The idea of Waze

Waze is similar to GPS software used to get the best route for your destination, but Waze goes the extra mile, it will redirect you in case of heavy traffic or other road disturbances. This feature of the app is what makes it special.

Once you open the app you will see the map for your location from there you can set up your destination then let Waze to its magic.

Destination set up

Before Waze can show you the shortest route to your destination, you need to select your ride either a car, taxi or motorcycle, this selection will affect the route Waze determines for you.

Waze will interactively tell you where to go by voice while driving, similar to other GPS devices and software. Beside English Waze supports many other languages, you could also control the volume of the sound and other settings.

After that you can go ahead to set the destination by searching for a location in the search bar or by clicking on the location on the map, you can also add stops along the road like gas stations.

Waze will do the math, it will calculate the total distance, expected time to reach your destination, best route and other possible routes and inform you about any road disruption.

Reporting road hazards

Waze depends on its users for information about road status for that reason users can report the condition of the road, for example, if there was an accident, heavy traffic, roadblocks, police, hazards like rocks or other hazards, you can also add your comment about the hazard or add photos.
