Edit needed, beyond my understandings

Postby FastKatt » Mon Nov 19, 2012 4:57 pm

I was directed, by Waze, to drive in a circle, just ahead of the point marked on this map:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-84.87 ... TTTTTTTTFT
There is no reason for this, but I can't see what needs to be changed to fix it.
Any help would be great, thanks for looking!

What was your destination, or near your destination, and what route would you expect to follow?

I was headed to the expressway... I would expect to just drive straight (as I did 'see arrows')
Waze wanted me to drive around the block & get back on the same street I was driving on.

If it really matters, I was headed from the Dunkin' Donuts inside Lee University to a home in Chattanooga.

According to the UR that was on the map earlier, but someone closed, Waze was trying to get you to go back the other direction, not get back on the same road the same direction. Maybe that wasn't your UR...

FastKatt, looks like you drew some "ramps" on a "mapcat bowtie"'. I was trying to find additional links to help explain this since it takes some getting used to when you see it. Have read at this link viewtopic.php?f=10&t=11346&p=93667&hilit=mapcat+bowtie#p93667

There are other examples you can find, if you search for "mapcat bowtie".

That edit was done after my issue. I'm not sure who closed my issue, the email was deleted. I'll try to run that route soon and see what happens.

Okay, I ran the route again, still has issues...
As you can see, it wants me to drive a loop and then make a U-turn back on the road I'm already driving on.
I'm not sure what to do to correct it & also think I don't have the map editing rights for the changes

Those segments are red because you haven't finished the editing job of assigning a city and name. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Crea ... ng_details

They also should NOT be ramps. Ramps are for grade-separated interchanges only. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Ramp#Ramps

I've unlocked the segments so you can connect the dedicated turn lanes. Though, in reality, they really add too much complexity to an intersection which only really needs one dedicated turn lane (northeast). The other turns simply don't need them.

Thanks, but you do realize I am talking about the directions infront of my location?
The "loop" NW of my trouble marker.
