At some of the peaks, I've seen around 250-280. These days, it's 180-220. That's in the Beaverton, OR (western Portland suburban) area.

Shortly after starting Waze, where the ETA would show when navigating, a small popup will appear for a short time. It is only a NA thing, I think due to definition of "metro areas" from something I read recently.

Isn't that why we have guri? When's the NA stuff gonna be available? Do we need another server?

Fired up Waze at 8:50am to head back to our main office (a little earlier than usual) from New Haven, CT - Waze told me there were over 2300 Wazers Near Me... Needless to say I was impressed... Usually I leave the office around 4am & there is always less than 100 usually less than 50...

Now, how is "Wazers Near Me" actually defined? By State? Within X miles of my current location?

Since we're talking about number of local Wazers...

It seems that Waze just begins to be useful for visually looking at traffic conditions at around 100-150 "near you now" Wazers. Useful automatic traffic avoidance seems to start kicking in around 300-350. From this I would say that critical mass for really working well at rerouting is around 600-700.

Places like SF and LA *should* be outstanding if it weren't for their non-freeway maps being in such bad shape. :evil:
