Accessing Data History

Post by larosme
Is it possible to access the details of a specific trip (such as location and speed) for a certain date and time?

I was involved in a traffic accident and the other party is making some erroneous claims. Since Waze was running at the time I am wondering if it is possible to get at the data (either directly or by an admin query) to substantiate the details of the event. I obviously have the exact date and time I am looking for.

The trip that I am trying to access was on 5/28/15. When I try to click on the trips from that day and before, I am unable to highlight them and get the route seen on the map. Is there any way to access that data?

You may find this document enlightening: https://www.waze.com/legal/privacy

Dash cams apps are available separately, none are associated with Waze.

Yes & No. As far as instantaneous speed no, average speed can be determined by dividing your distance by time taken. If your interested into looking at your location history go to https://www.waze.com/editor/ and log in to your account. Their will be a box that will appear to the left and you can click on drives. That will show your GPS & Waze provided traces for your whole journey on all your trips that is stored. Your traces will only show you following the route Waze provided, it won't be as detailed as to show your lane position or any other minute details like that, unless you already know them.

Cached data is only stored in the system for I believe 14 days.
