Actually, I've met them and I'd say the average age of the Waze corporate people is probably around 30. Either way, that's still nearly 10 years younger than me.


Via my iPhone 3GS.

I know I am exaggerating ;) That thing about not being able to focus close did not hit me until about 45. At first I thought my arms ware not long enough to read restaurant menu then I gave up and started carrying granny glasses. :cry:

Don't do me any favors. You will get there. It's just a matter of time.

Can't say I can see the difference between the two (200dpi doesn't seem to have worked) if I'm honest.

Yes, if it has a GPS and data source.

You don't have to be over 50 to have trouble seeing the screen. I wish there was a solution like this for the iPhone.

I've never tried - can you run Waze on a 10" tablet mounted in your car?
