Wrong map?

A strange UR, viewable at the link, and below.

Would the GPS system be so screwy that Waze somehow thinks this person is on the wrong island (a couple hundred miles away)?

That's a "not identified" error. With no other information. I'm thinking he doesn't realize what island he's on (could be a visitor thinking the big island of Hawaii is where Honolulu is). If there was a GPS track for him, then you could figure it out.

I have noticed if I'm down the road and I open up Waze, it will take a minute or so to update to my current location. I had gone to my friend's house in another part of the city and didn't use Waze to get to her apartment. When I was leaving her apartment, I turned Waze on and gave my current location as my apartment. I even started driving and after about a minute, it finally updated, so it could be that too.

Thanks. That's a good enough diagnosis for me.
