Well, that's good. (I'm glad someone's checking it out for me. :)) Now to decide whether to kludge other similar exit combinations the same way or get Waze to fix the keep/exit logic.

Thanks for everyone's input.

Seems that your change was sucessful to get the keep right instruction.

Gah! We shouldn't have to rig intersections like this to get good prompting. I have done the small change to try to get prompts for both directions.

If I route through there on my client, I get the "Keep left to Exit 299B I-405 / Hwy 26 E / City Center" instruction, so it seems the changes have propogated to the client. However, I get no instruction to keep right if continuing on I-405 at Exit 1A.

There aren't two I-405 segments. I-405 starts at Exit 299 on I-5 northbound. The next split is I-405 Exit 1A, where the exit is a straight continuation and I-405 turns to the right on a ramp. I am very curious to see what the screen/voice prompts do here.


Yeah, I wasn't very clear. I the two segments I was referring to are the one that branches off from I-5 (Exit 299) and the right leg at the next fork (i.e. the one that isn't Exit 1A). It looks like your current configuration meets this requirement. I'm also very curious to hear what the prompts are. Please be sure to report back when you get a chance to test them.

Thanks for everyone's input. I have made some changes based on it. I will wait a few days now and do a test route through the segments to see if the prompts I get are what they should be.

I'm curious what should be tried to force a "keep right" prompt here.
