Maybe, it's time to activate this feature in Waze which was very useful when I was using it in UK/FR.

Aha - well spotted! I wonder who supplied that information for the spreadsheet.

I'll get on to Waze in a few days (poke me if you don't hear anything) and ask them to enable this. I won't do it immediately because I already have an email full of requests outstanding and I don't want to overwhelm them.

Hi David,

I think I updated the spreadsheet just after reading the article on the net, which I linked as a reference.

An update on the petrol prices feature:

On the assumption that we have 82+% of our petrol stations mapped, I've just sent a message to Waze HQ to ask them to turn on the feature for Ireland. Let's see what happens next.

If it does get turned on, this should be a good incentive to get as many missing petrol stations mapped as possible, and to watch out for incorrectly mapped petrol stations.

Another update on the petrol prices feature:

I've just heard back from Waze HQ that they're going to turn on the gas prices feature for Ireland. I'm not sure how long this takes, but they've said they'll let us know when the process is done.

It wouldn't hurt for all editors to keep an eye out for unmapped or incorrectly mapped petrol stations as part of their routine editing work. Once the feature goes live, I imagine we'll get plenty of URs for missing or wrongly mapped petrol stations, but the more petrol stations we have mapped, the more useful the feature will be for Waze users.

Great news! Thanks!
Is the list of brands up to date? I hope it won't take them too long if we need to update it like a adding GO?

Good question - do you think we're missing (m)any brands?

This thread is from when we compiled the list of brands to submit to Waze, but as you can see it was a while ago, so if we need to add any more brands, we can ask Waze HQ to do that.

I'm not sure how we got from this list to the much shorter list that appears in WME now. I'm not familiar with many of these brands - do you think it would be best to have a more limited list that contains the most popular brands, and then use the existing "Independent Retailer" brand for brands that just have one or two petrol stations?

As far as I remember, petrol stations will show up with their brand logo in Waze client map, that's probably why we have that list I guess. Waze HQ would probably be happier with a shorter list. :)
Anyway, I think a limited list with the most popular/cheapest brands would be wise. ;)

In that case, do you think there's anything important missing from the current list?
