I got a notice that more information is required about what I'm seeing on highway 75. I'm not sure what else to say about it.

Would some screenshots be helpful?

If you guys see anything else that you feel shouldn't be locked let me know. At this point, I only want anything with a freeway designation locked, Chief Peguis Trail, Main St, Route 90/Bishop, Lagimodiere and a few complicated/bizarre intersections locked.

umbrau44, I'm not seeing anything. I have a hunch that it might just be a erroneous geometry node or a junction that needs to be taken apart and reassembled. Next time you travel down Hwy 75, could you make a UR each time the problem appears? Thanks.

I will do that next time.

There's something wrong with highway 75. It looks like there are gaps in the road so it gets confused and thinks I need to change my route.

I never saw it on my BlackBerry but I see them on my galaxy s3.

I've actually seen a few other Wazers over the past two weeks, which is a change! It's good to see.

However, I am very annoyed that BlackBerry development has stopped. I've used Waze quite a bit for well over a year and there have been few changes. Now there is no hope of any improvements which quite disappointing.

I live in Transcona but I work outside of Winnipeg, in Rosenort. On my way home, I usually take the perimeter to Lagimodiere, then go east on Fermor to Plessis and go north. For some reason, it is very insistent about having me turn on to Plessis at the perimeter (a terrible intersection and gravel until Fermor), even to the point of wanting me to make a u-turn at Bishop Grandin and Lagimodiere.

I have also noticed that at will ask me to change lanes to the opposite direction on highway 75 for no apparent reason. And the final bit of strangeness is around the clover leaf at Pembina highway and the perimeter. It has shown directions for going the wrong way on the ramps.

I did manage to find the groups in the dashboard, I didn't know it was there before.

The groups feature is not available on the Blackberry yet, either.

I found the latest beta somewhere on the forums (1.9.8.7) and it still needs some work for my 8530. Most bb users would not find it worth the aggravation to use it at all, especially when it gives weird routing suggestions.

Thanks for alerting me to this thread, James. :)

It is generally NOT proper to connect any "non-drive-able" segment types to the regular traffic grid. However, this appears to be more akin to the characteristics of an HOV lane, so it would best fall under the Waze Wiki's guidelines for HOV lanes: "these lanes should be added to the map as separate roads, with the road type as Parking Lot Roads." They should also be connected to the traffic grid at the appropriate junctions (with turn restrictions set to "allowed"); since the type is PLR, they will be ignored by the routing server. The connections will prevent the creation of automatic map problems, while still making allowance for those who are unaware (or who don't care :roll: ) that they shouldn't run Waze while on public transit.

The only edits that may need approval are ones to places... Any street edits that the editor let you make we're instantly approved!


That's good to hear. So who approves additions/changes to places? I added and edited some places. And I also noticed the new CMHR has a typo in the name, "Museam".

Hello, I'm new to Waze and just tried some easy edits to the Winnipeg area map. Is there anyone still approving edits?

Hey sorry it didn't alert me to this message! Wish I had seen it way sooner!

Hopefully gas station support comes soon to Canada and they bring back road goodies! I'll try adding stations to the map as I go!

Waze on!
