Finally, I see the ability to report gas prices. 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'm pretty sure it's been talked about in passing in other threads.

I'll contact Amit and find out what the holdup is. We shouldn't expect a response until Sun/Mon at earliest.

Ok... Last post is in February of 2013...

What is our percentage in Canada ?

Why not just turn it on ? People will see the usefullness and add the other ones no ?

Or let,s see what the % is so we know how many we have to add...

Yes its the reason why we haven't gotten support to change/update prices in Canada.

The support will eventually arrive, but editors have to create 70% of the gas stations in Canada before Waze will enable it. If you notice that a gas station is missing on the map, please go into the editor and edit it, or at the very least submit a 'map issue' report with an simple description so that an editor could add the station for you. Saskatchewan support appears to be VERY low and as long as it remains as such, it will contribute to the problem as no stations will have been added in that province.

Would be nice, I have been adding every station that I know of on the map, I don't know if that helps or not. But it would be such a great feature, and it would be huge asset to Canadian Wazer's and may help to draw in a larger user base, and without numbers the system doesn't work well. And they are going to need every plus the can get as I have a feeling adding advertising to the maps is going to scare away a lot of potential users. Wood be nice if you typed in food or something paid advertisers would pop up, but if I get bombarded with ads for Jimmy's tuna bar etc ever time I stop at light, my Waze days will be short lived.

Is that the real reason why we haven't seen gas station support?

I can go and add dozens of stations that are on my typical drive quite easily, but I'm surprised nobody has done it before me. Which map server should I be using?
