European Map Update Schedule - Any UK update possible?

Postby coveycom » Mon Jun 21, 2010 10:20 pm

Hi

just wondered if there was any update for UK Wazer's who were hoping for base maps to have been available in May?

I'm assuming the Netherland & Belgium base maps must be nearly completed by now so any update would be great :) The European Map Schedule Thread is locked and so apologies if this info has been posted elsewhere...

I might misunderstand your question, but you do know that you can edit the maps of the UK yourself, right? You are able to edit the areas about a mile (I believe) away from where you drove, or if you want more access, you can request to become an area manager by sending an email to alpha@waze.com.

I've been wondering this too ... since the update was due to start in May I slowed up my map editing. Sadly nothing has happened and here we are a month later with no announcements from the Waze team.

Please don't leave us in the dark. If it's going to be days/weeks/months that's fine but it would be nice to know so I can get on with map editing.

Also ... since iOS4 is out today for iPhone, when can we expect to see a multitasking version of Waze (assuming it's possible). A new version would be most welcome as v1.9.0.0 is not at all stable on iPhone with frequent crashes and has an annoying orientation bug (for those who use it an landscape mode) that manifests after every call or crash.

Thanks Avache but yes I'm aware but like Dave2084 I too have slowed up on my editing knowing that the base map was due soon-ish.

Any update appreciated, Thanks Waze.

Me too, I have held off getting into the map editing because of the imminent update in May, now we are at the end of June. When is this update happening?

Then we UK Wazers can really get into it. :)

Sorry for this delay, but we had a good intention to improve the UK grid upload process by incorporating it with the UK ordinance data which was released. We asked to get the data, told to wait 28 days for its arrival, but it never arrived. Twice. So now we'll revisit the issue and see when we can do it. I'll have to update as to when we can schedule it.
