I really want to be a good map editor and follow the rules but if these people are going to arbitrarily lock me out of the places I go then it just isn't worth it.


Are you the scott something or other that I've seen popping up occasionally in Pittsburgh? If so I'm locking everything I edit that I'm pretty sure is right, not arbitrarily, but due to another new editor who has a lot of free time on his hands and has undone literally days of work I've done.


You should not be locking everything you touch, that was the old locking policy. The current locking policy is to only lock high-value roads. If there is an editor intentionally creating problems, you can try to reach out to them via PM here in the forums or any of the Waze Champs/Country Managers (level 4 editors) can help you out.

I used the editor a month ago in areas near my house and the map is now accurate there. I tried again a few days ago to edit these recent changes and I cannot edit anything. I am locked out of the whole map.


1) Are you working on the correct Server?
2) If you are, please provide a Permalink to the area & someone can try to figure out what the issue is. Please select one (or a few) of the segments you are trying to edit before creating the permalink.

Are those roads now locked by a higher level editor? or have you not driven those areas in the last 3 months?

You have access to areas you drive for three months after your last time through the area.

HI Guys. I am also missing around 1200 km of newly driven roads. About a year ago I had to reinstal my cellphone and after reinstaling the Waze app, a few drives, loging in and driving some more, I noticed that I lost my entire drive to Dubrovnik in Croatia, and also a lot of roads already driven in Slovenia are missing. And there is also my trip towards Hungary that is missing as well. Now I am not able to fix issues and edit map around these lost areas.

How can I get them back? Can anyone please help?
Thak You

A drive you took today will not likely expand your area immediately. The processing and posting of the drive is, if I am not mistaken, a separate process which happens prior to the granting of additional area. I could be wrong about this, but I would say it could still take a day or two to see your expanded area.

OP was New Jersey, US.

I would submit a ticket from the Quick Help box/forum (send email) on the Support page. I am not 100% certain that "drive processing" is the same process which enabled the editable areas. There is a "merger process" but I am not sure if that's the same thing as the "drive processing" phrase I have used. The code and work done to analyze drives is very complex and may take longer than I'm thinking to update editable areas.

Post back here any answer you get from Waze!
