Waze - Halloween Treats on the Road

waze_halloween.jpg

Waze has a few tricks up their sleeves for the Halloween Season, namely, some Jack-o-lanterns and ghosts on the road for a little eye candy. The mobile app allows users to navigate from point to point while also contributing to the quality of the map coverage.

For those who use Waze, these new icons replace the cupcakes that you used to gobble.

For those who don't Waze, this is is their way of getting people to drive over little used roadways and confirm the location of the roads. By gobbling up the treats, you earn extra points and raise up your status in the Waze community. The more you gobble the treats that are placed on lesser used roadways, the better to mapping becomes and the better the product.

I recently went to NYC from the Boston area and was pretty thankful to all of the folks who reported police traps along the way; thanks.
