walking mode button

Have you thought about a walking mode button.So if you have waze on you don't get false data that traffic is at a stand still when you are walking.
Many thanks Andrew warren

        Going to a mall, you could put in the store, park, and get continued directions to the store in the mall.

        Please keep Waze a vehicle-centric app. Other apps are better suited for walking.

        I would love this for walking on the beach on vacation. It's impossible to know how far away things are, and we could add walking paths. Thank you!

        It would be a great idea to add walking directions to waze. I use it more than google map because it shows places on my iPhone that my google map doesn't find! I walk most of the time as I don't have a car so please consider adding it.

        The walking mode would be great. I use Waze all the time and tell everyone about it....please add the walking mode

        @Anonymous October 16 :
        Google owns Waze, so I really don't think they would care that people use Google Maps more than Waze...
        Waze is now their social GPS-traffic app for cars only. I seriously doubt they have plans to include a walking/biking mode to pull people away from their main map service and make more people use Waze instead of Google Maps.

        Acquainted with Waze from Israel but now using it all the time while travelling. In the cities, without a car it is unusable without a walking version. Google maps has car, public transport and walking so I prefer using that application. I believe this is an undesirable situation and makes waze loose users

        Additionally a bicycle mode as they can travel in places a car may not be permitted or in a direction not permitted.

        Waze walking would be great. We are on vacation and are getting driving directions. Had to go to Map-quest for walking directions.

        If users have the motion data enabled for Waze (for parking spot identification) then the app could detect walking, too.

        Either way, turning off the voice when walking would be quite useful. Driving directions while walking into a building are not helpful!
