Google acquiring Waze?

Google is planning to acquire Waze for $1.3 billion. The decision is not final (yet), but it seems that Facebook has backed off the deal and Google will take over. Is there a chance that Google is planning a free offline navigation for Android? I sure hope so. I never really used Google Maps because of the limited mobile data plan, but I did use Route 66 and MapDroyd a lot, because they are free and fully offline. They don’t navigate you around, but maps are very useful.

I’ll be keeping my eyes on this one, because i’d love to have a proper free GPS navigation and knowing Google, they’ll make it free, if they will of course release it as a part of their apps…
