Since the release of Waze client 3.5 I've begun seeing several parking icons (or at what I'm assuming are parking icons represented by a "P") appearing near my route destination. My initial thought was that this was finally a way to incorporate the parking landmark and have a icon or marker that would allow you to affiliate yourself as having parked at that location or parking lot, but after adding in parking lot landmarks to the map and following map updates no markers appeared for me related to those landmarks.[ img ]
While some of these markers have valid business names, I'm seeing a lot of random names associated with markers that have nothing to do with street names or landmark names. My best guess is that this is some kind of data bleed through that's showing other users' favorite destinations within a certain radius of my destination.Once such example below: [ img ]
This location says something like "Jordan's Gaaaarage"User Error Reports
Users are reporting errors since the naming of these markers can appear like spam. Business names are one thing, but what appear to be someone's parking spot at work or home are another story. In each case I've seen thus far there's no road segment or landmark that contains the name that they've flagged as an error.
Forgive me if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I'm interested in knowing if this is a developing feature or some kind of bug.
