  3. 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

  4. Add the ability to see lane merges ahead of you.

    Might be nice to be shown arrows if you have a merge coming ahead of you on the route similar to how it shows lanes for exits, turns, ect.

    This can prove useful if there is traffic and you can either pre-change to avoid having to merging or can stay in the merging lane to zipper merge later saving you time.

  5. Quality of road surface w/ permanence

    Allow users to report the quality of the road surface (beyond the occasion pothole / object in the road). A crowd sourced critique of how smooth/good the road surface is that has “permanence”. Like construction notices, when planning routes out of town, this could help drivers avoid bad sections of Interstate/ State routes. Add this category to reporting button so drivers can share their assessment, recheck every mile (“still a road quality of rough?) once a driver flags the road surface as poor / rough / bumpy / etc. Not to be alerted, but to be used in route planning…

    Hi,

    I live in Northern Virginia in the Washington DC suburbs. Many of my trips take me around the DC Beltway and on other roads that have "Hot Lanes." The Hot Lanes generally operate next to the regular lanes, but being toll lanes, sometimes move faster, which is why some people use them. 

    Most of the time, I don't use Hot Lanes because most of the time, they don't get me there appreciably faster and are not worth the money. There have, however, been times when I would have liked to have known how much time I could save by…

  7. Left hand HOV Lanes

    Waze does not reliably suggest HOV lanes. When HOV lanes are dedicated, Waze will regularly suggest them when selecting an HOV route, but when it's a permissive lane (separated by dashed lines rather than separated by a physical barrier), Waze will not suggest the lane most of the time.

    When a Wazer selects an HOV route, permissive HOV lanes should be suggested.

  8. 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.

  9. Designated Trip Comparison

    I have several ways I can get to work. It would be handy to save them as designated trips which I could check to see which is the fastest way on any particular day this avoiding traffic jams

  11. The “Leave at a later time” feature DOES NOT WORK

    The “Leave at a later time” feature DOES NOT WORK. It DOES NOT save the destination, and DOES NOT alert me when it’s time to go. I don’t recall whether it ever did, but certainly never my iPhone 12 with iOS 16.x.x or (now) 17.1.1. Wish it did—it would be very convenient

  12. Safest route i.t.o. crime

    In countries like South Africa there are certain high crime areas that should be avoided. If you read the news there are frequent reports of tourists especially, taking a short route unknowingly through a dangerous area and becoming a victim of crime or worse being murdered (sadly this is true). It would be great if one could select a "safest route" option which may not necessarily be the quickest. PLEASE.

  13. erreur d'adresse sur le site

    Je suis commerçant d'une boutique Pieces Et Pneus.com à REZE (44400 - France) j'ai déménagé il y a maintenant plus d'un an, et je deplore qu'à ce jour l'adresse apparaissant sur votre site n'est toujours pas actualisée. l'ancienne adresse était 21 Place Pierre Sémard 44400 Rezé et l'actuelle est maintenant PIECES ET PNEUS.com 22 avenue Louise Michel 44400 REZE, je poste ce message car trop nombreuses sont les personnes qui sont encore dirigés vers la mauvaise adresse.
    Je vous remercie pour l'attention que vous voudrez bien m'accorder.

  15. When a second destination is entered, have the option to keep the first destination as a stop

    When a second destination is entered, have the option to keep the first destination as a stop. Currently if we set the second destination as new final destination the first destination is removed.

  16. Customized Price/Time rate for routes calculation

    Now Waze always propose an option of routes without toll which is good, but not enough for me
    Indeed, very often there is a compromise between full toll and no toll being relevant and worthy (cheaper than full toll, faster than no toll)

    To improce the relevency of the routes proposal an adjustable ratio price/time should be considered

    For exemple, for a ratio 1€/min, a toll road at 16€ for 20 min gain will be proposed but not another at 12€ for 10min gain compared to no toll option

  17. Add More Stops to A Trip

    It's very simple, I use Waze when my family and I travel. We have a newborn and a 3-4 year old. We stop about every hour, like clockwork. If we have a 6 hour drive, I can't add multiple stops. I have to start our drive, then add the first stop, restart the drive and add the second stop, etc. Could we get this updated so we get more than one stop in the trip?

  18. Suggest safest itineraries in case of floods

    It would be useful for Waze to default to safest routes (ie, least prone to flooding based on historical data which I am sure exists) in case of such weather events (even just suggest it in case it has been raining heavily in the last few days in a given area). The report flood button is not enough - how do I know the alternative itinerary I choose will be better or if no one has yet reported a flood?
    It is becoming increasingly necessary given the climate events the world faces.

  19. Leave by

    I suggest a "leave by" time as an option similar to the "arrive by" times displayed under the "leave later" when route selecting. For example, if I plan to leave at precisely 4pm (currently 320pm) it would display how long it would take and change as I scrolled through 430pm, 5pm, etc. I haven't seen anything on that yet, unless I missed it. Thanks for the user friendly, simple app, keep it up!

  20. waze travel

    I guess all road travelers would like the following idea.
    It won't be a bad idea if Waze adds an option or button called Waze Travel where the app suggests hotels Airbnb or camping areas for users when they have to travel for more than 8 hours so the distance can be cut in half.
    for example if I am traveling from a country to another and I have more than 8h hours on the road it takes me time to divide the distance locate the road I am tacking and then find hotels around the area.
    so that would…
