The filename must end in "user.js" for Chrome to accept it.

Right, and if you save another version of the file, Chrome download sees the extension as .js instead of .user.js and makes it .user(1).js.

I had this problem a while back and must've eventually deleted everything in the directory in frustration and it worked on the next try. Never realized until I did the same thing this morning what the problem was.

Yes. I just wanted to make sure it was clear what the filename should end with in case itwasn't clear. It's a bit picky of Chrome, IMO.

If this script can run via Tampermonkey (Chrome) it would automatically update to latest version available.
The problem reported could be easily eliminated :-)

Thanks Timbones,
this is a really great tool.
In Austria we also use it, to explain problems in the routing intructions (or sometimes to confirm reports of problems before we take on the quest to solve them) - works perfectly.

But it makes me long for more... ;)

Would it be possible to apply a similar tool in the editor? Sometimes I would like to check, if I got it right BEFORE its in the map (weired junctions etc.)
Oh, how I would love that... :mrgreen:

I know, there is basically no way to enter a start and an end point in the editor, but maybe if you select two segments...for a routing from the first to the second...
I have to admit, I have not the faintest idea, what and how much has to be done to get such a tool...
...I just would like it :lol:

This is something which has been brought up in other threads. In short, unless the functionality is provided by Waze, we cannot build this on top of the editor map, at least not without a LOT of coding work. And even then, only roads selectable in the current view would work.

The code from this tool only uses the information which comes from the routing servers. The routing servers do not use the edit map to make routes. There is no similar functionality on the edit map.

Waze has told us before that they have this on a long-term roadmap. I would not expect anything official for many months, maybe a year or more.

Thanks for the info, Alan...

Somehow I had a feeling, the situation would be like this...

I already suspected, the tool would mount on the basic routing done by the livemap itself - still I had a vague hope, it would do the trick by itself.

...but still a man can dream :lol:

Once again, thanks anyway for your time - especially if there have been other threads already which I have been too lazy to look for ... ;)

Is this broken for anyone else today? Tried to do directions from Charlotte, NC to Upper Marlboro, MD and the direction list seems to be working just getting a lot of the text "none" listed for non existant turns.

Never seen that before.

I see the same today. A few directions, lots of "none" rows, and a few more directions.

EDIT: The "none" entries correspond to mileage markers every .1 miles. They've definitely made changes to the response of the RoutingRequest as these "NONE" markers have not existed until very recently. The returned JSON text is significantly longer now, and full of those NONE entries.

EDIT2: The returned code also now includes a "TTS" entry. It looks like Waze is preparing to enable their own navigation list, which should better mirror exactly what the app TTS would read out. There is also a value for "additionalInstruction" which I don't recall seeing before.

Doing a little research with the edit map and the "NONE" markers. What it looks like to me is every junction that has no effect on the directions gets a "NONE" marker. Do you agree with that assessment?
