Is there a bug with the shields for highways? I noticed with the last tile update, some highways that were labeled XXX N or XX S had shields and some didn't. I remember a thread a long time ago about the absence of shields on some roads, and whatnot, but has that been figured out?

Yes. It is non functional. Waze is supposed to give us more direct control over shield type and info in a future editor version.

Alan,

I know the Wiki says to use the primary route (interstates and such) when a road is considered to be two different routes. Any word if they are looking into dual shields for those sections that have two?

They're starting to appear where they weren't before. I have the first shield in San Antonio since I started using Waze, 3-4 months ago.

Well, if they can disappear without any of the programmers being able to explain it, it makes sense that the opposite would be true.

I too am seeing shields (for US highways) in the client now that have been missing for some time.

Don't get too excited yet... I noticed a shield yesterday and then no more. Marked it and checked it out in the editor when I got home. Found out it was ONE segment that was named State Hwy,.. the others were named State Rd.

This is our constant headache here in Florida. Hopefully, having the ability to assign shields in WME is a feature coming sooner rather than later :|

I've also seen state hwy shields in the last two days which I would swear up and down were not there just days ago. Perhaps they are trying to regenerate them again? Either to buy time or to prep for giving us better control in the editor? As usual, we have no clue what they are up to.

I took a look just for kicks, and found that a lot of I-86 in my area is now shielded again, but parts of it aren't; also, I-390 isn't showing shields here. Again, due to the awesome communication we always get from Waze :roll:, we really don't know what's going on ... but any return of shields is better than none, I suppose. :?
