The checkpoint is in the SB Lanes of 93, between Tripoli Rd. And Waterville Valley.
If you want to avoid it, I recommend Rte3, from Lincoln, or SR 175, from Tripoli Rd.
You can try the waze carpool app to see if someone has a similar weekly work route and get some gas money:
Here's the non referral link: https://www.waze.com/carpool
Exactly. It's a community driven service, so if people don't report stuff that's wrong, they'll never get fixed.
As well as reporting within the app, users can go to https://www.waze.com/editor/ and amend things, too.
itt szoktam járkálni pörköltszaftos öltönyben, állva pucsítok általában mint egy fürdőskurva és friss házasokat ijesztgetek.
Link for the lazy
Get it and set it
Tell Carpool where you live and work. Get matched with a fellow Wazer going your way.
Share the ride
When it’s time, one Wazer picks up the other and off they go. Carpool Karaoke time.
Share the cost
Payment is set in advance based on distance. When the ride is over, Carpool transfers it from rider to driver.
Actually it's much simpler than that. Taken from the Waze forums:
On your exit task for whatever launched Waze, add a "Send Intent" task, with Action=Eliran_Close_Intent, Target=Broadcast Receiver.
That is all.
I work downtownish and use the Waze app all the time. One time I needed to get to the airport during rush hour and it sent me on backstreets - Leonard Ave to 5th to Stelzer. Leonard parallels 670 and I was driving along fine when I looked over and saw 670 at a standstill to my left. Thank you, Waze.
Not to mention that it serves you fucking ads when you’re navigating and puts companies who pay for ads at the top of search results. I don’t want to be advertised to when I’m trying to figure out where I’m going and navigate through traffic.
Pretty usual for anybody that commutes. Don't drive a fast/flashy car on 65 in S. Indiana, don't use the left lane, and consider watching Waze for reported events. The worst is when the troopers WALK OUT INTO THE LANE to radar people and flag them causing cars to swerve because a human is in the road. I have never gotten a ticket because I'm prepared, but they love radaring me.
Use Waze. Turn by turn navigation app that specializes in helping people avoid heavy traffic using a combination of city data and crowdsourced data. Google bought them a few months back and is slowly integrating the technology with Google Maps, but Waze itself still does better for the traffic avoidance.
Anecdotal evidence 1
Anecdotal evidence 2
FWIW. As best as I can tell, it doesn't ignore you, it actually tells you off
Waze notifies you of stuff like this as you approach it and took me off the 417 a few exits ahead of traffic stopped.
The more people that use it and submitting traffic updates the better Waze gets.
Way better than a tweet or reddit post.
All this information is readily available. This is a really cool idea! I wonder if they have a suggested features place anywhere on their website. Found it here
If you don't like it you can always exercise your right to protest
Reminder about Waze, which you can use to be informed of these traps
There's an app called Waze you all should use. It's a crowd sourced GPS where people can report speed traps and they'll show up on your route. It might even recalculate a route to avoid them, but I can't really remember.
Edit: https://www.waze.com/ They have a live map online, too. There's supposedly a trap on 71N before 75th street right now.
I don't know how it is now but at the time the map edits were done by actual people. There were 5 levels. Level one could only edit really small. Level two was like 20,000 edits but you could edit most streets just not critical streets major intersections or the area around a hospital. Level 4 could do major streets and highways. Level 5 could do anything including real time construction edits on interstates etc.
What would happen is a level one or two would edit a neighborhood and then at the end of the street they'd have to connect the side road to a main road. They'd have to ask a 3,4,5 to do it as they couldn't. So the upper level would hyper analyze their work and be like you're off by 1 degree and you should fix the last 5,000 edits because they make me unhappy. The slack channel was nothing but assholery of the high levels shitting on the lower levels. You had to just tolerate it otherwise they wouldn't finish your connections you'd get suspended for "not finishing your work".
It wasn't complicated to connect dots but you'd have thought it was rocket science. I just did it to get a cool icon but no one knew that it was so it was a waste of time.
I think your best bet would be Waze. They were aquired by Google a while ago and some of the reported incidents are rolled over to Gmaps. Waze has a lot more information though. https://www.waze.com/ I use it and it seems to have a high number of users in the GTA. Perhaps this helps?
