Feature request: Lookup nearby Wazers

Postby BrutusNL » Wed Feb 10, 2010 7:31 pm

It would be sweet to have an option to lookup nearby Wazers. When driving, my map is kindof zoomed in and looking to see if there are any other Wazers in the area takes a lot of zooming in and out. Would be nice if there was an option to see a list of the closest, say 10, Wazers and how far away they are.

Excellent addition. I just thought this when I was driving this afternoon. Would be cool to have a friendlist, be able to look up friends, see where they are, maybe even be notified if they are in the area and what about being able to msg them directly? Could work the same as comments (which are notified to the original reporter), only then the only one seeing it would be your friend.
How this could work? I get notified my friend is nearby, I send him a comment to meet me somewhere, I can set a 'follow friend' (so the map stays centered around my friend) and I can see exactly where he is (or maybe even his ETA). Wow, wouldn't that be the maximum example of social GPS network???
