1. Putting back name of streets and areas in both English and Chinese.
2. Looking for better ways to update map. Buildings are too high and flyovers always block away GPS signals.
Nice to see the HK forum, here is at least some activity, hope that will change in the China forum as well, working on it
Presently I am doing some basic work on the Shanghai map, and I had the same thoughts as tomchiuckc to increase waze awareness by putting road names in Chinese and Pinyin. Chinese won't use waze if no Chinese road names are available!
Anyhow, a first try and I can see in the WME nothing as rectangular shapes on place of the Chinese characters. Same problem seems to be with Korean characters (I had a short look to the Seoul map).
Basically I got two questions:
Does anyone has an idea how and if Chinese charaters will be displayed in the actual application for the user later?
Would it be better to use Chinese and Pyinin in the raod name itself or using roadname and alternate road name?
Thanks for your replies and suggestions!
