Apple Seeks Patent For Waze-Style Crowdsourced Navigation

Apple is seeking a patent for crowdsourced navigation with traffic data. ifans are prolly getting very excited about this but there's just one problem... It allready exists through applications such as Inrix Traffic! and Waze.

The process of reporting looks very much like the screen for reporting an incident with Inrix and the general layout and feel of the application looks like Inrix as well

I really think that apple's implementation of this will not be as successful as Inrix and everyone knows how terrrible thier shot at mapping related software was!

I actually hope Inrix takes action against this.
