Navigation Guidance Error

Postby flgardenguy » Fri Mar 29, 2013 12:22 am

A user-reported error popped up in Ft. Myers, FL, USA. Apparently, the road name "Veronica S. Shoemaker Blvd" is being read as "Veronica South Shoemaker Boulevard" in the audible navigation guidance. This is the proper name for the road and I would really hate to change it. Is there any way to perfect this in the programming end of things? Maybe someone has other recommendations. ... es=8172264

Does the road name in the Waze editor actually have a period after the S? If that doesn't fix it, the only thing I know of that will is to put the S in single quotes.
