Limitations: clarified what alternate routes do
=== Multiple ===
[[File:MEPRoute.jpg|right|200px]][[File:MEPCard.jpg|right|200px]]{{Mbox|type=important|text={{As of|May June 2019}} multiple entry points can be added to area places. However, they are not used in the production app. Production users are routed only to the originally created entry point.}} Multiple entry points can be added to area places only. When navigating to a place with multiple entry points, the Waze app brings users to ''whichever entry point provides the optimal route'', which is often but not necessarily the closest entry point to the user. The entry point being used is shown in the app on a card as part of the route summary.
The end flag (black & white checkered pin at the end of a route) and the location flag (red pin displayed in the place information tab in the app) always display at the first entry point that was created, whether or not it has the Main box checked. It is also the location used in routing during situations for which multiple entry points are not yet enabled (see [[#Limitations|below]]). Checking the Main box on a different entry point moves it to the top of the list but has no known effect in the app.
Up to 20 entry points can be added for each area place.
{{As of|May June 2019}}, a specific entry points point cannot be chosen, whether main or alternate, and multiple otherwise; only the optimal entry point for navigation is used. Multiple entry points are also do not used work correctly in the following situations:
* Add a stop
* Alternate routes (The 2nd or 3rd alternative may lead to a different entry point)
* Plan a drive
In the above situations, * Alternate routesThe first entry point to be created (whether or not it is set as the main always used when adding a stop and planning a drive. A different entry point) is may be used for navigationin manually or automatically recalculated alternate routes, and but its name is not shown. Further development is planned, including a drop-down menu for users to choose to be navigated to a particular entry point of a place.
