for myself, I really do not need deeper social functions (e.g. pickup, share ride/location), which (in my case) would be used once per couple of months, but I prefer to have core functionality running stable, without bugs and tuned.
I would also prefer to invest developers/designers time to get user interface tuned up (menus, sub-menus) from both - graphical (avoid scrolling in main menu, order of icons in portrait and landscape in main menu, etc.) and logical (grouping and order of menu items) point of view.


That is also my feel !
I would prefer core functionnalities working well, and social features coming when everything is perfect !
Many requests are pending on core... (UI, reports radius, stability, under tunnel estimation drive, and many other most very usefull).


completely agree

the problem is: who is a target user of waze?

1 -teenager who report everything on facebook, every deal, every thought, every breath? but young teens doesn't have a driving permit and doesn't have a car ... (and than... why properly facebook? in some countries there are other socials that are popular, but not facebook)
2 - mature person, who are working and need to get the traffic battle everyday, to get home first avoiding traffic, or probably professional drivers who are looking the best route to reach a destination?

i think that waze first of all is used by the second kind of persons

yes, social networks are fun, it is comfortable to use "share a root" with family, with friends... but how facebook is related to a family? and meetings with friends doesn't happens every day..
this is not a first neccessity of wazer users. First of all waze have to improve navigation tools .

Can you (or someone else) give me some examples of such countries? We'd like to understand this situation better.


Russia - they almost doesn't have fee-pay roads. Highspeed free roads are really few. Majour parts of roads are City and Intercity

Italy - there are fee-pay highspeed roads (Autostrada), "Tangenziale" - bypass road, speed allowed as on highspeed but is free (no payment), next level is intercity roads.

usually people wish to avoid payment roads,
if someone doesn't want to take a fast "bypass" road (for example as tourist), probably it is possible to add to settings the navigation preferences:
- the shortest way
- the fastest way
- touristic way (longest way that pass in all city-centers)

this way you don't need to make confusions in road types :)

some other thoughts about route sharing:
personally, i would like to share my route with :
- every day - with someone who is waiting for me at home (husband/boyfriend, children, granny.. etc) so with my family
- from time to time - with some friends

my facebook friends are: friends who may live in other city, work colleagues, some people whom i know but not very friends... and i don't need to share my route with them

so instead of facebook, isn't it better to create an own waze list of persons (may be modify already existing groups) to share a route or location? (as soon as waze is social by itself?)

so i suggest to add "favourites" persons to be shared location / route and may be a groups of persons (both waze users and not)

Google latitude offers 24/7 shared location features without having to have Waze running in the background and I use that to allow family members to see where I am on my route to/from work - it 'just works' without me having to do anything other than have my phone switched on.


ok, google latitude is not bad... but as soon as we discussing about waze...

Missing translation. These strings are not on language file.

The pick-up text send by mail/sms is half translated.

New menu isi too small and we need to scroll in portrait mode to access bottom buttons.
It was better on previous beta.
