Oh, my God. I was desperately looking for the "new" function :) Listen to your volunteers, at least a little bit... :D

The Lane Guidance - Knowledge Base doc seems to have lost the title Junctions not supported from Page 16.

Question about heuristics. I understand the criteria for heuristics to work but am curious if it will still work if there are extra segments but you only map lanes on the #, highlighted in image below.

Also the Knowledge Base document says the internal should be <50m in the criteria list but later <30m in the examples. Can someone confirm which it is.

Following the UK online meetup it was implied that HQ were not working to develop lane guidance heuristics beyond the current setup, so the question from Harmonious4 is a valid one and Staff need to understand that there are more scenarios where heuristics would benefit a junction much more than the standard H & #.

I agree this isn't a show stopper for release but it shouldn't be dropped like every other project.

A: "Not for now. Please send us examples of what you need and ideas they have in the WME forum. We can share it with the Product team"

It's not currently possible to map lane guidance to show it has restricted directions, you should discuss with your local community how it should or should not be mapped.

Left driving countries will reach 100% in the following weeks.

:mrgreen:
Not sure why staff are reluctant to post in public but lane guidance is now open to 100% of left driving countries also according to a post by Ruben in Centercode*.

*I know the first rule of Centercode is not to talk about Centercode but there is no reason this shouldn't be public information.

The trigger point for lane guidance can be country specific, but you can only set it based on Minor Highway and higher (currently 1km), and Primary Street and below (currently 500m). Speak to your Community Manager.

Lane guidance is fully released to 100% of users on all platforms (even integrated car systems I believe), the last group being left driving countries back in September 2020.

Sorry - but I'm positive, that someone who can't identify the meaning of the "straight on" arrow will also have severe difficulties in reading the words "Continue straight" - don't you think? So why do you need them?
That's what icons are for: avoiding text. Why display arrow AND text? Just in case someone didn't get the meaning of an arrow pointing upward? Come on!
