Waze in Pakistan

Bugs and limitations

Although we think Waze gives the best possibilities for navigation, it knows some problems and limitations as well. Specific for Pakistan are the following:

  • The map needs to be improved
Due to the status of the road network and the yet small community, the map in Pakistan is not of high quality everywhere. However, the current editing community is working hard to improve the map. You help already by driving with Waze on! And if you are in for an adventure, you might add new roads to the map, or even become a Mapeditor.pngWaze Map Editor.
  • Long distance routing
Setting a route over long distances puts a lot of weight on the servers. Depending on the map quality, you can expect routes with a maximum length of about 1500 km. At this moment, maximum route length will often be less in Pakistan*. If you request a route and the calculation time is too long, you'll receive an error saying "Routing server timeout" or "no route found". We recommend breaking up longer routes into several segments by choosing intermediate destinations.
* Note that we are currently upgrading the road network to get better and longer routes!
  • Known issues in the current app version are listed on the support pages

Despite these limitations, we love Waze and hope you will do too!

Wishing you fun and happy travels with Waze in Pakistan!
