DIY Bumper Sticker Campaign Launched at Slovak Meetup

Bratislava’s power-Wazers joined forces again last week to discuss all things Waze. The group reviewed suggested features and tweaks, errors and bugs, and impressively, a guerrilla campaign to attract more Waze users across their local city.

The DIY campaign is made up of catchy bumper stickers with promotional text in Slovak. The stickers, printed in a2 and a3 formats, were distributed, and pasted, at the Meetup.

Organized by Tomas Gursky (aka guri211), the 20 Wazers in attendance toasted to fantastic growth across their region. Since their last Meetup in January, user growth has increased 100%, with 80% growth in Prague alone.

Useful tools created by the Slovak community include their very own Status Page, which Gursky created in April 2012. Additionally, Czech Wazer fotrik and Gursky collaboratively produced a tool that measures user activity and growth in the region.

Gursky, the owner of a VOIP company, is one of the first editors and area managers from Bratislava. Without an RDS-TMC system in place, Wazers in Slovakia have come to rely upon the app for all their traffic needs. As a result, Gursky has stated, the Waze maps are more accurate than any other sources'. This is partly thanks to the work of long-time dedicated editors, such as Wazers foxitrot and shalafi, who were also in attendance at the Meetup.

Discussion points included a desire for better map protection tools after several reports of map vandalism. Additionally, validated house numbers, problems with turn restrictions and the use of better aerials all ranked high on the list of problems Slovak Wazers would like to see improved.

However with such a strong map already in place, the Wazers shifted their attention to one goal by the meeting’s end: gaining more users through the DIY campaign and other means of outreach.
