Waze joins Google
Good news. This can be a huge step for us all!
What would be the incentive for Waze editors to join the Google "community"? I got a free nav app from Waze, at least, and I don't need to compound my map-making addiction with more work. I don't expect to see any merging -- except for the ads, of course.NorfolkMustard wrote: My expectation: waze editors invited to join existing google map maker community.

Totally agree with you Jeff. these two communities coming together has mind blowing potential.jeffcarp wrote:Thank you for the update Shirli. If you have two customers, one that heavily edits in Google's editor and one that heavily edits in the Waze editor, will each of their efforts help the entire community going forward? In other words, if I add a road in Google that also isn't in Waze, does my effort help the Waze community and vice versa? If it does not, I think it would be a squandered opportunity that could come from this acquisition. The collective community together can create a much more accurate map than the divided community can when kept separate.
Absolutely! we want to hear more from you, so we can know exactly what is going on, thank yoy ShirliWeeeZer14 wrote:Thank you for the updates Shirli. And I think the biggest request we all have is to simply continue posts like this and keep the lines of communication open. When we don't hear anything we let our imagination fill in the blanks
