Yes editing has been horrible because of the loading issues. I have had to hard refresh my window sometimes to get is to continue on, otherwise the roads don't even show up after several minutes. :x

Are the URs now represented with a 'broken image icon'? or is it just my computer playing games? :?

Also as someone mentioned above, a way of communicating with the reporters would be extremely helpful. In my area, hardly anyone gives any sort of description along with the UR.

Hi, I hope I'm posting at the correct place.

I just found out yesterday that my editing area of coverage has shrunk from 3000km square to 2800km square.

Another small area which I have about 200km square of coverage is completely non editable any more.

I wonder is there a time frame concern on editable area since I've not visited the small coverage area for more than 6 months.

My other fellow wazers in Malaysia seems to be having the same problem.

Thanks in advance for looking into the matter.

improved map problems and UR look

now purple and green routes are overlying more than before. not very happy about this change. regarding UR handling - we would really need possibility to communicate with UR originator. this was announced as "being worked on" long ago...
Default city in new landmarks based on location

It would be helpful if you run a script which will add default city to all existing landmarks (at least to those with currently no city).
New problem type: "suggested route frequently ignored": this new problem locates places where many users didn't follow Waze's instructions and therefore we assume that something's wrong there.

what if map is correct, but routing servers are offering strange routes, which are often ignored by users (currently users raise Update Requests in such cases). an example - Ori is aware of this one and is able to provide more details.

It was reported on our local forum, that after you save new landmark with default city, it disappears rigth after, so landmark has no address still.

if it looks strange, it's my phone's fault

Make sure that the country is filled in as well. This will cause it to not save. If the country is empty, that is because of the long-standing bug with the landmarks layer being enabled and causing problems like no country in landmark and segments as well as the unable to select segments problem.

Hello Alan, guys,
after creating new landmark, default city+country is displayed until save. but after save and clicking on the landmark again it states no address instead of previously displayed values.
Before I only seen it reported on our forum, today I was able to reproduce it - this Gas Station.

This often happens during map update. Seems this was the case.

That was the case with the old infrastructure, but should not be the case now. It seems they're overloading the servers...


On INTL this is often the case even on new infrastructure. But at least we have updates often.
