Your drives are visible online but only to you.

Nothing is stored on your phone, everything is on some Waze-server.

You can see your drives when you open the editor on the waze-website (www.waze.com in the US and Canada, world.waze.com everywhere else). Click the "My Drives"-tab.

Currently you can not get any statistics on your drives. I wonder what you want to use those for - if one route is faster than the others this route will be your preferred route for this moment. Waze routing adjusts by the minute and there is - by design - no way to store one particular route. As of the "learn my preferred route"-option: it is misnamed and should be called "learn my destinations".

Will my iPhone (or Android et al) store historical data on my phone?

I'm not really keen on sharing my exact travels with the public in such a way that they're attributable to me, but I would like to see historical data of my trips. The way around this is to keep a local history on my device, yes?

What I'd love to see are the answers to questions like how fast my routes actually were & eventually to use that data to program into my phone MY preferred route.

Out of the realms of possibility?

I don't have a "My Drives" tab. I'm in Australia, so I'm in world.waze.com Is that the prob?

(I've said this a few times actually, so I hope you guys don't roll your eyes at me laboring the point.) I drive the route I know, I don't blindly follow what waze tells me to do because it simply isn't practical. If waze told me to drive off a cliff I won't do that; similarly if it tells me to go a stupid way I won't do that either. What I'd love to know is my trip times so that I - ME - I - can see for myself and use my own brain to evaluate how long each way is taking historically. Maybe waze is the wrong app for that or I can use pen & paper, but I don't care enough to be bothered. My trips to and from work ALWAYS take between 30 and 45 minutes barring exceptions but I have about 3 different major ways that I (repeat I) choose to drive & I'd like to know which is fastest. I'd try Waze's fastest routes, but they rarely are for someone that knows their roads so that's a fail. So now I'm thinking waze might still be good for traffic avoidance and warnings on the routes I drive.

Anyway - who in the heck wouldn't be interested in historical data??? It's interesting! If waze doesn't have the resources or storage, then let the mobile app keep the data & give me a way to look at it on my computer.

* click "Live Map" link
* click "Update Map" link
* click on "Drives" tab

'My Drives' was shortened to 'Drives' in new WME, and the tab is only accessible from the WME editor. You must log in with the same username & password you use for the Waze client to access the drives.

Also ensure that you use a supported browser like Safari, Chrome or Firefox. IE requires a plugin, but I would not recommend using it.

I feel like a dummie, but where are the previous drives located. I have tried on multiple browsers and I see no information on my dashboard or elsewhere about previous trips. I also tried to access the editor and it takes me back to the very minimal homepage again.

You need to make sure you are on the correct server. Also, judging by your username here on the forum, you haven't officially signed up to Waze.
Go through the sign up process, pick a username and password and your points will transfer over, not sure previous drives will though.
