Am not against any one's points or level, but at the same time i wish to make Waze a better community with out fake entries just for the sake of level up and points.


I request you to please post a Permalink. In case you do not know how to post a Permalink, please refer to "Update Request Instructions", on this thread.

1. Abbrevation pronunciation for Indian streets on Waze App:
Many streets in India have some abbrevations that the Waze App doesn't pronunce correctly.
Such as
a. "Dr." is pronunced as "Drive" (Which is right according to the TTS wiki), however in India its actually referred to as "Doctor", as in "Dr. Ambedkar Rd" or "Dr. Kelkar. Rd."


In this instance, ideal naming should be "Doctor Ambedkar Rd"

pmnarsapur wrote:b. Few of the roads in Pune (haven't checked in other places) have "Marg" at their end, kindof meaning a path. However, Waze app pronunces this as "Marginal" or something of that sort. "Marg" is nowhere mentioned in the TTS Wiki as well.

My question is what should be the ideal way of naming the streets in such cases? Should they be corrected according to the way Waze pronunces it and keep the original name in "Alternate name" fields? Or is there any other way.


As long as we don't have a dedicated Hindi TTS, this cannot be corrected. Moreover, as Hindi is not the only language spoken in India, we have a profusion of names all across the country from Marg in the North to Salai and Theru in the South, to name a few. The best solution is to replace "Marg" with "St."

pmnarsapur wrote:For Ex. Street going from Pune to Satara be named as "Pune - Satara Hwy (SH 84)" and street going from Satara to Pune be named as "Satara - Pune Hwy (SH 84)"?


What you have stated is the correct method Puneet. Moreover, please use MH-SH-84, while naming.

To summarize, Waze faces and will face, a number of challenges, which are unique to India. It is our task to overcome these challenges, and to adapt Waze in the best possible manner.

Hey Tushar,

Thank you for raising this topic. lunarplexus and me had a long discussion over this, and have come to a solution, wherein, you would need to map two Gas Stations next to each other. One dispensing Normal Fuel, and the other dispensing CNG. The reason this would work out best is that, as and when Waze activates Gas Prices in India, the prices are Brand Specific.

Like you mentioned, Delhi has numerous Gas Stations which vend different brands of fuel at one Gas Station. To adapt Waze to such a situation, we will map two Gas Stations at the same physical location. The first will carry the normal fuel Brand, the the Second will carry the CNG brand. Every fuel station which dispenses CNG and normal fuel will need to have an additional Gas Station mapped solely for the purpose of showing the CNG prices to Wazers. It will help to name these CNG Gas Stations with "CNG" mentioned at the end of the nomenclature.

I trust this is clear. :)
