Display dimension

The display can be shown either:

  • 2D - in an overhead two dimensional view
  • 3D - a somewhat three dimension view of the map where the items up close look wider and more objects can be seen at once when farther away.


The map display can be set to three different modes:

  • Day - The main map is light in color; typically best for daylight hours
  • Auto - Waze automatically selects between the two modes depending upon time of day
  • Night - The main map is dark in color; typically best for night time hours
