Game time! Announcing Waze NBA Playoffs!

It's on NBA fans! With the playoffs just around the corner, we want to help you get excited and ready to support your favorite team. For the next few months, get ready to see lots of NBA-related awesome happening on Waze. Here's some things you can expect to see:

Hit the road with Vlade Divac!

A special treat just for the NBA playoffs. For a limited time, we've added special voice prompts from NBA legend and current Vice President of Basketball and Franchise Operations of the Sacramento Kings Vlade Divac to help you get to where you need to go in style. And who knows? More voices just may be revealed throughout the month. To get Vlade’s voice just go to Settings > Sound > Navigation Guidance.

Show Your Support with Teams

From April 15 until mid-June, Wazers worldwide (on iPhone and Android) will be able to support their favorite NBA team's playoff run by joining that team on Waze. When joining a team, your Wazer will display the team's badge for everyone else to see.
Another perk of joining a team is....

Road Goodies! (Nom Nom Nom)

Basketball road goodies will be spread out on the map for the duration of the NBA playoffs. Users who don't join a team will only see 10% of the goodies, However users who do join a team will see 100% of the goodies for the entire duration of the NBA playoffs.
As usual, Wazers will be able to drive over (or "munch") road goodies, with each goody being worth 3 points.
For the NBA playoffs though, all the points you munch will also be added to the team you support (provided you joined a team). Teams will then compete against each other in an epic battle, team against team, to see who will come out on top with all the glory! Of course, if you're the kind of Wazer who'd prefer to not see goodies, you can always turn them off through Settings > Display Settings > Show on Map > Road Goodies Off.

Check your team's standings

We've even prepared this special site to help you keep track of everything related to Waze NBA playoffs. You can check-in daily to see if you are out-munching the competition and to see how your team is doing in the overall rankings.

How to Join a Team

Teams can be selected by going to Menu (left button) > My Waze > Teams > Choose your NBA team. From there, any team on the list can be joined.
You can leave a team and join another one if you wish, but only one team can be joined at a time.After joining a team, you will receive notifications when your team is playing a big game. With team badges, road goodies, voice prompts and a friendly (yet epic) competition for ultimate bragging rights, we hope that you Wazers are as excited about the next few weeks as we are. So what are you waiting for? Go join your favorite team, get Vlade’s voice and get munching!
