This is more than I expected. Automatic icon helps of course better to understand how rail transport affects to road transport. :idea: If impact is high, then it is possible to make Waze even better in future.

Of course there are exceptions like car train in some countries. Train between FR-UK is not good sample, this is more like subway, but train itself is something similar.

PS. I know good place for Waze office too, if needed. :D

Better is if Waze makes loudly "train is leaving station" sound

Ferry is bit easier question and in Estonia Waze have no problem with ferries https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=3&l ... FFTFTTTTFT Of course it will be nicer to have "Ferry line" road type :) and "Ice road" too (you may see them on same map named as "Jäätee:").

It might still be advantageous to allow the client to run in "offline" mode, so that if, say, you're on the train/ferry/whatever about to reach the stop where you're then going to jump into your car to complete your onward journey, then you could fire up Waze and get a headstart on planning your drive.
