Waze usage is growing locally. Just now, 33 in my home city. Up from 5-10 when I first posted. In the city north of me, I saw 92 on Friday. Up from 35ish on avg.

4am ? These are likely the diehards verifying edits or gobbling new roads while the spouses are asleep... ;)

That may be true to a certain extent (especially Manhattan), but it is so densely populated the number should really be higher. I would think 8 million people within the 5 boroughs & 22 million in the metro area would yield more than 900 Wazers? Not sure, however, whether they have some kind of radius count or if it's a cumulative number for an entire metro 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.

http://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php ... 27#p101027

Is this perhaps yet another cool iPhone toy that we underprivileged droiders don't get to play with? Or is it something open only to big-city areas?


I'm an Android user and the data shows up on my phone. It must be a metro area statistic.

At 5:30pm yesterday, I saw the highest number for the Philadelphia area...489 Wazers. I think I'm going to obsess over tbis number every day now. :ugeek: :ugeek:

It is anytime possible to selectively hide any of them. But it is not possible to show them, if the system is not willing to cooperate.

It is definitely nice to see wazers on the map again. Though one congested corridor I saw was difficult to read due to all tue wazers and traffic jam reports in the area. 5/805 split for the SD folks out there.

I saw 13.000 wazers on the Paris radar this morning.

7000 was a maximum before the bug.

Not sure why they're separate, but I suppose there's a reason. Either way, these numbers are basically double what they were less than a month ago, and 4x what we were seeing 9 months back.

NJ is split amongst a few US Census Bureau Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and that is what the Waze areas are based off of. (Or was it is the Combined Statistical Areas, CSAs? Same impact either way.)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Metropolitan_Statistical_Areas

But you shouldn't be leaving the Philadelphia–Camden–Wilmington MSA (or the Philadelphia-Reading-Camden CSA) unless you're crossing the bridge at Trenton. I suspect they're using the CSAs as 1) the numbers would be bigger (look better for marketing) and 2) I commute from the Baltimore-Columbia-Towson MSA to the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria MSA (while staying in the Washington-Baltimore-Arlington CSA) without typically seeing any changes in the numbers.


Exactly...and I notice the higher numbers are similar regardless of whether I'm crossing into NJ around Trenton or if I'm farther south in the Burlington/Camden/ Gloucester County areas. I'm currently sitting less than 1000 feet from the Delaware River, so I cross the river in both areas at least weekly.
