I agree. Since most signs are uppercase, in Waze we would typically switch this to initial caps.

Today I sent a message to the Waze team on that specific issue. I will report back what they say relative to this issue. If anyone has any current routing issues they know about or can find any forum threads showing this is still a problem then let us know and we can add it to the Wiki best practices.

There are definitely threads about issues with routing related to segments which shared the same endpoints. And this has nothing to do with Cartouche, as it doesn't do routing, so why is that even relevant to the discussion? The issue with the routing server has existed since the days of Cartouche. I doubt Waze will officially have much to say about it because they've never properly responded to the threads displaying the issue.

Don't forget this is also the reason why WME does not allow the starting junction to split a segment if the end junction is on the same segment. It's been built into WME since the very beginning to dissuade this type of loop from being created.

Thanks Alan, that's all I needed to know. I don't always have the time to read all of the threads and posts, that's why I started out with the comment that it might have been brought up before.

Discovered I believe I was wrong. It got sent to me via PM. He provided two links to threads about 2-part/3-part loops.

Emmons Circle needs to be split into two segments. No two segments should have the same end points. It causes all sorts of routing problems, and misidentification of the actual route requested on URs, etc. It also causes issues with inability to locate the correct location when starting on that type of road.

This has been well documented in a few different forum discussions, which the Validator author provided links to earlier in this thread.

My experience has been that you can't change the case of a city name. You can try, but when the map refreshes, it returns to the original case.

There's a form for that. :)

There was a US discussion in the last couple of months about whether there are proper places to not have first letter upper case on real streets. I don't remember the thread or the outcome at this time, but this needs examination. Ramps starting with "to" should definitely be an exception for this check, at least in the US.

WME beta had the 2-way change built-in and the roundabout issue has also been noted in the beta feedback.

Sorry, off-topic, but to finish this up I think, for example: When toll road avoidance was first activated. There are many interstate bridges mapped properly as two 1-way segments, with there being a toll applied to only one direction of the bridge. Waze would route drivers backwards along the non-tolled segments. :roll:

SuperDave1426 wrote:That's a good trick - how can it route you the wrong way through a roundabout, when a roundabout is a group of one-way segments?

Going the wrong way on a 1-way is just another penalty to the Waze routing model. It happens much less often now, but it can happen.
