Are you a new Wazer or editor?

Editing Waze maps is easy. But before you start contributing to the Waze Wiki we recommend that you have a good understanding and experience of Waze and its forums. Why? Because some details of Waze can be understood only if you have Waze knowledge and experience.

If you are an experienced Wazer (e.g., a Wazer with more than 25,000 map updates, 2,500 km (1,500 miles) driven with Waze, 60,000 Waze Points, and 100 Forum Posts), then your help is most welcome to make the Waze Wiki better for new editors.

Finally, before you make your first changes, please review the Wiki Editing Etiquette and Wiki Manual of Style (Style Guide).
