Of course, hence the word average lol it's obvious to me anyway :-)

I have actually grown to be against this idea. I would rather see waze color code the speed based on the averages.

If you are significantly below averages your speed would show red, a little below yellow, at averages green, a little above blue, significantly above purple.

Since waze is targeted at commuters this seems to fit better.

Keep the ideas coming though!

:) True. But it could be done in the same way Wazers edit maps: authorized users can report speed limits, that should be confirmed by following Wazers. It could be started at the beginning on freeways and highways (both major and minor); and we could imagine a colour code for the speed icon also for the "uncovered" roads: for example , blue when there are no validate speed limits, green for correct speed (or below), yellow for speed near the limit (or uncertain), and red when the ticket is sure 8-) .

Standard, your speedo is legally required to not show you going slower than you actually are so manufacturers err on the side o caution. It's better with newer models but I've seen older cars be overstated by 10%.
Satnav devices have no such legal requirement so will typically be more accurate (YMMV so always best to side with the car speedo if you're not sure)
