Different routes to iphone & android

Postby AgedNerd » Fri Jul 27, 2018 8:28 pm

This morning a friend was getting ready to drive home from our house, and pulled up the Waze routing. Waze found our location, and the target location fine. Then it proposed a route with a circuitous route on her iPhone. When I checked the same routing on my android phone (same time, same location), it gave me the more direct route. The problem showed up at the beginning of the trip, where Waze for iPhone routed her unnecessarily south, adding 3 miles and 2 minutes to her trip. For illustration (using Google maps), here's the route Waze gave me:
and here's the route Waze gave her
https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Hawks+Hill+Court,+Lafayette,+CA/Marina+Cove+Cir,+Elk+Grove,+CA+95758/@37.9197994,-122.0960275,14z/data=!4m19!4m18!1m10!1m1!1s0x8085638d0a7899a1:0x2f230714633264bc!2m2!1d-122.1090885!2d37.9354328!3m4!1m2!1d-122.0895157!2d37.8977116!3s0x80856226a449252b:0x418996d58de12fa6!1m5!1m1!1s0x809ac88ae4c2abc9:0xad8b952575d1659b!2m2!1d-121.4664927!2d38.4055548!3e0?authuser=0 . We had Waze recalculate a couple of times just to make sure this was really happening. We ended up giving our friend written directions for the first couple of miles for her trip, expecting that by that point Waze would re-adjust and take her directly home. I'm just confused and disturbed about this, since I've been a bit evangelical about extolling Waze to my friends.

Any explanation, fix for this situation? :shock:

Different settings on options which affect routing? Dirt roads, difficult turns etc?
