And I would be willing to bet that some of what you are asking is listed in the client manuals in the Wiki.

If it is there, it would be great!!
Could you please help me to find it? I looked for it but with no success.
Thanks

Well, I'm feeling :oops: as it doesn't appear to be in the wiki. Sorry.
Thanks for the information regarding the freeway color. I was wondering if there is some information on all the other symbols/colors used in the maps displayed on my mobile screen.

Each classification of road may or may not be a different color. Usually Primary Street, Minor Highway, Major Highway, and Freeway road types will be special colors. Streets are typically white. Unmunched (roads undriven by a Waze user) will sometimes show in a different color, but always with dots in the road. So each color scheme will color roads differently, and I don't see a legend anywhere.

The icons around the map on the screen are covered in each phone's user manual on the wiki.

Other items which appear on the map would be other Wazers and road goodies, which are worth points when you drive over them.

And then there was the recent discussion that ended with a few editors saying all US Hwys were Major and all State Hwys/Routes were Minor, except the portions where those met restricted access (on and off-ramps only) standards.

(Example US Hwy 26 runs from the Oregon coast through Portland and then out east. From the coast, it is a Major Hwy, but turns into a Freeway type in west Portland, then back to a Major in downtown, then back to a Freeway as it leaves Portland concurrent with I-84.)

I have since editing A LOT of Oregon highways to following this version of the road type standard. The entire length of US Hwy 101 in Oregon is a Major Hwy, even though most of it is 2-lane.

How to hold such a conference?

What about areas off the road that are a number with a box around it? I see these all over the map on my phone-and only on my phone.

I live in a rural area, I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

Actually, I was not correct saying that the number was in a box. It is just a number that floats around different areas of the map.
Yesterday, it was an 11 over a river, and random numbers over the fields and woods that I drive by everyday.

The page looks good, but in some coutries, other definitions are used for major/minor highway, primary road, etc.

Can you put a warning at the top of the page that the definitions of the segment types can be different in some countries, and that the reader needs to check the 'national' pages on the wiki to check this?
