I tried searching and checking the wiki to see if i could answer my own questions, but i was not able to.
1) Is total distance calculated only if i select a destination, or if i have the maps open and just driving around will it still calculate. I don't always have a fixed destination when I go out. Often I am out with friends and i just drive around aimlessly so putting in a destination would be pointless. I do like to have the GPS up and running anyhow just for the sake of it even if i know where i am going. Is the KM driven calculated only if i set a fixed destination and go there and/or simply driving around aimlessly
2) If I or someone else adds a traffic issue or something of the sort, how long does that info stay in place? Does it stay as "standstill" for instance until someone drives by and says that there is no longer any problems or is it on some kind of timer so that after say 30 minutes it will disappear on its own. I would like to know in order to know how accurate the info would be if lets say traffice was reported 30 minutes ago, is the traffic still bad or has it cleared up yet etc.
3) I know i am still a baby waze and cannot report gas prices yet, but i always use gasbuddy. Is there a way to integrate gasbuddy into waze somehow. Either as a ready only so it would pull the prices from gas buddy and display on the maps. gasbuddy seems to be very popular and is pretty good with reported prices.
4) I just opened Waze and went to navigate/categories/gas stations .... it searches and comes up with nothing. I live in Montreal, a rather big city. Is it because i am a baby waze and cannot search for the nearest station?
It finds gas stations if i set the search parameters to foursquare, but if i keep the search under Waze it finds nothing. Even some other categories under the waze search comes empty.
I think that is all for now.
