That's not a solution. Waze won't navigate you to a railroad anyway. The problem is not that the place would put you on a railroad, but that the script will put a place on a railroad.


Correct me if I'm wrong, but the script isn't putting it on the RR tracks, it's just showing where the closest segment is, related to where you put the place point. Without the script, the stop point will still be in the same spot.

The script does NOT MOVE the stop point, it just indicates where the stop point will resolve in a routing request.

When you navigate to a place, Waze will end your route on the closest routeable segment to the stop point. Since RR are no longer routable Waze will skip over them when looking for the closest segment to use. Therefore when this script was indicating the RR as the closest segment, it was misrepresenting what the routing destination would be.

Could you update the script with an @exclude to prevent it from running on editor profile pages? It never times out so it's continually trying to load on them.
