Can't seem to do long distance navigation

Postby Bigbear3764 » Mon Oct 22, 2012 2:05 am

Can your car go 1000 miles on a tank of fuel? Are you making the trip in one day?

About 1000 miles is most it will do. Was built for local commuting. Just set your destination for gas stops.

I set the route in Waze anyway. It's pretty hard to drive 700-1000 miles in a day for most people. 1000 miles @70mph is 14hrs without stopping. You're almost always going to have a start and end point for the entire day of driving within 700 miles, within which Waze is fully capable of routing.

Clueless.

Impact to routing server infrastructure performance (long routes have exponentially-increasing branches/options), changes required to routing algorithms may be necessary, etc.

No, but I would like an idea of how long and far the trip will be, so I can plan things out better. I'll have to use some other app or program for that instead.

Yep. Waze is not a general purpose nav app yet. The first paragraph in the App Store is pretty clear on the focus of Waze being your "daily commute."
