We have just removed from the map all the speed cameras in Denmark, Switzerland and Germany due to it being illegal in these countries.
Shirli,

as the german coordinator, I write this on behalf of the german community, and I am sure that the community from switzerland and denmark will agree:

Please, reconsider your decision. It is ill-advised on the legal side, and it will hurt Waze's position on the navigation market.

Every navigation software offers speed-cameras or comparable services. Navigon/Garmin decided to warn of "Unfallschwerpunkte" (locations with high potential of accident), and use the existence of a speed cam as an indicator for such locations.

Since every other app offers this service either free or as a premium service, I am sure that the removal of traffic cam warnings will hurt the product in the markets of germany, switzerland and denmark. These three countries are relatively wealthy with a population that is both attractive in direct sales revenue and advertising revenue.

Besides, Waze thrives on the community's effort to improve the maps and services. This surprising "fait-accompli" is a sure way to hurt the community and reduce its contribution.

Best regards,

Detlev

Perhaps it's a silly question but did Waze already talked with local lawyers?

Bad news are better than no news.

This is perfect marketing!

Perhaps they should ask a lawyer. ;) Better someone who could explain where the difference is between France, Switzerland, Denmark and Germany. Not based on feelings.

I think Waze should thank these users. Best example are restaurants. Complaining customers are like gold and customers they never will come back with any notice could be your dead.
