;Alternate Route :What Waze compares a route to - when evaluating a detour route, the direct route is the evaluated alternative.
Waze makes a few checks on an off-highway '''detour''' to see if it should be prevented. It checks the length of the '''detour, '''makes sure the ''road type'' changes, and that the name is ''not'' continuous with the highway the route detours from. It also checks that there exists an '''alternate route''' that is direct - the '''direct route''' must have both continuous road type and name continuity, which is described in further detail (see details below). Waze does not consider how many 'turn...', 'keep...', or 'exit...' instructions are issued on any of the paths it checks for detour prevention.
