Be prepared, drive with Waze
Waze directions aren’t meant for emergency or oversized vehicles.
One area where Waze loses to a few competitors is speed limit alerts. There simply aren’t any! A big advantage is the navigation screen, which has a simple interface and shows driving speed. When you type in the destination, all you get is a pop-up screen with distance, ETA, and trip length (time).

One of the best features in Waze is ‘share drive’. It lets you connect to other ‘Wazers’ on the road, making it a powerful social platform to engage with the community. Unlike competitors, Waze uses incredible algorithms to learn your preferences about navigation, alternate routes, and other choices. With Google’s backing, this was pretty much expected.

Additional Features

Waze also accepts voice commands to give you hands-free control. It helps you focus on the road while interacting with the app for navigation information. Audio prompts are loud and timely, making it an ideal choice for drivers who don’t like being distracted.

If you think the ‘share drive’ feature is a bit too much, you can set your profile as ‘Invisible’. This way, you won’t appear on other people’s mobile screens. You can still set a radius to get alerts about traffic events, ensuring you don’t miss any important information about the journey.

Using Waze, set color schemes, gas station preferences and choose from different voice options, such as Elvis and Boy Band. These features aren’t available in other apps, such as CoPilot GPS and Komoot, making Waze both a navigation app and an interesting social GPS solution.
