A lot of landmarks have just a single letter for city. I have been seeing S in the Los Angeles area and when I looked for it, it was a close landmark

It looks like an error an editor made recently, but perhaps has since been fixed on the editor but since it takes about a week or so after the editor change was made, the client may not yet reflect the state of the edit map. If you go to the editor and look in the area where that W seems to be coming from, you may be able to find it.

Alternately. the W may be assigned to segments rather far apart and this W is floating around in the area between the two (or more). Using the highligher script tool (See editor forum sticky thread), you can try using it to highlight segments belonging to that city name. It may take a while to find...

Curios W in the Map

I have made some screenshots about a curios W on the map in my area.
Every day I use waze this W is presented at the map, not at the same point. It seems it moves with me..... I have tryed to find it on the map editor, but theres no chance to catch it.


How to find it?
