They do for me.
I've been able to search landmarks for the past month.

This seems like an odd way of stating this. As what I'm hearing is that parking lots that are individual businesses, whether municipally or privately run, should be added to the map as landmarks.
EXACTLY!!!!skapur1 wrote:1. People are confusing POIs with landmarks. Since Waze does not allow editors to add POIs but allows editors to add landmarks, editors add landmarks when they really want to add POIs. In theory, POIs are searchable whereas landmarks are viewable. They are very similar and related concepts.

Individual businesses who want to appear on the map should visit biz.waze.com and pay for an ad.

This would still be wrong because the foursquare POIs should put the [P] pin on those parking lots as you approach your destination.
The more landmarks on the map, the less value they have.
