  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. Slow down & move over warning for Emergeny Responders

    Warn motorists of Emergency Responders (police cars, tow trucks, ambulances) with a Slow Down Move Over warning. Lives are being lost at alarming rates and any support of the move over laws are greatly appreciated.

  8. אפשרות ניווט לתחנות דלק שפתוחות בשבת

    רבים בציבור מעוניינים לתדלק אך ורק בתחנת דלק שפעילה גם במהלך סופי שבוע וחגים. נשמח אם תאפשרו הוספת פונקציה לאפליקציה שתציג בפני המנווט/ת אך ורק תחנות דלק כאלה, גם אם התדלוק הוא במהלך השבוע.

  9. 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.

  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

  12. 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…

    Great news! We’re happy to share that “Unplowed road” report has been recently added to Waze. We hope that this will satisfy this request for now. Thank you for making this suggestion and drive safe in that snow ;)

    Great news! The Waze Beacons Program is in the works and constantly expanding.
    The Waze Beacons Program is the first scalable, affordable solution in the world to power navigation in tunnels. Currently available in select tunnels throughout Pittsburgh, Haifa, Israel, Paris and Rio de Janeiro – seamless navigation is available to Wazers underground simply by turning on Bluetooth functionality.

  14. "Both lanes" reporting option

    Add a "both lanes" option when reporting traffic jams, hazards, and accidents affecting both directions of travel at the same time.

  15. Dangerous areas in Brazil

    Unfortunately we have some problems about some dangerous areas... Another person got killed because of a bad route... http://g1.globo.com/rio-de-janeiro/noticia/2015/10/relembre-ataques-de-bandidos-do-rj-motoristas-e-passageiros-perdidos.html
    I think waze could have an option to avoid these unsafe areas...

  17. House numbers with slash

    Allow add house numbers with slash. For example: 631/29. 639 is for building, 29 is for entrance (Distance between entrances can by big). All block-buildings in my country has this double numbers.Also houses can be marked 10/a 10/b. It is not possible to add this type of number to editor, so usually we have just streets but no one is adding house numbers - as it would be inaccurate to put just first or second number.

  18. Please add suburbs / neighborhoods / sections

    In many many streets in Latin America as in other Europe countries, in the same city could be a lot of different streets with the same name, the only info that differs them is the name of the neighborhood or suburb. It would be awesome if you guys could fit that info.

  19. dead reckoning (when neither data nor GPS available)

    There are zero map apps that offer dead reckoning:

    continue navigation when neither GPS nor data (mobile or wifi) are available. Useful also when insufficient GPS birds viewable.


    • compass

    • accelerometer

    • time

    optionally


    • orientation (for fixed mounts)

    Given availability of map data those are enough to continue navigation:

    . in tunnels
    . in parking structures
    . in box canyons

    This is especially beneficial for those who do not have (no longer have) aGPS [assisted GPS] features.

    But dead reckoning will benefit even those with aGPS.

  20. Police Heat Map

    What about a feature that shows popular police trap locations. There are locations in my town that are popular with police to setup speed traps. If those areas could glow blue like traffic areas glow red, I think that could be a great feature. If you could use the information that wazers report, then that info could be processed through an algorithm that show the high probability areas.
