Cannot edit

Postby A_Kamf » Tue Mar 26, 2013 8:51 pm

Hi!
I have been using Waze for four months, but the village where i live is not very well updated. Roads are missing etc. So I thought I might contribute and finally, tonight when the kids fall a sleep I got a spare hour.
But when I try to add a street, I cannot save and get a message that I need to drive here before I can contribute. I have driven here, why cant I edit? Is this a bug or am I missing something?
Does this mean I cannot add the street of my parents house before I actually visit them (and bring turn on waze when going there)?

I would like it to be easy to contribute... Even for a first time user.

Regards
Anders

I've the same problem.
I tried to add the private road where my parents live, (or a near parking lot)but the server tell me I've no permission.
Obviusly i drove there i lot of time and with the wake on my phone always on, so I can see the map not obscurated.
May be that the area manager block anything?

I have the same problem. The areas I can edit are places I have only been there once before.

In short, you need to drive there with waze in order to edit there.

Do you have the link of area in question. Can you get a permalink of it and put it here?
Thanks

As was asked, which server are you trying to use? That will affect your ability to edit. Also, take a look at your routes and see if you can find one for that area of the map.

I have the same problem - that although driving in my home area quite a lot - I can't edit there, and have no areas in the area section.

Any ideas?
