A reminder, if anyone has any categories that they would like added I am compiling a list to forward to Waze.

Please post here or PM me.

Ultimately they may reject them but we can only ask.

Pending because we don't know if we will get 'Customer Parking' or not, depending on if we have it or not will make a huge difference to the wiki/guidance.

My advice for now is still do do nothing until the wiki is finalised.

This is all pending while we wait for Waze to confirm that they will create a 'Customer Parking' Category.

But the new direction for 'Parking Lot' or Car Park' is that it should only be used for parking where you can park you car (with/without a fee) and safely leave the area to go about your business. Most Malls/supermarkets/Retail parks/offices only allow parking for while you are on the premises.

The reason for this is that a search for parking should only return a result for parking were you can leave the premises otherwise a Wazer might be directed to a parking area that is not suitable. If the Wazer was heading to 'Sainsbury's' then they would not be searching for parking but the store itself.

Given that Places search is currently not working properly it isn't an immediate issue but it will be in the future. Expect a fix 'soon' (or earlier).

I've been adding some more places this afternoon (all within 2 miles of my house) for testing and there are a number of potential missing or conflicting place categories:

Missing:
Community Centre
Newsagents

Conflicting:
Pet store and Veterinary Services (these are quite different and shouldn't be together)


Post any more you're not happy with here and we can discuss with Waze at the UK meet in 2 weeks.

.... However on testing both point and area places edited on 9th June Waze still cannot find them.

So if you can't see a point place on the live map or client map AND you cannot search for it, is it really there?

Feeding this back to Waze ....

Surely existing places converted from landmarks should show up in search?

But yes it would be nice if the map would update so that all the new point and area places I added for testing were on the map.

Are places showing up in search for anyone?

On the testing I have done some far I can find things using FourSquare and Google search engines but Waze seems lacking.

e.g. in Lincoln if I search for 'Sainsbury's' I get the following:

Waze

Google

Four square

(Note if waze doesn't find a sensible result it seems to stealthily run to google. Tap the bottom bar to see where the results come from.

Progress on this is being hampered by the fact the live map is now more than two weeks old (Last update 27th May according to status.waze.com) so none of the test places I added to the map near me have arrived yet :?
