How about North Korea?

In the middle of the display is a lake. Zoom in one level and half of it disappears. Zoom in again and it's all gone.

tmd63 has been posting about it here.

Here.

Roads change depending on the zoom level

Farther out I zoom, older the displayed tiles get.

Will the address database continue to be used by Google maps or will Livemap behave the same as the waze application?

We are planning to change that, but there's no time table yet. It's a complex issue, so bear with us :)

It would seem that the app tries to navigate to the location in the URL no matter what value you put in the property "navigate". Usually you should be able to add "&navigate=no" to the URL to have the app just display the location.

It seems that the waze:// URL used in the button always has the navigate property set to true (it ends with n=T all the time). Would it be possible to tell me whether it is still possible in some way to adjust that behaviour through the URL?

An example for a question I saw on StackOverflow: https://www.waze.com/livemap?ll=-47.910 ... avigate=no

As you may or may not know, many countries in Europe switched from a Toll roads system in Waze to a "toll sticker/vignette" system in the form of HOV and Toll passes to add from the navigations menu.

This works great in the App if you've added the right pass, but the Livemap seems to be having trouble since passes are not selectable.

I'm aware of the URL tricks to get RBS, Taxi and Motorcycle modes, Avoid tolls, danger zones, ferries or dangerous turns.. But what do we do for passes?

I honestly don't know how many people make use of the Livemap in the countries that switched to this system, but it seems that right now it has become unreliable due to this change, as it will always choose non-pass-required roads making the ETA's wrong for the majority of people trying to find the fastest route with it.

Any short-term solution for right now? And any other long-term solution on the road map?
