It's happened several times - and each time it was shortly after someone added a Ferry route across Long Island Sound (New London, CT <-> Orient Point, NY; Bridgeport, CT <-> Port Jefferson, NY). I'll give one detailed example, but the same general concept happened each time.kentsmith9 wrote:Sounds like you saw problems.

I suggest waiting to write this page until their system comes out.
Also, I've seen serious problems when a Ferry is mapped here in CT - which is why none of ours are mapped at this time.
There are GPS traces that run across Long Island Sound and they get REALLY wide in the middle (just about 5000 meters wide = ~3 miles). I don't think Waze will snap users to that.

Yes, they do. Don't like the idea of using the same road type as Tim says.
I also don't really see the point of mapping the cross-channel ferries other than to 'see' where the ferries go to. I wouldn't use Waze to, necessarily, choose my crossing point.

Not yet, but we have asked for an "Avoid Ferry" option (like "Avoid Freeway").dude463 wrote:If so, is there any special functionality to it vs other road types?
dude463 wrote:Then should we start using the Ferry road type? Currently we don't in Washington state and crossing times are reported by Waze as 10 minutes when it's closer to an hour in reality, and that's if you showed up just before a ferry started to load. Wait times to even get onto a ferry are up to 2 hours on busy days.
