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.

First, sign in to your Waze account if you haven’t done so already. Then, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Waze Live map
  2. Under Driving directions, enter your starting point and destination. Waze will provide you with up to three best routes
  3. Click your preferred route
  4. Click Leave now, change it to Arrive by, and enter the day and time you want to arrive

    Note: If you select Leave now, Waze will send you an instant notification on your mobile device. Tap it to start navigating.
  5. Click Save to app

Your planned drive is now synced with your mobile device. Waze will send you a notification when it's time to leave.

Manage your planned drive

You can view or change your planned drives from your mobile device.

To learn how, click the Android or iPhone & iPad tab above.
