Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this, but I just want to report an issue, and the "issues" forum said explicitly it wasn't the place to post bugs, so...

I was driving home from work today and Waze had me exit the 75mph, 3 lane freeway and follow the 45mph, 1 lane frontage road with stop signs for 8 miles. I was in full view of the freeway the entire time, and the traffic was fine, all the way up until about the 8 mile mark, where I would have gotten off the freeway anyway.

Then, instead of following the frontage road to my exit, Waze told me to take a 35mph side road.

I felt like someone was messing with me.

If someone from support would like to follow up on this, I can certainly provide more details via email.

^^ Or do a re-calculation.

I noticed this happens most of the time after the Do you want to drive to pop-up.

After a route has no menu ETA

The menu ETA will only appear after pressing some sort of button.

I also noticed routing oddities on my work route from zip codes 44278 to 44446. No accidents or anything, Waze routed me off a 70mph interstate in favor of 45mph back roads with about 6 more stops than my typical route. It also said my route was going to be 1 hour 2 minutes whereas it should be about 48 minutes.

And although the text is quite a bit larger on my Galaxy S4, I like it that way.

I've checked the Live Map and it's routing poorly too. ETAs are way off if a highway (freeway?) is involved. That tells me it's not the app but the back-end server.

For my return, it is showing double the time--usually shows about 1:10, but now showing over 2 hours--with nothing notable on the route.


Same here for me driving home from work. ETA was off by about 15 minutes. I wonder too if it's the app or the server.

I agree, but I had very strange routing and ETA calcs this morning BEFORE I upgraded, as well. I suspect something is misbehaving at the server side.

Navigation was atrocious this morn... Should have been 7 turns to work including freeway. Got routed about 18 turns all through side streets and added about 20 minutes to my commute. I checked my settings and the map and all is good.

Firing up the new version and being able to see street names now on my Droid DNA? It's like I just got a whole new toy again. Thanks!
