The maps on the garmin will be a 1000x better than the waze maps, most of the old inner city roads and suburbs aren't even mapped what so ever so once you need a suburb street or side street waze will be useless anyway whereas the garmin will have all those streets ready to go.


That is very much depending on where you use waze - "here" (the Netherlands), the maps greatly outperform ANY other map. Also in the very crowded and narrow city centers of this country.

+1 also, if there was a 'like' button (which there may be, not looked!) some comments deserve it :)

Out of curiosity, could provide which phone you are using and if you have a network connection when you park at the office?

So you are telling me that points mean more to you than accurate up to date maps that you don't have to pay for? Even google doesn't have roads drawn in some places that Waze does, and google has gone social on their maps too. Why would you pay $70 every six months for new maps that may or may not be as accurate as Waze is or can be? Even at it's worse Waze maps are 2 months old.

I drive ~40 miles each way to and from work with some of that not being connected to the network and I don't lose my mileage when Waze is working right. Are you shutting down your phone when not connected to the network / a wireless router?

Yea Waze has been a bit iffy with getting everything processed in a timely fashion lately. I just finished a 2000+ mile trip, only a small chuck of the places I've been are showing in WME at the moment. A few weeks ago Waze took about a week to display all my drives from a 400 mile trip, it doesn't have any rhyme or reason as to why some of the legs of my journeys show up faster than others, as sometimes it was the shorter trips that are being delayed rather than the longer parts.

Either way, the drives and points do eventually show up, just not always as fast as one would like.
