Participate in Waze’s Holiday Treasure Hunt!

EnglishScreens

Once you download the new holiday version and get out there on the road, you’ll see yet another cool feature – treasure chests scattered here and there around the map. What’re those treasure chests all about? Well, they’re part of the waze Holiday Treasure Hunt, silly!

From December 17, 2009 to January 1, 2010, keep your eyes peeled for treasure chests along your daily commute for your chance to win!

Driving over these chests opens them, revealing anything from bonus points and waze goodiebags to Amazon giftcards! You’ll get a pop-up after you drive over them, telling you if you’ve won anything, or if the chest has been emptied by another wazer already. If you're a winner, you’ll get an email with instructions on how to claim your prize shortly thereafter...

Happy treasure hunting, wazers, and happy holidays, too, from all of us at waze!
