Six months ago, Philadelphia was showing 700 on a good day. It's a combination of natural growth, the Apple maps issue, and the top-rated local ABC affliliate using it for traffic reporting. When I'm driving around now, probably 20%+ of the users having a group shield is showing their logo.

It also helps to have a good core of dedicated, knowledgeable local editors. If new users are presented with a quality map, they're more likely to stick around.

Over this past week I've been seeing 4000-5000 in Philadelphia and 9000-10,000 when I cross the bridge into New Jersey. 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.)

This is actually why I questioned it...I guess it's splitting hairs, but it's the "Philadelphia-Camden-Wilmington, PA-NJ-DE-MD Metropolitan Statistical Area" which includes 5 counties in New Jersey. I just find it odd that the "Philadelphia" & "Wilmington" areas are combined on Waze while the "Camden" area is separate AND gives numbers 2-3x that across the river. The 5 counties that make up the NJ portion of the MSA don't even equal the population of Philadelphia County. Is it possible that all of NJ is combined together? I get similar numbers when I cross into Mercer County in both the Trenton & Princeton areas.

It really doesn't matter, other than it makes the sixth largest MSA look like it has terrible Waze penetration when I don't think that's the case at all.

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.

In the UK we don't automatically get these stats but scrolling around this morning I managed to count 4 Wazers, 0 reports and 0 jams in the whole of South Wales!

189 in Charlotte NC at 5:49PM. Our map is very mature.

I tried to check closer to 5:00, but of course it couldn't connect to the server...

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.

Is it possible to remove this maximum and see all of them?
