Sign says 90 miles to Houston, app says 76 miles. What gives?


Um....Waze is more accurate than TxDOT?

OR your destination isn't actually as far away as the location that TxDOT is using for the sign?

UR for a long-standing pronunciation issue. This is local humor.

Problem: pronunciation of tualitin


City name is pronounced too-ALL-uh-tin, whereas Waze says it "too-ul-A-tin" But it's spelled "Tualatin." :lol:

Yes, not too far. And yes, you pronounced it perfectly like a non-native there. :)

(I guess they want Waze to route based on the train schedule as well...)

That will be technically possible. Someday. viewtopic.php?t=10489

This is probably a jolly editor post also. I noticed this yesterday. https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... TTTTTTTTFT. He has been pretty busy, and I don't think he is through yet. There are a lot more parking lot lanes to do in this shopping area!!

Posted from the middle of a parking lot: "i have no idea where it WANTS to go but it's not what I put in!"

Hmmm, if it thinks you are traveling in one direction that's the direction the route on ANY GPS is going to start off in...
