Forms Discussion History

The following links are entry forms used to contact Waze or Champs for help regarding specific issues or requests.

NOTE: These forms should be used only for assistance pertaining to the specific issue or request of the entry form. If you need assistance with any issue that one of the forms here can not resolve, you can seek help in the Forum.

If you find incorrect advertisement pins in the app for the location, name, or other details, they must be fixed by Waze staff. As of 2017, you have three options;

  • If the advertisement is associated with a locked Waze Place, make the adjustments to the place in WME (this will become a PUR regardless of your rank), and the Waze staff team will review it.
  • If the advertisement is not associated with a locked Waze Place, submit the Misplaced ad pins form. The Waze team monitors this so they can fix it or report it to advertisers.
  • If neither of the previous options resolve the issue in a reasonable amount of time, contact a Champ or your Regional Coordinator who can contact staff directly.

Waze for Cities Information (formerly Connected Citizens Program)

Waze for Cities Information and Application (formerly Connected Citizens Program)
The Waze Connected Citizens program brings cities and citizens together to answer the questions “What’s happening, and where?” We exchange publicly available incident and road closure reports, enabling our government partners to respond more immediately to accidents and congestion on their roads. In turn, we aggregate our partners' data on the Waze platform, resulting in one of the most succinct, thorough overviews of current road conditions today.

With the addition of city data, Wazers will be even safer on the roads and more knowledgeable about construction, marathons, floods or anything else that can cause delays. And for our government partners, publicly-available Waze data is a powerful tool to build more efficient cities. Real-time information from drivers is essential; no one knows more about what's happening in a city than the people who live there. In an era with smart phones, smart cars and smart homes, isn't it about time we start building smarter cities?

Formal Mentoring in the USA is a one-on-one interaction between a Mentee and Mentor with specific objectives of increasing skill, editor level, and Waze Community participation. It entails a specific Mentee-Mentor pair who agree upon an objective, start, and end, this process needs a bit more coordination. It also requires commitment from both the Mentee and Mentor to complete the objective.

Map Offsets in the Editor

At one time, map offsets could be reported on a form that was sent to Google to be reviewed. This is a condition where the WME aerial images were not well aligned with the existing roads. That form is no longer in use based on this forum post.

Places outdated in Google appearing in Waze

Places outdated in Google appearing in Waze Search Results
There is an ongoing issue regarding ‘Places’. In certain instances, search results display ‘Places’ that no longer exist. While these ‘Places’ do not exist on the Waze map any more, they are still in Google’s database. This causes search errors in countries where you get Google's results by default. We would like to fix this. Please submit examples of this issue to us using this form and we will do our best to correct it.
