All feature requests are posted on the uservoice. This one has been over there for quite a while and was just updated to "under review" today. http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223- ... ing-option

Maybe easier just to remove the arrows vs. trying to figure out what side to put them on for each country.

Although isn't any navigation, including roundabouts based on the road directionality and direction of the turn?

Actually it would be pretty handy to report "both lanes" too

UK Driving and "My Lane"

Postby mrgrumpy » Fri Feb 24, 2012 11:11 pm

Tried to search for this to see if its been discussed elsewhere, but....

I know in the UK we like to be different, but when I report Traffic Jams etc and get the option of My Lane or Other Lane the arrows are on the wrong side.

Not a major issue I know, but it would be nice if it was right. :geek:

I won't hold my breath on this one though. :ugeek:

Could do.
But often a visual clue is handy when you're trying to watch the road as well.

Us Brits just like to be awkward! :mrgreen:

That's the "Both lanes" request, isn't it?
Good idea, and glad to see it under review, but my original post concerned "My Lane" being on the wrong side for those of us who drive on the proper side of the road. ;)

The Waze app already knows when it's in a left-hand drive country, as it displays the correct navigation for roundabouts (I think). Fixing the lane icons should be trivial...

I mean the navigation icons. They were wrong in v2.0
