I've had conversatations like this:

<Reporter> Didn't take me to the right location
<me> Let me know the exact destination address and I'll see what I can fix here, thanks!
<Reporter> The location I was navigating to
<me> I don't have that information, I can only see about 500 feet around where you were driving
<Reporter> <crickets>
... 4 days later.. Marked Not Identified.


And I've sent reports like:

"This is where this grocery store with an address of 'foo' should be. Not on the other side of the tracks, in a park."

And have gotten responses of "That's nice. Waze uses data from X to set locations and we're not changing it."

…"the map error you reported was fixed by [REDACTED]"

I know there used to be a Naval radio station that broadcase bulletins in morse code on short waves and medium waves. The call sign was NSS, but I don't know any thing about kennels or Nero.
I think I'll cut my losses and mark it 'unknown' and close it.

Maybe it's a numbers station......... :cry:

His wife happened to be following up. She's half Swedish and half ancient Roman. I think the "djembe" is due to autocorrect and she probably doesn't know Swahili...

Who or What is a "Manuel Arechar"?

His name is Manuel Arechar. He is a native spanish speaker, and his Waze language is set accordingly. He received a long UR response in English, which he doesn't know well enough to respond. He is trying to report for jury duty in Los Hurd. Either that, or you made him upset and he is insulting you according to "hurd" at urbandictionary.com.
