I'm a rather new user, and I'm trying to understand the difference between the first two search engines in the Waze app.
As an example, when I search to find my nearest "The Home Depot" store, using the term "Home Depot", I see that the first (smiley) Waze icon appears to be selected while it is searching, then it promptly reverts to the second Waze icon (a blue pin with a white dot).
The results under the blue pin with a white dot are appropriate (ordered from closest to furtherest), but when I select the 1st Waze (smiley face) icon, the results are not helpful, in that the first is not the nearest, and for that matter my local "The Home Depot" store is not even found in the listing.
I've attached two screen shots from my iPhone to show what I'm talking about.
Again, I'm just looking to understand the difference between the two icons, and why that first one is even available.
P.S. The following "How To" page...https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/How_to_Navig ... ch_engines
...does not give me an understanding (probably because it is based on v3.5, and the app is v3.9.2).
