, after I’ve used Waze as my last app, when Waze initializes it automatically starts playing from my phones media library. It doesn’t allow the current media selection to continue, including the radio. It’s the only app that has constantly done this for the last couple of months. All other non-music apps don’t interfere with what media is selected. I have to manually go and select that media source again and then come back to Waze. If I have another app going like Google maps, this doesn’t occur but when I select Waze it always does this. Also, Waze in CarPlay has trouble finding my location upon initiating. I have to go onto my phone and open the Waze app itself and then close it out in the task manager. Then, when I select it in CarPlay it works fine. Lastly, the speedometer now—just barely—partially shows at of the the top left corner of the display in CarPlay. Cannot not been seen usefully. I’ve got as far as uninstalling the app, then reinstalling it and signing back in and it still does all of these..Version: 4.70

Amazing appGreat app, always use it daily when driving out of my comfort zone or place i don’t know to well. Speed cameras are always on point and gives plenty of warnings. No complaints however I hope the developers add in motorway assist like how Garmins do it on there navigations and some over apps do it. Would really be the icing on top of the cake, I think this would finish the app nicely. Another problem is I wish you could create alerts on the roads you highlight and not just during the road you are driving on. For example I have to take the 2nd exit however it’s closed and forced to take the 1st o hope to just hold the road and mark alert like road closed. possibly to remove alerts you have placed. Other then that it’s amazing app I just hope they can implement the motorway lane assist.Version: 4.53.5

WazeReally enjoy this app specially with the Waze community feedback you’re able to have live feedback on traffic information specially where’s the cops 🤣.Version: 4.72

Best Navigation App for Roadtrips!The best navigation app you can use. Very useful, especially in a city where there is heaps of speed cameras and it can be confusing knowing the speed limit in some areas when you aren't used to a place. I love how you can see where police are, accidents and traffic. It also directs you around traffic which is awesome! This app is completely live as things are happening and people are reporting things. Definitely the best navigation app on the market. It has never gotten me lost and it has been very useful in those times when I haven't known the speed limit in an unknown area. Thank you Waze!.Version: 4.64

GPS don’t work unless phone unlockedI’ve had Waze for a while now and have loved it up until this point. I don’t know if it’s because I upgraded from the iPhone SE (original)to the new iPhone 11 or what but for some reason now unless I have Waze visible on the phone screen (not locked) the CarPlay map doesn’t refresh. So basically i used to jump in my car, connect my phone, open Waze on CarPlay and set my course and drive. NOW I can do the same, BUT if I want the map to refresh and be visible I have to ANNOYINGLY unlock my phone before I leave. I made sure it wasn’t a settings issue and went through every possible setting such as background app refresh and allowing the app to view my location always but nothing helped..Version: 4.61

Carplay supportHey please update the waze app for the apple carplay.Version: 4.43

Die-hard Wazer!!!Update: Waze updates have been good and the reporting process is improved and there are less steps to get to the actual reporting - yay! When you fix the default address estimation from interstate (literally I get suggestions for MI addresses, and I live in Alexandria VA!). Previous: I've recommended this app to dozens of friends and helped many download it to their smartphones and set it up for them. I can't say however that I'm very happy about the latest version of Waze. The GUI is not what it should be, the # of improvements is about equivalent to the # of detriments. It's hard to cancel an instruction once entered, the screen going from side to side is not user friendly. And reporting hazards is STILL a 2-3 step process!!!! There should be the option for active wazers to have a "visible police" button, "car on shoulder" button "construction" button and/or various traffic buttons of our choosing on the map page that we can report as we go. Also, PLEASE STOP SEARCHING THE ENTIRE MAP OF THE USA WHEN I'M OBVIOUSLY SEARCHING FOR AN ADDRESS IN MY LOCAL VICINITY. That was an obvious upgrade improvement you guys should have included. I would give you 5 stars or 10 or 20 because I love your app - but these improvements really need to happen ASAP. Keep up he awesomeness Waze!! Plus your Customer svc and responsiveness is great too!.Version: iOS 4.30

Tremendous!It’s beyond user friendly and all of the content is submitted by users. You can report literally any condition on the road. From downed power lines, major accidents, and all the way to road kill. You can also report a problem with the map (like I did) and someone will actually contact you as to what the map should look like. I reported a problem with the way my neighborhood was mapped because people kept getting lost. Within 24 hours, a map editor got in contact with me. I was even able to send him a video of how my neighborhood is mapped out. He took that video and compared it with satellite images and he fixed the issue. Now, people will be led to within five feet of my front door instead of across the street. You can also chat with other drivers. If there is an accident and you report it, you can add a message on it saying which lanes are blocked. Everyone can see that and it has also been known to help emergency responders get to an accident more efficiently. I’ve had it for nine months and I’m STILL discovering all of the stuff Waze can do. And the best part? It is 100% free..Version: 4.40

Used to love wazeI’ve had waze for several years now. I’ve seen a lot of changes and improvements with the app. Now I use waze all day everyday with my delivery job. I totally depend on waze helping me get somewhere in the most efficient way. Plus it is powered thru my work app so all I have to do in my work app is tap “navigate” and I don’t need to type in the address. It’s great. However for about the past month I have been running into major glitches. One is that I tap navigate and the app just spins, never pulling up the directions. I have to kill the app and start over. The next and most frustrating is that waze has taken me on some complete, major circles. I’m somewhat familiar with my city but need help in neighborhoods so I can USUALLY catch the runaround before I actually drive a complete 10 mile circle. I thought it was just like from over using the app or something so I switched to google maps. Didn’t care for the visuals of it BUT I absolutely love that on google at the end it will actually tell you your destination is either on the left or right. So to waze....please please add that feature to your app!.Version: 4.49.2

What an awesome GPS app!I came across this app by accident and I couldn't believe how great this is!! Very easy to use and quick to learn. AmaZingly intuitive and works great in New Zealand. Does all the things that normal gps devices do these days and more! I strongly recommend Waze to everyone! No more gps buying!.Version:

Great app but does have limitations for navigationOne of my friends put me onto Waze, I’ve been using it regularly as my driving app of choice. Communication with other Waze drivers about speed cameras, the main point about Waze I believe has literally saved me 100s of dollars and absolutely recommend it just for this. It also has a realistic speedometer, much more accurate than the one in my car so I’ll use it over the one in my actual car. However it does have its limitations which need to be addressed. The navigation/directions given are not great and it can take you on strange paths to get you where you need to go. The landmarks/house numbers can also be completely off so Waze is not reliable for directions. In summation Waze is good for a driving app that can show your real speed and alerts you to speed cameras quite reliably. Don’t use it for navigation however, you could end up in the wrong place..Version: 4.64

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..Version: 4.41.2

Impressed as a new user but 2 obvious issues ...I was impressed on first use yesterday to see that it connects via Bluetooth to my car speakers. The alerts are very good, even accurately showing a significant pothole on the M25 and a police vehicle ahead. The two issues for me which seem to be longstanding and unresolved are: 1) the Bluetooth audio announcements are truncated at the start, so ‘turn left into Acacia Avenue’ becomes ‘Acacia Avenue’ so you never hear the first words of the announcement somewhat important for a sat cab app! 2) Even if it wasn’t truncated it’s sometimes necessary to have the announcement repeated but there does not appear to be an option to do this. On the first issue I have seen it reported that playing music through Bluetooth whilst using Waze keeps the connection live so the full announcement can be heard. It didn’t work in my case but apparently has for other people. I’m also not sure if you can have the direction of travel pointing to the top of the screen, which is my preference. Will carry on using and may update this if I find any improvements to share..Version: 4.73.2

Excellent appSimple and lots of useful features.Version: 4.51.2

WazePerfect in city trafic, always take the best route, stop wondering....Version: iOS 4.29

