Plan a drive

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.

  1. Open Waze
  2. Tap 
  3. Tap Plan a drive

  5. Enter your destination in the search bar 
  6. Tap the relevant destination

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.
