Sometimes I wonder if people's mental capacity is such that they think GPS apps are designed and maintained by State or Federal Transportation Departments.

We have had a number of people on the forum indicate that they believe that cities use Waze to find out about potholes and asking for hazard alerts to stay on the map longer.
With the Connected Citizens program, this might come closer to being true in some major cities: http://youtu.be/AMqbh3rqZRs

No, I didn't mean people USING it to help out the DOT, I mean they often seem to think the DOT *CREATED* and maintains the app, not a private company with the help of volunteers. Help, I've seen people who seem to think Google Maps is put out by the US government.

EDIT: with regard to user reported map issue, what would you say the 'real issues' to 'bogus issues' ratio is (i.e. signal to noise)?


My experience - which is less than most on here, but I think still valuable ;) - has been about 10:1. I can't say that the 10 are completely bogus, but they at least don't contain enough info to solve. I see a lot on interstates and assume that something is showing up on the client that the user doesn't like (eg: instruction to take wrong exit , but the exit falls beyond the UR tracking range, etc).

Hey all,

I received an Update Request saying "roundabout behaving odd", so I fixed it and left this comment:

"This roundabout was not a roundabout, and was behaving odd for that reason. These roads have been given some strong words and told to stop messing drivers around by giving them wrong instructions. Consider this fixed :)"

I was going to put a note in about it's mother being told to have the roundabout treated to ADHD and given Ritalin but I thought that might be pushing it a bit!

Anyone else come across weird Update Requests and ever reply something out of the ordinary to them??
