These both happened to me for the first time today - There were two waze users travelling the opposite direction to me on the same road this afternoon within 2 minutes. The numbers of users in the UK are definitely on the way up now 8-)

- Have you actually ever been re-routed because of a traffic report someone else generated?
- Have you actually tried to use Waze to route you somewhere other than your normal commute, and have it work?

Last week - somebody popped up 100m away from where I was sitting in traffic and said hi via chit chat

Hi,
unfortunately now and as I think some time in the future my answers are and probably will be:
-No
-No
-No
-No

Of course I have recorded and edited most the roads here myself and there are great white parts in the real North of Germany remaining not been driven by anyone yet... there are not even Arials here :o

Regards
Peter

  • There was another guy "0.3 miles away" from me on the street I was on just two days ago! It's happened before, as well. Finally starting to get a userbase here.
  • I'm not sure, actually. My driving is generally against traffic, so it's not so bad.
  • Nope, I've seen "your route will be 8 minutes longer due to new traffic information", though.
  • All the time. My top priority was to have the Interstates and then all thoroughfares through the city fully operational, and I pretty much reached that point a few months ago.

I can just answer Yes to that first question, and that was the other day!
But I can see by the rate the roads are growing around here that there are plenty going on! When I first started wazing at new year I was alone here in my town... hardly any roads at all and now everytime I check the livemap new parts have been mapped :D
