Your problem is with Bing, not Waze. Send a request to get the street put onto the Bing maps.

The search relies on external search engines. The data in the Waze map is necessary to give you directions to get you from place to place.

Does bing find it?

When you search, have you looked at the other results from google, yelp, YP, four square?

Search doesn't find street

Postby OffMyAz » Sat Aug 11, 2012 4:17 pm

Hello I am very new to Waze and this is my first post. I have searched and found similiar problems but not this exact one, pardon me if it's been asked.

I can look on a map in the editor and manually locate a certain street, but when I search for it in the editor (or anywhere else) it is not found. My guess from looking at previous posts is that it has to do with search provided by Bing. But if this is true, what is the purpose of someone adding the road in the editor if Waze doesn't know it's there?

I`m not sure if I should be confused or if it's a real problem that can be corrected.

Thanks and so far besides this problem and a nasty sounding TTS, Waze is awesome!

Good news. Finally I can find my street in the android apps and in the webbrowsers live map, too.

I did nothing, only sit and wait. So my changes in editor was correct, I added street in map editor correctly.

Actually I did one thing. I wrote my problem to waze support and maybe they changed something. I have got one mail where I confirmed and explained my problem again and then a second mail if I can confirm that searching the street will find it now. That's all.

In the mean time, at least 3 or 4 tiles updates has been made in INTL server. Maybe it helped too, who knows.

I really really agree with your thought! I too tried months ago to ask Waze to solve this incredible problem, but I am still waiting...

You cannot do anything about it, that was the conclusion of this thread. I have since uninstalled and forgotten about Waze, only to be reminded by the fact I was subscribed to this thread.

Waze in theory should be the most amazing app ever, but in reality has too many issues. But when I come here to the forums I just feel like people are bothered by answering questions, not just my posts but reading answers to other posts ... not the most friendly group ... so forget it.

I've gotten along fine with Google Nav till now ... sure it doesn't have socially updated traffic and issues but it doesn't claim to. Waze DOES claim to, but it really doesn't either, at least to no amount of accuracy. I guess at least this app and it's usage could be an insight into human nature and how people are easily amused by reporting fictitious problems and hazards and getting useless points for it, while someone trying to do good by improving the map gets a Bing map in return. Please remind me of the point?

Ah look me ranting about an uninstalled app. How thoughtless of me. Good luck with Waze.

I have the same issue in the Czech republic. I have added street 2 tiles updates before but street can't be found by any searcher in the app and in the web livemap. Although street can be found on the web in any searcher - bing, google, openstreetmaps,...

I am confused. What can I do more for the street being found?
