If you want to install and use the Waze Navigation & Live Traffic app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Waze Navigation & Live Traffic for your computer in 4 simple steps below:



Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here


Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.


Step 3: Waze Navigation & Live Traffic for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Waze Navigation & Live Traffic in the search bar and press Search. Click on Waze Navigation & Live Traffic application icon. A window of Waze Navigation & Live Traffic on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Waze Navigation & Live Traffic icon. Click on it and start using the application.


Step 4: Waze Navigation & Live Traffic for Mac OS

  • Not the same Waze it Once was

    By Mom Matters
    Even a month or so ago, I would have rated this app 5 stars, but something has happened to what was my best driving app companion. The issues begin with incorrect mileage estimates when you type in a place your are going that, as soon as you click on the place to get directions, change and sometimes in drastic ways and always for the worse. Examples - a place that it said was 136 miles away changed when getting directions to over 200 miles away...a place that it said was 9 miles away, when you click on it to press go turns into 14 miles away. It also is suggesting routes with lots of turns that are leading me in circles and when I choose to ignore their suggestion because I can see ahead there does not seem to be traffic, I go the normal straight way I always do and get there 5 minutes sooner than the estimated time from Waze’s indirect way. The app has become so broken it is upsetting because it used to be amazing! It also isn’t remembering routes and crashing, which is what prompted me to finally write this review because that ended up costing me about an extra hour of time yesterday since I was trying to avoid the turnpike (and it’s tolls) and unbeknownst to me, it re-routed me to take it! It’s also caused my daughter to end up on a toll road with no warning! Waze and I are going to have to part ways if they don’t fix the newly introduced issues soon - it’s just become completely unreliable:

    Update: Waze updates have been good and the reporting process is improved and there are less steps to get to the actual reporting - yay! When you fix the default address estimation from interstate (literally I get suggestions for MI addresses, and I live in Alexandria VA!). Previous: I've recommended this app to dozens of friends and helped many download it to their smartphones and set it up for them. I can't say however that I'm very happy about the latest version of Waze. The GUI is not what it should be, the # of improvements is about equivalent to the # of detriments. It's hard to cancel an instruction once entered, the screen going from side to side is not user friendly. And reporting hazards is STILL a 2-3 step process!!!! There should be the option for active wazers to have a "visible police" button, "car on shoulder" button "construction" button and/or various traffic buttons of our choosing on the map page that we can report as we go. Also, PLEASE STOP SEARCHING THE ENTIRE MAP OF THE USA WHEN I'M OBVIOUSLY SEARCHING FOR AN ADDRESS IN MY LOCAL VICINITY. That was an obvious upgrade improvement you guys should have included. I would give you 5 stars or 10 or 20 because I love your app - but these improvements really need to happen ASAP. Keep up he awesomeness Waze!! Plus your Customer svc and responsiveness is great too!
  • Most useful but some issues

    It is the most useful of the navigation apps because it uses the most sources for information and does a great job helping me navigate. Directions are given in a way to help locate the turn or offramp. Other apps often change suddenly into step-by-step directions or some form that I do not want to see. Waze stays consistent in the format of the split. Waze has a number of notifications about things in the road. These are good but also have weaknesses. It is hard to report that something was not accurate. At the point it is supposed to be there the option to indicate it was incorrect goes away. This option should remain for 2 to 400 feet after the symbol location. Most hazard reports are inaccurate. Most police reports are incorrect. This is frustrating because it such a good idea but the tool doesn’t really allow for good reporting. Stopped vehicle reports do not indicate in lane or side of road so they are usually pointless viewings of vehicles stopped somewhere having no affect on traffic. There is a great feature to go later on the time this feature cannot be used for some reason I will choose directions to the airport. Half the time I can choose go later and half the time for the same trip I cannot. I know the data is there. But for some reason the feature just vanishes. Make it easier to report.
  • Good at knowing where traffic is AWFUL at getting around it

    You wanna know where traffic is jammed? This app is wonderful for that. Want a route around? Avoid Waze. This app is useful for for ETA’s if you sync with your calendar, and to show you where traffic jams are. However, expect it to always take you through traffic jams. The most use I’ve gotten out of this app this app during traffic hours (aka the time you would most want to use this app) is zooming out to see the full map and then seeing myself how to get around the jam. Without fail, if I’m trying to get home from work, Waze will want me to take a Street that I know for a fact will be jammed. I decided to follow the directions twice thinking maybe Waze was smart than I am and knew something I didn’t. Both times I was backed up a solid mile before where Waze thought the real jam started it. And I’m talking I was in bumper to bumper traffic waiting for the light to turn 3 times before I got past a single block. Despite this, Waze insists this is the fastest route — it’s not. Waze also becomes unresponsive to traffic reports during peak hours it seems. You could report bumper to bumper traffic in a downtown street and Waze will only mark the small section where you are even if the jam stretches 10 minutes in front of you. You would think it would gather that you’re in a bad jam and find a different route, but it doesn’t. Your best bet is to zoom out the map, and try to find a better way yourself.

  • Annoying

    By barbara1289
    This app used to be the greatest, I would use it for everything. Now, it “fails to connect to server” more times then it actually works. It also takes forever to load if it’s not a route you normally use. I use google maps now more then this because at least it’s reliable and loads when I need it to. I sometimes wait almost 5 minutes for it to try and load to find me a route, only to have that annoying error message pop up that it couldn’t connect. Honestly, use google maps. Save yourself the hassle of this app.

    I used Waze to drive from North GA to Fort Myers FL. It told me of accidents, slow downs and hidden Police on the side of the road or hidden. It also kept track of my speed, which was helpful. Love Waze so much more than Google Maps!!
  • App gets confused

    Have had numerous issues with Waze this last week. Thought maybe I needed an update... nope. Can’t even get a route. Get one of two errors (1) can not connect to server or (2) failure. Please fix.

    Used to be an okay app, but now most of the time it just “fails to connect to server” so it’s mostly useless.
  • Awesome App...but

    I absolutely love everything about this app with the exception that it drains your battery FAST! I had an iPhone 7 and thought maybe because it was an older phone it drained my batter like it did. I recently purchased the new iPhone X s and no difference. I’ll still continue to use the app but please fix this issue? Thanks

  • Great app if I could hear it.

    Please please please fix the volume on this app! If I use it through car play I can’t hear it unless my radio is blasting. My wife’s speaker phone on Waze is actually louder than the app played through the cars speakers. Just please do something about the volume on this app, I’m begging you!!!

    I find having exit numbers as well as the exit name is a game changer when traveling in unfamiliar places.
