Agree 100%. Tricky alright.
I can unlock so you can rename it it if you want as it will be awhile before it is complete.
Let me know.

Tricky Bit of SH1

Tue Dec 26, 2017 7:30 pm

Tricky Bit of SH1:


Yes, one small segment. It's signposted (in reality) different ways northbound vs. southbound, and it confuses me every time I drive through.

Northbound, it's signposted SH 1 (as it in Waze). However, Southbound, it is signposted SH 1B (not what Waze has).

Right now, according the live map, southbound to Cambridge via SH1B, it calls out "keep right SH1" which doesn't agree with the road signs (SH1 is exit-LEFT, SH1B is RIGHT) so I panic and decide do I follow the direction or the SH number? I wrongly followed the SH numbers thinking the intersection had changed!

According to https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Navigation_instructions_for_unnamed_segments, setting it as "No name" should resolve this -- it hopefully causes the link to inherit the next name on the route, so it'll get different names depending on which way you're going.

Anyway: Opinions; would this work? Would explicit left/right voice prompts need to be set? The other obvious choice is to split north and southbound into separate roads to give them separate names. (It's 383 meters, so the no-name trick should work.)

I can't edit this anyway, as it's locked L3; but thought it made sense to discuss anyway.

Eventually, this piece of road (post-Huntly-bypass) will be SH 1B both ways (http://www.nzta.govt.nz/assets/projects/huntly/huntly-update-201710.pdf).

Sounds good - if you unlock it, I'll "unname" it and leave a map comment indicating why.

Edit: Done -- will check again in a few days to see what the client / live map does and confirm this fix works.

Bad news; removing the name resulted in no longer listing the exit for SH1 to Hamilton when I test.

(It does 'keep right' for SH1B; although it seems to have no road-name. But that's good enough for me!)

I presume a voice prompt override for "exit left" would fix this. If all three segments https://www.waze.com/editor?env=row&lon=175.20176&lat=-37.61945&s=1186201599&zoom=6&segments=240298683,240298681,307482133 are unlocked, I can fix this, or you can just tweak it.

I would have before, but I forgot to ask for the northern segment to be unlocked too!

(Northbound is okay in my testing.)

Cool, thanks; I've loaded the explicit voice prompts. I think it's the best we can do shy of splitting it in two; which is probably overkill!
