Searching for intersections

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Fri Aug 12, 2011 2:55 am

I did two tests just now and it worked both times. Since I live near Portland, OR, I entered the following: "salmon and 5th, Portland, or" and it gave me a single result which was the correct location.

Searching for intersections

Postby ircphoenix » Fri Aug 12, 2011 2:16 am

I really hope the Waze staff has something in the works to find an intersection. Sometimes you don't know the address, and the POI isn't in the Waze search, but you know the intersection... but on that same note, it would be handy to just be able to look for the first name of the street in case I don't remember if it's St, Ave, Hwy, Blvd, etc.

And I started and stopped this post 5 times, so if it doesn't make sense, that's my excuse.

Hey look! I'm an idiot. I'm so used to using an ampersand when it comes to intersections (Google Maps) that I tried it in Waze and when it didn't work, didn't even think of using "and." *facepalm*

Looks like you joined less than a month ago, so you still have a few days left before you get kicked out for not being perfect.
