Like to see this one changed as well +1

Loving the beta!

Some things I noticed when using the beta:
• Display of icons is too big for my phone's resolution (320×480). I figured this is normal since beta versions in the past didn't optimize the screen resolution until right before the version became public.
• The numbering for "Comments and Likes" section that's shown for traffic events is hard to see. You have light blue and white blending into each other making the numbers hard to see. This is probably already going to be fixed in a future beta version.
• The confirmation screen of a successful Foursquare checkin should be a timed message. (10 seconds should be enough) The "X" that's present on the beta is a smaller button than the current "Close" button.
• The reporting of slow traffic seems to be more sensitive. I'm getting reports of slow traffic in side streets where I know no Wazers have been present at. I figured this is normal for the beta.

@elixdreamer gas prices function was just turned on today in NL and BE, so yeah, that's new. However, to report prices, you have to be very close. If not, it returns the no gas stations found error you got. Considering translation to Dutch: there is a dedicated thread for that in the Dutch forum where you can contribute. It's done by the community, not by Waze HQ.

I found out this "error". It is very important to me as it regards driving direction.
You should check the algorithm that decides when to give direction or not.
See this screenshot:

Here's in the editor:
https://world.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&l ... ,149919209
The roads are locked and last edited on september, so they were on the client as you see now in the editor.
There obviously is a right turn but Waze decides not to care about it and warns me of the next left turn ignoring the first one.
The first right turn is from a named street (Viale Europa) to a named Primary Street (Via Valcesano SP424), so it's clear that's not the natural continuation of the street.
This is very tricky if you don't look at your device but only listen to directions.

Should I mark these intersections as T ones?

The junctions look far too complex and should be simplified.

There are, at least, thousands of them in Italy mapped in this way. I though it was considered the "best practice".

There appears to be a dedicated right turn lane on the first intersection that would not cause a turn right prompt. There should still be a stay right or keep right prompt though. Your location in the image is after that prompt would occur so I don't know if there was one. When there's a dedicated one-way turn lane there is not a prompt to turn at the end of the lane unless the intersection geometry has the turn lane meeting the main road at nearly a 90deg and the main road is two-way. I believe any one-way road merging with another one-way road will not generate a navigation prompt

If I saw that situation in my editing area I would most likely eliminate the dedicated turn lanes and have it be two T intersections.

I think it's already mentioned and known, but the total trip distance needs to be nailed down.. Last night I was on an 11 mile leg, followed by about 5 miles of a few segments, and Waze told me I was 2.5 miles from home. I have no idea where the 2.5 even came from.
