Waze's asking price is around $1 billion. Other companies such as Facebook also want to bid for Waze. However, Waze's cofounders do not want to go with Facebook, as social giant wants to move it to California. 

The startup's app has more than 40 million active users. In the meantime, you can have your hands on Waze on both Android and iOS.
