  1. Routes via faster alternate paths

    I've noticed lately that Waze has been suggesting routes very similar to the routes suggested by Google Maps: through avenues and main streets that are most often jammed. Some time ago, Waze suggested smarter routes, avoiding traffic jams and going deeper into neighborhoods. The route was longer, but much faster. Today, he insists on passing only the main streets and this considerably increases the travel time. When the path is known I always follow the routes suggested in the past by Waze and 100% of the time I save between 5 to 10 minutes, which is a lot of time…

  2. level crossings

    I was wondering whether you have looked into using real time train information to inform the Waze journey planner.

    This would be most relevant where there are level crossings, and would allow to reroute drivers when the crossing is about to go down.

    I believe that currently, Waze only reroute drivers once the crossing has already gone down causing congestion rather than pre-emptively.

    I’d be really interested to hear your thoughts on the subject and the feasibility of this.

  3. Fermeture récurrente de voirie

    Une municipalité a décidé de fermer une partie de rue le matin de 8h15 à 8h35 pour sécuriser l’entrée d'une école élémentaire les lundi, mardi, jeudi et vendredi hors jours fériés et vacances scolaires.
    Comment automatiser cette fermeture récurrente ?

  7. Mr

    Sometimes a route changes mid-route. I would like to set a limit thus that the route only changed if the change resulted in a savings (of a length of time I can set). So "only change route if there is a savings of 5 minutes"0

  8. Better customization options in the settings

    I think you should be able to customize your own GPS to be able to avoid certain streets and also to always take Highway as first route priority

  9. Show All Alternate Route Information and Make It Easier to See and Select While Driving

    When driving on a route, Waze lets you select alternate routes. However, there is not enough information given to make an informed choice.

    Examples:
    A) Waze may suggest a different freeway than the one you're currently on, but to get to that freeway you may be routed on side streets. You know that the traffic on the side streets is not accurately reported by Waze and are busy at that time of day and so you would avoid that route if you knew Waze would route you that way.

    B) Waze senses that traffic is getting worse ahead and suggests…

  10. "Always Avoid This Intersection"

    Waze needs an "Always Avoid This Intersection" feature.
    Waze consistently routes me to turn left at a traffic light at an intersection that has 6 lanes of traffic merging into a single lane to get on to a freeway which is also controlled by a traffic light. The congestion there is ALWAYS terrible and easily adds 20 minutes to my commute. Users with local knowledge should be able to specify intersections to avoid at all times. This "avoid list" would be user specific, thereby allowing each user to maintain it (add/delete intersections) as necessary.

  13. In Chatham township Nj please stop directing people to turn onto spring st off of Lafayette instead of driving straight to southern Blvd- yn

    In Chatham township stop directing cars to turn onto spring st from Lafayette Ave instead of staying on Lafayette until southern Blvd to make a right. You are directing too many cars onto quiet residential streets- please keep the traffic on the main roads in residential neighborhoods- the speed limit on the quiet streets is 25 vs 35 on southern blvd

  15. Show roads with raised structures with navigation options to avoid those roads

    Exactly as the title states. Users can report a road as being under construction with raised structures. In route options, uses have the ability to avoid roads that are under construction.

  17. Pesquisa de rotas

    Algo simples, mas que até agora não vi por aqui:
    A possibilidade de se "calcular" a distância entre um Ponto A até o ponto B, estando você no momento em outra localização, tipo, no ponto C....

    Exemplo: estou agora em casa, mas gostaria de saber quanto tempo e qual a melhor rota pra sair de um shopping até o aeroporto ou até mesmo a rodoviária da minha cidade, sem necessariamente ter que estar lá no shopping pra poder "descobrir" isso....
