It is definitely nice to see wazers on the map again. Though one congested corridor I saw was difficult to read due to all tue wazers and traffic jam reports in the area. 5/805 split for the SD folks out there.

1341 wazers in NY area at 5:30p today.
573 reports.
1407 jams.

Enough to be pretty useful, and a handful of map editors keeping it all together.

Cheers,

Graham.

So with that many users, how well does it work for rerouting, or is the map in DC still not mature enough?
Worked great up until last week, when it just started sending me straight into jams. The jams are all well documented on the map though. The problem with the map in DC is not that it has not been well edited. The problem is that there are many many time based restrictions in DC. Those time based restrictions can make waze almost useless depending on your commute.


Really any GPS can be made useless, by the restrictions in DC.
I left there on a Sunday a couple of years ago, and had to just find a highway and head west to get out of town before my Garmin stopped sending me to closed streets....

How do you see the amount of Wazers in your area? Or is it another NA server thing.

Not sure why they're separate, but I suppose there's a reason. Either way, these numbers are basically double what they were less than a month ago, and 4x what we were seeing 9 months back.

NJ is split amongst a few US Census Bureau Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and that is what the Waze areas are based off of. (Or was it is the Combined Statistical Areas, CSAs? Same impact either way.)

Seems to be the first 5 or so seconds for each statistical metro area you travel through. When I travel long distances I'll get that pop up on occasion, I assume when I hit each new region. If you only stay local, then you'll only see the initial pop up for "entering" your home region.

As far as I remember, in the US it is based on metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) as defined by the Census Bureau.

Jason, I don't feel so bad about Knoxville now seeing your evening numbers. At 10 pm eastern:
28, 2, 3. And that used to be a high count for here around rush hour!
