2. Section of new road (or older road) with no address data at either place (waze/google). Should address data be entered in waze only? Google? Both?

1. Your choice. If the address is more closely located to an unnamed private road and there are multiple nearby addresses which could lead to confusion if the stop point is on the street, use google and remove Waze HNs. If these are houses directly on a named street and little chance of confusion, update the Waze marker so it will be preferred over google.

2. Add it to Waze, but taking into consideration the "long private/shared drive" situation I brought up in the first answer.

That's a pretty good summation. Google addresses inside of parking lots usually work better too, for the same reasons.

Where to update/enter address data.

Postby Lequs » Tue May 06, 2014 7:50 am

I'm a bit confused on this, apologize if I just missed a source of information.
Read through the Wiki and various posts here on where the navigation function gets its addresses.
I've heard:
-All addresses for navigation comes from Google.
-All addresses came from Google but from here forward all new roads rely only on waze user entered addresses.
-All addresses need to be entered into waze for all streets.

Let me put it this way. Two questions:
1. Addresses for an old existing street are in Google but inaccurate. Should I put the correct addresses at the correct locations in waze only. Update them in Google mapmaker only? Both?
2. Section of new road (or older road) with no address data at either place (waze/google). Should address data be entered in waze only? Google? Both?

Again, sorry if this has been answered but its not really clear to me and I don't really want to put in hours of data entry on a source that will not help users of waze at all.
Thanks!

Thank you for the response.
Just to be clear to me, let me know if this is wrong...basically update them in either, add new ones in waze. With the caveat of long driveways usually functioning better in Google.

Thanks again,
