[SUPPORT] Routing doesn't consider Day of Week

Postby islupepa » Thu Mar 15, 2012 1:35 pm

Waze doesn't seem to consider time of day/night when calculating ETAs.
It should take less time to get to your destination when driving off peak hours than during rush hours.
At least if you drive in a city like São Paulo, with its 19 millions inhabitants.
I have an example where it shows that something is strange with the calculated ETAs. I have chosen to show the same route at different time of day/night to show my point.
The route goes from the airport straight into the "heart" of São Paulo.

It's really unrealistic that it should take the same time driving this route during off peak hours and during rush hours!!

Yes, there are 1300 unique active wazers in our city ;-) Anyway it was working correctly before.

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.

I've had the same problem - static ETAs for all routes 24 hours a day. But it looks much better today morning.

EDIT: It is different, not better.

That's a good 'problem' to have!

At some point Waze may roll out the official 'Near you now' which gives the count of current Wazers, reports and jams in your metropolitan area. I believe that the is only active in the USA, in certain cities presently.
