20 yards?!?!?! You're concerned about 20 yards? Just consider the technological marvel that is the miniaturized computer that triangulates your position from nuclear clocks in satellites 12,600 miles away which transmit only ~50W of signal. The fact that you're not satisfied with 20 yard accuracy demonstrates just how jaded we've become with our amazing technological feats.


This is what is known as a First World Problem.

They're probably expecting the search to match what the map shows, not know that one has nothing to do with the other. Since that's an extremely active Waze area, and most of the Champs have been there, there are probably landmarks for all the big names throughout silicon valley.

Once again, we will get right on this map issue. What's a map issue vs. an app issue not clear to most users.


I have the same issue when I'm not wearing my glasses.

my map error is this, why would you ever tell anyone to take the 405? please advise against this at all times. you just cost me 50 extra minutes and God knows how much in gas.


I have now degraded the Interstate to dirt/4x4 road to improve routing.


Parking Lot might be more appropriate...

I'll bet she had the Male navigation voice on, and that's why she didn't follow the Waze instructions!

The Californians wrote:My best guess is Waze wanted her to take I10 to the 57, while her husband's GPS wanted her to take I10 to the 15 to the 91 (UR was in the parking lot of Angel Stadium). So Waze didn't tell her to exit on 15 (I assume that's what she meant by Riverside exit), because it didn't want her to take the 15, and then when she did, it kept telling her to get off the freeway, so it could have her get back on the opposite direction to take her to the 57.

10->15->91 is shorter, however 10->57 is often significantly quicker due to traffic on the 91.

That reminds me, is Southern California the only place where people preface the freeway with "the"? I've done a fair bit of traveling around this country, and I don't think I've noticed it anywhere else. Take "the" 210 to "the" 101 and then head south until your hit "the" 5.


I heard it in San Francisco and San Jose. So I think it's all of California.

How far does it need to stick out? The user managed to find the exit.


Obviously Maude avenue should stick out just like Bea Arthur's Adam's-apple. :lol:
