I at first thought that the reporter may have been trying to visually navigate until I saw the URs, and there was a Waze-provided route.

Since it's a 166m (~545 ft) segment between Hendrie and Woodward, I think it's an issue where the reporter gets to Hendrie after hearing the "in a quarter of a mile, turn right" but they have not yet heard the "in 500 feet, turn right" instruction. I went ahead and fixed it so that they will not get the quarter mile instruction until just after the potential wrong turn at Hendrie. As an added benefit, to address their proclivity for changing between portrait and landscape, the label for 6th St should appear in front of them for the duration of driving that segment.

Further information: Waze is having the user avoid a traffic light at 6th & Colorado, 7th & Colorado, a protected left @ 8th & Colorado and a flow control light on 8th, and trading it for one light at 7th & Colorado, no stop signs on 7th, and a left onto 8th on the far side of the flow control light on 8th.

Problem: this maybe a general problem but I just saw W 6th street in front of me where S Woodward runs, when I had the phone in landscape mode. Then flipped to portrait it shows 6th Street behind me. Most of the time I have it in landscape mode on my dash. So this is hopefully not a general problem and simply at this intersection of W 6th and Hendrie when traveling SW towards S Woodward. Otherwise this becomes very confusing. I slowed down thinking maybe I had to turn right on what was actually Hendrie. I managed to keep going because I'm familiar with this area but anyone else probably would have turned right.


Your confidence that other people would be randomly switching from Portrait to Landscape while in motion is admirable, but misguided.

The history here is that when waze imports a map it can't tell the difference between a nonjunctioning overpass and a crossroad intersection. Thus, waze initially has every overpass mapped as a crossroads and would give instructions to turn left of the bridge onto the road below. Every overpass that doesn't do this has been edited by an editor. Thus, in the early days "missing bridge overpass" was a heavily used and necessary report. Not so much anymore as the vast majority of overpasses are no longer crossroads on the waze map.


So in other words, a subset of "incorrect junction," which might be better phrased as "No intersection of these roads"

Well, it could be bad junction or missing road. But either way, I have never encountered one where it really made sense. The only thing I could imagine is if one roadway cuts above another, and as the driver passes the other highway, he notices that the map does not depict it at all.


My first edit in WAZE was to fix an overpass near my house where WAZE (and my expensive GPS) both told me to turn onto the street below.

That would be a valid use of that report. But more often, I see drivers that think every bridge should show on their WAZE.
