What makes Waze great is its community.

Google is a wealthy man who took the woman with the children she got from a previous marriage. I hope he's not interested in just banging her and leaving the children behind.

The motivation of editors is about being part of a project aiming at making everyone's life easier and if brilliant entrepreneurs who had the original idea could monetize it, good for them.

No closed system. No censorship. Don't bleed Waze and toss away the empty shell once we'll have crossed the 3 years limit.

Grongrats to waze and google association,

but what will happen to the map editors ??
google got his own crew and editors for the google map and waze got his own way that is far more permissive then google that ask up to 1 month before some major adjustements on the map !!

like for 3 months ill change an high-way exit into an entrance for road work,
the edit will be in a day for waze and google will never admit it !!

what will happen to the edit points ??
i got near 1k edits on google and 10k on waze.. will they merge ??

its great for waze, but what will happen ???

Thanks to give us a free map, but will we keep it as our map, or a mess that takes forever to edit !!

Didn't know the UK had this much influence (not that I understand how much influence this is) on the deal.

At least there is no server excuse for not having speed limits anymore. So waiting new features :P
