Please note that you do need a data connection at the end of your drive for it to upload to Waze.

Do you leave your client running?

If you have data connection when you shut down Waze it should upload before it actually exits. If it doesn't have a data connection there will be an icon and msg at the top of the screen.

If it looks strange, or I used bad grammar or misspelled anything, it's my phone's fault.

I haven't seen a clear answer to this question. I've read that you must leave Waze running to get your points and alerts. Is this:

a) With the actual program running with the map displayed, or can it also be

b) With the actual program not displaying (such as returning to the home screen or accessing another app or making a phone call) but with the Waze icon displaying in the notification bar?

If (b) does not count as the app Waze is running, what is the purpose of putting the icon up in the notification area if Waze isn't actually running, and (?) recording points?
