POI / Landmark Searching

Postby CBenson » Fri Mar 15, 2013 10:16 am

Waze POI / landmark searching is back. If I search for a business name (and people have landmarked the business (think chain stores)), the initial results are now under the waze tab and are to landmarks on the waze map. The live map now also gives similar results. I hadn't seen this for quite a while.

The biggest problem I have is that the address is not given in the results (only the distance, which appears be as the crow flies) which it makes it very difficult to determine which result is actually the desired destination.

I will also add that you can route to landmarks that do not display in the client. The oddly named small landmark here doesn't show on the map. But you can route to it.
