  2. When I take a call when using waze, after the call ends I get the lock screen instead of goign back to waze.

    When you recieve a call when using waze, after the call ends you get the lock screen instead of goign back to waze. it should go back to the map screen.
    Also, there sould be a button to get to the dialer without leaving waze.
    Other than that - great app. keep up the good work

  3. Toll roads alert

    A great feature would be the possibility to keep toll roads enabled but receive an alert when a route includes that kind of road (toll road)

  5. Stop changing language when you cross the border

    I don't know if it's my phone or waze, but I'm taking a trip around Europe and every time I cross a border the voice commands change language. And it's not even the language of the country, I'm in Italy now and it switched to French. My native tongue is Dutch but I'm from Belgium so I speak a bit of French but it would still be nice just to keep the language I selected.

  7. Allow a negative answer to carpooling

    I do not want to carpool. It won't work for me. The ONLY options that I have are to say that I do want to carpool now, or that I want to carpool later. I need to say 'no' and be done with it.
    Not to mention, I have been en route and the ad for carpooling obscured my screen. I think that's dangerous. Please let me say 'no' and enjoy a safe ride.

  8. Add multiple widgets for different addresses

    It would be great if I could add a widget for a specific address. Like the Google Maps Directions widget, it's a 1x1 widget that asks for an address and clicking that starts navigation to the specified location.

  9. Configurable sound outputs in Android App

    Currently, the Android App is working in an unsatisfying way:

    In the Settings menu, under Sound, I've enabled the option to play sounds using the phone's speaker.
    When I plug in my earphones in my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S6) I expect all sound to be diverted to the earphones, not being played in the public speaker.

    Waze does not behave like this. It plays the sound in the speaker regardless of the cable.

    My request is to let the user configure, in detail, where the sound should go.

    Output sound to:
    [ ] Speaker/headphones
    ( ) Speaker OR headphones…

  10. Voice Command to Say "Thank You" to Notifications

    Notifications by Fellow Wazers are really helpful. Waze should, accept THANK YOU voice Command and "Not there" Voice Command.
    "Pothole Ahead", Vehicle on Shoulder" are great notifications, however taking your eyes of the road to touch input the small ThumbsUP, is very unsafe.

  12. Multiple stops

    It would be nice to be able to input & edit multiple stops (like in Google maps) I love Waze but have to use Google maps for multiple stops, I also love Google maps but the maps are out of date and so many streets are missing ☹️

  13. Update reporting location

    It would be great to mark where the report is, example, after observing a police speed trap, we should be able to mark where the trap is. Now Waze assumes it is right where I am when making the report, but that is not accurate.

  14. Set-up - changing country

    Not an idea as much as a question. How I change the country if I picked the wrong one in the beginning? This app is useless with current setting and I can't seem to change it.

  15. toggle off carpool.

    Please find a way to toggle carpool option on or off. It is quite easy when checking your route or options available to pull up carpool by mistake and it adds a few extra seconds of distraction to get back to directions (safety hazard). I work for a limo company so obviously I cannot use the carpool option. Other than that I appreciate all the time that Waze helps me stay safe and save time

  16. Set existing favorite as "Home" or "Work"

    Right now, you can only set "Home" and "Work" by searching for an address. Most of the time, New Zealand (and I'm guessing other international addresses too) do not return an accurate result.

    The work around is to create another two favorites called home and work that are based off GPS position and use those.

    As a user, it would simply make sense for Waze to allow me to set a favorite as my "home" or "work".

  17. Enlarge Speed Limit Sign on Android Auto mode

    First, thank you for a truly remarkable navigation app!! And, for the new "Speed Limit" feature, especially when using Android Auto!"

    A suggestion for improvement:
    Please consider increasing the size of the Speed Limit sign. I find it very hard to see and with all the screen real estate available there should not be any reason not to.

    Thank you for your consideration of this idea and keep up the great work!

  18. Increase visibility area in landscape mode.

    While using waze on my smartphone (Samsung Galaxy Note 3), the device is on its side. I like to see the map in landscape mode. With the new update (version 4.0.0.2 installed) any warnings and the display of the names of streets COVERS a big part of the map. I suggest to enlarge the área of the map shown in landscape mode for smartphones at least.

  20. Correct Multi window (currently pauses)

    Can you please allow waze to work correctly in multi window mode.Android 7.1.1 if you have Waze open in a multi-window configuration, it wouldn't actually work as expected. As long as it had focus and was the last app you interacted with, Waze would work as expected, updating your location and orientation on the map. But if you interacted with another app in multi-window, Waze would stop updating until you go back to it.

    Similar issue with Google maps which just got fixed:
