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

First, so glad you made this, I saw it, and installed it. this thing rocks.

I have a request for those of us with malfunctioning eye's. Can you add a BLINK feature to the highlights? Something we can turn on and off. I am partially red blind, so seeing "locks", "No Names", and no City all blend together and into the background. Turning everything else off ( roads, Bing, city etc) helps, but the flash would be unmistakable.

If it can't be done, or your busy, no biggie.

Again thanks for coding this for all of us and looking at this.

Interesting, works for me now as well ... not sure what I did, I know I reloaded a few times. Will keep an eye on it.

No, it doesn't auto-update (though I nearly added it). Install again to get v1.3 (there's a link in the editor).

Hmm... I also had trouble getting it to work just now, but it did in the end. Try reloading the editor.
This might be related to the 'toolbar not enabled after login' bug that we have in Chrome.

Here's what you should see if you find a node that isn't right:

  • 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...

:)


With FF14 it does not appear to do what you have described for soft turns, revcon or for highlighting the segments connected to each end of the selected segment. Everything else appears to be working. Did not try other browsers.

Do you have the file name correct. If it has a (1) it won't work.

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. :)

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?

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