I will also look for these examples, though it's less common in my area.

But here's my question (though it may be better placed in the "feature request" category): Wouldn't it help if when Waze routes through a U-turn, that the nav trace be altered so that the actual "U" is visible? So you'd end up with the purple line doubling around at the turn and displaying as two lines next to each other, with the "U-turn at X St" announced via TTS and in the top navigation menu bar?

It would be unfortunate to disallow all those U-turns currently (and accurately) enabled.

There is a UR here for the old route to a enabled U-turn at the end of a dead end road to reverse direction problem.

Today this segment showed a U-Turn on my client app when I was coming from the SW on that road. It was trying to get me to turn around. Funny thing is it could have simply turned left at the intersection, but at the moment it happened, I had taken the wrong turn (wasn't paying attention) and it automatically recalculated the route trying to get me back to the road to the SW. The map shows no U-Turn is even possible there. I can send a screenshot of my client if required.

Like the prior entries the route comes to a point on the screen, but the next turn indicated was the turn I would have taken "after" the U-Turn would be executed.

Based on a PM with Noam, they are looking for more of the second one, but if anyone has any of the first one they can use that as well.

Hi Noam,

Are you referring to occurrences of dead-end U-turns being used in routing as turn-arounds, or the separate issue we've been discussing here about U-turns on two-way segments displaying misleading prompts (for the next turn, rather than for the U)?

Thanks,

Otto

Thanks for the information. I have been gone for a week or so with internet that was to slow to be able to access the map or forums. Trying to get caught up.
