    I also hope Waze makes it way onto BB10 and by extention Playbook. There is no other app quite like it. It has much more potential than what it does now, it would be a shame to let it go to Apple or to any single minded OS.
    WAZE is more than a turn by turn. It's a community traffic and road condition mapping. I can declare debris on the road, road work, potholes, red light cameras, speed traps, accidents etc... It also monitors my speed and knows I'm too slow for the particular road and asks if I'm in a traffic jam. It then displays this information immediately for all users. I then redirects me based on the information provided by all users. It got me out of parking lot jams on many occasions. Do that Tom-Tom!

    It knows my favorite gas station ( I collect points) and let me know what the price of gas is locally.

    Nobody else comes close...

    They have one. Even though their main page says that they support iPhone & Android. If you go to m.waze.com or their DL page you will see they also support windows, symbian, & BB
    Yes, they do now. I'm speculating that if apple owns it they will make it unavailable to BlackBerry.

    Apple Tried to Buy Waze But Was Shot Down | TechnoBuffalo
    It may sound like good news, but the article points this out:
    So what really happened? Did Apple try to buy Waze or not? Do we even care? As it turns out, according to TNW, Apple did indeed try to buy the startup company, but Waze shot down the offer. Why? TNW said that Waze received several bids from companies interested in acquiring its technology, so itís possible that Appleís wasnít the best deal. Or maybe the firm just doesnít want to sell off yet and has bigger plans for the future.
    Hopefully, they don't sell but if they do, hopefully, its to a company that thinks BlackBerry 10 will be a good operating system to develop for...

    They stopped updating the app for blackberry phones. which im still currently using, i did email them about blackberry 10 like a few months ago but they said they don't have any plans to develop for blackberry 10, since they are currently focus on android and ios only.

    This is huge; Waze has a big following. And... I'm pretty sure they're not on Windows Phone, right?

    I believe you're correct. iOS and Android on their home page.

    And definitely right on huge - last I saw was 30 million users I think?

    Android port now, hopefully Cascades later ?

    People need to use this!

    I'm a long time Waze (ios) user, works great in the UK. Although this is exciting and works a lot better than blackberry maps it us very obviously a port. Damn those menus are slow.

    Smooth and accurate! I love it!

    One small issue: the time zone within the app is 4 hours ahead of the actual time zone I am in (Toronto, EDT). So if I will be arriving at 5:00, waze tells me I am arriving at 9:00.

    Is anyone else having this issue? Is there a way to correct it?

    Not sure what you mean by fubar, mine isn't working at all. Sat navigation is luckily.

    Got this in an email yesterday:

    Hi Tim
    We just uploaded a BB10 version today to the BB World and would be grateful for feedback as it is the first attempt at porting it to the new platform and I assume there are issues that will need be addressed.
    * Regards
    * * *Fej

    They want feedback. Unfortunately, my Z10 doesn't ship until next week.