Red license. It sounds like he's on probation and only gets to drive to/from work. A cop is definitely going to question him extra.
Try waze. Someone told me google maps did the same if you clicked traffic but I couldn't get the alerts like accidents and cops, only speeds.
You have to do it from your Waze Dashboard (web site).
If the backways are categorized as 'Parking Lot' or 'Private Roads' then Waze applies a time penalty for their use: https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Routing_penalties
If you look at the App Feature Request, there are several suggestions to allow users to ignore certain hazards like: car stopped on shoulder, red light cameras and weather: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=657
There is also a 13pg discussion regarding the Road Closure feature: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=41598
Waze spent more time trying to stop abuse then actually making it functional. Basically you need more than one wazer to use the 'road closure' button so that it appears in the live map.
If it's a long-term closure then you can use the 'Map Issue' feature and communicate with a local map editor to apply restrictions on that road.
I usually hate the typical response if google it. But dude I found it in two seconds by googling advertising on waze. . Come on man not that hard.
I've only used it a few times but it's a GPS app that lets users submit reports about police, stuff in the road, and probably some other features.
Similar to Google Maps but has users that can help each other out
The City of Winnipeg endorsed traffic app waze has a speed limit indicator and also displays your speed based on your GPS, so you could actually confirm where/when it goes from 60km/h to 50km/h, etc.
Even if you don't need the map feature, the app is great for displaying speed limits in this city of minimal speed limit signs.
Another tip for dealing with the race nonsense... The navigation app Waze has a whole thing about the races and is updating with road closures. It's already had Broad properly marked as closed this week.
Here's a link to their website about the event... And obviously the closures will be reflected in the app.
The app is called Waze:
It is a life saver here in Seattle. Often saves me large amounts of time over regular GPS or Google Maps. It's also super accurate once it gets to know your driving style. If it says you will arrive at 6:59, you will arrive right then every time. I can't recommend it enough.
Sounds like something needs to be tweaked in the map. There might be somebody here who can take a look at the maps there, but another good place to post about this would be in the regional Waze forum for Australia at https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=56
Guess this as good a time as any to recommend downloading and using Waze for real-time traffic updates & navigation including alternate routes and user-reported police/speed traps.
Jesus dude, you keep posting this here, but as I've said the other times if you want the most up to date police speed trap reports you're going to be better serviced downloading Waze rather than asking /r/Omaha.
Hell, you don't even have to download the app you can look it up here: https://www.waze.com/livemap it'll show any currently reported speed traps there.
So it also happens in the stock lock screen, and in Waze. The only common theme here is that all these devices are running android 5.0.1
But continue to act like you know.
I have two routes that I can take to work / home... ok, really three if I want to pay for passage on the NC-540 toll road... so I generally fire up Waze as I'm leaving in either direction to see what route is the fastest. Turns out NC-540 is always the fastest because it's nearly always deserted, so I turn on "Avoid Toll Roads", which is unfortunately takes 4 clicks to toggle when both of the 'free' routes are backed up.
I can almost always count on it's ETA calculation, too. It's nice to be able to call ahead 30 minutes and say... "hey, hon, I'll be 15 minutes late because there's an accident on I-40"... and then show up 45 minutes later, on the dot.
I agree that it would be nice if the 'road hazards' for cars way off to the side was a different icon so I could tell that the orange triangle coming up ahead is really something I should avoid (tire debris, or an out of control pothole for example).
If I remember, I check the map from my desk before I leave with the 'live map':
Please use WAZE instead of Reddit for your driving information. It gives great directions and lets you know where the police are.
Links for it on iOS/Android/Windows Phone are here:
I would say rent a car or use the Uber app. The metro system is terrible in LA. If driving use the Waze App to get around town. You should be able to find street parking in Koreatown may just have to walk a few blocks. If in Koreatown be sure to check out Kyochon
I'd contact your local editing community via the official Waze Forums for the country that the issue is occurring. Include a permalink in your post so local editors can easily identify the area of concern.
Oof, most of the Carpool signups are going the opposite direction, where people in the East Bay drive into SF.
