    I am very curious how this "pause" works when Waze runs in the background ;^)

    My opinion: have Waze distinguish between "pause" and traffic by looking at the movements of the last 2 minutes.... if a car does not move at all, it has stopped for a pause; if it still moves 20-100m per minute, it is in traffic.

    The ability of Waze to calculate alternative routes is a strong one. But it can be made better.

    Currently, Waze offers a few parameters that influence the calculation of routes. "Fastest", "Shortest", "Avoid Highways", "Minimize Turns", and "Prefer cookie-munching". Offcourse the routes that are calculated always are a trade-off: often a route without highways is not entirely possible or impractical; some turns always must be made and nobody expects "prefer cookie munching" to route through ALL roads with cookies.

    By calculating alternative routes you get 3 routes of different length and duration. You can compare the different length and duration, and select whatever is best for you. But if you are interested in cookie munching, you can not see how many cookies the different routes bring**. If you prefer to minimize turns you can not see which route has the fewest.

    Suggestion: Show a few more values for these alternative routes, and show them sorted by one of these values.

    Also, a preference for different road-types could go in. Avoid highways, freeways and dirt-roads. Avoid ferries (we do not have them yet in Waze, but...) Prefer non-toll-roads. Have all of these prioritized.

    **) Currently, if you have "prefer cookie munching"on, you do not get alternatives at all. I consider that to be a bug and hope Waze will work more consistent in a future release.
