=== What are My Drives? ===
Drives are journeys that you have driven with the Waze client running. While you drive Waze monitors your journey (recording details like location, time & speed) and transfers this information to the [[servers]]. This data is used to validate the existing mapping (roads, turns etc) and to learn average journey times. Other Waze users and [[Area Manager|Area Managers]] can also view the anonymous GPS tracks of many users when editing the map in the [[Waze_Map_Editor|Waze Map Editor]]. This helps with map accuracy.
=== When do my Drives show up in the Waze Map Editor? ===
=== I recorded new roads in the client - what now? ===
Your newly recorded roads will not appear in Livemap until they have been edited in the Waze Map Editor. WME will show unknown roads in red, however Livemap will only show small arrows if you zoom right in to indicate that it knows of an street/road with no name. The
Cartouche update will need to be done by either you or the appropriate Area Manager, or another user who has also driven close to this road previously.
Please log into WME and edit the details of the road you recorded. You can set the road category, it' s name, city and direction(s). You should also check it' s connectivity to other roads to allow Waze to use it correctly for routing. At the very least you should confirm the driving direction and connect the road to another road.
This is an important part of Wazing as it helps our community build the maps for eveyone to use.
It is planned to implement functionality in the Waze servers to countdown from the road creation so that they disappear from WME unless they have been edited (something like 30 days) to prevent roads incorrectly recorded from remaining on the Livemap.
