  3. 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.

  4. Add Electric Charging station location info.

    As as EV driver, it would be nice if electric charging station locations was built into the app so I don't have to go to yet another app just for this info. The data is widely available from here

    http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html

    and here

    http://www.plugshare.com/

    and here

    http://www.chargepoint.com/

    One problem is there is not one site that has all the info, so I'm forced to check all three. Having all this data within Waze would allow me to stay inside the app without having to leave it.

  5. Heads up Display (HUD)

    make an heads up display icon so that the user can place it on their dash and the reflection will show up on the windshield.. for night time driving whee it is safer to stare closer to the road versus looking down...other apps use this idea but they dont have the GPS ability..it will set waze apart from all other GPS systems..and make it look extra cool!

  6. Mirror link support!

    Most newer vehicles are coming from the factory with mirrorlink, support for mirrorlink would alow me to use waze with my factory touch screen. Much like the pioneer support. Having this as I'm sure for others would allow us to use waze all the time!

  7. Reminder: time to take a break!

    We suggest introducing notifications that would remind drivers to take a 10 minute break when they have driven for 2 hours non-stop, and after a 4 hour drive would suggest taking a 20 minute power nap.

    Research by the Latvian Road Traffic Safety Directorate shows that 11,7% of drivers are at high risk of falling asleep, and 1/3 of all drivers have experienced falling asleep at the wheel for a second in the last year.

    By reminding drivers how important it is to take breaks, Waze can help prevent tragic accidents and save lives.

  8. 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

  9. Mute navigation during phone call.

    When making or taking phone calls using bluetooth, waze navigation prompts often interrupt me. The person on the other end of the line can't hear the prompt, but it means either I miss what they're saying, or my train of thought is interrupted mid-sentence.

    It would be useful for the client to auto-mute during a phone call.

  10. Add pause option for stops

    Add pause option to client, that could be activated when stopping by at a gas station or other places, so that heavy traffic is not indicated. It could unpause automatically when the car start moving

    was not uploaded on 2.2, but still under consideration for the next version.

  11. Increase police warning distance

    Waze users are warned of speed traps or police presence only about 600 feet ahead of time. This is far too late of a warning. With a clear line of sight, law enforcement can detect speeders at 1-2 miles out.

    By the time the Waze warning pops up, you could have already been detected.

    This feature – while very well intentioned and thought out – is useless with so little warning.

  12. Speed bumps warnings

    I would like to suggest that WME could allow users to edit the map to indicate speed bumps warning to work like radars. This should be useful since in Brazil several speed bumps are not clearly marked or painted. There have been described too many occasions that we have been caught unexpectedly by an unmarked/unpainted speed bump during the night. This can be a life safer by avoiding the potential damage in our cars and, obviously, in our lives.

  13. police: trailing/leading (in motion vs stationary)

    Reports of stationary police are nice, but reporting highway patrol on the prowl with that feature is untenable.

    Please consider a feature to report actively pacing highway patrol with modifier for leading (ahead of officer), or trailing (behind officer).

    There should be an option to anonymize the report should one be traveling WITH- or accelerating AWAY from- the highway patrol at speeds exceeding posted limits.

  14. Please offer an ad-free version of Waze.

    I'm pretty sick of seeing Taco Bells, Ramada Inns, and Smart Water pop up on my map. I'd pay up to $5 for a version of Waze without advertisements.

  16. Save and later upload client data for areas with limited cell and/or Wi-Fi only users.

    The amount of data saved currently is insufficient to allow mapping of vast rural areas. Saving this data when storage is available and later uploading will speed the completion of your goals.

    This is already working, though not properly and all devices. We are working on improving waze behavior in areas where the connectivity is not good, however, you will still have to start a new waze session with a connection .

  18. New Report options

    Please add following option for reporting:

    Hazard -> Weather -> Ice On Road - REALLY important in my country

    Hazard -> Weather -> Flooded Road - also REALLY important

    Hazard -> On road -> Road Closed ahead - this could be abused, so should be discussed in function

    Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Curve - most are marked by road signs but driver could choose to get extra warning from Waze! for example it would really help when visibility is poor!!

    Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Intersection - maybe Black Point (a point where a lot of accidents…
