    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 guess the "WIP" note is related to Falcon. I guess Falcon makes use (at least) of the cellphone acceleration information. This could be used to match position with curves on the road, at least when those curves are steep, and/or separated.
    The biggest problem happens when (somehow) you get spurious GPS samples (this happens in a major tunnel in Madrid, ie. M-30) which takes you OUT of the tunnel. This shouldn't be possible unless you have an exit, and the rest of input (acceleration, again) matches somehow. This breaks any Falcon improvement (once you are taken out the tunnel, road geometry can't obviously be matched).
