Not now, as I discovered there's a different behavior for Android and iOS. I'm currently using the configuration on mobile devices assuming Waze was installed without the web experience (2nd bullet on https://developers.google.com/waze/deeplinks/) e.g. "waze://?q=" for search queries and ""waze://?preview_venue_id=" if an ID is available.

The desired effect should be to be able to open Waze then to navigate. Somehow this works for both OS without the UL. Adding UL in the deep links just opens the app.

What I have originally have in mind was using the Waze's page instead to do this and let the user's have the web experience (as a nice fallback). Thank you for sharing this to the team!

- Wouldn't it make sense to use deep links to offer the possibility to start a drive from that URL when it's open on a smartphone?
- Is this supposed to be an alternative to deep links in anyway or just a way for Partners to display on their website via an iframe?


This is a work in progress - an experimental page that will be officially released within a few weeks. We do recommend you use this link for venues, and it will include all of the features and capabilities you raised. Nice find!

Thanks for the clarification :)
I guess you can give an FYI to the team working on it that Google Search results are already giving those links to anyone, so more people may find it in the near future.

I was actually looking into my family's restaurants which are also doing advertisements via Waze Local Brands, and checking more deeply for what existed out there, I suddenly saw that on page 3, so it's still "hidden" for now. ;)

Regarding the /ul? links, I would like to report that localization is missing (e.g. it/ul? for Italian) and this is not optimal for countries where many people still don't speak English (unfortunately).

Another "problem" is that Waze doesn't provide any error if the venue ID is wrong or not existing anymore, it just shows your current position. Someone deleted the place I've created the link for long ago (I hope it wasn't me, by mistake :roll: ), and the link didn't work, I almost thought it was a beta problem.

@redviper26 I don't know if you read those other topics, too, but I think this may be an interesting change which shouldn't be much effort to achieve.

A simple wildcard search for the favourites, too, just like in the normal location search. (-> using the deeplinks of course)

Waze deep link unstable

Postby world_jdw34usi » Fri Mar 15, 2019 12:35 pm

For example:
https://waze.com/ul?q=Hee+Lai+Ton+Centr ... vigate=yes

Symptom
1. Randomly showing no result found while using this link
2. Sometime while showing no result found, press places then can find the result
3. Restart Waze app then try again with below link, then can find the result

Attached youtube url to demo the issue.
https://youtu.be/DwxwKSBJoxY

Above video showing is Android 9 with latest Waze.
Same problem happens on my iPhone X with iOS 12 also.
Actually I'm facing this issue since at least 4 months ago and facing same issue over multiple devices types.

Hello and welcome to the forums.

Please note that we are just a bunch of volunteers here, we cannot do anything to the app. If you need to file a bug report, you should use Waze support form:
https://support.google.com/waze/answer/ ... ic=6262587
I think deep link issues fall into the "Other" category of the form.

Nevertheless, your issue seems like a network timeout as only the first attempt fails.

You can try to add GPS coordinates to your deep link. Please check the parameter from the documentation and coordinates from the map.
https://waze.com/ul?q=Hee+Lai+Ton+Centr ... vigate=yes
but I dont' think there is much that can be done from outside the app.

Deepl links used to have venue-id parameter as well, but it's no longer documented.

Actually is not only first attempt fail.
Sometime it might happens first 3 attempt is success then 4th attempt failed, 5th attempt success.

Very weird.

erm... so venue-id parameter is deprecated already?

Thanks for your info, I did submit to waze support already.
But this issue happens since really long time ago, quite annoying :|
