Next update on INTL maps?

Postby Olestas » Wed Sep 12, 2012 8:20 am

I noticed, that NA maps are updating quite often now. How about INTL servers? Last update was not even noticed in status.waze.com. And what about next updates?

I'm guessing that the new database infrastructure has been successfully deployed on the US server, which would explain the improved update frequency. However, the INTL server is probably still using the old infrastructure.

I wish Waze would communicate more, but obviously that's not going to happen. :roll:

I gave up using Waze until it updates the map more often.
I don't see the point having to wait eternally to see the changes.
Good luck!

You don't see the point, because you don't know the backend of Waze. If it is possible to have a more frequent interval, I'm sure that will be done. The north america infrastructure has recently changed. This is the first step to get back to a stable update process. If all went well, this can result in a daily update, just like a long time ago. Rest of the world gets this update as soon north america is done.

The big problem here is not the infrastructure or the infrequent updates on either of the platforms. It's the total lack of comms that makes the editors despondent.
If they have an idea of what to expect, they can likely live with that. If the time frames change, update the community.

If Waze would just realize that managing the community's expectation with frequent status updates, is just as important as managing or fixing problems, they would gain a community that backs them 100%, no matter what...

Agreed. If at least we knew when it would be updated, we would feel more comfortable contributing to the map, for instance.

Still better than up to 3 years for a single road in TomTom. Quit complaining ;-)

Or I can just download OpenStreetMap data with the latest changesets and update i.e. Osmand (Android navigation app) whenever I want.
