One of the things I'd like to be able to do is have friends/family be able to see my current location on the live map. I thought I'd be able to do this just by going to "live map" and ensuring that the "Wazers" option was marked. But, no luck--I've got Waze running on my device, and it shows that I'm connected and it's got a GPS fix, but I don't show up on the map (nor do any other Waze users).
Is there a way to do this with Waze? Alternatively, can anyone recommend a service that will allow me to do this?
Hi Josh, when you are looking at the live map, you are only going to see the last 10 wazers, if this option is checked at the top of the map. The wazers are close to their locations on the map, but do not show exact location where the wazer is for privacy. You may see yourself on the map amongst the thousands of the wazers out there wazing, but there is no way at this time to see just yourself or friends on the map. I will take that idea back to the team and maybe that can be an added feature for future release.
Waze respects your privacy and will never share your location against your will. However, being a social application that endorses sharing between its community members, there are several ways for you to share details with other members of the community.
By default, your privacy settings are set to show you as anonymous to other wazers. If you send reports, those are sent with your nick name, if you chose to have one. If not, they are sent out anonymously, as well.
You can choose to be displayed by your nickname on the map; this means other wazers will see you with the nick name that you chose.
On the other hand, you can choose to become a 'ghost' which means you will not be displayed at all to other wazers.
At any scenario, other users cannot 'look you up' by your user name, nick name, or any other identifier.

Several times another Wazer appears on my live map while i'm driving but they appear to remain stationary on the map. The other Wazer never moves in the same or opposite direction in real time as I do. I don't know how this happens or if it is a bug that's fixed in 126.96.36.199.
I was just curious if anyone else had seen this before.
