The Waze App itself requires an internet connection to work properly (download maps, get alerts, report road speed, re-route due to changing traffic conditions, etc).

There is an API for the app that allows you to create links that contain GPS coordinates see https://www.waze.com/about/dev for more info.

It's very simple, but nobody teaches it right...

1 - Open Waze App in your smartphone
2 - From the menu, chose "navigate"
3 - Insert the destination
4 - Chose complete address on the screen
5 - On the pre viewing screen, chose _ "send this location"
6 - In the lower left corner of the screen, press the icon with "the 3 dots"
7 - At the "send link by"- choose "copy link"
8 - Now, close Waze App and open your QR Code favorite App (generator)
9 - In its App QR Code, paste the link and delete all character that doesn't look like this: http://waze.to/Ir/h6gycfqj49 - only http link matters.

It's done! Simple and easy.

Enjoy.

QR code for locations and process them via waze

Postby RoySegall89 » Sat Jan 11, 2014 8:47 pm

Evening you'll.
One of my problems with navigation with waze is navigate to events: wedding, bar mitzva, rock concert etc. etc. Although the event's ballroom is listed in waze the problem sometimes is to search it and prey i selected the proper place. For example: the ballroom directions page come with map and arrow that if you didn't served in the army you be won't able to understand if waze directed you to the place properly.

The solution is simple: The couple of the wedding will create a QR code using waze(we need waze in order for GPS location identification) and then paste it in the order. When i would like to navigate to wedding all i need to do instead of typing the name of the ballroom i'll just click on a small icon that will positioned near to the microphone icon that will pop the camera and allow me to scan the code. After scanning the code waze will know where he need to lead me.

Not every one in the world have Facebook or just don't want to create event in Facebook. Using QR code will be faster and will not need internet connection by default because the GPS position will be set in the QR code.

Is there an API for using waze's map and pull the GPS coordinates from there?
