The editor opens up a large number of sessions. I had a switch that would choke on Waze editing. If you have an older router or a really cheap one, there' s a good chance its running out of sessions. Will often take several minutes of not doing anything for them to clear, then it will work again for a short time.

A good way to test if it is a session issue, is do you have problems with other web traffic? If the sessions are maxed out, your web browser will have problems opening new web pages at the same time.

This sounds pretty much like jondrush's work-a-round for Loop Roads: http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=27728

While his method works great for loops, it does not seem to work for roundabouts that have only one segment.

BTW..., can you Permalink an example of one you have edited this way?

I'm seeing something to Rubinator's screen shot above. "You are a level 3 editor, You can edit 4 miles around roads you've driven. You have 170187 points." However, I'm still really able to edit only 1 mile around roads I've driven.

According to my dashboard, I've got 22,014 map updates, so according to the wiki, I'm still nearly 80,000 edits away from being at the 4-mile editing level (except in my managed area). Of course, I wouldn't object to having a larger edit radius, but I think the "you can edit 4 miles around roads" text is a mistake.

Cool find! Which reminds me... Is there any possibility to reset those speeds, apart from creating the segment new?

Ads and publicity can help the userbase of Waze grow - if the map is ready enough to be acceptable to the majority of the people. If that is not the case new wazers drop off after a week or so. Roughly 1% of the wazepopulation is - be it the slightest - interested in editing and that is a share so small that you will not reach them by advertising. The other 99% will remember from those ads only that Waze is not a solution but a problem needing a fix.

What we really need are address and/or landmark mappings to specific lat/lon coordinates, precise enough to make sense in a driving context. This way we can accurately find anything from residences to specific stores in large strip malls to specific parking lots in parks. I realize it would undoubtedly be a massive undertaking, but it could launch Waze way ahead of everyone else in terms of locating places.


There is no guarantee at all that it will bring you to the right block, or even close, or the right side of the street. A quick-and-dirty process that pretty much excludes the manual checking invites for inaccuracies.

In some countries there exist publicly available records of house numbers. Waze could be helped by importing those, but I doubt that will put them ahead of the rest - they have access to those records as well.
