Problem: I arrived at designated destination, but map (or waze) is not accurate and shows me still in transit.


Know when to stop, dude. Trust your eyes, not the technology.

I've found the reporter often doesn't recollect where they were when they filed the report, so I usually usually say something like "can you please provide more information on the 'general error' you reported on E. Main St. in Shrewsbury, MA?" If I get any response at all, it's often something like "I was heading towards my destination and it told me to take that left." Improving the quality of that initial response is paramount, because it seems that the probability of further responses decreases exponentially.

Problem: left from right lane


Are you asking for Waze to keep track of which lane you're in? GPS doesn't have that kind of resolution. If you see a left coming up, then you might want to get into the left lane.

Reported on I-290W: Turn not allowed

sockslabs(3) on June 24, 2014
What you you mean 'turn not allowed' on 290 W?

Reporter on June 24, 2014
No U turn ..

sockslabs(3) on June 24, 2014
I don't understand. You're on 290W, a 3-lane interstate highway. Taking a U-turn is going to kill somebody. What do you mean?


He hasn't responded back -- I fear something terrible may have happened. ;)

Ummm, commenting without context, but isn't that his exact complaint? That Waze is suggesting a U-turn on the highway?


Waze never suggests U-turns. Instead it'll send you 2 miles down back roads and take 3 lefts. Plus the interstate segments are all 1-way. So: huh?

Missing road (user reported)


sockslabs(3) on July 14, 2014
Thank you, we've had a rash of road thefts in this area. Sometimes they take them in broad daylight! Which one did they abscond with this time?

“Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die.”

-Mel Brooks


So I agree with you, late for an appointment is merely tragic. Now if he had taken a right turn while going over a bridge simply because the GPS told him so, that's comedy.
