Check the map editor in the area around where the directions become correct - there could be a error (or errors) along your route.

Waze has problems to find the route I am driving

Postby Direttissimer » Wed Oct 02, 2013 10:22 am

Hi,
I am driving a partly different route between home and office than Waze suggests while navigating.
The time difference between the two routes is only a few seconds.
On the way to office Waze correctly recognizes that I am not following its navigation and automatically switches the navigation then to the way I want to go. This is fine so far.

But on the same way back from office to home Waze has problems to find my way. When I leave the marked route it finds a totally different one which is a detour of >10 minutes which I am ignoring (of course). For several kilometers Waze tells me to "drive back to the marked route". Then behind a specific crossing it suddenly finds my way and the target time jumps down by 10 minutes.

I can reproduce this behaviour every time I drive.

Maybe I should note that there are some mobile connection problems due to insufficient network coverage in that area. Country is Germany.

I would like to help to improve the navigation by this report. Please let me know how.

Cheers
Diret!s

Thanks for your help. I could solve the issue with the map editor as you suggested. Now it finds my way.

Link to the right editor https://world.waze.com/editor/ for the German map.
https://www.waze.com/editor/ gifs you a empty map for Germany. Because it is used for the map off North America.

Also note that Waze apparently has some issues with re-routing. It will sometimes try to get you back to your original route even if that means a longer distance or time instead of routing you down the road you're on. I don't know if this can happen anywhere or only when you are on a lesser road type than the original route. For example, the new route being a Street and the original route being a Minor Highway. When this is the case, you'll tend to find that if you turn off navigation and then turn it back on, it will no longer try routing you back to the original route and will give you the fastest route instead.
