Waze's holiday goodie hunt make the commute home for the holidays fun!


It's that time of year again, and while we all love the holidays, one thing we all can agree upon not loving is holiday traffic. Good thing you have waze, though - to make the trip home for the holidays that much more fun. And you're in luck! This season we're serving up some holiday-themed road goodies to give you a chance to collect extra points as you head to wherever you're going.



The holiday goodie hunt includes little snowflakes worth 2 points, candy canes worth 10 points and the rarest of the rare - santa hats worth a whopping 100 points each! And for those in an exceptionally festive mood, take a moment to switch your navigation prompts over to Santa's voice. To make the switch, visit Settings>General>Prompts and scroll down the list until you find the jolly old guy (Santa prompts are available in English and French only this time around).  Note that it may take a little while for the prompts to download, so make sure to keep the app open until the download is complete. Click below for an example of what you're in for...
