train mode for passive wazers

Postby BlazeTool » Sun Nov 11, 2012 9:27 pm

Wazing from anything other than an automobile is unsupported and heavily frowned upon as it causes problem reports and mucks with the speed data.

Alas, no. Railroads do not make it to the client and they are never snapped to in post processing. Because railroads do not show "conscious" wazers on the train will pave again and again, creating red spaghetti on the map. For better results we use "walking trail" instead of railroads here - just make sure they are nowhere connected to the street-network.

Because we are being better at not junctioning non-drivable segments now, I'd rather see Waze display these in the client as a dashed line or whatever is correct for mapping, and be done with it. I really dislike the idea of changing them all to walking trails just for this... :x

And even if it doesn't actually snap to the rail line in the app, when the drive is processed, it should "snap" to the rail line. I wonder if someone could confirm?

Ditto what BT said.

Ferries, as a mode of transportion which is carrying your car, is generally OK. Ferry routes are often mapped as real roads in Waze.
