The Google Maps application tells you your destination is on the left or right side of the road.

If there are PLR mapped it might tell you to turn off a street, but otherwise....

Destination on which side of road

Postby CorChap » Wed Aug 17, 2016 4:35 am

It would be nice if Waze would tell you which side of the road your destination is on and update the marker icon accordingly. In busy areas it's hard to find places when you have to search both sides of the road for the destination.

Re: Show destination address (and side of street)

I too have always wondered why this feature wasn't standard. Is the place I'm looking for on the left side? Right side? Arggh.

Destination side (left/right)

Postby manomintis » Tue Jun 07, 2016 1:55 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to make Waze mention which side of the road destination is, or should I create a new feature request? :) Example: "You're arriving to destination, on the right". At least Garmin does this, very helpful. Building numbers are not always visible, especially they are difficult to read when you're concentrated on driving. Some objects are not even possible to recognize by number. Thanks.

I use an iphone 5 and it doesn't do this for me either.

Destination info at arrival

Postby metafarion » Wed Jul 09, 2014 7:33 pm

Waze needs to provide some destination information when you arrive. An address at the very least, but a photo or a map indicating your position and the destination be really helpful. Currently, when you arrive, navigation ends and the route simply disappears and you're left with no guidance at all. This is extremely unhelpful if you're going to a place you've never been before and you don't know what it looks like and haven't committed the address to memory. Sometimes Waze makes a mistake and this happens when you're simply NEAR your destination and you're suddenly you're scrambling to figure out where to go. How about letting me end navigation when I'm done with it?

It does not do this. And it hasn't on my previous two phones either. I've been checking in every 6 months or so since 2011 with the current version of Waze on whatever phone I have at the time to see if the problem has been addressed, but so far the behavior has been very consistent. I arrive in the vicinity of my destination and all navigation stops. I have a map, but no marker, no address, no route, nothing.
