One game-like aspect of the service allows users to score points by being the first to drive down a road depicted on the map with small gray dots.
And as they do so, their avatar becomes a Pac-Man-like figure that "gobbles" up the dots.
Waze gets its base maps from the U.S. government, but it is not guaranteed to be accurate. As a result, many roads are "unconfirmed" until a Waze user drives it.
It's not entirely clear what Waze users will be able to do with the points they earn, but one use might be to gain additional administration access over the maps.
