Can you still use Waze on Uber?

Postby adriansinger » Tue Feb 28, 2017 12:17 pm

Hi dear professional drivers,

How are you?

I wanted to ask you if you've experienced any recent changes in Waze's button inside Uber. Can you still open Waze directly from the Uber app? Has anything changed there the last days?

We'd be glad to hear any feedback.

Thank you!

I;m wondering about this too. I haven't been able to use Waze from either the Uber or Lyft apps. in several months. I've deleted and re-installed it a couple of times, without a positive outcome.

Thank you Diknup for your update. Could you tell since when is this happening more or less?

I would say since October of last year. After it kept happening on both platforms, I stopped using Waze and now use Google maps in the apps. It seems to work fine.

Thank you so much for your feedback Diknup, we'll look into it and see we can do something to fix it (probably not, because we don't have integration with Uber).

BTW, we'll be glad seeing you using Waze again ;)

Hello Fellow Wazers and UBER/Lyft Drivers.

I am a driver in Asheville, NC area. I started editing with waze once for the points. But I now actively edit because I am an Uber/Lyft driver.

I too had the issue of Waze just DISAPPEARING. I was somewhat :evil: on this happening. I did a multitude of things to try to get it back. Uninstalling, Logging out, Clearing cache, Etc...

I found if i uninstalled the Waze app.
Open Uber, go to my profile/settings/navigation selection. It would give me the option to Install from within Uber.

This fixed my issue a few time. Sometimes it would just come back all by itself. But since then i have not had an issue with using waze while using Uber/Lyft.

If you have a continued issue with Lyft not using Waze, try clearing your Cache from your Applications on Lyft and on Waze.

In the Uber app I default to Waze navigation only. The last day I drove was on Thursday evening in Los Angeles, and I had no issues Whatsoever. I am using an iPhone 7Plus with latest OS and app updates.

Hi Diknup,

Thanks a lot,

WAZE 4.23.0.4 for Android appears to have broken the ability of Uber (driver) app to open WAZE directly for navigation.
