Got questions?

I didn't get as many map edits as I should have

There are a few reasons why this might have happened:
  • You made a large number of updates before you clicked Save. You can only earn a maximum of 150 map edits per Save. 
  • You updated multiple properties in a segment before you clicked Save. Map edits are granted per updated segment/node/object, regardless of how many properties within the segment you updated.
  • You updated the same segment multiple times within 24 hours. In this case you will only receive map edits for updating one segment.

Why don't I see my edits on the map right away?

Updates to the map are published approximately once a day. After you’ve saved your Map edits, they won’t appear live in the Waze app or livemap until the next Map Build Process
