  1. Detour update

    I use Waze everytime I travel. It's a great app and very user friendly. However when it sends you on a detour (ex: because of construction or an accident ahead), it should say why it's changed (why your taking a detour) your original path. I was traveling by myself over night and didn't take the detour, because I was uncomfortable and unfamiliar with the detour it suggested) to take and got stuck in a construction traffic jam.

  6. Waze has the framework to potentially help avoid chain reaction vehicle accidents

    I have been studying chain reaction vehicle accidents for years and I belive that Waze may have most of the architecture already in place to alert drivers not yet at the accident scene to slow or stop, which would minimize or eliminate the wreckage, injuries and deaths that occur when low-visability causes vehicles to continue running into a crash site, creating a chain reaction accident. My request is to communicate with one of your engineers to discuss the concept.

  8. Speedometer size and location

    On my 9 inch car android, speedometer is barely visible.
    1. The size should be adjustable.
    2. The colors should be adjustable.
    3. The position should be moveable.
    4. Beeping sound and duration should be customizable.
    5. Speed limit should blink after certain speed limit

  9. Radares velocidad

    Deberían permitir el aviso de radares independientemente de que se supere o no la velocidad de la vía.

  10. Upcoming Speed limit

    It would be great if Waze could give a(n optional) warning if a speed limit comes up (similar to construction area warning). This enables the driver to lower the speed before - instead of brake down the speed when the limited zone begins.
    This would be very helpful especially on German motorways, which haven’t a general limit and where you have to brake hard e.g. before construction areas.

  11. Lower speed threshold setting

    All of the speed threshold settings are for at or above the speed limit. By the time the alert goes off I am already breaking the speed limit. It would be nice to set a threshold like 3 or 5 mph below the speed limit to prevent ever going over.

  13. Roadkill

    What happened to the "RoadKill" alert? I personally think it's a mistake removing it from the current Waze Alerts. Please bring it back.

  14. Speed camera audible alert issue

    I'm not sure if this is the same for all or just an issue with my install but it would be good to have an audible alert for every speed camera that I pass on a journey because at present the only audible alert I get is for the first camera I pass, there after, all additional cameras only show up as a visual alert.

  15. Re-enable Other Side Police Reporting

    Otherside Police Reporting- This was probably one of the best features of the App- other than the same side regular police notification. It gives a warning for less traveled roads that may have a Waze user traveling in the other direction on a less traveled road whereas a same way traveler has not yet passed and left an Alert. PLEASE BRING THAT FEATURE BACK ASAP!

  16. Put in ability for users to opt out of political notifications

    Give the ability to opt out of emails and other notifications that are not related to using the waze app for driving. I don't want to receive political types of notifications such as the "celebrate pride with waze" email.

  17. Option to always notify speed cameras

    The idea is to add an option to notify when there is a speed camera either always or only when you are speeding (which is the default currently). Some times you can speedup a bit near the camera and you will get the ticket.
    With this option you will know the location of all the speed cameras and will be able to decide whether to accelerate or not depending if there is or not a camera.

  19. Consecutive alerts within a short distance

    At the moment, the Waze app provides alerts (such as hazard reports or speed/red light camera) approximately 400-500m away from the location. After driving past the report or camera, Waze doesn't check if there are any further alerts in the next 400-500m and as such, drivers miss out on this information.

    An example is at the first traffic light, there is a red light camera, however after turning, the next traffic light (assuming it is relatively close/within 500m) also has a red light camera. Drivers currently only receive one alert for the first red light camera but not for the…

    Problem: speed limit audible alerts stop even though i'm still speeding. I need loud annorying audible alerts that don't stop, while speeding.
    I need more customization of the audible speeding alerts, so i don't get speeding tickets.
