Waze Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • alexgrantuk Alex Grant (@alexgrantuk) reported

    @JesseCrosse Interactivity. I prefer the Google interface, but I like the idea that I’m helping others to avoid delays by contributing on Waze. The big issue is it doesn’t allow you to report road closures in CarPlay, presumably due to distraction, but you can in the smartphone version.

  • gustafengstrom Gustaf Engström (@gustafengstrom) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    @Uber_Support That’s alright. Not your fault and don’t want the driver to get in trouble, it’s a Waze issue.

  • Nir_Kahn Nir Kahn (@Nir_Kahn) reported

    @dude313123123 @JesseCrosse I think that’s correct for what they glean passively which is basically just traffic flow. But in Waze itself you can voluntarily mark hazards, broken traffic lights, accidents, all sorts of stuff that’s very useful to other users

  • jonbradbury Jon Bradbury  (@jonbradbury) reported

    @JesseCrosse I don’t. I prefer Co-pilot. Last use of Waze was improved but Co-pilot has been my first choice for over 10 years. Just lacks decent traffic but for me that’s rarely an issue

  • Evilzorac Pops (@Evilzorac) reported

    Heading N on 95 near Woodbine and Waze app says, warning police ahead but hidden. We slow, start looking around, no police. Then see 3 wild pigs grazing on side of road. Kudos wazer! 😂😂😂

  • Dojeaux • Dojeaux • (@Dojeaux) reported

    @waze driving in the rain and of course the ***** tells me to turn as i’m passing. i usually just say fck it and take the next turn. nah this ***** has me drive the wrong way on an exit ramp IN THE RAIN. fix this dumb shit asap. been too long.

  • KCBSAMFMTraffic KCBS Radio - The Traffic Leader (@KCBSAMFMTraffic) reported

    @CMACollins Yes, #HalfMoonBay - Hwy 92 neat Lemos Farms ALL LANES of BOTH DIRECTIONS are BLOCKED with a serious crash. No estimates of when the roadway will reopen. Use Hwy 1 or Hwy 84 as your alternates. #KCBSTraffic #Waze #SanMateo

  • mattashwood Matt Ashwood (@mattashwood) reported

    I wish Waze wasn’t so aggressive with rerouting. Maybe Apple maps 2.0 will be more reliable to use. I’ve always had issues with googles GPS accuracy enough to make me not use it if I’m in a hurry (or on the go...like I am in the car)

  • Waze_Arizona Waze Arizona (@Waze_Arizona) reported

    Broadway Rd is closed between Ellsworth & Crismon Roads for a crash. #Waze

  • patrick_kellish Patrick Kellish (@patrick_kellish) reported

    I wouldn’t say I have trust issues... but if Waze tells me to leave at 7:45 to arrive at 8:45 ill leave 30 minutes earlier cause who knows with Jersey morning traffic

  • leanne48927131 leanne (@leanne48927131) reported

    @LifewaysGroup I’m disappointed to say to everybody on life Waze I’ve been over here for two years in Hucknall project I am part of living in lifeways we have a landlord called Dennis and we haven’t of prom we’ve had a lot of problems off him since I moved in we’ve had holes in ceilin

  • TheRealQuinn_H Quinn's burner acct (@TheRealQuinn_H) reported

    @Janistie I deleted Waze, they kept lying to me about cops on the turnpike and made me slow down for nothing 🥱

  • 65Heburn Kenny Heburn (@65Heburn) reported

    @Katie_Jeffries My Waze App was not happy. Trying to get from McDuff to Racetrack. No Buckman…. I-95 was a parking lot. Crash on Phillips. Crash on San Josè. But I’m home!

  • laurabenetti Beauty and the Beach (@laurabenetti) reported

    @waze fix the bug on Apple that doesn’t make the “car stopped” prompt go away unless I say “thanks” or “not there” no matter the distance.

  • hockeycanada25 Shawn (@hockeycanada25) reported

    @TPS_32Planner @CstTaraso9345 Gotta thank @waze yesterday !!! Wasn’t aware of my speed but got a alert from Waze of police ahead . Sure enough there was a radar trap ahead . Luckily I had time to slow down. Sometimes that’s all you need to get back to proper driving habits :)

  • skdphotography Sk (@skdphotography) reported

    Second time i went Portugal my waze app wasnt working half way through the journey legit used road signs and small memory to get to my destination

  • BrendonInCT Brendon Petersen (@BrendonInCT) reported

    @TcMoila @MensHealthZA @techreframed it works perfectly. Even let's me sign into my Waze account. I uninstalled the Waze app that was brought over via Phone Clone and installed the APK with no issues, but most people aren't used to that process. Things like the Capitec app or the Netflix app or even Uber are where

  • leo_meany Leo Meany (@leo_meany) reported

    I wish Waze had a “Watch out, slow idiot in left lane ahead!” alert on their app!! I would so use it. @waze

  • Ju_JustGetsIt Julian (@Ju_JustGetsIt) reported

    @waze y’all gotta fix that. Y’all know black people have institutionalized anxiety when it comes to police. Be having me slow down and get right for nothing.

