  1. Add some information to voice instructions

    כשמגיעם ליעד מדוע לא להודיע: הגעת ליעד מימינך, משמאלך וכו. (היה לי מכשיר בקנדה שמודיע כך וזה היה מאד מועיל).
    ועוד: המכשיר גם מסר מה יהיה כתוב על השלט בו עלי לפנות. גם זה מועיל...

  2. Don’t limit posts and updates

    On a recent trip from Texas to Wyoming and back, I would post updates along the way. I saw a lot of things during this trip posting radar traps, accidents and traffic issues. But all of a sudden, Waze started complaining that I was posting too much and threatened to suspend my account. You see a lot of things driving hundreds of miles each day. So now I no longer post ANY updates at all. Let me just say, I was trying to provide my input to help others with information that doesn’t benefit me at all. Why would you…

  3. Skip inputting first and last name when signing into the app

    I do not use Facebook, but anytime I sign into the app on a device for the first time, it asks me to put my first and last name to search for contacts or connect to Facebook.

    First off, aren't you guys owned by Google? Why is there no Google+ option? It would also be great if I could just skip that step in case I don't want to use my name.

  4. City display size in relation to number of inhabitants

    At this moment it is difficult to find big cities on the map to orient yourself.

    With the text size of the city name in relation to the city size the readability of the map would improve a lot.

  5. Wazer vehicle description so we can actually wave to other wazers

    I can see the little Wazer icons on the map, but I am always wondering who around me is actually using Waze. How about an option to show our vehicle type or photo of our vehicle? If not that, what about a "Sonar" button to see how close we are to other wazers at any given moment? (think sonar on a submarine)

  6. Share route from web to app

    Sharing a route from the waze web let's you send only a link to open in browser. Would be helpful to share a link that will open in your app.

  7. Practical algorithm for police "heat map" implementation

    I realize that the "heat map" concept has been mentioned in the past and there are frequent postings about this concept. I did not find in my search of suggestions a practical algorithm to make this useful.
    I think that the postings of random cars on side of road and detritus in the road result in too frequent notifications that are distracting. I do not think that simply adding alerts for every known speed trap is useful.
    A useful modification would be to alert users of locations with frequent police sightings in the past say 30 days only if there…

  8. Police Officers & Traffic Officers.

    On U.K. motorways we have Police Officers and Highways Agency Traffic Officers. The Police enforce the law and deals with motorway incidents and Traffic Officers are there to help with incidents and assist motorists, but NOT enforce the law. Wazers are constantly highlighting Traffic officers instead of Police Officers when there is no need at all to point them out!! Yes they may look similar but they do not have the same responsibilities, their cars are different colours and their cars are not the same as the police. Please put a button on the hazards page for Traffic Officer or…

  9. Add address book labels for phone numbers when sharing trip

    I have recently shared trips with friends whose numbers I have in my address book, but numbers I wouldn't know. When I share my trip and search for my friend's name, I see that they have 3 phone numbers. Which one is their mobile? I have no idea! Why? because the numbers aren't labeled!

    I could pick one but I might be sending my trip to their work fax number. A lot of good that would do. The only thing I can do is exit the app, look them up in my address book, memorize their mobile number, re-enter Waze,…

  10. College marketing

    I hope you had a good holiday! I wanted to reach out about college/campus marketing and see if that was on your radar – campus influencers/brand reps for Waze. My company specializes in unique marketing campaigns specific to the college audience (18-24). We have TREMENDOUS reach in the space.

    We also work with Wholefoods, Sweetarts, Nudestix, Bed Head and other fun brands. I’d love to get on a short call to discuss what we do and how we help brands connect with the college-aged consumers.

    Do you have time to speak end of this week?

  11. Make Waze icon change appearance when Waze is 'asleep'

    Often I put Waze to sleep, or try, only to find out, hours later, that it woke up as I was leaving and it has been eating my battery for hours.
    Please figure out a way to change it icon's appearance so I know it is sleeping.

  13. I am so sad that I lost my calico cat icon when they pushed out the stupid batman experience. I lost it trying to go back to 'normal'

    I want my calico cat icon back. Please, we have to have a way to go back and get things after trying an 'experience'. I'm sorry I ever did it.

  14. Walkers + safety

    Hi,

    I can see that your app specializes on people who drive (use a car) on Cities, but in my city the majority of the people walk or used public transportation so I was thinking if you would like to add special features designed specifically for pedestrians with features of safety and suggestions of routes? I have an idea of how could it work!! please contact me if you are interested. Thanks, have a great day!

  15. Aggiornamento dei prezzi fatta da pirati avventori di inutili punti!

    Eppure, basterebbe non dare punti per chi aggiorna i prezzi dei carburanti senza correggere il prezzo. Ma che ci devono fa’ co’ ‘sti punti! Anzi, meglio: niente punti a nessuno. Chi li aggiorna, lo faccia per spirito di community, non per otto sfigati punti che non servono a niente. Oggi addirittura ne ho trovato uno con benzina a 1.256 e gasolio più alto. Ricordate quando hanno invertito la posizione dei prezzi? Quattro, cinque mesi fa? Era ancora così ma era stato appena dichiarato aggiornato dal solito pirata che nella mia zona se li fa tutti così. A mo basta. Qualcuno…

  16. Add tollbooth locations from menu

    In South Africa, we have a number of toll booths on our major roads. Would be very informative to know where they are.

  17. On Screen Gesture Reporting...

    Can you please consider adding on screen gestures to report the top 5 or 10 issues on the road. I added a screen sample on how this would look. http://i63.tinypic.com/2cmp6w9.jpg. If it could be customizable even better. The sample I sent is for reporting a Visible Police on the Road.

  18. New speed alert mode

    It would be nice if app can get something like new speed limit mode, allerting us (by sound) every 1/2/3 sec about excessed speed limit all the time, until car decrease speed. It will be very helpfull to avoid tickets and points but especially make road more safety.
