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
I walk quite a lot and it is the perfect time to add house numbers. But it does save wrong speed, truns and waze actually needs a minimum speed from about 10 kmh to work right.
I am willing to pay a fee for a walking version.
Agreed. Not easy to walk in cities and one ways are avoided.
Please please please add a walking mode, it would be very handy!

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!
My kids use Waze when they walk; it would be wonderful if their ETA were accurate.
Yep! It's the green thing to do!
Don't know why Waze would report false traffic data when it obviously knows it's in Walk mode.
Don't know why people think it's less safe to walk than to drive while using Waze.
walk option would be great to get around an unknow city, i was just in Chicago, walked 1 hour to get to a place 10 minutes away. all due to one way streets. waze...please listen....add a "waze walker" option, instead of driving.

My husband and I were walking around DC last night and really could have used a pedestrian option!!
Needs pedestrian settings for exploring new cities
SIMPLE: Either have that button already, or make an option in nav settings that will pop a question dialogue when stopping for too long - or when the famous popup question about traffic comes - add an additional optional answer: "KNOCK IT OFF AND LET ME WALK!!!"

absolutely a must have.
I have always relied on Google Maps when walking through a city. However, in NYC, Google Maps is horrible. Waze tends to hold the routing better. I too would love to see Waze develope a pedestrian mode.
Would love to use Waze for walking as well as driving is that possible? Is there a setting I am not seeing?
Keep in mind that the original post porposal is to have a walking button for one reason:
To avoid sending Waze false traffic data while walking with it active.
That is the only reason..
The idea was never to add a mode to be guided somehwere while walking with Waze.
If you know the Waze Map Editor a little bit, and how the map is built, you probably know that it is only made for routing cars around.
If you need to be guided while walking or riding a bike, use Google Maps. There are already many great apps for almost everything out there. Waze cannot be an "all-in-one" app for everything the App store offers. It's made for motored vehicles only.
when you are new to a city with lots of one way streets and walking, the destination is qute complicated to get to and much longer by car than by an easy walk. I was busting my ass trying to use waze. Ofcourse, not the right app. (also a spell checker would help)
no walking option is pathetic...... what a waste of time
I would love walking directions too and public transportation options. I go back to google for those.
Absolutely need walking routes. I'm going back to Google Maps.
