User dashboard now has web group connectivity so you can create and join groups via the web, regardless of device support (which is in the works and I hope to have initial beta versions next week).

I created a group. 2 questions:

1) Can I change the name of the group?

2) How do I set up a Facebook group so that the little Facebook button works on the Waze iPhone interface? I don't know what to type in the "Link" field.

I can answer the first question because I had that problem. There is no way for a user to change a group name at present. I got around it by emailing and asking them to change it for me. Dror was kind enough to change the name for me.

Just a thought... are there plans for having a web based option for creating or editing of waze groups?

If you are logged into Facebook as yourself, go to and create a Page for your group. Then copy the main URL for that page up to, but not including, any ?ref=xxx entry and paste this into your Waze group. This is easier done via the Waze Dashboard than on the client.
