  1. Remove "where to" search bar so it doesn't block the map

    Hi,

    I've been using the Waze app for years and love it!

    I do have one tiny problem though. Since the latest update, there is a "Where to?" search bar that WILL NOT GO AWAY!  This search bar is now taking up 1/3 of the map screen.   Can you please remove this search bar or make it so that it can be hidden?

    Thank you.

    Sincerely, 

    Graham Duvall

  3. Display bridges on top instead of higher road type

    Currently in the app if a bridge goes over a higher road type, it makes it seem the higher road type actually goes over the bridge. This should not be correct as it makes the map look incorrect. A segment that has been mapped as a higher elevation should be displayed above any other segment.

    Example for this interchange:
    Instead of this: https://i.imgur.com/WhRYooz.jpg
    It should look like this: https://i.imgur.com/Gf6BI31.jpg

  6. Bottom Bar.

    The bar at the bottom that has search and carpool need to have a button to turn it off. It is not needed while driving and when on my motorcycle and my phone is turned on its side the bar takes up over half my screen making it impossible to see the map.

  8. Speedometer location customization

    When using the phone mounted to the right of the steering wheel, the speedometer in the lower left corner of the screen is often blocked from view by the steering wheel. It would be great if there were options for different locations to place the speedometer. Being that the speedometer is a more often hands off tool on the screen it should be able to be placed in more optimum locations vs the report button.

  9. Remove permanent "where to" and "my Waze" fields when phone is horizontal.

    I use Waze with my phone in a horizontal/landscape position. All is good if I set a location target and use Waze to guide me to it. But I sometimes I like to see the traffick volume without setting a destination. In this mode, Waze takes up a third of my map display with the "where to" and "my Waze" fields. I should be able to turn those off or they should auto disappear.

  10. Weather Overlay Option

    Have a real-time weather overlay you can opt to turn on or turn off. This will help others see the weather ahead of their planned route. Let's make this happen Waze!

  12. Afficheur des limitations de vitesses

    A 57 ans, je vous assure que la taille de caractères pour l'affichage de la vitesse actuelle et des limitations de vitesses est beaucoup trop petite.
    Il serait super de pourvoir choisir la taille de cet afficheur (ex. Normal, grand, extra big) .

  15. Waze widget/PIP

    It might be useless on cell phones, but there are thousands of users running 3rd party Android radios in their cars. It would be great if there was a navigation widget or at least PIP option (similar to Google maps) which could be integrated into custom Android radio launchers. Is there any chance we'll see it in future?

  16. Thanks/Not There

    Instead of having the alert (example “Vehicle Stopped) and then the two options (Thanks / Not There)… you should have Thanks on top, the alert in the middle, and not there on the bottom. This will reduce accidental misreporting. We’re trying to drive and can’t stare at the screen. Help us help you. 😀

  17. Where to box

    The 'where to' box covers a good portion of the map. It should go away while driving. It's both dangerous and illegal to use/type on your phone when driving. Why encourage dangerous illegal activity? Yes we can just not use waze if we know where we're going, but waze has always encouraged having it running while driving because it helps report traffic flow and road hazards. Again, illegal and dangerous while driving. Add a tiny 'destination' button so a passenger can open it and set the destination while moving, but should never ask a driver to type on the screen…

  18. Automatic setting for distance units

    I've just returned to the UK from a holiday in Israel. I have to change the distance units manually both in the UK and in Israel. Could this be picked up automatically? It's not very convenient because you only realise they are wrong once you are driving.

  19. Display when phone is upside down

    Sometime while driving a car, charging (bottom)is on the top side. Suggest WAZE to have feature when allow phone rotation, even upside down, still display readable like a normal screen. Google Map is able to do this.

  20. Speeding Camera icon

    I suggest that the Speeding Camera icon can be more obvious or may be larger on map.. Coz I sometimes I mistook the icon as other wazers.. Or wazer icons are too much to cover over the speeding camera icon... Thank you for reviewing my feedback.