Bugs with IOS CarPlay..Great app! - I’ve been getting a completely white screen on my car screen when I plug-in my phone to my car. I have to unplug it and plug it back a few times to get it to work. - If it tells me to take the service road and I don’t take it, it’s not sensitive enough to detect that I’m still on the highway and keeps giving me directions if I was on the service road. - GPS takes a while to kick in and just says "Proceed to Route". Even when data/cell signal is strong like when downtown a major city location. - If there is a fixed radar ahead, occasionally, I don’t get the voice/verbal alert. I only get the screen display! Keep up the great work, I use it all the time!.Version: 4.69.2

Great appI gave this 4 stars only because of how many times you have to press something to report it. I quick button or favorite would be great. Example: I live in a very rural area. I use this to mark deer on the roads for my coworkers that are behind me. I have to press 5 buttons in order to mark them. It's a dark and winding road with lots of deer so this is dangerous or it takes a while for me to get it marked. A quick button on the map screen for animals on the road would be fantastic. When I see a deer, I can just press that button and boom, it's done. Of course this could be a customization for people and maybe have a couple spots for quick buttons. That's just one that I use very often (10 to 15 times in 25 miles). I know others have their most frequent buttons they use. Two or three buttons across the bottom or left side would not hurt anything. You can even make them smaller like the size of the compass. P.S. if points are not accumulating, write a review and they will appear. I’ve done that twice. lol Waze, what is happening with the points? They have it updated in a while, again. Come on Waze, I live for these points! I live for these rankings. I need updated!!.Version: 4.36

Contented user for many years now.Have been on a road trip these past few days and experienced several app crashes mid-drive. Word to the wise, launching the app while driving down a mountain road or when doing 100 on the motorway, then trying to key in your destination - not advisable. Update: It’s January 2020, about six months since my comments about Waze crashing mid-drive up that mountain and unfortunately the problem is still there: I’m currently driving from Wellington to Tauranga and have experienced 3-5 crashes before hour three of said drive. Wanted to stay faithful but have had to switch to another app that’s more stable..Version: 4.58

Great app just needs some tweaksI would suggest this app to ANYONE driving whether you know the route or not. Forget the car satnav for a start, they are never up to date with road closures and the like. Waze is far superior for real-time variances in what might be your usual journey such as traffic, accidents, closures etc. The feature for planning a drive the night before to k ow your leave-time is amazing for work purposes. I would suggest to the developers that you remove the prompts to thumb-up or deny certain hazards as this is an unnecessary distraction. Also, remove the prompts which say x-incident is bad 5 miles ahead... how would anyone know what’s up ahead to confirm or deny it? Again, unnecessary and distracting. In summary, though, I wouldn’t use any other app and I use it every time I drive..Version: 4.60

Not always the best routeI’ve noticed that Waze does not always choose the best route. Not sure what your algorithm is but if often happens that I ignore the route suggested by Waze and continue driving while it recalculates only to discover the new suggested route (that I am now on) actually has a faster arrival time to my destination. I don’t understand why Waze didn’t choose that route in the first place. Also, as a feature, it would be nice to be able to turn off the auto-centering so that I can use the arrows to scroll through the map and see potential problem areas along the route. Right now it’s a real hassle to do this because Waze constantly re-centers the map to where the car is when I try to go beyond a certain pount..Version: 4.57

Incredibly helpful, an essential app if you drive a lotAs someone who drives about 1000 km each weekend for work, Waze’s hazard and traffic reports and everything is a lifesaver. However there are a couple suggestions I’d like to propose that would improve things greatly: - SCHOOL ZONES! In Canada, we have a lot of time based school zones and if we could report school zones and their times on Waze and there be a 24 hours alert plus speed limit decrease within the times, it would be very helpful and make school/playground zones a little bit safer. - Reporting hazards on the other side of the road - Fuel prices: there should be an option to choose which fuel stations and fuel grades you prefer/use, and show those on the map so you can easily compare prices or find your nearest Petro Can for example. This would probably also encourage people to report fuel prices more :).Version: 4.69

Game-changerImpossible for me to explain just how valuable this App is to me. All-in-one package that compliments my day seamlessly. I hook it up to my in-car multimedia and that’s me content I’m not wasting any driving time doing various drop offs/collections around London and south-east. Directions, speed camera alerts and local places to eat if you so decide. I didn’t use to fully trust it but after “ going my own way” and never beating Waze by more than a minute or so (on a 30 min drive) and often losing by considerably more it now has my complete confidence. I also take part in the Waze community by alerting other Waze-users to road closures/Police speed traps etc. To the good people of Waze, I salute you ✅..Version: 4.64

Now works on CarPlay!!Finally downloaded the new update and works with my CarPlay! Works flawlessly. I know cars have speedometers but it would be nice if it shows the speed and if you are going too fast like it does if I weren’t using CarPlay..Version: 4.43.4

No customer support at allCustomer support is an automated email feeling you to refer to the troubleshoot section. A section that I have read so often looking for me resolution, that I have now memorized it! Simple issue - I lost my password. Password reset help allows me to put in my email address. But I do not receive any email to reset the password (tried numerous times). So now I think that I may never have registered my email on Waze. And my only option is try to create a whole new profile. When creating a new profile, I want to register my email (which I don’t think I did in the initial profile since I am not getting the password reset email etc). When I try to register my email in the NEW profile I created, Waze won’t allow it and says ‘email already exists’. So if the email already exists, why doesn’t Waze send me the email to reset my password on the old account to which I lost the password? IF MY EMAIL IS ALREADY REGISTERED WITH WAZE, WHY WON’T WAZE SEND ME A RESET PASSWORD EMAIL? OR ALLOW ME TO SET UP A NEW ACCOUNT. I have only one email address!!! If it is in use on the old account that I locked myself out of, either allow me to reset the old account or allow me to set up my new account with my email address. Simple!! Why is it so difficult?.Version: 4.37

Apple Music supportLove this app but every time I exit out of this app, or swipe up to change songs, it stops my music for a moment which is really annoying. (I use Apple Music).Version: 4.39.2

GreatBetter navigation than Siri when driving around in unfamiliar places. Siri sends me on wild goose chase but this app is way better..Version: 4.65.2

CarPlay Mobile Camera ReportingThis is by far the best navigating app around, paid or unpaid, and I have been using for many many years. However, suggestion: there absolutely needs to be the option to report mobile speed cameras whilst using in CarPlay mode. By default mobile speed cameras are reported as ‘Police’, when they are not. Also, the ability to pin a police report (not in CarPlay mode ), rather than just sending a report from your exact location. For example if you drive past an RBT setup that you can see on another road nearby, but not driving directly through it, or one on the other side of the road, one can’t accurately report. Thanks, and keep up the good work Waze! 👍🏻😊.Version: 4.54.1

A great app - with one fault remainingThis is (almost always) the only navigation app you will need. I use it every time I go driving, even where I know the roads well, due to the way it warns of hazards and I can warn others. The navigation is great around the city and, with the minor point that it often picks the wrong side of a property to go to, it does well. The time estimates are also generally spot on, so the warnings you need to leave are given in good time. The recent addition of lane navigation almost completes the job. The problem is when you go out of the city - and out of mobile (cellular) phone coverage. Do that and the navigation is suddenly terrible. Even if your trip includes a section that is out of mobile range the app will get your trip times wrong and will send you a long way out of your way to get where you are trying to go, sometimes costing hours. I’m not sure why, but it happens. A lot. If you are going out of phone range then use Google Maps. Other than that, use this..Version: 4.69.2

Great appHad been happy with this app until an update with my iOS. Now crashes EVERY time and I can’t use it. No way of contacting except through the app which, it tells me, isn’t working coz there’s something wrong with my connection. Interesting I don’t have that problem with any other app. Pity, I found it the best Navi app but back to google for me. Really happy with this app. Took a bit for a not so tech savvy chook to get used to but way better than all the other gps apps I've used before..Version: iOS 4.33

