  1. Show street currently being driven on

    Where it currently prompts for Car Type or Vehicle Info in a blue oval near the bottom center, instead show which street is currently being driven on. The other prompts don't seem important enough to be in that prime space all the time. Sometimes when driving by sense of direction it can be easy to not know which road you're on and it never shows on the map itself.

  3. Continuous display of ALTITUDE

    It would be nice to see continuously the current altitude in Waze
    Sería bueno ver continuamente la altitud actual en Waze.

    זה יהיה נחמד לראות ברציפות את הגובה הנוכחי ב-Waze

  5. Add Rest Area/Gas station data to map

    Other mapping softwares include rest area/exit area information as you drive down a highway.

    The information appears on the map and shows where the next exit is, and briefly shows what services are available there.

    It’s helpful on longer trips where you may want to be maximizing your time on the highway. (For example, I may know that I have 50 miles left on a tank of fuel, but it’s not always clear if I need to stop immediately for fuel, or if there’s another service station 25 miles down the highway)

  7. More visibility in a landscape mode (tilted screen)

    Waze is great, I like to keep it running without any navigation / destination. In mobile's landscape mode (tilted screen) there is menu + search bar that takes about a half of the screen. Please make it as a pop up when touched or as a slider from the bottom/side of the screen. The visibility is close to none even with my 6.7" screen.

  9. 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.

  10. STOP sign icons at roads with stop signs 🛑

    Stop sign icons at roads with stop signs. I often switch to Google maps while in the city because a lot of roads in my city will have no stop signs for 3-4 cross streets, then bam a stop sign. A lot of stop signs are obacured also. The city doesn't keep up with keeping them visible.

  12. I vote for the route in the center of the screen on android car audio

    On android car radio the route is not in the center of the screen. Moreover - it is on the right side of the screen, at the maximum distance from the driver. It is very uncomfortable! Fix it please!

  14. Beginning of town (inhabited place) indication - for when to let off the gas in advance

    Indicate the next beginning of town somehow on the route.
    On the map and/or with info saying "beginning of town in 500m ... 400m ... 200m" etc.
    Or even just one popup saying "town in 300m".
    Or just with a marker on the map! That would also suffice.

    I have wanted this feature for years.
    Very hard to estimate when in an unknown area.
    For those of us mindful about eco driving, there is no point in pressing the gas pedal up until the sign and then braking suddenly from 90km/h to 50km/h.

    It would be nice to know when…

  15. Allow users to turn off points animation and sound

    The points animation feature and sound often blocks the map displayed temporarily in the bottom right corner. During the animation users can’t input another quick report until the animation finishes. User should be allowed the ability to turn off points animation, and the associated sound effect.

  17. Hide My Waze/Where to bars

    Make an option to hide My Waze/Where to? bars by default.
    No, contrary to what you PMs/Dev folks keep saying, these bars do NOT hide themselves.
    This is a show stopper. I cannot use the app like this, nor can most of us.
    Provide an option to start with those bars hidden and accessible by a swipe up from the bottom.
    Yes, I know this is a duplicate; but, y'all aren't listening to.your users about a P1 issue.
