[ Live Map] is a browser-based version of the operational Waze maps. It displays current traffic and reports from Wazers using their client app. It is commonly used by map editors to view the navigation instructions that will be provided to the client app when debugging map issues.
=== Zoom control ===
[[File:LiveMap-plus-minusZoom.png|border|left]]In the lower right corner plus and minus buttons are displayed. Press the '''plus''' to zoom in closer and press the '''minus''' to zoom out from the current map display. The mouse scroll wheel will also zoom in and out on the map. There are 15 zoom levels on the Live Map from the street level all the way out to continent level.
=== Search box ===
[[File:LiveMap-searchLiveMap_Search.pngPNG|border|right|Search box]]In the Search/Navigate box click on '''Search''' if it is not already highlighted. Place the mouse cursor in the text field and enter the address or place of interest, then press find. If the description entered has more than one match, a list will be displayed. Search results come from a Google Maps search, and could differ from the Waze App search results. If the desired match is not visible in that list, add additional parts of the address to limit the search and press find again. Once the desired destination is visible, select it. A pin will be placed at the location and the map will recenter on the pin.
If the live map is only displaying blue water everywhere, it may be necessary to zoom out and move the map to the continent desired. When the map is near a particular continent that does not have the destination desired, it may be difficult to search for it without first moving the map to the correct continent.
=== Navigate box ===

Enter the locations with the origin (or '''from''') on the left top and destination (or '''to''') on the right bottom to see the best possible routes between them. Use the opposing double arrow between the two text fields to reverse the origin and destination points and view the route in the opposite direction. Locations can also use points of interest and coordinates (longitude and latitude) as well. This box will also automatically get filled up when using the [[#Navigation points selection box|navigation points selection box]] to pick the origin and destination points directly from the map.

Select one of the routes to see the turn-by-turn instructions for that route. Press the '''<''' link to return to the original list.
===== Share routes =====
Once the route options are displayed, a link to '''Share routes''' is displayed at the bottom left of the list of route options. Select the link and the permalink to that location is displayed where you can copy and paste it in an email or instant message to someone. The routes are not saved in the URL, but when the link is looked up in the future, it will recalculate the route options at that time.
This permalink will always show the two locations, but the other two permalink icons on the Live Map interface may not always show the same results.
