Waze API legal

Postby arithelegend » Tue Aug 06, 2019 12:04 pm

I'm not sure if this is the place to post this. The Hebrew forum has an API section, but not here. If there is a better place to get this information, please let me know.

Under what conditions is it allowed to use the (undocumented) Waze REST APIs? (e.g. waze.com/routingManager, rt.waze.com/rtserver) If I get the source code for GPL Waze 2.4 and modify it, can I then not use the app since I am using Waze services from my own app?

Any news regarding this topic?
I also use Waze version 2.4 that is the only one that works (or used to work) on Raspberry Pi. Some weeks ago it stopped working. It doesn't route anywhere (near or far) and gives "Error receiving routes from server" message. In the source code I found that this means it could reach Waze servers but not an "ack" message. Investigating further I found out that the old WebService, which was pointing to http://rt.waze.com/rtserver now tries to redirect to http://rt-old-client/rtserver/. As you can see, there is no domain nor protocol, just the final path. I could not found yet the new URL which points to the right older version Web Service...
