Address pin/search locations

Postby ArthurUSCG » Thu Mar 12, 2015 2:46 pm

The location for 11901 cross road trail if you search for it, the location is coming up close to McCoy Ln. The app and live map will navigate you to McCoy Ln instead of to the stopping location for the address pin on Cross Road Trail.

There is a similar issue going on here on Bay Ave

No I am not in the MD Google hangout, I guess I should join. How do I join?

I don't know when 11901 Cross Road Trl was adjusted.
I adjusted 128 bay months ago. But the crazy thing is I get navigated to Dresser if I navigate to "home" when I am 10+ minutes away. But If I start the navigate to "home" when I am with in 10minutes, then Waze correctly navigates me to Bay.

I got another one. The pin location is correct, but Live maps and the app are navigating your to 8th street.

Since Waze appears to use postal address, I am searching for
128 Bay Ave, Prince Frederick, MD

So, I am confused, I though Waze was suppose to always route you to the road the address was on. Adding the ability to have the stop point on a different rad was going to be a future ability, but is currently unavailable?

Ahhhh! I though Waze used postal cities and not township/community names.

So, Should I add the postal city as an alternate address?

Hmm, I would think these should work. Do you know when the residential place for 11901 Cross Road Trl was added? When did you adjust the house number for 128 Bay Ave? Is there any chance these will work after the next tile build?

Hmm. I don't why the waze result for 11901 Cross Road Trl is not returned.

Is the Bay issue only when you use your "Home" favorite? Waze is routing to Bay Ave for 128 Bay Ave. The favorite locations are essentially stored as coordinates. They are not linked to the place on the waze map. So updating a place or address doesn't change the location of the favorite.
