Incorrect routing to addresses matching Alternative Street names. This issue occurs when closeby another street exists with the same name as the alternative name.



Destination IJzerlaan 38, Antwerpen

The main road is N1-IJzerlaan, alternative name IJzerlaan.
North of the canal lies a street with the name IJzerlaan.

If the entered destination of a house number or Residential Place lies on the main road, the app will indicate the endpoint in a correctly but the routing leads to the road named IJzerlaan, north of the canal.


This issue can be prevented by adding a RPP with a “Entry-/exit- point”.

Without the Entry/exit point the routing passes the destination, while with the Entry/exit point the routing delivers the Waze at the correct location.
