Waze users addon - Points cointing while not navigating

Postby hoibie » Fri Feb 15, 2013 10:54 am

Hi there,

As you can see in my Subject field, I actually have two idea's.

But before I explain them, I will first introduce myself, as this is my first post!
My name is Bjorn, living in Holland, and since quite a while already a proud Waze member.
Since some months already also starting with the map editing, and slowly filling in my part in this hugh and nice community.

Okay, and now back to the idea's.
As there is a Facebook addon, which adds the users from your facebook account into Waze, its maybe also a great idea to add users from the road into your Waze friendlist. (which you have mett on the road)

The 2nd idea is what I have encountered lately, I was not in need to activate the navigation (was aware how to drive) But I do had opened up Waze for some road/traffic reports. But saw that after a day no point where added to my list.
So I think you only earn points for a route you have entered into Waze, and not if you have just opened up the application Waze. (hope this is a feature whats going to be changed)

Okay, this is it..
My appologizes for my bad English, hope you understand my above statements. Otherwise you may always ask!

Kind regards,
MteQx, on the road known as; Hydra

1) The only way to have friends in Waze is to link your Facebook account to your Waze account& have your Facebook friends link their Waze accounts too. Those Facebook friends with a linked Waze account automatically become your Waze friends.

2) You do not have to be in navigation mode to earn points, just driving with Waze open will earn you driving points. Keep an eye on the last updated date/time in the dashboard as it only updates once a day.
