If you didn’t know already, Waze has a points system for contributing to the map. Wazers can add new items to the map and report road hazards to get points and rank up.

As you rank up, things that you edit can’t be modified by other users that are lower rank than you.

Also, points show how much you contributed to Waze and you can compare yourself with other Wazers from your country and worldwide. Let’s not forget bragging in front of your friends.

How can I earn Waze points faster?

1. Get points fast in Waze

There are a couple of ways to get points in Waze:

  • First, you can get Driving points by keeping the app running while driving. You get 5 points per mile for Normal driving (3.2 points fro KM), and 16 points per mile for Road munching (10 points per KM).
  • You can also get points by reporting issues on the road. You get 6 points for every Road reporting, 8 points for Gas/fuel price reports, and 3 points for Report comments.

If you want to get more points faster, the most important thing to keep in mind is map editing. Editing the map as much and as often you can will get you a lot of points fast.

You can’t make too many edits on your map? Well, that’s because many objects/items/reports were already done by higher rank editors.

The solution is to drive further to make your map bigger and have a lot more editing area. After you have a bigger map, you can start searching for things that need to be edited.

If you want to check how many points you have, follow the steps:

  1. Open the Waze app on your device.
  2. In the bottom-left of your screen, tap on the magnifying glass.
  3. Now tap on your name.
  4. Here you’ll see your name, points, and when you joined Waze. You’ll also see a lot of other options, including Scoreboard where you can check your level, points, and achievements.

Make sure to complete all the achievements if you want to get a lot of points fast. Some of them are worth between 500 and 1000 points, so there are very important for a quick rank-up.

Depending on your driving points, you’ll also achieve better Waze ranks.

To become a level 2 editor, you have to complete 1000 map edits. This is a must an can’t be avoided in any way.

Because a lot of Wazers complain about the inability to level up faster, we recommend to drive more and further to expand your map and get a bigger editable area.

Remember that you can always make place updates. The place updates rarely need approval from higher level editors.
