Live Map Upgraded!

Postby redviper26 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 8:32 am

Hey everyone,

We made some exciting changes to the Waze Live map. Besides some UI improvements which make the map easier on the eyes, the main changes are where it counts - simplifying and improving the way users can interact with and implement the map. This is an infrastructure upgrade that will enable us to make additional changes and improvements. So what's new:


    Clicking on the share icon on the bottom right opens a box with the following options:

Embed a map:

    Copy & paste a simple code to add a small version of the map to your site

Share:

    Copy & paste a link that will open the app and navigate to the chosen destination

    Copy & paste a link that will open the Waze Livemap as a web page on the chosen location

This is just the beginning, expect more new and amazing stuff. And as always, let us know what you think.

Thanks,

The Waze team

Great improvement! At last there would be less messing around with links and clicks. This was really brainwashing for regular wazers.

Will the map popup (at a location tap) be again available also in the mobile browser mode? Currently a desktop mode is necessary.

trying to get used to the good new asocial Android 4.xx.0.yyy (on OP-X March-me-Low).

I hope you get back the chance to share the routes.
We also look forward to the possibility of including long-term reporting on the roads.

yes, ability to share livemap routes - ie from point A to B, has been one of the most useful features it had (at least for me).

@redviper26:A to B route sharing is absolutely ESSENTIAL. You have removed the only official/practical tool the community had for accurately communicating with staff about point to point routing issues.

A>B sharing in Live Map is used hundreds of times a day by the editing community. It is such an important feature, I really think a rollback to the old version is imperative, until A>B sharing can be added to the new version.

Having said that, the new features are AWESOME, and thank you very much for all the great work!
