Per what I wrote, I was only responding to the underlined part which mentions the ability to notify on ETA change. When driving and the ETA changes due to updated traffic conditions, you do get a popup notification.

Not yet implemented, but was on the roadmap of what they'd like to do. The widget sorta does this now, just no alerts, you have to query it manually, and it only works for home/work instead of general destinations.

On the short term plan.

Already part of the system.
somburan wrote:4. Preplan trip with preset preferred ETA. Also notify (email) if anything (traffic jam, events, weather) that may impact ETA.

For the underlined part only, you do get a popup alert, but no email notification when ETA is affected by new traffic conditions. It would be a nice feature to enable 'autosend of ETA change if >x minutes"

Waze stores historical traffic data in 10 minute intervals by day.

First of all...thank you for this extremely useful apps. What a great idea!!

1. Find parking near by (with full/not full status will be nice...but how?)
2. Best gas price/Best food along the way.
3. Check major events at destination or along the way that may impact traffic.
4. Preplan trip with preset preferred ETA. Also notify (email) if anything (traffic jam, events, weather) that may impact ETA.
5. Store traffic history on server, and use 5 days traffic pattern (or 3 weekends for Sat/Sun...since weekend traffic may be different than workday traffic) to calculate route/time


Keep up your good work!!

Cheers.....Som

This exists but is not shown by default. See this post.
