Unfortunately, some of the actual cheaters couldn't give a continental sh..one..t about the data and it's accuracy. You might be ok with it, but by and large the rest of the community is not.

Not all cheating methods used contribute to the map, in fact, some methods totally screw up large parts of the map.
This translates to many dedicated hours of individuals' times being wasted by a single twat in a few minutes.

I've often run into this problem, trying to use two devices at the same time (usually when the good-screen-one requires a restart).

Right now it keeps complaining that I'm already logged in, blocking the screen and being rather obnoxiously distracting.

I'm not sure why.

Ah, feel free to link the threads. On a brief search I found no explanation to the reasons behind it.

That seems trivial enough.

Hmm. If people decimate the map it seems like a much, much worse problem and can't have much to do with cheating. Does that really happen? If so, we need a wiki-like history on maps so we can back destructive changes.

I can't see drive-points-cheating leading to anything other than fancy icons and thus not very useful.
Other than using people very far away, then it might allow you to decimate the map over there as well, but I can't really see the train of thought anyone might have there ("You, over there in Faraway City, use my account so I can ruin the map for you!!1!" or what?)...

I doubt it would destroy anything very quickly having two devices giving the latest speed data rather than one. If only one more car would drive on the road (worst case), it would still only contribute 30% more than it would with only one device. (With no other car on the road, it has the full contribution regardless, and with more than one other car the contribution lowers dramatically.)

Or is waze using some much, much fuzzier sort of math?

Two devices in one car gives exactly the same problem as two cars with waze following each other, and that doesn't seem to be a problem at all. Rather it updates the road data better, from what I've seen... :p

It is always possible to use two different accounts if you don't care for the points. You'll get both data and editing access to both areas.

install on two devices

Postby rasg81 » Fri Dec 07, 2012 4:03 pm

Quick question: what happens if i install waze and use the same account on two different devices?

I ask because i want to edit a small city were i lived my entire life (moved away last year) and there are lots of wrong informations (a quick count showed more than 15) that i would like to correct.

Can i ask my brother to drive around with my waze account so i can edit the city?

totally agree with you. i dont care about points. actually, i have disabled those small candies on the map. they're very distracting.

but i do care, and a lot, about accuracy on my rotes and gas prices. the main reason for using waze (for me, of course).

about applying for AM, not sure about how it works. kind of new around here.

thanks all.

Tested yesterday logging on my phone and tablet at the same time.
Worked just fine.
