Have you tried the custom comments add-on.... I use it all the time. Have added NYC related comments and use them all the time..... Try it you'll like it...

I hope you don't mind but I am going to add that to my custom comments.

Also going to check out the auto hot key script.

I have to Thank Rick again.... This script and the add-on custom comments are a God sent. I send over a 1000 comments a month. And they all start with one of my custom comments.

The custom comments script is not supposed to update on its own....

Just as a reminder the custom comments script might have to be reloaded so save your custom comments if you have to do that....

Unfortunately automated reply is something you have to take up with the powers that be. I'm sure the technology exist but I don't think the want to implement it.

URs are the life blood of the Waze app. It is what sets us apart from every other GPS app.

A Wazer can see something, report it and get it fixed. And sometimes in days.

Each UR should be reviewed and tried to be fixed.

I thank Rick for this tool, I use it in conjunction with my detective skills and fix the map.

He could automate the whole process, of this I have no doubt, but then they wouldn't need Us.

Thanks JD, Brooklyn NY USA
