So, this Wiki informs on Waze in the BeNeLux. For general information please visit the [ global Wiki pages] or the Benelux Wazeopedia [ Waze home page].<br /> __TOC__==What is it== <!--T:13-->Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. There are many navigation apps, many of them rely on maps that are updated only a few times a year, resulting in outdated maps and wrong navigation instructions. Waze is different. Waze maps are updated on almost a daily basis. The content maps are constantly updated by volunteers of our BeNeLux community. So, signs along the road asking you to switch off your navigation app are not for Waze. Waze has the most up-to-date road information, for this Wiki not yet readyfree.<br />In <br />The app uses maps and your phone's GPS. Map information that is already available cached in your phone and information that is retrieved from the meanwhile please continue Waze map servers via the internet. It is possible to use Waze without internet connection while driving in areas where your phone uses already cached maps, but the best navigation experience you got with an internet connection. The data usage of the app is moderate. The [ test of the ANWB] mentions 3,9 MB for 75 KM.<br /><br />For more information on the Waze app please visit the [ legacy wikiGlobal/Main_Page global Wiki page].<br /translate>
