I agree too!
I hope the shields are coming soon in Switzerland too...

Therefore I switched to zoom by distance.
The fixed speed zooms are useless for smartphone displays.

At my phone the bubbles disappear at 105 km/h in portrait.

Hi guys.

We've considered it and keeping these different options in mind.

You can expect more work on improving the map from version to version...

Is it possible to get the road shields for other countries for testing in the Beta versions?

It would be great if somewhere like New Zealand could have them since there is really only one type from SH1 thru to SH99 all looking like this:

Wikipedia has an article here (and SVGs):

You could go further and have motorway exit signs, but that would only cover 2% of the roads.



Also not having these currently, what happens with the TTS when there is a road shield and a normal name? The official naming is SHxx but the TTS reads this as Shhh xx (eg. the noise you make to make someone be quite) so a Waze map editor has renamed them to State Hwy xx, which looks complex when you have a road named 'Fitzherbert East Road (State Hwy 57)'

In the US at least, we do not use multiple names in the primary name field as that is what the alternate names fields are for. Waze should, eventually, be able to assign shield information separately from the primary name field, so we're kinda set up that way already. What gets put in the primary field is how most people or signage would refer to that roadway. Just because a sign has both names doesn't mean Waze must have them both pronounced as well.

We have shield setted by test in some highways.

We wait and see the new panel in future WME to see how to add them to the warious segments.

Basically shields was generated by a string and, as Alan said, the street name must be Symple and not a long complex name
