As it happens, I have on more than one occasion accidentally
taken Waze's route through there. I'll be heading somewhere generally to the north, hear the prompt say to keep right onto Atlantic Blvd, follow the instructions without thinking (that would be the correct route for a number of places I go), and then I hear the instruction to turn left onto Oak St, and it hits me... What the...?!? Not again!! And then I sit there interminably on this
segment, which always gets jammed up by In-n-Out Burger drive-thru traffic and the majority of drivers who wish to head eastbound on Huntington Dr from there. This is why I was hoping that someone could actually see the speed data and determine if one of these segments is fouled up somehow. Perhaps I have misunderstood references to this possibility elsewhere in the forums.

The path travels from no city to city to no city and the street name change from Garfield to N Garfield (but that should not cause any issues) and on the dog leg there is a "node has 1 U-Turns." at Oak St & Avonrea Rd (so why would it route that way?)
So the next thing is it must be traffic???...
This is one reason why I never feel that I can count on Live Map to produce an accurate representation of the route the client will suggest. I know that they are supposed to use the same routing algorithms, but there's something else in the soup that causes them sometimes not to jibe. South Pasadena, San Marino, and Alhambra meet like jagged puzzle pieces at this intersection. That's the reason for the (correct) change from Garfield Ave to N Garfield, and for the segments with no city names. Address numbers are chaotic around there, different in some places on opposite sides of the street, postal codes disagreeing with city boundaries, and so forth. It's no wonder navigation is a mess. So the only reverse connection you found was on one of the side streets?
