Taking this a bit further, perhaps Waze can provide configurable data fields on the map display. We can customize it to show whatever information we want (ie, elevation, date/time, speed, heading, etc..) As smartphone gets larger, these information on the edge of the display should not obstruct any view and would definitely make the app/display more interesting to look at.
Of course when driving into the mountains Waze usually loses nearly all usefulness as very few mountain areas have cell coverage needed for waze to operate correctly, yes it can be used by pre-laoding the maps but not as well, it is a commuter app that is it's primary purpose and goal in life. I use waze almost exclusively for navigation, the one exception is anytime I am heading into the mountains, I pull out my Tom Tom as well as it works far better never needing cell signals to work.
