Conditions for application
== Conditions for application ==
When Waze gives navigation instructions to "turn", "exit", or "keep" onto an unnamed segment, it will look ahead on the recommended route for a road name that it can use. If there is a named segment {{u|further along your the recommended route}}, it will use (inherit) that name in the instruction. ''Named segments connected to the unnamed segment which are not part of your provided route, are not relevant.''
The inherited name is only used in the displayed and spoken instruction prompts, it does not affect the actual name of the segment. Unnamed segemnts are often used to control instructions on feeder ramps and at grade connectors (AGCs). Please be sure to understand all the ways in which unnamed segments can affect navigation instructions before adding names to unnamed segments or removing them from named segments.
This '''always works''' for {{Freeway|Freeways}} and {{Ramp|Ramps}}.
This '''never''' works for {{Parking Lot Road|Parking Lot Roads}}, {{As of|October 2018}}
{{As of|October 2018}}, on On all other road types (any road type which is '''not''' a Freeway, Ramp, or Parking Lot Road), this feature only works if:
# The combined length of the consecutive unnamed segments is shorter than 400 meters (1,312 feet), <br />'''AND'''
# There are 3 or fewer unnamed segments in a row.
To explain the above conditions from other perspectives:
# If the consecutive unnamed {{Street|Local Street}}, {{Primary Street|Primary Street}}, {{Minor Highway|Minor Highway}}, {{Major Highway|Major Highway}}, or {{Private Road|Private Road}} segments measured together are longer than 400 m (1,312 ft), or if there are 4 or more unnamed segments in a row, Waze will '''not''' show or speak a name in the instructions.
# There is never name inheritence inheritance for unnamed {{Parking Lot Road|Parking Lot Road}} segments.  
== Side effects ==
* Roads which really don't have a name, may give confusing instructions if they meet the conditions for road name Inheritanceinheritance. These roads may need to be mapped carefully in WME to avoid Waze giving confusing instructions to drivers to turn onto them using a name from further along their route. Some of the examples provided show this behavior. Discuss these cases with senior editors when they arise, to decide the best way to map them.* Road name Inheritance inheritance can be very useful for roads which do have the same name, specifically for freeway and highway ramp names. However, in some cases this can cause issues and create a false [[best continuation]] instruction. Always be cautious and test the map setup to ensure it produces the expected results.