Waze has a carpool option - https://www.waze.com/carpool
511 has a Ridematch service but I haven't heard anything about it - https://www.ridematch.511.org/SanFrancisco/
Here you go:
Waze Live Map - Zoom in to the city, you can see where all the cops are reported as being active. Right now, 70/270 on the west edge of town shows heavy police enforcement activity. 270, near Georgesville Rd on the SW corner of town, 270 south of Easton on the NE corner, just north of there on 270 around 161, SR 104 between Lockbourne and Groveport Rds, US 33 in Marysville, I-70 out west between SR56 and SR38 (London-ish area), and I-70 at SR54 (South Vienna), and these are just the ones I scrolled around and found within a few minutes.
TL/DR: If you need to get somewhere in a hurry, leave earlier, don't speed or run red lights to get there.
Hey, also: so can everyone please sign up for Waze Carpool?
You get to use the carpool lanes, you get a little spare cash, and I get a ride home now and then that’s cheaper than Uber or Lyft, plus you get my charming and sparkling conversation on the way home! :)
In the meantime, I'll continue using Waze.
> Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money on their daily commute.
If you're determined to drive, you can try Waze.
I don't drive to work, but I've noticed it sometimes suggests taking side-street routes when traffic is heavy - which is kind of cool. However, last time I used it, it told me to get on I-25 which it said was at a "stand-still", I did and traffic seemed typical for that time of day (slow, but moving), so I'm still trying to determine how well it works and how to best use it.
Your best option is to use Waze. It will route you based on current traffic. Generally 78 isn't bad, but when it does pile up it can be dreadful. Generally 285 sucks during commute times, but sometimes it is suprisingly clear. PIB is usually good (and often moving 20mph above the speed limit) but there are frequent speed traps near 285.
You're asking the wrong questions.
The question is whether your proximity to the city matters to you and is it more important than buying a house sooner rather than later?
There's a benefit to where you are right now and that is because you are renting. Perhaps share, live in a variety of suburbs that interest you. This may lead to you finding where you want to live.
You can get away without a car in Melbourne. If you want ease of transport I suggest staying within the tram network, at least then you have options when something goes wrong on the network. Also, the insurance and registration is more expensive further in, not too much but it may be a factor to you.
City parking is a pain, renting a car park on a longer term basis helps but once again that's an additional cost.
Imho it sounds like you would be better a little way out of the city, close enough to be convenient but far enough out to make driving away from the city easier.
If you watch the Waze livemap you can get a feel for the traffic throughout the day. I always try to live close to at least two major arterial roads, you don't want to be on the Monash in peak times, it's a slowly moving carpark at best.
That is true. But unlikely here. It is not possible to enforce a patent like this. Been there and done that.
Have to realize how the patent system works in the US is broken. Patents are handled on the backend.
> Now google has done the same.
What? Google owns 100% of Waze. Has for a long time.
"Waze cofounder tells us how his company's $1 billion sale to Google really went down"
The speed limit came with Google owning them. This patent illustrates how broken the US patent system is.
There was NO licensing.
Waze should learn your regular drives after a few days all on its own and auto-suggest them. Just make sure the feature is turned on:
Goto https://www.waze.com/dashboard and login. Make sure that "Allow auto-suggestions for destinations" is checked.
Well, there is Waze. Some law enforcement agencies here embrace it, and some seem to loathe its existence. That's the thing about the police here in the U.S.- each agency is different and their approach to problems like deterring speeders or addressing property crime varies wildly from one department to another.
You might want to grab a copy (or see if your library has a copy) of Along Interstate I-75. Each page is the same number of miles so you can say, "let's drive two more pages then stop for lunch" and you can easily see what the food/gas/etc stops are ahead. There's also little bits of trivia for things along the way.
If you have an iPhone you might also like iExit that lets you search for food/gas/etc. I have mine set up with a "favorites" search that shows me the upcoming Wendy's, Starbucks & Dairy Queens. You can flag an exit and it will remind you about it as you get closer.
If you don't already use Waze then I'd recommend that too. It'll give you real time traffic information including accidents, construction, police, etc.
It's super subjective. What have you tolerated in the past? Google Maps does take into account traffic, though the time ranges are pretty wide. It should be enough to give you an idea though. If you go to Waze you can enter in directions and departure times as well. Waze will be more precise on the times, and it's damn accurate too.
