Multiple types of roundabout icon?

Post by joshbrw
I noticed when driving the other day that the roundabout icon for the upcoming roundabout showed the direction of leaving the roundabout, rather than just having the exit number in a circle.

I think these icons are much clearer as they show you which direction you are aiming to leave a roundabout, ("exit 2" doesn't give much context). I was wondering if this is a bug, or something that can be enabled in the app settings?

This is because of the geometry of the roundabout. If it's a "normal" roundabout, where streets are basically 90 or 180 degree angles, you'll get the icon you did. For anything non-normal, Waze provides the exit count.

Ah I see, that makes sense. It'd be nice if Waze could provide a Setting to make that the icon that always shows. I find it much more helpful to know whereabouts the exit is located on the roundabout, especially as CarPlay doesn't always show the directions in the clearest way

I think the challenge is getting the number of arrows and direction when they can change from roundabout to roundabout.
