Being a techie, do we know what they did, or only that they did something?

We didn't want to say anything yet, but since somebody's noticed . . . :lol:

Waze did make a change to the routing algorithm this morning. We have automated monitoring running on several cross-London routes and one of the worst has apparently started working again.

It's way too early to say the problem is fixed or provide more details. Suffice it to say that we will be monitoring London routing very closely over the next few days.

It was working fine this morning (8am, CR5 -SW7) for the first time in I don't know how long, and with an ETA which was only 10 minutes short of reality (it's usually more like half an hour wrong in the morning peak). Be interested to see what happens at home time. Normal behaviour is that it starts working after I've gone a mile or two, making me think it's any trip over about 12 miles that throws it.

I'm not really here. Honest. The problem is more or less all day in London.

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.

There still seems to be no fix on the horizon for this issue. :( :( :(

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.
