I495 on long island
When driving to Long Island, waze insists on traveling on I495. There are so many parkways without trucks on Long Island that you can make better time, yet every time I travel to Long Island it heads towards 495. Today I headed up Northern Parkway,, which waze was heading to eventually, in 8 fun filled miles of sitting. I got off when I saw a sign to Northern Parkway, 4 miles earlier, and took 3 minutes off of my time. I love waze, but Long Island driving is not waze driving. It stears you towards the interstate!
@YogiJB All Long Island parkways are classified as FW the same as the interstate, so pruning won't kick in. I am not getting any of the same routing issues as the original poster, so I hope that they eventually do post in the waze forum link I passed on so the map editors can assist futher.
Was your trip longer than 100km / 60 miles? It will have an impact.
