Waze leaving a bad taste

Postby brandonrossl » Mon May 19, 2014 4:24 pm

I LOVE waze but it's going to lose users when things like this occur:

The Richmond airport is properly mapped but this other pin shows up in results causing people to be routed to a neighborhood behind the airport. This needs to be fixed asap but I cannot edit/remove that Pins Prediction entry.

HELP, the URs are driving me nuts!

If the problem is that waze is routing to the Google pin, then you should submit the issue on the form discussed here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=105736 That is what seems to have worked for Richmond.

The Richmond Airport issue was supposedly resolved by the finding and fixing of a bug related to Waze search mechanism, which should affect all clients.

I can't speak to general public since I use the beta android version. But the beta behavior seems to have changed, so that's good news for the future.

I'm not understanding. Waze fixed it, did they not? The initial result on each list I bring up now takes me to the correct location.

Draw and connect walking trail without direction maybe? If you don't want road.

Yeah I'd rather waze show a proper preview and make all of this easier. Showing the difference between a waze and google pin would be nice as well. The Waze development ticket was updated to 'in-progress' so hopefully they're watching this thread and making some changes to prevent this.

I'm still not convinced that creating our own database vs using Google Maps with an associated navigation pin was a good choice.
