Addtional Routing Issues

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Thu Jul 19, 2012 8:07 pm

Today I had an eta of 5:32 and I got the "new route saved you 18 min" with a new eta of 6:07. ?? Waze's math is suspect.

Then, after dismissing the dialog, the new onscreen eta showed 5:45.

Addtional Routing Issues

Postby CBenson » Tue Jul 17, 2012 1:17 pm

For the past few days I have been getting many popups telling me that the traffic has either cleared or built ahead and my ETA has changed. I am also getting many popups stating that due the change in traffic my route has been changed. However, when I get the route change popup neither my route nor my ETA ever changes.

What is different from the problems reported several months ago for me is that the route change popup will say that the route is changed, but the route doesn't actually change.

I do not believe that waze is currently working properly in regards to traffic avoidance. In fact for at least the last 24 hours, I see no evidence that waze is doing anything at all to route me around traffic. Waze seems to be simply routing me the way it would in the absence of any realtime information. This is despite an accident on my route this morning, many reports of traffic on the route, the freeway marked in dark red with low speeds listed and the popups saying that a better route had been found.

On my way home yesterday, waze clearly taking traffic into account in the routing.

This morning I had the same thing happen. Waze would popup with the message that there was a new route that purported to save me time but the ETA would be later. Again the route wasn't changed on my phone. However, if I asked for alternate routes, the best route did have an ETA earlier than the route showing on the phone.

Rerouting to avoid traffic is still not working for me. Waze still puts up a popup every once in while telling me a better route has been found, but the route and the ETA do not change.

I have noticed the same. Although I figured I just didn't notice the ETA change. The route never does tho.

I have noticed the same also. Same issue that was reported several months ago. I reported this issue directly to Ehud, founder an CTO of Waze today. Hopefully it gets some attention since this is very annoying and it's difficult to trust that Waze is working properly in regards to ETA and traffic avoidance.
