Even tho I know Waze don't learn routes there is a video on YouTube from Waze showing that it does learn your preferred route. Do a search on YouTube for waze tip #3. I think waze needs to take this off of YouTube.

They should make it so it is absolute. People put turn restrictions in place for a reason because it is not possible to turn there.

Learning my routes

Postby reflon » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:54 pm

I'll give a prime example. I'm in the military and there is a road that civilians can drive on that goes right thru the base without having to go thru a checkpoint. That road is Bragg Blvd. There is only one road that crosses this road so traffic can get from one side of post to the other. That road is Honeycutt Rd. If your on Bragg Blvd you cannot turn left or right onto Honeycutt Rd. but if your on Honeycutt Rd. you can go straight or turn right or left onto Bragg Blvd. If you try to turn onto Honeycutt from Bragg then you get met by the MP's and told to turn around. Everything has been good up till this last map update then it started telling me to turn right onto Honeycutt from Bragg all because turn restrictions aren't an absolute and only gives a penalty. The same goes for if you have a road where there is a median but does not meet the requirements to be a split road. You cannot cross that median but sometimes it will tell you to. So as you can see these examples are the reason I say turn restrictions need to be an absolute.

After about 15 tries, Waze "learned" that I can use the back gate (and routinely directs me that way) of my apartment complex. Although my apartment complex has now closed and lock the gate, Waze does route me that way. It choses a private road and street as opposed to the primary street at the front of my complex. So....I don't know.

If the gate is closed 24/7 you can just remove that part of the road from the map...


I've already fixed it. I turned off the turn restrictions.

Yeah that's probably map errors in the 1 direction, Essex is really bad for map errors.

That'll be why your routes are dodgy ;-)
If you can PM me a permalink I'll have a look at it.

This is a feature, but it's been broken for as long as I can remember.

That will only increase the penalty, it won't stop it.

What happens if they're wrong, or name a road and don't check the turn restrictions?
