  1. audio alerts for everything

    It would be nice to have audio alerts for all activity in waze. If there is a traffic jam ahead alert me vocally, same for car on shoulder etc.

    I say this because I ride a motorcycle and am not able to view my screen (also it would take my attention from the bike). I would like to be audibly alerted of everything such as speed cams, cops, blah blah :)

  2. Open up Waze Carpool for Trinidad and Tobago to reduce Traffic

    Big benefits to bring Carpool to Trinidad and Tobago to:-
    -- reduce the number of cars on the road during rush hour traffic (5am-9am) & (3pm-7pm). It is grid-lock at these times and can take up to 3 hours to get into and out of the capital (Port of Spain)
    -- car ownership is prohibitively expensive
    -- public transportation is risky
    -- public transportation is unreliable
    -- be environmentally conscious to the earth by being more economical moving people

    Help our little paradise to become better and more responsible. Help to bring Waze Carpool to Trinidad and Tobago

  4. Quick report buttons

    It would be a good idea to place some (2??) customizable quick report buttons on the main Map/interface; in such way we can report speed traps/ dangers/ police while we are driving with a single touch (or double to exclude unintended reports)!
    There are too many menu/options to make a report... the only way to put them live is to stop the car and going trough a jungle of options... ( :geek: and I'm used to that! I'm an android user)
    Heavy traffic is fine... you're stuck in your car and you've all the time to browse the options but…

  7. Waze only friends

    Hello, I would like to be able to make friends with Wazers without having them also be facebook friends. To me they are seperate applications and do not want to mix them. Eg. work aquaintainces who I don't necessarially want to facebook friend them but use Waze. Also I have "real" friends who refuse to use facebook but I want to have them use Waze and friend them that way.

  8. Speed Bumps

    I will suggest the inclusion of speed reducers commonly used in Brazil, called "lombadas" or "quebra-molas" (speed bumps). These elements are rarely well signposted.
    Are a ridge set in a road surface, for purposes to make drivers to reduce speed.

  9. Sync with Google "my places"

    it would be great to be able to sync the places already stored in google's my places. So you don´t have to search for them separately and have them at hand even quicker.

    more advanced: sharing your places with friends or family members across devices would be great.

    finally: being able to save places on the webinterface and syncing to user devices would be nice

    waze rocks - keep up the good work!

  10. Ukrainian

    Hello Waze,

    First off, you guys do a wonderful job. I know that in my community of Ukrianians, there is a need for Ukrainian spoken directions.

    If there is potential for it to happen, it'd be absolutely fantastic!

    Appreciate your work.

    Best regards,

    Slavik

  11. Count TURNS, not distance to the next turn

    when people give directions to each other, naturally they will say 'on the 2nd turn, take a right turn'.
    We are better at counting turns, than meters or miles...
    if Waze could do the same, instead of 'in 500m turn right', it would be great

  12. Accident alert

    If something happened to a driver and it was an accident, Waze should detect the drastic "Stop" of the driver and after that if in th next 5-10 second no movements are done, should pop up a message asking the driver if he was in an accident, if the driver doesn't answer in 20-25 second, the "Alert" should appear on the map alerting the near user of Waze. What do you think?

  14. William Daniels voice as KITT from Knight Rider

    Since Arnold Schwarzenegger voice was introduced as the Terminator, why not use KITT's voice as well? I think it would be a great idea, since he was one of the first talking cars! I'm pretty sure a lot of people would like to have KITT by his side while they're in the road.

  15. Aviso sonoro limite de velocidade

    Com a redução do limite de velocidade para 50 Kms, em diversas vias da cidade de São Paulo, sugiro que o WAZE adote um sinal sonoro, sempre que a velocidade do carro superar os 50Kms, independente da velocidade permitida na via trafegada.
    Recebi diversas multas por excesso de velocidade, muitas por distração, e tenho utilizado outros aplicativos com esse recurso. Acredito que se o WAZE adicionar esse mecanismo, a fidelidade e frequência de uso será ampliada, pois eu, por exemplo, acionarei o aplicativo antes mesmo de entrar no meu veículo (sem mesmo ter a necessidade de ser orientado pelo trânsito). …

  17. Option to disable route recalculating alert. That nerve wracking chirp is driving me crazy!

    Whoever approved that grating & obnoxious squawking route recalculation alarm should be fired. I drive a cab and even my customers cringe when they hear it and say "what's that awful noise". PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET US TURN IT OFF! Alerts only should mean alerts only. Hearing that damn noise screech and grate 5 times when I'm driving through a parking lot is maddening!

  18. Android Auto - Use Car Antenna

    Right now, when connecting to Android Auto, Waze still uses the phone GPS antenna. In comparison, Google Maps pulls the location from the headset/car antenna, which is often placed optimally to maximize GPS signal strength from within the car.

    Please set Waze to use the car's GPS antenna when connected via Android Auto

  20. "Open in Waze" - modify the Waze code so a user can click and hold on an address and be given the option to "Open in Waze" for navigation.

    "Open in Waze" (or "Navigate to in Waze") would merely allow the user to click and hold on an address in their phone and be given the option to open the address within Waze itself.

    A user currently can open an attachment in an email in numerous different downloadable programs. The same is true for address which currently default to the Maps app. It would be nice to see the same integration with Waze.

    Then, whenever a person receives a text, email, or other message with an address within it, the user would be able to click and hold on…
