  1. Heads up Display (HUD)

    make an heads up display icon so that the user can place it on their dash and the reflection will show up on the windshield.. for night time driving whee it is safer to stare closer to the road versus looking down...other apps use this idea but they dont have the GPS ability..it will set waze apart from all other GPS systems..and make it look extra cool!

  2. disable popups

    Please provide the means to disable popups. I like the flags. The popups block half the screen, are irrelevant, and recenter the map.

  3. Ability to increase font size.

    Those of us who see distance fine but need reading glasses could use the abolity to increase street name and POI size. It's one if the reasons why I don't use Waze as often as I'd like to.
    Many thanks

  4. turn off photo request at destination

    The "add photo" when you reach your destination is annoying, and unnecessary. Please give an option to disable.

  5. Favorites in iOS widget

    It would be awesome to see more than just work and home in the iOS widget. I would like to see my favorites listed as well with the same functionality offered for home and work.

  6. Add a feature to announce or indicate the side of the street the destination is on.

    It would save so much time and be safer if I knew what side of the street my destination was on. The address should tell waze anyway so I believe this data is already available.

  7. "Open in Waze" - modify the Waze code so a user can click and hold on an address and be given the option to "Open in Waze" for navigation.

    "Open in Waze" (or "Navigate to in Waze") would merely allow the user to click and hold on an address in their phone and be given the option to open the address within Waze itself.

    A user currently can open an attachment in an email in numerous different downloadable programs. The same is true for address which currently default to the Maps app. It would be nice to see the same integration with Waze.

    Then, whenever a person receives a text, email, or other message with an address within it, the user would be able to click and hold on…

  9. Option to Remove CarPool Guy from main screen

    Option to remove carpool guy from main screen on the Waze app. I don't car pool so I don't need the carpool icon on my screen at all times.

  10. Please put in place a repeat command/direction.

    Directions/commands are sometimes hard to hear or missed. A repeat function is essential and absolutely necessary!

    Thank you.

    iOS native Apple Music is currently not available as an “Audio Player” option in the Waze app. What gives! Give us Apple Music control !

  12. Search of Favorites will be easy, if they are automatically save in alphabetical order.

    I have to travel frecuently, so I save my favorites using first three letters for the city and then the name of the location. Will be easy to find them if waze show my favorites in alphabetical order.

  13. Be able to "drop a pin" at current location and add to favorites

    It'd be good to be able to drop a pin at current location and give it a name and add it to favorites. The current method of having to do addresses or POI searches is not always workable--especially on small form-factor devices.

  14. Remove Passenger Confirmation

    I love this app…with one exception of the completely pointless, totally useless, down right idiotic passenger confirmation box to allow inputs while moving. Really? Everywhere else in the app this doesn't come up. Waze is the ONLY app I've use that polices text and speech-to-text input ability while moving. You might as well interject after the passenger confirmation "Uh-oh! You're a passenger please confirm you've buckled your seat belt." but don't want to forget to confirm this after: "Uh-oh You're a passenger with a seat belt on, please confirm that you're not sitting in the front seat if you're younger…

  16. "Stop running in the background" switch on iOS

    Hi. I found that Waze continues to run and use GPS and 3G signal while backgrounded on the iPhone. This is catastrophic in our country for two reasons: 1. It keeps the phone very hot. 2. it uses data at about 0.15 USD/MB, thereby ticking down your data and using up your money. You have to explicitly turn it off or explicitly quit the app. There should be a switch that says, and is by default, set to "Do not run or use data or GPS in the background". My experience: I used Waze to get to a destination. I…

  18. Incorporate BMW/MINI Connected into Waze.

    I'm not suggesting that the map show on the screen, just the ability to report events and respond to questions such as traffic slowdowns. Ok, and maybe start nav...

    Much safer than having to look down at the phone.

  19. A real-time weather overlay - live radar maps for weather conditions along a planned route

    Why is a real-time weather overlay not available on any generally available GPS navigation app? This would allow us to see real time weather map data/weather conditions overlaid along our planned routes so we can decide whether to re-route, stop for a while, avoid hail/tornadic weather, etc. It seems that this should have been available along time ago. To me it would be a feature that I would pay for if necessary.

  20. Allow a longer delay before voice prompts

    When using my iPhone with bluetooth handsfree kit, I miss the first word of each prompt while the kit detects bluetooth audio and mutes my radio in the car. Please increase delay between starting the announcement (or add a selectable option to do so) to overcome this problem.
