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.

        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.

        why hasnt waze implemented thie feature yet, its essential for most drivers, please waze hurry up and add a much neede dfeature

        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.

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

      • Craig EvansCraig Evans commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Only feature that keeps my using Google Maps instead Waze on unknown journeys
        Please please add this .

      • TATA commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes, please add lane guidance, it's the only thing preventing me from switching to waze.

      • gameplayaidgameplayaid commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I vote yes. Lane assistance is a great option. I find myself using Google Maps more than I would like to because of getting burned by being in the wrong lane at the wrong time with Waze. Otherwise, I prefer Waze. Thanks.

        I agree! We have this in the Charleston, SC tri-county area! It is a great option that could be added by users.
