Another round-about problem, different client (IOS).
https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lon=-91.17165&lat=30.41656&layers=1925&zoom=6
North bound on Dalrymple.
Via Dalrymple Dr
depart from Dalrymple Dr
at the roundabout, take 2nd exit
arrive at destination


The problem is that although it IS literally the 2nd EXIT, it is the 3rd 'intersecting roadway' and a stranger to the area is likely to turn on the wrong street.

The current voice behavior as it relates to roundabouts caused me to take a wrong direction on a recent drive (that was thankfully easily corrected). I have attached an image of the relevant section of the drive to this post.

I was travelling southbound on Rockwood Rd. heading toward North St. southbound. Our hypothesis is that the first roundabout was handled "silently" by the client since I was going straight through to the opposite side and so the direction I heard was to take the "3rd exit from the roundabout". Unfortunately this caused me to take the 3rd exit from the first roundabout on to Main St. which caused a bit of a diversion off of the numbered highway I was travelling on.

I am not sure what the answer is here since using directionals strictly on roundabouts may be confusing with "right/left" but maybe if there is a way to make it still give a direction on "straight" roundabouts so I still would have gotten "take the 2nd exit at the round about, then, take the 3rd exit at the roundabout" I would have continued travelling on the intended path.

Just as you entered the first roundabout, you should have heard just the two words "continue straight".

Because this is consisted continuing along the same road, Waze ignores it in the next instruction scheme. So you'll hear the instruction for the turn following the straight roundabout from after the last turn before the roundabouts. (I hope that wasn't too confusing). Then as you ensure the straight roundabout you should hear one announcement to continue straight if you have TTS on.

I too find this confusing and complained about it a while back. I think the roundabout command on the tts/routing server need to be altered to give full instructions for every roundabout. However that could become annoying for those driving in areas where every intersection is a calming circle set up as a roundabout in Waze.

Been having this issue for a while now. On my Note 2, with Waze in portrait mode, the speedometer is under the friends online icon.

Which older version did you have in mind? There is a rollback thread for 3.7.8.
