    Finally I find this on Windows Phone 8! Three stars because not yet tested, but I look forward to retaining my Waze Knight status since I left Android behind :)

    Nice idea but doesn't work properly on android nor two windows phones. Tomtom or copilot ***

    Kicks the HERE maps ***! Can actually do alternative routes thanks god and the alerts, speed cameras and chat stuff is just great. Great nav app.

    Really innovative approach to traffic data in a sat-nav app. My only wish is for a landscape mode! You'll want your charger as it operates 'online', but that's by design, since it continuously monitors your driving to determine road conditions and send it to the cloud. Also the fun of accumulating achievements for driving is a nice twist! I've found the maps to be extremely accurate, and if you spot a map error you can go online to edit the map, adding the power of local knowledge! Superb!

    Brilliant on iPhone, bad on WP. No landscape,hot phone and poor battery life. Same as everyone. Shame really as this App is potentially one of the best ever.

    I am not giving a better rate because the app doesn't rotate! Huge fail, you definitely have to sort this out!

    Good app where you have free data, but would be better if it could use locally held maps for roaming.
  • by Alan 24/03/2014
    Inaccurate, I have a TomTom and will continue to pay for it.
  • by Jamie 23/03/2014
    Map colours are awful. App works though. Would prefer choice of real-time data

    Battery life has improved a lot but it could a little bit smoother
