  1. More obnoxious speed limit warning

    Sound when exceeding speed limit by set amount is a great option, but very easy to miss the warning. Instead of a short beep, Please add an option to select the sound, option to repeat sound until under set speed overage, and a flashing screen or other obnoxious ongoing visual warning. This would have saved me a ticket and be very beneficial as no other app does this.

  2. I would like to see an option to add altitude and temperature

    I drive in the mountains quite often and would like to see the current altitude and temperature change. This would be an option in the same section as the speedometer that you could turn them off.

  3. Custom Alert Notification Sounds

    Add the option to set specific sounds from the phone's notification sound files for specific alerts. e.g. set a specific notification sound for the over speed limit alert

  4. Add average speed zone indication on screen to Android auto

    In Android auto the average speed zone is announced by voice but there is no indication on screen like in the "normal" waze. So you don't know how long the zone is and if you respect the speed.

  5. When the volume bar is dragged to zero, the navigation voice directions still lower the volume of my music. Please change this.

    I use the navigation, visually, but not the voice. As I can not find a mute button, I have instead dragged the volume slider all the way to 0.

    I then listen to music on my phone in the background through car speakers. Whenever there is a voice navigation queue, although the voice has no volume so I can't here it, waze still lowers the volume of my music for the duration of the direction, as such, my music seems to just lower the volume periodically which is rather annoying.

  6. Add Podcast Addict (Android app) as an audio app integration

    I use "Podcast Addict" - a popular app among Android users for listening to podcasts - frequently in the car but there is no integration with Waze like there is with Spotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher, etc. Can this app be added as an audio integration?

  7. Offline Usage

    I really liked your app and interface, but unfortunately I deleted my account as it does not work offline.
    I wish you had the option of using it offline as HERE We Go maps does. I know real time traffic and updates would not be available, but the directions would still be.
    Maybe look into this and I, and I believe others, would come back/join.

  8. Sound alert more configurable

    it would be nice if you could add an option that you choose how far you get the alarm (500m , 1km, 2km before the spot)
    .. Even add a option that you choose when you get the alert (everytime, above the speed, never)

    And it would be nice if you make a sound alert for other report, not just the radar.. everything that we can choose to get the alart or not in settings.

  9. Inclusão de recurso Desviar de rota

    Sugiro a inclusão de um recurso que possibilite aos usuários evitar determinado trajeto ou via, uma opção em que se possa marcar uma determinada rua, avenida, estrada etc onde o planejamento de rotas do aplicativo evitará ao programar a rota para o destino solicitado. Locais de difícil acesso, com muito buraco, ou em áreas consideradas perigosas poderiam ser marcadas pelo usuário e até mesmo repassadas a outros usuários que seguissem rotas semelhantes.

  12. Add a music player which can play local files, such as VLC

    The new music player feature looks nice, but it only seems to support streaming apps, with no apparent way to play media stored locally on the device. VLC is one such media player which supports a wide range of file formats, but there are many others.

    Please support at least one such app for those of us who don't want to use streaming services.

  14. Have music control buttons on the UI or as a fly-out.

    Have music player interface buttons in the UI. I use my phone for entertainment and NAV guidance. Having to switch between is a pain.

  16. Android Auto Waze: Navigate to Contacts

    If I use the regular Android Waze app, I can search for contacts and navigate to their address. If I use Android Auto Waze, contacts are not returned in the search. This would be an incredibly useful feature, as my customers I need to visit are all in my contacts.

    I am using Waze 4.27.0.1 in Android Auto mode with Ford Sync 2.2.

  17. Long distance routing

    I use Waze frequently around town and short trips, its GREAT! I also travel longer distances and Waze will not allow me to setup a route for those trips. Google Maps does, so it is certainly possible. Id love to be able to use Waze for this. Currently I run both simultaneously but switching back and forth while driving is dangerous.

  18. Shipping Locations: Optional Photo

    By submitting via a local application, make mandatory the address location of the fill and make sending the photo an optional, because sometimes we have the time and calm to report when we got inside the place, or parked in a location that does not have the ability to send the photo of the facade, or is night, it's raining etc ...
    This prevents photos "nothing", interior or wrong.
    Thus, passing the place, you could have an option to skip the photo, in the address field, making it mandatory.

  19. samsung's car mode

    Could you make Waze an option to set as the default navigation app and have it so it can be loaded into Samsung's Car mode. Currently can only use Google Maps and another Samsung app. Would much rather have waze be the default navigation app.
