Please make an update for Windows Phone. I know Google and Microsoft are not showing any love but you should care more about the users. :ugeek:

Notice that the Thread for WP is the most commented and the most viewed.
When I first entered in Waze almost 4 years ago in a Symbian phone (Nokia N8). It was at the same level of the other OS.
Then with the end of Symbian it was obvious the lack of support (only whatsapp was been updated frequently).
Moved to WP with a Lumia 930 and finally I had a lot of features I didn't had in the 808... but the same known issues: cant see the messages of the inbox, cant get back my crown as avatar, etc.

Well, I hope that WP10 really can use apps from other OS.
I would use here maps, sadly in my country doesn't show traffic.

Android 3.7.6 to 3.9.4 - 142K views / 18 m = 7917 views/mo


Sorry, I didnt see the date of origin of those threads.

Even so, Waze MUST make an update for an app that was been for 18 months without any upgrade. Google is afraid of MS, and why? they don't have a very reason.

The best I've managed (leaving my phone virtually untouched), the battery lasts only 26 hours. If I actually use my phone, then I'm lucky to get 10 hours out of it. If I use it heavily, I drain it in less than 4 hours. Even my old crappy iPhone4 was better in this regard (with a 3-year old battery).

If I'm using Waze, then the problem is obviously worse. With a 1-amp charger, Waze will drain the battery in about 3 hours. I've just gotten a 2-amp charger, so hopefully that's a bit better.

I'm really hoping that MS is able to tweak the OS to a more efficient battery user, and for Waze to improve it on their end as well.


I think this is pretty much on Waze. I can run Navigon and other navigation apps and if plugged into a charger, they don't drain my battery. While using the same charger, Waze drains the battery in under an hour.

The update solve the battery drain issue. Last weekend I drove for a total of 7 hours connected to a charger. My phone never lost charge (battery level stayed the same) and I was able to use Waze the entire time. Phone never got hot, warm but not hot. I have a high amperage charger and a good cable which is probably a requirement for any gps apps.

REally it's a shame that Waze let Google force them to drop Windows Phone. I've been using Waze for 2 years now, I never dodged an opportunity to advertise this app. I send my ETA at every single person I4ve a meeting with to show them how cool this is. But I can't fully use this with my own wife and sister because they are on windows phone and it's impossible to add a windows user as "friends" on Waze. It's like they did not have they app installed (but they have!).

First of all thank you for Waze app for wp8.

However battery drain is HUGE for L920 - GDR2 - Amber. I even bought better charger which gives me 1,5 A but my phone is dying when using waze after 3 hours. We really need a situation that charger can give more power to the phone that it uses. Otherwise I cannot use this (even I love it).

I've tried Nokia navigation and Co-Pilot and with Co-pilot there is no similar battery drain problem.

Also there is no way to manage gas-prices & facebook link do not work.

Ps. reply is not working (or it is not exist) when someone needs my comment for map problem.

Anyway... I am hoping that this great app will update in future and these problems will be solved.

Hi all, just checked that Windows Phone 8.1 is available for my Lumia 625, but unsure if I should update right now or not, as I read here that some users here had issues with Waze on WP 8.1 for developers.
Anyone tried Waze on WP 8.1 "official" (aka released for all)? I really enjoy this app, it's very useful for my everyday driving and don't want to stop using it for a too early update.
Thanks in advance for any reply.
