Level 5 assistance needed in North East Ohio

Postby kuduboet » Mon Jan 14, 2013 12:41 pm

So I travel the route up and down I-271 between Route 422 every day and the problem is this. There are local lanes and express lanes, in the center, of both the northbound and southbound directions. I choose not to take the express lanes and stay in the local lanes, although Waze tries to push me to the express lanes. I have tried several times staying as far to the right as possible, when nearing the express lane on-ramps, to tell Waze I am staying in the local lanes but it still shows me as going to the express lanes. If I zoom in on the client it shows me in the local lanes sometimes, the express lanes others, and my concern is when reporting hazards etc it is reporting them in the wrong set of lanes. Today I zoomed in and it definitely showed me traveling in the express lanes heading north, but when I pulled up my drive in the editor it shows me traveling in the local lanes? Is there a change that needs to be made to the on-ramps or something to detect when people choose not to take these? This permalink takes you to the one it wanted me to take, and thought I took, even though I stayed in the local lanes. Thank in advance for your help, trying to make Waze a better place for all in NEO.

Funny you asked that, another sent me a PM questioning whether or not civilian GPS could be accurate enough to see the difference. I tested it with my Garmin today and the Garmin clearly stayed in the local lanes and when I was being navigated, Waze "drifted" into the express lanes but when I was later driving with Waze, but not navigating, it showed me staying in the local lanes. So to me it confirms it is some sort of logic issue with Waze when navigating, not an accuracy issue.

Okay, so I tested this this morning running both Waze and Apple Maps at the same and Apple Maps clearly followed my in the local lanes whereas Waze dove over into the express lanes, although I didn't actually go there. The one thing I noticed on the maps is the local lanes in Apple Maps had a pretty good gap between them and the express lanes in the middle, which is the dirt between them, whereas Waze showed them virtually next to each other and maybe that's part of the issue.

Anyone else have any ideas or comments?

So here it is, and as you can see Waze wanted to go left, I stayed right and interestingly it shows my route as staying to the right. But Waze definitely thought I was in the express lanes as it also prompted me 5 miles later to move back over to the right to get into the local lanes for my upcoming exit, so it must be a logic thing, as Waze actually could see I didn't follow it's path but never "recalculated" and adjusted the route based on my staying right in the local lanes?

So if I understand correctly you want me to map error it when it is telling me to get back over into the local lanes when I am already in them>? Is that correct? What is a UR? Thanks for trying to help figure this out

Okay, so I still haven't been able to capture it trying to tell me to get over into the local lanes when I am already there, but I noticed something today that seemed odd to me. Perhaps this is the resolution of the client, but see the image I took of the client and then compare to the permalink of the same area. The two inner express lanes, one going North and the other South, and then the two outer local lanes are very distinct with some decent distance between them in the WME, but on the client they appear as one big lane, with occasional small break offs. The client was zoomed in all the way, is this the lane resolution one would expect for clearly distinct segments? Just to be clear, the local lanes there are three or four of them at times and the express lanes are two, but regardless as independent segments I would expect them to be shown as such? Thanks in advance for your comments

Note I was heading South in the client image so roads are reversed.

Maybe a Waze Champ can chime in just so we know on the resolution issue. Dare I say the other map apps I have like Google, Apple, TeleNav all show the lanes as distinctly different choices so the mobile devices can handle that resolution, maybe it has to do with limited data transfer or something.

I am using an iPhone 4S with the latest version. When you say what settings, what exactly are you referring to? When I took my screenshot I was zoomed in as far as the client would let me be, navigation has show all items on, what should I be looking for? Also, the two express lanes for you still show as one fat single center lane as far as I can see. Thanks.
