Perhaps it has been longer. I just noticed it today because I was waiting to see a new turn instruction. While Waze says the map for NA has been updated and the Livemap date reflects that, changes I made prior to 8PM GMT are not in the livemap nor app map today.

Time/distance display in the simple lists would be excellent.

Yes. Tim was thinking of adding that information in a while ago, but I think he busy.

Livemap Navigation Browser Addon (v0.6)

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Nov 17, 2012 4:40 pm

Thanks Tim! I'll try it out. I noted some changes like tts above. I saw the toll value too. More robust built-in web-based navigation planning which includes more app-type options seems reasonable...

Tim, I agree with your assessment. Earlier, I didn't pay close enough attention to where the junctions were.

Andy, the instruction used to be called "continue" in the route list, and now appears to be called "none" and has always existed in the instructions passed. However, the app doesn't receive an instruction for this. Waze knows we want to be able to have this for specific situations, but in general, no instruction is needed to stay going straight through a 4-way intersection. You may also be interested to know that the UR routes used to show this continue instruction as well. Note the graphics and information on http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Upda ... ted_Routes

I see the same today. A few directions, lots of "none" rows, and a few more directions.

EDIT: The "none" entries correspond to mileage markers every .1 miles. They've definitely made changes to the response of the RoutingRequest as these "NONE" markers have not existed until very recently. The returned JSON text is significantly longer now, and full of those NONE entries.

EDIT2: The returned code also now includes a "TTS" entry. It looks like Waze is preparing to enable their own navigation list, which should better mirror exactly what the app TTS would read out. There is also a value for "additionalInstruction" which I don't recall seeing before.

This is something which has been brought up in other threads. In short, unless the functionality is provided by Waze, we cannot build this on top of the editor map, at least not without a LOT of coding work. And even then, only roads selectable in the current view would work.

The code from this tool only uses the information which comes from the routing servers. The routing servers do not use the edit map to make routes. There is no similar functionality on the edit map.

Waze has told us before that they have this on a long-term roadmap. I would not expect anything official for many months, maybe a year or more.

Yes. I just wanted to make sure it was clear what the filename should end with in case itwasn't clear. It's a bit picky of Chrome, IMO.

The filename must end in "user.js" for Chrome to accept it.
