If you put your home address into the Waze editor search and it is near your actual house, then when the next map update happens (see the FAQ), it will work immediately. If your address pin location is incorrectly located, the FAQ has an answer for that too! :)

When I enter my address, or even a nearby intersection, I just get a pin in the downtown area. At least the town is right, Google usually picks the next one over. I can see my road and the nearby road name edits I have done in the map editor but not in the live map. For now I'll try using the coordinates.

Does your address entered into bing maps put the pin in the same (wrong) location?

Yes.

I would read the "address in wrong location" FAQ answer and follow the steps to get the address location moved at the data providers.

Here's a link to the right section of the FAQ: http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/FAQ#What_do_I_do_when_Waze_has_my_destination_or_address_at_the_wrong_location.3F Read that then click on the link that makes up the last two words of the answer.

Private drive, new road; how long?

Postby pzly » Tue Dec 04, 2012 12:58 am

I've added my shared driveway, which is a relatively new road and still not on Google maps, to the Waze map. How long before it becomes available when searching for a destination? Is it possible to put in the intersection of that road with the established road as a destination? It's a rural area and there really isn't much else around to act as a substitute destination for home.
