House numbers are editable only at the 100m/200ft zoom level and lower. House numbers cannot be added to segments without a name. House numbers cannot contain anything except numbers. A segment cannot have its name removed if there are house numbers attached to it.

To edit, update or delete house numbers on a street, start by selecting the segment you wish to update. Then click on the Edit House Numbers button or tap the H keyboard shortcut.

Waze will often select an additional segment or two connected to the segment you selected when they are the same city and name (same Street ID). You can pan the map along that selection to edit house numbers on more than just the single segment you selected.

The light area around the road is the default distance that house numbers are allowed from the street. If a house number must be located beyond that distance, you will need to Force the house number into place. More on that later.

To edit a house number, click in the number and change it.

To move a house number, click in the number, and then click and drag using the blue dot handle.

To delete a house number, click in the number, and then click the red X.

To add a house number, click the Add button on the toolbar. Click on the location of the house or business address. Enter the house number.

When moving a house number or adding one, you will see a dashed white line (with aerials enabled) leading to a white dot on the road you selected. This white dot is the Stop Point for navigation to that house number. It can be moved anywhere on the named segment for that address. It cannot be moved to any other segment.

Before you tap Esc on the keyboard or click Close, remember to Save your changes.

Forcing House numbers can be located beyond the normal allowed distance from the street, but when saving, you will be prompted to confirm forcing the house number(s) into place. If you have more than one which requires forcing, only one confirmation will force them all. So be sure you are confident that all are correctly located.
