Ok, thanks for the explanation. That makes sense, though Waze should really be designed to be able to fall back on other road types if there isn't a connection. Oh well, I guess I don't have any options. I was hoping to use the "pick up" option so those I'm visiting can get an ETA.

True. Usually the problem isn't that waze won't return a route at all, but rather that waze routes well out the way to stay on the interstate. I'm not sure why waze can't route to Boston, there has to be interstates from DC to Boston.

Note that you can use the send option to share your drive if you don't need to get the destination location from the person that you are providing the ETA.

Thanks. Yeah, I'll probably send it once I get past the problem in CT. But by that time, I am most of the way there. Oh well. It won't be the only time I drive up there. Maybe when I go next year, Waze will find the route. :)

I'd like to confirm exactly what's different between the circumstance where a route is returned and where it isn't. Could you confirm that under your navigation settings that "Avoid toll roads" and "Avoid major highways" are not checked and that "Type" is set to fastest (I also have "Dirt roads" set to don't allow, but don't think that should make a difference here)?

That was it! I had avoid toll roads marked. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to want to give me any alternate routes... routing server timeout error. So it wants to take me the route I really don't want to go. And it's strange that if I put in a stop in somewhere like Hagerstown, MD (it would keep me from going through DC), it shows the stop as a flag, but the route never changes. Am I doing something wrong, or will I just have to ignore the directions as I drive until it finally changes to the route I want?

Did this issue ever get resolved? Yesterday I tried to route from my current location in East Norriston, PA to my home in NW CT. Waze could not find a route. To resolve it I chose to route to Waterbury, CT then after about 45 minutes of travel I was able to reroute to my home.

Could you provide some further details? Is the origin "East Norriston" or "East Norriton"? Can you provide the general destination? Waze can find a route for me from East Norriton to Winsted, CT.
