I go to see their live maps at the website. Many area is blank and no road. I think sygic & the other software is better than this gps software.
benson208 what you said is true,
however have you tried it. It has chat, report function that will divert traffic if there is a traffic jam in your route as reported by other user or it can automatically reported via 3G.
The map is depend on user contribution and it will grow as you use just like malfreemaps/malsing few years back. The beauty here is that you are able to plot there and then with your mobile phones (no special logger needed, not even a Nuvi
) and report send track/report at anytime you feels like it. This way, the map will grow very fast because it will not depend on mappers to do it after compiling the data.
It will also allow you to report any problem with the map as you use it live.
I have never seen such a software before, I am hoping Google would hv done it, but I guess this Waze team beat every one to it.
Imagine, this software and map is free worldwide and I travel to few asean countries over this last few weeks and I can use it on the spot after download the map over wifi.What do you think of the impact it will have on Garmin, Papago, Tom Tom and the rest... its scary for them.
