Hi, volunteer map editor here to solve your problem. What happened?

(I like to imagine that you saw a magician wave his wand and turn all of the boutiques and expensive department stores in Manhattan into a modern cut rate bazaar. But you probably just had a problem with autocorrect or voice input.)

Ummm, commenting without context, but isn't that his exact complaint? That Waze is suggesting a U-turn on the highway?

What you you mean 'turn not allowed' on 290 W?

Reporter on June 24, 2014
No U turn ..

sockslabs(3) on June 24, 2014
I don't understand. You're on 290W, a 3-lane interstate highway. Taking a U-turn is going to kill somebody. What do you mean?


He hasn't responded back -- I fear something terrible may have happened. ;)

Please, no... I'll take funky written answers any day over unintelligible noises. Plus, try doing that while trying to look busy on your laptop. "Hey, are you on a conference call all day long with that headset?"

In regards to the General Error UR option... I wonder if it could be something to bring up with Waze directly at the UK meet up this Saturday. I want to push for a report cache option anyway for low signal areas. Maybe not for traffic but for user reports and map errors it'd be helpful.
Also maybe a way to record a Wazers voice (so much easier) recording of the issue which we could then playback in WME.

Waze never suggests U-turns. Instead it'll send you 2 miles down back roads and take 3 lefts. Plus the interstate segments are all 1-way. So: huh?



Depends on your definition of U-turn. We have lots of URs on "illegal U-turns" where we have a dual carriageway. Waze treats it as two lefts, but the real world effect is a U-turn.

I've also heard that in some cases, the new version of Waze will actually give a U-turn instruction.

SHELL and TEXACO are all caps on their signs but Chevron is mixed case. I convert everything to mixed case in the editor so as not to be obnoxious. However, I haven't figures out a way to make the double x in Exxon in the editor.


Type plus plus and tilt.

Before you put this down as being a case of Jolly Editor (someone named qwaletee)... well, you'd be right, but for the plural. Two editors here. The other one was just kidding around with me.

So we're branching out from solving map issues now?


You don't map your network? You need to start reading your BGP broadcasts.
