Waze 126.96.36.199, Wiko Cink Five and Peax, android 4.1.2
New user here and I love Waze for the traffic updates and radar traps, but when I started using nav I was astonished at how unreliable the GPS connection is. I don't think Waze is at fault, because Google nav was unreliable in the same manner. If you believe either Google or Waze nav, I spend a good third of my road time crushing thru the fields and forests within a mile or so of my actual route. Our phones are Wiko (Cinq 5, Peax). I suspect that it's either phone or android related. We tried putting the phones way up on the dashboard by the defroster vents but that didn't help.
Waze does sometimes screw up when it insists over and over that I go back to the indicated route instead of recalculating based on actual position, or it recalculates for so long that I lose patience and reboot. Those seem like Waze issues, not phone or android.
I sure hope help is coming soon before all my friends, to whom I have recommended Waze, start complaining to me.

Alsace, France. Wiko, OnePlus One, and Motorola phones. Our Wiko phones have very poor GPS. To run Waze, avoid Wiko phones.
