this ability to edit the map is both a boon and a bane. accuracy and consistency are both compromised. kaya pala hindi makakita ng route kasi yung mga kalsada, although it looks ok sa phone, sa map editor pala eh putol-putol and yung junction does not allow entry to the next segment. ibig sabihin, hindi pinagaralan nung nag-draw ng map kung pano ang tamang paggawa ng mga kalye. Kaya for routing, highly unreliable ang waze. For traffic updates, konti pa ang users dito sa atin to get complete traffic situations for your way to work or home or wherever. Kanina, medyo accurate yung ETA ko sa bahay, kasi nagaadjust din sya ng ETA kung nagkakaron ng heavy traffic sa dadaanan.
i hope the developers can integrate Garmin or Open Street Maps.

if you see the ramp going to bacoor, yung name nya is the road itself as well as yung exit. i decided to name it that way para sa traffic reporting na din. ok lang ba kung ganyan? also.. if going out of a highway i used a ramp instead, kasi magsasabi ng "exit at left" yung navigation guidance kung pupunta ka dun... any thoughts?
given that, whats the best name for this halimbawa?
also, i see <roadname> (NB) and also <roadname> N and <roadname> (N), which is pareho lng ang meaning. ano sa tingin nyo ang mas maganda and malinis tingnan?

i actually promoted waze sa yahoogroup ng waypoints.ph. its a group of gps enthusiasts pero parang di sila interesado.
yung isang road na madaming segments kailangan lang yata siguraduhin na yung arrow at the end (when you click it) should be green towards the next segment. pag red, malamang hindi talaga iroroute duon. pero i checked yung sinasabi mo, parang may maliit na line na nakapatong sa isa pang line which is not connected to the previous segment dun sa intersection ng kalayaan/cp garcia. baka kaya nalilito sa routing.
@dhageuk it seems that we both edited the same segments pano kaya mangyayari nyan? taga cavite ka din?
Why doesn't Waze work with OpenStreetMaps?
We are committed to keeping Waze free for our end users who help build the system, yet we're a commercial company who's looking to generate revenue. When looking at the OSM licensing terms, we felt that they might limit us from certain business models in the future, and, therefore, decided to use TIGER maps instead. This may change in the future, however, and we are open to potential cooperation with OSM, and other, similar, services down the line.
use thw old editor in splitting its easier.... split ko sya pag separating roads e
nope... lagi lang ako dun hehehe
