Lane Guidance

While using Waze on highways lately, I have begun to think that having the ability to see what lane becomes the off ramp would be great, especially in complex city interchanges.

        FIRST low quality devices mist be prevented from submitting location data. GNSS with error above 7 meter must be discarded

        Cheap phone owners can buy usb- or Bluetooth external GNSS if they want to contribute.

        This is an overdue feature for Waze. Waze seems to be giving fewer directions now than a year/several months ago, or that may just be my incorrect impression of it, so this is even more necessary now. (I think I used to get more "stay to the left ahead to continue on X highway" directions, and now I just find myself at a fork in the road in the wrong lane with no warning from Waze.) Long story short, I'm using Google maps much more than Waze now.

        Needs sorting, many a wrong turn due to poor mapping of lane change

        This is something Google Maps has and Google owns Waze so can't Waze copy the code directly from Google?

        I missed ALOT of turns and intersection because i did not know what lane to take (or did not change lanes in time..)...
        also in my country there's those overly complicated multiple exits (from highway) at the same place - lane guidance is crucial here...

        The voice guidance isn't always very useful. The road divided into 3, and the message indicated something different that what the map showed

        Maybe a extra variable for each road:
        Number of Lanes : 2
        would be a good idea and a option, were you can set:
        off ramp lanes right :1
        off ramp lanes left : 0
