A further bump for this thread, to which I contributed before Waze's average speed camera zone warning began.

We've not got a situation, especially through long stretches of roadworks, where the app notifies me that I'm entering an average speed enforcement zone, but then also tells me where each of the cameras is! Since they're measuring my average speed, their position on the road is irrelevant, and the announcements are a distraction and an annoyance.

Bumping this old thread will have 0 effect on anything I'm afraid.

You have to wait for the map to update for the change to take effect on average about 2 days

I know Behnam and he knows by now, he asked that question back in September 2016, please avoid responding to questions which are over 6 months old.

Hi,
That is not the case, even after updating the map nothing happens.

Average ('point to point') speed cameras are becoming more common in my area. At the moment, some of them are marked as fixed speed cameras (start and/or end position), which is something, but I can't help feeling there could be so much more.

The idea that I'd like to float is the following:
    1. Users could identify the start, finish and average speed of the relevant zones via the app, with fine tuning in WME per the current fixed speed camera procedure.
    2. Once the zones are known and locked down, Waze would warn drivers of the upcoming areas as it would a regular fixed camera.
    3. I expect Waze would be able to relatively easily calculate the Wazer's average speed for the zone (as they already do for calculating navigation times?).
    4. Once this is known, Waze calculate how the Wazer is tracking with respect to the average speed over the zone and display if they should take action to avoid an infringement. E.g., if the Wazer has been exceeding the posted limit by 10% for the first half of the zone, Waze should be able to display the average speed that the Wazer would need meet over the second half of the zone in order to correct this (i.e. how much they would need to slow down by) and the Wazer could gradually and safely reduce speed until the two numbers (current average speed and required future average speed) meet.

Obviously real-world examples would be more complex that this, but in my view it would help take one more thing off the drivers mind. Anyway, I'm sure it's more complex in reality than it is in my head, but I would love to see this as a feature!


Is there an official reply from Waze Team to this post?
There will be such an alert or not?

Waze staff doesn't reply to these forums which are mostly community managed. The guidelines (link at the top) explain where the correct place is to make suggestions to staff, this forum is just to discuss it with the community only and nothing else.

Average Speed Cameras is a functioning feature for the client and the WME which was enabled in selected countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Spain, UK, Australia, Morocco, Slovakia, Russia, Germany, Czech Republic)

This 2014 thread which was opened before it was added is no longer relevant and will now be locked.
For further questions regarding ASC in your country, please contact your country's community directly by finding the right forum here:
