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 ;-)

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 ;-)

Yea Waze has been a bit iffy with getting everything processed in a timely fashion lately. I just finished a 2000+ mile trip, only a small chuck of the places I've been are showing in WME at the moment. A few weeks ago Waze took about a week to display all my drives from a 400 mile trip, it doesn't have any rhyme or reason as to why some of the legs of my journeys show up faster than others, as sometimes it was the shorter trips that are being delayed rather than the longer parts.

Either way, the drives and points do eventually show up, just not always as fast as one would like.

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

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.
