You should check the route before starting to navigate.

A few hackers from China who called PanguTeam tweeted about an iOS security flaw that gives them control over the app, and they can change routes to users. The horror scenario is that hackers will create heavy traffic and accidents while controlling the navigation app.

The hackers in their blog post wrote about 2 main ways to attack the Waze app, The first is by remote denial-of-service. The second way is manipulation of waze (There is a video in the blog post).

Most of waze technology in now implanted in Googles maps app, while Waze concentrates on Car pool features.
