Garmin is wrong about the speed limit most of the time.

So what? We are thousands of editors who can correct the day to day limit speeds. ;)
Ignore this so desired option would be an error for me ...

Any idea when we can expect the feature, end of the month or rather end of the year, next year?

Yes, the other topic was locked for the reasons mentioned above.

Bottom line, the routing engine doesn't care about speed limits, on how fast cars are actually travelling on the roads involved. That's the benefit of using real-time speed info for routing decisions, it will get you there in the shortest time possible.

If Waze started to alert automatically to the speed limit, it would be the first thing I would disable in the app (or if you couldn't, I would stop using Waze entirely) - here in CT the speed limit on the Interstates is 65mph (55 in a few places), but everyone drives 75-80mph on the roads (conditions permitting). If Waze would alert it would be come quite annoying.

iOS is the same way. Only shows when you are over. BUT, if you look in the speedometer, you can see it scale up as you speed up.... 100% of that scale is the speed limit. So for example, if you are going 15MPH, and it is half way... you know the speed limit is at or near 30MPH.

This shouldn't be the case, last I knew. Mine still shows the limit all of the time, I might be tied to Beta though. I'll check other phone later.

There is an option to display SLs all the time, HOWEVER it is limited to certain Beta Tester Groups. It is more for testing/verification purposes than anything else.

Are there any plans to open this up to editors? say maybe L3 and above can apply to get SL display all the time? Personally I think it should be an option for all, but if for whatever reason it has been decided that that is not desirable, it would still be a valuable tool for editors running WSLSM to know when to report signs and when everything is OK.

I don't know.

I had an old sat nav what had the feature of showing what your average speed is during variable speed area. Waze needs this!

If the speed limits were posted on the Waze app maps it would have saved me a ticket in Mass. I'm used to the Interstates in CT being 65 mph but I was on I-93 near Boston and got nailed ($130 ticket) for doing 68 in a 55(I'm quite sure I wasn't even doing 68 mph but they know an out of stater probably won't contest it) If the speed limit was posted on the Waze map I would have adjusted accordingly to under 65 mph. If it had a warning feature like Navigon has it could have a toggle to shut it off. When I used Navigon I had it disabled because it was annoying most times esp when travelling local roads that I know. That's my 2 cents. Hopefully they will integrate this feature sooner than later.
