Waze GPS Review


What do we like about Waze?

With a vibrant community and real-time, crowdsourced traffic and accident data, its routes stand out from the competitors.

What skills does it improve?

Waze's minimalism has advantages in a time when apps aim to be everything to everyone. Waze is great if you're following a regular driving path or merely need to get from one place to another. It only does the necessary tasks and little else.

What age is it appropriate for?

Waze is appropriate for individuals who have a driving license.

Is Waze free?

Waze is available and free to download on all Android and iOS devices. 

Is Waze easy to use?

Waze has a limited number of on-screen buttons and is straightforward to use. When it locks onto you, one button re-centres the app on your present location, turning it into a speedometer. A button that leads to the "Car Info" menu, where you can specify the kind of car you're driving, is located right next to that.

Small, adorable characters that wander around the map in real-time serve as representations of both you and other Wazers. Depending on the mood that each user chooses within the game, each character has a different appearance, ranging from the cheerful Sunny to the sneaky Sneaky. Waze has a more social and personalised feel thanks to the ability to change your mood at any time. This is made much better by the option to chat or "Beep" fellow Wazers by clicking on their icons while you're commuting.

How will parents benefit?

There are numerous vocal options in Waze. Turn-by-turn directions are voiced, and the app allows you to record your voice. Giving yourself instructions has a sharp quality, and you can communicate these voices to your friends. Waze also supports voice commands for hands-free searching. Waze connects to streaming music apps, which is a fantastic feature for music fans.

Waze remembers your most recent searches, although it works best for commuters who use it frequently. You can add favourites, save your home and workplace, and create events for specific scheduled routes. With the latter choice, the app will notify you when it is time to leave to arrive on schedule.

What can Waze improve on?

Obtaining directions from a location other than your current position is, regrettably, a hassle.

How much does Waze cost?

Waze is available free of cost.

Final thoughts

Waze has a clear objective: to be the best travel companion for motorists travelling from point A to point B. It's the app you open on your phone, slap into the holster of your dashboard, and then accelerate. The app also provides appealing maps and social elements that lend flair to a genre that isn't recognised for its glitz.
