This makes me want to state a blanket clarification, for the sake of any beginning editors who may read this. My apologies to any who may be bored by it.
Unlike the way it handles Google markers, Waze routing Does Not Care where
portion of a House Number sits. The important routing work is done by the Stop Point. The Number bubble is just a placeholder, visually cuing us humans to which building the Stop Point with that address, ties.
What Waze does
care about, is that the Number has been confirmed by it being handled, even if it's placed right back in the very same spot it started. This movement indicates that a human has reviewed the imported info and says it is correct. Simply highlighting a House Number without moving it does nothing toward increasing its confidence/trust level. (You can verify this by returning after a Save and seeing that the Last Edited by
indicator does not show up after only looking at a given HN.)
Generally, any time I open House Numbers and see all the "soldiers lined up", they're nearly always in the correct order, but rarely in the correct position, indicating that the Stop Points will be in the wrong position also. I will spot check a number of addresses in Street View, or pull up GIS, and proceed to center the Numbers on the buildings they belong with, further adjusting any stop points as needed. Unless, as Alan indicated, that would present issues with buildings not located directly along their street. My pet peeve is that the houses at the end of dead-ends/cul-de-sacs are always left off, and require some sort of followup, but it's all part of the game.
