Still no fix from Waze and if anything it seems to be worse this week.

It's not just London. Last week I tried to plan a route on my iphone from Beaconsfield (which is M40 J1) to Girvan in South Ayrshire and couldn't one, however it would plan a route to Glasgow which is a fair bit further north but reasonably simple; M40, M25, M1, M6, M74. If you are going to Girvan you have to come off the M74 and go down a few wiggly bits :roll: .

I then tried on Live map and found the nearest I could get was a route from Uxbridge to Girvan. I ended up scrapping the idea and went by plane instead (I did remember to turn Waze turned off) but Waze worked a treat getting from the airport. No hanging around waiting for it to work out that it was 300 miles away from where it was last used unlike my old TomTom which could take up to 10 minutes.

I've just tried planning the route again in Live map and kept moving my start point further north until it worked, ended up getting one from Dumfries to Girvan which is not actually very far (65 miles) and it offered me three alternatives. All the following failed, Uxbridge, Watford, Northampton, Rugby and Carlisle. I tried each one several times and also tried each one to Glasgow which always worked.

Andy.

Do those routes always fail or just at certain times of day? Cross London routes work fine (mostly) at night but bork from about 0500.

I've only tried searching a couple of times so can't really say.

I think the first time I looked was middle of the day and at least I got a route from Uxbridge (West London). Today was searching at 18:30 and had to move the starting point all the way to Dumfries before it would give me a route.

In Livemap you can select the time of day for the route calculation.

I've tried a few different times and it seems to be always failing, after 10 seconds or so I get the message "Whoa! Something went wrong. Please try again later". It seems like the server is busy and just times out.

Just to let you know I am currently having problems using live map to route from Pinner to Streatham. I know its an ongoing problem, just adding another example. Also this is 15:00 on a weekday so not rush hour, that I know of.

EDIT: Cannot use client to find a route either. I am not at Pinner at present so using that as the destination.
