  1. Stop sending ads at traffic lights!

    I want to view my map and decided on my next turns at a stop light. The LAST thing I want to do is look at an ad. If I see an ad, I make a mental note to AVOID that place, even if I would have liked to stop there.

  2. Bring Back Apple Car Play Microphone

    PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE restore the microphone for use with Apple Car Play!!! I rely on this to get directions while driving - as I am certain countless others do as well - and it is a huge inconvenience not having it anymore. I bet you to please restore it!!!!

  5. Waze running in minimized state

    Allow waze to be running in the background, minimized while I have youtube open for example. That way I can still see the navigation.

    This is currently possible with Google Maps, by clicking on the home button on your phone while navigation is on.

    This would be great improvement for the app in my opinion.

  12. the "share ride" url is not properly URL encoded in text messages

    waze.com/ul=q=share drive ... there should be an underscore in "share_drive" or the asci code for space "share%20drive" to keep the url from breaking when shared in text messaging (observed in Google's Voice APP)

  17. Toll pass expiration date

    In Europe a lot of countries have passes for toll roads. These passes expire after some days, a momth or a year. There are very few applications notifying the user that the pass has expired an most of the purchases are paper/vignette based. Waze could do this, also warn the user on the main screen and ultimately do not plan routes that requires the pass to avoid fines.

  18. Multiple stops per drive

    Get rid of the 1 stop per drive cap. I don’t understand why anyone thought that was a good idea at all

  19. Make it so when you’re driving, you get alerts from the opposite side of the road.

    This would be extremely helpful so I don’t have to stare at the app to make sure there’s no issues on the other side of the road. I’d use this app a lot more if the is was available
