I wonder if the & might be messing things up...

Try "us rocket center, huntsville, al" as the search criteria.

Searching for locations in another state

Postby cjohnston50 » Sun Mar 10, 2013 4:27 pm

I want to drive from Atlanta to the Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville Alabama. Whenever I search for the Space & Rocket Center, even if I include Huntsville Alabama 35805, I only get results with locations nearby in Atlanta. How do I tell Waze to look in Huntsville? I also tried other search providers like Yelp, but I have the same issue.

I retried the search without the ampersand and the commas and it worked. Thanks!

My search defaulted to Bing, which didn't find anything. I switched it to Waze, which found it.
