This marker shows the location the user reported the issue from. The user's driven route for a distance before and after the reported location will be shown in bright green. If Waze was in navigation mode at the time of the report, the requested route for a distance before and after the reported location will be shown in purple, with markers along the route with the turn direction given to the user.

This layer is helpful in finding segments which are set using the "Show/Hide closed" link next to the wrong city.

Changing the name of the city for a road is done through the WME interface documented in See [[Update Requests in Waze Map Editor Interface and Controls#Segment Edit Detail|segment edit detail]]. If after fixing the city names you still have incorrect city boundaries, review the article on [[Smudged city#Updating the city layer|Updating the city layerUpdate requests]]for more information.{{clear}}
