Great, let the chaos begin. And it was a little bit weird to see that the Waze took time to change restriction arrows (I don't know what was wrong with the older ones) but such an important thing like to be able to enter a proper address was left out of it. Nice update

I disagree. It's an iterative process. The perilous implementation had no ability for non-numerical. Can't say why, I don't know. The new version is a new interface and some more abilities on top on the existing ability. Next will come addresses with alpha and other characters.


It certainly does appear to be perilous!

Add India to the list of countries where non-numeric addresses are the rule and purely numeric addresses an exception.

In rural US, 2350A may be several hundred feet away from 2350B and be several hundred feet away from 2350C in the other direction.

As others have commented, not allowing for non-numeric numbers is just plain laziness on the developers part.

We've gone from specific address points to ranges and back to specific points again over the years actually. But even with the specific points I understood the idea was to be able to figure out what was between points as well if every address was not entered.

In the end it doesn't matter why -- they were lazy and only planned for numbers. They realize that will need to change, but we need to live with it until then.

I think that was the old system that was available until two months ago. I know that in January I was able to enter the start number and end number for a segment.

This is a totally new system from what I have read. So that made sense from the old system not for the actual one that is going to be implemented.

And FYI Waze is NOT only thinking of the US in this approach -- there are many places in the US that have non-numeric addresses as well. One is Queens NY (where I was born) which has 2.2 million people and would be the 4th largest city in the US if it wasn't part of New York City. Addresses there are in the form 123-45 where 123 is the cross street and 45 is the house number.

And just about every city has in-fill properties that end up with an 'A' or a half suffix. Like between 8 and 10 would be 8A or 8 1/2.

Why did Waze start that way? Because they originally wanted to be able to define the first and last address on a segment and let the system fill in the blanks. That works easily with numeric values but falls apart for non-numerics.
