Waze now tells you when to leave, thanks to its new Planned Drives feature | TechCrunch

The idea here, explains the company, is to make it easier for users to manage their time and schedule more flexible to-do’s, whether those are errands, road trips, or other outings.

 

The feature can also optionally integrate with your calendar and Events, which is even more useful. In these cases, once Waze is given access, it can automatically create Planned Drives on your behalf then send you a push notification alert when it’s time to go.

 

Meanwhile, even those Planned Drives you enter in manually are also designed to be a “set it and forget it” thing, says Waze. The app will automatically make smart adjustments to departure times based on real-time traffic conditions – there’s nothing you need to keep track of, after the drive is entered.

 

To use the new setting, you first enter in a destination, and then click on the new “Waze Planned Drives” icon from the Waze ETA Panel which opens. The Planned Drives screen appears, showing peak traffic hours along your route. Here, you’ll tell the app when you need to be at your destination. If it’s the first time you’re using the feature, you’ll also want to make sure you allow Waze to send you reminders so you’ll get the alert when it’s time to leave.

 

Turn-by-turn navigation application Waze announced this morning a handy new feature that will make it easier for those who are planning to drive to an upcoming appointment, meeting or other important trip: Waze Planned Drives. The option allows you to tell the app when you need to reach your destination, and it will then alert you as to when you should leave, while taking into consideration things like expected traffic conditions, aggregated traffic history, and more.
