How could you guys delete all the hard work that we have done in mapping those cameras ???

Have you checked other options before deleting them ?

It seems that the statement that Google / Waze will work even closer to the community was an empty one !

In Switzerland we have several GPS apps that can warn about FIXED radars, not always mobile, such as GPS Navigation 2 (aka Skobbler), Swiss Traffic by mogo.ch, iSpeedCam or Trapster, to name a few. The word "radar" gives more than 1000 results in the Apple app store for iPhone. As far as I know they didn't disable their radar feature.

So why does Waze have to remove this feature above others ? Did you get a legal complaint from any government ?

I don't know about Denmark or Germany but in Switzerland with a bit of luck and direct democracy we could try making it legal :mrgreen: :mrgreen: ( :roll: dreaming)

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

we are examining ways to make Waze compliant with French law as well

Thanks,

Shirli


Shirli,

it would have been nice to discuss this with the community in these countries before taking such drastic measures. Waze has just established channeled community communications.

Best regards,

Detlev

Let users decide themselves, but probably it's the first google strike...