Don’t Leave Home Without ItThis app has saved me so many times. I absolutely love it. I use it constantly, mainly because it alerts me to traffic and cops, but also because it has shown me shorter ways to places I go to all the time (and thought I knew the best route there). I only have two complaints. The map change suggestion feature is totally useless. There’s a road near me that’s a private lane and ends at one curve of an s-curve. Waze always tells me to use this road for 100 feet, then get back on the main road. No, the private lane ENDS at the main road! I’ve tried changing this a dozen times, and it never gets changed (once it was actually, but a week later it was back). I’ve learned to ignore it, but I feel sorry for tourists because they get confused (I can tell they’re using Waze when I’m behind them because they’ll slow down and sometimes stop, which is really annoying). My other complaint is that I can’t tell it to remember certain routes. From my house, there are two ways to the county road. They’re both the same distance and about the same driving time. The difference is that the one Waze always tells me to use is single lane partway, very narrow the rest of the way, and has a lot of hidden entrances and blind hills and curves. I’d much rather take the safer way. If Waze finds a way to fix these two things, I’d give it 5 stars.Version: 4.45

AwazingAfter missing my turn off for the forth time and ending up on Queen St instead of Mt Eden I almost impulse purchased one of the $100 GPS apps. Boy am I glad I found Waze instead! The little app has got me all over the North Island of New Zealand. It works with iTunes so my music plays, and when a direction announcement is needed Waze speaks up and the the music resumes. Awazing'.Version: 3.2.2

GreatOne feature I wish with was, would be the option to adjust the route based on left and right turns. Often I have found it takes me on a route with many right turns, where a route with more left turns would be quicker based on the way traffic moves. I am in a country that drives on the left hand side, and I assume the app was designed for those that drive on the right. Small thing, but could drastically reduce the time it takes in many cases. Otherwise, fantastic..Version: 4.2.0

Second best to Google mapsI've extensively used Google maps, Waze, Here, Tom Tom and few others on roads I know and often two apps at the same time. From all I would say that Waze is the closest to perfection when it comes to traffic avoidance right after Google maps, but it allows to see how speed and current speed limit which Google maps does not have. What I'm missing is lane turn like on Google and more coherent colours like TomTom uses. I can't understand how someone using TomTom can complain about Waze when TT "live traffic" is based on the traffic control so any disruptions are usually delayed. I guess that TT still does not support voice control like Waze or Google and Waze allows to take reports without touching the phone..Version: 4.37

Fantastic appSo good, save me so many time from getting speeding ticket😂🤪. Thanks sexy WAZE.Version: 4.60

Great idea, poor executionThis app is great I won’t lie. The reports are very handy and the traffic avoidance is lifesaving in comparison to using google maps or car built in navigation. But over the years Waze still has many issues that haven’t been fixed yet. 1. Why does finding a route take so long to calculate. Even small routes and even when I have a perfect internet connection. 2. Why is reporting an incident on Waze so hard to do while driving. It’s encouraging you to touch your phone more with small buttons and hard to read text and would much prefer for voice commands and bigger more friendly user texts and buttons. 3. Traffic shows up less on maps than it used to. 4. Default voice sounds very robotic (Kate) and it seems like this is a very recent issue. 5. No heads up option for navigation. 6. Crashes and fails a lot more time than google maps and apple maps. Happened on all our devices with Waze. But apart from these issues the app is probably one of the best navigation apps..Version: 4.71.2


Needs customizationI’ve seen so many comments here and elsewhere on the web asking for the ability to move the speedometer. I wish you would listen to this simple request.Version: 4.60

Fantastic appEasy to use, great accuracy.Version: 4.36

Was GREAT....Now it doesn’t work 😖I had been using Waze for about a year and LOVED IT!! But since the most recent IOS update, it continually is “searching for GPS” and looking for language (I still speak English 😉). I went to my cellphone provider, then Apple, and logged off of Waze to see if the app would reset itself and be fixed. This didn’t work. I even did a total reset of my phone, and nothing worked on Waze and Google (who owns Waze). I then contacted Waze, but got nothing but constant/obvious automated answers back that stated things to do that I already started I HAD ALREADY DONE and listed in my email. This is upsetting since other competing GPS apps work on my phone, so it’s not anything on my end. After a couple of weeks, I did a web search to see if others had issues or could help me. Interestingly enough, I found out I am in good company, sadly. Please Waze/Google, it would be greatly appreciated if you could actually get this obvious bug fixed. Your app was wonderful, but I’m sadly happy to switch to another app to at least get me to places. No, the other apps don't have the accident, police, or other very helpful perks. I just can’t stand diving “approximately” or now the map keeps me at the beginning location and has no idea that I have already driven and arrived at my destination. Beyond frustrating. Again, please send out a fix! 🔨.Version: 4.34.1

Good app, apart from!On my iPhone XS Max, in landscape mode the screen goes white and does not allow me to do anything, this happens on occasions and has caused me to have to use google maps instead of WAZE on a couple of occasions. I love this navigation software, it’s great, it’s accurate, it’s reliable, your alerted by almost all of the speed cameras in the country, where police sit ( if been reported ), where accidents or roads works have occurred, it’s a great app, apart from the recent issue that started occurring. I use this app every time I jump in the car, most the time it’s not even set to a destination, it’s just on so I can collect miles ( points ), and see where any potential traffic/roadworks are. Super helpful, I have rated a 4 star, will change to 5* when the issue with the white screen is sorted. Thanks WAZE!!.Version: 4.46.2

Great AppThis is by far the best map app I have used..Version: 4.73.2

Elegant, powerful turn by turn GPSWith such a polished user interface, and generally high quality user experience, I'm constantly amazed this is a free product. Unless you absolutely need offline maps and totally accurate routing, Waze is an excellent solution..Version: 3.2.2

Makes other popular apps look like a childWould love to see them succeed even more. Have been using it for a while now and never been disappointed. Love the motorcycle feature and many others that Google Maps or Apple Maps do not have yet. Only change I could suggest is the user interface could have been more crisper and cleaner and lacks the premium feel but that’s no reason to lose any star so full 5 stars for the app as it is..Version: 4.73

Mr.Awesome! 👍🏻.Version: iOS 4.29

The coolest App to discover a stocker who is tapped into you by staying closeI love this app simply because of his style and I like way to look at our worsening traffic situation all across or length it's no longer our grandparents freeway gone are the days of leisurely drive and pleasant afternoon behind the wheel now driving Siri is business and not to be left that at all so Waze shows it other ways to use this app Multi platform use an informational stack to assist with around you at all times need to come to that oh my by that I mean the dreaded stocker the one who just won't leave you alone and must bother you in any which way they can interesting that avatars have now become avatars maybe that's a new word car the tatf. but for later next line recently I've had that displeasure of finding that I to warrant a sucker and I only found out because Waze showed me that my stocker was never far behind have a virgin ever prime ever trying to communicate the Daniel benign idiocy of their plate In stocking me it showed me how to stock them and soon as you might imagine the police were involved and well wouldn't you know it my stocker became a shocker who ended up in the slammer known as the locker and there you have it my happy story brought to you by the way thank you Stucker free.Version: 4.55.1

Apple car playL’app crash souvent ou bug sur Apple car play.Version: 4.74

5 starI'm sure that most people from all over the world using this app it does help you to avoid traffic takes you through alternative route but there is only one disadvantage of is app on the roundabouts especially the big ones sometimes map updates very slow making you take a wrong exit or in the junctions or narrow side roads on both directions to the left or to the right same thing sometimes it makes you miss the turn but other than that it's a very handy and straightforward app i hope that they will fix this small problem. Thanks for waze ;).Version: iOS 4.32

Great but....This is a great app but I would like it if you can instruct it to avoid width restrictions. Some of us have cars that are too wide to pass through these. So it would be good if you could ask waze to route you through a way that avoids these restrictions even if it does add time to the arrival time. Also would be good to have a option where you can type in departure and arrival destinations to check the distance and miles and how long it would take to go form point a to b. 3rd would be nice to have a pin drop on a random place on the map and ask waze to direct you there incase you don’t have a postcode or address to input you can manually search for it on the map and drop a pin then hit go. If you add these it will make it a really nice app..Version: iOS 4.33

