- If an address is on an unnamed road, you cannot use a house number. Solve this by adding a Place which contains only the address (residential place for private addresses). If necessary use an entry point to specify the exact location.
- If the correct approach entrance to an address is from a segment with a different street name than the actual address: don't use a house number to identify an address. Rather add a Places which contains only the address (residential place for private addresses).
- Don't add house numbers to segments with road type pedestrian boardwalk or stairway. If such a segment needs house numbers, change it to road type walking trail. More info on the page about non-drivable roads
- When searching for an address in the Waze app or Live map, Waze will first check the house numbers in the Waze database. If the house number isn't known in Waze, the Google Maps database is consulted.
- New house numbers are not automatically added to the map update. By tweaking the segment geometry a little you can force it to next update.
- If a house number is missing from the Waze database, Waze will try to interpolate from the existing house numbers. This works in case of a lot of house numbers in a small spot or if they are uniformly distributed between 2 registered house numbers. This interpolation works with a maximum step of 20, for both sides: the even and odd numbers. It is enough when the numbers 1, 21, 41 and 2, 22, 42 etc. are entered.
