Pros This is great for traffic and navigation ... unless you want to use it in large cities where carpool lanes are used.
Cons Waze is acceptable, but not as useful as it was (it no longer works in carpool lanes - HOV) and Users cannot report problems (other than map and routing).
Summary Waze refuses to use navigation in carpool lanes (HOV). It worked well until google bought it, then it quit. Normally I would have given it a 3 or maybe 4 star rating, but the software reporting is non-existent. If there is any problem with the software (not the mapping or routing), Waze ignores its users and refers them to FAQ for ALL problems. You cannot report problems in the program that need to be addressed
Pros I have a terrible driving record and I use it to avoid getting tickets. The majority of the time Waze does it's job flawlessly and I LOVE knowing where the cops are. The traffic data is normally very accurate and I really enjoy the social element
Cons Waze isn't perfect, sometimes the directions avoid using critical parts of the best route for some reason and takes me a very long way.
