Change all the segments with the incorrect city name to have the correct name. Use the color highlighting script to help in identifying the segments.

There is currently an issue Waze is working on related to incorrect names and "smudges" which are not being removed by the system after all affected segments have been fixed. Though we'd explained it before, it seems like this week, they finally "got it." I would hope that they could get a fix put in some time in the next two weeks.

Alan,
On the same note, I corrected several of those in Lincoln & Omaha, NE where the city was showing up as a single letter or was misspelled. When do those actually update in WME? I just checked all of them that were updated 12-13 days ago and they still show on the map incorrectly.

Thank you,
Derek

How do I change a city name like the following which says, " Stone Wall" and it should be Stonewall? Thanks in advance.

Can you show me where to find this color highlighting script information? I use FF.
