500ft TTS notification?

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Fri Dec 21, 2012 4:02 pm

Okay, so this is what I found. In .1 miles it does say 500 feet instead of .1 miles. For the 1 mile mark and the quarter-mile mark, it says to make the turn, it has dropped the "get ready" part. I would imagine, that for other speed notifications, that the .5 and .6 mile mark also have had their TTS changed.

500ft TTS notification?

I noticed this also. What exactly did it say before? I can't remember.

Also, realize that .1 mile is 528 feet. By the Waze method of conversion, this is much closer than 500 ft = 500 m that they've used in the past.


Via my iPhone 3GS.

500ft TTS notification?

I started getting 500ft notifications today instead of .1mi. The problem is that the notification comes at .1mi and not 500ft.

EDIT (added after several posts): The notification is coming at near .2 miles (.19 miles actually) instead of the intended .1/500ft mark.
