But do not hold your breath... we will be lucky if trucks, cabs and more are actually supported before this thread is one year old.

[edit]
Aw sh*t, this thread IS one year old.


Right. It isn't likely to be anytime soon. I was just pointing out that we don't know what they are going to decide to do and to say it will never happen is a good way to be wrong. :)

Country: US
Road Type: highways with HOV lane

Does Waze identify the difference in the traffic flows between HOV and non-HOV traffic? If not I think the higher speed from the HOV lane is throwing off the road segment average speed and arrival time at destination. Based on my use of Waze I believe it doesn't differentiate. At least in the SF Bay Area, the arrival time is always 5-10 minutes optimistic, and that's with highway travel (so no variable traffic light delays).

Here's an idea. It's a little bit crazy, but I think it may work:

Get 'private car' routing finished before jumping off on something new.

- Proper HOV support
- HOT lane support
- U-turns
- time restricted turns
- time restricted direction of travel
- differentiation between maintained gravel roads and 4x4 trails
- Ability to update incorrect GPS coordinates for addresses (since Bing takes forever, a small Waze hosted override database would work)

Most of these will affect any new type of vehicle routing you add as well. Let's get the bread and butter first before jumping to dessert.

Motorcycle mode : different traffic and time computation (all roads doesn't take the same time by car and by motorbike). In France, usable roads are the same for motorcycle and car.

We need your help:

Currently there is only one vehicle type in Waze - Private car.
All navigation methods in Waze are currently designated for the use of drivers who use private cars only.
Well... We're working on exciting stuff here at Waze HQ, but we need your help!

- Which types of vehicles should be added to Waze's client? (i.e truck, 18 wheelers, scooters etc.)
- which types of navigation would you like to see? ( HOV lanes, truck roads only etc.)

We're waiting to hear you all!

* Please elaborate as possible and state your country.


Ori


Country:India
Type of vehicle: scooter(2 wheelers)
Type of navigation: only 2 wheelers road.

For example I am attaching a permalink: https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&l ... TTTTTTTTFT

In above you can see there is a bridge named as Z Bridge which is just for 2 wheelers.

Regards

For example, bicycles. We know people use Waze on bicycles, so if we have a bicycle option for them to pick, I bet they are more likely to do so. Especially if it makes their icon into a bicycle ;)

They don't need to know the details that it behaves the same as if they picked "other" and we and Waze don't need to do anything beyond setting up the "other" option.


YES YES YES. I think at this early stage - especially because the S.O.P. in the United states is to specifically disconnect bike and walking trails from the driving roads, the idea at this stage should be to get faulty data away from private driving - and that means giving users the option to enjoy nav, map issue reporting, incident reporting, or reporting gas prices, while not accepting their speed data in the context of private vehicles.

It looks like a feature, quacks like a feature, and mostly lets Waze's intelligent speed routing get smarter.
