Thanks for finding this another anomaly.
Foreseeing other unknown cases the gray zone has been extended into 1 degree (i.e. 168.24 ± 0.5).
Thank you Arnoniem for the reports.


The first one, still gives a turn left, on the livemap, @168.91 degr.

Did any of the devs pick this one up? Think it might need to be lifted over 169.00?

All giving a uturn instruction. From all directions. :D

Do we know yet whether this prompt takes into account the segment name, the directionality, and whether it's a right-hand or left-hand drive country? I can think of some scenarios where it would be undesirable to have a U-turn instruction, and we should take this up with Waze if this is the case.

Don't know exactly. In the situations I've tested both segments had the same properties. The Uturn prompt was given in both directions, so a left and right uturn.
Do you have a specific construction in mind, where this would cause problems? It's quite an extreme angle, so hard to create that NOT on purpose...

Oh, and i noticed another thing:
On a 2 segment uturn at 170degr+, JAI gives a Best continuation, however the actual instruction is also a uturn:

Together we can find better approximation of a u-turn and/or a gray zone angles.

I just noticed one of my tests showing a "turn left" at the 168.45 angle. It could be the bug that gives a left instead of uturn, but I don't think so, since the livemap gives the same result. Have a look here:

Sure, see the route going through this segment with a u-turn prompt at 168.47 degrees:

ok, that looks different from my experience.
When it was first introduced I set up some different angles where I drive to work. testing in the app showed 169 didnt work, 170 did. Livemap routing did not have uturns enabled then. After that I didn't perfom any tests on angles lower then 170. I guess waze is still "improving" it.

Did you actually navigate and get a uturn prompt at 168.5 degr?
