Waze now lets you edit information on places and contribute photos to help fellow drivers

Google today updated its community-powered Waze navigation app with new tools to help drivers share tips about the places they’ve visited.

Version 3.9 of the iOS and Android app (sorry Windows Phone users) introduces a new feature called Waze Places, which gives users the ability to edit information about businesses and residential locations. This can include photos, which, similar to Foursquare, will help others users identify their destination, as well as driver-centric details such as drive-thru and parking availability.

On that note, Waze has also added automatic parking pins, so it should be easier for forgetful drivers to remember where they left their vehicle. Finally, autocomplete has been rolled out globally for a faster search experience.
