  2. Notify if place is closed when starting a route

    Google Maps will notify you when you begin a route if the place you are going to is closed. Can this function be added to Waze?

  3. Please add "most fuel efficient" route option

    I would like a similar fuel efficient route option as seen in Google Maps.

  4. Plan your own tour with several stops.

    It would be great if you could, for example, plan your own motorbike tour in advance with several intermediate stops, as is the case in Google Maps, and then transfer this to your mobile phone and drive off on the planned tour.

  5. Dangerous road for trailers

    There are many roads that are okay for vehicles, but they are not good for vehicles pulling trailers or larger vehicles than that. You need to be able to specify that you are pulling a rig so that it will not put you on dangerous routes. We just had 3 horses get severely injured due to following a route safe for vehicles but not for vehicles hauling a trailer.

  6. Predictive Routing

    As awesome as Waze is, the fact that it can never remember my route to work is a little annoying. Every week I drive the same route to the office and Waze takes me on a similar route, I think that if you drive the same route enough times to and from the same locations, Waze should recognize that and load the route you always take as the main route.

  7. More than two addresses during one trip

    It would be great to be able to give in more than two adresses in one trip, to have Waze suggest the optimal route and to be able to adjust the order (like in Google maps)

  11. Lock Waze to a chosen route

    When I choose a route, there should be a way to keep Waze from redirecting back to a route I did NOT choose. In Raleigh, NC, 540 has much less traffic and construction than route 1 to interstate 40 when traveling from south of the city to the airport. But Waze keeps directing me back to US 1. I is hugely annoying! I understand there is a crowd-source/traffic-based algorithm, but I should be allowed to choose a different route. I end up following Waze so I don't miss the exit off 540 I orginally wanted.

  13. Notice on passport needed

    Please give a notice when routed through another country where a passport is needed. We were routed through Canada and didn’t realize it because it wasn’t called out. We did not have our passports with us, so had to change our route at the last minute which added miles to our drive.

  14. Avoid Traffic Button Option

    You have Avoid Highways so you need to also make AVOID TRAFFIC JAMS button or something like that. Guys come on. I don't care if I'm still moving but when I see a 10 mile red line, I don't care if it take 10 more minutes on a back road, as long as I'm still moving. Waze kept trying to take me back on the highway today and it is very frustrating AND very dangerous being distracted by trying to avoid the traffic.

  15. commercial vehicle routing by using an 'exclude' function

    Many states have roads that are passenger car only. WAZE could use an 'exclude road function' which would allow commercial drivers to have a list of roads that they can never use to be excluded ftom the route generation logic. You obviously have the basics for this function since you can exclude toll roads, unpaved roads, etc. This function would be very helpful since today the only routes that WAZE supplies sometimes are only for roads we can't use. Lastly, in NY, if you have a business sign on your car you are considered a commercial vehicle and are not…

  16. Mostrar estacionamientos, gasolineras, cajeros electrónicos, y sitios de interes SOBRE LA RUTA

  17. Que Waze vienne constater la réalité des routes avant de proposer des "raccourcis".

    Veuillez tenir compte des infrastructures avec les Maires des communes avant de proposer des routes qui sont en réalité des chemins de campagne à une voie et qui une fois connus n'offrent plus la possibilité à la nature, aux vététistes, aux promeneurs, aux résidents et à leurs enfants de se sentir en sécurité, tellement le flux augmente et les détériorations avec...

  19. Avoid small streets (width less than 2m)

    Some Streets in Italy are allowed for two way traffic, but the street is very narrow sometimes less than 2m. It would be good to have an option to avoid this streets.

  20. Distinguer routes de terre et routes goudronnées

    Il serait bon de distinguer les chemins de terre et les routes goudronnées ou de rajouter comme type de véhicule 4x4, tracteur, camionnette ou camping-car; car Waze calcule parfois des itinéraires plus rapides en nous faisant passer par des chemins accessible seulement en 4x4 ou en tracteur. C'est dangereux et souvent on ne peut plus faire demi-tour. En plus parfois on ne gagne même pas de temps à avoir pris ce raccourci du coup! Il faudrait pouvoir faire un signalement "cette route n'est accessible que pour: et lister les types de véhicules différents"
