Area map search?

Postby SUPLIZE » Sat May 19, 2018 12:15 am

Is there a way do a search for something like all the “Wal-marts” around me and have it show them all on the map at once instead of just showing them in the list view?

Under your personal account settings "My Waze", between "Mood" and "Scoreboard" you should see "My stores", it lets you find your favorite brands around you faster or figure out if any are present on or around the route you've set if you already began navigation.

I use it for a local brand, but it only works with stores who have ads running on Waze, those who don't cannot be added to this list.
I doubt that will change as otherwise the ads team would lose the ability to add this to their list of reasons why brands should not only add their stores to the Waze map but also run ads on their platform. It's basically a sales argument at this point.


Regarding map view for any normal search, this is already possible.
When you search for a location, the first list you see under the search bar is the quick-results list. However if you hit the blue "Search" button to validate your search, a new view will be displayed with a list at the bottom and a map view at the top. You can click the map view to make it full-screen.

For example if I search for "Coop" (local supermarket where I live):
