Hamilton

Postby amartinnz » Mon Dec 20, 2010 9:04 am

Hi people,

Have been a Waze user for a few days, based in Hamilton. There are alot of unknown roads in my area, so I have become an Area Manager for Hamilton so I can help get them sorted.

I notice in a few other forums people complaining about area managers that don't create junctions etc correctly and don't connect roads, so has anyone got some documentation on the best practises?

Also, once I have made changes on Cartouche, how long typically until I see these new roads / changes show up on my Waze device?

kiwilad30 you have done well around Cambridge, did you do a lot of driving, or somehow get some better aerial photos to get everything mapped out?

Which parts of Hamilton were you in that had problems? All the areas I drive in are well and truly tidy, but you might have been driving through areas that I don't go to (like Rototuna etc).

Welcome to the club! Good on you for seeking out the best practices too! Take a look at the wiki and editing tips, both links in my signature! The videos in particular area very useful and worth taking the time to watch!

Good luck!

Hi and Welcome.

There are two issues in maps.
First it can take 2 or 3 days for update -> live
Subsequently you device might not pick up the changes.
It will eventually, but if Live has been updated you can delete the data cache in your phone.
Settings->Data Usage-> Refresh.

Next mission = Rotorua (which looks maybe 50% so far)


I suspect that figure is a bit optimistic

Looks like Rotorua is next on my hit list

I didnt have any problems with waze 2.x - immediately suffered lock-up and restarts with Waze 3.x
It appears to be a common problem with the Galaxy S - it's a work phone, and not due for upgrade for a wee while yet either...


I had the same problem with my motorola defy but with waze version 3.0.2.8 it is now rock solid

The WME is now quite good (not perfect)

If waze can fix a few things I supect it will take off?

ok guys, what's going on in Hamilton

I think I must have done major road mapping in all NZ city's except Hamilton.

I visited Hamilton this weekend and i must says its a nice place..........but what's up with your Waze roads?

Needs a lot of junctions and missing roads fixed.

Hamilton scares me because I don't know the place and I think working with a clean slate is easier
