Sugar Land, Texas
@waze Just not working. Frequently says Searching Network yet all my other Apps are working just fine. Also, lost all my points/status when I got a new phone...SMH. Nothing changed as far as username and all that.
Crystal Bay, Nevada
Made the mistake and trusted a service like @waze driving to Tahoe Friday. app is clearly not designed for seasonality. During major weather issues, #waze should defer recommendations to Caltrans rather than try to supersede it with their janky Machine data. #fakemaps
Durban, Province of KwaZulu-Natal
@_Phungs Lmao Waze waphapha Bo, I was working izolo and I'm tired
Batangas City, Calabarzon
I turned on the GPS of the car, the main road does not exist anymore. My waze wasn’t even working. This is where the point i really got scared AF.
@RxsieWoop @waze I cannot fix that lol
Cape Town, Western Cape
@grightford Gillian! I’m fed up beyond belief with @Uber_RSA mao issues. Must admit though that I’ve been having same problem using google maps for getting around CT the past month. Waze way better.
The Waze app goes hard on road trips, the wife was smashing down the freeway then I see the cop pop up, tell her to slow down and get over, 30 secs later there’s the 🐷
@dearappauthors @jehiah @waze It's weird but Waze is owned by Google. Problematic to assume "the user is always right" when the user is driving a car like a sociopath. This could be helped with a nudge in the right direction (i.e. "slow down" when approaching school zones, dangerous intersections, etc) #VZ
The problem with @waze is a lack of a good cost-benefit analysis in the algorithm. In other words, it’s happy to send you up an expensive toll route, so you spend $10, to save 30 seconds.
West Babylon, New York
I feel like Waze recently gives you worst route possible with the most issues
@MystroDriver you are killing me. Turn on the app forces to Lyft but does not sign in. Flitters between Uber and Lyft even while navigating with Waze. Crazy
Pleasant Point, Texas
@Breaking911 Police already use Waze to make people slow down all they have to is drive down the highway and Mark themselves. Everyone slows down Job is done
God damn you, @waze! Fix your algorithm around the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel/I-895. So much time lost!
@DetoxPoncho Apple gave up; and I left them off the hook. They couldn’t reproduce the problem, and neither could my wife on her iPhone or iPad. It’s got to be something with me, naturally! Now I find out that Waze doesn’t work either.
@waze I’m having network and loading issues w/ the app in the dc/northern Virginia area this morning.