For me, a 45 minute commute would be my absolute upper limit. If you end up centrally located in Orange County, 45 minutes during rush hour should be enough to get you almost anywhere in the county.
EDIT: Forgot I really didn't answer your main question, what is a GOOD commute? A good commute would be anything 20 minutes or less, in my opinion.
Waze is a beautiful thing. But don't play with it while you're driving. Keep your eyes on the road and your hands (up) on the wheel. Use the voice commands to report the cops and road debris.
There's an Ask Reddit thread on who would you want to be the voice of your GPS. I've been using waze quite a bit lately and I can't help thinking what a gold mine those answers must be for the app developers. Currently they have Arnie as the Terminator as a voice selection and they used to have Vlade Divac and Leandro Barbosa(the other GOAT) during the NBA playoffs. Does anyone else use it?
I am always amazed at folk's capacity to both complain about the potholes and road conditions AND the construction. It's sort of a "whatever affects me" complaint.
You should start using Waze -- https://www.waze.com/ -- it aggregates traffic data from users and will actively route you around it.
Most construction projects are fixed price, which means the contractor gets paid $X to do the job regardless of how much or little it costs them. The contractor has a strong incentive to not have people just hanging around not doing anything, so if you see people standing around, it's probably for a good reason. (This isn't, of course, true in every case)
Waze lets you mark potholes to warn other drivers, but it looks like people think it would be impractical to submit them to municipalities. Which is super lame, because you're totally right. The data is there!!
You might want to post this in the Waze App Forum if you haven't already.
A lot of their senior people pay attention to the forums. They might know what's up.
Have you tried using the Waze app? It allows you to see peer-reported incidents like traffic, construction, hazards and police. Obviously not foolproof but I've been using it for both daily driving and longer trips (like to DC and Baltimore) with great success. It'll even re-route you around traffic tie-ups if surface streets become the quicker option - it's saved me a couple times on I-95.
A thousand times this.
My employer's wifi blocks Waze's data feed for reasons unknown, so I turn it off as I'm leaving to learn which freeway I'm taking home that day. Every single day, I get this notification.
App update this morning! Lots of new social features, plus revamped UI. I love this app.
And if you've got some free time, check out the map editor at www.waze.com/editor to increase the quality of roads around you.
You can definitely use Waze to get there, and plan your trip on the livemap.
We do have a small glitch at Al Kamil Wal Wafi at the moment because there's a new stretch of highway there and I'm not sure about the connection of the old road to the new one. I'll try to repair tomorrow, and then 2 days later it will be in the app.
If you do use Waze please report any errors you can find so I can get the map to perfection. We are improving the map everyday.
Your government is giving you permission to be outside doing your job (not that I'm against the lockdown in any way, it will be interesting to see what happens when this has died down though). Cops are everywhere, check out https://www.waze.com/livemap it will show the police in your area. Carry a phone? Yeah, the government is tracking, listening and watching you. The phone stuff was implemented in the name of "national security" because...tErRorism. If you work in IT you are legally required to install backdoors in the software you are creating so as the government can access it whenever they want. The ABC offices were raided by swat teams because they spoke out against our government. Doesn't sound much like freedom to me... Also see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_Eyes for some more insight.
Along those lines I see Teal'c being better as a guest voice on Waze.
For anyone who's never heard of it, it's a "commuter's" GPS nav app for lack of a better description. It's meant to tell you when to leave early because of traffic, warn you of cars on the shoulder, speed traps, icy roads, find the fastest routes around crashes, stuff like that. Media outfits partner with them to promote their movies or whatever by having characters be the voice announcing these impediments. A recent one celebrated the 50^th anniversary of Sesame Street by having Cookie Monster announce warnings. "Police reported aheaa*aaa*d! ...do you see them? Do you think they want cookie?"
Along those lines:
Thank you for the explanation!
I can now understand your problem. Waze provides a visible indication of a road tax, but your location does not charge that tax.
You might consider informing Waze. Here are some links that might give you assistance:
You can use the Waze Livemap to put in your start and finish addresses and then change the time leaving to get an idea of typical commute time when you'll actually be commuting.
