  1. Are you in traffic?

    When the system asks if you are in traffic?? you can answer yes or no. For the amount of times that you have stopped for a coffee or gas and there is no traffic...instead of the system assuming you are and then saying that "First street" is at a standstill...make the automatic answer no, then if we are we can answer yes. I think this will reduce the fake high traffic areas people complain about

  2. Event alerts-"On Route" as a default

    I am tired of seeing like 22 event alerts (cops, traffic, etc.) while driving my inputed route. when I hit the red exclamation mark it takes me to them and then I can select "On Route" to find out which one's only apply to the way I'm going...why not make the "On Route" button the default instead of "Around Me"???

  4. Automatically start/stop reporting on bluetooth connect/disconnect

    Please consider a settings option to report traffic only if exact bluetooth device (my car HF) is connected. This could be very useful feature to avoid false traffic reports.

    Settings:
    - Turn feature ON / OFF
    - Choose BT device

    Behaviour:
    - When exact bluetooth device is connected, wait until some ratelimit speed is reached (i.e. 30 kmh) and start reporting.
    - When bluetooth device is disconnected, automatically stop traffic reporting.

  5. Delayed reports

    While you're driving, you haven't time to report. So it would be great if I can touch the screen to hold the real place where a report have to be placed. So you can complete the report when you stop.

  7. Add integration with Geocaching.com

    Add the ability to automaticly find caches along a route. A feature to get the most caches AND Waze points in X number of miles driven would be a fun driving adventure.

  9. Event notification pop-up.

    Current event notification covers the majority of the center screen, obstructing view of where the event is specifically located. Adding transparency or moving to a ticker at the top or bottom of screen would be a great improvement.

  10. Allow other users to send address to my handheld client

    Allow facebook friends, waze group members, etc. to send an address to my handheld client if I am online.
    1) When an address is recieved by the client, ask the user to accept the route, reject the route or block all address pings.
    2) If I don't have a route set, auto accept the aaddress after 10 seconds.
    3) Add a new category to the Address Search dialog similar to My Favorites, Recent searches, Contacts, etc. List the received addresses for easy access.

  11. Automatic switch between sleep and unsleep mode

    It would be great (for saving autonomy) having a mode which turn the device screen into sleep mode (if Waze is active on the screen) and come back into active mode before some interesting action, such as a junction, an off ramp to drive, or eating roadgoodie. In the best case, the time the screen become active again would be dependant of speed.

  12. show custom waypoints from GPX file

    I'd like to be able to display custom waypoints from a GPX file on the map. This would be useful for geocachers.

  13. Color/Icon for landmarks

    It would be great to make different colors for different classes of landmark. Or to use scale-independent icons for (for example) gas stations.

    I cannot visually separate the supermarket and it's parking.

  14. Allow to change displayed road thickness.

    Otherwise some roads and small roads are so fat on screen that they block some gas stations and others. Would be great to change how fat are roads displayed. Thank you.

  15. Add option to stop scanning of reports when not moving.

    Please add a possibility to stop scanning of reports when not moving. It can be annoying sometimes. I just want to observe surround streets while standing. And it also consumes additional traffic. Thank you.

  16. camera first

    As a user option, allow me to open camera immediately upon press of REPORT button (as opposed to choosing the report type). This way the photo op won't be gone by the time I fumble through the type of report to submit. After photo is taken, I'll choose the report type, type in the details, and submit everything.

  17. when driving fast on highway, don't show side streets

    When driving fast on a highway, the side streets and names clutter the screen and are not necessary. Removing them would probably also save data usage.

  18. Make Primary Streets/Streets Visible from Farther Zoom Levels

    In client, streets and primary streets disappear after zooming out only a few levels. Similar to Google Maps when zoomed out, streets are still visible from farther zoom levels, just scaled down appropriately.

  19. Interchange guidance method in ver. 2.2 is wrong. Revert to 2.0 method.

    In version 2.2 (Android & iPhone) the written guidance in interchanges was changed. It tries to look-ahead and gives guidance based on the ramp exiting the interchange.
    This is inconsistent with the way guidance worked in version 2.0 and therefore inconsistent with the ramp's naming in the Waze map. It leads to confusing guidance that does not match the actual road signs.
    This is really dangerous as it increases drivers' confusion in the interchange.
    Please revert the guidance method to the way it was in version 2.0

    For details see http://www.waze.co.il/forum/viewtopic.php?f=30&t=9996&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=15#p59430 (in Hebrew)

  20. Show exit numbers

    I would like it if the navigation list and map showed the exit number that I needed to take, rather than just "turn right".
