An optional segment slope parameter or a "too steep" checkbox and corresponding client preference might be necessary for some vehicle types.

...and detouring shorter lower-ranked roads over much longer (and usually similarly fast, but often slower) routes over higher-ranked roads.

An economic route type was promised many months ago IIRC, and should IMHO be implemented regardless of the planned low-road-types-pruning replacement.

While a good idea, what's to stop any average driver from using that mode?

A ticket for driving ilegally?

AFAIK (and have just re-tested, at least on the INTL infrastructure) the "Avoid Highways" option actually avoids just Freeways, for at least one year long. Hope this helps you/them.

Peter, it's always useful to split or edit the quoted text a bit...

Eticketlizabeth, this whole discussion is not about which car icons should be available to be displayed on top of the map (as is your taxi). It's about which vehicle categories should be supported (length, speed, weight, no. of passengers, etc.) and what routes they should get suggested according to the restriction shields along the real roads.

Sent from a touch display, which took care of perfectly scrambling my thoughts.

Country: Sweden

Would love to see height implemented into Waze. I drive a small truck (3.10 meters high), and sometimes Waze routs me places I cant drive. For example a tunnel that is too low. This would be beneficial for us couriers with trucks, Waze really helps me finding the fastest route otherwise.

A feature where you could manually enter height of tunnels along your route would be fantastic as well, as some tunnels might be temporary.

Vehicle types/ Navigation types

Postby fvwazing » Thu Dec 06, 2012 6:14 pm

Vehicletype: "Other vehicle" as a catchall for everything not foreseen. "Other" vehicles do not generate traffic/maperrors while they move around.

Vehicletype: cab/taxi
Roadtypeflag: taxi allowed. Taxis (with permit) are allowed to drive thru certain pedestrian zones. So - will a "pedestrian boardwalk" with taxis enabled be routable for taxis? Oh, and this is not allowed during shopping-times so time dependency please.
