If one must transverse the incorrect route to get Waze to figure out the correct route, even after completely rebuilding the roads in question and clearing any map problems, then that is a bug, not a feature. Expanding the hypothesis that the incorrect route must be transversed, then every road in the database would have to be transversed before Waze could figure out correct routing.

For the sake of argument, let's agree that is true. If true, it is unacceptable. I am going to prove or disprove the hypothesis as I have one maddening route where Waze insists upon sending me the wrong way despite my attempts to fix the route in Cartouche. I should know within a week, depending on the speed of the Waze servers.

I drive the same route everyday and Waze continues to try and get me to take a side street when the 4-lane divided highway I am on will get me home much faster. As an A.M., I have completely rebuilt the section of road in question, resolved all map problems, and still Waze insists upon the side street.

If there truly is route auto-learning in Waze, it is broke.

This is a really old thread. I've added the "learning answer" to the FAQ: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ# ... _routes.3F

Also if you have to deal with an old basemap and inexisting roads, get the Area Manager (or become one) and detele the wrong roads. The point is not to complain, but to contribute to a better map.
