I've run Waze on an airplane before several times on my iPad, just to see what it would do and to also examine a wider part of my AM area. It only works well if you have an internet connection. Because you're not supposed to have your cell signal on, you cannot get maps and connectivity to Waze. Even if you did, the connection would likely be extremely spotty. I was able to do it because I was on American, and they have Internet on many of their airplanes. You also generally have to sit next to a window to get GPS.
Waze showed a speed of zero the whole time, even though we were going 600+ mph ground speed via other apps I could use. The map worked relatively well at wider zoom levels and it was great seeing different ground features. Getting to close was a poor display. Sometimes Waze would lock me on a road for a while, other times it was just skipping over blank area like it can do in larger parking lots that are not mapped. I was able to chat with a number of people while flying over Texas.
I only did this a couple of times as I learned what I wanted and I didn't want to generate map error reports.
