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.

Funny. (Not). That sounds exactly like how the www Live Map works already. So, if they change it, I probably won't notice the difference. LOL. Not.


They're talking about implementing the new look of the www live map to the world live map. So I was describing the www live map, not the world live map. IMO it would be very stupid of Waze to implement this new display on the world live map as well, unless they fix it first.

Totally agree! Don't recall ever getting a reason for not implementing it on world server either! :(


Trust me, you guys don't want the new live map the way it is right now!

No official reason, but there are problems with the new map on the www server (different zoomlevels have different sync time, some levels do not sync at all and show info from 6 months ago).

Great! But when was soon?
