    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.

    This is not just applicable to tunnels, but to any place where there is a reasonable expectation the GPS signal will be degraded, such as on the lower deck of the George Washington Bridge (NYC).

    NOTE: This could likely be combined with the Dead Reckoning idea.

    1. Railroads serve as a visual position reference indicator. 2. Intelligent grade crossings require GPS for in-vehicle train approach warning. Ref. http://www.techtransfer.berkeley.edu/railroad05downloads/BOUSQUET.pdf, Trains Magazine, Aug. 2011, p. 14. The Federal Railroad Administration has begun limited field testing.

    1. Railroads are important landmarks for visual position orientation. 2. Intelligent grade crossings (http://www.fra.dot.gov/Pages/1270.shtml, Trains Magazine, Aug. 2011, p. 14, "Where the steel hits the road," http://trn.trains.com/sitecore/content/Magazine%20Issues/2011/August%202011.aspx) will incorporate GPS technology as a safety measure at grade crossings.

    Yes, Steve. Good thinking. Turn Right (Left), Bear Right (Left), Keep Right (Left), and Exit Right (Left) are all valid instructions.
