Tile Update Schedule for New/Modified Addresses?

Postby kodi75 » Sat May 31, 2014 2:22 am

What is the update schedule for new / modified address locations? I had made this change at 4311 Green Glade Road near Phoenix, Maryland almost 3 weeks ago.
Problem: This is 4311 Green Glade Road
Reported on: May 09
I had previoulsy read that some road re-alignment has to occur before the particular tile is updated, so I tweaked it as much as I could.
Same error here.
Problem: this is 10036 Hillgreen Circle not the road below
Reported on: May 21
(original report from the beginning of the month - this was an update UR).
Also noted this thread from earlier this year indicating that it's at the same time as the general tile updates.

In addition I did submit an update request @ Google, realizing that may take months.

Have you deleted previous searches and/or saved favorites for this location? Old searches will continue to give the old bad location.

Can also try going to settings>advanced>data transfer>update maps.

@Bigbear - I am an editor modifying address locations in Waze's database. Live Map still routes to the wrong locations.

When I made my original "fixes" I indicated to the orginal reporter that they may have to recreate their "favorites" and/or update the map tile in the app.

These are both working for me in the client and the live map. Did they update recently or are we seeing different results?

Live Map shows it in the wrong place. The app's first result gives the same location. If I cancel the result and force the app to provide addtional results, the 2nd Waze result is in the correct location.

Right. That second waze result shows that the edit has been processed. I can get the live map to give the same results. Type in "4311 Green Glade Rd, MD" and then hit more results at the bottom of the list. I then get the same thing as forcing the app to provide the search results.

For the second example, the result comes up in the autofill results for me. My guess on the difference is that the first doesn't have a city name. My guess is that without a city name, waze is not displacing the Google result with the house number layer result.

So is the answer to fill in the City name? You can't expect app users to not select the autofilled result.

Agreed, but at this point I think the answer is to find out how waze is planning to handle the autofill result long term. I'll see what I can do.

Even after tapping the auto-fill result, Waze is still supposed to look at the internal house number data, and if it finds a match, is supposed to use the Waze result. All Waze results for House Numbers will show the pin on the road, whereas most Google results will show slightly off the road.

Right, that is what seems to be happening for the second example, 10036 Hilgreen Circle. But as it stands waze never finds a "match" if the Waze result doesn't have a city name. Thus, as the Google results are used for the autofill, you will never be taken to to waze address pin result for a road segment without a city name by tapping on the autofill results. Even worse, if you do ask for search results, a Google result with an assumed city is listed above the waze result without the city name.
