The Waze application has a number of special codes that will change the operation of the application in different ways. The table below shows the currently known codes and what function they perform. Some of these codes appear inside the application, but are unknown what exactly they do. These codes are listed as non recommended, so please do not use them unless directed by Waze Support representative or a Waze Champ in the forums.

To enter a code, open the Main menu from the Waze application. Choose Navigate and enter the code below into the search box for the destination. Some functions require the application to be restarted, others are immediate.
