Burning Man 2012 Waze Group!

Postby MrMullen » Tue Aug 21, 2012 4:41 pm

I saw a couple of years ago that someone at BMORG created a Burning Man Waze group. I looked this year and could not find it, so I created a new one. Come join the "Burning Man 2012" group in Waze! Also, create your own local Waze group for your local community and join this new one I created.

Here is the 5 second read on what Waze is:

Meet Waze - a fun, community-based GPS traffic and navigation app.

Join forces with drivers in your area, easily report what's happening on the road and get turn-by-turn navigation that automatically re-routes you when road conditions change.

That way everybody's commute gets faster and safer. Smart, right?

I don't see an all inclusive one, just the regional groups.

Sweet! Waze is the best!

I can't find the group either? Only a few old regional lists show up no matter what I select.

FYI, waze made a BM group on their website linked from the Burning Man site about 2 years ago
Don't go there -> ( http://www.burningman.com/preparation/travel_info/waze.html#.UDVE4vVdCa4.
People at wazed tell me it outdated, and you should make your own group.

However, on your phone you can only access groups locally. You need to log in to their web form for groups to see other groups.

Waze group website (make an account first) : https://www.waze.com/signin/?page=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.waze.com%2Fdashboard%2Fgroups%2F

Everyone who can should use this, there's a great reporting feature- you can alert those behind you to upcoming hazards: cars pulled over, debris in road- and COPS!


Hope this helps!
