If you'e standing at the entrance of the house why do you need a GPS to tell you where to go?
Oh, and from the position of the UR on the aerials I can confirm that you are at the entrance to the house.

The same thing happens when you have a shopping plaza built with its back up against a highway, and a big parking lot in front: Waze navigates you to the highway out back and says "Here you go!" That's why, when mapping a parking lot, it is critical to run a segment right along the storefronts.

In this case, you might be able to solve this problem with a minor change in road geometry, or by giving him a driveway. (I'm not saying give everyone in the neighborhood a driveway, just this one case, to make this one Wazer happy.)

Waze's speed data is correlated to time of day*, so it takes time-of-day variations into account. If you're driving slower because overall traffic is slower, Waze's ETA should be accurate. 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.

* I'm not sure if it also takes into account weekday vs. weekend, season, holidays etc.

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:


Tualatin... is that nearby the Willa-METT River? Hahahaha. I lived in Salem for a time before moving back home; it took me about 3 or 4 months to pronounce things right out there. :lol:

I'd recommend landmarking that, it could be a useful visual reference. <With no sarcasm whatsoever>

I used to fly on the RJ (RC-135) and we did this all the time. Get a little hungry or bored on a flight? Park the bird in a cornfield and take a break! :-)
