This is likely referring to the ubiquitous City of "Unknown" that plagues the Canadian map, due to many parking lot and private basemapped segments coming in with a city field of "Unknown". Once they are all quashed (to be completed in 2083) it will disappear, but this is kind of funny.

Type: Incorrect address
Description: Hi, My house address is ## XXXXXX Lane, CITY, CT. My house is 4th house on the left on XXXXXX Lane. Make a left from XXX Lane to XXXXXX Lane and my house is 4th house on the left. But its showing a different house address. I am unable to edit the marker point which Waze is showing. Even mapquest is showing the same. So I sent an email to mapquest with the latitude and longitude details of my house. I am not knowing how to edit this marker point and move it to the right location. Can anyone of you look in to this and edit this. The latitude and longitude details of my house are ##.######,-##.###### but currently your showing as ##.######,-##.###### which is incorrect. Thank you Meera


All Hail Meera for the amazing level of detail in this report... Now, where did I put that link the GPS update resources...

This would make Waze usable in Urban areas for scooter riders without horribly corrupting traffic data or endangering the rider.


And people like me who sometimes keep it under 65 on the interstate to save gas.

If you're driving slower than prevailing traffic for some other reason, I don't see how any other nav is going to give you a better estimate.

While using many "offline" navis (and route planners) I was often able to define my driving speed profile (city, outside, freeway). I'm aware it is less important with Waze's historical data, but was pretty good customizable on roads where the road profile was not the speed limiting factor.

Exactly.

It seems to take all single week(end)-days into account and distinguish between them. (I'm not sure whether the discovered shifts by 8 hours and later 24 hours were already fixed.)

Upon Waze's advertisement (Outsmart The Memorial Day Traffic with Waze) it is apparent, that Waze aims and tries to take also seasons into account... and must have prepared (or selected) data for this particular day (at least 1 year) in advance. But the seasons off course do differ between countries. Thus I've contacted them a few days later with a question, whether they would be interested in gathering specific dates for particular countries. They replied with their well-known silence :|

It also does not take long-term holidays into account, probably for the same reason. Which causes huge data pollution, with rather long catch-up phase during+after summer holidays.

Waze's speed data is correlated to time of day*, so it takes time-of-day variations into account. If you're driving slower because overall traffic is slower, Waze's ETA should be accurate. If you're driving slower than prevailing traffic for some other reason, I don't see how any other nav is going to give you a better estimate.
