Languages and Countries

Waze is strongly committed to supporting the different countries and languages of the world but depends on your help.

There are nearly 1000 words and phrases in the client device app that needs translation. You can help translate into your local language.

How You Can Help

Problems, bugs and limitations

  • If you have the "No Name Roads" layer selected in Cartouche you cannot select any roads
  • If you have the GPS Points layer selected it can be difficult or impossible to select a road because you are always selecting a GPS point. This can happen even if the GPS points are not visible at your current zoom level.
  • Known issues with Cartouche - needs updating
  • Newly plotted (unknown, red-line) roads are not showing in Cartouche at the 3 minimum zoom levels. Waze is aware of this and are working to fix it
  • Some roads are reverting back to an unconfirmed state (back to Pacman roads with dots on them). Waze is investigating this. Please report any observed examples in this forum thread
  • Client device problems
  • [Currently working] On 9 September the routing server was unavailable for over 12 hours. It was also unavailable for an hour on 13 September. Client routing and Live Map routing fails with a message that the routing server could not be contacted.

Development plans and priorities

  • Getting European map grids in place
  • Road blocks
  • Upgrading the world servers, which has increased the speed of editing maps in Cartouche
