Waze joins Google or Google bought Waze? Although it's quite similar, it's not the same. Will Waze and Google Maps/Navigation live together ? How much time? Let's see.
I will read the whole thread to know if it's already commented.

What kind of bullshit is this, joining google. Its bad enough you sold us out with joining facebook. Who in their right mind would want to join facebook, or google, when they have absolutely nothing to do with this community of traffic monitoring people. If the site needs money, which it doesn't with the adds you are forcing on us now, they could have a updated paid membership which I would happily pay to have the servers working all the time, instead of just part time. No adds, no facebook, and no google. Tell them to go f###### themselves, and remove all interactions with them from this community. Its bad enough facebook sold out all its members, now you want to help exploit this community for the same purpose?

You're pretty well informed about the financial position of Waze! Thanks for sharing.

But I would kindly ask you to keep it to a discussion in a normal way.

Thanks!

Also I think it's a little late to be bitching about it. Google bought the company. Live with it.

Yep. I looked for them, but didn't see any. Didn't see how to report them from GMaps either.
