i take one of two routes to work everyday and a slightly modified version of each on the way home.
i really don't want waze to figure out a route for me from Home to Work - i'm pretty much going to go the way i'm going to go, for human-factor reasons (maybe coffee, maybe i like driving by the park, etc.).
given that, i'd love for waze to work with those limited / predefined routes, and then provide:
- which of the two morning routes is better RIGHT NOW.
- same for evening, of course
- give me only heads-up about stuff that is actually on my chosen route. i don't care and don't want to be distracted by events that are even 400 ft perpindicular to my route, if it isn't ON my route.
i assume a route is defined as an ordered list of coordinates. i think waze can 'capture' that, if it lets me hit START and then STOP in a Learning Mode.
if not, i can provide the kml file from google latitude.
as a matter of fact - why can't waze just look at my google latitude, and figure out these oft-traveled 'routes'?
but i wouldn't mind providing them if necessary.
i think there are a bunch of these features in the biking apps - maybe look there for ideas.
