I have confusion over this. After using Waze for quite some time, I am still unable to see any other wazers going in the same direction as myself. I really have two questions:

1) Why can't I see other wazers going in the same direction? ( I can see other wazers going in the opposite direction)

2) Why do I only see a few wazers (their icons) at a time when there are thousands of them nearby or I am in a metropolitan area?

***** It appears that answers to both of these questions have already been offered. Security, updating, space, etc. are all reasons. *****

The position of the icons for other Wazers on the map is generally about 5 minutes out of date and only includes a percentage of actual users.

Although 5 minutes old, the positions shown in the client are updated quite frequently: if another user drove up the same road as you 5 minutes ago, you may see the icon just ahead of you and it will keep "moving" in front of you as you drive along.

How often quickly are the other waze users on the map updated. Just curious as I often wonder which car is also using waze.
