In Brazil, we use the comma as decimal delimiter instead of the point. The Waze for IOS does not accept comma to update fuel prices...

Are you using v 3.2.2.0?

EDIT: Disregard. I believe this is still a known issue as someone already posted about price entry problems for Brazil in the official feedback thread for v3.2.2.0.

In the US, we have no currently ability to effect gas station adds or changes. We hope someday... but because Waze and a 3rd party are "tied" together, I am unsure how they may go about giving us this ability.

Maybe the already-existing "Issues and Requests" forum which exists also under App and Editor forums?

In addition, I have found quite a few gas stations in my area that are displaced as much as half a mile from their actual locations. Does moving the gas station landmark result in correct navigation, or is the incorrect position "sticky?"

All gas station info in the app is live connected to the editor. In tests, in fact, you can add a new station and immediately find it in the app. Seriously, it's immediate.

As for the search location, we've made Waze aware that the search location hasn't matched the actual landmark, and they are surpised. I haven't tested this recently, though. They are supposed to match completely, but there may be a bug in the system.

Not sure about exactly how they are handled in ROW, but the US gas station landmarks are what are used for updating prices in the US. This was enabled April 14, 2013.

What I wished for the gas prices feature is another GUI for the input of gas prices.
Now I have to input 16 digits for one station, even if the proce changes only for some cents.
My suggestion is:
After tipping on a price, it becomes zoomed (so you can see it better at a bad light) and a slider to change the price. ;)
best regards Alex ;)

Here in the US many to most gas stations will list the price for regular unleaded and diesel on their big signs. I think that a lot of people are driving around entering prices as they drive by (dangerous, covered already), and entering "N/A" because they don't know the price of mid-grade and premium. As I understand it, this defeats the purpose of being able to enter your preferred fuel type and searching for it as you're driving.


If somebody selects "N/A" does this prevent others from entering a price for that type of fuel? For example, my local Sainsbury's (UK supermarket fuel station) stocks 3 out of the 4 types of fuel available in the UK version of Waze - normal unleaded, super unleaded and diesel. It doesn't stock LPG which is the 4th type of fuel in Waze.

Currently Waze is showing prices for normal unleaded and diesel, but "N/A" for super unleaded and LPG. When I tried to enter the latest prices, it let me update normal unleaded and diesel, but came back with an error saying something like "Whoops! Fuel type not available" when I tried to enter the super unleaded price.

I usually run my car on super and the prices for this fuel vary wildly, from 3p to 8p a litre more than standard unleaded, depending on the brand. Also, UK fuel stations very rarely show their price for super on the board outside, normally it's just normal unleaded and diesel. You have to actually pull up at the pump to find out the price for super, and I was hoping that Waze would be able to help me avoid having to do this.

So far, the fuel price feature is worse than useless for me, Waze need to sort this problem out.

Gasoline prices are not updated in the client. This step allows more fail to update prices, and ultimately it will be more leaving Waze for another gps.
