The aerial layer comes directly from bing, though. Or, virtualearth more precisely, which is Microsoft. It could be what you are saying, but that isn't something under Waze's control.
Hmmm. I only noted that while I was looking at one zoom level I did a permalink and the image changed to a completely different shot of that same location. I assume it was more current, but unfortunately is was slightly more noisy (grainy). No matter really, I just had not experience it and thought it was under Waze control meaning it could be slowing down the servers. Maybe not after all.
After I entered the above, I looked again at the location I was editing this morning. My tab was still open and I could see the new low quality image. I hit permalink, and the original image from before was now present (again at all zoom levels). I have no idea what that other view was from, unless it was a Bing Map caching error. I guess Waze is not the only one with map issues.
