Regarding the voice part - if you are able to record the prompts and send them to us - we can load them so that everyone can use them. Right now we recorded a basic set, but the infrastructure supports adding more voices, so if anyone has the capabilities to record in decent quality and can add female voice or prompts in other languages - we have no problem adding it.

The initial installation comes with English and once you change the language it should download the relevant items only and not all the language files.

I would like to see:


-Offline logging, so that you can upload later when you find a wireless network or get back home. Roaming costs in Europe are just plain stupid, and we have tiny countries and are therefore often abroad.

-Possibility to do more regarding the maps from the client.
Just a few simple things like adding names to roads, change road type, change city and so would help a lot.
These would be a great update!

Hi motech! many of the items you are listing are in the works or on our to do lists.
- clickable items on the screen - in the upcoming version if you click on a wazer you'll see their user info... rank points when they joined....Also events on map are clickable (they always were, but not friendly enough). In a future version we plan to allow you to ping a user with a question.

- facebook integration - definitely. we are looking into implementing it via facebook connect. i really like the implementation here http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ (if can be implemented via mobile) as it allows for two imporant things: 1. to automatically post on one's wall. 2. to view your what your facebook/waze friends are up to.

- We are adding the directions list. It will be part of a version that includes alternative routes to your frequent destinations. It's there. THe ability to re-route manually maybe a bit more complex. I believe that as map gets better you won't need to do that.

- Yes - landscape mode -- no explanation needed - true. coming soon too.

Please keep comments and ideas coming. thanks
