And that's exactly what I meant. Unless your stop is at the very end of that dead-end, there's no reason to continue to the end of the dead-end to turn around.

I submitted the info via a form a couple of weeks ago.

"Turn around when safe" or something similar is the best solution to any situation like this, whether it's dead-end U-turns or the need to make a U-turn on an unsplit road. That's how every other GPS and navigation app does it, and it works fine.

The UK Champs asked Waze to run a job a few months ago which disabled every dead end U-Turn in the UK. It soon became evident that (misguided) users would enable them again and re-introduce the routing errors that come with them since the Waze client has no U-Turn instruction. This is one of the reasons (if not the main reason) behind the disabling of U-Turns on a dead end node in WME.



The situation in the UK is unique, and we did disable U-turns there following the community's request. For other countries, U-turns should be left as they are, and we intend to enable them in the future.

Thanks,

Noam

Thanks Noam, that adds a lot of clarity to the situation. :)

Is there any updates being done now for WME? WME allows me to save but it seems that the edit is not saved.

I'm having the same problem. Was just looking for a place to ask the same question. I'm guessing it's a ROW server issue.

Did anyone else notice that sometimes when updating segment properties, WME sets elevation to null (blank field)? I haven't been able to find out how exactly to reproduce this, maybe there's a problem in connection with the toolbox, the validator or the junction node fixer.

Did anyone else notice this?

EDIT: Disabling Junction Node Fixer (Tampermonkey version) seems to fix the issue.

This was brought up a while back. The elevation is not actually changed to null -- if you save and reload, you'll see it still has the correct value.

GPS points are becoming old in Latvia. Some places are not updated for a year or two... Where can we request update for GPS points layer?
