Near Vicinity Target Versus Specific Address
I don't want to assume, but I have to believe machine learning at Waze is either a thing now or will be soon. To that end a feature I've been imagining for some time might be more easily achieved in the current technological state.
Idea: Since we typically do not drive our vehicles right into the mailbox of a given destination and knowing that, other than homes or small shops, a large percentage, perhaps a vast majority of destinations are large properties with big parking lots. If there was an "I'm here" or "I've Arrived" button, that GPS info could train Waze to know that a driver is close enough and likely in a parking lot, or near an alternate entrance. I believe such a feature would be preferable to Waze insisting that the driver has an additional distance and time to drive to get right on the doorstep of the mailing address. It might even improve the route guidance. This feature would create a vicinity-based bubble around a target destination, thus creating, in my opinion, a more accurate, and collaborative user experience.
I'd love to know what you think...and I bet you are already several steps ahead of me on this.
Thanks for all you do.
