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.

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

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.

Could Waze now use the maps of Google?
Thanks

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.

Here's a video from Google I/O 2013 that occurred mid-May 2013.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=FsbLEtS0uls

It shows Google's current directions and processes as it relates to Google Maps.

You can also request an invite to try out the new versions of Google Maps which are quite different than the current version. Both the mobile and web based versions are getting an update.

Since Waze is now partnered with Google, can there be an option to log in with your Google account and eliminate the temporary username/Facebook login?
