It's a pity that this part will not be retained.

I agree, Waze POIs are more accurate then the ones on google maps and also i don't find any duplicate POIs. I have used google map maker and its a bit frustrating using that and i have seen many multiple entries for the same place with slightly different names and the old ones which have been requested to be deleted are still there after so many months and years too.

I guess we will have to make all the important POIs all over again.

Replacing the Base-Map in India - Delay

Postby Unholy » Fri Sep 13, 2013 11:18 am

Hi Wazers,

Due to technical reasons, the replacement of the map will be delayed.
The new map will be deployed on Tuesday or Wednesday.

It is expected that the service will continue to function smoothly without any disturbances.

Thank you,

Ori

Chennai looked like this when I started work on it.

Looks like we will be forced to start from scratch in all the Indian Cities. :(
At least the Road categorisation is in place. But will it stay ? :?

I completely forgot about it and was trying to edit and it wasn't working, So editing will begin after the base map is updated, i guess will take a day or two to first analyse the new base map. Now that i am free again these 2 days will be like long months or years.....
