Thanks. Just what I thought, the GPS couldn't be that accurate to detect different "lanes"

EDIT, now that unwallflower has already answered...

This is supposed to work even for a split roadway. However, there are bugs with this and it doesn't always work. Waze is also working on the option for both "lanes." The buttons used to say something different, but it was confusing. It still isn't all that good. I proposed "My dir" and "Opp dir" but any shortening of words also needs to work for other languages.

Really ? My bad. I actually searched everywhere for half an hour before I post this. I kinda guessed it but I just want to confirm it before I get reported for posting fake traffic reports hehe. Your idea of "My dir" and "Opp dir" is better IMHO. Anyway if this is a repeat I guess I should close this. Sorry again.
