My destination was 3840 Highland Parkway Smryna Ga 30082. Waze calculated my time and showed that I was only 2 miles away. it told me to turn right onto S. Cobb drive and as I was driving up to turn left, then it would change and tell me to turn right onto Paces Ferry Road. It was really crazy, I drove around for two hours trying to find my destination . Every time I tried to find my destination Waze would change directions and recalculate my route. I never made it to the job site and drove out all my gas. I would like to know if you could send me a gas card for the inconvenience ?

We'll be glad to send you the gas card. Just let us know how much it should be for and where to send it. In the mean time you might want to check that the gps function in your phone hasn't been turned off for some reason. It sounds like Waze might be getting it's location from cell phone towers.

We sent a Waze driver to deliver your gas card but Waze ran him around and got him so lost he had to use the card to buy gas to get back home. Sorry.

Description: ziar nad hronom
Reported in Central London, UK


WTF? Google reckons it's a town in Slovakia. Google Translate reckons the language is Polish, but "grains over Hronom" doesn't help me much either.

Accompanied by about 100m of highlighted Waze route in a straight line about 400m from the report.

I don't feel at all guilty about putting "not identified" on this one.

Perhaps they used the rip to bypass that major junction? I'll get that reported to the local council right away!

Problem: earls court exhibition center. LOCATED HERE!!!


Reported at the end of a cul-de-sac round the back of Earls Court clearly marked "No access to exhibition halls" - although admittedly accompanied by a Waze-provided route that took them straight past the public entrance!

Response: problem located. BETWEEN SEAT AND DASHBOARD!!!

User report: "Missing bridge overpass"

Reported from the deck of the Woolwich Car Ferry in the middle of the River Thames. I'm afraid I just couldn't resist replying:
iainhouse wrote:Hi there! Volunteer map editor iainhouse responding to your report.

You reported a "missing bridge overpass" on the Woolwich Ferry in the middle of the river. Whilst I know a bridge here would be far quicker, I'm afraid our ability to influence Government transport policy is limited!

Did you perhaps mean to report some other problem?

If you can supply any more information, I would like to help. You can reply to this message in the app . . . etc etc


[EDIT] Never did get a reply from that one. :(

Hi, what was the problem here on Victoria Park?
Reporter on July 11, 2014
I think it was a robbery
a.n.editor(4) on July 11, 2014
Ok, what has that got to do with a map issue on Waze exactly?
iainhouse(6) on August 20, 2014
I'm closing this report now, as the criminals have probably left the area.

What's your quickest response to a UR "request for more information"? Whatever it is, I can beat it: I got a response from the reporter before I finished typing the request! :shock:

I found an old UR (~100 days old) in an area with no AMs. I was just starting to type my request for more info when a L1 Live User appeared at the location and said "Hi" to me in Map Chat.

I finished typing my request first, hit send, then said "Hi" back and asked him if he had any idea what the problem was (joking a bit, since I couldn't work it out). It transpired that he was the original reporter of the UR: he had just decided to look into "this map editing thingy" and had "followed" me to the location of his own report. :lol:

After I assured him he didn't have to reply to the email he'd just received, we resolved the issue in chat and I was able to close the UR.

I'm not sure if this counts as a Jolly Driver or a Jolly Editor?

General error
Reported on: January 18, 2015

Reporter February 19, 2015 wrote:Hi,

You recently reported a General Error while on the A4050. Unfortunately Waze hasn't information to identify the problem.

Any additional information you could offer would be appreciated.

Thanks

iainhouse(6) April 05, 2015 wrote:I don't know who asked for more information on Feb 19th because the UR says "Reporter". That means you're also the person who reported the problem in the first place!

Are you going to answer yourself, or can I close this report now?

Postscript: It was both! :lol:

Go ahead and close it please.

And yes - I too have fallen into this trap before. :)
