Incorrect Directions Due To A Misplaced Pin Location/Road

Post by usa_iymzb2sw
Hi,

We have had issues with people having a hard time finding our house due to a badly placed pin location and missing road. Currently, people are informed that they've arrived at the wrong location. Our address is 5739 Valley Oak Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90068.

https://www.waze.com/livemap/directions ... 118.254302

As you can see in the Google Maps version, the directions are correct, and Google recognizes the road around the corner to the home. I have made edits to the Live Map to add the extra road extension on Valley Oak to get to 5739.

Thanks! The address has been adjusted. This should reach mobile devices within a few days. On rare occasions it can take closer to a week.

To use the updated location you will need to remove the destination from your navigation history and search for it again. Tap the search button then the three dots next to the destination. From there tap Remove. If it's Home/Work or in Favorites, you'll have to go into Favorites and do the same thing there.

Does this make sense?

Hi Mike,

Thanks! Yes, this does make sense! I really appreciate the correction, and will let you know if it works by next week.

Yep, I noticed that it showed up on the map. I haven't taken the route yet, but will check tomorrow! Thanks.

Make sure the address is removed from Waze and it's a fresh search!

There's one more little issue, which I've pointed out to you in PM. After that is corrected and the map updates a day or two later, your new edit should work properly. :)

Thanks a bunch! Amazon orders are also getting confused, hmm.

Have you had luck with your own routing?

Many of the third parties handle search on their side and pass coordinates to Waze. Amazon drivers may not even use Waze.
