I've just responded to a UR from a large estate. The Google pin is on the main house, as usual. But the driveway gate is NOT located at the closest part of the address street. It's much further away.
Naturally, Waze+Google positioning routes this reporter to the part of the street closest to the house, bypassing the gate by a long shot.
I don't plan to move the Google pin because I'd have to move it quite far from the house and that's not how Google likes to do things. I also don't want to add a private driveway because it will mess up routing for the neighbor.
So -- perfect application for a Waze House Number! I adjusted the house number as per instructions and moved the stop point to the driveway gate. I made sure to tweak a bit of road nearby to wake up a tile change. But, how does Waze deal with an old Google position and a new Waze house number?
- Is it necessary to remove the address from the nav list and favorites under these conditions, when the Google pin has not changed but is rather being superseded entirely?
- If the reporter removes the address from the nav list and favorites, then searches for the address again, are they guaranteed to get the Waze House Number provided it's been "touched" and the tiles have updated?
- If so, does the Google position then become completely unused by and irrelevant to Waze (except for users who haven't cleared the stale address from cache)?
I'm guessing yes, yes, and yes...
