As promised, a clip showing Waze running on the N900. Sadly, it required a little more workarounds than the N950 and added 5 more TODOs to my list...

wow waze looks like a very cool app!
Is that v3.0?
Can't wait for a deb to start testing it

EDIT: is this your Waze implementation in pure QML based on the site API?

This is based on waze v2.4.0 specifically the android code branch. So this project is quite detached from my pure QML version

You should change the topic title.... I think you aren't aware that 90% of the N9 users are still here on maemo.org and not on meego.org
