Waze updates the pre-trip screen to offer information added to that of the trip itself. Once the update reaches all users, the maps app will offer all available routes and incidents that delay routes.
Using a free GPS navigation app often leads to an often heated discussion: Google Maps or Waze? These aren’t the only apps that let you reach any point in the world using voice guidance, but there’s no doubt that These are the most used. And they are updated frequently, as is the case with the latest novelty that has just landed on Waze: it now offers more information before starting the journey.
Alternative routes, traffic conditions and real-time information
Currently Waze already offers different information depending on the location of the next destination from the loading screen allows you to view the chosen route with the possibility of selecting a different departure time; and it also has lower accesses to alternative routes, to share routes and see the route. This changes with the last change on this screen.
As Waze reports, the driving platform has deeply updated the screen before starting the journey with much more information related to the chosen route. In this way, the traveler not only gets the most precise planning (always according to the system), Waze also offers all alternatives, traffic conditions and incidents in real time
Through the new loading screen, Waze aims for the traveler to have a holistic view of their trip instead of having the best choice based on distance and traffic. The map will show the different routes with the chosen one highlighted (like what Google Maps shows), it will offer real-time data of the different routes, it will understand the reasons for choosing one or the other route (traffic jams, tolls and other incidents) and other information related to the planned trip.
The idea of Waze is that every traveler gets all the available options at a glance so that let him choose according to his needs. All of this is accessible from the screen before starting the journey: this greatly facilitates the taking into account of the different road conditions.
Because we do not always try to arrive as quickly as possible, that Waze offers the different options of the route directly and without having to dive between the options it is an improvement for route planning. And if you don’t want any complications, just continue as before: select the recommended route and you’re done. This update will reach all users starting today.
