Support couldn't get it right either. Imho it is clear that the server cannot always properly tell what is straight and what not. So better not use that then.
1. You have beautiful roads. And a beautiful map.
2. I notice there are little kinks in the connections of the roads to the roundabout. Not that that is the cause, but I'm curious about why they are there. Can I learn something?
3. Not that you needed confirming, but yes I confirm the same problem.
4. No wonder you are annoyed. It is totally unacceptable to get wrong verbal instructions.
5. I'd guess that it is the angle of arrival and departure. A long thin roundabout - but that design must be standard. Are there other roundabouts in this shape that work correctly? That you can point me at?
6. BUT I don't get straight through instructions here: http://world.waze.com/cartouche/?zoom=7 ... =101183984
Rather it's take the 2nd exit going from SW to NE or NE to SW
7. But man other places work fine, such as here:

8. I do think continue straight and turn left and turn right at roundabout are better for people to understand, especially in places where nearly all the roundabouts are simple. But it has to work for all cases!
9. One way would not be to make it a roundabout at all. Just roads that are in an oval shape. But would drivers consider it to be a roundabout, and expect at the nth exit?
10. On review I think it is the angle of the relative locations of the entrances and the exits - it's probably too complex to look at the angle of the departing road segment, which will change.
11. My suggestion would be if the distance is more than 40m to switch to nth exit prompts. That should be easy to implement.
12. What is the current status of your discussions with Waze HQ support?
