Side-note: This Wayfinder seems like it should be set as a Right FWY Split, and the stubs should be Ramp type.

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.

I've been trying to get a couple wayfinders in my region to work for about a week or two and was about to post a request for help. Do you think this is a related - and if so should the Wayfinder section of the wiki be edited to reflect the fact that this is again being reformulation?

These 3 platforms can have different behaviours.

jaywazin wrote:Well the caveat here is that for each of these I only made one of the exiting stubs 5m in length (so I didn't follow the instructions exactly), because in #1, the other was already a ramp, and in #2 the exiting ramp is locked level 5 (I'm L3). I've read that wayfinder wiki many times and it seems that the 5m was just to make sure it didn't look strange on the app or screw up the routing timings. . .
Anyway, here's #1. Going southbound on Alfort St Bridge, there is a fork to an "exit" ramp to Alford St (right), and a continuation onto Rutherford Ave (left). However from a driving perspective, it's pretty unclear which way to go (I don't know how many times I went the wrong way due to the lack of instruction) - if anything going straight would take you to the ramp (right), and going down Rutherford Ave requires that you veer left. So we need a prompt to "stay right" or "stay left" depending on the route. It currently gives a "exit or stay right" (I don't recall which one, I should probably pay more attention) but nothing if you go left down the Rutherford Ave underpass/tunnel.
jaywazin wrote:Here's #2. Driving west on Memorial drive - Again there is a fork. Going straight would be an exit to a ramp to Massachusetts avenue; staying left would keep you on memorial drive to bypass the intersection via a underpass. Again, there's only a prompt to "exit or stay right" if you're turning ont Mass Ave, but nothing to stay left. I've seen several UR's about this particular issue as well.

Regarding the question about the outer segments - not sure they were set up as ramp even before I started wazing. I'll be happy to change them to MH with a short ramp stub.
I'll look more at the other alt names for Memorial, but many of them are already locked to L5 or will be soon as orbitc's road locking standards for this region kicks in. As far as the wayfinder guidance naming - haha, I saw the box in the wiki with the explanation mark starting with "Previously in these situations segment naming was modified. . ." I missed the whole part of the bullet point just above that which said to just remove the name!

I was just looking at the naming of memorial drive. It's pretty convoluted, having alternative names of Mass Rt2, US Rt2, and Mass Rt3, and in different places. Will get to it later!

SH-22 WB to SH-223 wayfinder. The primary names are different but alt names match so no direction is given. Staying on 22 WB to its own wayfinder has no matching name so "keep right" is given.

I do not know if this would have given an instruction 2 weeks ago.
I do not get a "stay to the left" instruction here (and never have) from SB Colorado merging onto Huntington:
