Waze does not learn routes despite what it says, it learns destinations. Later when you start up Waze it will ask if you are going home, or to work, or to some other destination that it thinks you might be going to based on your patterns in the past.

You can drive your favorite route to work 1000 times, but the next time you ask for navigation to work, if Waze thinks another route will be faster (or shorter depending on your preference setting), it will suggest that instead.

Agreed , Waze doesn't learn your route, or pick the fastest in all situations, I get routed the same way to work but due to traffic lights I always go a different route, and it is quicker. By chance I saw a work college, he went the waze route and I got to work first.

However it is a great app.

Waze perhaps doesn't know the other route is slower. Take it every now and then and it should catch on quickly enough.

Why not make Waze a send to in the same way you can send to your car? All you are doing in this case if finding the location in Google Maps and sending it as a favorite to Waze. This seems to be a trivial add to make Waze a form or GPS or car. There should be no conflict at all and then we at least get real cooperation from one part of google to another!

SO I setup my perfect route within "MyMaps" with multiple stops along the way.

How can I get there?

We need to do something about being able to go from "Google Maps" or "My Maps" to Waze or merge the two competing products.

I agree with those calling for some way to get routing information from GM to Waze. I like using Waze on the road, but GM is much better at letting you plan out your route in advance in a web browser.

As an EV owner, distance travelled on the route is important, especially when a charge is needed somewhere along the way. I can't see the whole route with multiple stops and distances on Waze. GM lets me do that. But then I want to transfer that to Waze and let Waze do what it does best.

Just for the sake of not causing confusion, we don't ask for the "route" to be transferred. That would defeat the point of user preferences and waze functionality to designed for that purpose.
However, the following is actually what you're referring to:
https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=657&t=53556&p=1332270&hilit=multiple+stop#p1294788

Even when you drag a route in Gmaps, you introduce a stop point to the route - and that feature request is addressed in the above link.
