Has anyone heard anything from Waze about whether (and when) this might get fixed? The thought of depending on Bing frightens me...

My interpretation: "Google notified everyone that their API was changing, just like foursquare did a year or so ago, but we didn't pay much attention and didn't get our code updated to deal with the new API requirements, so it broke, so we had to remove it."


Thanks! Let's hope they fix it and return Google to Waze. I hope it's not because Bing paid Waze to get rid of Google.

Great translation. I think I'll have to nominate you for localization expert on the solicitation form for experts and coordinators.

Grumble +1

Google gone, contacts search broken on iOS 5, and pop-up ads when stopped that obscure the road. Definitely making me think about which app I want to use.

Google missing for me too...

Can still find intersections using the format "Street 1 at Street 2 City, State" and the results come up in the Waze tab.

It's gone for me, too. It's just awful. Already I'm having trouble finding addresses that were easy to find before with the Google option (which used to be the third option in search after Waze and Yelp). I am very disappointed in Waze. It used to be my favorite Navigation app, but with Google disappearing as a search option, I can see I am going to have to start using other apps or go back to printing out a hard copy of the Google Map prior to leaving the house.
