How to Plan a Trip Using Waze on Android and iPhone – MUO – MakeUseOf


Waze is among the most popular navigation apps on smartphones. Here’s how you can use it to plan your trip before you leave.
Anything can go wrong when planning a trip, especially when you’re running late for an appointment. That’s why it helps to prepare for your trip in advance.
Waze helps you do that by scheduling your trip, reminding you when it’s time to leave, and making it easy to start your trip once in the car. This article will show you how to plan a trip on Waze and why you should.
Waze allows you to prepare for your trip in advance by scheduling it in the app. The app reminds you shortly before it’s time to leave, based on its estimations of how long it will take you to get to your destination.
When you’re ready to leave, Waze will start your trip at the tap of a button. That means you don’t have to input your destination at the last minute. Waze even helps you find gas stations along your route.
The "Plan a drive" feature is especially helpful when you’re going to have a busy day. You can schedule your trip ahead of a meeting or interview to limit the stress and anxiety that come with preparing for trips of that nature.
This is one of several ways that Waze makes life easier. For example, you can stream music on Waze while driving, so you can use one app instead of two, which allows you to focus on the road and limit distractions. Not sure which popular music streaming service to get? Our guide will help you decide whether Apple Music or Spotify is best for you.

Waze will show you your trip details on the Plan a drive page, including the time and address of your planned trip. Follow steps one through three above to view this page.
Tap the three-dot menu button to the right of your trip details to access more features. From here, you can tap Send location to share the location of your trip with people in your contacts.

Going back to your planned trip, tap Routes to preview the route options available for your trip.

Alternatively, you can switch to Map view at the top of the screen.
When you’re ready to leave, tap My Waze in the app, followed by Plan a drive, then tap your trip or Go on the screen. Waze will automatically open the navigator and start your trip.
Planning your trip on Waze eliminates any stress and anxiety associated with traveling, especially for important appointments. When you’re running late, you can open the app, select your trip and Waze will start navigating, rather than inputting your trip details at the last minute.
