Driving 500 miles in a week

I finally got it today. A message popped up telling me. Then I got the candy a minute later.

Then about 10 minutes later, I got this:

I've never seen these announcements before. I got 4 more editing candies over the next couple of hours but didn't get the message again.

Mostly true about the stops, but don't forget when we were in Palo Alto and we were both getting them in slow traffic on the Freeway.

I drove all the way from New Orleans to Hattiesburg yesterday and when I got off the Interstate and stopped at a light, that's when the message popped up about 500 miles. Then I got two editing candies. After driving back to New Orleans, once I got close to home, a couple more popped up.

I've found that recently, it puts the candies pretty close, so I haven't often had the issue of the candy appearing after a turn I wanted to make. When navigating, the candy is always on the route, but if I go against navigation and it recalculates, it won't move a candy that's already popped up.

One day, you'll probably be in heavy stop and go traffic and you'll pick up 100 candies. :D

I also find that I'll get a couple of candies near the beginning of a drive, and then nothing for a while, regardless of stops. But if I shut down Waze because I'm getting out of the car, when I start Waze back up, I'll get a couple more candies.

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.

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.

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

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. :?

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

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.

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.
