Munch new “road goodies” in Waze’s latest challenge

Our friends at Waze are just finishing up their Tweet for Turkeys promo and they already announced a new contest to promote their latest update. Waze is a free turn-by-turn GPS and a great alternative to users who cannot access the new Google Maps Navigation. The service offers 100% user generated real-time maps and traffic information.

If you have never heard of Waze, check out their guided tour.

Waze’s latest contest is called the “Holiday High Points Challenge“. Road goodies have been added to the maps (clearly paying homeage to Pac-Man) in order to encourage users to help correct problem map areas. Winners of the contest will receive Amazon gift cards which should come in handy for the holiday shopping season.

From the Waze blog:

Holiday High Points Challenge

In parallel to the launch of this new ‘road goodie’ version, we invite you to participate in a ‘Holiday High Points Challenge’ between November 25-30, just in time for your Thanksgiving driving.
