The low point value is kind of disappointing. I'm starting to run out of regular road cookies as it is that are close enough to "on my way" that I'm willing to waste the extra gas/time on. Better off going straight home to edit.

Seems to me that I saw a few spawn this morning on my drive home from work ... there was nothing at that spot last night, saw nothing there as I was driving, then POOF, there's a candy cane in front of me, and 2 seconds later, I'm 5 points closer to knocking "rescue557" off his pedestal as the #1 Wazer in NY. :lol: Might have just been some kind of lag or lull or something that caused this, but it happened three times this morning (including one Santa hat that I saw pop up on a path a mile behind me, that I had just come off of :x).

Last year, the Santa hats were 100 pts. Now 7. Nevertheless, I was excited to see cookies again. The regular cookies were all munched weeks ago, so it was about time to get these things back again! It's a great way to show the fun part to new users. For us "regular users", the points for the cookies don't really add-up too much...I guess I got 100 pts this morning from the cookies. Not a lot on ~300k points.

Twitter? What's that? :P


I have no idea, but there's a "Twitter Feed" on the Community Page. :?

These goodies are kind of disappointing after getting a few 750 point candies and then goodies that are only worth 2 or 7 points. Do any of them have a high value?

Yep, the Grinch has returned them, but in a devalued way ... snowflakes are 2 points, candy canes are 5 points, and Santa hats are 7 points. Hardly makes it worth going a couple of blocks out of your way to get them, but for the few that are right on the way, it's not bad, I guess. :)

I see them now. They just weren't there when I drove to work a little while ago :)

using iphone 4s if that means anything.

Even turned off the location functionality so the nav wouldnt just keep running, closed app, but when I re-open, popup is still on. Do I need to delete app and re-install?


That's strange.

A couple of suggestions before tying to uninstall/reinstall:

* Close Waze from the recents menu. Double click home, hold down one of the icons in the recents menu that appears at the bottom of the screen, click the x next to Waze. Try launching Waze again.

* Restart phone. Hold down the power button... keep holding... hold it until the phone powers off. keep holding... release the power button when you see the white Apple logo. Try launching Waze again.
