TTS gives "exit" instead of turn

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Fri Jan 18, 2013 4:40 am

Often-asked. Waze currently says 'exit' for any road which leaves the parent freeway/highway at an angle less than a right or near-right angle.


iOS and Tapatalk have conspired to screw up this post.

Not sure if it's in the wiki. I've personally answered this question many times. Here's a few I found:

Here's an old thread: viewtopic.php?p=122841#p122841
A more recent post: viewtopic.php?p=341309#p341309
Slightly earlier this month: viewtopic.php?p=330697#p330697
Last September: viewtopic.php?p=238712#p238712
In August: viewtopic.php?p=227698#p227698

We've recommended to Waze on several occasions, better criteria for when to say "exit" vs. "keep/stay" vs. "bear" or "slight"

You can get a turn right by using the Y intersection guide and give the angle to the right a geometry node close to the intersection node. If you zoom all the way in when you do it, you'll get the right turn instruction, but on the client, it will be transparent and still look as if it was at the right angle.
