I use this app every single day of life. Anywhere I am traveling I put into this app. I do not even want to begin to guess the time I have saved because of this. I have gone against what Waze suggested a few times in my life, and I lived to regret it. This app has also saved me from a few speeding tickets, and from getting caught behind something akin to a train wreck. It has saved me from being late to work, and it has saved me on my travels. I love this app. I swear by it

Since it is made by Google and uses google maps, it is trustworthy. You can choose different voices to narrate your trip, such as Morgan freeman. If you don't adjust your settings on what to tell you, you could be hearing a bunch of useless information your whole trip. It will say "hazard ahead" and it will just be a car pulled off on the side of the road. I do like that people can up vote things if they are true.

Waze is da bomb. It lets you know where the cops are, as well as any disable vehicles, road debris, or detours. You can add a stop to your route as well as let friends know where you are by sending them your location. I don't really care about some of the social features of the program but they don't get in the way, either. I prefer this much more than Google Maps.

This is the best app I have ever used - took a while to convert from traditional separate GPS unit, but now I don't even know where my GPS is! I love seeing and making alerts and being warned of cops and other hazard info. Also, the in-route updates to stay on best route are amazing and keep you on time and in the know.

This app is really good to use on a long road trip. It alerts you for when cops are ahead and even lets you know if the cop are in sight or hidden. Useful! I recently used this on a long road trip to Niagara with my husband and it possibly saved us hundreds of dollars in speeding tickets!

I downloaded this app about 6 months and I definitely find myself using it more often than any other gps its great because you see live traffic when other users post and you yourself can post any traffic, construction, and even any police in the location.

I use this app when maps is not working. I love the features like when a cop is near and the traffic routes. It did meet my expectations. I just hate how social the app wants you to be if that makes sense. But over all it is a good app.

I have a navigation system in my car and I pick waze over it any day!! Love how it gives you more than one option to get to your destination. Also love how you can alert other drivers about police, potholes, and construction.

Such a great app for drivers, everyone must get this. It will help you navigate better than any gps system because it's including traffic incidents. Unless you pay extra for a traffic subscription, this is the way to go.

I use this to get around everywhere. It is the only navigation device I trust. It takes me the fastest route and knows about all of the traffic and things going on around me

I have Scout which automatically came with my phone. How does this app differ from the the one I am using?
