They prefer Maps in every way except Waze hazards features.

The other upside to Waze is the volunteer editors. If there's an error in the map and the editors in that region are on the ball, you can probably get it fixed in a day or two (the map gets regenerated every 24h so it's not instantaneous)

Getting stuff fixed in GMaps can take a month or more.

Sometimes much longer: I've lived in the current area for a couple years, and they still have not fixed my suggestion that a road near my house is not forbidden for drive-through traffic. It used to have that restriction some years back, but Maps still refuses to route me through the far end of it.

I still remember when I moved from near Google/Apple to another part of the country within the last decade. Holy shit, what a difference in quality and response from the respective companies between the two.

Yup, so I run both simultaneously. Waze on the phone screen, maps on the car screen. Only maps is ever used for navigation and I have my privacy set to never store trips / data and I don't have Maps logged in to a Google account. Waze forces you to login to get alerts or submit updates.