Using Waze for 6 years.I’ve been using Waze for about 6 years and there have been a lot of great improvements in that time. I only have a few gripes about it atm. First off it’s kinda annoying when it automatically navigates you to a location like your home. I do not have a normal commute being a contractor. So I head home at different times in the day. So what happens when I’m entering a new address to drive to it interrupts me when I’m still punching the address in. At times I’ve been mistaken when the address I just entered was where I was heading, when in reality it had already decided I wanted to go home. I wish this function was optional! The second issue is waze will take you to the completely wrong location because it didn’t find the address you where looking for so it will say let’s go and when you get close it’s just the street and not a house number. Or it will add a NE at the end without you noticing it. I’ve spent a lot of time having to navigate to the right address using google or Apple maps. But I continue to use waze because it is helpful in the city getting around wrecks and jams! P.S. it destroys your battery life! Absolute must to have it charging while navigating..Version: 4.43

Sudden app crashes while driving.I’ve been a waze user for almost 2 years now, and the last time I used this app was earlier today on my way to the airport. The app just suddenly stops and goes back to my home screen. Happened to me like 3 or 4 times while I was driving on the motorway, good thing my wife was there with me, so she could start and setup waze again. It’s just worrying though, especially if you’re driving all alone and/or when doing long drives by yourself as well. App is great and all, but it’s just these bugs/issues recently, hope it doesn’t get worse. Please have this fixed..Version: iOS 4.33

Best navigation app by farLoving the new update to allow waze to work with apple car play on my Skoda. I used to have my phone in a mount like an Uber driver and now it goes through the infotainment screen on the centre console which is great. One problem is that it doesn’t allow you to have access to the map to report road closures etc and so I would have to disconnect the phone ( passenger of course ;) ) and then stop the car and use the road closure button for the road ahead. Waze should allow you to report road closures based on where you have driven when you finish your journey in the case. I also miss the level up indicators by points which used to be in scoreboard. Now you don’t know how far you have to go to get a new status.Version: 4.43.4

Most useful but some issuesIt is the most useful of the navigation apps because it uses the most sources for information and does a great job helping me navigate. Directions are given in a way to help locate the turn or offramp. Other apps often change suddenly into step-by-step directions or some form that I do not want to see. Waze stays consistent in the format of the split. Waze has a number of notifications about things in the road. These are good but also have weaknesses. It is hard to report that something was not accurate. At the point it is supposed to be there the option to indicate it was incorrect goes away. This option should remain for 2 to 400 feet after the symbol location. Most hazard reports are inaccurate. Most police reports are incorrect. This is frustrating because it such a good idea but the tool doesn’t really allow for good reporting. Stopped vehicle reports do not indicate in lane or side of road so they are usually pointless viewings of vehicles stopped somewhere having no affect on traffic. There is a great feature to go later on the time this feature cannot be used for some reason I will choose directions to the airport. Half the time I can choose go later and half the time for the same trip I cannot. I know the data is there. But for some reason the feature just vanishes. Make it easier to report..Version: 4.39

Definitely the bestThis app gets me everywhere I need to go. I use it daily for almost every trip. I have Apple Carplay and all I have to do is say, "Take me to ______ using Waze" and it launches and starts to give directions which is perfect for when you're already driving and need to head somewhere else on the fly. I have 2 minor complaints. 1) Waze tends to learn my routine and automatically programs itself to take me where it thinks I needs to go. Normally this is great but there's been times when I've asked to go elsewhere and it's logic had overridden my request. For instance, I asked to go to somewhere on a vacation day and it started directing me to work. No fun!! Lol. 2) I love using the voices. Cookie Monster is great. But, there are times when you don't want the interruption, just the onscreen directions. I wish that the onscreen mute button was simply on/off. Instead it takes you to a new menu to select alerts only or to mute everything. I've NEVER wanted alerts only. If anything I'd want the opposite but would much prefer a simple mute/unmute function. That way I don't have to have my eyes off the road to mute/unmute. Please correct this!! Otherwise though, it's the only navigation I use..Version: 4.51.3

Cookie!!On a whim, we decided to let Cookie Monster be our navigator. We laughed our butts off when he reported police up ahead, and if they’d like a cookie. It’s a little weird that he will mention kilometers and miles in his descriptions. The app is iffy on whether or not you can hear navigation over the music. I’d like for my music to be turned down a bit, instead of the directions competing with my music. Also, if I’m on alerts only, I’d like to know if there’s a faster route or ways to avoid a traffic accident on my route, since I’m not watching my app while driving. I would like to see an update where it tells you which lane you’ll need to be in, either for getting off the highway or to prepare for future turns. Like get in the right of the two left turn lanes because you’re going to turn right pretty quick after that. And also, if you sync your calendar to Waze, there should be an option to say “I want to be at my appointments 15 minutes early” so you don’t have to adjust your calendar entry and try to remember what time your appointment actually is. Small stuff, but I think it’d be helpful..Version: 4.51.2

Amazing maps, just missing some features.Waze is a fantastic application. The design, the idea, the execution. Everything is fantastic. The community aspect is brilliant and I love contributing and assisting others. My only gripes are the lack of the following features: - No current speed shown when using Apple Carplay. - No "ok Waze" support when using Apple Carplay (hey Siri still works) - I would like to be able to see a list of my current reports/past reports (more detailed review) - Improved live tracking of other wazers. - No report button for speed cameras on Apple Carplay (only police available from the quick menu - can report when using just phone also via ok Waze if it worked when plugged in to Apple Carplay) Overall this app is probably the best GPS/map I've ever used and the community is huge. There is always people keeping things updated and reporting issues and hazards. I would happily pay for this app if it wasn't free. But I'm glad it is. Thanks Waze, sounds clichè but you've changed the way I drive..Version: 4.46.2

Essential Nav App with faultsWaze is undoubtedly an essential navigation app which I use alongside some others like Google Maps and Apple Maps (Apple Maps has excellent up to date road data, because it’s powered by TomTom road data). In ways, Waze an be the better navigation app being able to show sudden obstructions and Road Works popping up out of the blue, because users can report this on the fly. It’s some of the little faults however that can drive (pun not intended) the user to frustration. The various volume outputs are a real problem. I set only the Notifications because I want to have an alert sound for traffic cameras, obstructions, roadworks, speed alerts, etc. but not for normal turn by turn navigation. However, my experience is:- 1. When entering a destination by voice entry, the voice confirmation feedback for the destination address is so low that you can’t hear it. It appears to only come from the iPhone’s “in call normal ear-speaker” which you only hear if putting the handset to your ear and NOT the iPhone’s own handsfree loudspeaker mode. Naturally the iPhone is mounted on the dash and your ears are approx half a metre away. 2. In stark contrast to number “1.” above, audio alerts are very loud and clear, even to the point of making you jump if you weren’t expecting it. I’m not too sure if audio alerts are using the iPhone’s ringer volume level or media volume level..Version: 4.57

Slipping a littleMust say initially I was blown away by waze. And it still is a great option. Being crowd based it is so live it is unmatched. However the last few releases months I’m not so sure. It’s missing closed roads and has me taking dirt road alternatives at 2am when the motor ways are closed for one junction instead of the signed diversions I presume as the 60mph limit seems faster. But not at 2am in my vauxhall Meriva. Not too mention of late it can’t find routes between Enfield and Liverpool yesterday morning and now this afternoon trying to head back. I find myself having google open for routes and using waze as I prefer the UI and map look. Still when working. I couldn’t recommend enough over alternatives!.Version: 4.36

Awesome appI have always used the app but I thing it will be better if the pop ups asking to let others when you will arrive gets remove. There are quite annoying and distracting. Love the fact it can now be used with CarPlay and understand this is the first version of it and need some improvements. My suggestion is to check out the speed limit location since it gets cover behind the arrows that advice when a turn needs to be done. Or at least it happens in my Vitara 2017..Version:

