Yeah, it works with the range of prices that would be a gallon in the US.

I can tap the field to edit, but I can't move the curser to the far right and then delete digits. It's stuck to the far left. I'm using andriod.

Generally speaking, in the past 3 years I've rarely seen it not be 9/10th of a cent, but I still don't know if that should be assumed.


Yes, I've mentioned that to Amit, as well.

Can you not tap on the field again to change it? It worked for me on iOS the other day.

Were you able to enter a reasonable price (i.e. between $0.80 and $2.00), or did you have to be in the gallon range?

When did you last try reporting gas prices?


On my drive home yesterday. I was sat at these lights and tried a bunch of times - "No gas stations nearby"

Edit: I wonder if it's because the "Brand" field is vacant (All 3 are locked so can't add the Brand)

Out of curiosity - every time I've tried to report gas prices, I receive an error that there are no nearby gas stations. Even when I was at an intersection with 3 gas stations within 50 meters of my location!

I've checked and they are all listed as gas station landmarks in WME. Has this feature been disabled again?

However, the functionality is still useless: it automatically completes last digit to be '9' and reports that entered price is not valid. Seems, it uses USA defaults, and assumes gas prices per gallon, while in Canada gas prices per liter and shouldn't be rounded.

In general, Waze developers and community should understand that Canada is not US. All the defaults should be different. For example, default distance (should be in meters, not miles).


I will mention this issue to Amit. I was asked to provide the range of prices and names for the fuel types we have here, as well as the unit of measure. I provided a low range of 0.800 and high of 2.000, and prices are per litre.

I suspect that the implementation is still in progress -- either that, or the gas station you found was somehow mislabelled as being US.

Also, with regards to default distances: that's something you get when you install the app, and virtually everyone in the world would be unimpressed with the miles default (IIRC, only the UK and US use miles), but at least now it's just a one-time setting and it's saved!
