If you use WAZE as a traffic/map app then I’d like your opinion, please.
I think it recently (past few months) got worse at predicting arrival time. It used to give an arrival time and come heck or high water I’d arrive at that time. I could crawl at a snail’s pace through rush hour city traffic and still arrive at that time because it had accurately accounted for traffic. I could speed (80mph+) along an interstate marked for 55mph and I’d still arrive at that time because it had, I presume, over time learned that I tend to speed on the highway and it accurately took that into account. (It claims to be able to “learn” my favorite routes, why wouldn’t it “learn” my other driving habits?)
But now I sit in rush hour city traffic (major US metropolitan area) and watch the arrival time tick up pretty much on a 1-to-1 rate. I’m stuck for a minute, arrival time ticks up a minute. And this isn’t “new” traffic (i.e. an accident that just occurred), it’s the same rush hour city traffic at the same time of day along the same route I always take.
Likewise I zing along the interstate and watch the arrival time drop fairly quickly. It didn’t use to do that.
Anyone else notice this?
