I was looking at the wiki : http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/At-Grade_Connectors
Specifically that : "when the area is "busy" enough that the driver may not get any advance warning that a turn is coming up--in which case a connector lets you notify the driver a little earlier"
I have a good example. : https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... s=69802438
I drive this route every day to work, and I have yet to have the app give me the warning to get into the right lane in time, I assume because the lane that exits you onto the highway starts more than 200 meters/yards from the actual turn you make (combined with the 40mph speed limit).
So I added a longer segment ramp. After the server tiles update I drove this way and still did not get the turn warning until well after the intersection at brown rd to the north.
So I re-did the segment to what you see currently, hoping that would cause the client to warn drivers a little sooner that they need to get over.
I can't tell you how many times I've seen people in the left lane prior to the brown intersection, try and shoot over 3 lanes to go S on the highway. It's also a busy area during the morning rush hours. To make matters worse when you drive this section of road the proper turn lane to go S on the highway looks like an acceleration lane for the apartment complex, then immediately looks as though it's a lane to get into the car lot. Instead it continues on up the curved hill to the exit lane.
My goal is to have the client give the turn/lane instruction prior to the brown rd intersection
Is this the proper way to make this segment so that the client will give an earlier lane instruction?
Where can I find a better explanation of how the client gives instructions based on what it "sees" on the map?
Use Case: user is navigating to South I-270 and is driving in the left lane of McDonnell Blvd prior to Brown rd. I think the client should be giving a "get in" or "stay in" "the right lane" instruction just prior to the brown rd intersection, and then giving the exit right instruction after the brown rd intersection.
