This can be problematic when there's a difference in the maps between Waze and Google maps. What if Google's route drives over roads that Waze doesn't know about, or aren't in the same location in Google's database vs. Waze's database, or Google has a different idea about turn restrictions, etc.?

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.

That's assuming Waze is better at routing than Google Maps is, which is debatable. In many cases of personal experience, Waze doesn't get you there in the shortest time possible, especially on long routes. And there's no way to modify a route in Waze to avoid a part of the route or to travel via a certain city/point on the map.



Sometimes personal experience is better than machine intelligence. The ability to force a route is a desirable option.

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.
