    4.0 is out (on iOS for a few months, apparently released for Android today however no update available on my phone), still no "tunnel mode"? This pretty important navigation feature was first requested back in 2010... I'm starting to loose my faith in Waze, having missed several exits in Stockholm's tunnels (first time there driving my own car) a few weeks back.
    Please, Waze, replace your "tunnel panic mode" with a simple, decent "tunnel mode" where the app just stays on route/road with last known speed until gps signals are available again. How hard can it be? (I really don't know! :-) )

    Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
    The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.

    I'm in as well, but my suggestion is to don't bother trying to use compass, gyro, accellerometer etc. just instruct the Waze client to stay on the current road with the last known speed (or even a 5% reduction as traffic often slows down just a tad in tunnels), in a sort of "demonstration mode".
    Don't bother changing parts of existing roads to "tunnels" either, just let Waze enter "low/no GPS mode" whenever GPS signals disappear - it might happen in city streets surrounded by tall buildings, in dense forrests, in deep valleys, not only in tunnels.
