How do I add my business in the map?

Postby xarr0y0 » Wed Nov 16, 2011 10:59 pm


I´ve been using Waze for almost a month and I would like to know how can I add my business in the map. In google, this can be done by using Google Map Maker. How can I add it in Waze?

thanks in advance,

You can also add it to foursquare and possibly yelp. Waze can search there too. Have your gps (phone) at the exact location when you add it. The apps for these are free in the AppStore .

If it is in Google, it is in Waze. Waze searches Google's database to find businesses. No need to add it to Waze.

Although, if you really want to, you can add a Landmark. You can only give it a name, but no other details are usable. You can put address and phone into in the landmark details, but none of that is sortable, and the categories are going to limit you to "business" and no other type of category the business is.

There really is no point to having it Waze except that it appears on the map as a block/blob as the user drives by.
