Okay, this turns out that the user had a valid issue with Waze. Their search for Honolulu International Airport returned Google's result and directed user through Hickam AirForce Base, a secured military base, to the back of the airport close to where the Google pin is located at the center of the airport. They were sitting on the plane ready for pushback and one of the last things they did before turning phone off, they took the time to report it. The one chance for Waze to be a useful tool for this driver and it FAILED. I had to apologize. :oops:


Once again, Google's insistence on using the airport center point as the stop point for driving navigation proves to be harmful. :evil:

I think I found a gas jockey who is learning how to use the 'report map error' function...

OTOH, it will make for quick travel between ball parks next year when I come back down for Spring Training.

I wonder how they got 7-digit house numbers to work. I have an entire province (state) that uses 6-digit numbers and they don't go in...

I think I had that guy driving through my area a few months ago - reported about two dozen of them even after I said Waze doesn't track traffic signals.

Well, I don't know if it was the same reporter, of course, but I had a huge cluster of 'missing traffic signal' reports in the space of about 2 weeks...

Apparently this driver is upset about Fenton (2) bullsh.. but I'm not sure if it's a navigation or political statement.

That one actually seems like a problem, regardless of how poorly it was reported. Refer to the wiki for duplicate cities.



Thanks for the info. I'll look into this. There is another one nearby as well. Byron (2) is the town and I know there is a Byron Township elsewhere in MI that is tagged as Byron.

And another one today:

Problem:

incorrect judgement

I assume they were reporting the GPS coordinates not placing them on the correct road... but it still looks funny ;)
