I'm not a Waze developer so all I know about this feature is what's in the tip video. :) However, you might want to double-check the turn restrictions on your preferred route, especially near the area where it tells you to take a different path. I have had cases before where Waze stubbornly refused to use a path that I thought should be faster and it usually wound up being a bad turn restriction that prevents Waze from going the faster way. I imagine that a disallowed turn would probably take precedence over your preference.

Thanks for the tip.
I had the route corrected sometime ago, but now i discovered that somebody else made changes on a couple of roads on my way and added restrictions that shouldn't be there, waiting for the next live update to see if it is fixed.

Despite other users' insistence I've never seen it do that. The only way I've ever understood the feature is that it learns your destinations, not routes. Besides, no matter how much you like your route, if Waze doesn't make you go that way, that way probably isn't very ideal. ;) Once you've gone that way a few times and there is sufficient average speed data it will pick it *if* it makes sense. It may not make sense.

This is a really old thread. I've added the "learning answer" to the FAQ: ... _routes.3F
