Lane Guidance

While using Waze on highways lately, I have begun to think that having the ability to see what lane becomes the off ramp would be great, especially in complex city interchanges.

Portuguese: Estava usando o Waze em rodovias e comecei a pensar que seria ótimo ter a capacidade de ver qual pista pegar, especialmente em trevos complexos dentro das cidades.

Spanish: Últimamente me he dado cuenta que al utilizar waze en capitales se hace muy necesario que waze indique cual carril de una calle, avenida o autopista, llega a ser una rampa, especialmente en complejos intercambios.

        I would finally move from Google maps to Waze if it supported Lane Assist.
        Waze already has speed limit, please add Lane Assist and I'm ALL THE WAY WAZE!
        Until then, I'll stay with Google Maps.

        the feature was suggested in Nov 2010. now has 5410 votes. literally almost every other navigation software has lane guidance. this is an important feature that will improve driver safety. why is Waze holding out?

        At times we have to go to great lengths to get Waze to do a "keep right" (or left) at complex intersections. We also need a "continue straight" command. Lane guidance is available in other navigators.

        I've given up. I use Google maps with navigation in background, and Waze on screen to follow fastest route. GM will update route while I follow Waze's route. That way I still get alerts.

        As many users have indicated, I have no clue why Waze has still not implemented this. Google Maps has full lane guidance, which is hugely useful to have in unfamiliar metropolitan areas especially. Even in my own city, there are areas where lanes branch off or roads split, and Waze has no clue and doesn't even suggest staying right/left. The lack of this is the reason I use Google Maps in unfamiliar cities, Waze I usually just use on my known routes for traffic info.

        A must if I am to start using the application again. I have moved over to Google Nav with Tom Tom Speed Camera overlay.

        Lane assist is the reason why I use a different navigation app when abroad. Please add it to Waze so that it can be perfect.

        Please add Lane Assist, This feature is really missing, anyway Waze is perfect...

        Lack of lane assist keeps me from using Waze. If they ever implement this, all other sat nav apps will surely die a horrible death.

        I still don't get why this feature is not implemented yet... Quite frustrating I must say!
        I don't know what is worse, the feature not implemented after 6 years after the idea was shared or no reply from Waze about the subject!

        This is a great Idea, I have to go under a bridge and turn left in a traficc circle under the bridge to go home, and waze always wants me to go over the bridge and take an illegal left where I could cause an accident. This particular situacion has been reported already and is unde revision, however it is a perfect example of why this is necessary.

        Lane assist can be VERY helpful. I know Google owns you, and they have it. Please add it here.
