Both the iPod & the iPad Wi-Fi only versions do not have an actual GPS chip in them, they rely on other methods to determine your location. You will need an external GPS device for Waze to work properly.

The iPod doesn't really support the app, not the app doesn't support iPod. You cannot have a GPS navigation system without GPS, so if your device doesn't have GPS, well, then... you're kinda out of luck. Except for using an external GPS unit as Andy points out.
