Of course it's my opinion, such is the nature of a forum. And I understand the convenience of having the two services interlinked but the foursquare app is so much nicer than it was a year ago whereas the waze implementation is so basic. I guess it's more the users threatening to quit waze without it that I'm bemused at.

I definitely think that it would be much more useful to place report of "camera" under "map issue" option and bring 4Sq back.

Currently many users are unaware of what camera report really does and that causes:
1. Police report's lost - instead of creating proper police report immediately visible to others we got unapproved speed cam in WME. We are loosing very valuable data!
2. Tons of useless speed cams in WME.

Devs, pls think of it.

Edit. Now I found Alan posted the same on previous page

I'm quite unhappy with the "NO CHECK=IN", my family & friends have battles using waze & also our check=ins. I sure hope waze reconsiders this button. Maybe they should offer a version with foursquare check in & one without. The programming is already in place for both. I love my waze but not happy with them at the moment.

Did you read anything? Check-in is still available, just not from the Report menu.

I too was very disappointed to see the dedicated foursquare check-in button replaced by a road closure button. I live in rural California and use the app to check-in on foursquare and report hazards, traffic and police as well as check-in on foursquare... seems a problem for more than a few... am still waiting for the speedometer to not be covered up by the the main report icon on the droid dna... if I had an option I'd be gone..

it is possible to hide speedometer: settings - display - speedometer (checkbox)

Opposite problem: alerts cover the speedometer for the user.

I found this Update Request today on the map editor:

"I can't check into Foursquare on this new version".

I'm very disappointed with how Waze has handled this feature.

i also miss this button on better accessible place too. My opinion is that this is really bad decision to end with 4sqr (for me its real reason to change placement of 4sqr button).

foursquare app is so much nicer

..and this is funny try..

Waze already got lot of users due cooperation with 4sqr and for now i think that they plan and want to quit this friendship (this process already started with move 4sqr button to somewhere on hidden place in menu).