If your editor rank isn't high enough for you to have access to the closure option in WME, then you should post a request into the appropriate community forum - I believe this is the one for Boston:
Waze will solve all your problems. Okay maybe not all, but it will tell you when to leave based on traffic, if you add your class as a calendar event. It'll also reroute you if it finds a more efficient route.
You're going to need to report this directly to the UK Editing community: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=55
It's all dependent on community guidelines; some communities set their Speed Camera's speed to zero so that there is an audible alert at all times.
Others have it set to the speed limit. Post your question in the forum, and wait for senior UK editors to respond.
Waze is similar to Apple Maps or Google Maps (it's actually owned by Google) but with a few extra features. You can submit reports for things such as police/speed traps, red light cameras, vehicles stopped in the road or on the shoulder, roadkill, and construction zones (just to name a few). Waze is a great application but it's not for everyone (and obviously lacks tight iOS integration), so I can see the appeal in only being notified of a certain thing, like the speed traps that /u/Chrisnness mentioned.
A resource I'm not sure others are aware of is MDOT MiDrive
Freeway closures and accidents will show on the map as soon as they are confirmed by MDOT in the field (takes a little longer than Waze). You can check out the traffic cams that are online (not all work). And our region has plow cams as well. This along with a traffic speed layer on the map can help you out in the future.
Or you might get lucky and find a redditor that just traveled your route.
A quick google seems like their API is friendly enough.
My concern is monetizing it to a degree where it'd give a developer that's good enough to do it justice the incentive to go all the way through with it.
What that means for the security of people's travel plans and patterns could be a deterrent for use.
Additionally, I imagine a lot of people charmed by the concept wouldn't want to be responsible for a data breach in-practice.
Yep, sometimes Google scares me with how accurate they can be with this type of stuff. I second using the time feature in google maps directions to see how long it predicts it will take. Waze is a great app for the phone that will also redirect you when you are traveling if an accident or something that comes up in your route will slow you down. Google bought this app a year or so ago and have been incorporating some of this into their own map programs, but I still think the Waze app is better.
Waze does have an Indonesia local forum; it's in your best interest to raise this concern there.
Waze has vehicle type options, however it currently treats all vehicles as "private vehicle".
You can ask the Indonesia community if they want to mark alleyways/side-streets for "motorcycles".
Id suggest getting the Waze app. It's a real time traffic app that users can update and chat. You get a google map-ish view with traffic flow details, accidents, stalled cars, etc...I live by it when I am traveling and when I see congestion ahead.
I don't have an answer for you, but use the Waze app to report speed traps to alert other drivers that there is a cop in the area.
Its wonderful and has alerted me where cops sit.
Bonus: You can also report other hazards such as potholes!!!
Waze Is also supposed to be really good. I haven't gotten the chance to test it out that much.
It's supposed to be better at finding alternate routes, real time traffic information and there's also a speed trap/police warning system that other users can warn about. I've had it on my phone for a while, but I find myself using google maps mostly for longer rides and waze for commuting purposes(to find alternate routes quickly).
If anyone is interested, you can check out the Waze map here:
You can see other users moving around, and if you zoom in you could also see different warnings they've put up (click on them to see what they are).
I don't know of a spreadsheet, but there's an app called Waze (https://www.waze.com/) that has a lot of good stuff. It's a GPS app and I'll skip all the stuff it has because it's not really relevant to your question but if you go to the "Navigate" section and swipe the search page over to "Categories" you get 17 categories of listings of stuff to do near you, and then each of those categories has listings from Yelp, YP, google places, and Waze. I found some pretty cool stuff that way, not all of which require money necessarily.
Um, Waze for both Andoid and iOS have been doing this via a crowdsourced mechanism for years. The app has even improved a bit since they were bought by Google. It isn't perfect, sometimes missing construction closures in LA till someone reports them, but it has routed me around seriously bad accidents amazingly well.
These are routing issues that might be adjusted by map editors. In the first case, we might designate the lane-crossing movement as “difficult” so users can avoid it by enabling “Avoid difficult turns” in navigation settings. For the second, it might be something similar, or maybe there is an errant prohibited turn.
