Holiday treasure hunt wrap-up and best wishes for the new year!


As we move into 2010 it's getting pretty exciting over here at waze. A number of influencers are starting to take note of what we're bringing to the table and we’ve got some really committed users who just seem to love the app. In fact, we’re happy to report that the holiday treasure hunt came to a successful end on January 1 and we received tons of positive feedback from our contest winners.

Here’s just a bit of what the folks who participated in the contest had to say:

• Thanks for the cool (and fun) gps software. I see great things in its future!
• I'm so stoked to have won. I heard about this app from a friend and tried it out on a trip into town and OMG it was so fun chasing down snow flakes and even a candy cane. It made our errand running a heck of a lot of fun.
• I was surprised when I drove over a chest and got the message that I had one something. That is very cool.
• I read an overview of the Waze and am quite excited. I would like to be part of the Waze community and contribute to the map corrections , place identification etc..
• Just have to say my gf not only won a prize too, but since she is wazing around so much now she has gone from 6 K points to 36K +. Her goal is to beat me!!!
• Thank You! And thanks for a great app, Waze is awesome!
• Am enjoying the play built into Waze. Keep up the good work!
• By the way, I'm loving using Waze. It is not only really useful due to the traffic updates from other users, but it is also a lot of fun.
• Thank you very much for what you guys at Waze are doing. It is a great service and it is wonderful you could figure out a way to make it free. Best of Luck!
• Thanks, and I LOVE Waze and I'm telling all my friends to try it.
• Thanks! I think Waze has a lot of potential and I'm trying to do my part.
• Thank you so much! The treasure hunt made our trip to KC so much more fun!
• Thanks guys, that was a fun little promo, I actually almost raced another waze user to that chest, haha, they were about .5 mile away from it heading right at it.

And that's just a fraction of the feedback we got! Really nice stuff...

Anyway, below you’ll find a list of all the contest winners, and what they won. Big ups to you guys and thanks to everyone for your active participation in the holiday treasure hunt.

Looking forward, all of us at waze want to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a wonderful 2010. We’re looking forward with a lot of optimism and hope you are, too…

  1. Awwww! I saw one of those treasure chests but when it said 0 points I decided not to go out of my way to get it... DOH!! :( BTW, great idea for handing out phone mounts, I think that helps keep everyone's eyes on the road and hands on the steering wheel! =)

  2. I love waze! Haha one of my quotes showed up there! Love the feeling of belonging to something bigger and helping speed up my commute and those of other wazers too!

    WOO! Go Waze in 2010! I got a feeling it's going to be a huge year! Look how much happened in late 2009!

  3. Where can I find information on the waze phone mount?
