Time zone adjustment
Waze should adjust ETA to the local time when destination is a different time zone. When you leave Phoenix for southwest CO, for example, the ETA should be in mountain time, not AZ time. Currently, the ETA only adjusts when your phone automatically adjusts as you cross the time zone. It would be nice to know drive time is 6 hours, but ETA is 7 hours due to time change.
Please note we're changing the status of this suggestion to Not right now, since we finalized our plans for 2023 and this idea won't be implemented this year.
We hope to have it included in our plans for later years and will keep you posted.
How about adding this to 2024?

Decided in February that this couldn’t fit into “plans” for 2023? This isn’t a 10+ month project, you could roll this out in the next update in 2 weeks. Your developers are capable. Spend less time turning cars into Fraggles & more time making sure that the ETAs you provide for cross-time zone trips are accurate. This isn’t a sparkly new feature we’re asking for, it’s a bug that needs to be fixed yesterday.

For me, the ability to see my eta in local time is very important. Otherwise, the app is fantastic.
Debbie Bryant commented
At least add a line that says arrival time at destination is +\- hours.

Really surprised this is something that has not been implemented. Seems to be an easy fix to something that a lot of users are requesting
It would definitely resolve a lot of confusion when traveling between multiple time zones.

😭😭😭 Don’t be late (thinks I’m showing up half hour early) - half hour late. Fml.
Nate Imparato commented
This is a critical improvement. I am amazed that it has not been addressed to date.
Bob McCormick commented
Amazed that this is still an outstanding issue - seems so basic and I concur with just about every other comment I've read here. Since 1883 North American railroads got together and were able to provide accurate arrival at destination times in their timetables. 140 years later and we're still waiting for Waze to be able to offer drivers this basic functionality.

We travel a lot across time zones and it would be a great boon to have this. I love Waze but we've learned that it's just not worth it to use when we are planning a trip cross different time zones. :(
You should show the destination time in the destination time zone. We will have to switch to Apple Maps since this has happened to us before. I am not sure if Google is not allowing Waze to update, but it is ridiculous you cannot change this for 2023!
Please consider adding. I just realized the time change wasn't considered. Almost drove to a funeral arriving 2 hours early unintentionally. This would increase clarity and confidence in arrive time. 🙏🏾

You mean you are working on adding 4 lines of code???

This is the only reason I can't use Waze
Just happened to me. While driving from CST to EDT we wondered if the arrival time took this into account. Another passenger opened Google maps and put in the same destination and IT DID add the hour. So going forward I will be using Google maps when driving across time zones.
For all the cool things Waze does, this one is so basic and needed. At very least add a reminder or notification that time zone is not factored in so we are aware and not arriving late to places! This has caught us off guard a few times and is frustrating.

Have app adjust and project leaving and arrival times per time zones
How can you not have this feature when it is one of the most important things for business travelers to know?
Brian Bezanson commented
This affected our trip and destination tour today. We were late by an hour and needed to reschedule.
Darla Sutton commented
I travel across time zones frequently for work and this is an issue for me.

I remembered why I stopped using Waze when I traveled across time zones. Only, I remembered AFTER I was late getting somewhere. I planned my trip the night before and was STILL late because WAZE didn’t factor the time change (cst to est).
I wish you would either fix this issue, have an alert pop up when the trip is crossing time zones or put the time zone in the arrival time so those of us that plan to leave ahead of time aren’t missing important events or work.
