  1. Waze NEEDS "Bread Crumbs".

    One thing waze should have is "Bread Crumbs". I miss this feature on my old Garmin units. It basically leaves a dotted trail behind your path so you can easily find your way back without having to enter a new destination.

  2. Show alternate route traffic

    Give the capability to tap the screen to see alternate route traffic. For instance, Original Route goes from Point A to B to C to D to E. Along the way, WAZE reroutes and goes from A to B to M to N to E.
    It would be beneficial to the user to be able to tap the screen, and see both routes- the new one, and the original with red where the traffic is.

  3. Route choice

    Hello, would it be possible to add choices of route type, for example shortest or fastest. Cause now it's not clear how he tries to lead us and lately it seems it's not logical at all. For example, I was driving through Autobahn in night, where I can drive on 140km/h but waze taught it would be a great idea to change this route to a small forest road that has a 30 km/h speed limit with bumps on road.

  6. HOV only ramps and roads

    When Wazers select an HOV route, because of the way HOV was implemented, any direct access ramp or otherwise HOV only road will never be suggested.

    Waze needs to be able to suggest all HOV options, including HOV only flyovers and ramps.

  7. Rank routes by least number of minutes in traffic

    For a long drive, calculate "% of time spent in traffic" and "# of minutes spent in traffic" and include that as a criteria.

    We just stared at 3 different routes for a 4+ hour drive that had varying lengths and amount of time in stop & go traffic. We would have liked to have selected easily "the one that makes the car move the most and has the least stop & go, so we don't get car sick and our children don't wake up."

  8. Straighter/easier routes setting

    There should be a way to set a preference for straighter/easier routes. Often, Waze suggests a route with a bunch of turns down small side streets or a really curvy road just to save one minute on a 20-minute drive when there was a more direct route such as a main road or highway. With this preference enabled, Waze would default to a route with a slightly longer duration that is much simpler and requires fewer turns.

  9. Avoid specific tolls

    Can you make it possible to avoid specific roads (specifically tolls)
    Let's say I'm in Indiana heading to Chicago. I want to get on the toll road in Indiana, but get off before the Chicago Skyway because it's more expensive.
    Can you make it so I can still have it take me on the toll road in Indiana, but take me off before the skyway?

  10. Remove street tags

    It will be good to remove street names tags from the route, especially near turns . I did lost couple times just because I couldn't see where exactly I should turn because street name tag was exactly on my arrow.

  11. Toll

    I wish that there's an onscreen button to turn On/Off "Avoid Tolls" for easy access. So that I'll never need to go to Settings every trip to turn it On/Off. And so that I'll have additional route options.

  12. Create a bus/school bus icon

    I am a bus driver and use Waze not only in my car but on trips to areas that are not always familiar to me for work. A bus is larger than a car but smaller than a truck. Sometimes routes good for car travel aren't quite wide enough for a bus and you could show us that.

  13. Restricted areas feature

    Give people the ability to label areas within waze as "not safe" so waze can route loved ones around high crime areas. This would not be a crowd sourced data point but a parent could label parts of town (think...draw a polygon around an area) as restricted or unsafe. This would keep vulnerable children out of high crime areas or areas with known offenders.

  15. The pervious version was better as it automatically started the drive with a count down. Now I have to confirm the route every time I start

    Also one cannot easily schedule the drive for later as before. Now one has to go through some planning workflow. The planned drives does not include the planning of ferries schedules.

  16. The new version change makes it much more difficult to plan a trip for the following day. The last version was excellent.

  17. 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"

  18. show public transportation routes

    We're in a climate crisis and everybody should drive less when there are alternatives available.
    Waze should help with that by suggesting Public Transportation or bicycle routes when selecting a destination, when those routes are viable alternatives (don't bother showing a 3h bus route for a 10 min drive).
    This could be similar to Google Maps and use the same data.
    Just by showing that there are alternatives, the user might be tempted to try them.
    This might be specially useful when driving in cities that have car restrictions, dedicated bus lanes or good bicycle infrastructure that rivals congestion, where…

  19. Make option to avoid international borders

    Drove from Boston to Michigan and the app continuously tried rerouting us through Canada to save time! Please add an option to avoid international borders so we don't have to worry about being sent through another country if traffic builds ahead.

  20. Make "Do not avoid Pay Roads" assume all Vignettes / Tolls paid

    When driving through Europe, Waze avoids highways even when the option "avoid toll roads" is turned off (it should use toll roads). Each country has a different vignette. Travelling a 5h car ride from Crostia to Austria can take you through Slovenia or Hungary. To use highways you need to add the Vignette for Austria, Hungary, and Slovenia. That takes time and is confusing and inconvenient.

    Solution: when "Avoid toll roads" is disabled, take any road a typical car would drive, including all vignettes you buy in that country. Assume the driver will buy them. Give infos about tolls and…
