I'm sure you get the voice alerts, for heavy traffic.

Traffic flow colors lost under route and incidents

Postby MysticCobra » Wed Nov 21, 2012 11:12 pm

I mentioned this is a different thread but thought it warranted its own because I feel like it's a big issue...
The traffic flow colors are inconsistent (meaning not there often enough) and often hidden under the purple route line and incident icons.
I want my waze map to show the traffic backups on roads around me (when not navigating) and my route (while navigating) in colors based on traffic speeds. I know waze does this but more often than not, the I can't see the red "slow" area because it is under my purple route line or there are so many incident icons that I can't even see the road. I'll try to get a screenshot (if I can figure out how on my phone).
This works well much of the time but I feel like it doesn't show me traffic flow on my route ahead while navigating. As soon as a traffic jam starts to form (even if 30 miles ahead) I want to know so I can find a way around.

If you have an iPhone, press the home and power buttons at the same time. Don't press and hold. The screen shot will be in your photos.
