Perhaps it's a silly question but did Waze already talked with local lawyers?

They forgot to mention that 'top community members' has to use NanoRep for the communication. :D

Bad news are better than no news.

This is perfect marketing!

Perhaps they should ask a lawyer. ;) Better someone who could explain where the difference is between France, Switzerland, Denmark and Germany. Not based on feelings.

I think Waze should thank these users. Best example are restaurants. Complaining customers are like gold and customers they never will come back with any notice could be your dead.

We have just removed from the map all the speed cameras in Denmark, Switzerland and Germany due to it being illegal in these countries.


Shirli,

as the german coordinator, I write this on behalf of the german community, and I am sure that the community from switzerland and denmark will agree:

Please, reconsider your decision. It is ill-advised on the legal side, and it will hurt Waze's position on the navigation market.

Every navigation software offers speed-cameras or comparable services. Navigon/Garmin decided to warn of "Unfallschwerpunkte" (locations with high potential of accident), and use the existence of a speed cam as an indicator for such locations.

Since every other app offers this service either free or as a premium service, I am sure that the removal of traffic cam warnings will hurt the product in the markets of germany, switzerland and denmark. These three countries are relatively wealthy with a population that is both attractive in direct sales revenue and advertising revenue.

Besides, Waze thrives on the community's effort to improve the maps and services. This surprising "fait-accompli" is a sure way to hurt the community and reduce its contribution.

Best regards,

Detlev

User from Germany here. I want the speed camera functionality back! It is not illegal.

Using a handphone without headset while driving is illegal here. Do you want to kill Waze in Germany because of that overall? It would be reasonable, it seems.

Don't ever remove features that users depend on!
