Hear hear. We have been unable to close Update Requests for 9 days, route highlighting in some areas has been broken for months (even after being fixed for a day or two), etc..

I understand that resources are limited; that there is a pipeline between new feature planning and release; and that putting more people on a problem doesn't necessarily get it fixed faster. But every place I have worked, fixing regression failures takes top priority, and I can't help but get the sense that this has not been the case here. :|

I'll agree too, I wouldn't even say this is an improvement! Seems a bizarre addition when there are already perfectly good (or even better) ways to do it!

Focus on what we've asked for, quit doing things nobody has ever mentioned, quit asking facebook users for ideas then ignore your own suggestion site, quit driving for more users to pile the pressure on an increasingly crippled foundation!

Announcement: routing through landmarks

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Tue Mar 22, 2011 4:01 pm

Ok, this is fine and all, but I have to voice my frustration. I don't recall seeing this feature being requested on uservoice, nor mentioned anywhere in terms of existing issues or upcoming features list on the wiki. (http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Navigation_problems, http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Temp ... t_problems, http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Temp ... priorities). :x

There are serious bugs in Cartouche right now and Waze is taking resource time to implement an unrequested, and might I suggest unnecessary feature? Simply using Parking Lot road for these locations, which is likely the proper road type anyway, inflicts a pretty high penalty, which makes routing through these locations extremely unlikely.
