I too doubt Waze will consider developing for WP8 until the market share is higher. Tough to warrant throwing money at a tiny market. That being said, I really hope a Waze client is developed soon! It is one of the few things I miss on my Lumia 920 from my old iPhone, though not enough to switch back. The tethering is one option, but carting two phones and enabling the tethering every time I drive is just too much extra hassle. Oh well, Nokia Drive is just as good at navigating but I miss reporting traffic!

I upgraded to the Nokia Lumia 920 also. Great phone.

If Waze isn't going to support WP8 I may switch over to the Garmin app or Nokia Drive.

* Edit *

I just tried Garmin StreetPilot and it's rather terrible. They do have the more expensive version but I'm not sure about paying that price on unknown quality.

It looks like Nokia Drive is the only descent nav app on WP8 but it falls short.

Was unsure whether to start a new thread, or add here.
Just want to add another request/plea for Waze on WP8. About to switch from iPhone 4 to Lumia 920 and this is also one of my big ones. I figure the more of us post, the more we show a rice interest which will hopefully get the ball rolling faster. I've used Nokia Drive and it's ok for very basic Nav, but it's not intuitive and it lacks the lie traffic etc that we've all grown accustomed to with Waze

Please Waze team - WP8? Give us an official update?? Throw us a bone?? Is this a non-starter or something that is being actively pursued?

I think that's rather unlikely. Waze's map editing toolkit runs best under Chrome, not Internet Explorer. The Waze client is not available for W8.

Both of those indicate to me that MS has not provided funding to Waze. Otherwise, there would have been a push to migrate both to MS-preferred platforms.

Is there public information to the contrary?

From what I have read around here, I don't think Waze is continuing to develop for the BB platform.
