I had a similar response from @waze

"@mattyb_71 We would love to. a lot of delays holding us back"

... again not much use, but a response none the less

yeap, it's hard to recommend this app to friends if the map has not been updated. I can see many new users around me who joined for few days and never see them again.
I believe waze is working hard on this issue. Don't lose heart :!:

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 dont want to do any edits to the map in fear of all my work being overwritten anyhow with this impending update. :?:


Having spent a full week creating most of my area from scratch I'll be rather annoyed if this does happen, enough to go back to TomTom and Google Maps on my device in frustration :)


Waze has some good functions TomTom, Google Maps and Nokia Ovi Maps don't have (not yet ;) ) That's why I'm still using it. But waze can't update the map in short period. There is no point for us to use it. Apprecipate that Waze can update us shortly.

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.

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

I agree - the lack of information is somewhat frustrating.
