not really.it's best when editors in your area know what they're doing. one day you get a very good route, the next you get crazy routes because some idiots changed turn directions in an intersection.it's free so i guess there is nothing much to complain about it. I just wish there is an option to buy a commercial map to use with it like Nokia/navteq or tomtom maps. i don't think i can trust waze yet when i go on a road trip 1500 mi away.
