USA Meetup
We had an awesome time meeting with the USA Champs, had discussions about important topics (both for us and for the community).
It was a very educational meeting on our end, as we love to hear what you, the community – are thinking, what's bothering you and how you see Waze.

Here's a picture of everyone who attended:

Gas Stations
The feature is now open in Romania, and our Romanian Wazers can now search for the cheapest gas stations on their way, and update the prices.

Translations
We added the Turkish language to the interface languages list.

We also added Polish voice prompts.
We're not done yet – we're working on several more languages, if you want to help, read up on our Localization forum.
