=Waze in IndiaPakistan====History===Once upon a time, back in 2012, a few adventurous Wazers in India got together and coordinated their efforts to improve the map. They worked hard and fired up the community for the next couple of years. But alas, after the merger with Google, the base maps were wiped. Even though the maps were a lot better to begin with now, some editors lost hope and wondered if there was any point in starting again from scratch. Some went their own ways, but a couple of determined Wazers kept editing. Suddenly, one day, there was news of a MapRaid in India. The sleeping editors arose and took notice. The world now knew of Waze in India! The hard work began again in earnest, this time, with help from hundreds of other editors from around the world! Suddenly, map problems started disappearing from the map, new roads snaked their way across the land. India learned a valuable lesson – where there’s a will, there’s Waze.

===Bugs and limitations===
Although we think Waze gives the best possibilities for navigation, it knows some [[Problems,_bugs_and_limitations|problems and limitations]] as well. Specific for India Pakistan are the following:
* '''The map needs to be improved'''
: Due to the status of the road network and the yet small community, the map in India Pakistan is not of high quality everywhere. However, the current editing community is working hard to improve the map. You help already by [[Just_drive_around_with_Waze_turned_on|driving with Waze on]]! And if you are in for an adventure, you might [ add new roads to the map], or even become a [[File:Mapeditor.png|28px|frameless]][[India/Editing|Waze Map Editor]].
* '''Long distance routing'''
: Setting a route over long distances puts a lot of weight on the servers. Depending on the map quality, you can expect routes with a maximum length of about 1500 km. At this moment, maximum route length will often be less in IndiaPakistan*. If you request a route and the calculation time is too long, you'll receive an error saying "Routing server timeout" or "no route found". We recommend breaking up longer routes into several segments by choosing intermediate destinations.
:<small>* ''Note that we are currently upgrading the road network to get better and longer routes!''</small>
* '''Known issues in the current app version''' are listed on the [ support pages]<br /><br />