  • Waze_Arizona Waze Arizona (@Waze_Arizona) reported

    WB I-10 at MP 208, W of Eloy, is closed for a crash. No ETO. #Waze

  • aislinnelenaf eyslinn (@aislinnelenaf) reported

    @waze Hi, the problem we experienced was once we arrived in the 2nd country on our trip none of my family members waze app was able to give us directions to italy (as if a map hadnt downloaded). Ive seen other people say the same online too. When abroad the app seems to stop working.

  • YallReallyWeird Fuck This App (@YallReallyWeird) reported

    I’m currently entering this into my Waze app to locate the issue and where this is headed but I can’t seem to find it

  • EyesOnTraffic4U Eyes On Traffic For You (@EyesOnTraffic4U) reported

    Arlington County Crash: WB Lee Highway At N. Illinois Street; Left lane Blocked; two vehicles. #arlington #traffic @ARLnowDOTcom @ArlingtonVaPD @waze

  • KryseQ Kryse (@KryseQ) reported

    Waze is so slow.. already be making the wrong turn by time it reroutes.. ugly

  • CoachLiamKlein CoachLiam Klein (@CoachLiamKlein) reported

    FYI @MBStadium the Waze app took us to 3 straight closed entrances to the Red Deck for @MonsterJam. Late to the event for 2nd straight year for same issue. 20 minute ride turned into 1 hour and 20. Need to get that fixed.

  • NicholasSzilag4 Nicholas Szilagyi (@NicholasSzilag4) reported

    @saffronhillier1 According to waze, been a crash, wants us to reroute via Central London

  • michaeltibay ... (@michaeltibay) reported

    So since an existing “Torre” leads TNC drivers to a different location, I had to be smart and artistic about it. I reported a map issue on @waze. I thought that there was a need to make a distinction so subsequent confusion can be avoided, hence the addition of *West Riverside*

  • radiodjdave dave smith radio dj (@radiodjdave) reported

    @waze how do u report a traffice issue after your journey on the route used

  • jon244 Jon Sheppard (@jon244) reported

    @waze I currently have a bug on CarPlay where speed cameras / alerts appear twice (one above the other) which I can’t dismiss the top one. This then blocks the next exit and distance box - very annoying. Switched to @googlemaps until you fix it.

  • Andrew11_23 Andrew™️ (@Andrew11_23) reported

    Man for the past months @googlemaps and @apple maps haven’t been working for shit. Thanks to @waze for kinda working better but not fully I know it might be my phone too but **** man lol

  • infosecmagic Cameron Hoelscher (@infosecmagic) reported

    A comparison between Waze users providing info and crowdsourced CTI: Users provide indicators, indicators get accuracy votes, users get a rating for their overall accuracy. A big problem is subjectivity vs. objectivity. #BSidesBCS #BSidesBCS2020

  • mucha_carlos Carlos Mucha (@mucha_carlos) reported

    @DrCameronMurray @AppleSupport There’s a very simple technical fix for this: Go to the App Store and download Waze. Seriously though, you should contact your local city government on this. Companies tend to be more responsive when their govt liaison team passes on a complaint.

  • dude463_waze dude463 (@dude463_waze) reported

    @SoapBoxRocket @waze My fix isn't absolute, but it should help.

  • wazeillinois Waze Illinois (@wazeillinois) reported

    We've closed I-80 EB at Minooka Rd on the @Waze map due to a 6-8 vehicle crash. Pending updates #Waze will begin routing through again at 2 AM. TY @JustinTea5 (reported on FB too!) #ILtraffic #ChicagoTraffic #CHItraffic

  • score1more Brent - SV 🌷 (@score1more) reported

    @ChrisH75995549 And Waze knows the speed limit and I'd suggest a list of valid speed limits to prevent OCR errors

  • waze_Hawaii Waze Hawaii (@waze_Hawaii) reported

    Big Island #Waze alert for Keaau: Non-working traffic signals on Volcano Road near the intersection of Paahana Street on Sunday, Feb. 23, from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. due to maintenance work.

  • tomdryan Tom Ryan (@tomdryan) reported

    @waze REALLY sucked in DC today. Waze directed traffic to a major road (GW Parkway) that had been effectively closed due to a major accident 40 minutes before. You guys should look into what happened and fix it. @waze_dc

  • Waze_Ohio Waze Ohio (@Waze_Ohio) reported

    Central Ohio Wazers: US-23 near London-Groveport Rd has been closed in both directions in the @waze app as a result of this crash. Slow down and leave adequate following distance as you travel!

