Re: [NEW] Best Continuation algorithm has been changed

I do agree that best continuation algorithm has changed, but I do not think it was purposeful, rather an unintended consequence of fixing a feature of detour prevention. I have not seen any confirmation from Waze HQ that this was intended. Therefore, I believe the posted guidance here may be premature.

If someone has confirmation from Waze that this is now working as designed and segment name in Alt only (not city also) is used for best continuation calculations, then I rescind my concerns.

Based on the last post I read from Waze a few moments ago, it appears they plan to go forward and not back out this change.

Why anyone of Waze Staff didn't asked anything to us , before to make such a type of important changes on the alghoritm ?

Many many users have been faced with strange routing behavior , where we could hardly give an answer and creating a lot of URs as well.

Marc is correct !
Are we sure modifications and algorithms are the same for all platforms ?

I am interested in what the new 'decision chart' will look like, so i can modify mine. :)

It sure would be nice if WAZE would share this stuff with us so we don't have to reverse engineer it ourselves. :!:

Is this a victim of the change?

Problem: there is a split here. need keep right / keep left instruction

I have no idea if it was working before, but hope/assume it was as last change were in late July.

s-in US-59 HOV, Houston, Texas; mH
s-out 1 US-59 HOV, Houston, Texas; mH 164 deg
s-out 2 <no name> ; ramp 187 deg
no alt names involved.

Suggestions for fixing?

hmm... this 1 doesn't work anymore

@shaq23 @pesachz

guys, thanks for your time yesterday. however, a recent finding by a fellow editor L5 @Krixera has ruled out the elevation theory...
