    Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
    The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.

    Next to the shortest and the fastest route, I propose the "most efficient route" mode. The idea seems not to be new (someone requested a "blended quickest-shortest route" in the past) but the difference is that I come here with a concrete and simple proposal, rather than only a request.

    The idea is to score each route with:
    Efficiency score = Distance x Time (the lower the score, the better).
    Doing so, route A will be seen as 4 times more efficient than route B if, for instance:
    - route A is 4 times faster than B (for the same distance)
    - route A is 4 times shorter than B (for the same time)
    - route A is 2 times faster and 2 times shorter than B
    - route A is 2 times longer and 8 times faster than B

    Concrete example:
    Route A: 20 km in 35 min by small roads
    Route B: 35 km in 20 min by highway
    Route C: 25 km in 25 min by intermediary roads
    Route A is best in "shortest" mode. Route B in best in "fastest" mode. Route C, although arguably the best compromise between distance and time, is second best in both modes.
    With the "most efficient route" mode I propose:
    - Route A scores: 20 x 35 = 700
    - Route B scores: 35 x 20 = 700
    - Route C scores: 25 x 25 = 625 (most efficient)

    This solves the issue of getting one of the fastest routes, but not at the expense of too long a detour.
    And this would solve my own issue: most of the time, to go home from work, I am proposed a route usually 1 min shorter (12 min instead of 13) but close to twice longer (8 km instead of 4.5) that the shortest route (and selecting the shortest route is also not a solution, because I know it already, and I am actually using waze to know if there is any reason NOT to take the shortest route).
