    Would be great if it didn't kill the battery so quickly. Confirmed that it drains the battery on a 920 (event when it is the only app running that I can jump to) faster than the phone charges when wired to cigarette lighter. Tried installing and using again on 4/12/2014 - still killed 12% of power in under 10 minutes (without being plugged in this time).

    Why are people rating this high is beyond me. The Waze app on WP is a piece of ****. They made it just to get MS off their backs. Map scrolling is THE worst experience ever. No other navigation app, as bad as it may be, is as ****** as this. Ridiculously lagging. I thought this is how Waze was on other systems also, but no. For Android and iOS they made it very fluid and responsive. Also, no Facebook integration. As always, Android and iOS have it. On WP we can't change the gas prices for the gas stations.. only Android and iOS can. So.. 5 stars -1 for worst scrolling ever. -1 for no facebook integration. -1 for no updating gas prices. -1 for releasing this as a joke.

    Really loved this app until I updated to WP 8.1. Now, any dialogue popups (Recalculating Route, Sending Report, etc.) do not go away after they are shown. You have to hit back arrow like you are exiting the app, then click Cancel to remove dialogues from the screen.

    This app is too slow and for its GPS purpose...horrible.

    My online news feed on fb advertising this app said that there is a new feature in which you can sync calendar events with your waze favorite locations. The app has to be the latest version, which I can't seem to find. What's up with that? Anyone else having this issue?

    When are you fixing the Facebook issue??? It's been too long with that *****!! Fix it!!!
