Here's a good one! Apparently this is one vote against more communications for the WME Update Request system. This Wazer is really jolly.

"wtf. I keep sending this and I keep getting emails asking for more details. this pos told me to get off a main road, now it's going to put me back on on. it needs to keep people on main roads instead on residential streets! and please don't email me about it."

Am I a bastard for marking it "Not identified"?


Here?

They were things like "no it's not here its still down the road" and "ok I am here now"


Did you mark them as solved or "Not Identified"?


If I don't make an edit to the map or know that an edit was made to correct the issue since the last map tile update, I mark as 'not identified'.

The risk here is that the Wazer will get the email and then try to figure out how to fix it themselves. Likely they can't fix the issue since the data that needs to be fixed (POI and Street address lookups) is external to Waze. But I really think solved is not the appropriate response since it is surely not solved.

Best case is the Wazer finds the forum and get search for or ask for help. Then it can be explained how the POI and address lookups function and that likely the best approach is to correct the source data (if it is clearly incorrect), or understand why it works like this.

Sorry, I didn't notice 'Cartouche'. I wouldn't do anything with those. They are obsolete.

"the entrance to Costco is here not on Fenton Parkway. I don't get points for reaching mt destination because I enter the Costco lot from a different dire tion than you register on your maps"

No points since you didn't reach your destination? That's a new one.

905 E AROUND 5 MILES NEW PART OF THE FWY IT'S BEEN OPEN NOT RETECTED FOR THE GPS. ON THE LEFT STILL OPEN, IS THE OLD 905 FWY, OTAY MESA SAN DIEGO CALIFORNIA, PLEASE UPDATE IT, BECOUSE THE GPS GOES CRAZY


The new section of SR-905 just opened on 7/30. The map was updated on Monday 8/6. Most of the road was laid in many weeks ago but not connected up since it was only estimated. As we all know there were no map updates for many weeks and it didn't make it in to the update that just processed. Nothing I can do to make it update faster :lol:

Waze is also at fault here. Why not prompt the user for the street name and capture it when they choose the missing road report?
