I've seen Map Problems come up before the changes go live. I saw it a lot a few months back when the updates were only coming every 30 days or more. I was able to catch a few things that a new inexperienced editor did before they ever hit the client maps.

Shame they cant use google maps (due to terms of service violations) to keep maps mostly accurate (not sure if they can use openmaps or not though http://www.openstreetmap.org/ .. some other gps systems are using this).


Google Maps are OSM edited by the end users also, although via moderation or some other 'security' features. These same issues can occur with Google Maps and OSM.

The map and routes are subject to editing problems and vandalism. There are few protections against this. We have been lucky so far that there have not been widespread issues. This is surely a negative of using a navigation solution that is based on community map updates.

I suspect that if we start to have more problems Waze will be forced to implement a better system to protect the map. They tend to wait until things become a problem before taking action.

The challenge for Waze is how to protect the map but not to prevent community map editors with good intentions from contributing.

Ermm...not only is this an old thread, but I think you may be subjecting yourself to excessive narcotics while reading comics.

Report the username to Waze.

OSM uses changesets that can be rolled back. Waze doesn't have anything like it. We should take notice, they're not the best Open Source map for nothing!

You need to look at the UK, Netherlands and Brazil. All have a base map.

Probably you buggers stealing our CPU time ;-)

We have some issues here with one or two specific users editing user A, stupidly and user B, destructively. Both messaged, user A stopped editing, user B continues to F things up, and despite contacting Waze 3 times (4 different MegaEditors here have problems with him), they seem unwilling or unable to do anything except to say "let us know if it continues". Well I have a few times, when are we going to see results?
Hate to say it, but you know how protective we all get, but when it's seemingly on purpose and the company do nothing, it doesn't bode well for them or us and is extremely disheartening after putting so much time and effort into it.
