→Area Place size: Updated to reflect that Gas Stations areas do not suppress traffic or MPs as once thought.
Other area places, like University campuses and large shopping malls include more than one component, such as one or more buildings, open areas, roads, and parking. In this case, it is often most useful to Wazers to map to the edges of the property. This will usually show the area and its label in the mobile app even when zoomed out.
[[Places/Gas Station|Gas Stations]] and Parking Lots should be mapped to the edges of the property (or at least to the drivable area); gas station or parking lot must be the first category in the category list.
This tells Waze not to report automated map problems when Wazers travel off-road in these areas. See [[Places/Parking lot]] and [[Places/Gas Station]] for more detail on these Area Places.
