  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. "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"!

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  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

  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 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.

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. הגדרת סוג רכב מעל 4 טון ו/או הגדרת הימנעות מכבישים שמוגבלים לרכבים מתחת ל-4 טון

    צריך לאפשר לנהג להגדיר את סוג הרכב שלו כרכב כבד (בפרטי הרכב), בנוסף להגדיר מקומות שבהם הכביש מוגבל לרכבים מתחת ל-4 טון. כך נהג של רכב כבד לא יקבל מסלול שאינו יכול לעבור בו. אפשר גם, בדומה למעבר בכבישי אגרה/נתיבים מהירים, להוסיף אפשרות של הימנעות מכבישים לרכבים מתחת ל-4 טון (במקום לרשום פרטי רכב).

  17. 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.

  18. Night Mode on all User Interface Elements

    When you're in Night Mode the map is, essentially, reversed in color; light things are dark, dark things are light. This is not true for any of the other user interface elements. Search, popups, reporting... all are very bright and very distracting. These interfaces should also be reversed, that is, dark grey backgrounds with light gray text.

  19. Arrival Time Should Reflect Destination Time Zone

    I live near the line between Eastern and Central time. I'd really like the estimated time of arrival to take time zones into account. Right now, my arrival time jumps up by an hour when I go from CDT to EDT and down an hour when I go the other way.

  20. Display interstate/highway shields on client map.

    Right now the live maps can display highway shields with limited functionality. Adding this ability to the client maps (and expanding its scope, as right now it is only partially functional) would really make it easier to orient yourself when viewing the map.

    It would be nice if it was an option, as well... so you could disable it (like you can disable road goodies or other things) if you don't want to view them.
