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.

LOL!
So we're branching out from solving map issues now?

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.

Anybody get any about the scoreboard being down yet?

Funny thing... about the same time the scoreboard went down, I also lost about 900 edits on the dashboard, and I did not see the dashboard update for about 36 hours, maybe a bit more.
It has updated now, can't tell if my "lost" edits came back because I've been editing heavily the last 8 hours or so and have no idea where I should be.

Problem:

instead of saying x amount of miles the voice says minutes. so if it's 5 miles it says 5 minutes. minutes instead of miles.


https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... 997&zoom=3

Any way to change it to centons? :-)

How to handle it? It's supposed to do that over "x" number of miles.

I rather like it, because when it says "In 45 minutes, exit right" and my exit is 12 miles away, I know it's time to stop for dinner.

I first noticed it with 3.8.1, but I was not using Waze heavily for actual routing prior to that... I was only using it for traffic alerts.

LOL!


I might have a good one in a couple of days.

Report = "Missing Road"
Okay, map and SV show a break in the road where it could cross a RR siding.

I ask the reporter if the road is now connected.

No... the road is not connected.

I asked for clarification today, I'm expecting that maybe he thinks that Waze is the place to ask that the road be completed?

If that was his landing, the FAA would like to talk to him.

That's a taxiway!

BTW: Cute name on that runway.
Doesn't exactly match up with best practices, but I like it!
