Maybe I Should Go Back to Garmin?

Postby I-Hate-Traffic » Fri Oct 19, 2012 1:08 pm

Guys - Your System Isn't Working. It used to work fine but no more! I started keeping a spread sheet because I knew I was missing points.

Waze claims problems were fixed up to 10-14 but I drove 230+ miles the week of 10-8 and I was only credited for 57 miles.

This week I'm being credited about 1 mile for every 5 I'm driving.

Waze used to be fun but I'm thinking of going back to Garmin.

Snarky comments aside,

points accumulation is hardly the primary reason for using Waze, wouldn't you agree?

Or perhaps not if you created a spreadsheet for the sole purpose of tracking them. :ugeek:

So you are telling me that points mean more to you than accurate up to date maps that you don't have to pay for? Even google doesn't have roads drawn in some places that Waze does, and google has gone social on their maps too. Why would you pay $70 every six months for new maps that may or may not be as accurate as Waze is or can be? Even at it's worse Waze maps are 2 months old.

I doubt the points are lost. More likely, some of your drives have not been processed yet--especially if they are long drives.

The points are just an incentive to get involved with the Waze community and improve things, not the main reason to use the app.

A general remark, not directed at the most recent poster to this thread, or to anyone in particular:

I don't see any reason to respond to posts like this as though they were personal affronts. The OP is frustrated about points not being posted, and probably doesn't understand the processing (and delay therefrom) that has to take place before driving points are logged. Once the next revision of the WME is released, we will all be able to see when our drives are recorded, and people will have some more insight into how the whole thing works; until then, most new Wazers are in the dark, which can be frustrating. There's no need to alienate anyone over that.
