I will give it a try again tomorrow. Perhaps it's been fixed and I didn't notice. I forgot what platform you're on?

My experience is similar to bgodette's also ... the ETA is generally correct to within a minute or so on my way to and from work (about 30 minutes) or church (about 15 minutes). That could be due to me being one of very few Wazers in my area (so that a lot of the data on those routes is mine, thus keeping the ETA commensurate with my regular driving there); however, I've seen the same ETA consistency on longer trips as well, such as infrequent visits to my parents (2 hours west) or my wife's parents (2 hours east).

I'll test again today, but my experience to now has been as reported here and here and as recent as the 3.1.0.997 beta here.

Android, but it shouldn't matter as eta comes from the route server.

It's all my phone's fault for using Tapatalk.

It is definitely still broken on iOS still. Months and a few versions after first being reported.

Here's what iOS has experienced with the "Share Dest" feature since day 1. The first ETA in the text/email is correct and spot on with the actual ETA as long as you send it prior to driving. The first ETA is 12:04.

The following images show the progression of driving and how far off the ETA gets after less than 2 hours of driving. I cannot say for sure, but it looks like the ETA is the message is always the time from now and adding in the original estimated duration of driving. Either way, this feature is near useless on iOS.

Yeah that's pretty broken. Since all Android has is the tweeting I just share the tweet, which is always sent at the start, via SMS if they need it.

I had been using Blackberry Traffic, an app from RIM that quite simply graphs your route to and from work every day. One killer feature for me was that it sends my wife a notification of when I'll be home. Love that, use it every day.

I'd like to see this added to Waze. For each destination in my favourites, define an email address to notify when I'm on my way. With no more than one tap I should be able to let them know when I'll be there and it should notify them again if the arrival time changes significantly.


I agree with you, i used that app for the same reason and miss that feature.

This would be an amazing improve I would like to see also.
A Cell phone text to be send automatically or to be prompted, so the waze user can choose or not to text his destination contact.
With most recent version text/email on ETA can be sent, but it just takes to much steps.
An option to have it automatically would be superb.
And it can't be hard to implement something like that :-D
