      • Netherlands, afslag 17 is 3 voudig, naar Leeuwarden zuid/Goutum blijft N32, dat staat nu aangegeven als naar Drachten, maar dan kom je er ni

        afslag 17 Leeuwarden ZUId, is N32; Drachten is N31, Harlingen is ook N31. Nu staat ook Leeuwarden zuid naar Drachten aangegeven, dat is niet correct. Het kaartje is wel goed.

        • Predictive driving

          Predictive Driving: I amazing the Map Creators could not actually add characteristics to the roads, like Fords, Speed Bumps, Traffic Lights, Speed Camera areas, Pedestrian Crosswalks, etc.

          Maps for GPS and Cell Phones should be tools of warnings and predicting what is ahead not just to turn left or right to reach a place....

            • editing cities names

              I think we should be able to edit cities names. Some cities here in Oman are some times in the wrong location and sometimes are missing.
              How we can provide evidence about the name and location of the city to be accepted by HereMaps.

                Members with many approved edits should not need to be checked for months.. I get that this needs to be done to new members, but not guys with hundreds of good edits. The approval process must be speeded up. Please let us update the map. Use the community!

                • Add possibility to check whether crossing roads intersect or there is an over/underpass

                  Currently when drawing a new road across an existing one there is a possibility choose the type of the crossing (intersection/overpass/underpass). However, I can't find a way to change this type after drawing the road nor even verifying what's the type of the crossing on previously drawn roads.

                  Therefore I'm asking for a possibility to check the type of the crossing in Map Creator, and maybe even ability to change it, so that it's not required to draw a new road in case of incorrect crossing type.

                  (If this feature already exist, sorry to bother you all, I just can't…

                  • Give feedback when modifications are accepted or rejected

                    It would be nice to get some feedback whenever a modification I do is either accepted or rejected (possibly aggregated in a single email, not one email per mod). There is the 'Watchlist' but I think it shows only accepted features I think?

                      • Improve intersection selection

                        If I draw a new road that connects to an existing road, and later crosses that same road as over- or underpass, MapCreator just asks for the intersection type of the starting point. If I select 'Connects to other road', all other crossings are turned into 'real' intersections that can't be turned into an over- or underpass.

                        • Single Track Roads - Scotland and other parts of UK

                          Many roads in rural Scotland and other parts of the UK are single track - one single width road for both directions. At present, roads can only be listed down to one lane in each direction. Such roads require drivers to negotiate and wait to allow other traffic to pass sometimes with marked passing places. This lowers the average speeds. In Scotland this can affect major trunk roads (A roads), minor roads (B roads), country lanes and other access roads. I suggest you need to add a new category of single track roads.

                          • When map gets updated

                            I wonder when the updates from Map Creator actually will be implimented in the map? I have many approved edits finally, but when will I get to see them in the maps?

                            Not really an idea, but I didn't know where else to post it.

                            And why can't I approve other peoples edits? I don't have that feature now. I'm from Norway if that makes a difference.

                            Thank you!

                              • Create a Keyboard Shortcut for "Add house number" to eliminate having to click "N°" for each number.

                                All this clicking around is unnecessary. I'd also like to not have to click in the text box each time after I've already clicked "N°". I could add addresses a lot faster if I could simply hit N on my keyboard, place it on the map, and immediately type a number.

                                    Can you put a field to the streets, where you can past the max. clearance in tunnels or under brigdes? It would be very nice for trucks or big cars to see this at the navigation-system.

                                    • Switch GPX tracks to be foreground/background of the map data

                                      It would be nice to have the ability to be able to switch the GPX tracks to show in the foreground of the map data, rather than only in the background.

                                      Yes the background placement is great to see where map data needs to be updated. Foreground though also shows how much our GPS unit may or may not be in calibration.
