Alternate route doesn't give advanced notice

Postby Cueball3 » Fri Jun 14, 2013 2:23 pm

I have run into the unfortuante situation (a few times) where I am not forewarned well enough in advance to take an alternate route. Yesterday, I was traveling ~50 mph on a road and was only given seconds to make an exit to avoid a long delay. I missed the exit and sat in traffic for 15 minutes with no other alternate routes. :x Is there a way to receive advanced warning of alternate routes on the navigated route?

Not really. Waze gives me notice of a changed route to avoid traffic as soon as waze calculates that the alternate route is significantly better. Unfortunately, that calculation and, thus, warning sometimes occur right when you are at the turn off of the current route and, thus, you don't have time to change lanes or make the turn.
