I too have looked in to this issue trying to fix the map without any luck... very annoying. It seems to be anywhere East of HWY 102 and South of the Airport.

I know it's just an incorrect place name but I use Google Navigation instead of Waze because it irritates me seeing "Beech Hill" on almost every local map when the place doesn't exist. Perhaps I'm too fussy, but I don't have any faith in a navigation application with such a massive error for years on end.

I think "massive error" is a bit hyperbolic. The "Beech Hill" issue is a little distracting and annoying, but it has no effect on routing or any other important Waze function. I do want to see it fixed, though...

I see that the Beech Hill "city" in Chester is named "Beech Hill (Chester)" Edit Except Hwy 103

It seems like it'd be worth while to do the same to Lake Charlotte in an attempt to pinpoint the source? The "city" in the Lake Charlotte area is 3 segments, but needs L4 Permalink

Honestly, I'll be done editing when Waze knows the fastest way between all my destinations

I haven't noticed any Beech Hill problems lately. I guess the problem is now resolved?
