WME's backend takes care of recomputing time-slot transit times for any modified or split segments. This is likely why saves involving node removal can take a while.kpouer wrote:Maybe, and on very long segments, I don't expect a lot of traffic jam as they are not in urban area usually.
There is still my other problem on traffic data on very long segments if the geometry is changed (and also because I don't know what happens with erratic network connections.
Routes with fewer segments are preferred by routing over a route with more segments even if the route with more segments seems to save some unspecified amount of time. Some percentage of the secondary route being a faster route is caused by this.kentsmith9 wrote:The net result for routing is no different though. The routing engine will still account for the time change over the entire length of the segment the same as it would for ten 5km segments with the stoppage at the same point.
FYI we've seen occasional peeks at traffic highlighting in the app showing sub-segment highlighting. Using highlighting as a thin justification for segment splitting is likely to be eliminated "soon".kentsmith9 wrote:However, the net result for the visual will be different. The 50km segment will possibly never show slow traffic when you plot the route and look at the initial traffic. Only later will you run into the stopped traffic. With short segments, Waze can warn the driver of a slowdown of traffic because the segments are shorter and will be detected as different from their average.
