Indeed, these examples do look very peculiar. You see the same instructions on Livemap too, so it's a problem with Waze routing rather than this script.

Are there any issues with roundabouts I should know about? For some normal roundabouts the script is giving the "at the roundabout take the nth exit" instruction: https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... lter=false
and viceversa, for some not normal roundabouts it's giving the "continue straight" instruction: https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... lter=false

Also, i've noticed that sometimes if I select the entry segment to a roundabout to be the segment joined to the roundabout, the directions are off. I need to select the previous segment, and then everything is ok.

To clarify, Tim means that it will show the route that Livemap would currently give, which is based on the most recent tile update, not on what WME has. Waze provides no way to calculate a route off of the WME map database, only the Livemap and app map databases (which are not always identical, by the way).

No, it shows the same route that the Livemap and the App will show, after tiles have been updated.

To see what instructions might be for individual junctions before map tiles update, have a look at Junction Angle Info.

I'm sorry if I misunderstood this script.
I thought it could show the route as it is before the map tiles have been updated.
Am I doing something wrong?

Can you give a specific example? It was working for me when I tested some routes around Gateshead...
It is possible that either the restriction is not correct, or there's a [gasp] bug in the routing server.

New WME didn't break this script, but here's an update anyway:

v1.20 - now with Vehicle Type. Select between Private car or Taxi for testing restrictions.
