Unfortunately, in this situation, there is nothing we can change in the map to address your issue. Since it is an app issue you can try the following.  
  
== Major Roads ==
+
1) If that route is a very long distance, sometimes breaking the route into shorter drives can help.
  
=== WV Route Naming ===

2) If you are connecting and disconnecting from Wifi Hotspots while driving, disable WiFi to force Cell Phone Data only.

==== Introduction ====

''The West Virginia Department of Transportation (WVDOT) provides [http://www.transportation.wv.gov/highways/programplanning/gti/GIS/MAPS/Pages/WVMapGISSelect.aspx County Highway Maps] for each of the 55 Counties in West Virginia (WV). Those County Maps provide information on Route Designation for each road WV maintains. The following are the types of roads typically seen on each of the County Maps and how they should be named and typed in the Waze Map. At this time, WV does not have a GIS Functional Classification (FC) Map.
+
  
Any questions, please ask in the WV Google Hangout (WV GHO) or [[West_Virginia#Area_Managers|Private Message]] (PM) one of the State Managers.  
+
3) Make sure you are using the "high accuracy GPS" setting.

WV, at this time, does not have a GIS map that will make decision making as to the proper road type (Street/Primary Street/Minor Highway/Major Highway/Freeway) easy or quick. They do have a list of Federal Aid Roads which includes the roads with a functional classification of minor collector or higher. The issue we have found so far, is that it lists that classification by mile markers. We have no sure way of knowing where that classification starts and ends with any great deal of certainty. It can be done with some experience and common sense. Please work with the State Managers to learn more. You can review the [ftp://gis.transportation.wv.gov/HPMS_Reports/WV_FA_Roads_2015.pdf complete list] here. And Stephen1966 has put together a [https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FUNOb5UqYToEZv-mSK5SVxfyUTZqVqJaJyL_otQlyVw/edit#gid=1099177487 Google Sheet] that translates the list into which roads the classification applies to. This is why it's important to have the correct road designation in either the primary or alternate name in order to find a particular road and apply the correct functional classification to it. ''Note that some roads are listed as more than once; this means that they can be for example mH for part and MH for part and PS for part. Please ask in the GHO for more help if you find examples of this.''
+
 
+
==== NOTES ====
+
 
+
* Within City Limits, most roads should have a name; use that instead of the Route Designation and put the Route Designation as the Alt Name. Consult County GIS sources or Street View.
+
* All County Roads do have a name; you will need to find it using Street View or County GIS sources. If you cannot find it, then use the Road Designation as the Primary.
+
* All FANS Roads are within City Limits. Only put a FANS Designation (and always as Alt Name) if FC upgrades that segment to PS or higher.
+
* If the Primary Name includes a "city", then any alternate names must include the same city and vice-versa. 
+
* Do not deviate from the road type unless the correct Functional Classification has been applied. Doing so can and will create issues with routing.

You will need to delete this address from your history/favorites/home/work location and search for it again once it updates otherwise you may be sent to the wrong coordinates. Thanks!

"All Is Well",

"My test routes show it updated and routes correctly. You will need to remove this address from your history/favorites and re-search. Otherwise you may routed to incorrect coordinates. If you continue to have issues, please submit a new report. Thanks and have a great day!
