Do you mean that Waze is not supposed to work like Tomtom's IQ route? It will calculate with the average speeds any hour of the day? This meens that Waze will overestimate the ETA during night and underestimate during rush hour!?

Waze isn't going to consider time of day when calculating ETA, however, it's supposed to consider average speed of the segments on your route.

This was not working properly and was reported to Waze support a few weeks ago. I had a 15 mile route, and Waze was showing a drive-time of 18 minutes, but there was a couple of miles on the route that had an average speed of 2 MPH. Obviously, this should have added an hour to the ETA.

I think an announcement was recently made that it has been fixed, but I haven't had a chance to see if it's working now. Obviously not.

Are you getting the same results on the client?


Unfortunately I get the same ETAs on the client!!
The route can change if there's any black, red or yellow marked traffic jam, but if there's not it will allways be the same route and the same ETAs. But from the description of Waze, it will know the average speed on every intersection at every time point of the day. We can see from the screenshots of this route that it's not working as intended!

Yes, all capitals. PM me with GPS coordinates of top-left and bottom-right corners of rectangle covering Amsterdam to have it sooner. But my fault that I wrote the previous comment here. It's running off the topic pretty fast. ;)

Using our Wazestats ;) http://wazestats.drajsajtl.cz/ba_week.html

Cool:)
Do you know if I can find that for other cities too?
Thanks

We are now trying to have it for some european cities, e.g. Paris is cool:

Holidays are here - apparently the majority of drivers (including these using Waze) literally escaped from the city, there seem to be nearly no traffic jams anymore, just an occasional slowdown.

Two days ago, one more silent early Sunday morning, 3 static wazers to be seen (except that they were actually moving, just the recent "less than 10 km/h" bug applied to them?) and here-and-there some car on the road. Initial ETA for a 20 km drive throughround the city was 30 minutes and was continuously falling down during the 21 minutes' drive. The drive never takes that long on a Sunday morning.

Support, finally at least any word regarding this problem? It lasts already for 1/3 of year!! :!: Still considered fixed?

Fourth week with the same problem.
It's difficult to get the Waze staffs' attention!

Yet again the day-of-week problem, or just a few hours' glitch?

Yesterday, a silent Sunday morning, some 8 wazers in a 250 sq. km city. But all ETA times (upon multiple drive-throughs along various roads, some 60 km) are by 50% higher, just like on Mondays, and are rapidly falling while driving through usual jam areas.
On the early afternoon, ETA's seem to be nearly exact.