In either case, these locations should be reported to the local volunteer map editors. You can post them here, using the app’s “Report > Map issue” function at the locations in question (spelling out the problem in the comments), or on the official Waze forum (find your country or state sub forum here.
I’ll ping some UK editors and have them reach out. Keep an eye on your Waze Forum inbox for info on how to get in contact with the UK community.
Here’s a great walkthrough of drawing a parking lot from one of our volunteer editors. Most important to you is that you want to double click to end drawing the polygon shape of the parking lot, and to add an entry-point for the parking lot entrance. Also add as many details as possible in the second tab of the parking lot place. You may also want to set an entry point for whatever business you’re creating a parking lot for.
You can get step by step assistance from your local community, just check the official Waze forums for where folks chat (discord in the US).
I would recommend posting it on the Waze forums https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=375 , Google takes their data for road closure from there too as they own it so it would kill two birds with one stone.
Nos EUA o preço cobrado não pode passar de $.54 por milha + metade do combustível.
Mais ou menos R$1 por km + combustível.
Mas esse preço dos EUA é cobrado com base na recomendação do governo para tarifas.
Vai ser interessante ver como isso funcionaria aqui no Brasil .
Maybe try Nextdoor too?
Google is trialing carpooling using Waze in the Bay Area. Stay tuned if it comes up here: https://www.waze.com/carpool
Whoa. Cool it. Waze is a GPS app that uses crowd-sourced data in addition to real-time traffic data to give you the best possible route. It's extremely convenient and always tells you the best route, which varies depending on the time of day. I'm sure you've had good experience with taking Callowhill and all of those other streets, but that won't be helpful if there's a crash, road work, or unusual backup, or if traffic patterns change and people start taking different routes and Callowhill is no longer viable. Plus it's totally unnecessary and annoying to have to memorize routes.
That's not how laws work. In Michigan, for example, my landlord cannot evict me from my apartment with no notice just because he feels like it. Even if this is specifically in my lease and I agreed to it, it's still illegal. Waze cannot take our personal information from the app and sell it to insurance companies, though it could sell aggregate data to anyone because it's not identifiable to a specific person.
> Waze does not sell, rent or lease your personal information to third parties.
If I was you, I would subscribe to Anchorage Police Department's Nixle text messages. Their alert this morning was https://local.nixle.com/alert/5570599/?sub_id=1938817
Another good one to use is the mobile app waze. Wazers can drop pins notifying other wazers of cops, road hazards, accidents, traffic, etc.
In the app you hit a button when there is something to report, and specify what it is (hazard, construction, police, etc.). Then anyone else using the app will see that report (usually announced 1/2 mile before you get to it).
> so I'm not sure what your point is
It's that Waze was not originally designed to have lane information, and adding it would be a huge undertaking seeing how the basemaps work. It would be nice if it were added, but for whatever reason it hasn't been a priority for the developers.
> Waze already has the maps with lane information
What's your source on that? There is no lane information in the app or the map editor.
I understand lane info is a big deal for some people. For me it's outweighed by having volunteer-maintained up-to-date maps and realtime traffic and hazard info from other drivers -- something your 10yo unit won't ever have. And Google maps navigation imports some of these things from Waze.
Feature requests are great, and they have a forum just for them. And if you've got a GPS unit or another app that works better for you then use it until Waze catches up on the features you need.
Fyi.... Use the Waze App to mark where cops sit.
But yep. Rox Cops have nothing to do (Roxbury is a quiet, residential township). So I guess they have to do something, like give out tint tickets, to rationalize all the high paid cops.
You can enter both addresses, and the time of day and it will tell you how long it takes at those times.
If you left Davis sq this morning at 7 am and went to Newton center it would have taken you 30 min.
This is the kind of thing that makes me wish dual-booting the Pi was an easier task. Put RaspBMC on one side, and RetroPi on the other. Then, just for fun, throw in Raspbian or something.
Now, this is where you can have a little fun. Depending on how old the kids are (or if an adult is riding back there with them) you could do something like run Waze or Glympse on your phone, and enable location sharing. Tether the Pi, pass the sharing URL over to it, and then you can pull up a real-time GPS map. Bonus points: if you're running Waze both the driver and the viewer will get a fairly accurate ETA and notifications about road conditions (mostly user-reported, but its traffic estimation is usually pretty good).
