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.
