The official WAZE GPS navigation thread

Postby jm3 » September 25th, 2012, 7:02 pm

As some of us on tuner are now using Waze on our Ios and Android devices and it is a community based GPS navigation system i thought we should have an official thread.

So what is Waze?
http://world.waze.com

Meet Waze - a fun, community-based GPS traffic and navigation app.

Join forces with drivers in your area, easily report what's happening on the road and get turn-by-turn navigation that automatically re-routes you when road conditions change.

That way everybody's commute gets faster and safer. Smart, right?

Duane already set up an official Trinituner group on Waze for us all to join.

So please use this thread to discuss Waze, get support and ask for map updates or advice on updating the map yourself :)

Requesting map updates in sealots. I "paved" a road there today but it didn't turn out too good :lol:
Also requesting that the map doesn't tell me to turn off by Nestlé only to make a uturn back to the highway to head east. Also requesting that it doesn't tell me to make those PH taxi drives on the highway, which is turn off left then make the first right to "technically beat" the traffic light :lol:

I learned a new route through tunapuna today though, that was a fun experience, showing all the village people what a vehicle looks like.

Also requesting spelling corrections for:
Fernandes compound and El Socorro.

There are more but those are the two that comes to mind, was going to do it myself but I find the editing screen too complicated.

That editing screen is real bawls! I tried editing a few things too but it too frustrating. Will try back again sometime.

There's also a feature I can't seem to find, to record a road that "doesn't exist". Drove a few places that has me off the map & can't seem to find that to get it to record the road. Saw it in a video but can't remember which one :/

I use one of these with my apple cable.

Phone on lap or center console because my traffic reports are done when I'm at a stop or crawling.

Do you guys use a mount?
