Ukraine is our latest community to have the gas-prices feature activated and can now update prices and find the cheapest stations around.
We activated the toll-road avoidance option in Mexico, enjoy!
Chile, Germany & Austria are now self-managing communities: They review requests for Area-Management and decide who gets what area.
We've added Galician & Serbian, and users who would like to – can use them for the interface.
We're adding the new, more-advanced version of house-numbers feature to the beta editor, and once we see it's working correctly – you'll be able to add individual numbers to every building.
(We have a few more surprises for the next version, so stay tuned)
In Brazil – we're releasing special carnival goodies.
And especially for Valentine's day - you'll find our romantic Valentine's goodies in every country!
We have an upcoming meetup in the USA in March, we'll be meeting the local champs and discuss the hot topics for Waze & the community.
Community & Social
Israel is in the process of moving from it's own old server and joining the international server (this might cause some confusion in the scoreboards for a couple of days).
It will allow the Israeli users to use the new map editor (they've been using the old cartouche so far), as well as make it easier for travelling in/out between countries. Mazal Tov!
New Facebook community -page for our friends in El Salvador. Give them some love (or “like”).
And another one for our Latvian community.
