The routing you get does not depend on the app version since the maps are constantly updated (sometimes almost daily) without the need to update the whole app, therefore the route you got was not due to the app but due to the calculated speed of each section of your route. Sometimes there are routing errors and in those cases it is important to remember that you are the driver and have to decide what is truly best, the system learns from all the usage.


But shouldn't it take me on most direct route.. My tomtom app had directions on main road where waze didn't.. Hmmm

That depends on what kind of navigation you have selected (in Settings>Navigation>Routing styles) Fastest (default) or Shortest.


Fastest.. And the route it selected was
Not the fastest

In this cases follow the route you think is fastest, if it differs from what the server "believes" and it turns out to truly be faster then it will learn about the best option.


But Isnt I supposed to tell me how to get home? not me tell it. no need for GPS then

Well, I wonder WHEN Waze is going to update the software with the fixes for all the issues? I just Found out SCOUT now has crowd soured traffic similar to WAZE .... I took a look and the only thing that is holding me back from switching is the lack of LANDSCAPE mode... Well they have landscape mode once you start a route but the info bars cover up too much of the map ... Plus SCOUT is not 100% free....

Speed data? is that where it shows the speed the road is current;ly moving??????

It's an ok app, but only if you're in the US. Very limited usefulness.


I used to use TELENAV on my old android phone a few years ago and really liked it.. This SCOUT app so far has been spot on with finding things (even by voice) and also the directions, traffic, and ETA. More so then the latest version of WAZE. If WAZE would FIX the issues, maybe it would be back to being as good as it was. Now that I read GOOGLE bought WAZE, who knows what is going to happen....I especially do not like the ADS that Waze POPS UP.....

I cannot comment on SCOUT on anywhere else but the US.

The search results that you get depend on the search provider which is used and I can tell you that it has improved quite a lot recently. From what I can see the issues you have mentioned are either already known and being worked on or you just don't like the routing which is not an app problem.

I can, it doesn't even exist on the México App Store.


Then you cannot comment because you didn't use to compare.. I guess it's only for usa

That is exactly what I meant, by being US only it is utterly useless in other countries.

Well then you have to use WAZE... So, I hope the TECH people at WAZE fix the issues... I would love to use WAZE again.....

THIS IS CRAZY... EVER SINCE THE LATEST UPDATE, there has been an issue with the screen going DIM, pop-up reports causing the screen to go dim and the highlight the area, then either never go back to current traveling road, or go back to the road but the map is still dim and highlighted. I have heard nothing from WAZE regarding a fix.. NOTHING. It make the program useless. Is there anyone from WAZE on here and can they please let us know an ETA for a fix?
