Get time to leave notifications

Receive notifications from Waze when it's time to leave for a planned drive or upcoming calendar event.

When you enable time to leave notifications, Waze will gather relevant traffic alerts both around your start and end locations to provide you a more accurate ETA and routing information.

To receive an alert, ensure that your phone Location Services for Waze is set to Always, then select your Notification type in the Planned drives panel of the menu.

If your notifications aren't coming through, please check the following:

Android

  1. Ensure that you have enabled the feature. Tap the Menu , then Settings . Scroll down and tap Planned drives and set Connect Calendar to On.
  2. Make sure you enabled notifications from Waze. To do so go to your device's Settings and tap Apps & Notifications > Waze > App notifications.
  3. Verify that your calendar event has a navigable address, including a street name, house number and city:
    1. Tap the Menu .
    2. Tap on the Planned tab.
    3. If a planned drive does not have an address properly set, a Set address button should appear next to it. Tap it to modify the exact address.
