If it is not your own truck, you can be picky.

Idle threats!


This is probably just the tip of the iceberg: lawyers all over the world are spamming Waze, pressing for "financial contribution". That may be how the speedcams in Germany were lost.

Problem: Kerstmis
Reported on: yesterday

Kerstmis means Christman. Yeah I could see how that'd become problematic in July.


My guess: user tried to report "kermis" (fancy fair) as a reason for a closure but the autocorrection got it wrong. And who is Christman? :-)

User performed a U-Turn and went on his/her way. I guess Waze needs to keep train schedules and route accordingly :lol:

Definitely not.
On my iDevices I get redirected to the iTunes-page advertising googlemaps. I have googlemaps installed, but it isn't launched.

Case of "jolly speechrecognition" again - should have been "turn", but whatever dialect was used didn't make it sound like that...

I found that pressing the earphone-jack hard enough to the tube it will fit in without adapter. Just try it yourself and save that $0.99!

In the end, making U-turns is a balance between personal taste, turning-radius of the vehicle and properties on the map. (30 ton truck - check. Prefer no U-turns at all - check)
