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...

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.

Don't worry thetapeworm if you take a look at the main European Schedule post in the Announcements section, you'll see that you won't lose any points "when" the UK maps are installed, they'll just be replaced with official coordinates and you'll be able to gain more points by driving the roads to confirm they exist and have then been verified.

The delay is very frustrating and any update Waze would be appreciated :D

Hi Fellow UK Wazers,

I've been in touch with Waze via their Twitter Account (@waze) and I've been updated regarding the UK Base Maps, it's not the response we all want but it's a response nonetheless...as follows:

“@waze: @Coveycom Checked in on UK basemaps. The response is that we are waiting for many things to happen which is delaying the process.”

Followed by:

“@waze: @Coveycom Looks like it will take us some time to use them. I'm afraid that's all I have"

Like I said...it's not the answer we'd of liked but at least we know where Waze is at.... I'd like to see the map installed so I can recommend the app to more friends & get more users using the service.

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.

I agree - the lack of information is somewhat frustrating.

Yeah - 2 months here - and some others have put in much more than me. I doubt that anything will be overwritten as such - it is more likely to be a validation and correction of whatever is there and then filling in (hopefully most of) the blanks. My understanding is that nothing will be changed unless it is obviously wrong and that new roads will appear dotted for validation.
