    Have you thought about a walking mode button.So if you have waze on you don't get false data that traffic is at a stand still when you are walking.

        • Samsung Gear S2 integration

          I'd like Waze to integrate with the Samsung Gear S2, which is on the Tizen OS. Most particularly, I'd like vibrate reminders of upcoming turns. Also, navigation initiation and address lookup would be useful.

          I'm using the device with a Nexus 6 on Marshmallow.

          • Tasker intergration

            Tasker is a automation system for Android based on profiles that contains states and actions.

            For instance when Tasker sees the bluetooth in my car it begins to reject most calls, reads texts aloud me, and sends a automated reply. Currently that reply just says I will get back to them when I reach my destination. Waze knows that destination and my ETA. I would like to send that in the automated texts. I would also like for Tasker to be able to tell Waze a destination. Using this info it would also be possible for Tasker to do events…

              I would love to see WAZE as an option for Android Auto in place, or in addition to Google Maps for Android Auto!!! Will Waze ever be an option on Android Auto??

                • Allow option to use device's TTS voice synthesis

                  The Waze Android client has a decent sounding voice, but Android users can install 3rd party TTS apps. Please give us the option to choose to use the Android Text To Speech synthesis instead.

                  • Make Waze continue running in background untill it is turned off

                    I use my phone for more than just Waze when I'm driving. Waze does not consistently run in the background when I switch to control another app (even when I'm driving on the highway at 65 mph). I'd really like to see an option in settings to keep Waze active until I manually exit. Alternatively, how about an option that keeps Waze active as long as my phone is in the car dock?

                    • audio alerts for everything

                      It would be nice to have audio alerts for all activity in waze. If there is a traffic jam ahead alert me vocally, same for car on shoulder etc.

                      I say this because I ride a motorcycle and am not able to view my screen (also it would take my attention from the bike). I would like to be audibly alerted of everything such as speed cams, cops, blah blah :)

                      • Display address you're navigating to when you get near your destination

                        Often times I get close to my destination and I don't remember the exact house number I'm looking for. It would be nice if when Waze prompts that you're nearing your destination, that it would display the address you put in to navigate to so you can look for the house number as you get close to your destination.

                        • Waze Support for the Parrot Asteroid

                          The Parrot Asteroid is a great car stereo based on android, however the unique nature of the device limits it's online apps to those that specifically support it. Currently the Asteroid has no turn by turn navigation. Waze's powerful mapping and reporting features would greatly benefit users of the Parrot Asteroid and raise awareness for both Parrot and Waze.

                            • North up should be persistent between sessions

                              I want to be able to use North up as default map orientation. This can be set manually in the client, but has to be specified every time the program is started. It would be nice if this setting could be persistent, or could be set in settings.

                              • Using the smartphone's front camera for alert about driver's tiredness

                                In Android there is a feature named "smart stay" which allows the smartphone to recognize, using the front camera, if the user is watching the screen (in order to turn off the screen when not in use) - see
                                http://www.androidcentral.com/how-use-smart-stay-galaxy-s3

                                I wonder whether it would be possible to create a similar function in Waze, that would recognize (by visually recognizing when the eyes close for longer than a fraction of second) and alert if the driver falls asleep. If this is possible (even partially), it can save lives.

                                באנדרואיד יש אפשרות בשם "שהות חכמה" שמאפשרת לסמארטפון לזהות בעזרת המצלמה הקדמית…

                                  • Full screen buttons for reporting (or even the menus)

                                    Make the reporting menu fullscreen and rearrange the layout so that it becomes easier to press a button.
                                    You could do the same thing to the main menu as well. Makes it easier to navigate through the menus while driving...

                                    • Option to disable prompt "vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead".

                                      Option to disable prompt "vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead". Very distracting and not useful information in my opinion. During my daily commute (42miles) through I-695, I-70,US-29, I-492 and I-270 there are up to 15! disabled vehicles and the prompts are getting truly annoying.

                                      • When reporting police / speed trap, offer "middle" or "median" instead of only "my lane" and "other lane" so both directions can be notified

                                        Many times police sit in the median and are watching both directions on a highway, a "middle" option for lane would be beneficial so both directions can be warned of a speed trap.

                                        • I would love to see Waze on the Samsung Gear S3.

                                          As far as I can tell, the Gear S3 can be purchased with a Data plan via AT&T, so theoretically it would be possible to use Waze on a smart watch with both GPS and Data. I would absolutely pay for a smartwatch version of your app, as would many other people! Having my phone out to use Waze when commuting daily is a bit cumbersome, but using it on a smart watch just to keep an eye out for traffic / police would make me use it every time I step foot in my car. I truly hope you…
