I think words in all-caps like this are automatically read out as their letters, i.e. arr eff kay, so the dots in between are not necessary, IMHO. This would also make the phrase shorter and allow more text to be displayed in the "next-turn banner" of the client, which is particularly valuable in the upright "portrait" mode.

The only caveat here seems to be the letters used to indicate your cardinal directions (E, N, S, and W). On more than one occassion has the Waze client read "NY Thruway" as "north why thruway." Not sure if that's a bug or there's just a different way acronyms with those letters need to be entered, but I just thought I'd point it out.

BTW, kudos to anyone brave enough to take on New York City. I drove out to Queens the other day and the map around Brooklyn and western Queens looked like there was all kinds of work to be done. Keep up the good work!


The FDR Drive is written "F D R Drive". I'm not sure the history there, if FDR would have worked.

My guess would be that letter-by-letter pronunciation of words in all-caps is something that was recently implemented by Waze, much like the SR and CR acronyms for state routes and county roads. The F D R with spaces was probably an older edit before this functionality existed.

147) Ramp name needs some fixing (colon inserted, space by dashes removed..etc)
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... s=32026994

148) These segments need fixing. Either they are both ramps, 1 ramp, etc.. but it needs cleaning up.
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&lat ... 7,69852519

149) Allow straight 'turn' for segment:

147.) Cleaned up a bit. I'm going to play with it some more while I am on my next conference call.
148.) I already fixed that this morning ;)
149.) Done.

EDIT: I massaged 80 between 280 and 287. Do you know if the local to express crossover for I-80 W still exists around Exit 45? It isn't mapped right now.
