Yes, I made some map corrections for TOPMAP (Nav&Go's cartographer company) earlier and it takes more then 2,5 year to implement the track and the corrected errors that I have reported. And they were the most "user friendly" company in the cartographer companies, so "Think it again!" ;)

It doesn't happen often but I've seen a few, it's a basemap import error I think.


I found one in Hungary, too. So it is not exactly just a basemap import error.

All part of the segments was modified (created) in marc 9. 2011.

Yes, You're right.
Otherwise, there is an option in preferences file for the toll roads, but it is not working.

Yeah, the option to map toll-roads should be there really soon, but it can take some time to implement routing based decisions on that (or at least, that's how I understood it).

Thank you dmcconachie for your summary, really interesting for us who were not there.

About the toll roads: I think I have seen the toll roads option mentioned as already available for the French users. By the way, when you were in Paris have you seen the "avoid toll roads" in your clients? Maybe refresh and/or switching to French language was necessary?

fvwazing wrote:All that is missing is a Papyrus that lets one enter the cost of the road


Toll roads - yes. Calculating the cost - no. This may be too complex. In my area the cost of the toll road depends on whether you drive a passenger car, lorry, bus, have a trailer etc. In some areas the cost may not be linear: cost of driving from A through B to C may not be the sum of driving from A to B and from B to C.

AlanOfTheBerg wrote:Toll roads needs to be a check-box attribute option, not a Road Type! Minor, Major and Freeway road types could all be toll roads.


Absolutely yes, and not limited to the highways. What about ferries over the rivers? In my area some are paid but almost all are in the rural areas on the roads marked as Primary Street or just Street.

:o And Jenni probably too. Except she's just in her skivvies.


I concur. No "ladies", at least in Waze world, just chicks! And anyone who refers to me as a "lady" risks a punch to the gut... but I did notice the alarming absence of chicks at the waze-meetup. And the editor t-shirt sizes? Only L and XL? Perhaps something to lounge around in while waiting to hear back from URs?

Sadly, the cost of my self-imposed waze timeout is that the open URs have gone from 7 to 47 pages :cry:
