Best I can do to describe the issue is this.
Normally it goes BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, shift, BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
But now it's a bit more like this
Any thoughts/opinions on it, or just the links?
Seen this all over the news yesterday like it's something new? <Insert line about them running out of things to report on here>
The problem with these apps is that there just isn't enough of a following for each of them in Perth, you really need a big, active, user-base for it to be viable and last time I tried out Waze, I didn't find that. Has anyone found it's become worthwhile yet? And personally I like how Google Maps now uses background data from all phones on the road to predict traffic conditions, I've found that to be pretty bang on.
I've used waze for work as iphone maps is rubbish.
Never bothered with entering road alerts etc, didn't have the time.
It gives fixed camera/red light alerts, speed limits and found the data base to be pretty accurate.
Would use again.
Not sure if everyone already knows, but the Police publish the locations every week on their website. It doesn't give you a time or exact location, but it will give you the street and suburb and when the cameras are often in the same place every time it gives you a fair good idea of where they're going to be.
had it running a few times over the past few weeks.
decent navigation, but the better part is the speedo and speed limit indicators - can be handy just to double check sometimes

I use it as well. When it starts up it says how many 'wazers' near you; just opened it then and says 400.
I do find there are few police reports, but haven't really been past many to see how accurate. Besides the user input stuff though, it can display the current speed limit, your GPS speed, and set an audible alarm if you go over (can be set to 5/10/20 km or 5/10/15 % over.)
Also functions as a fairly decent GPS, and when you have a route locked in, you can send an ETA by message to someone. The message also has a link so your recipient can track your whereabouts on that trip.
The best part is that if you are caught in bad/heavy traffic, and there is a faster way around it, the map updates automatically to allow for it (sometimes bypassing it)

If you keep trying to explain it with logic and facts you will possibly end up hurting your sanity.
Have used Waze in Europe and the UK, very good with a high user base. Hopefully with the media all over it at the moment the app will get the boost it needs to be useful here.
Waze is owned by Google. So your going to get all that traffic data from people using either but as for manually entering radar locations etc, User-base . Though I do find it more aesthetically pleasing compared to Google Maps especially with Live Speed and Speed Limit on the HUD with notification you can set x+10 over etc. Apart from that it would be handy if your in a monster of a cruise as you can have friends that can be tracked if your into that sort of thing lol.

it will be interesting to see if the trend increases (or even lasts) but there appears to be more activity since it featured on the news. Lots more traffic reports and a few recent camera sightings
