What device are you using? Have tab are you getting these results from? When I search for "Home Depot" I get results for Home Depot, maybe one Lowes at the bottom of the list (there are 5 Home Depots and 3 Lowes close enough to be considered local to me)...

Argh! This pisses me off so much.

When I ask Waze to search for something, all I want is for it to show me What I Searched For. I don't want Waze to try to be smart and show me things that might be similar to what I searched for. That's not helpful!

If I search for Menards it's because I want to go to Menards. I don't want to scroll through 10 pages of results from Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, etc. If I wanted to go to one of those places I would have searched for it. I just want to find Menards.

If I want directions to iHop and I search for iHop, just show me the freaking iHops! Don't show me every other restaurant that might serve breakfast food because that's Not Helpful!

I looked for a setting to turn off "Helpful Searching" but didn't find it. Is there a way to just search for what I type and not all the other crap?!?

Well, that's the final straw. Back to Google Nav I go... :(

I'm using a S3. When I search for Menards, all I want to see is Menards. I don't want to see any Home Depot, lowes, Ace Hardware, Tru Value, or anything else. If I wanted to go to Lowes I'd have searched for Lowes.

If I searched for something generic like Hardware Store, then random results like that would be fine. But when I search for something and you find an exact match, then those are the only results I want to see.

Because of this, and the crappy UI in landscape mode, I've uninstalled Waze. If either of these things gets fixed, let me know since I like the idea of how it works, I just can't get over the basic issues.
