Congratulations!

Waze has been innovative in many ways and has clearly become the leader in social mapping. I'm glad that you've all been rewarded for all your hard work and vision.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Joining the Google community will only help Waze in the long term and I look forward to seeing how this evolves.

Could Waze now use the maps of Google?
Thanks

If I'm not wrong, in GMM if you need to delete a road that does not exist anymore, you have to delete it, then some users must aprove this change, and after some days you will can make adicional changes, if it is necessary. Changes in Waze are much quicker than in Google Maps.


Then you need to do more edits. 99% of the edits I make are live within 5 minutes. I think it's better that peer review takes place. I've made changes on WME where the road layouts don't now match aerials and had them reverted by a lower rank as it didn't match the aerials.

And I can add house numbers and NAMES and can search for them - handy in the dark.

it would be good if we get better aerials plus the ability to view older ones , like in google earth.

I somehow have a feeling that a rebranded app will come out of this acquisition in the sometime future. I don't think everything from Waze will merge into the Google Maps app except for traffic data perhaps for right now.

The ideas have been posted above but we have to wait and see what really happens within a year from now.

I like what you did there, I would love to use my Nexus 7 more often when I'm out and about.

For my thoughts, congrats and thanks for the blog post with keeping us as the community in mind. Glad we get to keep that magic rug under our feet still and not have it pulled out from underneath.

I am looking forward to better POI capabilities, which may subdue some of the UR about wrong locations.

However, I think the best future for waze is to replace navigation part of google maps. :)

I also hope for Google aerials! Right now, half of Sweden has no aerials at from zoom level 2 and higher.
