Can you allow a "closure" duration of "everyday from time X to X" and "every Weekend from time X to X"?

On iPad iOS 5.1.1, Road closure do not work.

I only have the windows with later Button and continue Button is grey. With light blue background in full screen. Will try again tomorrow.

And 'More' Button have no icon when search for a destination.

My thoughts (pretty much) exactly! It's too late this year to have a solid closure feature ready in time for Mardi Gras, but for next year, I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

As you know, config so many details of "closure" while one is driving would be quite difficult. Are you thinking in have "closure" report configuration made mostly "later"?

I recall someone in the 3.5.99.2 thread mentioning the "My lane / Other lane" button as misleading. Perhaps a better way to say it, at least in US English, would be "My way / Other way".

"Way" in this case means essentially the same thing as "Direction", and it fits on the button.

Being limited to roads connected/in front of me, is ... quite limiting.

This, I think, would make more sense as a function for the web map editor.

The interface for closures is ... interesting. I'm not sure how to make it better yet. The problem is that it is complicated to report a road closure, especially if it is to include all the optional details.

For the on-display icon, I see that the construction bubble is attached to a junction. I think it would make more sense for it to attach to the mid-point of the segment which I have closed.

Also, we should be able to, as with all other types of hazards, specify that it is closed both directions.

Lastly, if I know, based on notification from the highway department or other entity, that a closure is in effect, it would be very helpful to be able to pan to that location and close a road not connected to one I am currently on. Being limited to roads connected/in front of me, is ... quite limiting.

EDIT: on the last point, I do understand that this is the first iteration of this released in beta. Hopefully, there will be an ability to do this in the future. Maybe via the web, too... (EDIT2: sketch just posted similarly).

Had that lovely no network while having network thing today (logs about to be sent)

Also quick suggestion for closed roads... Give priority to roads ahead (maybe even just roads ahead in direction of travel) had a play today and when I tried the road closed that was ahead I had to scroll the map forward. Not sure to many people will be closing a road behind them...

In my opinion, closure reports should not give any point to not stimulate its use without a real need.
