This isn't actually a good idea. You don't want U turns at the end of dead end roads, generally.

I've seen, personally and in the forums, instances where routing will think going down a dead-end and turning around at the end is better than finding some other legal route.

If you're going the wrong way down a dead-end, Waze will give you a route line and tell you to proceed to the highlighted route, basically.

True you don't need people to keep getting routed down your/anybodys deadend as a turn around. Didnt think about that.

JNF was specifically designed to NOT enable the u-turn at the dead-end junction due to the way Waze overuses them. When the routing engine is fixed to stop doing this, then I'd agree that JNF could change.

This also frequently causes the MPs where the user didn't follow the given route to turn into the dead end to turn around and go back. Most drivers hate this kind of navigation.

I was not aware of the Waze routing issue. With that in mind, it makes absolute sense that JNF does not make u turns at dead end roads.

I've read back a few pages and didn't see anything... is this going to be up on the Chrome web store? If not, can you please help a non-computer-savvy person and let us know how to install the file on the latest version of Chrome? Ever since my computer auto-updated, I can't seem to figure out how to manually install any add ons. thanks!
