      • Add Electric Charging station location info.

        As as EV driver, it would be nice if electric charging station locations was built into the app so I don't have to go to yet another app just for this info. The data is widely available from here

        http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/electricity_locations.html

        and here

        http://www.plugshare.com/

        and here

        http://www.chargepoint.com/

        One problem is there is not one site that has all the info, so I'm forced to check all three. Having all this data within Waze would allow me to stay inside the app without having to leave it.

        • Mirror link support!

          Most newer vehicles are coming from the factory with mirrorlink, support for mirrorlink would alow me to use waze with my factory touch screen. Much like the pioneer support. Having this as I'm sure for others would allow us to use waze all the time!

          • Add pause option for stops

            Add pause option to client, that could be activated when stopping by at a gas station or other places, so that heavy traffic is not indicated. It could unpause automatically when the car start moving

              was not uploaded on 2.2, but still under consideration for the next version.

            • Increase police warning distance

              Waze users are warned of speed traps or police presence only about 600 feet ahead of time. This is far too late of a warning. With a clear line of sight, law enforcement can detect speeders at 1-2 miles out.

              By the time the Waze warning pops up, you could have already been detected.

              This feature – while very well intentioned and thought out – is useless with so little warning.

                • police: trailing/leading (in motion vs stationary)

                  Reports of stationary police are nice, but reporting highway patrol on the prowl with that feature is untenable.

                  Please consider a feature to report actively pacing highway patrol with modifier for leading (ahead of officer), or trailing (behind officer).

                  There should be an option to anonymize the report should one be traveling WITH- or accelerating AWAY from- the highway patrol at speeds exceeding posted limits.

                  • Save and later upload client data for areas with limited cell and/or Wi-Fi only users.

                    The amount of data saved currently is insufficient to allow mapping of vast rural areas. Saving this data when storage is available and later uploading will speed the completion of your goals.

                      This is already working, though not properly and all devices. We are working on improving waze behavior in areas where the connectivity is not good, however, you will still have to start a new waze session with a connection .

                    • New Report options

                      Please add following option for reporting:

                      Hazard -> Weather -> Ice On Road - REALLY important in my country

                      Hazard -> Weather -> Flooded Road - also REALLY important

                      Hazard -> On road -> Road Closed ahead - this could be abused, so should be discussed in function

                      Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Curve - most are marked by road signs but driver could choose to get extra warning from Waze! for example it would really help when visibility is poor!!

                      Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Intersection - maybe Black Point (a point where a lot of accidents…

                        • dead reckoning (when neither data nor GPS available)

                          There are zero map apps that offer dead reckoning:

                          continue navigation when neither GPS nor data (mobile or wifi) are available. Useful also when insufficient GPS birds viewable.

                          + compass
                          + accelerometer
                          + time

                          optionally

                          * orientation (for fixed mounts)

                          Given availability of map data those are enough to continue navigation:

                          . in tunnels
                          . in parking structures
                          . in box canyons

                          This is especially beneficial for those who do not have (no longer have) aGPS [assisted GPS] features.

                          But dead reckoning will benefit even those with aGPS.

                            In many many streets in Latin America as in other Europe countries, in the same city could be a lot of different streets with the same name, the only info that differs them is the name of the neighborhood or suburb. It would be awesome if you guys could fit that info.

                              Add option, that would:
                              - enforce event pop-ups (such as accidents, etc.) to show only if they happen on the current route to destination (no need to se events in radius when not on the route)
                              - display only number of events (under the icon with the red excl. mark) relevant to the current route to destination (this would help user open the live info only when there is a number indicating something going on on the route

                                • Privacy zone: stop reporting *near* home/work‏

                                  Having read the Waze ideology of location reporting at journey endpoints with respect to privacy I have deemed it wanting greatly.

                                  Please consider a feature to allow one to create flexible (arbitrarily variable) zones around one's home, workplace, church, etc, where upon entering one's position is no longer publicly visible.

                                  I am confident a variation of this will mitigate privacy journey endpoint concerns

                                    • Dangerous areas in Brazil

                                      Unfortunately we have some problems about some dangerous areas... Another person got killed because of a bad route... http://g1.globo.com/rio-de-janeiro/noticia/2015/10/relembre-ataques-de-bandidos-do-rj-motoristas-e-passageiros-perdidos.html
                                      I think waze could have an option to avoid these unsafe areas...

                                      • send XMPP message when nearing destination (Jabber)

                                        some people are offended by outdated technology that requires one to pay for unwanted messages (sms).

                                        It is beyond inane to use sms on a smartphone when XMPP is far more featured, FREE, secure.

                                        Waze could further advertise the service with its own XMPP server. This would facilitate such messages, enhance social features, and expand the wondedful world of federation. Prosody and Tigase are great server options.

                                        http://wiki.xmpp.org
