    Not so much to reduce mobile data (though a lot would be required) as to offload the computation required to find the route. Pathfinding is a very computationally intense process but Waze adds even more data (time of day, day of week, time of year) to the computations than just "shortest path". If your phone had to crunch the route across town your patience would probably time out, never mind a very long route that the server has trouble with.

    As a former Trapster user, I can attest that "known hideouts" are pretty useless. They can hide out in dozens of places in a small area, and you never know when they'll be there. The end effect is a LOT of clutter on the map. I looked at the Trapster map of San Francisco once, and the "known hideouts" were packed 2-4 per block! I don't know how it could possibly be useful to be told that the police may be hiding in any of a dozen places in the next mile. I don't need an app to remind me that I could get in trouble if I break the law on a given stretch of road. If you're that paranoid about police, I don't see why you need technology to reinforce, or more probably amplify your paranoia. Just remember that they are hiding behind every bush and billboard and you'll be fine.

    In addition to reporting "both lanes" and "all directions", allow the report pin to be moved around a bit by the reporter. You can't report an accident you see 3 blocks ahead unless you actively wade into the traffic snarl to get right next to it. Most of us will probably turn off early to go around, meaning neither a report nor moving data are updating routes through the area.

    "Stick" the pin to the screen and allow the Wazer to scroll the map around under it, then tap a button in the corner to drop the pin on the map.
