You are not a lawyer, and know the german law and law system only from second source.
So, please, stop deciding what is in the best interest of the German community and the German drivers. Garmin and Tomtom as the market leaders keep selling their a.. off with navigation solutions which include "hazard areas" free or as a premium, with noone questioning their ethics.
I'm not against you, quite the opposite. I'm trying to put myself into their shoes and understand their panic mode. They've already stated there are backups and that they are investigating the subject. With layers involved (and google), then there will be even less communication than usually. I'm trying to compare this situation with the failure on the Facebook pages and hope that with time and letting the panic settle down they will come down to their senses and analyze the stuff with proper facts, legal advice, and the community requests. Waze still has a small company's mindset, where they can't afford to be liable if something wrong happens. Weren't you around or know the story about the panic when people used the google maps layer?
I don't know your background, but one thing is being a driver using waze, the other is owning or working for a company and knowing your responsibilities and legal liabilities.
Now back to the subject, the problem is not "me knowing the law from second source". It's even the professional layers themselves not understanding it. Or better, the law is quite clear - everything is forbidden, even if the device is not being used and turned off, € fine, points and device confiscated -, but then it's not applied at all in practice, which is a weird thing to happen on such a country like Germany with so many enforced rules.
So it's all a question of heresay - the law says no, the community says yes, the concurrent products says "maybe, why not". I'm sure it's now all up to the layers, not waze anymore.
I don't want Waze to remove the cameras. But I surely don't want to risk again driving in Germany and lose my device to the Polizei because I have Waze or some other radar app installed.
To show I'm with you, I've been asking over and over again for a client/backend enhancement to allow enabling and disabling certain alerts and reports, per country and user based. In my case I wanted to disable redlight camera reporting for Portugal because legally we won't have any ever. Once having this feature would solve this issue - the server could disable the cameras and police (alerts and reporting) when entering Germany, but then users could reenable the feature at their own responsibility. For switzerland the server could push the disable command with the flag "can't be user enabled".
