Could Waze now use the maps of Google?

Congratulations to the Waze team, and really to its users, for showing just how much this product has become useful!

This is going to be an exciting ride!

Congrats to the new Caribbean island mansion owners! (Well, that's what I'd do, anyway.)

To the pessimists, look at the bright side. Now all your drive data will be backed up by the NSA. If you need it restored, just give them a ring. :lol:

I already get annoyed by the Taco Bell ads pushed to my phone, I can only imagine what annoyances are in store for us.

I am not convinced yet nothing will change. Google paid a whopping 1.3 billion dollar. They need to generate money somehow.
Also Waze should not forget that without the community the program wouldn't be as big as it is now.

Hope that Waze will keep its word.

Congratulations Waze team, and especially Ehud!

Use Googles servers and resources for what they're worth. Live map tile refreshes maybe? Overkill perhaps.

Just do me a favour and don't change the name to a mashup like

Waloozle or even worse...

Gaze (lol)

Nice choice of Google over Crapbook though. They would've destroyed this community by poking it to death. Google has previous and plenty of money and resources to throw at this. Use that to your advantage.
