small towns cluttering the Live Map

Postby shalafi » Fri Mar 05, 2010 9:15 am

When there are more towns in an area and their names would overlap, some names get chosen (a bit randomly) and those show up on the Live map, which is a bit confusing.

The larger the footprint of a city, the higher should be the priority of showing it's name on the Live map.

3 months have passed, and nothing has changed. It is very frustrating to see random names on the map instead of the major cities.

To be honest, I think it works on the client now. Live Map stayed the same.

To be very honest, I do not see a BIT of change in this field. Very frustrating again. And apart from that - how hard can it be? to make the persistence/fontsize of citynames depending on the number of roads using that name. Pooh, pooh.

Waze, get your act together.

Put up a bugtracking-system. The only activity we see from Waze-staff is the daily avalanche of tweets asking us to vote for Waze. If bugs as simple as this one were taken serious indeed, I would not even need such reminders - I would simply vote for it by myself.

Currently, I would vote Waze to get the Dilbert-Award for companies with the most demonstratable Dilbertian behavior.

fwazing is right. Fix these simple things before moving on to creating new functionality!

The new livemap look, that solves this problem, has already been implemented and is now live in the US server (http://www.waze.com/livemap/). It will be available soon in the "world" server as well (http://world.waze.com/livemap/).
