Waze: The urban mobility platform Waze released a 2021 retrospective based on data, habits and behaviors of drivers using the app for navigation. Based on a survey, the company gathered facts about the use of the platform in Brazil. Eleven thousand adults were interviewed in eight countries between October 27 and November 9, 2021, crossing the information with navigation data extracted between January and November 2021.
