Address search taking users to the wrong location.

Postby KC-Guardrail » Wed Jul 15, 2015 1:36 am

I ran across a weird UR the other day and need some help. A Waze user inputted the address 13108 W 77th Ter and the app gave him several choices in a drop down.

The customer told him it was Lenexa KS. He selected the Lenexa choice and it brought him here.

When you do a search in the editor, it shows you the same location, around the 15XXX block of 77th Ter.

The actual address location is a Shawnee KS postal address that is on the edge of the Lenexa KS City limits. (Below the red line is Lenexa and above is Shawnee)

When you do a search on the address in the editor, the zip codes for the Lenexa and Shawnee entry are the same, 66216, a Shawnee zip code.

So the question is, can we change the search drop down or is that just the way it is?

If you do a search on that address in Google maps and specify Lenexa KS, it take you to the same wrong place, the 15XXX block of 77th Ter.
