I'm new to Waze, so I hope I'm not asking a dumb question, but how can I tell how a road is defined in the map editor?
I have been experiencing similar problems to what you are describing when having avoid highways turned on, but the roads I prefer to travel are often one or two lane highways and it seems like Waze is still ignoring them.
I'm in the Seattle area and had to take a trip from work to a doctor's office (eastside to seattle trip). If anyone on this thread is familiar with the landscape here, this area is separated by a large lake and provides several ways to get across or around it. You can go directly across it by taking 520 or 90. Or you can go around it via I-5 (around the north or around the south of the lake) OR you can go around the north via 522 (a lesser highway, that has some traffic lights and is a little slower -- sometimes). 520 now has a toll on it as of last month, however, I usually like taking 522 over the other routes. No matter what settings I use (avoid highways on or off, minimize turns on or off), 522 doesn't even appear as an option. In fact, on the way home from the doctor's, all 3 routes I was presented with tried to cross 520 and I have avoid highways on. I don't understand what it is trying to do.
I'm trying to include a permalink, but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. I selected the route I took and viewed it in the map and clicked on SuperPermalink. Is that right?https://www.waze.com/cartouche_old/?zoo ... TFFFFFTTTT
