"Problem resides in Search Provider" resolution button

Postby sockslabs » Thu Dec 06, 2012 2:08 pm

How about a resolution button that indicates that the problem resides in the search provider, not in the Waze maps? There's just no good resolution to deal with Bing when its search results are off by several miles:

I know the correct location for Shrewsbury HS. The UR knows the correct location for Shrewsbury HS.

I can't fix it, so "Solved" makes no sense.

Marking it "Not Identified" is wrong, as I've identified the problem just fine. But from the user's perspective, the message he gets is either that we're unable to locate something as big as a High School even using both hands, or worse: we don't value his input.

Another of my favorite examples (read the description):

Please allow some means to provide feedback to UR's...
