I've only recently found the place, so still feeling my way around, but if someone can tell me what needs doing, I'll see what i can do!
The biggest issue is that people are recording roads using their phones but these are not being updated and entered into waze.
The easyest way to find this is to enable the "no name roads" layer and switch off aerial photos (that slows down redrawing)
Then look around for orange lines.
You don't have to be an Area Manager for the area you live in.
Example of North Island towns with very little coverage
Area needing updates..
Napier, Hastings. Havelock North
Not all areas have aerial photos, most do though.
Some areas are "known bad" and need a local to fix them.
SH20 manukau, wiri station Rd, Lambie Drive area Etc
Lower Hutt new motorway on ramp.
Please, any road you make, set it to "locked"
There is lots of good AM documentation on the waze site.
I'm happy to help directly firstname.lastname@example.org
