Plan a drive

You can schedule a drive for a future time and get a reminder when it's time to go.

Before planning a drive, make sure to turn on 'time to leave' notifications – learn how.

  1. Open Waze 
  2. Tap 
  3. Tap Plan a drive
  4. Tap Add a drive 
  5. Search for your destination in the Search bar 
  6. Choose the time and date at which you'd like to arrive to your destination and then tap Save

Waze will remind you when it’s time to leave, based on real-time traffic. The notification is also based on where you are at the time, but only if you allow Waze to use your phone’s GPS location.

You can view your planned drive any time in the Menu panel under Plan a drive.
