I'd make sure to check the Google search results in Waze when entering that type of search.

Try searching for "<Street #1> at <Street #2>, <City/Town> <State>"...

Thanks for the idea...but no luck I'm afraid :cry:

Hopefully, a future release of the client app will include intersection searching. :o

Hmmm... usually works for me... try "and" instead of "at"...

Remember, in certain countries Waze outsources their search, try your search at the Google & Bing websites, the problem may be on their end.

I just searched "Dorchester Ave and Columbia Rd Boston, MA" in WME, the Live Map & Bing... They all show up at the correct intersection. Should work in the app... Make sure you are formatting it properly...

Also, Alan is talking about the search results tabs (Google, Bing, Waze, Contacts, FourSquare, Yelp, etc) at the bottom of the search screen, NOT the Google website...

How to Find Intersection? (when navigating)

Postby jasontaylor71 » Sun Jul 01, 2012 10:14 pm

Hi,
Often I don't know the street number, but I do know the nearest road intersection (2 roads).

How can I search for an intersection (enter 2 roads) when trying to navigate ? :?:

Thanks.

Jason.

Waze (and none of its search engines) would find the intersection when " & " was used but once I used " and " I could find it

Google finds intersection. Waze does not. Example Dorchester Ave and Columbia Rd in Boston. Goes to street number 2 blocks from intersection.
