Yes, at a stop is an exaggeration on my point. It needs to be at least a rolling stop or heavy traffic. I would assume the GPS signal quality will never ever show a device standing still, so there must be some threshold of below a certain speed.

I can understand that they want to pop up candies in front of you and give you a chance to see them, but if your trip doesn't have many stops or slow periods, it makes it really difficult to get the candies.

Especially in navigation mode it should just assume you will follow the route a place the candies appropriately.

I think I saw the announcement for editing candies ONCE ever, and it was on a 2.x client. And I get editing candies at least once a week.

By the way, for me I've noticed that editing candies only re-spawn after I come to a complete stop. Say I earned 3 candies. First pops up in front of me (with no notification). I get it and hear the fan fare and sparkle etc.

Now the next time I come to a stop (traffic light etc), I will hear a little pop sound and a new candy will have spawned in front of me. I can then repeat that pattern and grab all 3 in a short period of time.

BUT, say that after I grab that first candy I hop on the interstate. I can then drive hours and hours, with or with out navigating a route, and no more candies will pop up -- until I come to a stop again. And it doesn't have to be an interstate. If I time the lights well in town I can drive across town in 20 minutes with out a full stop and I won't see a candy until I stop.

I think the 500 miles in a week is one time. Week after next I'll be driving up to NY and NJ again and that is 700 miles one way. So I'll either have two 700 mile weeks or one 1,400 mile week and I'll be able to check.

Sometimes waze also just stopped. See my post in the Client Forum about 750 bonus candies.

From my observations of the 750-point candy pop-ups (and I've seen a lot of them ;)), here's how they occur for me:
1. I have to come to a complete stop for a few seconds (enough for the speedometer on Waze screen to show 0 mph -- even 1-2 mph doesn't seem to be slow enough to trigger the candy). :?
2. After starting up again, the candy will pop up at the next junction node on the map in the direction that I'm going (or that Waze thinks I should be going, if navigation is on).
3. To get another earned candy ... repeat from step 1 :) (even if the next stop is at the other end of the interstate).

I've had an interesting bug over the last couple of days, though. Sometimes I'll hear the sound of the candy appearing, but no candy will appear on the screen; when I arrive at the junction, however, I hear the trumpets and my little car goes all ":lol:" on me. I appear to get the points, but the candy doesn't show on-screen ... but only sometimes ... usually it's visible. Weird. :?

I commute far more than 500 miles a week, and can confirm: the 500 miles in a week is a 1 time bonus.

Did you maybe not get credit for it the first time?

I see this for other bonus candies, that if for example you are not connected to the network at the time. It appears that the bonus needs to be registered as "eaten" at the time it is, and is not stored for upload later.

You are kidding! How can we get them to resolve that? I am new to Waze and the scoring issues began pretty much as soon as I signed up. This happens all the time? I don't understand why they can't go back and apply all of the 500 mile peoples' points. I keep looking every day, assuming that they will show up.

Driving 500 miles in a week

When will my scoreboard give me credit for driving 500 miles in a week? I drove over 500 miles in a week during that period when points were not updating properly. . It still shows that I did not reach this goal. Thanks!

I've seen that, but I think that's the Valentine's candy spontaneously appearing.

I picked up 11 editing candies today. I was in stop and go traffic for over an hour today for the first time in a couple of weeks. I must've had a backlog. I probably put 40 hours into editing last week. I haven't been getting much sleep.
