Are you designating them "I-H1" or just "H1"?

I don't know the answer, either, but perhaps worth investigating.


Yes, in this permalink, the only minor highway shows a shield in the client:

Anyone have the scoop from Waze on Shields yet?

I've been doing some fixes around St. Robert MO area. Check this out...

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=2&lon=-92.18755&lat=37.82418&layers=BFTFFTTTFTTTTTTTTTTTTFT&segments=28432621
This area has since been updated, but "SR-17" + Minor Hwy type = this in the client

The name "I-44 Loop" + Major Hwy type produced the shield icon in the client:

The actual Interstate is set to freeway and named "I-44 E" and "I-44 W" but does not produce the shield icon.

So the "Loop" / "Business" / "Spur" 's are producing the Shields in the client (I assume cause they are set to Major Hwy), but if you set segments to Freeway you don't get them ?

Right now, it appears to me that if you want the shield icon, you have to have the name + type set specifically before they display.

Has anyone else duplicated these results?

From what I understand, putting the cardinal directions in I-44 E, it wont produce a shield. They were trying to get Waze to accept the cardinals for shields, but nothing yet.

Not true. Look at the 4 permalinks I provided a few posts ago. I showed 4 different sections of interstates around Texas and all four are labeled differently. Some produce shields and some don't. I can attest that "I-37 S" in San Antonio produces a shield, but "I-37 N" does not.

Yep it's basically hit or miss. I see shields more often where there is a space after the hyphen (I- 15) but I see the occasional shield where there is no space. And all the segments in my state have a direction coded after the number. (I-15 S) (I- 15 S) (I-15 N) (I- 15 N) A while back I thought it had reverted entirely to needing the space but now I've found segments with both, that generate shields and segments in both formats not having shields.

It sure seems that way. But it's computer code, and there's got to be a work-around. If we can discover it, we can temporarily "game the system" into showing the icons when and where we want.

I'll do some experimentation and see what I can find out. In the mean time if anyone reading this has the "magic line" to the dev's at Waze... Pretty please let us know some info. Be it a work around, or a snipped of the code logic for when to display the shields, etc. Maybe something can be done.

Or we can just leave it alone and concentrate on more important things than shielding. The key is to get everything to follow the Wiki standards so that when they do fix things on their end, everything will start working at once.

I originally renamed them to I-H1 W and the like but they didn't create shields so I renamed them back to W H1 Fwy and the like and had them manually create shields based on my permalink of the selected segments. I may do the same for the state and city highways as local naming conventions use names instead of numbers but they do exist