Amazing functionality and structure, but little theme integrationThis app is fantastic - it's so simple and convenient. It's what I would describe as a real plug-and-play solution for any type of driver who wishes to contribute to the community, or simply know how fast you're going on Jones Ave. I believe its biggest strength is how just leaving the app on helps other users, along with the ability to report events and sightings so easily. My only nag would be that there is little to no iOS theme integration - admittedly this makes the app unique and gives it character. Either way, the concept here was spot on, and the execution was fantastic..Version: 3.9.1

App crashes when i connect to my carplayI love waze for so many reasons! but recently almost everytime i load a route the app completely crashes if it’s connected to my carplay. hopefully this can be remedied soon!.Version: 4.69.2

Great app but has definite shortcomings.Waze is my #1 choice for GPS. Live traffic updates, being able to edit traffic conditions on the fly to give a more accurate commute, and sharing routes and eta’s are great features. I do hope they integrate voice commands with Siri so we can say things like “Hey Waze, drop a stopped vehicle pin.” While we are driving so interaction becomes handsfree and safer. I gave 3 stars because there have been repeated issues with the app and service saying “No GPS available.” I have tried rebooting, deleting & reinstalling, and clearing the app cache on my phone as well as making sure iOS and the app are updated constantly. But the occurrence does not appear to be linked to hardware failure unless it is something inherent to the 8s. Google and Apple maps do not have any issues when this occurs so I’m at a loss as to what causes the issues with Waze. This occurs for about a 8-12 hours once a day, once or twice a month. Not the end of the world but heavily inconvenient when you regularly use the service for your GPS navigation (and it’s a great service) and you are on the road daily for 4-6 hours at a time it is a problem. If they could fix this problem and integrate voice commands for pin drops, this would be a hands down 5 Star app. Hopefully I’ll get some feedback and can continue to use the service..Version: 4.38.1

Great appLove love love it!.Version: iOS 4.29

Better than the old CB days.Waze is a user based traffic information app. It does rely upon users to report traffic conditions, construction, accidents and police. As a user passes by a reported problem, he can say Thank You, indicating the condition exists, or No longer There, indicating it has been cleared. There are two things I’d like to see changed: 1) allow the time to respond to the condition to last longer. Sometimes, the actual condition is at a slightly different place due to the time lag between where the incident is and when it was actually reported. and 2) when reporting police, it would be nice to know if the police is moving or stationary. If moving, the radius for notification should be extended and the time to clearing shortened, as a moving car will not remain in its position very long. If stationary, then notification can remain as it currently is. If police is moving, it would also be nice to know which direction and then adjust notifications accordingly. Note these are suggestions and not complaints. This is a great app and a must have for any driver. It also has a pretty good navigation system. But if you select another route than it gives you, it is slow to recalculate and sometimes requires stopping the navigation and then restarting it to get the alternate route..Version: 4.46.1

CarPlayAwesome app, but the eta and direction box on CarPlay covered the picture for the speed limit for the road your on.Version: 4.44

Annoying additionsOverall, a good app; however, lately advertising symbols continue to populate the map. Driving past an area that has a lot of fast food places will populate the map with advertisers such that it actually crowds the map. Like ai need more ads. It just makes the map look way too busy when you’re trying to glance over to check out where you are in your route. Additionally, and just as annoying is that they have added your speed to the map which turns red even if you’re exceeding the speed limit by 1mph. If that’s not already enough to annoy someone, every few seconds a large red speed limit flashes alerting the driver they are exceeding the speed limit. It’s completely annoying! There are few if any drivers on my commute that adhere to the speed limit and doing so may put you at risk of getting rear ended considering most are driving at least 15mph over. The point being is that this sign flashes continuously every few seconds during one’s commute and is annoying especially seeing it for well over an hour every day. I don’t need this app to be a babysitter alerting me constantly that I’m exceeding the speed limit. I am considering switching back to Google maps..Version: 4.51.2

No accident avoidance in planningIt’s been multiple times now that it had used a route where an accident has occurred and was reported. Times are not reflected for the delay with the accident and no alternative route is offered or used. I’ve sat in traffic wondering what the hold up is only to look ahead on the screen manually and see an accident is reported but the app doesn’t alert me or offer new routes. I’ve done this manually and had to shut it off as it tried to put me back on my route WHERE THERES AN ACCIDENT holding up traffic! Fix this and it would get a 5-star rating..Version: 4.57

Brilliant but here are some ideas for update...If only it could tell you to change lanes or to stay in your lane eg. it gets confusing when you're driving in a city with many lanes & overamps as the lanes aren't always clearly sign marked with their actual street name and often are given their motorway name. This could be different in other cities though this was the case in Brisbane CBD, Australia..Version: 3.7.2

Waze wins hands downWaze the App for directions around the world is brilliant. Great directions but better still the advisory aspects warning of hazards, traffic or even police speed traps works like a dream. The best I've used and I'm just back from North and Central America where it always found the tight Waze to go. Highly recommended..Version: 4.6.0

Love my WazeI love waze especially when doing long distance driving. I notice less updates lately from users in Auckland which makes it less effective which is a shame as it has been my constant driving companion for over 3 years now.Version: 4.47.3

Apple Car Play issuesGreat app for navigation, finding those nasty speed camera’s and potential delays etc. However recently when used through Apple Car Play, I find that a warning message will jump to the top of the screen which covers the upcoming directions and cannot be cleared. Even when disconnecting and reconnecting, it happens again within 5 minutes and is quite frustrating. This has only been occurring for the last couple of weeks - prior to that it worked perfectly ! Not sure if this is an app issue or a compatibility issue with my car (67 plate Kia Sportage). Otherwise would be 5 stars all day long.Version: 4.60

AmazingDownloaded this app for my new van a Peugeot, works very well and has so much info you wouldn’t believe it. My old satnav was so out of date it thought I was driving across fields many times, this app even has a roundabout and bypass that is still being built near me and not yet open. I also like the fact that it even has temporary speed cameras on it and points out bridges where speed camera vans often stop. The first time I used it my wife wanted to go to Ikea so I started typing the name in my phone, I got as far as Ik and the address came up on my dash, it also knew the A5 was closed at Towcester. Mick Waterfield..Version: 4.44

Needs bug fixesWaze is a great app but it’s Car Play integration needs some work. There are 2 major problems with using waze with car play which unfortunately means I’ll have to use google maps for now. Firstly, during navigation if car play disconnects for any reason and then reconnects waze does not show directions. Navigation continues and you can view directions from the phone screen but on the HUD in the car no directions are shown. So far the only way to fix this is to stop navigation and then restart the journey. When directions are shown however the directions cover the speed limit icon which is a very useful feature and an asset to car play..Version:

Great AppNZ-based user, so some maps limited outside major population centres, but works really well. Speed trap alerts seem to have disappeared from the latest version (is this beacuse of Apple's new policy or is it a bug?). Some advice seems strange, again possibly because of a low volume of users in NZ, but if you decide you know better it re-routes you automatically based on your decision, it doesn't instruct you to "do a legal U-turn" or say "off route" as some other navigation aids do..Version:

Good all round app, but getting directions isn’t always shortest route possibleI’ve used this app for more than a year or two, I enjoy the features it offers like traffic awareness and a point system, but I have realised that when I place my destination the app does not always offer the closest and shortest route, and when I go against its other route options which only vary by 1 street difference, I knock off about 6 minutes off my trip until I go far enough that it re routes and finds my route. I enjoy this app when it works, but unfortunately I think there might be something wrong with the route generator.Version: 4.49

OutstandingFor a free to use satellite navigation tool this app is outstanding. It’s compatibility with other systems like what3words make it even better. I rated it has five stars because four would not be good enough, but there is one slight glitch I found and may just be me and not the app itself. I’m a professional driver and use Waze as my primary choice for work but I found when using Apple CarPlay and connecting to the car system the automatic function for day or night colours does not work, you need to manually switch between day and night, which can be difficult if you’re driving at the time. As I never use Waze in a handheld mode I could not tell you if this glitch still works this way we’re not connected to a car.Version: 4.66

