I can't find that wording. Just the wording for frontage roads.

Well, the adjacent road is locked so I can't add the parking lot road unless I leave it unconnected. I will just do an experiment with the landmark and see if the problem comes back.

I was under the impression that "Parking Lot" landmarks (not all POIs) suppressed the creation of map problems within their bounds. I was looking back at these discussions viewtopic.php?f=10&t=11235&start=50#p93414 and viewtopic.php?f=6&t=11566&p=95284 for clarification of what a parking lot landmark does. It doesn't seem very clear.

Thanks for your replies. I'll just add the parking lot road.

I think Waze was just trying to warn you not to eat that s##t. :D

Or they could be just cutting through the gas station to avoid a red light.

The error comes up because Waze wants to know if the GPS data should be assigned to the adjacent road.

I posted the other day about having to put a Taco Bell drive-thru on the map because it's very close to a one-way street and runs in the opposite direction. Waze thought I was traveling against traffic.

I was under the impression that POI Landmarks were just for decoration and didn't serve any actual purpose for routing or GPS data.

It seems to me to be problem to the extent that wazers are leaving waze on as they get gas. Without the added road (or parking lot landmark), the GPS data might be assigned to the adjacent road and might effect the routing decisions.

In reality, it's not a problem. Waze sees traffic driving through there, and wonders if there's a real road missing, and you tell it "no" by checking "not a problem". However, the problem may continually come back.

If you add a parking lot road through there, it's not going to affect routing during navigation, but you're telling Waze "it's not a problem, but here's a road...shut up about it!"

Most often I've been adding a parking lot road through the gas station. I'm not sure what the "best" way to handle the problem is.
