Review Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic

Jay Feldman
9.0Excellent
Powerful functionality, intuitive interface, modern design
Functions slowly, is lagging, kills your battery
Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic for Android takes your GPS navigation to the next level by adding social networking and location sharing with friends. It’s playful and fun, though perhaps invites too much distraction while behind the wheel.
Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic is actually really cool. Basically, it takes the boredom out of driving and puts a little pep in your navigation. The app uses your phone’s location services to zero in on your location and present a cartoonish and user friendly interactive map on your gizmo. Just set your destination, hit navigate, and you’ll get playful GPS guidance to wherever you’re going. Waze places all of your friends onto the map too, so you can easily see where they are, where they’re going and even how fast they’re driving. Waze also gives users the ability to report traffic jams, police speed traps, ticket cameras and even report accidents – like the one you’re bound to get into while staring at all the visual stimuli this app provides.
The app functions fairly well, but the maps are very slow to render and bogged down; same as most every other GPS app. The app does drain your battery, so if you decide to use this, you definitely want your phone plugged in and charging while driving. I love the integration of gas prices and station locations, and also the social aspect of it all. However, it does raise some serious privacy and safety issues. This app may cause many accidents, or at the very least, is an accident waiting to happen.
Waze Social GPS Maps & Traffic is quite good and makes GPS navigation fun. It’s glitchy and a battery hog, but it’s also fun and cool. Just be careful when using it while driving; which is pretty much when you’ll use it most. Oh, and one final tip - never let your kids download this app; it's just too dangerous and enticing to use while driving.

Lots of people on Asus devices reporting this problem at the moment. Waze are aware of it, and there will be a new update in the next few days that sorts it out. In the meantime, you can download a BETA version, and disable automatic updates in google play support.google.com/waze/k...

I don't know what's going on at the moment with these devices and waze, but let's hope it's only a temporary glitch...

Yes, me too facing the same problem here with ZenFone 5.
Tariq Abdulla
not too sure what's happening there guys. Seems to crash occasionally on a lot of devices. But I did a quick search, and someone said they managed to get it to not crash by first disabling GPS, connecting to internet, opening waze, and only then enabling GPS. Any luck?

HI, I have tried everything to install Waze on my new HTC M8 and can't get past the terms of use because it won't show the "accept" button... please help.  I had this on my IPHONE and absolutely loved the app... would like to use again
bennycyg
i'm honor 3C user, is support to my hp, however, it cannot find my phone contact. only able to find my friend in FB. pls advice
BenEddie
Been using waze for well over a year now love using it, but since I've had the Samsung S5 (Android 4.4.2) the 'searching network' problem has raised it's ugly head. I know I have network coverage but waze will not pick it up.. Have tried everything in the forums turning off, reinstall etc but nothing If anyone has any ideas on a fix it would be much appreciated.
Or this might be a waze issue, if so maybe the next update could address the issue.

not compatable for my oppo find 7a, no language option,no voice guidance, keep looking my phone while driving,,its danger!
Vlad Popa
Hello Jason,
I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble. You are completely right, driving like that is a danger, to yourself and others.
What do you mean by "It is not compatible" were you able to download and install the app properly?
As for language and voice instructions, the app supports English, French and Spanish to my knowledge and it should ask you about your preference at first launch. This can be changed from the settings menu at any time. For Voice Guidance, it also should be an option available to you through the settings menu or when you plan a route.

are there any way to instal waze social?  cos i noted that the android version for lenovo a369i is same as samsung galaxy grand and no issue to install this waze. But lenovo can't
Vlad Popa
It is possible that some handsets are not supported. Does Google play specifically say that it is not compatible?
opponeo
Incompatible with oppo neo. Disappointed.

Sounds good, but when I try to download to my NOOK HD, it tells me QR version is not compatible with this version". If I download the APK version it tells me it cannot open it. What is going on?
