Waze issues and oddities: anyone else?

We use Waze almost daily for commutes. Lately (maybe since December?), it has been:

  • sending us weird, odd routes. I ignore it and the time goes down.
  • wanting us to go around the block to end up on the same road we are on. I ignore it and the time goes down.
  • doing some screwy re-routings.

I’ve tried deleting it and re-installing it, and ensuring my app is up-to-date. Still wonky stuff going on.

Anyone else notice Waze oddities? Any recommendations for a different app?
