* When searching for an address in the [[Waze app]] or [[Live map]], Waze will first check the own Waze house numbers - both the manual created and the imported ones. If the house number isn't known in Waze, the Google Maps database is consulted.
<!--T:5-->* If an address is on an unnamed road (private, parking lot, etc.) don't use a house number to identify an address but add a [[Residential Place|private residence place]] which contains only the address. If necessary use an entry point to specify the exact location.
* If the correct approach entrance to an address is from a street or segment other than the street the address is named after, then don't use a house number to identify an address but add a [[Residential Place|private residence place]] which contains only the address.
<!--T:10-->* House When adding <i>house numbers with </i> for appartment buildings it is nice not to add all numbers on top of each other. Add them in such a letterway that an editor can trace, on the highest zoon level, like 123Aeach number individually. <!--T:11-->* If some <i>house numbers</i> are missing, entered in Waze are not yet used for getting will try to interpolate the missing <i>house number</i> of the destination locationrequested address. Searching on This works in case of a lot of <i>house numbers</i> in a small spot or if <i>house numbers</i> are uniformly distributed in space between 2 registered <i>house numbers </i>. This interpolation works with an alphanumeric extension a maximum step of 20, for both sides: the even and odd numbers. It is still done via enough when the Google databasenumbers 1, 21, 41 and 2, 22, 42 etc are entered.
