Waze Forums (official)

Official announcements and community discussion forums

Waze uses a third party product called phpBB for their forums. You may browse the forums as a guest, but you must login, using your Waze username and password, to post a message. Logging also allows:

  • New message indication icons
  • First unread message links
  • Private messaging (PM)
  • Topic subscriptions (you receive email when a new post is made)

The forums support Tapatalk for the iPhone. Tapatalk is a paid app but there is a free version for read only access to the forums

The forums provide an RSS feed. Here are instructrions for getting an RSS feed on subfourms

The forums have a search facility, but do not index certain common words. If that is a problem you can follow these instructions to search the forum using Google

IRC - Internet Relay Chat (unofficial)

Most Wazers currently use the ##waze IRC channel on the freenode.net network to chat in real time.

Wazers originally used the #waze IRC on the shadowfire.org network.

IRC can be accessed with computer IRC client programs (such as mIRC for PCs), smart device IRC client apps, or via a web based client such as ##waze on freenet or Mibbit for #waze on shadowfire.
