Postcodes

Waze does not natively support postcode navigation, this means Waze must use a third party (Google Maps) to obtain the centre of a postcodes location and will then naivate the user to the closest segment. Editor have no designated way to set a postcode to the correct buildings, street, or area. Postcodes will generally cover multiple properties and in rural locations often cover large areas.

Fixing postcode errors

  • Postcodes should only be fixed in Waze where there is a genuine error in the location of the postcode and Waze routes users to an inappropriate destination (ie, wrong side of a river / railway, the middle of a motorway / dual carriageway, etc).
  • Postcodes should not be fixed if Waze already routes users onto the correct road, a postcode alone rarely locates to a single building. In these cases users should be reminded that Waze is designed to navigate to road names and business names for better routing.
  • Before attempting to fix to fix a postcode you should check the Royal Mail Postcode Finder to better understand which properties a postcode covers, if a postcode covers properties on both side of an obstacle, such as a river, correcting it for one side will cause errors for the other side, and therefore should not be fixed.

Single buildings

On the occasions when a single building is assigned an exclusive postcode (ie, large apartment blocks, DVLA, etc), a Place can be created for the business / building itself and the postcode linked in the External providers section.
