Map legend

Postby Viking2506 » Mon Apr 11, 2011 6:24 am

Hi guys,
sorry if I'm asking a silly question. I would like to know if there is a map legend, and if so where I can find it, explaining the meaning of all the symbols and drawings that are diplayed on the maps. For example, I was drinving on a freeway and some of the roads were in yellow some others in brown....Could you please help me?
I have been using waze for a while now and I really like it a lot. Thank you so much for your great work!!

You're talking about the map on your phone? Well, what "color scheme" do you have selected? That will determine the color of the roads.

And then sometimes sections of road will be highlighted in another color when Waze has detected traffic on that road. Yellow is light traffic, orange is moderate traffic, red is heavy traffic and I think there is a darker red that represents complete standstill.

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

I'm using the capuccino color scheme.
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.

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.

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.
