Waze is a fun and sophisticated navigation app. In most developed countries Waze provides superior navigation information over commercial GPS applications. Like any developing application, there are issues and complications that are being worked to resolve. Many of them are cosmetic and do not prevent a fully gratifying experience when using Waze.

Temporary issues are tracked in the official Waze server status and issues page.

Note that Waze Bugzilla, a tool previously used for bug reporting, is no longer in use. The Waze community used to report and tracks bugs and problems in the Bugzilla application. At the time, it was the best place to identify any currently known issues. There is no official replacement for Bugzilla.

Some of the more common issues include:

  • Routing distance is limited to about 1,000 miles (1600 km) distance. To route to longer distances, select a point between your origin and destination less than this limit.
  • When you request a route the client device app assumes you are continuing in the same direction you last traveled. This is often desirable, but can lead to unnecessarily longer routes when you have a choice of direction from your starting position. If you start driving the other direction, it will recalculate the route.
  • Odd routing: Waze has been known to make short detours. In these situation, Waze instructs the driver to turn off a road, only to have the driver immediately return to it. Ostensibly, this shortens the route, but it produces routes that many drivers consider unreasonable, and the time savings are often dubious. Editors can often work around this using the Detour prevention mechanisms.


I have a Droid X, with all its latest updates.

  • When looking at Waze in Droid X "installed apps", there is no obvious way to request latest Waze update verification.
  • I want to be able to edit, reorganize, and delete certain entries in the history and the Nav Favorites, but there is no obvious way to do that.
  • Even when I am going only slightly over the speed limit, the local secondary streets and roads in my area (Union, CT) disappear off the screen, despite the car icon remaining in the correct location and orientation. No such problem with Google Navigator.
