General error (user reported)
Problem: Brandon
Reported on: March 24

Um ... don't know who Brandon is or why he's a problem to you. Might want to discuss that with your therapist (or with Brandon himself ;)) rather than with your smartphone. :P

And, no, there are no streets named "Brandon" anywhere in that city. However, there were two other UR's posted on the same block the next day, and both equally unintelligible and with no explanation: a "missing bridge/overpass" (the nearest bridge is a half-mile away, and the nearest overpass is about a mile away) and a "turn not allowed" (with no routing information to indicate which turn or which direction). :roll:

Problem: the driver is way behind on the map

We actually caught this UR on a nearby traffic camera:

Update Request: General error
, system is not learning route changes no matter how many times I drive the route.

Maybe because you're always driving the slower route? :roll:

Problem: earls court exhibition center. LOCATED HERE!!!

Reported at the end of a cul-de-sac round the back of Earls Court clearly marked "No access to exhibition halls" - although admittedly accompanied by a Waze-provided route that took them straight past the public entrance!

Response: problem located. BETWEEN SEAT AND DASHBOARD!!!

Loose nut on keyboard(or touch screen), tighten carefully!.

We can add landmark gas stations. What Doomedtx is referring to is when you go to the gas option in the app, and set the gas prices. That is the one that we can't add to app. If you find the Fina this user is reporting, you'll see a landmark gas station labeled "Fina" but you won't find "Fina" in the gas prices section of the app.
