Italy diggs waze. Here's the map, a few days post-launch - WOW!

Waze reached nearly  10,000 downloads on its first day in the Italian Appstore.

  • Road recording and community activity is in full speed. This is very exciting to us, and to think that there's not even a base map yet! Oh.... and there seems to be lots of chit chat :).   This is also an opportunity to apologize for the tech difficulties we've been having over the past week. We're working tirelessly to fix them.


  • The community prepared videos on how to edit the map and is very active in the forum.

International users FYI - we are working on a platform that will allow you to translate waze into any language, except the UI and the Voice prompts. We'll get it out there as quickly as possible. Upcoming version will have Spanish in it, the following will be open

to any language that the community has translated. If all goes well  :)
