Testing Waze in Tarakan Island, Indonesia.

No 3G totally rely on GPS, precache map and wifi. As you can see from the snapshot my phone is on airplane mode. I don't want it to log on into global roaming.

You cannot navigate without internet because the map is downloaded as and when needed. Like Bro Alyem said, the Live informations is excellence. I guess precache means one have to exactly follow its route or else you with have a waze opening page only without the route map.

This to answer hmaxx too.

To precache a map if you do not have 3G is, get in to a wifi zone (maybe your home) and do a "Navigate to" key in the keyword let say "London" it will show london and just maximise the screen and wait it will precache London and surrounding area, just scroll around to precache the entire British Isle if you want.

Once you are in London, you just open up Waze in airplane mode, with only GPS on and use it. No live traffic but you get Nav.

Obviously you don't need to go to London and try, have a go locally.. Precache as mention, set your phone not to receive Data or in Airplane mode and try to Navigate.

Example of Precache over Wifi Navigation in airplane mode done in Tarakan, Indonesia.

bro,
how do you record your tracklog?



Track log are automatically recorder once you switches waze on, it will track. What you need to do is :

On Waze select Setting --> Help --> Send Log it will send the Track or any Pave to Waze server that you could open online and do editing.

You can also refresh map your area (where you are now) by select Setting --> Advance --> Data Transfer --> Refresh Map My Area.

But its best to do all above over wifi.

Above is what it looks like in my account.
