Waze challenges maps providers

Road-Warrior1Google Maps and Mapquest have a growing competitor that’s quickly winning fans: waze.com. In addition to relatively static maps, it provides dynamic information such as traffic jams, speed traps, gasoline prices, and road obstacles. Who provides this data? Other Waze users.

Waze uses crowd-sourcing to great effect via Facebook. It has an iPhone and Android version for use in cars. There is no pedestrian, bicycle, or public transport version.
