  1. To have options to report unsafe areas (Eg.South Africa - Riots) so that tourists and people unaware don't drive into said areas

    I am from South Africa and unfortunately we often have riots and there are areas that aren't safe to drive. It would be good to have an option that allows this to be highlighted or reported (as we do with traffic) so people that are unaware don't intentionally drive into dangerous areas.

  2. Automate road closure Report

    It is difficult to report road closures in real time - especially on a freeway - because of the approach speed and unexpected driving adjustment. If Waze inquired why I missed a turn/off-on ramp it would be helpful. This is similar to when Waze asks "you slowed down - are you in traffic?" If Waze notices that I missed a turn/off-on ramp it should ask "you missed a turn- was there a road closure ?" This way I can report later ( give me 60 secs) when safe. If I just missed the turn because I was distracted or chose…

  4. Drive now should be optional

    The 'drive now' banner that appears after the new update is very disruptive on android auto. It is not needed. Should be optional as the banner blocks the map behind. To try and then disable it, is difficult and time consuming while driving and could be dangerous. Can it be made optional i.e. only make it appear if a setting is switched on or only bring it up when required. The design assumption that has been made is probably down to assuming that everything is touch screen. Some old android auto systems are being controlled through buttons and wheels. Please…

  5. Stop using last direction of travel to determine directions on startup.

    Waze should not use the last direction of travel for determining routes. Instead of routing 5 turns to go the opposite direction on a roadway, waze should just say "go east/west/north/south on xx" or just not have any audible direction and send you on the fastest path mid segment.

  6. Traffic jam Estimated time

    "Estimated TIME in Traffic Jam NN-minutes" message should be extended with jam distance, like "Estimated TIME in Traffic Jam 10 minutes in 3 kilometers"

  7. Mute voice guidance near home/work‏

    Please have an option to mute the voice guidance in a radius of [X] distance from my home, and/or from work. Alerts should not be muted by this setting.

    It's annoying that I have to listen to voice guidance near my home -- I know how to get from my house to the main road, thank you very much! But turning the voice off and on again during the drive (during every drive!) is a nuisance and a safety risk.

  8. "Stop running in the background" switch on iOS

    Hi. I found that Waze continues to run and use GPS and 3G signal while backgrounded on the iPhone. This is catastrophic in our country for two reasons: 1. It keeps the phone very hot. 2. it uses data at about 0.15 USD/MB, thereby ticking down your data and using up your money. You have to explicitly turn it off or explicitly quit the app. There should be a switch that says, and is by default, set to "Do not run or use data or GPS in the background". My experience: I used Waze to get to a destination. I…

  12. Saved places folders

    It would be nice if individual saved places could be saved in separate folders. Possible one for family, shopping, vacation, activities, etc. It would make it faster and easier to find a place without scrolling through my entire saved list.

  13. Allow viewing on mobile while connected to android auto

    When my phone is connected to Android Auto, viewing the app on the phone is disabled but not all features are enabled on the car display which are often needed. I cannot change my vehicle type (car/motorcycle), I cannot share my ride, if I am not currently navigated I cannot change alert settings.

  16. Ford Sync integration

    Later this year, Ford will release the APIs for integrating apps with vehicles that have Sync. Waze could use the vehicle's on-board GPS, speedometer, and other data instead of running the phone's GPS.

  18. In states that use IPASS & similar toll systems, modify Waze to indicate that cash lanes or toll pass lanes are an option

    The app currently routes us to the cash lanes - it doesn't take into account that IPASS lanes (& similar state toll lanes) are an option; please change

  19. maximum one report per X miles

    Hi there,

    Waze is awesome and everyone is using it. Some like me to navigate from Northern Denmark all the way to Romania on holiday others just to find out about speed traps.

    In Romania, Waze caught a lot of media attention so we have a lot of new users, who are obsessed with the points. The new users part is good. We get more reports, more places, we improve on the map problems and we know exactly where the police is :)))

    But then due to the point system, the new users instead of thanking for a reported police…

  20. Use the telephone acceletor to get data about road quality

    Use the telephone acceletor to get data about the general quality of the road. I live near roads that your phone would be shaking constantly. The accelerometer can be useful to give an overall quality rating for each segment.

    Then waze could have an option prefer to choose good roads when routing.