I highly recommend the Waze app for both android and iphone Waze, it is a fantastic traffic avoiding app. It also provides directions based on what the current traffic conditions are. It helped me avoid a jam today that I would have otherwise been stuck in for half an hour.
I'm not that person but I found it in their comment history...
(I've never posted a link before, I hope this works!)
dexter voice download
BING! To be exact, theres a Waze review for First Baptist Church of South Brevard by a Wyatt Rycroft.
La Cerra Musical is just a few blocks from the Condado hotel area. It's a location on the Puerto Rico Tourism Route of Salsa so should have something that fits your need.
A small part of the Waze API is available for cities and other public entities through the Waze for Cities program. That program is completely free to use, though there are a couple of access restrictions that should be outlined in the documentation center of Waze for Cities. I'm afraid I can't share that documentation. I can however share there there is a request rate limiter in place to prevent massive consultations.
Waze is very defensive about its data though, and doesn't allow other companies/people querying it. So unless you work for a public entity, I'm afraid Waze is not going to be a legal source of data. Waze only has one source of income: advertisements. Carpool might follow in the future. Selling access to the data is not seen as something they want to do, from what I've gathered.
Check the @Waze live map, which has all the road closures (Artscape & Construction) marked: https://www.waze.com/en/livemap/directions?latlng=39.297027976231945%2C-76.6188669204712&zoom=15
And they're actually full of the Waze beacons :) https://www.waze.com/en-GB/beacons
>Powered by Eddystone beacon technology, Waze Beacons transmit a wireless signal that can be received by any phone or tablet with Bluetooth® wireless technology enabled and provide an alternative to GPS signal. In other words, Waze Beacons enable uninterrupted location service with driver devices, yielding tunnel navigation not possible with GPS.
>Installed on tunnel walls, Waze Beacons send location information to driver devices (one-way communication only) to empower Waze or other navigation providers to offer real-time routes and alerts, ensuring drivers never miss an in-tunnel exit and reducing collisions caused by last minute lane changes to reach an exit.
I have no idea, but I'll be driving by it soon. I'm still at work so I checked out the live map at Waze.com. I usually check it before leaving to see how fucked traffic is going to be.
They use different methods to calculate routes and traffic and have different features.
Waze is a community-based service, while Maps, is fully controlled by Google.
They clearly use different algorithms. Google Maps can tell you which lane you are, for example. Waze can't, but can tell where the police is, give more traffic details and receive inputs from the drivers making several little corrections in your route in real time. Google Maps only does that when it detects that some important shit happened.
Waze algorithm is much more aggressive, meaning that it will make you take longer but faster routes more frequently than Maps. You can also set Waze to prioritize main roads or faster routes. Google use more generic routes that will please average drivers.
Even the maps between the two services are different. Google Maps is made by Google using several methods like satellites, official sources and their Street View cars.
Wave maps are edited and continuously updated by a community. Is very common to find small roads in Waze that don't appear in any other service because they are local or private. You can find access to shopping malls, parking lots and even roads made by citizens in the middle of nowhere.
AFAIK, the only thing Maps gets from Waze is where the accidents and closed streets are.
Use Waze you can see almost on real time traffic for that location.
Also check real time Live web cam... when you get there you can wave online anyone if you send them the link and you are near the lake in the middle of the image at that time.
>Maps è un altro che difficilmente trova un'alternativa e comunque lo istallerei io per primo se non ci fosse.
Waze è un ottima alternativa a Google Maps.
>e perchè devo trovarmeli sul telefono?
Google richiede ai produttori di telefoni Android di preinstallare i propri prodotti, è tutto scritto nell'articolo
yes, /u/ssl-3 is outstanding in his field. Or try the Waze PL.
Since neither app knows which way you're going to drive to get to the highlighted route or what mapped road you're going to enter based on where you can actually drive from where you are, neither can realistically tell you which way to turn when you get to a road.
And /u/ssl-3, if that's a place you go often and this is important to you, you could get the driveway added in Waze. Then it would know which way to have you turn.
