Irrelevant. Waze is not "only" for speepcams either. The question is what is it's main function, not what it's called. Otherwise I start selling radar detection devices that can also open beer cans.

So, if waze *believes* there's a legal issue with its speedcam function, then that exactly same issue *would* exist with the Police function. They removed one, hurt the community, but did not remove the other one, e.g they didn't change a single thing about the legal issue they believe they attacked.

That is what is planed to do. But no ETa


Well, planning to let the user decide if she wants to use the speedcam warnings and reenabling those parts of the datasets would be good and major news to all the users who want this feature back. Is this an official announcement you got through different channels than the forums, or is it your personal interpretation of the official silence regarding this matter?

Thank,

With the police icon, you report policemen. They can control speed, or anything else. I dont think it could be forbiden in any country to say "hey there is a policemen here"


It is

Then the country is not compliant with the Human rights european convention that allow you to communicate


It is aloud to report policeman and show them on the map, but it is illegal to have device/application that can worn you in advance about police cameras. So, if Waze implement switcher "on/off" police sound notification it should be enough.[/quote]

On the other hand, they could just decide they have other things to do while we wait. The problem is that some of us might have faith that there is study and review going on. Others may not have so much faith. This communication problem is one that waze could easily solve.

maybe waze is getting shut down slowly so people go back to gnav.
but i remember waze saying, that nothing will change because of the aquisition...

and how long can it take to ask a lawyer about the speed cam thing? half an hour? asking two lawyers just to make sure is an hour on the phone. but it doesn't take over a month, that's for sure
