  1. Add reporting of coyote and bobcat sightings, and incidents where a predator attacked and/or killed a small pet in his/her backyard

    As the Phoenix Metro area continues to expand into land that was virgin desert, we are having to deal with the coyotes and bobcats who called these areas, “Home”. Unfortunately, rather than heading deeper into the desert, these creatures have discovered that outdoor cats and small dogs doing their, “Business” in their walled backyards to be easy prey. Even in heavily populated neighborhoods where homes were built 25+ years ago, an astounding number of people are dealing with the grief of losing a friend and furry family member.

    My husband came up with a great solution! He bought two coyote-proof…

  2. No Police!

    My suggestion is that you withdraw the possibility of marking the presence of the police. It is very irresponsible to give thieves this tool. Or do you think only good citizens use the application? You reduce everything the possibility of blitz (which is wrong to show, because drunk drivers kill a lot of people), but forget that armed thugs, hijackers and thieves will also avoid the police route not to get caught.

  4. That the expected arrival .... o'clock.

    Dear developer!

    Fuckit a very long time I use the application, is extremely proud of.
    My question would be:

    I often use this application so that it runs in the background and the display is turned off.

    It would be helpful if certain point of time as the application is expected to announce the time of arrival.
    Not too often to be annoying, but it can be switched off, this option could also be an option.

    I think that the destination is entered after the text greeting when the program thanks and good wishes your way, announce to the expected…

  5. Support for health conditions color ribbons as moods and national day of* icons

    Cancer, Gastroparesis, Type One Diabetes...etc all have ribbons, Wazers would like to support their causes by selecting a color ribbon as their vehicle mood And be able to select other moods icons in support of their favorite national holiday that Waze suggests when opening the app for the first time on the day of the holiday. See available holidays at nationaltoday.com for examples of fun national day of celebrations. Ex: Would have been fun to see all Wazers moods on map, looking like their favorite kind or color of donut on national donut day for instance.

  6. Aide aux usagers

    Serait-il possible d'ajouter une option lorsque nous sommes en difficultés ou avons besoin d'aide sur la route. Exemple: une personne fait une crevaison mais aurait besoin d'aide pour installer la roue de secours aux abords d'une route à laquelle les gens ne peuvent pas arrêter l'aider en la remarquant trop tardivement. En sachant d'avance, les gens pourrait venir en aide plus fréquemment.

  7. U TURN BUTTON

    Hello guys ! I work as an Uber driver in London, and I do many u turns . It takes a while, sometimes, untill the gps system recognises that . I think a U TURN button will be more than useful , if it will work in the background permanently and ready anytime to be pushed :) What do you all think about this ?

  8. Add Place Description Option for Online Ordering

    Many restaurants, fast food and otherwise, are adding the ability to order online in order to speed up visits. Waze could highlight places that provide this service, possibly providing any dedicated link to ordering websites. Of course this would require the complementary modification to the places function in the map editor. Then when searching for "restaurant," Waze could display an "order in advance" option. Since this may be beneficial to advertisers, it might be something that Waze could also use for revenue.

  11. Real Estate Broker Service

    I am a realtor-What if you did a pay service to brokers that they could plug in the Home Tour each week. Different cost scales-
    1. Level One- Waze provides service but is allowed to advertise
    2. Level Two- Paid service with no ads.
    3. Level Three- Paid service, but the realtor/broker can do own advertising/information that they provide for the tour.

  13. Use the accelerometers from the smartphones to get data of the pavement conservation.

    Like a small seismograph, the app can use a smart algoritm to monitor the quality of the pavement. This data can be used an accessed by user and can be sold to the government, mayors and engineering company's.
    You can make money using it. Send me some. Thanks a lot and good luck.

  15. Add an option to select a certain turn from which waze will start talking/turn silent

    Sometimes I want to start talking only from a point further on in my navigation(because I know where to go until that point).

  16. Optimal location for meeting

    Optimal location for meeting
    The purpose of my idea is to allow few people who arrived from different locations to meet in optimal location/s ( eg. Pub , restaurant …etc.) , optimal location means time take to arrive to optimal location will be more or less the same for all the people.
    I got this idea due to long discussion I manage with my friend every time we want to meet and each of us arrive from different location

    Few guidelines / comments regarding algorithmic:
    - Flexibility is required to allow to enter as much as possible number of people…

  17. Problems with road hazard

    In my country, after the winter snow, appears big holes in the road. So, everytime when i use "Waze" on the same place i must put the "Hazard - -> groapa (in romanian language)". And the next day, the same thing again. It must be an option to mentain that "hazard" until is fixed (one week, one month, etc), and a user to correct the problems.

  18. Demonstrations ahead

    For the safety of the demonstrators, and drivers, please allow Waze users to indicate demonstrations ahead. Goal is to have users avoid demonstrations to reduce and or eliminate traffic related injuries due to demonstrations.

  20. Advise distance to next speed camera - on main display - could be miles away

    Rather than just alert me .3 of a mile away, why not tell me "miles to next speed camera" - so I might know "on the current route, I've 10 miles to the next (known) speed camera - helpful!
