It is very pleasing to see such innovation rising from a small Israeli community project to become a worldwide recognizable success.

We hope you will keep the Waze community spirit living inside Google, and keep improving Waze for us all.

congratulations to EHUD, NOAM and all of Waze team :)

Thanks for the positive, informative update :)

Google aerials are certainly clearer than Bing in certain areas, Australia especially where bing are plagued by cloud cover and bad resolution.

The google road maps are built for real-world accuracy rather than routing simplicity, which is the opposite to waze.

I can't envisage both types of (conflicting) data existing for long, and waze maps are far less complete.

It seems very much a move to stop competition (apple/Facebook) getting a foothold. But they're making noises about a hands-off approach for 3years so the competition/monopolies overseers are less inclined to get involved.

My expectation: waze editors invited to join existing google map maker community. Any improvements in routing algorithms subsumed into gMaps
