Do you have toll roads disabled?

You might just have to get to Windsor then fire up Waze from there.

But if you route from Ann Arbor to Niagra Falls, ON, waze routes you through Buffalo. You have to cross the border whether from Michigan or New York. Why would waze route you south of Lake Erie?

But from Ann Arbor waze routes the long way south of Lake Erie to Niagra Falls, ON in Canada.

But it does the same thing on the live map.

I don't know. Looking at the live map, waze gives me two alternate routes from Ann Arbor, MI to Hamilton, ON one through straight at 241 miles and 3 hrs and 36 minutes. The other 442 miles and 6 hrs and 49 min going south of Lake Erie. So the delay at the border appears to be much less than the added time to stay in the US. Routing to anything farther east including Niagra Falls, ON, waze only routes the longer route. There seem to be freeways connecting the entire route through Canada. Waze has no problem routing from Hamilton into New York. So I don't why waze insists on staying in the US at the cost of adding a couple of hours of travel time.
