Re: Navigation does not seem to learn

I drove down a specific road at least 4 times in each direction, in different days, and after a week, the road still shows as un-munched.

Huge parking lots

One of the pitfalls of collaborative map editing is that sometimes things can get screwed up. One such example that I see often is huge parking lots that cover tens of square miles. Right now, most of SF Bay Area's East Bay is covered by two enormous parking lots: http://www.waze.com/cartouche/?zoom...

Re: Waze gets incorrect GPS position by 20+ meters

When a road is actually a two way, but the server thinks it is a one way in the opposite direction, the client thinks "You can't be on that road... that's a one way in the opposite direction, you must be over here". This is another way to try to compensate for GPS drift. I'd like to sugge...

Re: Battery Life / turn off screen?

This indeed would be a great idea - have Waze automatically turn off the screen until new route incidents or directions happen or are upcoming.

Mapopolis does this.

On my Samsung Galaxy, Waze never turns off the screen, even after disabling Backlight.

Re: Street suffixes vs. names

OK... then Waze maintainers, please remove the Suffix drop-down, as it only confuses people?

Waze gets incorrect GPS position by 20+ meters

I've often seen Waze 1.3.1.0 on Android getting confused as to which street I was, in Santa Clara, where there is no urban canyon or tree foliage, and GPS signal was strong. Often, Waze would place me on a different street more than 60ft/20m away, even when I was stationary (parked at the curb of on...

Street suffixes vs. names

When editing a street, there is a dropdown called "Suffix", with values No Type, Road, Bouelvard, Avenue, and Alley. How should we use this field? For example, I changed the street name of "Rose Ave" to be just "Rose", and I selected "Avenue" from the suffix. ...

Re: Reporting road construction work ?

ariesboy, where did you enter that suggestion? Is there a public list of suggestions? It would be great to at least mark a (portion of a) street as blocked , so that Waze will not route through it. Right now, I can report a street blocked by construction (as a "Hazard"), but Waze will keep...

Re: SUGGESTION: View route in list form

Currently not - the data is sent to the server and used for building the tiles. What you can see on the map are the tiles data and temporarily recorded roads (when you record them). I have seen this today, in Waze 1.3.1.0, by accident. I did some sort of swipe/tap and I saw a list of all the route ...
