Waze for Android – mapping roads and congestion

I came across Waze, an app for smartphones currently in beta for Android through someone who had used it to map road congestion on a Tamil Nadu highway. It seems promising that the app will use the GPS of a phone to automatically update the status for a given road, using other users as reference points. There is a provision to manually update various situations as well.
