I guess that highlights another problem with lack of city names, the increased probability that there are two roads named "Green Glade Rd, MD."

And definitely not Swanton, MD (that's the better part of 200 miles to the west)!

Post office is Phoenix, MD.

I've been avoiding the use of Alternate City Name since the Validator seems to frown on it. I've always been for the zip-code city name for rural areas.

Well that's been the question for quite awhile. Should enter the ZIP city as an alternate name. I guess this would be a good one to test.

Should we add Green Glade Rd, Swanton, MD as an alternate name and see what happens?

Maybe we do need to reconsider using Zip Code cities in rural areas.


What if the city name is in the alternate field?

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.

It isn't a good situation. This request should be able to help with that if they choose to implement: https://bugs.waze.com/show_bug.cgi?id=7112

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 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.
