Revision as of 03:42, 2 February 2012

In the dashboard and on the scoreboard under 'My Waze' in the waze application, you can see your points and rank. You'll be able to follow your progress and driving activity inside Waze. Each field represents a different type of your activity inside Waze. Every night our system will calculate all the points that you accumulated in all the different fields through the day. The system will then allocate you in your new position inside the rank table. Your rank can change on a daily basis.

NOTE: Occasionally, our system has some delays with updating the points. If you think the points have not updated properly, it's worth checking our status page - http://status.waze.com - to make sure that there are no current issues with the points system.

How are points calculated?

From the blog post [1]:

USA points unit
Normal driving 5 per mile
Road reporting¹ 6 per report
Report comments 3 per comment
Road munching 16 per mile
New road recording 64 per mile
Editing the map² 1.5 per edit
Solving map update requests 3 per request solved
Adding street names 3 per name
Adding house numbers 3 per house number
Forum posts 2 per 3 forum posts
World points unit
Normal driving 3.2 per km
Road reporting¹ 6 per report
Report comments 3 per comment
Road munching 10 per km
New road recording 40 per km
Editing the map² 1.5 per edit
Solving map update requests 3 per request solved
Adding street names 3 per name
Adding house numbers 3 per house number
Forum posts 2 per 3 forum posts

¹ Pings, chit-chats and their comments do not accumulate points.

² Mass-editing (selecting multiple roads and update them) in Cartouche counts for 1.5 point per road segment you edit, independent of how many fields/attributes are updated. (From the Waze Forum [2] )

Bonus Point Opportunities

There are other ways to earn points. Once you meet the criteria for one of the following tasks below, a message pops up upon running Waze on your device. The message states you've earned a "candy" that contains # points. Simply drive over where the candy is located and the points will be added to your total upon Waze's next ranking update. The bonus points can only be earned once unless otherwise noted.

Task Points Notes
Your first 10 miles 25
Your first report 25
Your first weekend report 30
First report of a map problem 50
First friend on waze 200 Obtainable only by connecting your Facebook account to Waze. One of your Facebook friends has to also connect his/her account to Waze in order to obtain the bonus points.
First week1 you drove 2 days 100
First week1 you drove 3 days 200
Your first map edit 200
First week1 you drove 4 days 300

Drive 500 miles within a week1 1000
First five friends on waze 2000 See "First friend on waze"

1 Waze bases a week on a work week which means the week starts on Monday and ends on Sunday.

Waze ranks

Waze Baby

Welcome to the world, Wazer! You're a baby now, but not for long... Drive 100 miles to become a Grown up.
Happy@2x.png

Waze Grown-Up

You've matured and can now pick a new Waze mood. To become a Waze Warrior you'll need to seriously ramp up on points...

Waze Warrior

Behold the shield! You've reached the top 10% of high scorers in your region. Maintaining it won't be easy...

Waze Knight

The sword is yours! You've reached the top 4% of high scorers in your region. You're almost Royalty... Keep on looking for point opportunities
KingWaze.png

Waze Royalty

You've arrived! You're in the top 1% of high scorers in your region. Drive around knowing you're as VIP as they come...


To reach king level, you have to be in a certain top % of all wazers in your locality (in the US, this is determined by state).

The top % is calculated once a month, and if more and more wazers get points, it's possible that the total amount needed to reach shield / sword / crown will actually go up. While it could be frustrating, it helps us guarantee that no one gets the 'royalty' level for good - it always gives a chance for new wazers to come along and get it.

There's special VIP ranks for users who go out and beyond with Waze. VIP users show up uniquely in the app. Discussion on VIP Users
