  1. It would be very helpful if there was an option to show roads that don’t allow pulling trailers

    Waze does not give an option to show or redirect when you’re pulling a trailer. Some roads such as the Merritt Parkway don’t allow trailers. Sometimes we trailer motorcycles going south from Ct.

  3. Large purple route line hides traffic color info

    When in navigation mode the purple route line hides the yellow and red lines showing traffic congestion. This discourages me from using waze. Please implement the route line like Google maps with the whole route line changing colors based on traffic instead of hiding this information with a huge purple route line. If this is hard to implement then just shrink the purple route line to be about 1/4 as wide so you can see the traffic color information underneath.

    There is a duplicate version of this here that appears to have been disabled.

  4. Safer crossings

    Please do not direct to a route where you have to cross into traffic. When there is a safe alternative that takes you to a safe stoplight. And is same time /miles
    Like Apollo beach Blvd. to central which crossed Ty 42 at a stop sign turning left into two lanes of heavy traffic. Vs. turn left on ******* to light at rt41

  5. Guardar una ruta o recorrido habitual

    Además de poder guardar lugares como casa trabajo, debería poder guardarse otros lugares, que se usan habitualmente y lo más importaste: guardar recorridos habituales.
    Por ejemplo en la mañana escuela / trabajo y en las tarde escuela / supermercado / casa.
    En general hacemos las mismas rutas diariamente.

  7. Pause route feature

    Being able to pause the directions would be really nice. On a long drive on a highway I might turn onto a rest stop or to get some gas. Hypotheticalically I might even want to stop to see a giant ball of twine. It would be really nice if I could stop the GPS from freaking out about the wrong turn.
    I generally don't need the GPS to go to the rest stop or to find the gas station, and I don't want a notification to take a break.
    However, being able to pause my directions would be nice as…

  8. "personal speed limit"

    Personaly set speed limit :
    Having a "personaly set speed limit" feature that could be set for a given trip planning, independantly from the speed figures of the drives taken in the past (i.e unlike the already existing Personalized ETA feature) would allow to get planning results corresponding to one's own speed limit decisions, whether they be for EV range optimisation, trailer towing, vehicle capabilities, fuel efficiency on combustion engine vehicles, or other reasons... That would actually also allow to see what is the time cost of "taking it easy".

  9. botão de escolha opções por portagens

    Hello! Beautiful Souls! Thank you for having WAZE!

    ¨Creating a TOLLS / NON TOLLS / PARTIAL TOLLS BUTTON"
    I recommend an innovation, we could have at Waze main screen, after we insert destination, NEW BUTTON would pop up and ask ACCORDING TO DIFFERENT WAZE SUGGESTED TOLL CHARGES which of the routes we would take.

    This would allow the user to pick from different optional routes, according to our budget and route preferences.

    For example, if I am on a route Lisbon - Faro, I am crossing the bridge, and willing to pay 3,50 for the first toll, but I would…

  11. Traffic Reduction in Neighborhoods

    With the onset of technology and GPS guided directions, it is quite apparent there is grave concern for the safety of home owners on once quiet and less traveled residential roads.

    The number 1 and redundant (and justified, I might add!) complaint is drivers are being directed into populated neighborhoods causing a significant increase in potential risk of accidents.

    In my case, for example, I live on a narrow, twisting dirt/gravel road with countless potholes, and no sidewalks for pedestrians or room for folks on horseback.

    WAZE sends drivers onto this road because it seems, or appears to be a…

  12. Feature to Avoid Specific Road

    I really do love Waze! You guys are great! But can you PLEASE add an option to avoid specific roads (or steps of a route)? There’s a route that Waze directs me on my commute daily, both ways, that includes 2 roads that are extremely dangerous. I don’t mean difficult intersections or something like that. I mean regularly reported gun violence, car jackings at stop signs/lights, and gang activity. I literally had this map editing option back in the days of printing out mapquest directions… any kind of option would be wonderful! Thank you!

  13. Low clearance feature

    There should be a feature that allows you to select routes for oversized trucks- tractor trailers keep getting stuck in the sumner tunnel or moving trucks on storrow drive all the time!! This is Boston MA but I’m sure other places could benefit too

  14. Road Safety Level

    Waze should add the option into the Map Editor to choose a safety level of a segment/road - in parts of the world, like in South America for example, in some streets you can come across gangs, shootings and other related life-threatening situations. Though, the feature can also he used for roads in dangerous or high terrain. And, the road safety level should then appear when choosing routes - when Waze calculates all possible routes - the safest one should say "Safest Route". Safety level should be determined by numbers (for example, 0 safest, 10 most dangerous). This would drastically…

  16. UK time restrictions (School Streets)

    Monday to Friday
    No entry between 8am and 9:15am."
    And 2:45pm and 4:00pm."

    There are loads of these signs in hundreds of cities all over the UK especially London. Can't we allow for local map editors to save time based restrictions into the map?

  18. Put locations at top of 'Where To' list at set time and day

    I often do things same time each week. It would be great to have the option to set a time and a day for saved locations.

    This would mean if I open Waze around 5:30pm on any Tuesday or Thursday, (this) item will start at the top of my 'Where To' list.

    This feature would work best in conjunction with a 'Silent' option for each saved location. Since I go to certain places frequently, I already know how to get there.

    Setting a Saved Location to 'Silent' would mean directions are only read aloud to the driver IF THEY DIFFER…

  19. avoid streets with poor road surface (loopholes, etc.)

    assign a score to each street (ask the drivers), calculate the average score for each route and include it in the choice. + an option to chose the best quality road.

    but currently the choice of three routes does not work at all: just yesterday the service have permanently ignored my choice instead trying to drive me over the route it considered shorter, despite my other choice. No option to complaine to this on the site.

  20. Fastest route regardless of toll fees

    Currently Fastest Route takes toll amount and distance into consideration. Many times, better routes with much higher tolls + a longer highway detour is in fact faster.

    While there is an option to opt out of tolls, there is no way to have the "Fastest" route regardless.

    Fastest should mean really the fastest and not "according to what Waze thinks people might want".
