See this thread.

Routing servers have been giving bad routes for a couple of weeks now (especially for stops). I get a bad route every morning for my commute at the moment.

So there is probably nothing wrong with the map.

Thanks for the feedback guys. For now I'm just going to stop using the "Add a stop" feature; I'll just choose the stop as my destination then start a new route from there to my final destination. A minor inconvenience.

It would be interesting to know why I'm getting the strange routing though.

Checked for what? Waze routes fine from A to B along the shorter route.

Hmm. I see you point. You would think the routes would be the same if given to a stop point or to the ultimate destination. I'm trying to get a similar result on destinations around me, but so far all the routes I've tried have given the same routes regardless of whether the location is the destination or an added stop. I don't know why waze is giving you the longer route when you add your son's work location to the route.

Here are permalinks for the variously coloured routes on the map above.

Interesting. Would you mind providing a permalink.
