Welcome to Waze India


Welcome Wazer!

You're interested in Waze and wondering what kind of app Waze is.
You're using the app and wondering what you can do to improve it.
You're editing the map and wondering how to fix a certain situation best.

You're here at the Wiki of the India Waze community. This Wiki informs you on how to handle matters specific for India. For general information please visit the global Wiki pages or the Waze home page.

What is it

Waze is a navigation app:

  • with daily updated maps
  • maintained by volunteers
  • for free

World's largest navigation app maintained by us
There are many navigation apps, many of them have maps that are updated only a few times a year, resulting in outdated maps. Waze is different. Waze maps are updated on almost a daily basis. The maps are constantly updated by volunteers of our India community. And last but not least: Waze navigation is for free.

The app uses maps and your phone's GPS. Maps that are not already present on your phone are retrieved 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.

See our page on the Waze app in India and for more information on the app please visit the global Wiki page.

You're most valuable with your local knowledge. You can help us to keep the Waze map up-to-date.

New roads planned?
Sometimes data is still missing or not accurate anymore like speed limits.

Are there points of interest in your neighboorhood that could be interesting for Wazers as a destination like a gas station, parking, hospital, school and so on. Check if they are already created on the map and if not there is something to do.
