    How to change navigation settings

    Navigation in the Lyft app (built with Google Maps) determines the best routes for rides. Drivers can easily navigate their routes without closing the Lyft app. Lyft navigation also provides access to real-time traffic reports!

    Change your settings

    To update your navigation preferences in the Lyft app:
    1. Tap 'Settings'
    2. Tap 'Navigation'
    3. Switch the 'Auto Navigation' option to 'On'. This allows the app to switch between your navigation preferences while driving.
    If you choose to use the Waze navigation app, you’ll have to switch between apps while navigating.

    Navigation troubleshooting

    If you're having issues with navigation in the app, make sure the Lyft app and your device are updated to the latest version. Learn more about phone software recommendations and settings.
