I agree that it's inconceivable that nobody in Boston could get routing for 3-4 weeks - but it's not the whole time, it's specifically in the morning during heavy traffic, and the problem goes away as traffic lessens. The Google Maps iOS app shows the correct up-to-date realtime routing choices if I go there at the same times - maybe they're just starving Waze routing capacity in favor of Google routing capacity?

This is happening every single morning right now, and isn't a device issue (as it works perfectly outside of those peak periods, and while it's not working I have zero network connectivity or functionality issues with any other apps).

Thank you for your response and thoughts, gettingthere!

Waze's got their own, independent servers.

That's what I'd assumed - but if they're having capacity issues during the times I need it, they're losing me as a user. This morning I finally decided to use Google Maps rather than Waze, as I no longer trust Waze to guide me on the fastest route to work. My commute has 2 significantly different major routes to choose from in addition to small variations, and I started using Waze because I found it was saving me 10-30 minutes a day when I trusted it and followed its recommendations. The last 5-6 weeks have completely eroded that trust due to consistent, reliable routing server timeouts when I most need Waze to work.

I'm sorry to hear that. :(

Located in France. Android 4.3 S4.
Each time I have a call during a Waze session, I got Server not found ... for 1 to 10 mn before recovery. I am afraid that Waze MUST change their protocol and error handling ASAP.
I must switch to GooleMaps and that's dangerous !

Hello, when calculating https://www.google.be/maps/dir/Ledegem/H%C3%BCschi,+7050+Arosa,+Zwitserland/@48.7973131,4.3244378,7z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x47c3313f3a788249:0x40099ab2f4d5650!2m2!1d3.1274573!2d50.8549568!1m5!1m1!1s0x4784bc50fd84aad1:0x8c91dd6e284d67e6!2m2!1d9.658135!2d46.7745469 I get an error (on Live Map, something has gone wrong, on Smartphone I get nothing). Can someone tell me where it goes wrong?

Multiple reports of routing timeouts by Malaysian users here in this post: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=84958 It's been happening for two days in a row now.

Routing from Davao City to Midsayap, Catabato (Philippines) gets routing timeouts eventhough I paved it correctly (many times) and refined it thru editor

The Waze infrastructure seemed to have more hiccups this morning during rush hour (7 to 10am GMT+8) in Malaysia. "Searching network" message appears even though the data connection is working fine and multiple users in Malaysia have also reported having the same issue, so this is not an isolated one.
