    There needs to be _some_ way for Waze to proceed when GPS goes away. A couple years ago, when I had a phone without GPS, another free nav service would present turn instructions one at a time, and the driver would click "next" (or "back") as he progresses. Waze could do exactly the same thing and solve the client problem.

    On the route analysis side, knowing that a road segment is a tunnel could prompt Waze to calculate average speed of tunnel segments.

    I also like the "dead-reckoning" idea, for phones so equipped.

    I posted a separate Uservoice suggestion for a similar purpose here: http://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59225-cartouche-map-editor-and-waze-com-website/suggestions/1242429-view-a-range-of-levels-in-roads-layer

    The idea is to tell Cartouche which road layers to display, to make it easier to see surface roads & tunnels that are covered by overpasses.

    IMO the new editor makes this enhancement much less critical, so I'm moving my vote elsewhere.

    Cartouche had this feature when I joined last Fall (2010), then lost it again in the subsequent update. I don't like having to "roll the dice" now, or having to go back and fix it half the time.

    http://www.waze.com/cartouche/#?zoom=6&lat=42.34647&lon=-71.05945&layers=BTFTFFFFFFFFFFFFFFTTTT

    It would probably encourage more people to -use- road levels too...

    The problem is with the editor: as fvwazing explained, editing multiple roads of mixed types resets them all to "street", and I believe it loses all the Alt street names. Until those bugs are fixed, all the "self security" in the world makes no difference.

    Once they get that straightened out, I'm fully in support of being able to select all roads in an area.

    harling commented  · 

    FWIW, once you select two road segments, you can click on "select all roads in between", which at least might help if you need to select multiple segments of a single road. 'fvwazing' is right though, until editing multiple roads on a large scale is no longer hazardous, we're better off -not- having this mass-selection capability.

    When a path (e.g., a ramp) is closed due to construction, why not set a turn restriction, or disconnect the segment from the junction, to prevent routing through it? When the ramp opens again, people will start using it, Waze will notice, and re-connect the segments. No?

    "Avoid toll roads" ranks right up there with "avoid highways", "minimize turns", and "fastest vs. shortest".

    Wouldn't turning on the "GPS Points" layer give you a good indication?

    Even in short tunnels (never mind the Big Dig), it's easy to lose both GPS and data service. So if a road section were designated "tunnel", the Waze client would know not to panic, and the server would know not to mangle things too badly when the confused data transmission resumes.

    I would use a "walk mode" to map walking trails, which in my area are well away from any roads. I agree that it would also be useful to be able to walk/bike to record house numbers, without messing up speed measurements & connectivity on existing roads.
