This is my standard response for this type of report
Waze does not maintain a POI database, you have to correct this issue with the third-party search provider that gave you your results (the tabs at the bottom of the in app results screen). Waze only gets GPS coordinates and navigates to the closest segment to those coordinates. For more, see item #27 of the Waze FAQ located at http://bit.ly/WazeFAQ

User reported name change

This is strictly a house number question, but this seemed like the most closely related topic.

The user reported General error in the above link notes that "this company is now Pentair Valves and Controls, no longer Tyco"

I believe that, since Tyco is not placed as a landmark, the business location data is sourced from Google maps (and other 3rd parties) and, thus, can not be changed directly in Waze. If that is so, what is the recommended procedure? Should I report the change via Google maps (it is still listed as Tyco there) and close the report?

Thanks,
dj

Thanks. I'll pretty much copy and use that verbatim :D
