One day *before* it opened to traffic? No wonder people want to try iOS6. :-)

Yep, I was expecting the update to happen a couple days after it opened but it was right when they went to that wonderful period earlier this year when we saw weekly updates. But I never saw any UR's complaining about it. I don't think Waze tried to route anyone as the lanes had no traffic data at all to use until people started driving on the road. So it appears to me that Waze just ignored the road until it started getting said data.

Oh and this is in an area where when the DOT recently closed an intersection I was getting UR's the day after it closed complaining that Waze tried to route them down the closed off-ramp. And when it opened back up a week early (during the July no-update fiasco) I was clearing several complaint UR's every day about Waze ignoring the re-opened intersection. My local Wazers don't hesitate to complain about bad routings due to road construction so I don't think it was a problem.

Hmm, if this were true it could be useful, but I don't see how it can be. I added plenty of little used roads that waze will use that have scant traffic data at best. I would think that waze would use default speeds until it gathers enough data. Maybe if the default is slower than the actual and slow enough to make the alternatives seem faster, then you wouldn't get routing until the real traffic data accumulated.

That is my understanding about how it works.

I'm back. Apple Maps suck, and the new Google Maps just isn't as good as waze. I'm sorry I ever left. Never again.
