Overall Opinion: Google Maps works fine. What3words works fine Waze appears to work fine, gets my correct location but when I choose a destination it says: "No GPS. Showing approximate location" I also get "waze is connecting to gps" but of course doesn't. This seems to be a common theme with Waze users and there seems no end in sight for a solution. Despite these problems being posted on the Waze forum it seems no one in Waze actually care?
