I assume this takes account of countries where people drive on the left (and roundabouts are clockwise). Can you add Ireland to the list of countries like this? All our roundabouts are being reported as being backwards

Text bubble reads "Click 'Report' to review map issues" but there is no button named "Report" that I can see. There is a "Show report" button though.

Example where reverse connection does not appear to be detected: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... s=33330449
. All three 2-way segments have an allowed connection reverse into the 1-way segment, but WMEV doesn't catch it.

Suggestions: If you can have only one active "report" then I would suggest a single icon to run the report and then clear the report. The two buttons which look like "Play" and "Trash" are ok, but a single button which switches makes more sense. Also, I was a bit wary about clicking the Trash icon because the possibility of it meaning "delete something from the Waze map" was present in my mind. The icon currently matches the Waze delete icon, so at least that should change.

Request: Add detection of segments which share the same two endpoints: https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=6&lat ... 4,61233176
This is known to cause routing errors and incorrect start-point display issues in the app. Also can cause the "requested route" information for Update Requests to show the wrong segment.

When I select an interstate segment, it pops up a warning about city name being in the city field. It wants me to remove the city name from the interstate. I didn't think that was set in stone.

I agree. WMEV should not give this guidance. And WMEV links to https://www.waze.com/wiki/Fixing_%22smudged%22_cities
which doesn't say anything about No Name for freeway segments.

This is awesome! I've noticed I can't switch tabs while waiting to finish the scan - it appears to stop when I go to a different tab and then start over when I switch back. Nonetheless, this is a really helpful extension.
