I think it would be better and more usefull to some users if they could choose whether they wanted the security of delayed reporting of their position. I originally found Wazw while some friends and I were looking for location apps to use for a sort of "Tag" game using GPS. The delay prevents Waze from even realisticly being a consideration for that. It's still my favorite GPS type application and I love the idea of user-contributed "Social GPS", but for some of us who don't mind loosening the security a little, wish we could opt out of any intentional delays.

I was wondering about that. I have seen a few users that were seemingly right on top of me and I couldnt see a car at all around me :)

They are actually in the black helicopter silently hovering above your car.

The display of other wazers is delayed by 2-5 minutes for both security and data compression reasons.
