They are quite popular in the US... Some grocery stores even have them where you earn gas discounts by buying your groceries - both at the Supermarket Branded Gas Station and other big name partner Gas Stations

Gas prices feature: everything you need to know

Postby fvwazing » Mon Nov 19, 2012 1:12 am

So... would its assumed popularity justify an extra field in settings, an extra calculation in fuelpricing (and another complication, another source of usererrors at that)?

[edit]
Aaargh! I just realize that there will not be ONE bonuscard involved but MANY. 5c here, 8c there. Ugh. Guess my answer to my own question.

I wasn't saying that we should add it to the app... Waze can't do everything... What would Waze do when I get a free soda with fillup?

Why do we have only one Gas station operator Icon on map and it is not even a gas station but office of that Operator?

Please add a possibility to display ALL Gas stations as icons like Police, Car crash, traffic jam, other wazers, etc.

Seems more like paid ad, not Gas Station.

How will the map look if more paid ads appear simultaneously? Will we be able to disable this or somehow limit? I am afraid that map will be unusable and laggy.

There is a gas station near me that is in the long location on the map. I believe that its GPS coordinates were calculated when the data was imported, and incorrect house numbers led to it being incorrect in the Waze gas station database.

I have since fixed the house numbers, but it still shows up in the old, incorrect location. I am guessing that I either have to wait for it to be updated or that new editing feature to be added for the US.

In the US, we have no currently ability to effect gas station adds or changes. We hope someday... but because Waze and a 3rd party are "tied" together, I am unsure how they may go about giving us this ability.

We've been told that no more than 3 paid ads will appear on the screen at once to avoid clutter.
