Road trips almost always involve unforeseen pit stops. This can cause you to get off the mark and cause massive delays. However, relying on Waze for navigation will completely cover this issue.
The popular driving app has a handy feature that lets you add a pit stop to your current route to make your ride relatively straightforward. This method of adding a different destination during navigation works just as well for Android and iPhone users. This fast process is described in detail below. Read on to find out more.

With the summary unfolded, tap one of the four icons below the "Add Stop" tab. Parking spaces and petrol stations can be reached by tapping the "P" or "Gas" symbols. You can search for specific stops by tapping the magnifying glass. After choosing a pit stop, just tap to add it to your current route.
While the steps between Android and iPhone have varied slightly in the past, Waze has now optimized the feature to make the process almost identical on both platforms. The main difference now is the need to confirm your addition to Android by tapping "Add Stop" in the confirmation message that appears.
In the past, you had the opportunity to quickly remove a pit stop by simply tapping the target stop off the dashboard. Then select "Remove" to leave the route. Unfortunately, this option has now been replaced by the "Do not show" option, which does not appear to remove the pit stop when selecting.
Hopefully, Waze will fix this issue with the next update. We'll be sure to keep you informed as soon as this bug is resolved.

So, if you want to add another stop to the existing pit stop, you will need to either arrive when you finish the pit stop, remove it from your current route (which is currently not working), or create your own route.
