I find it takes a while (2..3 weeks per town, depending how many hours a day you put into it) but the results are worth it. This is what I did for places like Wexford, Enniscorthy, Athy, Kilkenny and Carlow (building on the work started by others, mind you - Waze mapping is definitely a team effort!)
And house numbers! don't forget house numbers!

House numbers do seem to be making a difference for me, although I don't know if it is because waze have implemented searching them internally or if they are still pulling that sort of detail from Google. I shall continue testing. I do know that some of the area/places are now properly searchable, but... the results are not structured in a usable way, this I believe is being worked upon.

Well a little our of date, but you will be happy to know that Waze now uses it's internal house number for searches. It kind of has for a while, however recently as last week; Waze implemented a bug fis that was causing Waze to still use Google.

This news is still undergoing testing in the US to confirm. But as I hear more I'll let you know.

Also I don't know if it has been posted. But ever since the release of the new client and Places system. Waze now prioritizes it's own POI database over Googles.

Both searches can and sometimes do appear in the auto-complete, so you have to make sure you select the Waze one.
