Wrong initial driving direction

Postby SocalToe » Sat Jan 12, 2013 12:35 am

Wrong initial driving direction....

I noted this when 3.5 first came out (compared to 3.2)


Waze still starts me out in the wrong initial direction.


If I'm on the south side of an east-west street, setting the initial driving direction as east would be correct 90-95% of the time (this what 3.2 did)

(east side of north-south street sends you south, etc.......)

3.5 starts me out going west 95% of the time (and around the block)


On larger streets, starting west on the south side of an east-west street is often not even possible.........

What to do after paving a road is a dead end

Postby skbun » Tue Jan 08, 2013 12:38 am

If a user paves a road in the client, when they complete it, they'll see this:

Done?

Click 'Stop' and make sure to go to http://www.waze.com/livemap to name this new road and publish it.


The problem is, the livemap has nothing to do with naming and fixing up new roads. Should a user take this advice, they'll end up on the Livemap page, where we already know the visible layer is months out of date, and it's not obvious what a user is supposed to do, unless they're lucky enough to click 'update map'.

Can you please change this error/notification to point instead to http://www.waze.com/editor?

(I have heard rumors that 'pave road' is no longer the ideal way to add roads, but whether true or not, this is STILL pointing people in the wrong direction, and will only lead to frustration if anyone attempts to take this advice. Some of the editors/champs on here have complained that users just don't pave roads after they make them, and given this erroneous message, I wouldn't expect them to try.)

Also. Might be offtopic but it would be good to have a report feauter for harassments on the chat feature from the client. I bet that kind off message scares that girl from using waze.

Translate and censored its translated to "sofia would you f**k with me ok, be my girlfriend and have s*x I have no girlfriend" if he would have used correct Swedish... Duh, what an asshole. :!:

This can be tweaked in the translation file.
Check the translation team of your country.

You still got users preferring English over local translation... So this workaround works only partially.

if it looks strange, it's my phone's fault

Since the shortcut to www or world also depends on your country, there is no other way than to take care of this in the translation file. UK English is also translated and different from US.

client application is aware of infrastructure client connects to, so I should not be extremely difficult to fix issue like this... but definitely not highest priority for devs.

Is this a known feature or just a bug?

Have you compared them? There's probably a change!


No, but nobody else saw this? Just me?

No I got it too. And as with pretty much every other eula I've seen over the last 20 years I pretty much ignored it.
