Removal of Navigation List in client

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Mon Sep 26, 2011 5:52 pm

Update 1/2/2012: Due to the navigation list being added back into the client beta, this poll has done it's job and is now closed. Thank you everyone who voted!

You're reading this topic, please vote! Don't leave without voting!

With the Waze 3.0 beta for iPhone, Waze is making a lot of changes to the interface. One such change is the removal of the ability to set departure point on the map (destination is still available), but a bigger change which I am not in favor of, is removal of the navigation list. Together with departure point setting, this is a useful tool for drivers, but also a very useful tool for map editors to get first-hand turn information for changes made on the map, without having to actually drive there or wait for an update request to come in.

I use that feature A LOT, especially when checking to see if my edits work as expected.

That would be new functionality which doesn't exist anywhere else yet. I haven't heard anything that this is planned.

being able to test routing in papyrus would be amazing, but i have a feeling it would be technically difficult.
Either way I would want the navigation list in the client. I often want to know several turns ahead of time when i'm in a strange place, especially if someone is following me and wants to know in case we get seperated.

Not with just Waze, but I suspect there are others that use this feature. One for me was using a Nuvi to see a route across the country. It aided me in planning my trip. It will be missed if it disappears.

Removal of Navigation List in client

Postby gettingthere » Sun Oct 02, 2011 4:31 pm

The thing here is that this should not have to be in User Voice nor have to receive votes. It's previous functionality that is not present in the Waze 3 app beta.

Just ADD it back in Waze!

Please bring back the Navigation list. I'm in Southern California and (unless you are going south to Palos Verdes!) there's always more than one way to get there. I need to know where Waze is routing me because it often doesn't come up with the fastest route . . . shortest or fewest turns, yes, but not always the quickest. So, please, please, bring it back! I don't want to have to start using Google Maps again.

Aside from area managers using this to check routing, I think it's an important feature for the everyday user too. The most important element is being able to see (from a turn-by-turn basis) how Waze is going to get you to the place you're going. This is very helpful if you're driving somewhere unfamiliar and want to make sure you don't miss a turn or an exit — I've found that sometimes its important to know the exit number versus simply "turn right in one mile."
