At the World Champs meetup, Ohad heard we are (ab)using the UR system to leave notes for ourselves. He promised to investigate if it was possible to add a 'note to self' mechanism, something like a UR that is only visible to the person that made the report.

Took me to Apple maps, but those look just like the old gmaps...

I have seen a couple of Update Requests: 'missing stop sign'.

The level of accuracy in routing to a particular storefront within a strip mall is what we should be worried about. I think I'll go make separate landmarks for every store in the strip mall to enhance the navigation experience. ;)


A lot of this depends on the POI provider that the Wazer chooses. Bing results tend to route to a location on a mapped road vs. Google results which are more likely to have the destination off of the road and at the actual location in a shopping center, mall etc.

Of course Google may be better if the Wazer expects to know exactly where the POI is. But this is complicating the mapping in Waze since we then need to deal with the horrible support for Parking Lots in Waze.

Here's a good one! Apparently this is one vote against more communications for the WME Update Request system. This Wazer is really jolly.

"wtf. I keep sending this and I keep getting emails asking for more details. this pos told me to get off a main road, now it's going to put me back on on. it needs to keep people on main roads instead on residential streets! and please don't email me about it."

Am I a bastard for marking it "Not identified"?


Here?

They were things like "no it's not here its still down the road" and "ok I am here now"


Did you mark them as solved or "Not Identified"?


If I don't make an edit to the map or know that an edit was made to correct the issue since the last map tile update, I mark as 'not identified'.

The risk here is that the Wazer will get the email and then try to figure out how to fix it themselves. Likely they can't fix the issue since the data that needs to be fixed (POI and Street address lookups) is external to Waze. But I really think solved is not the appropriate response since it is surely not solved.

Best case is the Wazer finds the forum and get search for or ask for help. Then it can be explained how the POI and address lookups function and that likely the best approach is to correct the source data (if it is clearly incorrect), or understand why it works like this.

Sorry, I didn't notice 'Cartouche'. I wouldn't do anything with those. They are obsolete.

"the entrance to Costco is here not on Fenton Parkway. I don't get points for reaching mt destination because I enter the Costco lot from a different dire tion than you register on your maps"

No points since you didn't reach your destination? That's a new one.
