The GPS tracks could be dating back as far as 2009. We know they haven't updated them in several months, and I currently have a solid stream of tracks in a spot where there hasn't been a road in almost 3 years.

That layer is mostly reliable because that kind of change doesn't happen very often, but you can't count on it to win an argument.

EDIT: I take that back...I just checked the two locations where roads have been completely removed (one back in '09 or '10 and the other in the past year) and they both are completely devoid of GPS tracks. This wasn't the case a few days ago where I had MPs at each spot advising me that a road was missing. So maybe we're getting an update.

Here's some info. Looks like they were doing a study about turning one-way streets into two-ways. It shows that 1st was one-way southbound from Main to Oak prior to the study. I didn't read the whole thing, but it doesn't look like the final results were, but if anything it was converted to a two-way as the Bing aerial shows, and the 5-year old streetview image is out of date.

Yes, yes it did... Unless you are trying to tell me that's NOT where you wanted to go...


Side note/rant: We REALLY need two way communication with the users...


Well, if it was "in the middle" of a cemetery, rather than "near" a cemetery, it seems like the Wazer couldn't have been all that dissatisfied with the routing.

Ok, but how can I update the map to help? The roads are still open...


Type the words "CONST ZN" on each road segment, which will probably generate more URs because it won't be pronounced properly in TTS.

Waze route and the route they took show them turning left. I hate a thief that takes lefts and complains about it.

I signed up for an account with one of them and submitted a bunch of changes of addresses and POIs but now I can't remember which one. Probably Bing. I'll have to go back and try to find it.
