Sorry, I gave them my friends firstborn son so that Sweden would get it next... ^^


Ok so the bid is one firstborn son. I raise you one pint of beer on top of that for the UK to be next :D


Uhmm... That devalues it, no-one outside the UK likes English beer :D

I think Italy should be next, followed by the Netherlands. These two groups are the biggest Wazers. So serve them in stead of the smaller groups. And with better maps more people will join..

well... if you see it like this instead!

If countries with few wazers get the map updates, it's a higher probability that they will get more new wazers since the basemaps are already done, starting waze and not being able to use it makes most people drop it!
While countries that already have many wazers can manage a bit longer... ;)

Yeah, previously I had to agree with you, but now I've seen the German maps, I have turned around. After the basemap update, there needs a lot of work to be done. Currently a lot of Dutch wazers are updating the maps, it would be a shame if we had to do this again. So, because of the already large established userbase, Netherlands, Italy and UK should have priority!

I think it's fine to start the test of new maps in smaller (as in "with few users") countries. But once they see everything is working fine, they should really move to high-density areas.

I've personally suspended any further editing of the actual map since I've known about this. I know nothing will be lost during the transition, but since we're almost there… I want to wait for the "real deal" and start working directly on that.
