  1. Create a "soft warning" for known situations.

    For example: A location where speed traps are consistently reported would have a warning in a radius such as "speed traps have been reported here." The color of the warning could fade from red to orange as reports decline or vice versa. There's one street I travel where there's a cop shooting radar 80% of the time. There could be a warning about that regardless of if a Wazer had been through recently.

  2. The Catalan voice is not good enough

    It is great to have Catalan as an option in the iPhone client (thanks!!) but the voice used is not good, as it mispronounces some sounds. The voice has a strong Spanish accent.

  5. Add "disabled vehicle" to Hazard -- Road

    Twice now I have come across vehicles stalled in the roadway. None of the categories in hazard -- road fits this case. I use "other" but that's not very descriptive.

  6. The name of the road to the client.

    Please do make that to create roads could soon Dowa name streets and roads in the client, and then edish record, but all do not remember the name.
    Sincerely, Alexander.

    Пожайлуста сделайте, чтобы при создании дорог можно было сразу довать название улицам и дорогам в клиенте, а то едишь записываешь, а название всех не помнишь.
    С уважением Александр.

  9. option for automatic bug reporting

    When waze displays a message that it has encountered a bug and asks me if I would like to send it the timer is very short and I often cant tap OK in time while driving.

    It would be great if there was a setting that allowed the user to select "always send bug/error reports"

  10. "Explore" Route and cookie munching

    Create a new type of routing for joy rides. The name could be "Explore".
    Waze will generate a route to the user discover his neighborhood and/or help improove waze with cookie munching.

    Rationale: many people get in their cars, bikes or bicycles and go for a ride, just for the pleasure, to know more about the neighborhood, to see some countryside etc. Currently no GPS device or app has a way to helping the users in this. This would be a differentiating feature for Waze and also would help improve Waze database with driving data.

    More details about the route: …

  11. Ability to choose a route vs. choosing a destination

    I take the same route from work to home everyday because it's the fastest way to beat the rush hour traffic flow. I always route to "home".

    Often, I am in the same general area as my workplace and trying to get home and waze puts me on the same roads that I would take take on my work -> home commute. But just as often, this isn't actually the faster way. It does this because it has learned my route preference for going from home to work.

    If, when heading home, I could choose a route (ie, "work to…

  12. Include reported time with notification popup

    When alerting the driver to a speed trap, accident, hazard, etc. with a popup notification it would be very informative to include the time these were reported or the age of the report (i.e. "Reported 48 minutes ago")

  13. Free road - Green road

    Let us see not only the traffic jams. Let us see the free road. Free roads may be highlighted in green. This will help to better assess the condition of the roads.

  14. Add the ability to travel via a location

    Just as you can with other SatNav software I like to use the Travel Via option to avoid certain areas or I prefer a certain route.

  15. Petrol station prices

    I use this app every day http://itunes.apple.com/it/app/prezzi-benzina/id373044013?mt=8 to find a the best petrol station in terms of price.
    From my point of view, this app should be integrated in Waze.

  16. When reporting map errors, allow short voice recording

    Many map errors reports have little or no description, as it requires too much dirver atention.

    If the the user to record an audio description, which can be downloaded/listened to/transcribed in Cartouche.

  17. Ad a ”hide me at this address" function

    Suggestion: Make an option to hide me from view to all other wazers within a radius of ?200? meters from a selected address
    Why: For example, At home I want to follow my wife/husband coming from work, and I turn waze on, now everyone can see where I (my nickname) live. From there it is easy to track me when I am home or out at it becomes easy to track my routines.
    In the long run it would be nice if accepted friends could se you at home, and that you could choose our own radius.

  19. night icon

    The car icons are not very visible both on the day and the night maps. It would be helpfull if I would be able to select two icons: for day/night maps
    Another work around would be a white silhouette around the icon, so that a blue icon will be more visible over a a blue route, and a red one will be visible on a traffixc jam.
    A Zebra icon (like a British police car) can also be visible - yet less populare...

  20. Add intelligence to traffic jam detection

    Often users parked will cause a false traffic jam to be reported, yet when stuck in traffic it is usual to be crawling or moving occasionally.

    When Waze detects traffic conditions and pops up the question of whether you are in traffic please change the default response dependant on whether the vehicle has been moving or not. If it has been totally stationary please set default response to 'No' as in a total traffic jam the driver will most likely spot the dialogue, only use 'Yes' as the default action when there has been some movement which is much more…
