You may not have explicitly contributed, but every mile/kilometer you drove helped Waze improve the map... anytime you drove through a turn that wasn't known allowed a map editor to make a correction.
I'm quite sure that if you use Google's option, you're most likely making the same contributions...

The potential for this app is insane, and i sometimes wonder if they even have a clue as to what they can envolve into. With that said, lets give them some ideas as to what they can do with Waze to achieve a mass following. I will add one thing I think would be cool is an Information POP up for each city you go thru of how many break ins, murders, rapes ect would be more than interesting but still functional. What school are falling apart, Unemployment rate, number of pot holes, number of accidents. Number of police cars , the bottom line is wazers our an interesting breed of wanting functional information to make us more successful and powerful and they have a big enough jump to be the leader in an revolutionary new way of thinking and gaining a following that would put FB to shame. But in all honesty a Billion dollars could make a company go stupid. Lol
