Yes. Have a read of the House Numbers wiki page for the full info on House Numbers and caveats. The Waze FAQ also addresses the question about Waze not routing to the correct location.

Since the earlier posts Waze is now building in the functionality to maintain house numbers in Waze Map Editor vs. doing the lookups with Bing. As discussed previously the issue is that the GPS coordinates for your house are located closer to Billingham Trl. than Brayton Park Dr. See picture:

Waze is currently NOT using this data for routing. So it will be resolved at some future time when Waze enables this functionality. Waze will route to GPS coordinates of where your house is connected to the road vs. the location of the house number sitting over the house itself.

FWIW, Bing Maps routing has nothing to do with how Waze routes. Waze is only using the house number lookup from Bing. Where the roads are placed on the Waze Map vs. the gps coordinates of the house number lookup are what is currently relevant.

I posted this a while ago but the problem still exists. I checked on Bing and the address is in the correct place and Bing routes correctly. Waze has the address in the right place but the route is wrong.

We all get 'clarified' around here. More info is better than less info. Now if we can get Waze to communicate more and clarify ;)

To be more direct -

We can't currently fix this issue via a map edit on Waze since the Waze Map data is not being used to resolve the location of the street address.

As AlanOfTheBerg has stated - you will need to figure out how to get the location of your street address corrected by contacting Bing. Good luck!

Address information is served up in the US by bing. Check your address location in bing to see if it is in the same wrong location as Waze shows it.

You can do two things: 1) figure out how to get bing to change your address pin location; 2) Use the Cartouche editor to add the address directly to the street location it should be located on and then wait for Waze to fix the algorithm which is supposed to give preference to addresses in Waze.

I am routing to my address saved in "Home". Your suggestion may work for me but it doesn't really fix the problem. It's more of a workaround. It works for me because I know where my house is. If someone else is trying to get to my house and doesn't know where it is, Waze won't get them there with my address.

Are you routing home via street address or street address that is saved as 'home'?

Quick fix is to delete and recreate the home favorite by click and hold on the map for the exact location you wish to be routed to.
