Did you enter city or at least state?

Yes and no. Yes, you input the value, but it relies exclusively on GPS location for the actual destination. With Waze internal addressing they are working on getting the stop point to be able to be located on any segment. I've got dozens maybe hundreds of addresses where the actual location is on a street named other than that in the address.

Bing doesn't give any results. Only Waze and Google and both point to the wrong location. I am using Waze for android.

Check the address result on maps.bing.com. Of course it doesn't show any results in the app. It never does. The address results are always in the Waze tab.

Does Waze use the Google engine for all Italian users just now (14 August 2013)?

When the international server will have the same search mechanism of the North American server?

I guess it works differently on the IOS version you're using.

I'm using the Androïd version, and there search *always* give focus to the "waze" tab, I've to manually switch to another tab after that.

That will be a nice change. I tried to find something this weekend and the Bing results were atrocious!

I am interested to know this also. If Google returns a result it is automatically 'the best'?
