    As an example, if I want to get to Point B, I enter the address in Waze. I find I am running late, based on the EAT. So I speed up, say 9 over. But because the average is 15 over, I'm arriving LATER than original EAT. Doesn't provide me actionable information. Especially since I do not know what the average speed is along the route.

    Confedyank, "nearest parking" is addressed in another Search issue. When you search for something, it brings up the business and the parking if the name matches, but does not distinguish it from the a matching parking lot. (To Waze, both the business and the parking show in the results.) Right now, a matching lot shows "Parking - " before any important or decision-making information. This suggestion allows the string "Parking - " to be replaced with a meaningful icon that stands out. A little historical investigation, the naming convention was adopted to address the shortfall in how search results were being displayed. Add "Parking -" to make the lot stand out from the business with the same name. Unfortunately, data is lost to the right of the 10 characters which, as you point out, can't be discerned at a glance.

    Agree, oldbeeg. In speaking with others, there are changes afoot in the PLA results in searches. This enhances and does not conflict with what I was told. To Confedyank's note, this improves the "at a glance" readability by putting key info next to a meaningful icon to grab the eye. Just my experience in developing UIs.

    Rather than "Parking - " at the beginning of the Name, a colored icon to set the parking apart from the business is easy to spot. The first words of the name should be the most important information that can be grabbed at a glance (see the naming standards suggestion). Basically, the icon contains a lot of information in itself: It's a parking lot, and it is Public, Restricted, or Private.

    When searching for a venue, Waze should suggest the nearest parking lot that includes the venue name, no matter what Type it is. the example I'm trying to solve is when I search for "Walmart", it directs that the nearest lot is "Parking - Home Depot" 1.2 miles away...only because Home Depot was erroneously created as a Public lot. It should direct me the the nearest lot that includes "Walmart", which is Restricted by definition. So if I search for "Walmart", "Parking - Walmart" should be displayed as the nearest recommended lot.

    Editors then need to know that mall parking (or any lot that is not listed for a particular business) should be "Public".

    When searching for a venue, place a "P" icon before a Parking Lot. That way, a Wazer can select the business or its Lot. Right now, the word "Parking - " precedes the lot name, and information is cut off at the end. By have the app display the "P" icon (blue for Public, Green for Restricted, and Yellow for Private), the editors can put more useful information in the Lot name. This works in conjunction with my suggestion to the naming standards, https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=1698003#p1698003.
