Contest details








We’re giving away an Android myTouch 3G phone or iPhone 3Gs (winner's choice) to one of the first 100 unique wazers who send in a road report in your state! Note that we'll start with the first 10 states to get to 100 road reports by unique users, and may expand the contest afterwards, accordingly.








With one entry per user, if you're one of the first 100 drivers to send a road report in your state, you'll have a 1% chance to win! And even if you don’t win, we’ll send the top 5 waze road reporters (by frequency), in these first 10 states, a bag of goodies as a thank you for their contributions to the community.








What you can do to increase your chances of winning








To make sure your state reaches 100 road reports by unique users, contact your friends and acquaintances with iPhone or Android phones, directing them to this link to enter the contest.




You can also:






  • Write about the contest in your blog


  • Tweet to your followers


  • Link to this page via your Facebook status update


  • Stay tuned to @waze on Twitter for contest updates



By spreading the word, you’re actually increasing your own chances to win!








How to send a report on waze








Once you’ve downloaded the app, you’ll find the 'Report' button on the bottom right hand side of the main screen. Reporting is as simple as tapping this button, choosing the type of event you'd like to report on and pressing send.








How to get waze on your phone








If you're an iPhone user, go ahead and download waze from the Appstore by searching for 'waze' or finding us under the 'Navigation' category. If you're an Android user there are two ways you can install waze for your Android phone - either visit the Android Market and search for waze there, or open the barcode scanner on your phone and scan our QR code, below.

  18. Hi Albert -
    The good news is that each state can win as long as they get to 100 unique road reports. Here are the top 20 so far: CA TX MN FL IL CO VA CT NY MA NJ WA GA MD AZ OH AL OR TN KS. The top couple are either at around, or over, halfway there. Good luck to all! PS - We'll give updates on Twitter about once a week - stay tuned...

  23. TONY - waze is currently available on the US Android Market only, which is why you can't find it. Please follow our blog for future announcements...
