I'm just concerned about tiny localities (some are not in your list) but that deserves to be in the database: the locality should be displayed on the map, and someone could look after an address with it (my village e.g. is not in your list, while another small nearby is).
Of course, those I know, I'm able to add in the DB. But I don't know every locality and village in Belgium...
Is there anything planned to deal with that ?

In The Netherlands we have lots of this 'villages', all belong to another one. 'Local people also use the 'local' name, but 'officialy it belongs to another. In Belgium this a bit more complicated. Nothing is official of here

I'm trying to figure out with Waze support, if and how we can reach (new) AM's. Maybe we can send an email with some information and invite them to visit the Belgium forum and WIKI. Problem is, we only want to reach Belgium AM's.

Sure, I've thought to this kind of situation, but what if I told someone "I live in Lincé" and he doesn't know I'm next to Sprimont, he will never find my home.
maantje76 wrote:Keep in mind, Waze uses an external database for routing. Your cityname will only not get a label on the map. If you can find it right now, it should still be that way, when using the suggested citynames.
However, I'm still wondering why Rouvreux is on your list, while mine isn't there (Not that I absolutely want mine, don't care actually, I'm moving in the following months ) but intrigued...

When I search both cities in wikipedia, I found that Lincé is just a village in the Municipality Sprimont.
Rouvreux is also a village in Sprimont, but also a 'deelgemeente'(google translate says 'arrondissement' in french' in Sprimont.
I think that's the difference.
