Hi Editot, Waze confirmed me that Hong Kong is included in the fix. Hope we will see the implement shortly ;)

on paper , yes Hong Kong is part of china, but it's better to divide it on Country

*china drives on left, HK's Right
*no way a normal tourist could cross the boundary by self driving
*even for me, i only tried 2 times, with getting permits in 2 months advance and a huge fee...
*honestly, i wont use waze in China, china's road changes frequently and only waze could provide on names is mandarine "pingyin" english spelling...which is certainly no good for either tourists or local.

editot you're in HK?

As usage develops across China you may find it easier to separate its many Provinces into similar "states".

A quick update, I was advised by waze recently - confirming Leo's earlier comments - a change is in the works. About 3 months or so. Watch this space.

Hong Kong has her own country field now, i.e. Hong Kong (China).

Start from now on, please change all segment with Hong Kong (China) in the country field.

This is great news. Hopefully Waze may now be working in a script to remove ", Hong Kong" from City names. Started work on Clear Water Bay and Sai Kung already. Also adding the Chinese name.
