How To: Use Waze's 'Add a Stop' Feature to Save Time & Money on Roadtrips

Use Waze's 'Add a Stop' Feature to Save Time & Money on Roadtrips

Road trips almost always include unforeseen pit stops, which can take you way off track from your destination and end up causing massive delays. But if you rely on Waze for navigation, however, this issue is totally covered.

The popular driving app has a nifty feature that lets you add a pit stop to your current route to keep your drive relatively hassle-free. This method of adding another destination while navigating works almost exactly the same way for both Android and iPhone users. This quick process is explained in detail below, so keep reading further if you want to learn more.

Adding a Stop

To get started, open Waze and input your destination as you would normally do. Once your navigation is running, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to pull up the tab containing your trip's summary.

Next, things will be a tiny bit different depending on if you're using Android or iOS. If you're on an iPhone, tap on any of the three icons next to "Add a stop." Parking lots and gas stations can be accessed by tapping on the "P" and gas icons, respectively, and you can search for specific stops by tapping the magnifying glass. After you've decided on your pit stop, simply tap it to add it into your current route.

If you're using an Android device, start by swiping up from the bottom of your screen while in navigation mode. From there, simply tap "Add a stop," then use the search field to find the location that you'd like to add. Once you've found the stop you'd like to add, just select it and it'll be added to your current route.

Removing a Stop

If you wish to remove your pit stop, access your Waze dashboard by either swiping in from the left edge of the screen, or by tapping the magnifying glass icon in the bottom-left corner. From the dashboard, find the stop you wish to delete and tap on it. From there, tap "Remove" to quickly remove it from your current route.

Please note that Waze only allows one stop to be added to any current route, so if you want to add another stop on top of the pit stop you already have, you'll either need to arrive at your pit stop, remove it from your current route, or create a separate route for it.
