I ran it in peak hour today and got nearly double the users, so I'm getting a feel for it. Not bad. It's improved. Spotify integration is new compared to my last go some time ago. Seems more user friendly. I need to run it a bit more but so far it's not bad. Useful. Map is now angled in view which is better. Used to be birds eye view and boring. Unsure how much data it's chewing but haven't paid much attention to that yet. I've been skimping on my phone plan as I run prepaid. Lately I see sim card offers going cheap. Each month I've ported my number, jumping companies each month with zero loyalty for about half a year now and saved about $150 doing so. Some sim starter packs are as low as $5. If I see a cheap one I grab it. Sometimes the data is plentyful, sometimes not. Same with signal and service, some good, some weak. Helps me test networks too.That number must vary a lot in my area. Right now it won't even tell me. Later this morning it will give me a number and this afternoon it will be a different number.
It happens due to the "I've done my share, now its your turn" mentality.No question. I've noticed a steep drop off in gas price reporting on Gas Buddy as well. At first these crowd source apps have lots of people excited to have them and contribute. But as time goes that spirit morphs into just wanting to use and not contribute.
It's my understanding and belief that the moment you press the first alert button, those GPS coordinates are stored for the upcoming alert when you decide what you are alerting to.On interstate I think perhaps the truckers do most of the marking.
Waze needs to make it easier. We need short cuts, one button press mark a LEO. One for each scenario.
What I do when I get on the road is press the alert button / police button / visible button / Later Button. It sits in the top left corner until I select it. Then its pop pop.
Other than the above I still scan as if I don't use Waze. Eyes peeled, mirrors mirror mirrors, brake lights ahead, LEO's in the grass. R3, ALP.
