And my area continues to get automatically-generated map errors in my area from GPS tracks that pre-date recent construction. It's bad enough that the GPS points are months out of date, but evidently they're still processing some of these trips, on ramps that have been completely rebuilt.

And who says speech recognition doesn't work well? :lol:

ASR doesn't work so well without MPR (Manual ProofReading)!

It sounds like, as the routing gets near his house, it takes an indirect route; most likely a turn is incorrectly restricted, or his neighborhood is still partially basemapped. (I took a couple years of Gibberish in high school.)

If you'e standing at the entrance of the house why do you need a GPS to tell you where to go?
Oh, and from the position of the UR on the aerials I can confirm that you are at the entrance to the house.

The same thing happens when you have a shopping plaza built with its back up against a highway, and a big parking lot in front: Waze navigates you to the highway out back and says "Here you go!" That's why, when mapping a parking lot, it is critical to run a segment right along the storefronts.

In this case, you might be able to solve this problem with a minor change in road geometry, or by giving him a driveway. (I'm not saying give everyone in the neighborhood a driveway, just this one case, to make this one Wazer happy.)

Waze's speed data is correlated to time of day*, so it takes time-of-day variations into account. If you're driving slower because overall traffic is slower, Waze's ETA should be accurate. If you're driving slower than prevailing traffic for some other reason, I don't see how any other nav is going to give you a better estimate.

* I'm not sure if it also takes into account weekday vs. weekend, season, holidays etc.

You can emphasize the "exit" as strong as you want, but I'd bet that "at the roundabout, take the exit to the left" from "Rua Garcia de Orta" to "Rua da Estação Agronómica Nacional" will never get a broader acceptance :roll: Even if the roundabout were 1/3 of the size.

IMHO from some 10-15-20 meter diameter upwards there should be only numbered exits. Howgh.


That's why left/right/straight is only triggered on roundabouts with 2 to 4 connections (hence why Y entry/exit triangles should be avoided), and only when the angle between the nodes is 90º +-10 or 15. This means for us in Portugal that when the roundabout is a clear "new" construction over a perfectly aligned X crossing (cruzamento) or T junction (entroncamento), and the roundabout big sign clearly shows the 90º, they should say the keepleft/right/straight. Or in other words, when entering the roundabout you can clearly see the 1 to 3 exits at the right angles.

On some cases with 3 segments that are 120º, I use my own greasemonkey script to assure they are literally 120º and will not ever say any left/right/straight.

Cases like the one I sent (Marquês) have 5 segments (6 because of some complexity on the south side related to the red/intermitent yellow signs) so it will always say exit 1st..5nd.

Anyway I've sent that roundabout because it's a "learn how to drive at a roundabout". The lines on the street are drawn in spiral so people are (supposedly) forced to drive to the inner lane and only start leaving to the outer lane when it's time to exit the roundabout.
Every day I see near-accidents due to people driving at the outermost lane, straight through the exit to leaving on the next or even two exits away, and at the same time smart asses entering the roundabout over the left (outer) lane to then leave right on the first exit, which is a beautiful accident to see when they almost crash into each other.

It looks like this one https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lon=5.81724&lat=52.95802&layers=BFTFFTTTTTTTFTTTTTFTTTTFTT
