Railroad Crossings are visible in the WME, but I can not delete them. I can delete them in the beta WME.

In the app settings, under "Alerts & reports", then "Reports", you can choose to turn off Railroad crossing alerts and/or hide them from the map.

I must be one of the beta testers as I have this notification alert when I am 1/2 mile from a crossing. Is there a way to disable the audio tone and just allow the popup to show? The alert tone is quite aggravating already as I live a few blocks from a railroad crossing so the tone comes on every trip home.

I agree. How do you disable? I don’t see an option in settings to disable the railroad crossing alerts. They are quite distracting and I don’t want them on.

And you are quite wrong. I drive with both (both = two) eyes open and head on a swivel. 50+ years of driving experience teaches those who are receptive to look, look again, and look yet again. Railroad tracks are slow down zones simply for the sake of the brutally expensive rubber I ride around on and low ground clearance.

Riding on Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3 275/35ZR20 in the rear and 245/40ZR20 in the front. $1200 in rubber. I roll slooooow and easy over dem bad ol' railumroad trax.

Living out here in Hicksville, we have learned to cool our jets and listen for things like A TRAIN BLOWING ITS HORN and stuff like that.

The railroad crossing warning is an annoying, useless, distracting heap of steaming (insert your favorite steamed item here.... maybe rice or shrimp or whatever).

TL;DR - A feature I have cut off keeps turning itself back on. Why? Can this be fixed? Can it be fixed without some goody two shoes attempting to lecture an old man on what he should be thankful for?

Nice moral posturing there, ma'am.

AHA! Something helpful! Bug has been reported.

RR crossing alerts are now enabled and some trains can block a roadway for quite some time. So, why not have an "active train on route" alert? Route timing and eta could be adjusted or perhaps an option to reroute around a roadway that is, or will be blocked, could be offered. Could you integrate with RR companies to achieve this?

The distance from the tracks seems to be slowly increasing by maybe 1 or 2 feet a week. :?: It use to activate on the far side of a street, now it activates on the near side of it and keeps inching it's way.

Beginning to wonder if the RR company is moving the tracks, just to mess with me. :mrgreen:
