I think I'll get my wife to turn Waze on while we're out driving and she can track my Wazer and see how often I'm updated.
I've done this before, and depending on speed, it can be miles different. The view of Wazers in the app is also limited to something like 40, so depending on density, you will only see a fraction of actual wazers. This feature is to give a sense of community and be an actual representation of everyone's true location. That would take up way more of everyone's data plan that it already does, impact the Waze servers sending this data, and would significantly slowdown the app if it was trying to update the position of 2000 wazers near you.