Love it & Hate it all at the same time.I have been using Waze for about a month now I commute Just over 1000 miles a week. I really like that many people are out there using it and that you get vital information like a car’s coming up on the shoulder, objects in the road and where the police are camping at. The only problem I have with Waze I’d like to see some changes is that there are too many choices to make when reporting information, for example if I want to report a car on the side of the road I have to hit four different selections before my information is sent meanwhile I’m trying to look at the screen to find a small button and not paying attention to what is on the road. Reporting information needs to be simplified for the driver no more than two clicks to report a hazard something along the lines of the first click hazard second click “car on shoulder” or “car in lane” or “object in lane”. Decision making buttons need to be a little larger like when you’re confirming a hazard on the road is it still there yes or no the buttons are too small and I often miss them and not able to confirm the information information. May be a few seconds before you approach the hazard two large buttons could pop up and simply confirm yes or no is it there. I will say this I do enjoy using it and it is much better than Google maps or other navigation apps out there..Version: 4.67

Vacation Travel SOSDue to a Cat 5 Hurricane Irma and Cat 4 Jose which caused destruction and total havoc in the Caribbean our well-planned trip to Grenada (a year in the making) was cancelled after 3 hrs. of wishful thinking and 2 wks. of monitoring NOAA and the weather channel several times a day. With our flight cancelled and at JFK hrs from home we decided to just turn in our tickets for an impromptu trip to San Francisco which was on our bucket list. We flew in without any preparation more than finding a last minute deal on a downtown hotel for 2 nites. We rented a car once we spent a couple of days in San Francisco. If not for my WAZ app we would not have been able to do half of what we did! It got us to our 2nd location a rental outside of San Francisco and on time! It took us to Big Sur via Rte 1, all around Napa Valley, and adventures that took us to views of the Golden Gate Bridge that only locals get to see. With the app we were able to find our way to impromptu routes that took us 2500 ft to an observation tower that blew our minds. The app regularly saved us from excruciating California traffic jams by re-routing us and is amazingly good at time estimations. We are most appreciative for this app. Thank you for helping us explore gorgeous Northern California..Version: iOS 4.29

Love itIt has saved me hours on travel time. However it doesn’t always know if I am in the express lanes or collectors..Version: 4.70

WAZE is my road buddy.I really like the WAZE app. I use it all the time. It is great for turn by turn audio directions that keeps me hands free. The learning curve is fairly easy and the app features and interface have been consistent which is great because having to learn new and improved stuff while actually driving isn’t the best. I frequently drive up and down the whole west coast and WAZE is a lifesaver for re-routing around traffic jams and knowing what the speed limit is in an area as they seem to change a lot. ** The reporting system could be streamlined a little to make it easier to report the most common incidents on the home screen and the detailed hazard reports do not allow for some common issues: people on side of road, weather issues that impact safety/visibility like severe rain/lightning/ road ice and to easily report changes in speed limit signs. It would also be nice to be able to mark a hazard location when “out of signal” that would pop up when reconnected. **We really enjoy the occasional “guest” reporting voices ( Star Wars, Cars, Coke Santa) it would be fun to do the same and have some seasonal options with the Wazer profile avatars too! Overall WAZE is my road buddy and is my go to app. for driving directions..Version: 4.42

Great but listen to the usersI’ve been using this app for about a year now and love it in my local areas. However like a lot of people when navigating new areas it’s hard to use, with last second route changes, no lane warnings, and the crashes on apple CarPlay it makes it a little more difficult to use. If those problems could be addressed then Waze would be a solid 5/5. I love that I’m told my speed and speed zones, camera/police warnings, and the user based information to get the fastest real-time road conditions. Those are super helpful features and make peakhour much less of a headache..Version: 4.52

Avoid traffic via alternate routesThis app is great for finding alternate routes. It uses up my battery though. Please give an option to have It search for my location only when I am using the app. When I close the app, it doesn't need to keep track of where I am anymore as I am likely not driving. I find that this app gets me places more quickly while avoiding traffic. It needs a little more fine tuning, as it put me in a no outlet street very close to the back end of my destination. I had to drive away from that point and the-input the address to get to the front end, but that worked. It was beneficial that I already had a sense of what the place should look like. I like that it recognizes "streets" in some major parking lots. That was a pleasant surprise. :) I wish there were a way for it to show how much time I save by going the alternate route versus the normal highways. UPDATE & REQUEST: Yay! My battery lasts a lot longer now. Thank you for addressing this issue. It would be great if there were a button to notify others when there is a train crossing (and recommend alternate route or option to wait for train) and the same with drawbridges up (I live in a city of bridges so this is quite valuable info and is not the same as slow traffic)..Version: 4.52.5

Very good app but be carefulVery good navigation app and my favourite out of the available options at the moment. The app will give you up to date info on traffic and any thing else happening on the roads. However, at this point in time you can only report something when and where it happens. If you see a mobile speed camera and/or police, you have to press the report option IMMEDIATELY which sometimes might not be the best idea. Being able to report some thing when you get to your next destination would be a better idea..Version: iOS 4.29

Great nav app... BUTI’ve been using Waze for quite a while. However in one of the recent updates there are some problematic issues that need resolved. First and most important... waze now announces “hazard” ahead instead of announcing construction ahead, car stopped on road ahead, pot hole in road ahead... etc etc. because it only announced a “hazard”, one must now look at the phone to figure out what the hazard is... this can be a safety issue. It was much better when the announcement stated exactly what the hazard was, therefore one could stay focused without having to look at the phone all the time. Another change in a recent update is the new female American English voice is very annoying!! Please go back to the original voice... it was much more pleasant and natural sounding. This new voice is not very friendly and on a long drive it’s quite irritating. Overall it’s a great app that has saved me time and gas getting from point to point. The rerouting around traffic jams and accidents are nice, identifying traffic cameras, speed limits and current speed, etc are all nice features not found in other applications. Keep up the good work Waze... but PLEASE fix the “hazard” warning (by going back to the way it used to be) and change back to the original American English voice. Thank you.Version: 4.55.1

On timeUsed Waze to figure out when I needed to leave to arrive at Melbourne, and a few days later Sydney, airports last week. Traffic forecast and leaving time more or less spot on both times - very happy - the only suggestion I could make if at all possible would be if data about wait times for a taxi could also be factored in e.g. “to arrive at B at 7:00pm, leave A at 6:30pm. Wait time for A is usually about 10 minutes - book by 6:20pm” or something. Will definitely refer to Waze again next time! Thank you..Version: 4.45

Best map app out there.By far the best map app out there on iPhones. The social information gathering is what really makes the real time information and route updates work..Version: iOS 4.29

Add SPEED CAMARASIt’s time to upgrade your app. They are adding a lot of speed cameras in the city of Toronto. I was told if you go over only by 1 speed that is around a $7 charge and a flash of license plate. It’ll be nice to know where they are located just like the red light camara..Version: 4.64

One suggestionFantastic app! I’ve given it four stars because I think it could do with some improvements. A few suggestions. First one is to have an option to choose speed cameras instead of only police. In Canberra, we have speed vans that aren’t police so it would be great to be able to indicate that it is a speed van/camera instead... Also, it would be great to have the option to be able to delete or edit a notification you’ve put up. When you’ve only just started using Waze, it’s easy to do something wrong, especially when you’ve only got a few seconds to make a decision. Lastly, I think there should be a setting where you can get Waze to calculate a route for you that avoids police and/or speed cameras. If these changes were made, this app would be perfect however, I am still very pleased with it. I never go anywhere in my car without having it on..Version: 4.67

