It’s fixed!! I’m back to being able to use the navigation app I’ve come to rely on! That’s awesome service! Thanks, WAZE!

My absolute favorite until today when it won’t open!
I use my Waze app everyday for my commute to work and even short trips around town. I love this app!
Then today, I try to open the app and it just won’t open. I click on the app; it pops open and then closes immediately. With other apps, this usually means there’s an update or I need to delete and re-download the app to reset something, but that didn’t work today.
I’m using an iPhone 11 with iOS 13.5.1 on the Verizon network.
HELP!! I live in Houston and NEED this app!
I use this app with CarPlay for nearly every drive I take. I have used it for several years. There are a few things I would like to have considered to improve the app and make the roads safer - a goal of the app.
1. Reduce the touches required to make a report when using CarPlay.
2. Change thanks/not there to side-by-side. Too many times I have touch the wrong button because of a road bump. I dont like miss-reporting.
3. Include the time to a turn on the top left direction summary. It is spoken but not displayed.
4. Add route changes and delay notification to verbal alerts when I have only alerts set on.
Thanks Waze, fix these up and this app will be awesome again, I’ll be back to add more stars to this review.
I have been a solid user for years and have loved this app -....... until about 2 months ago. The app continually gives wrong directions < example, just tried and it said I was 12 minutes away / 5 miles from my destination ,, luckily I knew better so I put into Google Maps, and I’m actually 16 miles away and 28 minutes. Thank goodness I knew better and double checked it. This is happening all the time forcing me to switch. Makes me sad because I love the interactive traffic and police notifications , but if Waze can’t get me there it’s a mute point! :(
Great app. Easy, clear navigation; customizable alerts; traffic avoidance. Saved me hours on one interstate drive where traffic was at a standstill for miles, but I was alerted and redirected to a parallel secondary road that was all but empty. I use it every time I get in the car, even locally, so I won’t be taken by surprise by abnormal traffic problems. I sometimes wish I had the option of the map detail of Google Maps with everything else like Waze, but otherwise Waze is pretty close to perfect as is.
Love Waze for so many reasons. Feature Suggestions: 1) when reporting police, indication if the officer is moving/cruising, 2) reporting a hazard, it would be great to be able to indicate which lane the hazard is in, even it it’s just left, center, right. One would at least be able to move away from the hazard before reaching it...likewise, if an accident is reported in the right lane or right shoulder, we can move left well in advance. Thanks for every improvement.
WAZE acting up. Going backwards on the screen application, wrong street location, dint even saw a parking lot situation on the garden state parkway Whaaaa, no way to get the previous version I bet, maybe I should try apple maps again
I am using google maps, it was unusable, unpredictable, I am actually not reall sure if it’s WAZE or T-Mobile, but my google is working fine but no traffic or police feedback like WAZE use to have, miss that
I’ve been using the app for 8yrs with very few issues. Within the past week the app will no longer display the map. I’ve read that many others are experiencing crashes but that hasn’t been my experience. I’m using waze on an iPhone 6 /12.4.6. I’ve traveled up and down the east coast of the US thinking that my location had something to do with it but no luck. I’ve reset all settings on the phone and offloaded the app then reinstalled... no luck.
11:00 AM UPDATE: Still the best driving app I have found. I don’t know why it was crashing this morning but it is running well now.
6:30 AM I will up date this review ASAP but until then:
I see by the App Icon there has been an update. I have an iPhone 10 with plenty of available storage. For the time being the app will not open.
I turned my phone off and on twice. I off loaded the app and reloaded it. Nothing. It will not open.
Title says it all...
-App displays you on the wrong street/freeway all the time.
-Times are extremely off, I'm not a slow driver at all but I'm having to add 5-10 minutes for a drive that is around 30 minutes, and having to add up to 30 minutes for drives up to 2 hours, and no, no traffic or wrong turns taken.
-App likes to keep crashing randomly, everyday this app crashes on me at least once.
I’ve been a fan of Waze and have been using it even before Google acquisition.
Earlier today, Waze was crashing at the launch. According to Facebook, this was caused by their SDK errors. Apparently, Waze uses Facebook SDK even when you don’t opt in.
I will be stay away from it and give even more tracking data to Facebook without my consent, until Waze can assure me otherwise.
