The format of the coordinates waze accepts is useless in geocaching. Decimal and longitude latitude means that I would need to convert coordinates and enter them manually to use waze.

How about the points of interest? Why doesn't waze support it? Every other gps navigation app support POIs.

What POIs does Waze not support? There are landmarks in Waze and it also searchs google, bing foursquare, yelp, yellowpages. What other or type of POI are you desiring?

That's pretty far beyond what the whole point of and the current business case for Waze is. There are already apps for that.

It would be great if waze could at least support calls from other apps with different coordinates system and not the weird decimal longitude latitude that it supports. I don't believe that I am the only one requiring this...
