    Cops hiding out in speed traps, accidents, road construction, fire and ambulance vehicles on the road. Stuff like that is great plus it's crowd sourced and current.

    Waze can easily be set up for hearing only the alerts you want. I have the turn by turn shut off and set only alerts. I swear by Waze. I have learned to trust it when I get re-routed even when it seems weird. It is routing me away from the traffic. I have been using it for 2 years now. My wife's Lexus uses Google maps and it is not as good avoiding traffic

    Thanks for your reply... makes sense about local residents posting the false construction alerts. How long do these alerts last before they expire?

    As long as people passing by confirm the construction,accident, police etc.....are still there it stays. You also have the option of a thumbs down which means it's no longer there. No replys? IDK how long it would stay

    From the new piece I saw, the residents were doing it daily.

    Hi there, so far as I can tell, it's been a while since Waze incorporation into Tesla has been discussed.

    Does your friend have any additional insight that you can share speaking to this?

    No, we're probably going to have to continue using our phones like some neanderthal's :)

    The custom Waze for Tesla website works nicely, however I would love to be able to contribute using the car, instead of my phone. Many times I would like to either add a new "siting" or mark one as no longer valid, to help everyone.

    Shouldn't be a surprise. This forum is a rumor mill. Sometimes fun speculation. But generally not Gospel, to put it lightly.

    "soon" in Tesla terminology isn't well defined :)

    Agreed - contributing updates would be nice :cool:

    I run both on the Tesla split screen ... Waze on top and Nav below.

    Yeah I do to. I was referring to the OP's post about Waze being incorporated into the Tesla apps "soon". For me Tesla's Nav sucks big time and has for a long long time so having a single app that incorporates incidents and route guidance with waypoints and route choices (Waze) would have been awesome.

    Sadly I don't find TeslaWaze make enough difference, for me, so I have Tesla Nav on screen, with sound turned off, and Waze on my phone, with sound turned up. Waze routing is, over here at least, far far superior to any other Nav that I have used (no experience of using Google Maps for NAV) with traffic rerouting, audible alerts for hazards / police on route and so on. The maps on my phone are too small to be good enough, so I use Tesla Nav for that - particularly when I have a complicated, unfamiliar, junction manoeuvre to make - I zoom-in on the Tesla map to more clearly see what I am supposed to be doing. There is a fair chance that Tesla and Waze agree on the odd occasions when the decision is complicated enough for me to need the Big Screen, particularly if I am close to my destination. Tesla Nav also gives me the associated energy graph etc. (subject to change if Waze decides to take me a longer route of course, but I can factor that in easily enough if there is a significant difference), which I need in additional to Waze on my phone.

    Replacing Tesla's Nav with Waze would be perfect from my perspective.

    To implement FSD and fulfill the goal of drivers only entering their destinations and letting the AP system do the driving, we'll need a much better navigation system than what we have today - with up-to-date maps and improved real-time traffic data (more than just the average speed). While we don't necessarily need the Waze software, FSD needs the same data - to display and also use for routing.

    Note that the posted FSD demo doesn't appear to be using the navigation software - it appeared to be a pre-programmed route, and not a route produced from the nav system...

    Absolutely true. And I think this explains why the current navigation/trip planner has gotten such little TLC. I'm fairly certain Tesla is working on their own nav system that will be rolled out with more AP2 features. I'm just hoping we (AP1 and non-AP) get better navigation as well.

    This would be the ultimate. I do NOT want to have to look down at my 4" phone screen doing 80MPH and try and add/update a pin. Just not worth the risk. Can it be done thru the Tesla browser, or is THAT the limiting factor?
