Navigate shortest route
With the new update you all took away the option to search by shortest route available or Fastest route available. Please bring this function back.

Waze is crap now...
Your problems seems to concern US only...But in EU Waze is disaster..
My usual route is: POLAND->SLOVAKIA->HUNGARY->CROATIA = 730KM
WAZE tells me to go: POLAND->CHECH REPUBLIC->AUSTRIA->SLOVENIA = 900KM
and the difference is not only a distance... I have to pay for a highway toll card in every of these countries..So maybe I will save 30mins but I will pay more for GAS and many more for HIGHWAYS...it is idiotic and crappy idea.
Please do something about this.

Please add shortest route feature. The fastest is sometimes the longest route. I'd rather have the short one. Saves time AND GAS!!!!
Jacob Jakobowicz commented
Please let us, users, decide if shortest or fastest
Andrey (Sapozhnik) commented
I think user can choose
- optimal (like present)
- short (without real-time statistics)
- fast (only real-time statistics)
Mykhailo Zamozdra commented
I propose to leave only one alternate (shortest) route, other than the main (fastest) route, which would not count the statistics on the segments.

Yes for electric car. Pleas ADD function.

I don't understand why you would remove basic routing functionality. As an electric vehicle driver I very much prefer a shorter route in general. I got bit again today by the lack of this functionality when Waze took me on a route at least 10 miles longer on the highway, which ended up having an accident and traffic jam anyway, so it was longer AND slower. It required me to unnecessarily charge longer to make my destination.
When the "Electric" vehicle type option is selected, please prefer shorter routes as any small change in travel time is more than made up with faster charging time.
My route to work can be either 15 miles, 23 miles or 26 miles. Waze only shows me the two longer ones instead of the usual three, even though the shortest route is only a minute longer than the 23 mile route and usually 3-4 minutes faster than the 26 mile trip. Give me the option to select the shortest route.
Because Waze chose the fastest route my EV car needs to charge to reach the endpoint. This costs me a lot more time then the saved minutes due to traffic on the much shorter route. Please bring back shortest route option.
Please better than nothing..

Please return the option of choosing the shortest and/ or fastest route which is ideal for navigation!
Please bring the shortest route option back!
Bring it back
Bring it back. Now the navigator is not as good as before.
Bring it back
As a cab driver I charge for distance travelled only. Shortest route is cheaper for passengers

Bring it back, it's ridicoulous...Waze sent me outside Manila, around Velenzuela, just to go to Zabarte Fairview...That's insane and a waste of time and gas...I rather be stuck in traffic than going through unknown back alleys.
Michael Metsfan commented
Bring it back !!! Waze is now showing to take me an additional 10 minutes to get to the local parkway... what is wrong with all you developers and staff screwing with a system that already works??
Definitely need this option back. Waze routed me to turn right and then go down half a mile do a u-turn and then make another right.
Knowing the roads around me, I went straight which cut off a mile of driving. Maybe during rush hour and if I were wanting to be super aggressive, I would have followed the route waze chose for me.
The routing lately has been awful. Not sure how they changed their algorithms but I'm considering going back to google maps or even the improved Apple Maps. Both have been working better than Waze lately.
