[SUPPORT] Routing doesn't consider Day of Week

Waze doesn't consider time of day/night when calculating ETA

I also agree that something has changed but the results that we are now seeing are still not as we would expect. I am still wondering if Waze is having some issue with the data on the routing servers, that service the same Wazers, not being properly in sync.

Waze doesn't consider time of day/night when calculating ETA

Today, I had it pop up a notice telling me the ETA had been changed twice and then it actually rerouted me. I've never had it reroute before. Something has been improved in that aspect.

Thank you guri211 for backing me up!
This is the third week with this problem!
It looks like the problem in Brazil is a little bit different!
You actually get different ETAs depending on week day, but the ETAs I get on Sundays are the ones I should get on Saturdays and the ETAs I get on Mondays are the ones I should get on Sundays.
This also means that Waze is predicting bad traffic on Saturday mornings.
Think it looks like that the whole week but it is easier to see this behaviour on weekends.

ETAs are totally out of average reality. It looks like Waze routing server is ignoring day of week.

WORLD server, Slovakia:

Friday 07:42: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10259654/Frida ... 074228.png
Expected ETA at 08:00 is 23 minutes, actually it should be 18 - 20 minutes.

Saturday 07:15: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10259654/Satur ... 071553.png
Expected ETA at 08:00 is 23 minutes, actually it should be 13 - 16 minutes.

Sunday 07:16: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10259654/Sunda ... 071634.png
Expected ETA at 08:00 is 23 minutes, actually it should be 13 - 16 minutes.

Monday 07:17: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/10259654/Monda ... 071721.png
Expected ETA at 08:00 is 23 minutes, actually it should be 30 - 40 minutes.

Here in Slovakia we have the highest ETAs on sunday mornings (WTF?) instead of mondays. Also during the whole sunday, ETAs are higher than should be.

Saturaday and sundays should be the days with lowest ETAs. It has changed to sundays and mondays. So monday is the day with lowest ETAs now!! The ETAs are not matching the week days!!


Still not corrected!!

Waze calculates with daily averages, soo you can actually see a difference between a sunday and a monday.
However, you can not see any differences between peak hours or in the middle of the night within the same day.


Too quick to judge! Sorry!
Since we didn't receive any post that it was fixed, I assumed that it wasn't!
I have verified it and I seems to work again:)

It also implies the granularity is 10 minutes, but that may just be the widget asking for ETAs in 10 minute intervals.
