Toll option in navigation recommendation

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Thu Jan 17, 2013 6:47 pm

Alt routes will include toll routes even with avoid turned on. Only the primary route is affected. This is by design.

Toll option in navigation recommendation

Postby allanfwong » Thu Jan 17, 2013 6:20 pm

Hey Waze people,

I've been using Waze for a while and I have a recommendation for the navigation.

On my commute, I have the option of taking Toll route or regular city road. Depending on how late I am in the morning or if I need to go somewhere after work, I sometimes choose to take the toll road.

Currently the only way to "choose" this option is to go to the navigation settings and manually select to avoid toll on or off.

Is there a way to allow for this option in the suggested "routes" so that you can just scroll down to the toll (and vice versa if you have toll allowed and you want to not take the toll route that day)?

I found it annoying as well and totally agree with allanfwong.
On my way home I have 2 major routes, one free another one toll, and I would be happy to see both suggested, to see time difference and than to make the decision which one to choose.
Probably the compromise could be direct filtering possibility from suggestions screen.
