AWARDS!
Waze has been selected as App of the Year for iPhone in the App-Store for 2012!
It was chosen by the App-Store editorial team and we're honored to be selected.
We're thankful to all our users who helped us get this amazing award and we hope that with your help – we'll be App of the Year in 2013 again!

Self-Management
Luxemburg is now operating under “Self-Management” - their local community now assigns new AM or grants more area to old AMs, as-well as CMs.

Toll Roards
Wazers in Ireland can now avoid toll-roads thanks to their hard work in mapping each and every toll-road in their country and thus getting the feature activated, enjoy!
To activate it, simply go to the main menu, select “settings”, then “Navigaion” and approve the “Avoid toll roads” option.

Community & Social
Our friends in Thailand opened up a new Facebook page – Thai Wazers.
Show them some love.
