I think he must have upgraded to Waze 3.8 immediately upon release. If you listen very carefully, you can just barely hear an instance where the new TTS timing occurs at or after the intersection at which you're supposed to turn.

Should have been sponsored by Red Bull instead of Monster. Amirite?

Mapping this would probably provoke a lot of "Missing Bridge Overpass" URs. :roll:
Someone should tell that French guy to not do this kind of stuff with a Mini. Maybe use a 2CV next time...

Hi, volunteer map editor here to solve your problem. What happened?

(I like to imagine that you saw a magician wave his wand and turn all of the boutiques and expensive department stores in Manhattan into a modern cut rate bazaar. But you probably just had a problem with autocorrect or voice input.)

Ahhh... NOT a problem with the map, a problem with a map editor/reporter!


That's probably related to this World Cup nonsense going on right now. The map has become littered with soccer/footballs, and for some reason the majority of them are being delivered to side streets rather than the route you're on. They appear to be floating in no-man's-land because side streets aren't drawn when you're moving at a good clip on your main route.

Those that do reply are generally heavy users and get back within two days, most though after 2 days can't remember where they were when they submitted the report, and also can't remember why.

An adjacent 5-page thread discusses this notion in detail. Agreement centered around the idea of somehow forcing reporters to add a description to a "general error" map issue, probably by sending an automated request that the reporter can fill in when they stop. The UR would not appear until the reporter completes that step. Another idea was to eliminate the driver "first map issue" point bonus. But both of these have to be done by Waze.

Using the great Chrome extension URO+ combined with a personal wiki to hold my favorite boilerplate responses, I have found it goes pretty quick to send canned queries to all the general-error URs with no descriptive text. I'm accustomed now to the depressing fact that maybe 5% of them will respond, but since it's so little effort to send the queries using URO+ and boilerplate, I don't care so much anymore.

I propose that we either
    A- Get rid if it.
    B- Make it a requirement to fill out the comment field.
    C- Being that many drivers report while in motion, Waze should automatically send an email to reporters after ALL map error reports requesting additional info.
    D- When a driver clicks on report map error there should be a pop-up box saying "I agree to be contacted by volunteer Map editors if more information is needed and to provide the best possible explanation regarding this report." The box should have a small check box saying "Do not show this message again".

If you guys agree I will formally request this in the WME feature update requests..(unless it has been brought up already). Thoughts?


I agree to all these points - we definitely need something to stop general errors being reported, then the reporter vanishes into the ether, never to be heard from again. Those that do reply are generally heavy users and get back within two days, most though after 2 days can't remember where they were when they submitted the report, and also can't remember why.

As explained before to me in another thread, and in the wiki, the Overpass report was used in the early days of Waze. However, there are more active editors and the knowledge of the road layout has changed greatly. The need for this report, IMO, is somewhat outdated and should be removed or at least merged/renamed.
