Route smoothing

We had a mention a while back about the client not always showing the route highlight right on the road. I snapped this near that time because it was just so ... not even close. :)

Route smoothing

That's just the way the client drew the route segments sent by the server (the server sends a series of gps coords for the route segments). When I zoomed in, it did get closer the the actual segments, and eventually was right on about two zooms in from max.

More extreme examples in the Dutch forum:

Personally I have never seen such a deviation.

Very unusual. Hard to say what could be causing it, since there aren't any GPS tracks to show anything bizarre happening. I recall going through that particular interchange the last time I was in Oregon, and it's not like you're surrounded by mountains or tall buildings, or really anything else that would cause Waze to get strange signals from that location.
