    Yes. CDL drivers need love too!

    This is the only serious lacking for me. When I am ignoring Waze, it is usually because I am in a (long wheel-base) commercial vehicle which cannot make the turns.

    Of course, I use Waze in my personal vehicle (sedan) too, so would need a means of selecting a navigation mode.

    Practically, I would think that allowing for CDL drivers to identify themselves, when operating a long wheelbase vehicle, could then be used to map where we go-- blazing known trails-- which could then be selected for display, perhaps by color coding if a user wants or needs that information.

    Something to consider is that not all CVs are alike. I often drive a bob-tail type vehicle that has the turning radius of a super-tanker-- a tractor trailer will turn inside of it; but if I could see a blazed trail by other CVs, that data would still have meaning.

    I could see the usefulness of a feature on the map editor where CDL drivers could indicate the insufficiency of certain route segments (e.g.,a turn which requires proceeding head-on into opposing traffic being impossible at rush hour, low or narrow clearances due to tree branches or of other vertical or horizontal obstacles, and such).

    None the less, a trail-blazing feature for building such a database would seem most useful.
