One Address, Two Postal Codes

Postby J-Bird222 » Sat May 31, 2014 8:37 pm

I have done some searching through the forums but haven't really found an answer to this problem. Is there a way to fix an address that Waze thinks is in different locations because there are two results with different postal codes, but only one is correct? An example is 4337 Staulo Cr. in North Vancouver, BC. The incorrect address result that places the address a few blocks away from where it really is, is with postal code V6N 3S1 while the correct one is V6N 3S3.

Yup... Fix it in Google Mapmaker. :) that's actually how we have to solve most address location issues.

Just so you know J-Bird, I shortened the Crescent to Cres just now, in case you were wondering what edits I made to the road :)

I'm wondering if its because Waze gets its address results from Google Maps? Because when I search my address, it comes up three times just like it does in Google. And I've been on their case trying to figure it out since I came across it. I even tried deleting the duplicates myself in Map Maker with no luck.
