Waze is one of the more brilliant apps out there, effectively wielding the power of shared information to improve individual situations. In the old days, motorists used to flash their headlights at oncoming traffic to warn them of upcoming speed traps; it was easy and conveyed useful information. With Waze

We wish to inform the community that a new searched mechanism has been enabled for Malaysia.

As you all know, the client (app) depends on 3rd party search engine such as Google and if the road name is not found in Google maps, Waze will not display the search results.

Now the search results will display Waze database for those street names that cannot be searched previously.

Attached is the picture for your reference and "Lorong Gelang 1E" is used as a test search as currently Google maps do not have the street name yet.

Please take note that the auto drop down results info is still coming from Google and you will have to click search to get the Waze database results.

Currently wild card search is not enabled yet but it is better than cannot search for that new road name.

On behalf of WazeMY we would like to thank Waze for enabling this feature for Malaysia.

About this community

This group is to create greater awareness for Waze, the free social GPS turn-by-turn navigation software for iOS, Blackberry, Android and Symbian phones. Malaysia already has 1.18 million users as of 21/12/2012. This group will keep you up-to-date with latest developments on Waze, be it new version, capabilities and map development. Please spread the word about the advantages of Waze vs regular GPS tools like Garmin and TomTom, which besides price (Waze is free), worldwide map availability (Waze works all around the world) is also in it's realtime traffic updates which is being done in the background whilst you're driving. All content on Waze maps is created by users (Wazers) themselves, please also acknowledge their work. To download the software direct your mobile directly to: http://m.waze.com Please be reminded that this group is about Waze, the free social GPS application. Advertisement of any kind will be removed immediately and person posting will be kicked out. Just happened again to someone. OT postings will be checked if there is a relevance and maybe deleted as well but no kick for poster (unless it's happening repeatedly) Thanks for all the new people joining our Google+ community "Waze in Malaysia". Some quick points to get you started: 1) Please help promote Waze by showing it to your friends and relatives. Show them how easy it is to use and what the benefits are (realtime traffic updates, turn-by-turn navigation, warning of police and JPJ roadblocks). Invite your friends to this community 2) Always turn Waze on when you drive! This not only ensures you will know about accidents, road blocks and jams up front but it also has the benefit that the road situation is updated with your data (anonymous!). If you can, enter WORK and HOME location so Waze is learning automatically your destinations and when you travel there. If you enter a destination (address or POI through Bing, Google Maps or Foursquare) Waze will guide you around traffic situations if it's faster, even if you think you drive home whilst sleeping it will still know traffic better than you (think accidents etc.) 3) Read our FAQ about the most common questions about Waze. If you don't find your question in there, please ask (so we answer and add it): https://plus.google.com/u/0/114109562739739750572/posts/UMkf5owojFD 4) If you're interested in helping out improve the map quality, check out the following 5 videos I've done so far explaining how easy it is using the editor: How to learn map editing on Waze Part 1 - Geometry of a road http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAybwyz0aZ8 Part 2 - find correct street and city names easily http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQr6Q_UejJQ Part 3 - correct road classification (when to use primary road and when to use a minor highway eg) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nw0FI4tY0LU Part 4 - solving map problems (wrong junction, routing not good) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyabC4KaKGU Part 5 - deleting hidden roads http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHhoMdMuIdA 5) Check out how to determine which city name to use (no Taman names, no state added): https://plus.google.com/u/0/114109562739739750572/posts/8NhtNCpPwuZ 7) Road classification is important too, eg all Exxxx are either Freeways or Major Highways: https://plus.google.com/u/0/114109562739739750572/posts/f2GWamVaUXs 8) If you have trouble with battery draining by using Waze, check out this document to find out how to avoid this: https://plus.google.com/u/0/114109562739739750572/posts/Vgs9p28GSws 9) Report only fixed speed/red light cameras. If you see police with speed gun or JPJ roadblock, report it as police and use comment field. Many thanks in advance, always safe drive, Andreas Country Manager Malaysia, Brunei and Singapore - Working for free to improve Waze Rank No 1 in Malaysia

On the straight road, we normally didn't have voice prompt for it.
Refer to the photo, normally when we are driving slow, we will drive at the slow lane.
As show on the photo, for the Exit Road, we will have a Keep or Exit prompt for it, but for the straight road we didn't have any prompt to alert us.

As a Wazer, when we are driving on the slow lane and didn't heard any prompt, we will assume we are going straight, but actually the slow lane is going to difference direction. Due to no prompt at this intersection, it cause the Wazer (including me) wrongly take the Exit/Keep Left lane instead of going straight. When we found out we are on the wrong lane, it been too late for us to change the lane. During attending UR also found that most of the UR reporter also facing this issue.

May I suggest we implementing the Keep Right / Keep Left prompt for this type of intersection.

Keep Left/Right should be ok with earlier prompt (Earlier exit).

Bowtie should be preferable. It's will induce KR/KL with current design.

Btw, Uturn is allowed now at the junction? Been a while since last time driving there.
