If it's a real problem, you could work here:

And make sure that this ONLY connects where it's supposed to, and of course make sure other roads work as well. I did this in Louisville on one section that persistently had users going off onto a side ramp and then back onto the interstate. I made it so the ramps ONLY went where they were supposed to, and not back to the interstate, with a bit of extra connection ramps and a parallel path or so.

Here's how I did it there, maybe a similar approach will work for you. Be careful, and trace the paths to make sure you get it right! :)

I see, it does make sense as a mechanism to avoid MPs. And any undue attention to the complexity could certainly be a problem.
However, the following surprises me:
skbun wrote:* The only nav advice Waze will ever give a person coming from I-5 N is to take the left ramp of the two, and in the context of this exit, it's 'straight ahead'. . . . The placement of the bowtie is right in front of the actual road split so the TTS shows the right distance.

I'm surprised drivers coming from I-5 N get any instruction at all there. I would have thought that continuing on the ramp type segments would make that route the best continuation and you wouldn't get an instruction.

If you use a ramp and a turn restriction. Couldn't you then simplify the whole thing by eliminating the four segments and bringing all four junction nodes together as one? I'm not seeing the point of the four segments except to make the one a parking lot segment. And I don't really understand the advantage of the parking lot segment.

I'm curious about the advantages of this configuration? Why the parking lot segment rather than the turn restriction?

Livemap with the navigation addon is usually enough because you can quickly narrow down to the instruction you are looking for, but it can't take into account time-of-day adjustments yet, nor, as you stated, can it give 3 routes. But the nav add-on makes it very clear the type and "written name" of each navigation instruction which is sent to the app. Can't test abbreviations though.

The call to the routing server does accept an argument for "time offset from now" which makes it calculate a route for a time in the future, which can then take into account historical traffic conditions, but there's currently no way to do that in the livemap.

The "set as start point" has been in the app since version 3.1 or something close. It was in 2.4, removed in 3.0 and then brought back pretty quickly due to community demand.

There's a few overlapping ramp segments here (to the west) which seem to be the antithesis of simplified mapping. Why can't they be combined instead of being stacked? Does it have to do with which lane you are coming in on?
