FEATURE REQUEST: Motorcycle mode

Postby iamgigglz » Wed Dec 05, 2012 9:41 am

Hi

I've searched for this in the forum and only came across people asking about various bluetooth and display modes. My concern is that the traffic could be completely grid-locked, but I'll still be moving through the traffic on my bike, which would sully the data reported by Waze. :?

Can we not just have an option to not report average road speeds, congestion etc?

Thanks

Where I earned my motorcycle license, that kind of riding was illegal.

It has been requested that Waze support different vehicle types (cars, motorcycles, trucks, etc etc) but that does not exist yet nor has it been promised.

For now Waze is aimed at the daily commuter in a personal automobile. If you are not behaving like one, using Waze is creating negative effects for other users.


perhaps there should be an option for us to select if we're motorcyclists/scooters/cyclists (for NYC messengers) so that Waze will not take our data into factor.

In the UK, it's called filtering and, I understand from a biker friend, positively encouraged in lessons.
