  2. CLOSED STREET REPORT IMPROVEMENT

    Hello,

    I would like to suggest an improvement of Waze driver interface. Specifically cleaning up and making it easier for the driver to report a street live street closure. When doing that, the map that pops out makes it very difficult to recognize which street we want to indicate that is closed. Cleaning this option up and adding street names would greatly improve ability to report it and warn other drivers.

    Thank you in advance

  3. Mute social notifications

    The new +5 notifications keep interrupting my music and podcasts while driving. There is no setting under push, text, email or reports notifications to turn off the nags. Please let make it clear how to turn off sounds in the app, or at least let us turn off social sounds. Sound is the primary interface to Waze, it is extremely important to keep the signal to noise ratio high... Getting 10 social notifications a minute undermines navigation, alerts and Waze as a whole.

  4. Feature for reporting heavy rain/thunderstorm.

    Add a feature for reporting heavy rain/thunderstorm ahead as there is no function to report this reason now if there is a jam ahead due to these circumstances and people can only report fog or jail which is not suitable for describing the situation.

  5. Correct wing entry for fuel price

  6. A short instructional video on how to alert an accident, police, etc

    I would like to suggest the following: that a training video appear on behalf of the company on how to warn about an accident or the police, today that many people do not even know about the possibility of alerting, and only use the application to see alerts that others have written. Especially in the country of Panama where I live. So my idea is that once in a while a short instructional video will appear that will explain how to alert and register an accident or anything else with the police. Thank you

  7. Seperate the cars vs trucks

    I'm a tow truck driver and In my down time I try to respond to vehicles pulled over on the shoulder. Many times it's truck drivers sleeping. Please add an option to click car vs truck when alerting a vehicle pulled over so I can assist the motorists that need help faster. Thanks!

  8. Quicker Hazard Reporting

    There still needs to be a quicker way to report hazards. The long tap, swipe up or voice reports don't save much time and are still very distracting while driving. Perhaps a generic 'hazard reported' button on the home map? That would just be one click and at least alert other drivers that there is a hazard of aome sort. If other drivers have more time, they can then give a more detailed report.

  9. Hay usuarios que están declarando precios falsos de combustible y que son demasiado evidentes, por la proporción antigüedad/diferencia.

    Hay usuarios que están declarando precios falsos de combustible y que son demasiado evidentes, por la proporción antigüedad/diferencia de precio entre lo informado y lo real. Hay que regular qué usuarios pueden informar los precios. Que tengan un kilometraje mínimo requerido, que se pueda denunciar al usuario que lo hace, etc.

  10. Ads

    Sometimes in the destination suggestions box appears an ad for a store to which I never go, because sometimes the app takes a while in charging this ad, the app sends me to this store even if I chose my destination. It is very annoying and I’ve come late to work because of this.

  11. "trip purpose" identifiers that can be tagged to any trip

    ability to create a small group of "trip purpose" identifiers that can be tagged to any trip - i.e. "commuting" or "kids sports" or "company travel" so that a user could track, over time, their miles dedicated to specific activities. I would love to know how many miles I've driven to support my kids' hockey careers.

  14. Potholes Suck!

    Potholes are expensive and municipalities do not like to cover the property damage, neither do insurance companies....

    You should add the feature to report a pothole and send it to the county/state responsible.....this will help people avoid rim damage (like we did to the tune of ~$400) and so that municipalities can't deny the claim of damage with the lame excuse that "they didn't know" like Winston-Salem, NC did to us...

    Waze would save so much money for their users!

  16. Multiple nearby incidents

    Waze does not allow for reporting of multiple incidents of the same type in a short distance. If I report a car on the shoulder for example (or if there is already an existing report of said car) and I go to report a second one, if I'm still close enough to the first report it will limp them together. I feel like there should be a pop up saying "there is already report of a car on the shoulder in this area. Is this the same incident or are you reporting a new one?" And then allow me to…

  17. Fix Assistant Integration

    Hey, does your programming dept. have school credentials from ECPI instead of MIT? What's the hold up with fixing the location handshake between Waze and Google Assistant? You DO realize that OS 13 is being released by the end of the year. Let me guess, you're hoping that will fix the problem so your incompetence will fade into history! I've been back and forth with CS for MONTHS and have not heard a peep about this problem!

  19. Fewer taps to make a report

    When using CarPlay (or even my phone when I'm the right-side passenger), to report a vehicle stopped on the side of the road I must tap the orange "Report" circle, choose "Hazard," "Shoulder," "Vehicle Stopped." In CarPlay, when driving that takes my eyes from the road at least four times to identify/locate/push the appropriate button to make the report. Rather than spelling out the words for each part of the notice - perhaps readily identifiable icons could be "stacked" under the headings. As with "QWERTY," there are gestures/reports most often used that could be located in priority locations on the…

  20. Wildlife Near Road Alert

    We live out in the middle of nowhere OH and often see deer and other living wildlife near the road. Would love to see a button in the hazards to report "Wildlife Near Road." Think this would be helpful to many others!!!
