5 Uses of Waze You Never Knew Existed

Waze is a subsidiary company of Google, who acquired it in June 2013, that provides satellite navigation software on smartphones and in cars via Car Play or Android Auto.

Waze users (“Wazers”) can report accidents, traffic jams, speed and police traps and blocked roads directly from the map, and provide a far more dynamic accurate picture of the road network that navigation provided by Apple or even Google Maps.

There are a multitude of customisation options, including crazy icons for your car (the Woof Wagon!) and a huge list of custom voices for navigation.

Waze has gone far beyond providing voice-guided navigation and real-time traffic updates; instead, it has come up with unique solutions that make life simpler for us all. I look at 5 uses for Waze you might not have even known existed.

5 Uses of Waze You Never Knew Existed

1.Real-Time Roadside Assistance

Waze is well-known for providing drivers with efficient routes to their desired destinations, but it has also introduced a feature to enable drivers to report car breakdowns in real-time and allow others to view these reports, giving them the chance to lend assistance if they possess relevant skills or resources.

2.Connecting Social Events with Smart Navigation

Event planning today involves much more than choosing dates, venues, and catering; Waze bridges the gap between hosting an event and guiding attendees directly to its location with one simple click. Integrate an event from Facebook or other event platforms into Waze and attendees can use Waze to navigate directly there with just one click!

3.Warning for Known Issues on your Route

Waze has developed its navigation system to alert its users about potentially hazardous areas by including crime data in its system, serving as an early warning alarm when passing through high crime areas. In November 2023 Waze also added crash history alerts, to notify you of crash-prone roads along your journeys. If your route includes a crash-prone road, Waze will show you an alert before you reach that section of your journey.

4.Promoting Local Businesses

Local businesses may now connect with customers through Waze by marking their business on the app; increased visibility can drive customer traffic, giving an economic boost that may help support local economies.

5.Reminding You to Leave on Time

Waze is an effective way to plan your drives ahead. By simply entering your desired time and date of arrival, Waze will remind you when it’s time to leave, taking into account real-time traffic conditions. It can also integrate in with your calendar to give you upcoming event notifications.
