Good news: the routing issues will never be fixed.

Are you volunteering to make all the timely speed limit parameter changes to all segments across the world? Else, how would this database stay up-to-date? We already have whole towns that are still crap basemap road data, let alone lacking speed limit data.

I agree. However, I don't need notification that I am going over the posted limit, but notification of a speed limit change would be great. Just "ding" when the posted limit changes. That way if I missed a speed limit sign I am notified.

If you lived where I do, or if you have traveled like I have perhaps you would have a different perspective on the world around you. Not everyone lives in a big city with "1000's" of vehicles around. I live in a small rural community where a traffic jam is defined by two cars stopped in the road talking to each other. Speed limit signs are easily covered by overgrowth. Get your heads out of your ____'s and realize that your perspective on the world around you isn't the only one.

I would love to have speed limits posted in the map. Some way of warning that I am going over the speed limit would be valuable too.

Just guessing here, but are we drumming up support for Waze or trying to push users over to [add you fave GPS name (that might or might not support speed limit data) here] ?

I sure as hell think this is not working ... :roll:

OK. Wouldn't it then be better to give this as an explanation instead of "you don't need to know the official speed limit"?

For me it could be useful in countries I'm not familiar with. But it is not really important. What is important for me is that Waze displays traffic code properly. When I move at 20km/h on a freeway /highway segment I call that traffic. When it takes me 10 minutes and 4 or 5 red/green switches to clear an intersection I call that traffic. I don't care if this is the normal pace during this time of the day in that particular segment. Anything less than the speed limit is traffic in my book.

Nobody is saying "you don't need to know the speed limit":
    1) Waze doesn't need to know the speed limit in order to function; and
    2) Anyone who does want to know the speed limit, can look through the windshield for posted signs

I guess you either did not complete reading my post or I didn't explain myself well

Yes. Speed limit data for the driver is not as important for me as perfect traffic detection and I believe waze needs the speed limit to perfect its automated traffic detection.

What is annoying for me is that Waze does not always show me the traffic on the map /route eventhough it knows about it (this is evident in the fact that ETA is almost accurate to the minute). Average speed is not as important to me as the current speed compared to what the highway /primary street is designed for.
