Delaware to Montana/Unable to plan Route

Postby KarmaTrain » Thu Sep 14, 2017 3:44 pm

Good morning. This is the first time I have accessed Waze via my PC. Hopefully I am posting this in the correct forum. I apologize ahead of time if I'm in the wrong area. I will be driving from Delaware to Montana. I attempted to map/route my trip on my iPhone and I am getting a response stating that it's unable to go beyond 1000 miles. I entered it via my PC and I'm not getting a specific error message, just the "Whoa, something went wrong. Please try again later"
Just want to verify that the app cannot go over 1000 miles at this time and is the same for the PC as well?
By the way...I ABSOLUTELY LOVE WAZE!!!!

Thank you,
Wendy Haines (KarmaTrain)

There is indeed a limitation for long routes with Waze because of the real-time traffic factor in the algorithm which apparently makes it unable to handle longer distances. The routing in the Livemap on PC mimics the one from the App, so the restrictions are the same.

Waze support suggests that you break your trip into smaller segments by using waypoints of your choice, Waze will find you the quickest route to each one until you are close enough to your final destination. See:
