Correct, if waze can't comprehend HOV schedules/qualification, then HOV should be excluded. However, we are close to the point where waze can comprehend the HOV schedules. Then we will have to see when waze will be able to comprehend HOV qualification.Galahad2 wrote:Those of us who are toiling in the main lanes need to be routed around traffic blockages, but are being directed to the Interstate exclusively by Waze thinking we will be going HOV, when in reality from my house a better route might be found if HOV consideration is excluded. Once we're at I-95 already, yeah the best way is probably going to be through the bottleneck--but I've driven 5 miles already just to get to that point only to be told to drive down the HOV. If Waze can't comprehend HOV schedules/qualifications, HOV should be excluded. If you're on the HOV and see an open ramp (unidirectional ramps are blocked by gates when the traffic schedule obviates it), there's no reason you can't drive down it without being directed to by Waze.
