I disagree. Yes, almost all of them are at least 5 months old at this point, and some over 1,000 days old,...

Additionally, I still occasionally see some new ones coming in - entered using the LiveMap.

When this happens, the link to the location, and any text you entered shows up in the email you receive.

But the routes don't.

It would be helpful, if the user's own UR's would be listed in WME's My places, nearby the "Areas I can edit | Drives | Update Requests". Noone would ever complain anymore, that "his/her" debug UR has been closed too soon...

Except that on some roads I'm occasionally driving much slower than their average speed. In such cases the ETA is totally unusable and I'd appreciate an option in the client for specifying my personal preferred max speed.

(I'm getting pretty of-topic here...)

If you're driving slower than prevailing traffic for some other reason, I don't see how any other nav is going to give you a better estimate.

While using many "offline" navis (and route planners) I was often able to define my driving speed profile (city, outside, freeway). I'm aware it is less important with Waze's historical data, but was pretty good customizable on roads where the road profile was not the speed limiting factor.

bgodette wrote:I may be misunderstanding foxitrot's suggestion, but what I gather is he'd like to be able to set a Max Speed and have ETA take that into account if the route uses segments where the current/historical average is higher than that.

Exactly.

harling wrote:Waze's speed data is correlated to time of day * * I'm not sure if it also takes into account weekday vs. weekend, season, holidays etc.

It seems to take all single week(end)-days into account and distinguish between them. (I'm not sure whether the discovered shifts by 8 hours and later 24 hours were already fixed.)

Upon Waze's advertisement (Outsmart The Memorial Day Traffic with Waze) it is apparent, that Waze aims and tries to take also seasons into account... and must have prepared (or selected) data for this particular day (at least 1 year) in advance. But the seasons off course do differ between countries. Thus I've contacted them a few days later with a question, whether they would be interested in gathering specific dates for particular countries. They replied with their well-known silence :|

It also does not take long-term holidays into account, probably for the same reason. Which causes huge data pollution, with rather long catch-up phase during+after summer holidays.

Yeah, the UR should have been "failed to recalculate after I left the route" :lol:

Unfortunately the UR sometimes does not contain exactly the same route, as which was displayed in the client. Rather one long prior to or after a recalculation.

WTF? Google reckons it's a town in Slovakia.

Žiar nad Hronom indeed is, even Waze is aware of it :) https://world.waze.com/livemap/?zoom=8& ... yers=BTTTT

I don't feel at all guilty about putting "not identified" on this one.

I'd also like to know, WhoTF & WhereTF & WhyTF did post that UR :?

Just a wild guess: if the straight line was placed absolutely randomly (GPS error?), maybe someone in ZnH, Slovakia complained for being (temporarily) thrown into Central London, UK?

[Off-topic] Can someone (a mod with with sufficient editing rights?) try to explain me, why kaeoboy's post viewtopic.php?p=303411#p303411 does not display the quotation in the usual yellow rectangle??
Is the post witchy or ill-wished? :?

Thanks! Apparently it keeps for a post.
Have you enabled it? It is on now.
