Displays your current location on the map, with an icon representing your car. 
 
(you can change the icon for your car via the BlackBerry Menu Button > Profile > Car) (Add internal link). This is the default state of waze's main screen provided if you have GPS connectivity in your current location (green or orange GPS icon on the status bar)(Add status bar chapter)(Add internal link). <br/>
 
Whenever the car icon isn't displayed, just press "Me on Map" to update the map to your current location. If you don't have a good enough GPS connection (grey GPS icon with an X on it), the "me on map" option won't be available, because if you don't have a GPS connection, waze can't determine your approximate location. <br/>

Simply by driving around with waze running on their smartphones, drivers share real-time information that waze translates into road and traffic conditions. These are called "events". This information about events is collected and analyzed in real time to provide all wazers with the optimal route to their destination at any given moment. <br/>
 
This  menu organized by type of event, of the real-time live reports by wazers about problems in your area:
 
*All - gives you a list of all events reported in your area, listed by distance
 
*Police - displays only reports of police cars/traps , listed by distance
 
*Traffic - displays only reports of traffic loads in your area (light / moderate / heavy / standstill) listed by distance
 
*Accidents - displays only reports of accidents in your area.
 
*Chit Chats – display the conversations of wazers around you.
 
*Other - any reports of events that aren't in one of the above 3 categories.

If Waze does not know the house numbers on your destination road, or you don't enter a house number, Waze will choose the middle of the road.
