can you compile waze on RASPBIAN ?
there are a lot of makers that build there own car pc with raspberry pi.

Yes ! Good idea
nope. i think waze developers really do not care about its consumers and are plain ignorant that they constantly ignore linux developers, could they be brided by android like the government are corupted and bribed by big companies

or are waze deliberately ignoring us and pushing this to one side because that's what it appears to be as they cant be bothered to reply and kind of makes this pointless

i wish waze would pull their finger out and realise just how many people now use raspberry pi's in their cars and is gps capable
i have a raspberry pi carpc, navit which is built in sucks, i use waze on my iphone but the screen is to small, and would love it on raspberry pi, so many now have raspberry pi's in their car and waze being not on it makes the carpc navigation ussless, i really wanna ditch garmin
Please build a Waze version for Raspbian! Please, please, please. Here are a few reasons:
1. Rasbperry makes one of the cheapest, most versatile, modular and easy to hack hardware platforms for a Car Navi-Media System
2. Raspbian already allows for customisations supporting best software combos for car navi-media (Kodi, pi-cam, py-obd2, etc)
3. Android on Raspberry does not support well video outputs so it's not an alternative yet, as an operating system for the purpose of building a car navi-media.
4. Expand the user base of waze BEYOND the actual limitations (smartphone users, modern car owners) and reach for people with older cars, tinkerers, etc), by such increasing the community size, interaction and the revenues for Waze.
Here's the thing Im guessing. Waze, is not open source. Therefore giving a copy we can compile ourselves on Raspbian probably wouldn't be allowed. But. Here's an idea.
Why not develop some kind of screen mirroring to a Raspberry Pi or something? That way, the routing and everything else still remains proprietry closed source. The phone does all the routing and tells the raspberry, while the raspberry downloads the maps that it's instructed to from the phone?
BUMP... yes please
I aggre with this post.
More and more people need that.
Definitely agree.. I use Waze almost all the time, even if I know where I'm going, in order to find out about traffic, police, accidents, etc.. and I plan to use a Raspberry Pi as a dash cam and music server for my car, so adding Waze would allow me to integrate one more great function into the same box. I'd expect that I'd tether the RPi to my Cellphone for data, but at least then the cell can remain in my pocket..
