I live in Dubai, UAE and I'm using Osmand+ for rounting.

I'd like to focus on improving the routing experience in Dubai/UAE.

My best practices

I'll try to list the tags I use the most including additional tags


The biggest challenge I see are the many lanes in UAE, often 4 and more.

Living areas

The missing of addresses used in other countries makes is difficult to map residential areas. Often street and area names are not clear - not thinking of house numbers at all.
