  1. One Touch Reports in Car Play / Android Auto - Customizable

    It would be great to have the ability to customize one-touch reports.
    See the attached imgur photo.
    In this case, I made vehicle on shoulder, police, and object on the road as my "One Touch."
    I also added a compass to the navigation bar on the bottom left. (The compass I used is far too busy for Waze.)

    Most of my driving involves within 20 or 30 miles. I usually know where I'm going and don't need directions I would just like to monitor what's out in front of me like accidents construction police and so forth. On my small mobile app screen real estate is prime and that search box which I can't seem to move out of the way takes up a good portion of the space on my phone. It would be nice if we have the option not to have to select the drive destination just get in and drive I thought it worked…

  3. Run app on locked screen, so if phone is stolen other apps can’t be accessed

    In Brazil, many cellphones are stolen from inside the cars while waze is open, which allows criminals to have full access to other apps.
    It would be nice if there was a way for waze to run on the locked screen, so that we can still see the map, but the phone would have to be unlocked in order to access anything else.

  4. Burn-In Protection for organic displays (OLED / AMOLED)

    I drive 30-40k Kilometers per year and now I have the Top Direction Box and Red Button burned into my Phone.
    Please Implement a Burn-In Protection, a lot of high end Phones use Organic Displays theses days.
    I Do not really want to use Waze with my new Pixel until fixed!

  5. Move speedometer location

    I'm a motorcyclist and I don't like looking down to see the speedometer in bottom left corner.
    Would love to switch it to the top right or wherever I want.
    People have been asking for this feature for years and I am sure it is easy to implement!
    Maybe a larger speedometer too.

  6. Interface suggestion

    When asking if police or disabled car on side of the road, perhaps separate the “still there” and “not there” buttons. Perhaps one on the top and one on the bottom. Sometimes I accidentally click the wrong button as the car is bumpy and the buttons are too close together. FYI. This is on Apple CarPlay.

  7. Driver Avatars/Icons

    Gamification in apps like this can incentivize consumers to increase usage of your app. More frequent users ultimately increases your revenue from advertising and other potential sources. My idea is that you should incorporate a point/coin system that rewards users for driving miles using Waze. These points can then be used to buy avatars and icons in place of the boring arrow that represents the driver. The more points you save up, the cooler avatars you can buy. Potentially, the points can be used for gift cards and other rewards that you may come up with. In the end, this…

  8. Offset turn instruction

    Oftentimes at standard, perpendicular intersections, streets dead-end on one side and pick up again on the other side, offset by just a few dozen feet. For simplicity's sake and for routing, we map a lot of these as plain four-way intersections (like an italicized + sign, you could say).

    But this can be confusing for drivers, who arrive at the intersection with no special instruction and yet are forced to almost fully turn right or left. The simple four-way mapping style is appropriate when the offset would still allow a car's width to pass through without turning, but when there…

  9. Ability to disable features

    Give users ability to disable/opt-out of CarPool. I drive for work, and cannot have passengers, but frequently have navigation blocked by the "Carpool" screen when adjusting my phone in the holder / accidental contact with right side of screen.

  10. "User state" option

    "User state" option: Invite the user to each opening of the application, to choose the way in which it is going to be mobilized (always open in default with the last state)
    In this way, Waze will be able to immediately segregate user data when it does not correspond to, for example, driving a car.
    1) driver of (a) car; (b) Taxi driver -uber etc-; (c) buses; (d) loaded truck; (e) empty truck
    2) passenger of (a) car; (b) Taxi -uber etc-; (c) bus, train, tram, subway passenger; (d) loaded truck; (e) empty truck
    3) cyclist;
    4) pedestrian;
    5) I…

  11. Please give the ability to turn off the "carpool" button

    The carpool button is the bane of my Waze existence. Whenever I pick up my phone from the little pocket area in the car and Waze is running, it triggers this "carpool" button. Then it takes both hands to swipe from the far left side of the screen to make it go away. I won't ever use the carpool function and would love to be able to hide it and stop this from happening. I know it sounds trivial, but it's maddening to deal with.

  12. Big "stop Waze" button

    Sometimes (often) you just want to stop and close Waze. But you have to go through menus, which is DANGEROUS while driving. There should be a big readily-visible X on the main navigation screen. Or alternatively, a big readily-visible MUTE button.

  13. Group toll passes & exemptions by country and/or state

    It would be great that if in the app the Toll passes and exemptions would be grouped by country and/or state. As there are a gazillion ones in the list it's hard to find the ones you want to choose.

    Ex. Belgium -> LEZ Antwerp, LEZ Bruxelles, LEZ Ghent and etc.
    France -> Crit'Air 1,2,3,4,5,E
    Germany -> Umweltplakette Grün, Umweltplakette gelb.

    Regards

  14. Optimize UI for 2din car navigation, remove "Where to" searchbox

    Hello,

    I have car multimedia that has 2 din rack. This is pretty common size for older cars with additionally bought multimedia devices and unfortunately the resolution for such devices is rarely over 1024x600.

    These devices are always positioned in landscape mode. Sadly waze looks really bad with such low rez and in landscape ... the searchbox "Where to" takes half of the screen. The navigation arrows/directions are also taking a lot of space. This leaves only small portion of the map visible and the app is not easy for use as well.

    Please optimize the UI for low rez…

  17. Search bar for Tolls and HOV passes

    In the Tolls and HOV passes menu, there are a lot of passes for a while (in the past there were only passes for my country), and I have to scroll through them to find the pass I'm looking for. It is really a lot, I guess for the whole of Europe. It would be beneficial to have a search bar for this menu to be able to filter/search passes.
