I got a "turn right in 500 ft" prompt earlier today with Waze 3.6 when there was way more than a tenth of a mile left to go. Perhaps it is still mistaking 500 ft for "as soon as you get less than .2 miles away?"

Yes, this bug has not been fixed yet. It is happening as you wrote, due to the code only looking at the 10ths digit: .19 miles and giving the 500ft prompt at that time. Perlin said it would be fixed. But like so many things they say will be fixed, we have no idea when or if it ever will be.

I agree! The only remaining issue is posting a hazard for the "other side" of a divided highway/roadway. As of right now, I'm pretty sure that type of hazard will never alert anyone. The good news is the the pin tilt should give a visual indication even if no hazard alert appears.

sued-18 wrote:Hi AlanofhteBerg, this purple road name indicator in your photo is what I mean when I said 'large road name sign'

Ah, I see. Well, unfortunately, those signs are something which the majority of Wazers have wanted: a better way to see 1) the name of the road they are currently on, and 2) a better indicator of the next road they will be turning onto. The new name labels accomplish that. However, and this was brought up repeatedly in the beta testing, the manner in which these are displayed needs fixing. There are many examples of poor name placement in the beta testing threads. We hope that Waze will continue to refine this new feature.

Waze made this change due to community/users outcry complaining that Mute didn't actually mute anything. The only option we have now is to turn off navigation prompts under Sound settings.

In beta testing, I asked for a tri-state mute option: Mute All, Mute Nav, Off (mute none). We may or may not get this.

Agreed. As noted above in my post in red text, since December, traffic alert popups have not appeared for me at all. Not one except for friends online.

General display bug/issue

I have seen this happen at this location every day for years, but never bothered to report it because it is minor. However, I don't understand how it happens.

The road segment in question is here: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... s=40457442

In the app, when driving along this road, the personal indicator (arrow) has never tracked on the road itself. Never. Ever.

Now, with the new purple route road name indicators, I see that they too are offset from the road location. There is a lack of GPS arrows on that segment despite the fact that I and several other Wazers drive this street every day.

How is this happening?

BUG/Continuing issue with non-optimal decisions being made in determining which street names to display. Yesterday, I ran into the following, which, despite driving this road nearly every single day, I have never seen before.

The road highlighted in green is a private drive and is almost never driven on by Wazers. It is into a private area (equestrian center) and so would never be used for routing. This is an example of a poor choice of segment name to display on the app. Not to mention, the name is very long and goes nearly all the way across the (portrait orientation) screen:

BUG (likely not app-specific, but a problem in the server queries): I ran into an occurence of Waze showing a traffic slowdown on a street connected to the slowdown. This was brought up previously in another thread.

Here's how the Report list looks for On Route in the menu. The issue is with the Spaniel Ct report:

Here is how it looks after I tap on the report from the Reports menu (NOT A POPUP!):

NOTE: THIS IS NOT A POPUP. Despite that these alerts were on the route I am on, and within 5km away or so, I received NO POPUPS. This is clear evidence of the significant and long-term bug with missing popup alerts users have been complaining about since December.

Here is how the view looks at the the location of the street. Note that there is no slowdown on Spaniel Ct, but it is on Murray Blvd, which is connected to Spaniel Ct.:
