Waze settings - fastest or shortest ?


Active Member
Can anyone please advise what is the best settings for Waze - shortest or fastest.

I am new uberX and fastest setting sometime comes up with surprising route.

I didn't use the shortest, what I understand that shortest takes you from streets instead of main road is it correct ?

I have the fastest route selected but always try to have a quick look at all alternative routes to get the clear picture.

If not much difference than the initial route, I always prefer to go through main road rather than streets. It saves fuel and less effort.

Definitely fastest.

You make more money going from pickup to destination fast.

You make less money if you take more time to go a shorter distance.
