Not quite "any" Walmart -- Walmart #2326 has very few GPS tracks inside it. But Walmart #1976 is quite a mess! That's about the worst one in my general area -- the others look reasonably clear of muddy GPS tracks. :D

Not the Walmart where I'm currently sitting in the break room ;) -- we're nestled comfortably in the suburban fringe of a rather small city, far from anything remotely dangerous. :)

General error (user reported)
Problem: wrong street name
Reported on: March 23


Oh, goody, a guessing game. OK, I'll rename the street to "Clueless User Dr", and if that's not right, you can post another UR tomorrow.
:D

Or you could try looking it up in a reliable and authoritative reference guide online ;). For example, I use NYS Orthos Online to get street names for just about anywhere on this continent (although the aerial images are only available for NY, the map still shows for other states and provinces). You might have access to other governmental sources in your area; the "United States" country forum here has a thread that lists such sources for the USA.

Yes, undoubtedly the Wazer should have given you the actual street name in addition to the basically-useless comment that was given -- but it's not always a hard task to find out the needed information (I use a one-click Bookmarklet that opens the Orthos site to the current WME lat/long coordinates and zoom level for quick and easy reference).

General error (user reported)
Problem: Brandon
Reported on: March 24

Um ... don't know who Brandon is or why he's a problem to you. Might want to discuss that with your therapist (or with Brandon himself ;)) rather than with your smartphone. :P

And, no, there are no streets named "Brandon" anywhere in that city. However, there were two other UR's posted on the same block the next day, and both equally unintelligible and with no explanation: a "missing bridge/overpass" (the nearest bridge is a half-mile away, and the nearest overpass is about a mile away) and a "turn not allowed" (with no routing information to indicate which turn or which direction). :roll:

I thought that it should be confirmed by more wazers before it disappears? Are there more policemen sitting behind waze client running and marking those warnings?
