I fell like a mother who have seen her son grown up and followed his dreams and conquer them one by one! 8-)
I'm one of the oldest Israeli community member, and seen it all bloomed from a tiny project to this magnificent outcome.
I'm proud to be a part of waze and had the opportunity to be a part of the ones who have helped to shape the community to as it look today world wide!
I wish Waze and google the best, and hope that the collaboration will be a prosper one and not destrutive to both sides.

These are very exciting news indeed!
We'll do our best to address all your questions here.

Basically, as Noam mentioned - nothing really changes in our workflow and in our work together.

This will waze to grow even faster! Congratulations again


Waze maps and Googles maps stay separated and it is not allowed to use google maps data to edit Waze maps.
However - there is going to be a significant focus on the enhancement of the map editor and new tools will be available to us - yes, that includes google's aerials and street view !


Nice. So I guess that google will only use the real-time traffic info for its maps? But hey good news, we won't have to use bing anymore
