Been reading a lot of social media sharing with regards to another Waze update which you should bear in mind in order to keep you on a faster track. As everyone may know, Waze is a GPS navigation software app owned by Google. It works on smartphones and tablet computers that have GPS support. It provides turn-by-turn navigation information and user-submitted travel times and route details, while downloading location-dependent information over a mobile telephone network. Waze describes its app as a community-driven GPS navigation app, which is free to download and use.


Were you getting weird routes offered by the application which may lead to 2 – 3 times longer than the fastest or usual routes? The main culprit is due to the application’s update which they made recently that allows you to navigate your way through coding – which is definitely a great feature when used properly.


Make sure to register your car plate or the application will assume that your vehicle is always on a coding plate and would avoid restricted areas which will lead you to a longer travel time. Here is a step by step procedure on how to update your settings and fix this problem.


  1. Go to your settings which you would see on the upper left of the application when you’re looking at your destination history. Afterwards, click car details.




  1. Simply change your vehicle type from “Private” to “Taxi”.


Upon changing it to “Taxi” preference, your application should now offer the fastest route by default and you should be back to your usual Waze experience.
