Speed limits are in the long-term plan for Waze, I believe. It's an industry standard at this point to include speed limit data. But that's a different topic for a different day.

And don't even get me started that my 30mph minor highway is listed as a major highway on waze.... that's another argument.

"Highway" is just a word. Ignore it. We (I) put a lot of time and research into the function that road types have in the routing system. If you want Waze to do what it's supposed to do – avoid traffic and give you a better route – that's how it has to be.

It's becoming an industry standard at this point. Most every other GPS provider is putting speed limits in, so Waze is, in that category, behind.

It's an interesting idea, but it would be akin to showing where stop signs and traffic lights are in the app – kind of a waste of resources, because it's not really relevant to navigation (as opposed to, say, a "no left turn" or "one way" sign), and Waze will account for it naturally in its automatic detection of traffic speeds and so forth.

Waze does not currently have any feature to remind users of traffic laws in any particular jurisdiction, though it's an interesting idea. But I imagine, if anything, it'd be speed limits we see in the app first.

Since Google and Waze share data you would think they could pull the speed limit data Google has on the segments its mapped out.

I don't see why speed limits should be added. I know it's been discussed a lot, but it really doesn't have any bearing on navigation. Other than navigational server selecting fastest route.

Apparently people want to KNOW when they are speeding so they can slow down? I guess looking down at a speedometer and speed limit signs is too hard to do nowadays.. :roll: :mrgreen:

Yeah, I know it isn't completely relevant to navigation, but it would be a nice feature to have.

I do have to hand you credit for the speed limit idea. That would be AWESOME! Much easier to know what the speed limit is if I miss the sign or there was no sign to pass.

Turns on red

Postby HiroHamadaE85 » Wed Jul 16, 2014 10:44 pm

I'm not sure what everyone else would think of this idea, but one thing that I had been thinking about was adding turning on red restrictions. Obviously, we can't prevent a Wazer from turning on red if they're not legally allowed to, but it might help with Wazers who aren't sure if this is allowed at an intersection. In Michigan, left turns on red are allowed regardless of whether the origin street is a two way or a one-way, so long as the destination street (the one being turned onto) is a one-way going to the left. I feel as though many folks don't know this is legal when it is. Frustrating to sit behind someone when there is no traffic coming from the right, and I can legally turn on red.

Hi, there is something new to display speed limits. Other navigation have speed limits in the basic equipment.
