Re: Avoiding certain streets?

Seems it would be easy-ish to add a map edit section where users could add bridges / bridge heights and clearances, no? I have started using wave with my motorhome, but this would be very helpful!

Motorhome Guide

Postby sparky112 » Wed Sep 14, 2016 7:38 am

We have been using waze for over a year and we find it invaluable for car journeys however last week end we used it in our Motorhome and although our motor home is small and we saw some beautiful things on route fortunately we met nothing coming the other way as some roads were only the width of our camper we are purchasing a larger Motorhome in November and no way would we attempt these roads in a new vehicle does your app cover size of vehicles for such occasions or it would be great if you could put the size of your vehicle into the app

Re: Truck Navigation

Postby SweAcMe » Thu Mar 31, 2016 10:18 am

Hi!
Regarding Truck/Camper mode function.
It would be much appreciated if Waze could change veichle to a veichle type of Truck/Camper.
A first step could be to be able to maxmize the speed of the veichle. In my country a car with a trailer has a maximum speed (legaly, that is) of 80kmh.
The problem I found is that when you plan a route, Waze assumes that your car can run as fast as the signs says and miscalculate the ETA.

Otherwize I really like Waze! Keep up the good work!

Re: WAZE for truckers

Currently there isn't although it's been requested a few times already. Not just for legal routes, but also to get correct average speeds for trucks and to avoid that trucks report too low speeds for roads where cars can drive faster than trucks

I see this issue discussed and a comment that something was coming soon. I just did a trip to move my daughter to NYC with a small trailer and it was very tough getting around all the parkway restrictions. I'd think things like that would be very easy to database as they're pretty much known. Can't really understand why there is a category for Taxi's when this seems to be a much bigger issue.

Have you thought about Truckers version? It would be nice to see it happen.

Re: Trucks contribution

Actually now that they added Taxi mode, they said a few times that were also planning to add more, trucks and buses are possible to setup with restrictions on WME already so it should be coming. The only thing is that there is no database to support heights and weights for now, so it might be basic at first (truck=can/cannot pass).

Re: Truck route(18 wheeler)

Since this is a request for the app I moved it from the Waze Map Editor requests section into the app one. Also I merged your post in the existing thread for it, please search the forum before opening new threads.

Thank you.

Just to help you guys out, it's best to stop creating new suggestion box items.. Just for trucks there are 153 results with only a few votes (less than 10 votes each).

If people used the most popular truck route etc.. request item which has over 800 votes already and add their votes to it, you would get a lot more chance than by continuing to create a fractionated request pattern over hundreds of duplicate suggestions.
