Its been a long wait, but the leading crowd-sources GPS navigation app, Waze, is now available in the Windows Phone Store.

For navigation the app offers a daytime/ night time mode, the ability to avoid toll roads, fastest/shortest routing, a speedometer and more.

wazeqrMost importantly the user is able to report issues such as speed cameras on the road or leave location-based comments.  You can report a traffic jam (moderate/heavy/standstill), alert for police, report an accident (minor/major), hazards (on the road, shoulder, weather) and cameras (speed, red light, fake). For all but the camera’s you can attach a picture. You can also see the location of other Waze users.

The app joins only one other Google-sources app in the Windows Phone Store, and its eventual release does come as somewhat as a surprise.

Find it in the Windows Phone Store here.
