The police "not there" does not work the same as the other hazard notifications?

Am I wrong? I don't recall ever getting a message saying someone reported my report as "not there". Plenty saying they've been thanked, though. Maybe my reports are just that good 8-)

You've been around a lot longer than I, but I guess your reports are that good (or people are ignoring them :lol: )
I get "Not There" responses from time to time when I've reported vehicles on the side of the road.
These are not Map Chats or private messages... they are the same type of pop-up as a Thank You, with the opportunity to respond same as a "Thank you" note.
Knowing now that it takes up to 4 minutes to propagate to the live map, that is understandable, as sometimes people here in LA will (illegally) pull to the emergency lane to take a phone call, or pull over for a few minutes to secure a load, or some other short stop.
I'll try to be more aware if a situation looks like it's wrapping up before reporting.

Unfortunately, it's something that's hard to test/demonstrate, since you can't "Not there" something unless it pops up on its own as you approach... and it was funny today driving with my wife, the popups that we were getting were quite different.
I guess the only way to test it is to throw out a bunch of bogus reports in an area populated by many Wazers and hope someone responds. Next time I get one, I'll try to remember to grab a screen capture, but it's a bit of a pain on the Galaxy.

Another interesting thing, she runs her colors in editor style, I run in default because traffic speeds are easier to see against the blue. Area Places were rendering on her map, but not on mine. It could have been the zoom level, I left mine at the default for our speed and she was zooming and panning all over the map looking for incidents ahead.

It works sometimes, but depending on the app that is open, it doesn't always work.
Often emails swipe to the previous message, Waze will open the report screen (and like a Thank you, once the "Not there" is cleared it's gone).
But I've only had the phone for about 6 months and have not really worked with the screen shots.
Do I need to be in contact with the glass, or just above it?

Fixed it.
Downloaded a screen capture service that goes back to the old way... power button plus either down-volume, or on my S4, power button plus home button.

Next time I see a "Not There" I'll try to remember to capture it.

Kobes1878 wrote:Sweet! Whats the name of app?

The S4 and 3 should both have the feature of power+home to capture as standard. I didnt have to download for that. But, using the volume button is way easier...

My S4 lacked that functionality... manual swipe is the only way to go.
The app is called "Screenshot Easy" and it has to run as a service. It behaves like the camera and takes you to the browser to view the screenshots folder after saving the image, so you get an immediate confirmation of what was saved.

However, the power-down volume or power-home is variable depending on the phone. My S4 only runs power-home

And BTW: On the "Not here" messages, they do behave differently from the "Thanks" messages in that they have never appeared in my in-box. The only pop up on the screen (and get replaced by warnings) so it's possible to ignore them... if you drive with the screen off unless you are actively looking for something then you'll likely never see them.
But I have seen a few, and like the "Thanks" message, there is an option to reply that is not a map chat.
I usually reply "That's great" so the person reporting "Not there" knows that I'm not mad that he "thumbed down" my report. Hey, if the hazard is cleared, the Waze map should clear too!

It'd be odd if they didn't show up at all, but Area Place names usually don't show up when navigating in 3D mode unless you start panning the map.

Verified today that is what is happening (easier to see on the night screen).

Problem: 4th st in Arcadia has a large dip and turn slightly to the left
Dropped about 26 miles to the west of Arcadia, in Santa Monica.
Also, Arcadia has a 4th Ave, but no 4th Street.

That's still better than when I dropped the Burbank San Fernando closure information in the middle of Carlsbad NM while on vacation and monitoring the closures from remote!
Really threw the local editor for a loop.
I got a PM on it 5 weeks later from the poor baffled guy.

It was like my 2nd week with Waze and I'd never left a UR before.

You don't map your network? You need to start reading your BGP broadcasts.

I'm in a shadow area and DirecTV only carries the IGP Channel.
