An organization that rents lights, sirens, and medical equipment to out-of-towners who need to feel like in-towners, until the excitement wears off

A company that sends packages/parcels to those who feel left out when all their neighbors get packages at their door and they don't.

A company that takes all your garbage, sorts it, and puts it in the right bins, in the cities where they are pedantic about it.

There are "groups" that do this. ;)

Google maps sort of does this. When routing you, it shows in gray other potential routes and how much longer or shorter they would take if you pick them. And it constantly updates along the journey.

Hot tip: you didn’t save any time. None of the apps are great at predicting shortest travel time and reacting to real time conditions; all time savings compared to other routes is imaginary as well.

If it's the shortest route there is no alternate.

I've recently noticed on Google maps that it's routing me in very squiggly paths. Their algorithm definitely changed for me. I don't like it.

Could it be that you by mistake hit "avoid tolls", "avoid highways", or one of the other options in settings? That happened to me a few times.

GPSs seem to be programed to take you on the Turnpike if it's at all possible even if other routes are quicker.

Android auto used to tell me how much faster I got to my destination then the initial estimated time. It stopped doing that though, and I'm guessing it's because it was leading to people using that as a metric to beat.

It really annoys me that they removed it. It was my personal sport.

Same. I sometimes changed my destination and just showed up unannounced at random houses if I saw there was a traffic buildup on the way to my original destination.
