Those are curious issues and not necessarily easy to figure out. It could be that the map in the area 1) has some disconnected segments and then routes you properly when past them, and 2) could be offset. There are sometimes large neighborhood areas which are shifted from their proper location. They initially look OK on the client, but looking in the map editor can reveal GPS tracks not following the roads and/or the roads not aligned with aerials. (Always use both GPS and aerials as aerials can also be improperly shifted.)

@robo

Waze now gets its addresses from Google or Bing. There is a way to interact with them and update your address (hopefully someone will post more specifics here). I am not sure how long that process will take.

You can also delete your entry for "Home" and then do a long press on the screen at the spot on the map that you want to use. It should then get a little arrow that you can tap on and then save it.

Yes we do get the address from google or bing but the problem is when Waze tries to find the best route from the TO to FROM location it actyually always times out and never gives the actual route that needs to be followed.
