The person who deal with the issue wad not there so I did not have a chance ask. Where did you submit your ticket? I have a faster channel to reach them. I know they did resolve some issues but for the Hong Kong one, they said it is not easy as we thought. Possibly they do not prioritize this :-(

Thank Editot, I nearly reminded Waze once a month of this issue but always has not ETA :cry: . Good to see more ppl to give pressure on Waze and hope it will be sorted out shortly. I'll see some Waze's staffs in the London. I'll try to remember to ask them question.

Just to update all of you guys. I have been told that Hong Kong will be separated from Mainland China in term of driving system in a couple of weeks. So we will have Hong Kong own country name. All segment's naming may have to be amended. I think it is good to have a convention to standardise the road naming format.

I'll update you guys once I get the news ;)

@Editot, it's a good idea. You can send your request to Support.

on paper , yes Hong Kong is part of china, but it's better to divide it on Country

*china drives on left, HK's Right
*no way a normal tourist could cross the boundary by self driving
*even for me, i only tried 2 times, with getting permits in 2 months advance and a huge fee...
*honestly, i wont use waze in China, china's road changes frequently and only waze could provide on names is mandarine "pingyin" english spelling...which is certainly no good for either tourists or local.

editot you're in HK?

As usage develops across China you may find it easier to separate its many Provinces into similar "states".

This is great news. Hopefully Waze may now be working in a script to remove ", Hong Kong" from City names. Started work on Clear Water Bay and Sai Kung already. Also adding the Chinese name.

A quick update, I was advised by waze recently - confirming Leo's earlier comments - a change is in the works. About 3 months or so. Watch this space.
