My guess, google is auto, waze is manual. :)

Waze and Ovi maps can be installed in Nokia but not Google maps, betul kah?

When they have Google Maps Navigation enabled for Malaysia, then they'll have more users and better Live Traffic information on Google Maps.

Today, I see that Google Maps have added Bukit Mertajam, Gopeng, Chemor & Kuala Selangor to their Live Traffic coverage. Strange that Seremban & JB still nothing.

Google Maps is still NOT for drive navigation in this region at the moment. Nevertheless you can use Google Maps to glance at the traffic situation before you set out on your journey.

How often is the traffic updated? In my impromptu test I think it is about every 30 minutes. Is it variable according to traffic?
