When I find screwed up or mis-named landmarks I didn't create, they get deleted. And then I add a new, correct one. :shock:

In my experience you can only add landmark points at a relatively small distance of the landmark. If the distance is to big, you can wiat for ever for it to show up, but it won't. When I want to add a landmark point at a greater distance, I temporarily change the shape of the landmark so that it overlaps the desired location of the point. Then, when the point is finished, I change the shape of the POI back.

Unfortunately, the client isn't guiding me to the "Entrance of exit for cars", just to some arbitrary point close to the landmark. So my guess is that the point don't matter yet. I'd be glad to hear someone with a different experience.

I have yet to try to nav to a landmark with an entrance point. I hope to some day soon.

I park in a city-owned parking garage. I've made it a landmark, built parking lot roads that follow the main aisles, connected those parking lot roads to the main roads around the garage, and added landmark points for the entrances and exits making sure they are right on top of the parking lot roads that connect to the public roads.

Result? Waze just routes to the middle of the landmark with out really paying attention to the exit which may be closest. I guess the average speeds of the roads inside the garage are making it favor a certain way? As it is waze will have me drive right past two entrances and go around the block to a third entrance. All road connectivity is correct.

I can see the logic of trying to route to the middle of a landmark/POI when entrances are NOT defined, but if they are defined I think that is a better destination. Especially for increasing sizes of landmarks.
