In the US. I remember World server routing less than 15m. I believe it still does, but haven't tested it in a while.

System generated problems marked as not identified could prompt IGN editors to get called in to 'fix' things in the area.

URs will just indicate in an email to the user that you couldn't identify the issue and might need more info.

I'll mark them as fixed if it's due to drivers that do stuff they should not.

Sounds good. I've been reading on how Waze will navigate drivers and what options are more/less likely to announce a "Turn Right" or other voice guidance announcement.

Just want to confirm that if I name this new 'u-turn' segment the same as the SR7 highway, that there shouldn't be any Waze announcement given when traveling Northbound on this highway near the new u-turn?

Thanks for the help guys.

I agree with the at-grade connection. As far as a wider view goes, here is a Permalink of the surrounding area. Hope it helps, or is at least is what your asking for:

Understandable. What type of road should I label this as, Street?

Sorry about that:

It's the system error/u-turn area just south-west of the 'B' end of the highlighted segment. Thanks again.

One other thing, if you or another contributor wouldn't mind helping me solve it:

https://www.waze.com/editor/#?zoom=8&la ... TTTFTTTTFT

Here lies another popular issue with Wazers initiating a legal u-turn but flagging a 'Missing road' problem.

Any suggestions?

As The Grinch would say... BRILLIANT! lol

Thank you very much for the help here and for taking the time to explain it to me. I implemented exactly what you suggested, and will keep an eye on it for further issues.

Thanks again for helping me see a little deeper into how a fix can be implemented without adding confusion.

I appreciate the help, but that confused the you-know-what outta me. I took a look at the intersection and tried to apply what you were suggesting. Unfortunately, I think I'm applying what your saying to the wrong segments. If there is any way you can clarify which segments I can make the appropriate changes to, I would appreciate it. Still pretty new to this stuff, and I have a tendency to over complicate things a great deal. Just don't want to make incorrect changes to the maps.

Thanks for all of your help!
