  2. Tow Mode

    I often tow a trailer for work, and use Waze to go everywhere - but often time saving routes will take me down side streets and laneways that are narrow and difficult to navigate with a trailer. Same would apply for touring with a caravan.

    It would be awesome to have a mode that minimizes tight turns, side streets or intersections without traffic lights.

  3. Traffic Jam Standstill Should be much slower

    Waze needs to read the speed of Wazers in a Standstill Traffic Jam better. In the last couple of months, I have not been re-routed around terrible standstill traffic jams because Waze thinks the "Standstill" is moving at 15 mph when, in reality, you're literally idling and moving a few feet every couple of minutes. I see where the app tracks Wazers, so why can't it use their average speed, which was closer to 3 mph? In the last few months, I have been caught in very long traffic jams because Waze thinks the route your on is faster than…

  4. Custom Routes to avoid Major Cities Centers

    This goes to having customized routes, I was driving from the Northeast to SC, this would make me drive through heavily congested areas like NYC and Waze always wants to make me use the GW bridge, which is a horrible route if you have ever driven it. There should be an option to choose less congested routes, example I would choose to use the Verrazano Bridge route that takes me around the city. This should be an option for heavily congested large cities, Wash D.C., Philly, etc...

  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. Gas station stops by fuel range

    Ability to enter fuel range of your vehicle to automatically suggest stops on long trips. When driving long distances, I have to make the destination a gas station that is *** miles away, then change my destination at that stop to the next gas station, then finally add my final destination at the last gas stop. Would be nice to enter a final destination and then a fuel range of 350 miles and suggest as many stops are needed.

  8. Penalise routing through unpaved roads

    Problem:
    Users with "allow unpaved roads" attribute on the client are oftenly routed through unpaved roads. They complain on why they are routed through these when other routes are available.

    Description:
    Unpaved roads are often rough, uncomfortable and dirty. When the user has selected "allow unpaved roads" they expect to see better routes. When there are no other available options to get to a place, or when the paved option is tens of kilometers longer, then unpaved roads make sense. However, when there are several routes with paved roads and some unpaved roads, users are not expecting to drive through…

  9. Give Option to Confirm Address when starting Route

    I want to confirm the address Waze is taken me to before the route starts. If I say take me to X, it automatically starts the route without letting me confirm or see the address it is taking me to.

  11. Save Driven route button

    Can you put a button at the completion of a route that we're able to save the route as driven? I've use my saved destinations many times and on some, Waze doesn't give me the best route.. Waze may think it's the best route but in reality it's not.. I'd like to be able to save my route as I drove it. There are times, many, where there is a detour and the locals don't give you a way out and leave you in never never land.. Thanks

  12. Capitalize on the Great American solar eclipse 2024

    I'm not sure if you all are already thinking about this, but I think it would be really smart to capitalize on the upcoming Great American solar eclipse on April 8th. I've noticed that Waze is good about navigating large crowds of vehicles through the available road systems when a lot of people are running the app, so I think it would be great to market and advertise to folks that they should be using the app in order to alleviate the traffic and smooth everything out. I know I will be running the app, especially on my way home!

  13. Provide an alternative route when accident in front of me

    I need the app to provide enough in advance an exit off highway with an alternative toure. It happens to me all the time that Waze gets me stuck in the constipation. ******* banana. It used to work this way. Not anymore. I am crazy.

  15. Add "HIGHWAY FIRST" to route preference

    When there are several routes available, I've noticed that Waze may calculate a route that combines both ground roads and highways. This is done to save a little time or reduce toll fees but can result in entering the highway from a distant entrance or exiting the highway too early. This approach leads to more instances of entering and exiting, as well as increased interactions with other drivers, which is unnecessary and more dangerous.

    I suggest implementing a "HIGHWAY FIRST" preference. When a highway is available, the system should calculate a route that prioritizes the use of highways, even if…

  16. Please include tunnel closures in your map feature so routes will avoid them in Singapore

    There are many tunnels closure in Singapore in the middle of the night. Would be helpful for drivers if we get routes that avoid them

  17. Routes

    When using carplay with Iphone: in oorder to see all the routes, one need to click on the arrow and then a window opens with the initial route already offered, and the request to click again on the screen to see all the routes. The second click on the screen is completely unnecessary because it is clear that if I click the first time to see routes I would like to see all the options (usually 3 ). Maybe you can check its cancellation. Thank you

  18. adding no commercial plates filter

    Allowing a filter for choosing passenger cars only routes or commercial vehicles allowed. This would be helpful to plan routes and side routes avoiding parkways or roads in the NYC area which do not allow commercial plated vehicles on those roads

  19. Boat trailer option

    Please add an option for towing a trailer. I'll be towing a 23' boat from DC to ME in August. Generally this can only go on interstates and roads without height restrictions. I know from past drives that Waze will try to take us on the Merritt or Taconic parkways where trailers are not allowed and clearance is low

  20. Improved Automatic Re-Routing for Traffic Congestion in Waze

    We would like to propose an enhancement to Waze's automatic re-routing feature to provide users with greater control and flexibility when navigating around traffic congestion.

    Currently, Waze offers basic re-routing, but it lacks the ability to:

    Prioritize surface streets or alternate highways/freeways: This would be particularly valuable for users who prefer avoiding congested highways altogether, even if it means a slightly longer route.

    Define granular re-routing preferences: A binary on/off toggle is limiting. We propose options similar to existing route preferences (fastest/shortest) that allow users to:

    Set time windows for re-routing: For example, automatically re-route during known rush hour periods.
