  1. disable "not there" for abusers or non-contributers

    For those who harass police sighting users of waze by FALSELY clicking "not there" the button clicking privilege ought be revoked until they are other than counterproductive

    identify them by their sole use of police related report by not-thefe and entire lack of contributing reports

    Also detect stationary officers who not-there themselves

  2. Different scoreboards for editors, drivers and forum

    It has been noticed before that the Waze-community is divided between editors and drivers; editors being the users that earn most of their points by editing, drivers are those that earn most of their points behind the steeringwheel.

    Currently, the scoreboard seems to be dominated by drivers - the topnotch of these are probably truckers, spending their live on the road, driving maybe thousands km per week, making up to 20.000 pts. There is nothing wrong with that, we NEED drivers, and I do not want to suggest that they do not earn their points.

    But for editors these are…

  5. Weather overlay

    I would love to have a real time weather overlay on the WAZE maps. This would be a GREAT feature to add to aid in knowing more about driving conditions. Please vote and let's see what we can do to make it happen.

  6. Android Auto - Use Car Antenna

    Right now, when connecting to Android Auto, Waze still uses the phone GPS antenna. In comparison, Google Maps pulls the location from the headset/car antenna, which is often placed optimally to maximize GPS signal strength from within the car.

    Please set Waze to use the car's GPS antenna when connected via Android Auto

  7. "EV Charging" instead of "Gas Stations"

    You can already tell Waze that you're driving an electric vehicle... so why do I still see "gas stations" as an option? Google Maps already has EV charging station POIs - let us select "EV Charging" instead of "gas stations"!

  9. Sync with Google "my places"

    it would be great to be able to sync the places already stored in google's my places. So you don´t have to search for them separately and have them at hand even quicker.

    more advanced: sharing your places with friends or family members across devices would be great.

    finally: being able to save places on the webinterface and syncing to user devices would be nice

    waze rocks - keep up the good work!

  10. Waze bicycle alert feature

    Waze bicycle alert feature
    For use with waze navigation app
    This feature would Alert wazers to upcoming bicyclist in their path much like other alerts (police,potholes). Having drivers report bicyclists location in the same manner as other alerts would be of little use as bicyclist generally travel between 10-20mph. The bicyclist would need to log into the app and identify them self as a bicyclist or as a bicyclist for the next trip. The bicyclist location would then be shown in Waze as a bicyclist and would provide an approaching driver with an alert. Some additional features would need to…

  11. Waze only friends

    Hello, I would like to be able to make friends with Wazers without having them also be facebook friends. To me they are seperate applications and do not want to mix them. Eg. work aquaintainces who I don't necessarially want to facebook friend them but use Waze. Also I have "real" friends who refuse to use facebook but I want to have them use Waze and friend them that way.

  12. Average Speed / ANPR Camera Reporting

    As well as normal Gatso type speed cameras, increasingly automatic number plate recognition / average speed cameras are used in the uk. Being able to report them & their speed limit, and having a notification that you're within the average limit would be priceless.

  13. Alphabetize favorites

    It is so hard to find a favorite address that you have saved and would be great if they were in alphabetical order.

  14. Update the "Map editors" colour scheme to the new colours of the Waze Map Editor.

    The roads colours on the Waze Map Editor have changed. So the colour scheme named "Maps editors" should be updated accordingly.

  15. Remove Chit-Chat option for Iranian users

    The Iranian people use this option for political purposes and insult to each other and racism. This has led Iran's government to ban this great app in the country.

  16. In honor of White Cane Safety Day, create a alert to drivers that notifies the driver a person using a white cane is ahead.

    A person with a visual impairment can log on to the app and WAZE will track the user as they walk.
    A driver using the app is notified when a person using a white cane is nearby.

  17. Destination house number appear

    I have noticed many times that once you arrive to your street destination, it doesn't display the house number. This is really annoying, because I am a delivery driver. So once I hit the street, I have to grab my clipboard and look at the invoice to see the house number.

    I would imagine this is a easy fix and would help wazers out.

  18. Protest the removal of the police warning feature!

    The Sheriff's association is using the tired old excuse that the police warning feature in the Waze app "could be used by terrorists." That is a RIDICULOUS excuse! The truth is that they just don't want us having the ability to warn others about their friggin' speed traps, and they don't want us avoiding tickets! Terrorists my shiny white butt! They use all of their technology against us, and then when we have something to use against them they just don't like it. This feature in Waze is just the next step above radar detectors. Well we got those and…

  19. Open up Waze to developers so we get third party plugins!

    Would be amazing if Waze allowed other developers to integrate their software AND hardware to use with Waze.

    Escort radar has their own app where if you hold a button on their radar detector, it'd report it on their cloud to other Escort users that a police is spotted.

    However, having to have two apps loaded at a time makes it very difficult to catch alerts from both apps at the same time. Opening up an SDK or API on Waze and allowing other companies and developers to integrate with Waze would allow Waze to dominate the industry.

    With this…
