See how you can add multiple stops en route from the Waze app
Waze is one of those mobile applications ideal for traveling and configuring the route you must follow to reach your destination. Today we tell you how to plan a route with several stops in Waze.
While it is true that applications such as Maps or Google Maps can be used to set routes from our cell phone, in recent years Waze has appeared, an app that also facilitates navigation via GPS and is different from the others because it works in the community.
This feature of working in the community is none other than the fact that it is the drivers who use the application who provide information on incidents in real-time or any other traffic-related data.
Thus, Waze is one of the best alternatives to Google Maps, but it does not compete with it because Waze is owned by Google since 2013.
One of the most practical functions that Waze has is the ability to organize routes, but including several stops. Thus, there is no need to reprogram the application every time we have to stop at a restaurant, service area or go to see any monument on the way.
If you do not know how to plan a route with several stops in Waze we explain step by step how you can do it to be much more productive or productive when managing routes in the application.
