Problem: I live on XXX drive, Worcester, MA. I am told when turning onto XXX that in 0.50 of a mile take a right. I should be told to take a left because that is my street. not to go right & then left. a clear error. I've lived here 27yrs.


I'm sorry, but you're not qualified to leave this UR. You must have 30 years of experience in a given area in order to report problems. Please come back in 3 years when you're ready.

This was actually one of the most detailed UR's I've seen in a while, I trimmed it a bit for comedic value. The left onto his street was un-disabled, fixed, solved.

I think all reports should collect some demographic data, like the number of years driving experience in that area. :-)

Reported from Worcester MA:

Problem: waze bad me make 3 left turns instead of a right turn off route 1


Rt 1 is about an hour away. I replied:

Rt 1 is a thousand miles long, running from Maine to Florida. Can you help narrow the search for these 3 left turns?

Truck in road


I replied:

I removed the truck from the map. You should be all set now.

Problem: Kancamagus Highway is pronounced incorrectly. It should be more like kan-ka-MAY-gus


My reply:

The map editor cannot control pronunciation, only spelling.

Besides, if I could control pronunciation, I'd make it kang-a-MANG-us.


This argument is quite dogmatic in NH. Oh, what have I started.. ;-)

Problem: Left on Strawberry Hill Road is ridiculous


Thinking out loud:

sockslabs: User reports without providing waze route nor intended destination are ridiculous. Now we're even?

Problem: I'm missing the ride along voice! You must get it back!! It was hilarious and I miss it! Hopefully I've made my point... Please get it back


"Ride along voice"? Um, are you sure you're not hearing voices in your head? :lol:

Sorry, the ride-along voice feature was deprecated because it too closely matched the voices in some people's heads. Crazy people were complaining.

Wrong driving direction, no other info, I sent:

sockslabs(3) on March 17, 2014
The trace just shows you following the Waze provided route. What seems to be the problem?


I got back:

Reporter on March 17, 2014
I'm not sure ....do you have more info?


Um, no, thank for for asking?

sockslabs(3) What is the "general error"?

Reporter I entered an address on oak st. Wade brought to a point on route 9 west. Oak st parallels route 9. But there is half a mile between them

sockslabs(3) More details, please. Address would be helpful.

Reporter It brought me to the wrong street. I call that an error

sockslabs(3) Indubitably. All I see is that you were traveling westbound on 9. The report does not include your destination. Please provide the destination address on Oak St so I know what to fix.


All around the Mulberry Bush we go..
