Isn't there a limit of 500 miles on routes? It's over 600 miles Havant to Applecross so you need to split the journey into two parts.

It may be quicker than the fix lol.



I dare to be rude here, but it's not just london, its england and scotland too..
Try planning from Solent Road, Havant to Applecross, Highlands ( A trip i need to do in a few weeks time) and it's bailing completely... I can sometimes route from havant to Birmingham, Birmingham to Glasgow, Glasgow to Applecross, but never a full route, which is rather annoying :(

At least on the livemap i get a "Whoa! Something went wrong. Please try again later" message

At least you got a "route". Waze just times out in London at rush hour. Not that I'm bitter or anything ;)

Birmingham rush hour this morning as well. To be fair though, Waze did keep guessing and would have had me zig-zag via some crazy routes if I had followed instructions.

Yep, that would seem to be normal behaviour in just the time we need Waze most. If I were a new user trying Waze out for the first time and that is all I got I would have given up a long time ago.

Just to say that I have now experienced this myself. Well it wasn't really in London, returning from Croydon area to Watford area, so all I wanted was a route round the M25. But just got nothing from Waze until a good 30 minutes into the journey. Evening rush hour.

Just an update. There is no update. Waze are still looking at this.
