Get “Time to leave” notifications

“Time to leave” notifications tell you when it’s the best time to leave. They’re based on real-time traffic conditions and expected drive time.

To get them:

  • Make sure your calendar event has a navigable address in the location field, including street name, house number, and city.
    Note: If you see an option to Set address on the “Planned drives” screen, it means the address was entered incorrectly and no reminder will be sent. To set a navigable address:
    • Tap My Waze and then tap the event, or
    • Tap My Waze and then Plan a drive and then Set address
  • In your phone’s settings, check that Waze’s location permission is set to "Allow all the time" (Android) or "Always" (iOS) – Learn how
