Agree that some adjustment to the algorithm is needed. We've been getting the same complaints about being directed the long way around, frequently to avoid a left turn.

Problem is, sometimes Waze is right, but sometimes the difference would be so minor that it's not worth the headache of doing all the extra turns, etc. Glad to hear they're contemplating some threshold, like a 30-second difference, before routing people people in some odd way.

Not an issue since the left turn here is allowed and the livemap shows that the router is sending people that way instead ;)

That said, if the left turn lane was un-named, it should give a "stay to the left at Rangewood Dr" direction at the start of the left turn lane which may be enough without a follow-on "turn" instruction. Oh, and that left turn lane should be typed as Primary as well.
