It means that if you’re organized enough to associate locations with calendar appointments, you can ask Waze to take you there with but a single prod from inside the calendar app.

The navigation list within Waze will also auto-populate with destination info poached from appointments. Waze is eager to highlight the feature is easily disabled from within your device’s settings — you know, if you’d rather that Miley Cyrus concert date be kept as discreet as possible.
