    Even though this desperately needs an update now, its still the best routing option available on windows phone due to the dynamic way it adjusts routes around traffic as it happens It just runs poorly lacks features available on other versions and eats the battery.

    It wont load on my Lumia 930. I press the app, it opens, try's to load then sends me back to the home page. Happens every time

    None of the social login options or most of the other functionality of IOS ir android therefore not worth the effort to download

    Good but needs updating.
  • by Patrick 04/04/2015
    The map view is clear and easy on the eye. However: (1) the map does not auto-rotate into landscape view when my Lumia 1020 is turned on its side - that alone is enough to make me stop using Waze; and (2) no voice turn-directions can be heard, with the phone Bluetooth-connected to my car sound system. The Nokia Here Drive+ app that I've always used before, does not have these problems, so that's what I'm continuing to use.
