This was posted on I-86 in western NY ... wanted to tell the poor chap that if his daily commute involves driving to Minnesota, he should probably move there (very few jobs pay enough to cover that gasoline bill!). :D


I had one of these in South Eastern Connecticut too...

when going to my work, the map tells me to turn left and sends me around in a full circle instead of just turning left into my parking space from the road. the turn is legal.


- I don't know where you work
- I have no idea what street you are referring to
- Even if I did, I'm not mapping out your individual parking space.


...but I will contact your local DOT and ask them to put up a "No Left Turn" sign just for your parking space. :twisted:

my address is on San Carlos Way. Waze keeps directing me to enter my home from Bastanchury Road. This is not possible. I have reported this issue several times. SHAWNDOC, please do not keep saying that there is insufficient information to solve the problem. I believe my explanation of the issue is very clear.


The house runs along Bastanchury (major st), and depending on which house it is, there's not even a backyard between it and Bastanchury. The address and driveway are located on San Carlos, which is a residential st.

Thanks to Waze getting rid of any way to communicate to people reporting UR's, there's no way for me to PM them and explain there's nothing wrong with the map (there isn't, GPS tracks show the roads are where they should be), and they need to contact Bing to have the GPS coordinates moved closer to San Carlos.

So instead, the user is getting mad at ME, because I'm the only active editor in this city, and I keep "requesting more information" when he submits the UR. Guess maybe I'll just start marking it solved.


I had something similar... I got frustrated, mapped a major highway across several houses (including that user's) that was named something to the effect of "Contact Area Manager AndyPoms in the forums at [PM URL] to help resolve this issue"... The user actually made his way to the map before the update made the app & contacted me, and we were able to work his issue out... This was in the middle of nowhere though, so it may not work for you...

Do I want to know what this means?


Google Translate indicates it says "Do not see it" in Hebrew... Now the question is what do they not see?

The roads were all set to parking lot type, and were last edited in 2011.


Yea, I've gotten a bunch of those too... Some of I Solve (the McDonald's Drive Thru, etc) by removing the roads... Some I Not Identify (the big shopping mall that needs it to prevent jams/get people to the correct place)
