Also note that longer drives tend to take longer to post (disproportionately) than shorter drives.
If I drive a longer distance (you pick, 10 miles, 25 miles, or more) many times I'll exit the app. This will cause your points to register for that portion of your drive. Usually much faster than a single, very long drive.

The system has been exceptional in always posting user's points. Albeit, sometimes it takes a bit before the posts occur.

It just takes a few days for updates to populate on the Dashboard since the system is processing so many users. This tripped me up at first too (I'm used to most web-things updating instantly) but I was assured that it just takes a little time for the calcs to get completed (lower priority than routing and the map server, naturally).

After a few days your points should be up-to-date on the Dashboard, and your drives updated. Also, don't worry if the points in the client don't 100% match the points in the Dashboard - the client guesses how many points you've earned, but the Dashboard does some other voodoo with more sophisticated calcs, so it may come up with a slightly different answer. Nothing to worry about.

The one thing you should do now is to make sure you are logged into the right server - if you are driving in the US, you should be logged into www.waze.com's dashboard, and if you are driving elsewhere in the world you should be logged into world.waze.com's dashboard.