  • fatinajihaes 🌿 (@fatinajihaes) reported

    really need a new phone :'(( my phone selalu hang and gps problem, few times dah i sesat bawak kereta bcs i'm really bad with directions and i need waze at all time. nak beli phone baru, broke tapi 😩💔

  • mlight21 Like Might (@mlight21) reported

    @TotalTrafficABE @wfmztraffic 33 north backed up from 22 East. All sorts of traffic problems this morning. Check Waze before leaving.

    Arlington County Crash: NB Glebe Rd At Williamsburg Blvd; SB lanes blocked on Glebe; @WTOPtraffic #arlington #traffic @drgridlock @waze

  • jjones9 Jonathan Jones (@jjones9) reported

    @RobGuy3 gotta get a physical map and tabs. that's the problem with relying on waze

  • woodvale_waze John Anstey (@woodvale_waze) reported

    @KieranRawley @waze Forum post on URO+ - there's a known problem with new URs not being added to the feed.

  • jasonargoargo Jason Argo (@jasonargoargo) reported

    @schep_ @DCDOTRA I dunno. As people have said, it won't work bc of apps like Waze and just local knowledge. If a driver takes the same route everyday, they're gonna figure out where to slow down and where not.

  • 1crazyarchitect John Abowd (@1crazyarchitect) reported

    @schep_ @DCDOTRA DC does this in my neighborhood. There are at least two signs in different locations and no cameras. Been like it for years - drivers don’t slow down because they know where cameras actually are from apps like Waze and publicly available data.

  • Waze_Arizona Waze Arizona (@Waze_Arizona) reported

    NB SR-51 is closed at Shea Blvd for a crash. All traffic must exit at Shea, but can re-enter via the Shea on-ramp. No ETO #Waze

  • mvnRT меl (@mvnRT) reported

    Was headed towards home. Then waze updated with 30 mins added cause of a crash. NOPE near work it is.

  • spank419 Wakeup Bud (@spank419) reported

    Words for what you want from Beijing, but he is telling me if you speak out you get arrested and you disappear. This coronavirus is a bigger problem than anything we have seen Waze surpassing sars, which is scary. And Wall Street just ignores it. That’s even scarier. God help us

  • EyesOnTraffic4U Eyes On Traffic For You (@EyesOnTraffic4U) reported

    Arlington County Crash: SB Carlin Springs Road At Route 50; overturned vehicle; two lanes blocked SB, fire rescue and EMS on scene; @WTOPtraffic @waze #arlingtontraffic #crash @ArlingtonVA @ARLnowDOTcom

  • thisisvaft VAFT (@thisisvaft) reported

    @BenGeskin Apple Maps when not working. Waze at work

  • kiran68030317 kiran (@kiran68030317) reported

    @waze I normally love your app but this morning I had tolls off and it took me through Congestion charge and ULEZ without notifying me of this! Not happy at all. Fix this please ASAP. I feel violated.

  • Vicky_U_witch witchy McGirldick🕸️🏁 (@Vicky_U_witch) reported

    @Strawbeblonde I use the waze app which auto redirects around any problem areas

  • Aloha_Onuoha Chinua Achebae❤ (@Aloha_Onuoha) reported

    Also @waze working in Nigeria is pretty legit.

  • PatrickCartmill Patrick Cartmill (@PatrickCartmill) reported

    @waze It is set to alerts only. The problem is there's a specific type of alert I can't disable: The route recalculation chirp. I want to turn that one off while keeping other alerts active. There is no option for that.

  • bdunham Brandon Dunham 🥃 (@bdunham) reported

    @brightlocal I had stopped using Waze at the end of last year because it was consistently misreading my GPS. (I was top 10% user, too). I tried A Maps because of the watch integration. G Maps was working just fine, but this recent A Maps update has won me over. I do miss speed trap notices..

  • AlpertReyes Emily Alpert Reyes (@AlpertReyes) reported

    Next question is about Waze creating traffic issues. Ryu: this is a private tech where we can’t necessarily dictate, but have worked with City Attorney to bring a lawsuit against Waze.

  • kmillar815 Kristen Millar (@kmillar815) reported

    @waze your app needs a major fix

  • KYWTraffic1060 Traffic on the Twos (@KYWTraffic1060) reported

    ACCIDENT REPORTED: Waze reports a crash EB Schuylkill Exp (I-76) near Gladwyne. Backups begin just after the Conshy Curve. @KYWTraffic1060 @KYWNewsradio #KYWTrafficWatch

  • Sinatra_Z Zaidel Baharuddin (@Sinatra_Z) reported

    @aizadfahmy I dont think waze is the issue here

  • NickAloisio1 Nick Aloisio (@NickAloisio1) reported

    Waze is pretty much my go-to app just about every day. Traffic can get rough over here around the connector, and being able to avoid slow downs and accidents save me a lot of time. @JasonHWinston #GSUSocial2020
