How to Change Navigation Settings

The Lyft app doesn't have built-in navigation, but instead connects to the navigation on your phone.

We recommend using Google Maps or Waze because they use real-time traffic info to determine the best route.

Change your settings in the app

To edit your navigation preferences:

  1. Tap 'Settings'
  2. Tap 'Navigation'
  3. Toggle the 'Auto Navigation' on to let the app switch back and forth between your Lyft and navigation app. You can also select a preferred navigation app.
