  1. Remove submenus from report “hazard” in CarPlay/AA.

    To report road works, or a stopped car you need to click report then select hazard, then select 1 of 3 submenus and then select the hazard inside the submenu, I think this is unnecessary, since there is enough space in the CarPlay main report menu to separate the “hazard” button into 3 separate icons, each corresponding to one of the previous submenus, this wold eliminate an entire step in the reporting process, making it safer, and therefore more people wold use it.

  2. Street name covering nav line

    When I plug my iPhone 11 into the car play in my car and use the app, it can be frustrating that when I come to a turning, the street name often covers the route (the blue line) so I can't see the turning easily. I suggest fixing it so the street names never sit over the blue navigation line. Thanks.

  3. Add Soundcloud and to Audio Player

    Soundcloud is the only popular audio player that is not included in the media/audio player. I have seen a lot of other people request that this be added.

  4. Why do some reports require two confirmations in Car Play?

    Why do some report confirmations require "Still There" to be selected twice? It seems to be based on distance from the incident for some reason, i.e. if I'm very close it seems to need on, but farther away asks twice.

  5. Close Waze app when CarPlay terminates

    This is a simple idea that would have a profound beneficial effect. My phone gets hot in my pocket because I get out of my car and forget that Waze is still running. It gets hot unless I close that app manually after removing it from my car. Just give us an option to close the app upon disconnection from CarPlay. thx

  6. Ability to Select HOV Routes in Carplay

    Right now, when checking different routes, you cannot select an HOV route in Carplay (they just do not show up). You can still select it in the iOS app, but for some reason the Carplay app won't accept the route when you select it from the app. It requires you to select a route on the Carplay app (which doesn't include the HOV routes).

    The only workaround I found is to set the HOV route before you connect to Carplay, but if you update the route during the trip, it loses the HOV route ability unless you disconnect Carplay while…

  7. Add Dark Mode Toggle Button on Apple CarPlay Display

    On Apple CarPlay, when the vehicle headlights are on, Waze switches to Night Mode. This seems to be independent of the phone settings.

    The only way to change this is to use the phone app and change the Map Display/Dark Mode setting to Off. This is not a good solution while operating a vehicle.

    This could be fixed by adding a Day/Night (Dark Mode) toggle button on the CarPlay display.

  9. Following the update of my Apple phone 12 Pr Max to IOS 16, currently 16.1 there is considerable battery drain and overheating of the phone

    Eversince I updated my iphone 12 pro max to IOS is whenever I use Apple Carplay and especially WAZE the phone overheats significantly in a very short timespan and also the battery drops dramatically in no time.
    Is Waze aware of this problem ? Are they doing something to fix it.
    The same issue does not occur when I use other navigation software’s in Apple Carplay.

    Please fix it as I can not continue using Waze with such dramatic battery use and overheating of the phone!

  11. UX buttons distribution

    When waze asks if there is an accident/police/car/anything in the street the buttones are too close so if you are driving it is very difficult to answer yes or no, you should put the right and left or top and bottom, so it is easy to answer.

  12. Fix speed icons size and location on screen.

    Speed icons are way too small to see. Countries that drive on right side move icons to left side of screen. Know problem for years. Please fix.

  14. Need an update for overheating phone!!

    When using Waze on CarPlay it causes my phone to heat up quickly and end up stop charging and kills my battery ( 40% in an hour) by running Waze on CarPlay. This needs addressed. It started happening after the iOS 16 update and doesn’t do it with any other navigation app or any other app period.

    Please fix this. Oh and add stop signs yield signs and traffic lights to the app as well.

  15. Please fix Waze CarPlay lag

    CarPlay lags almost a full minute upon input. Your position in the map is also delayed. So turn by turn directions will be missed. Waze CarPlay is almost unusable.

  16. turn not allowed for next turn on carplay

    When the turn I need to make is not available, I should be able to say "turn not available" in the edits while using carplay.
    There isn't a need to be able to edit multiple streets, just the turn Waze is asking for because I need to be able to be re-directed in a foreign area.

  18. Acura HUD and Dash turn by turn

    New Acura and Honda allow turn by turn directions on dash and HUD. Apple Maps works but Waze doesn’t. Seems like new cars with digital dash are getting more in depth with apple carplay. 23 Acura integra for example have these features.

  19. Prevent Constant Navigation pop-up while using other CarPlay apps.

    I drive a Mazda CX-5 and whilst the car is in motion the CarPlay touchscreen is disabled and I interact with the interface using a wheel and buttons to move the focus and activate controls.

    When using Waze to navigate and switching to music or Spotify or another app Waze will pop up notifications for alerts or upcoming navigation events.

    When forced to use the wheel to control the interface this pop up is extremely annoying and interferes with controlling the CarPlay interface. It is so intrusive that I will be navigating songs etc and when I click to activate…

  20. CarPlay Final Destination

    Please please please start making it where on Apple CarPlay the final destination pen is either on the left or the right where the final destination actually is because it’s always just on the right and that makes me think my destination is on the right but then when I look at the little flag icon that’s on the left that confuses me even more and takes my attention off the road