I can be a FIVE STAR App!This app can be a five star app. Granted it’s new and growing. But, the directions are not always exact. The notifications on traffic, things on the road, car pulled over, accidents, police near by, red camera alerts are amazing!!! This app can be five star when the directions to some areas are corrected. Even when submitting a notice of an address that is incorrect is some times difficult to fix. These addresses are confused with streets that are similar in name. For example, Moreno is the correct address vs. Mereno which is also a street and is not correct in pertaining to the location I need to go to. I have had it corrected by another Wazer, yet is reverted back to the wrong name of the street. Those are the frustrations I have. I notice it more on some addresses being incorrect based on, that I am driving a lot. This app is great for keeping you aware of where police radar are being seen by other Wazers. The Wazers are what makes this app so useful and fun to use. Such a wonderful idea and to make you aware of traffic locations, slow downs, standstills and much more. I really like how the blue circle gets highlighted around your car on the app when you have driven into a radar area. Love this app!.Version: 4.56

5*Best Gps app.Version: iOS 4.29

Mostly Good Navigation, Interface ProblemsI switch back and forth between Waze and Google maps, often comparing routes. While usually similar, Waze seems to be better on avoiding problems and using real-time traffic data. However, it also has an annoying bug — occasionally it will take you off the most direct route and send you in a large circle, ending back on the main route close to where you left. I’ve seen this happen when it was clear there was no reason to make this detour because I could see that the main route was clear far ahead. My other gripe is that lack of control over the interface leads to annoyances. While you now have more control over what problems it reports (finally, no more “car on the side of the road” alerts!), it seems to ignore the setting for distance, often reporting “Police 25 miles ahead” when they aren’t even on your route. Also, while the speedometer is very useful, there is no way to change the size or default colors (white below speed limit, red above), so it is often impossible to read. Bottom line: worth giving a try, but don’t ditch Google maps, and watch out for occasionally nutty directions..Version: iOS 4.29

Fast learner!Easy to use and community driven so constantly improving. Generally does a good job for directions but my favourite feature is the ability to detect and report traffic and other issues. Great for commuting to and from work. NZ user here - definitely recommend it! New sharing ability is awesome, lets you share your drive via a mobile website so others can see when you're due to arrive..Version: 3.7.7

Great app, needs car play and pay to remove adsReally helps navigate in construction season!.Version: iOS 4.29

LOVE IT!!!!This is THE most accurate GPS system I’ve ever used. I have never been steered wrong w/WAZE or down a street that’s closed or non-existent. Plus, another beauty with them is that they automatically update road changes, streets or maps, so YOU don’t have to worry about doing it yourself right before heading out the door!!! All you do is turn it on and go!!! I also absolutely love the “heads-up” notifications I get when driving (i.e. police ahead, road delays, accidents, etc.) and the continual notifications of when you’re getting close to having to take a turn down a street or close to taking an exit. I can’t even begin to count, how many times I have gotten so incredibly frustrated, when using other mapping systems, receiving late notifications (like 15 seconds beforehand ) of when you had to take a turn but then miss the street or miss the exit and then having to travel beyond your destination, in order to make a U-turn back or take a different exit, in order to back track around and get back on route .. ugghh 😖🤬. NO more of THAT nonsense w/WAZE!!!! Thank You!!! 🙏🏽 Keep up the good work - you definitely have a happy customer with me. 😃.Version: 4.63

Great for avoiding trafficI use this all the time when I’m going to a known destination I’ve been before. It’s great for routing you the fastest way. However, when you divert off a route (because you missed a turn etc) it constantly tries to put you back on that route. Every week, twice a week I drive to the same destination. Every week it directs me a way where there is multiple speed humps. Speed humps and my car do not agree. So I take another smoother route which takes the same amount of time, if not shorter, but every week it diverts me through speed humps. When travelling to a new destination i will use google maps app because it lets you know which lane to be in. It’s kinda hard to move across 4 lanes of traffic. If there are 2 lanes and one is banked up for 800m you look like a jerk when you realise you need to squeeze into the banked up lane to make a turn..Version: iOS 4.33

Great features, especially for motorcyclesRecently fixed a frustrating issue that ceased dipping or pausing audio before giving instructions. Best routing for motorcyclists using audio only. Repeats instructions audibly two/three times depending on the road. Often about 1 Minute before a junction, a second time about 15 seconds from a junction, and finally a last time as you reach the junction. This repetition is the most helpful when you don’t have the visual of the screen to refer to. If you’ve been concentrated on the road or potential hazard, it gives multiple opportunities to hear the instruction again..Version: 4.35

Just install and use it. Always getting better. A few improvements requested.Great features: best routing around trouble I’ve ever seen around the most up to date traffic information possible. The audio app integration is a neat addition. I recently upgraded my phone and it uses the additional screen space effectively. Changing the voice for directions is great. Loving the validation Cookie Monster provides at my destination! Could be improved: Pandora integration makes it look like you can change stations or thumb up/down from within Waze but it doesn’t actually work. Needs to include Audible and Podcasts apps. If I take a shortcut through an alley or start out in a school parking lot, Waze seems to really lose track of where I am and is in recalculation mode for miles at best. Sometimes I have to kill it and start over to get it to tell me where to go at a critical junction. Nit pick: Routes could better predict drive times based on historical data. I drive from Illinois to Missouri in the St. Louis area every day. That means picking a bridge over the Mississippi right at the start. I-270 will always jam up in north St. Louis County after I leave my house and take 5-10 minutes longer than Waze says on a GOOD day. They aren’t all good days..Version: 4.51.3

Love it!I drive all the time for work and waze is great. I love how others can report driving hazards and conditions, it's also neat to be able to send in map errors and stuff and talk with the moderators. The only complaint I have is some of the instructions for motorway interchanges etc aren't written very well around NZ (eg the motorway abbreviation "Mtwy" is spelt out literally). Aside from a few quirks it is an excellent app. Thanks!.Version: 4.2.0

Great app!Fantastic app and fantastic concept. I agree with other New Zealand users that the crowdsourcing features have limited utility until the user base grows. I expect that will happen over the next few years and make this app even better. The kids have a great time with the voices too..Version: 4.16.0

Fantastic appI'm a professional driver. This app has unique and very useful features. The ability to log problems in real time and see other peoples alerts is extremely good. The point system adds a little bit of fun to it. My advice. Get Waze!.Version: 4.9.0

Best navigation app by far!This app is absolutely brilliant, if I could give it more than 5 stars I would. The directions are very accurate and always takes me the quickest routes to avoid the worst of the traffic. The road reports such as stopped cars, police, speed cameras and roadworks are very accurate and always gives plenty warning. It’s very easy to read directions compared to Apple & Google Maps and traffic jam information is FAR more accurate. The speed limit is always right and the GPS speedometer is more accurate than my car’s speedo. Also works well with CarPlay and easy to navigate through. The ads are not even obstructive as I’ve noticed they only appear as a banner at the top when stopped in traffic, for example. More people that use this app will only make it better as it takes road information by its users. It’s also quite light on data use considering the amount of information you get. I have no complaints about Waze and will continue to use it over any other apps as it really does save me a lot of time. Highly recommend!.Version: 4.44

TopsSo many Sat Apps, so many useless! But not this one. The first time we used it in the capital city, it re-routed us around road closures and took us to our destination, far faster than any of the other apps even suggested and most knew nothing about the road closures either. I don't leave home without it now. Loved my Star Wars and Sue Perkins voices! Need them back. Silly voices make driving even more tolerable! Waze comes into its own when faced with a metropolis city drive. I have never ever, ever, got to my destination so quickly without traffic than with my trusted Waze App. I felt like I had a LONDON Black Cab on the Knowledge driver next to me. Just awesome, Don't let adverts ruin a superb App. Just don't do it please!.Version: iOS 4.31

