60 Mph/97 Kph

Postby Seasider » Sun Jan 23, 2011 9:23 pm

Esteemed Wazing friends

Over the last 4 or 5 weeks an anomaly has presented itself to myself and several other Wazers whilst using this brilliant app on the road.

It would appear that Waze is completely unable to display 60 Mph on phone clients, certainly in the North West of England.

I know this is not really a massive glitch in the grand scheme of all things waziness, but it has been bugging me and a fellow wazer who I work with greatly. To the extent that we have tried 4 different mobile phone handsets in 8 different cars (6 of which have cruise control) whilst running 2 and sometimes 3 stand alone Sat Nav devices.

The results of our extensive geekery are thus - Waze doesn't do either 60mph or 97 kph. With cruise control set at 60 Mph and 2/3 sat navs displaying a constant 60 Mph and 2 mobile phones running waze in the vehicle, the client devices display a speed that jumps between 59 and 61 Mph (or 96 and 98 Kph, we tested both speed displays).

We have looked for possible explanations in numerology even, but can find no reason why this would be.

Has anyone else noticed this phenom, or can anyone explain to us why Waze doesn't display 60, as it (as a point of principle now) is DOING OUR HEADS IN!!!!!

Thanks gang

I just confirmed this a few minutes ago. Strange! As much as I tried I couldn't get the speed display to say 60 mph.

Same here using Android. Could not make it hit 60. Odd that no one noticed this before. Makes me wonder if there are other numbers it won't show.

For Waze, 60mph = speed of light: it can go under it, and over it, but never exactly...

Not wishing to admit too much, but as part of our testing process (high geekdom indeed), we've studied the speed display and can confirm it displays all other speeds except 60 up to and including low 3 figure values.

How on earth did you achieve this on UK roads? ;)

That would be telling, but long night shifts and totally empty and straight motorway may have had some part to play, and of course I was referring to our testing of the kmh display, your honour.

I've noticed this too but thought it was my car's cruise and not waze it self.
