Thanks for the update, Tim! :)

WME Color Highlights for Safari has been updated with Tim's version 1.3. Version 0.1.2 hadn't been set up yet to allow for automatic updates, but it should work going forward.

You can download the latest version here:

Please let me know if you have any issues.

Thanks!
~Mike

Script to add Highlights for Segments & Landmarks - v1.3

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sun Sep 30, 2012 6:24 pm

I haven't installed the last couple updates. Thanks to Tim for this super tool! And Mike for keeping us Safari users happy. :)

Has the problem related to not allowing the toolbar to enable when not already logged in yet been able to be fixed?

How about the issue where segments don't select when loading a permalink which includes segments?

Nope, 'fraid not. It also seems to stop the search box from working too. I'm at a loss as to what causes this, though I suspect a load event is getting disrupted.

I thought I had, but apparently not. It doesn't always manifest when testing.

I'll have another go at tracking these bugs down for the next update... (if WME lets me)

  • When a node is selected, it highlights segments with soft turns, reverse connectivity and U-turns
  • When 1 segment is selected, it highlights connecting segments at each end, as per selected nodes
  • Adds highlight for a selected road type (purple) - lowest precedence, excludes obvious types

See Soft and Hard Turns for explanation of terms...

:)


What do the different colors say? I've seen yellow and pink so far..

Click on a node, and you'll see colours explained in the side...

I might be doing something wrong, but selecting a segment or a node doesn't seem to show these additional descriptions -- I don't see any JS errors (on my part) that would prevent this from happening either.

I'm not seeing the explanation of what the different colors mean on connecting segments. Tried with Chrome and Firefox.

Try looking at this node. It's just outside my editable area but the highlight still works for me, so I hope it will work for you. It is on the International server though ;) . The node has 2 soft turns and 1 u-turn allowed (I think that is "selfcon"). I've also seen purple highlights ("revcon"?) but don't have one to hand!

If I hover my mouse over the text with the coloured backgrounds in the Properties sheet, I get text showing the instructions to fix the problems. I'm using bog-standard Chrome on Windows XP.

I get the impression that most problems appear on roads that were probably once split. I've spent several hours going over all the major routes in my (fairly small) "home" area and I've found a considerable number of problems - including at least 3 affecting my daily drive to & from work that I haven't been able to identify up until now. Mainly unexpected u-turns when I disagree with Waze as to which way I should go!

I'm seeing it now when clicking on a node. I was thinking for some reason it would also show up when clicking on a segment. I assume "U-Turns" are the same as "selfcon"? Or would that be Reversecon?

I think (and I'm definitely outside my comfort zone here :oops: ) that self-connectivity is what allows those unexpected u-turns you see during navigation. In other words you are driving up a segment and Waze tells you to come straight back down the segment at the next junction. I presume that the segment is "connected to itself" and will therefore route back at the end.

Reverse connectivity (purple highlight) I have only seen with one-way segments, where another segment joining the one-way segment at it's "outlet" shows a purple highlight on the one-way segment. I presume this means that, even though it's one way in one direction, Waze sees a valid routing going the other way.

Mind you it is nearly 3am here and I'm watching Sunday Night Football and doing some work stuff and I really should be sleeping! I'm sure someone who knows what they're talking about will come along and correct me. :)
