"functional" if changed to yes.
Same applies to changing the ID numbers of Hazards shown in the client :).

Being able to change prefs is different than the client actually using the prefs. They could have internalized those settings for good reasons. Sorry to be picky, but there is a difference in what you're asking could be done vs. the effect of doing it. :geek:


No worries Alan :). I thank you for the explanation :). I've read across the forum several times, that 3.x. code has not been released etc. etc. (not sure on current status), so I thought it has something to do with it....

What was the point of doing that? 3.0 source isn't even available yet.

Not according to the devs. There was quite a big base rewrite to be able to use all the extra features etc, but that may be to stir up interest.

You certainly can, on Android at least.

Even though the client is GPL, Waze are not obligated to release the source within any timeframe, although leaving it too long 'may' be considered a breach of the licence as they're required to contribute source back to the community. I may email them about this tomorrow.

They haven't. It wasn't a complete rewrite. Its still based on code from Ehud's roadmap for linux. If it contains even a single line of GPL code it MUST be GPL itself and as above, must be released immediately or hosted on something like github.

Yeah but I'd bet there's still GPL code in there, but that's not for me to pursue.

That's already been said about the possibility of there still being gpl code in the product, but there's no way of knowing.

Indeed. If it's their licence they can do whatever the hell they like with it. I know I've seen some projects change the game at times, but all previous source before any licence change should be available.