Great navigation and traffic - poor BluetoothBeen a Wazer for a number of years now and swear by it, particularly for regular journeys on known routes where there is likely to be traffic issues to avoid and getting to football matches on time. One niggle though and this has been an issue on my current car (2016 BMW 2 series gran tourer) and previous car (2012 Vauxhall Astra) - the Bluetooth connectivity is erratic: it always cuts off the first second or two of navigation instruction speech when the car radio is on, or no radio is on. It does work fine if playing when using the iPhone as an audio source, ie iTunes or another app, it actually fades the sound out and the navigation over it, as you’d expect. When on radio setting it just cuts across it completely, but misses the first word or two. Also, actually connecting it to Bluetooth is temperamental, regularly there is no sound at all, this is when charging the iPhone via the lightening/USB port whilst trying to navigate using Bluetooth. It is difficult to force a Bluetooth connection as it defaults to a dock connection and cannot be overridden. Generally I find myself unplugging the charger a lot and even stopping the ignition to try and reset. A friend with a VW Golf and iPhone also has the same issues. I’m on an iPhone X and always update to the latest iOS software and latest version of Waze straight away..Version: 4.51

More optionsI’m definitely a devotee wazer. I love all the great features and people power with additions. But...there used to be this great feature where you could select shorter OR faster routes. I lived off that feature as the faster route was much better in heavy traffic cities. But going out to the suburbs the fastest doesn’t always work as it still sends you on the longer route. I like that I could select the shorter route when you know it’s only a second faster going the ‘long’ way around. Please add back this feature and the map will be 5 star worthy..Version: 4.48

Awesome appTo put it simply; this app is awesome. I've sold my TomTom (it was their flagship model) and solely use this app for navigation. It has everything; navigation, turn by turn directions, speed camera alerts, police presence alerts and a fantastic community. You can also use Google within the app to locate where you want to go to. It's brilliant; I wish I'd found it sooner!.Version: 3.5.3

Waze Car Play ExperienceI love Car Play and I love Waze, so I’m pleased to see it available only a week after the IOS12 official launch. So what do I think... it works very well indeed, I’ve been trying out Google Maps since last Monday and Waze offers better map functionality. The inclusion of the speed of the road is welcomed, as is the over speed notification, although I’d prefer more than a beep. The one thing lacking is the GPS speedo, is this a Car Play thing? I suspect so, but it’s a shame not to have this as per the iPhones / iPad app. As for the navigation, display and speech recognition, this are all great, it even seems to suggest you can use Siri, but I haven’t tried this fiction yet, just the built in mic in the app itself. The reporting features seem to work well, so as an initial release, I’m happy. Would love to see the digital speedo though, so please see if you can incorporate this. The ability to change from the arrow to the vehicle is nice, although the icons seem rather small compared to the arrow. Keep up the good work, impressive to see at least two new mapping systems on Apple Car Play so soon after release. Well done Waze..Version: 4.43.4

Florence EvacuationWAZE IS AMAZING. Thank you sooo much whoever created this APP. I am home safe because of this APP. I can not praise you enough. Hi everyone. Right now I am so thankful to be home. We evacuated to Concord and was there from Wednesday the 12th to Tuesday the 18th. We knew our home was alright but you know you need to see it for yourself. We left Concord at 10:30 yesterday morning along with our two puppies. We used our GPS on hour cars for a good ways. We ended up in SC at South of the border. This was also with the help of a police officer and a local resident. But with all of this and trying to get past the water flooding was daunting. My sisters we watching out for the whole way. One of them told use to try the app “WAZE”. I downloaded it to my iPad. I am here to tell you we would not be home today if it wasn’t for this app. It would even tell us about a vehicle parked on the side of the road a half a mile away in the dark. It is amazing. She only made two mistakes but that was because road block had just happened. I highly recommend this app. Everyone stay safe and God bless all the lineman, police, EMS, firefighters and anyone else I have not mentioned that are working so hard to keep us safe and getting our lives back to normal..Version: 4.43

Support staff don't respondIt's a fantastic App but I’m giving them 1-star because, As a long-time Wazer more than 20 times I sent them the correct speed limit in ”SCHOOL ZONE” from 50km to 40km in my neighbourhood, but they neither care nor respond..Version: 4.58

Good but occasional routing issuesWaze doesn’t like it if you alter the route by taking a different exit, turn, etc. So instead of calculating the best route from the new location it gives directions to resume the already calculated route despite not being the quickest. Essentially you need to hit the route option button to get that to happen & then you’ll see the trip is shortened by the new calculation. Google maps is better in this regard, but lacks the level of user reporting that Waze is known for. Occasionally Waze will also take small strange detours that will only add time & effort to the trip, I think this is a bug in the server as the same route will not often have such detours. Lastly I avoid using Waze in the country as it doesn’t route well out there either, Google maps is much better but not perfect either as I have been directed to locked gates by the latter..Version: 4.68

One of the best if not the best GPS appsBasically my title summed it up. The Waze app is one of the best if not the best GPS app available to the public and amazingly free I shouldn’t of said that too loud I don’t want to give them any ideas. I just moved into a new home in a very new subdivision and ran google maps,Bing maps,maps and a couple of others none of the other GPS apps could find my new house but guess what the Waze app pinpointed it directly took me right to it! Seriously though the Waze app gives you real time information as it is occurring due to the fact it’s interactive with other users. Not only do you get directions from point a to point B Waze gives you a choice of three different routes and you choose the one you think would be best tells you the time it would take to do it how far it is tells you what obstructions you might encounter along the way. The app allows you in real time to post accident stead of just occurred where police are hidden shooting radar tells you what speed the traffic is moving in a traffic jam it’s a pretty accurate app as long as other users are updating events as they occur. To sum it Up the Waze app is outstanding.Version: 4.50

Stunned!!!Huge shoutout 2 Waze & ALL Waze users in Richmond VA (and all tri-cities) 4 how live this app truly is. TBH I had my doubts! But you have definitely made me a believer of the amazing accuracy! Each time I’ve used waze & there’s an alert of police, debris on road, & car on shoulder etc...it was at a💯! So I 👏🏼 U & All the Waze users! I ❤️@waze & will recommend 2 everyone! I will most definitely consider giving waze 5/5 stars ⭐️ if you guys would take all the users suggestions that I’ve come across & actually make it happen in a more timely manner. I also have a suggestion myself. CAN YOU PLEASE ADD more options on vehicles to choose from (or be able to change the color of the vehicle by being able to hold the vehicle down and choose a different color) on the navigation map? Also, make the vehicles you have available actually look like the description of that vehicle? For example: The SUV looks like a dump truck, the bus...well there should possibly be two types of buses (make them both longer & make one yellow), and as I’d stated before have different color & size options for the cars, & make one for an actual SUV with different colors. I really hope you’ll make these changes. Once you do, I’ll be more than happy to give you a 5/5..Version: 4.39

CarPlay needs improvingLove the app on my iPhone but with the new release on CarPlay, not so good on the Volkswagen App. There are some bugs and improvements that need to be made. When you don’t have any directions entered, speed limit displays intermittently but no speedo. When directions are entered, you can see the top of the speed limit symbol but it’s covered over by the black bubble that displays your next turn, still no speedo. You cannot select other wazers on the screen nor can you select any other things like petrol stations, police, accidents etc. Basically, functionality is very limited. I love this app on my phone and it would be great to have all the functions of the phone on the cars display..Version:

CarPlay now working betterThe latest release has fixed the problem (for UK drivers) where in CarPlay the directions covered up the speed limit indication. I’d still like to see the addition of actual GPS speed, but maybe that’s a CarPlay limitation. The onscreen icons are very small, and as far as I can see there’s nothing to say what the various icons represent. I recently went on a 2000 mile road trip in mainland Europe and the only problem I had was when there was no phone coverage in the Mösel valley and the map appeared blank after a while. That could have been fixed if I’d downloaded the maps in advance, it would be nice to be able to do that on a country by country basis..Version: 4.44

Car Audio issuesI wish I could have found a way to report this bug... And note I otherwise love Waze. When using Waze and Apple CarPlay, Waze seems to change the car audio settings. When a song is playing and the phone is switched to Music or any other app, the sound is normal. When Waze is brought to the front the music playing change audio song to a great extent. I can't explain this other than to think that Waze is overriding the iPhone audio settings for the music that is playing. It is a significant difference that makes using Waze whilst listening to music undesirable..Version:
