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:

From another new user, my concern and frustration isn't the points (interesting and fun, but in the end who really cares?) but the fact that most of my drives over 5 km or so have not been processed by Waze, so there are large areas I want to edit and improve that I cannot since the drive(s) thru that area have never been processed. This has occurred with drives up to three weeks old, far longer than the 7 days the Waze status indicates.

The editing feature of Waze is great, but useless if I'm not given access to roads I've driven on multiple times.

The Garmin comment was a joke btw. But yeah Waze really need to sort out points among other issues so new users really *aren't* alienated.
However, I don't think threatening to return to an inferior product is going to make fixing things come any quicker. Trust me many of us have tried ;-)

Id say get a garmin and use waze for fun on the side, and use the garmin for any important trips you need to do.

The maps on the garmin will be a 1000x better than the waze maps, most of the old inner city roads and suburbs aren't even mapped what so ever so once you need a suburb street or side street waze will be useless anyway whereas the garmin will have all those streets ready to go.

The points systems mean very little to me as well, in fact id rather see it dropped as its not really needed in a GPS program.

Points to pounds should be the main thing we do with waze's money. I could buy 10 Nissan GTRs ;-)

Hmm I think I'll be ok. Could be quite fun hearing her screaming turn left, turn right on unmapped roads as she is squashed to her death ;-)
