General Question

Post by Lightmatrix
Hello Fellow Wazers!

I absolutely love this app... being the competitive person I am I find myself driving around looking for dotted roads and cars on the shoulder!

I have a simple question:

Do you amass points driving regardless of if you have a GPS destination programmed in? Or do you have to have a destination programmed? So if I just leave Waze on while driving will I get the 5 points per mile driven?


Also what happens if I leave Waze on in an airplane? Hah!

Thanks for your clarification and I look forward to passing you by on the highways and byways of wherever!

You don't need to plug in a route. Please don't use waze in an aircraft.

I don't leave it on in an airplane. Was just being facetious for the sake of humor.

Anyhow thank you for your quick answer!

Advantages of pluging in a destination are 1) waze will reroute you around traffic. 2) lets you play with search function to be aware of different locations between bing, google, YP, etc. each may give a slightly different location pin. 3) if there is a routing error, when waze stops trying to get you off of your current route and back on to the way you are heading, generally that's where an error is like a one way street or a turn restriction.

If you want points, start editing the map. That's where the most points can be made.

Unfortunately it would work and has been proved to several times. It also works in trains, buses, on bicycles and when walking. All of these transport modes have the ability to screw up the data that Waze needs to route traffic properly.

Also, stop quoting whole posts. Just reply. It's f**king annoying and goes against our forum etiquette.
